It’s clear that the internet is an invaluable tool in modern society, and it’s chock full of interesting, useful, items, all just a click away. Last weeks props came at you with a collection of useful tools from around the web. That being said, today's props go out to some of the most useless websites we could find. Those that dare to embrace the freedom of the internet to do nothing of particular use. We’ll open with a throwback to an internet sensation circa 2006, Loituma Girl. Also known as the leek spinner, this clip is a prime example of some of Read More >>

For example, you could search for a flight from Boston to Northern Europe for about a month, and you’ll be given a variety of destinations, dates, Read More >>
Props broke its stride last week, but we’re stepping back up to the plate with a plethora of props worthy findings. This weeks props celebrate patterns! Patterns have garnered human attention for some time; for their ability to add intrigue, organize, or even visually obscure objects. First up is a project by Claudio Guglieri and Tim Holman. http://thepatternlibrary.com is a library of gorgeous, repeatable, patterns, free to download, use, and share. The project is open for submissions as well so hopefully, given time, it will become an extensive resource. Second up this week are some artists using pattern extensively in their Read More >>
Friday Props 85- Scale Today’s Friday! But what does Friday mean, aside from Friday Props? Friday is a day in a week, in a month, in a year, in a decade, etc. But Friday only has meaning if it has context. Todays Props go out to those who have wondered about, and visualized various scales.

Edgeworks Creative does not work with Wordpress because Read More >>
