Designer of bullet train, Kikkoman soy sauce bottle has died:

This is a seriously fascinating obit. I didn’t realize that the guy who designed the Kikkoman tabletop soy sauce bottles also designed: a signature Yamaha motorcycle, the Tokyo/Japan bullet train, many logos.

Also: he used to be a monk and found ideas for many of his designs from post-atomic-bomb Hiroshima.

Color palette tutorial time!

This is by no means the Only Way To Pick Colors—it’s just a relatively-simple method I use sometimes.  I’ve found it works pretty well, almost regardless of what colors you pick—as long as you can keep them organized by those light/dark warm/cool categories, and make sure one category takes up a significantly higher proportion of page space, it usually turns out pretty good!

I struggled with color for a long time before eventually reaching this conclusion, and here it is all laid out nicely for you lucky people by the talented and Eisner-nominated Melanie Gillman. So listen to them!

Also useful for websites.

Everybody likes logos. Everybody wants their own logo. Everybody wants to make their own logo. Everybody has a computer and some fonts. Anybody can make a logo. What makes designers think they are so

This has to be the most pissed off designer post I’ve ever seen. It’s sort of hilarious.
