In our continual effort to teach you and anyone else who might benefit about your computer, here is a set of 4 general cases by which you will inevitably get a virus on your computer. Don’t be one of these four people, not only because viruses suck, but also because we don’t have any cartoons detailing how to get them off of your computer.

As designers, sometimes we forget the impact of innovative design. More importantly, we forget how to be innovative designers. Design has the power to solve problems through creative thinking. It works to make things function to their fullest potential by studying its form, function, and content.

The founder of the Fuseproject , Yves Behar, teamed up with Puma to create a new packaging design for Puma’s shoes and apparel. The packaging system they created solves some of the most difficult issues facing the retail industry in regards to sustainability and environmental harm: packaging, and more specifically shoeboxes. Take a look at the video after the jump to get a better insight to this innovative design and potentially world changing idea towards a more sustainable retail industry.


Teach Your Parents Tech

You’re doing the right thing by being the good son/daughter this Christmas and buying your folks a new laptop or desktop. I’m sure they’ll be super psyched about your thoughtfulness. There’s one downside to your gift giving though. Your parents don’t know how to do a few basic things on this new contraption. Google has you covered with their Teach Parents Tech site.

It allows you to teach them how to do basic things like upgrade their browser, resize a picture and share really big files. Just check off the boxes and select the videos you think they need. Google prepares the email for you and sends it along to them saving you the hours of time you otherwise would have had to spend on the phone teaching them how to use their new computer.

If you used a Macintosh in the 1980′s chances are you saw this icon when you booted up. Susan Kare designed them for Apple’s operating system back in the day and is now selling them as art prints.


Note Cards

Connecting science and art.

You thought your name was bad.

History Class: 50 years ago today, Yuri Gagarin manned the very first flight to put a human in space.

Apparently all famous men must own a motorcycle.

High speed solutions result inĀ endless growth.

Really nice post about us from the lovely and talented duo known as Eight Hour Day.

This is the exact kind of creepy note card that needs to be posted at 3 am.

Make some noise for the new Beastie Boy’s Track

New show up at NSAG!

I love spandex, and the new Destroyer music video.

A ton of people have been moving across the U.S. from one place to another. Did your county lose or gain folks?

NASA has a train for Space Shuttle stuff, and its basically a massive slow moving bomb.

I’m not sure what the concepts were, but these stock photos are unusable.

Amazing photos, before we had Instagram

Moonwalking is cool and all, but I want to Space Walk.

Don’t park in these spaces. TKO Advertising will tow you away in hilarious fashion.

This may very well be the coolest Space Shuttle launch photograph ever taken.

See what happened at the Fader Fort over SXSW, starring Will Bryant.
