  • Designs We Are Grateful For

    Admit it - It can be easy to get caught up in the designs that "wow" us and overlook those that may be less flashy, but have a more meaningful impact on the world. With Thanksgiving just a few days away, we at Coroflot pause to express gratitude for all the designs and innovations that do more than just impress the commercial masses. Here is a hand-picked collection of projects from Coroflot designers for whose socially and environmentally mindful work we are truly grateful.

  • Introducing Designing Here/Now: The Definitive Design Book Everyone Needs

    Thanks to the Internet, design and its practitioners are more accessible than ever. Unfortunately, however, many of these online design resources lack the substance and detail we all crave. Those who truly appreciate design want to understand more than just the materials used or the technique applied. It's about understanding where a designer is coming from, what language they speak through their work and what they intended their work to convey. Thankfully, Core77 just published a book that offers the valuable insight and depth so many design resources lack. It's called Designing Here/Now, and whether you are a practicing designer, someone who hires design talent, or just someone who loves great design, this book will prove indispensable.
