News July 23, 2013

Hello creatives! It’s been awhile since we did our last roundup of news and interesting creative stories online. This week we will take a look at a dating experiment by two designers, a surprising announcement about the “Man of Steel” sequel and an exhibition dedicated to a great African leader.


40 Days of Dating

Designers and good friends Jessica Walsh and Timothy Goodman both with opposite relationship problems found themselves single at the same time. As an experiment, they dated for forty days.


To explore and hopefully overcome their fears, differences and inadequacies, Jessica and Tim  will go through the joy, frustrations, commitment, time and other motions of a relationship for the next 40 days.

Along with the experience is the creative showcase in typography, motion graphics and web development from their creative friends. Follow the daily updates here.
