I never imagined such a logo will change but the iconic DC comics logo is departing to be replaced with a new logo.

What makes this logo special is that it is very customizable and as you ...

This unique research pavilion located at Germany is surely an amazing achievement in terms of looks. What I find most interesting is that this amazing structure is a research within itself conducted by students and professors of the University of Stuttgart in order to study and construct architecture that is fragile yet their biological placement makes them stand.

I admire art in all its forms, and this particular one seems to be a rising trend. Its using paper in a unique way to create gorgeously detailed works of art. One artist that seems to have perfected this method is Yulia Brodskaya. While most paper crafts are made by cutting and folding the paper or pasting it in certain shapes, the amazing work of Yulia Brodskaya uses ‘quilling’, a technique that uses strips of ...

This is a very unique take on traditional rocking chairs, you know the bulky ones that most associate with elder people, not for this chair though. This chair is called Sway and it more of a modern interpretation of a “rocking chair”, it sure has the benefits of a rocking chair but one thing it does better is that it is made for two. The chair itself is very spacious and there isn’t a correct way ...
