10 cool design links that inspire smart, talented design students

Here's the cool stuff that inspires my senior Graphic Design class at Humber. 

(Part One)

1. Debussy Arabesque animated

Almost works as an alternative form of musical notation; a gorgeous visual unspooling of a classic piano piece.

2. The joys of Flat Design

Enough of the phony 3-D and illogical frop-shadows!
via Keith Sample

3. Fully functional brand for sale: just add product

Really, it's all there, waiting for a product. Humber College, for example.
via Jean-Rene Legace

4. Lego Ball clock

More proof that you can build anything with Lego.

5. Cool use for those obsolete pennies

Now that we're really done with them as currency it's time to put them to good use.
via Keith Sample

6. Furniture Built to Look like Giant Versions of Everyday Items

A simple, awesome concept brought to life. You will want to own a few of these, guaranteed.
via Stephanie Lynn Halstead

7. Business cards that look like miniature paperbacks

If books are your business...
via Stacey Hughes

8. Sure, but can the calendar on your phone do THIS?

Gorgeous re-thinks of the traditional wall calendar.

9. A cool compendium of internet creativity

All kinds of cool stuff: audio, video, HTML 5...

10. Motorhead's Ace of Spades played by robots

Listen carefully and you can hear, somewhere, Lemmy, crying with joy.
