From Big Gulp to Big Salad: 7-11 rebrands to “better capture the millennial and female demographics.”
More> Co.Design

It’s pretty hard to figure whether this will work — are “millenial and female demographics” so hungry for lightly healthier fare that such food hitting the shelves of a 7-11 is going to be a big winner? We can’t complain, though — it’ll be nice to set foot inside one without accruing a thin layer of grease all over your body.

Some design agency spent a lot of time coming up with a rough concept of what iOS 7 probably isn’t going to look like. But let’s just say it looks kind of cool.

The Saul Bass Google Doodle is really good. 

Watch this. When you hear companies talking about using “Flat Design,” what they really mean is “kinda like Saul Bass.”

Microsoft hires designer who presented bold revamp of the company’s brand
Last summer designer Andrew Kim’s vision for “The Next Microsoft” got a lot of traction online — including on The Verge — for its aggressively minimal rebranding of the company across platforms. The next month Microsoft unveiled its actual new logo, but that doesn’t mean it didn’t take note — Kim just announced that he’s been hired by the company, which got in touch after seeing his designs.

That’s right. An unsolicited redesign can get you a job with the company you’re pitching — at least sometimes.

RIP Bill Moggridge: Developer of the Grid Compass, one of the earliest laptops
That’s astronaut John Creighton with Bill’s invention. In 1982, Bill Moggridge developed the industrial design for one of the first computers with the closeable notebook shape that’s common on most portable computers today. Moggridge’s client, GRiD Systems Corporation, was so ahead of the game that they actually owned the patent for the clamshell-style laptop. “In terms of the industrial design of the enclosure, Moggridge was instrumental in proposing that,” said Alex Bochannek of the Computer History Museum. “He came up with that particular form factor.” Being first meant it was extremely expensive, though — at the time of its release in 1982, it cost $8,150 — but it found a home with the U.S. government, particularly NASA. Moggridge’s career didn’t end there, however — he was one of the co-founders of IDEO, an international design company that’s still going strong to this day. Moggridge was 69. (photo via NASA)
