Tokyo Time Lapse

Having spent nearly half of my 20s in Tokyo, it strangely feels like my home away from home. This near-magical time lapse video by Samuel Cockedey captures the vibe of the city perfectly.

Minimalist Business Card Design

This is Google employee, Boris Smus’ attempt to create the most minimal business card design possible.
