Design Chick's Blogaboo!

Archive for September 2011

I always knew online gamers had something up their wizard sleeves. Behind those sweaty palms and cheeto-stained chins, there are mad scientists at work – and they may just be the key to huge advancements in aids research! What?! how is that even POSSIBLE?! it’s possible, and it happened. Using the online game foldit, gamers accuratley predicted the structure of a retroviral enzyme that has stumped scientists for more than a decade –  wow I bet those scientists feel really dumb. for real. Experts are saying this discovery could also spark new projects between scientists and gamers across the planet! (or the ENTIIIIIIRE UNIVERSE, according to the gaming nerds). So go visit a local gamer near you and give them a pat on the back for a job well played, and maybe stay for a crustless peanut butter sandwich and sunny-D lunch prepared lovingly by their mother – thanks mom!

Butter Is our new guest blogger! He will be covering all things sports!  Before I bring him in, perhaps you would like to learn a little more about him. Butter was born in a small small town, too small to even describe. He has a pet hamster named frank, and he loves the musical les miserables!  Butter, what would you like to say?

Butter: “in the words of Kenny Powers, YOU’RE FUCKIN OUT!”

Thanks Butter! Stay tuned blog universe from more from our good friend butter.

This is funny because old people are funny.  I am going to be old one day so I am allowed to say that.

Give it a watch.  You won’t be disappointed!

We were featured on design edge!  What what!

Unfortunately they cut the part about how Laura and I are the bread and butter of the magazine…but that’s okay.  It’s still pretty cool anyways.  Check out the article here!

As you all know, Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez have been dating for a very long time (9 1/2 months and 13 hours and 27 minutes to be exact). Last month Justin spotted Selena canoodling with her Monte Carlo costar Cory Monteith (the dude from Glee). Well didn’t Bieber get into quite the fever..he began questioning Selena’s loyalty to him, he cried, she cried, it was a mess! Anyways, the next morning (sources say) Selena took off. She returned later that evening distraught, intoxicated and sporting new body art. A full arm sleeve tattoo of her true love, Justin Bieber. She has since told sources that it was a gesture to prove her commitment to the baby-faced buck, Bieber.

I know we have fans from all around the world.  Like Jimmy who wrote us last week from Germany.  He told us about how much he loved our horoscopes and how if he hadn’t read ours last month he may about pooped in a bucket in public (how embarrassing!)

Anyways, not all of our adoring fans know that we are actual designers for a living.  SAY WHAT?  Yes that’s right.    Chill Magazine (yes we design that)  is holding a contest right now to vote for your favourite cover.  Easy as pie.  You vote, you win beer.
So vote for your best (preferably one that I’ve designed okay). Click here to go to the contest. If you don’t you will get sick in the next week and you will have a 100% probability of  losing control of your bowels. Just sayin’.

We are designers and we design stuff.  Right Laura?

Right Robin.

The original point of this blog was to promote cool design stuff that we came across.  We then realized that we are really funny and awesome and we wrote about alot more stuff.  Anyways, to get back to our roots (don’t worry we’ll still post other awesome stuff) here is a cool video you should watch about a pretty disgusting but awesome billboard that WB came out with to promote their new movie Contagion.

Also, on a side note here’s a cool contagion contest you can enter.

What's your email? Give it to us. You won't be disappointed.
