While a large number of photos aimed at documenting the progressing fragmentation of markets and the splitting of the web with pixelated imagery, quite the contrary happened.
Every trend is followed by an equally powerful counter trend.
Neither design nor perception pixelated and fell apart in its bits and atoms.
The quality of on screen images, happened to supersede that of glossy print magazines we had all grown familiar with. On screen display resolution superseded print results. Along came theme or template based design and the acceptance of web standards such as proven and tried layouts and functions. In turn it reached the level of best practices in print design.
If there is a new aesthetic, then one that came along with the event of retina displays for watches, cell phones, tablet PCs or ever larger tv and desktop monitors.
What the boys from twenty one pilots may also stressed out by, is the ever more demanding claim as a result of ever increasing expectations set in quality.

The new aesthetic in music comes close to what is experienced as supernormal. Tt’s something we know and trust that we only need be reminded of and surprised by. The Hamilton Cast’s „Say no to this” demonstrates this nicely and should you not know the Hamilton Cast, take „Sorry” by Justin Bieber.

Michaela Melián – Electric Ladyland Should you be in Munich you may want to spend some time at the prestigious Lenbachhaus. It’s Kunstbau is hosting a solo exhibition honoring the works by Michaela Melián. Karmelina Kulpa offers a bit of explanation on why the exhibit is worth your time.
Michaela Melián knows her numbers. On a pre-set schedule she goes to where visitors and fans congregate . You can place your bets on her nomination for any top award in the European art industry.
I’ve always enjoyed her bright smile and rose cheeks. She sticks to wearing skirts.
With remarkable persistence, Melián has layed out how to organically grow a brand and consistently add new meaning to it through out her life.
Munich sets digital record Germany owes its reputation to dead thinkers, dead poets, dead inventors and dead scientists.
Europe and its historic past and extensive history.
Since the rise of new technology and the departure into the 21. century, Germany has no role in this play. It lives off of the myth its dead left behind, and enjoys – more than ever – a mighty fine reputation around the globe.

2002 and 2006
Blogging by US teens halved between 2006 and 2010 and declined among millennials, according to PewResearch.
Rise of social networks such as Facebook and microblogging platforms Tumblr and Twitter.
On 16 February 2011, there were over 156 million public blogs in existence. On 20 February 2014, there were around 172 million Tumblr (2016: 291.7 Mio) and 75.8 million WordPress (2016: 76.5 Mio.) blogs in existence worldwide.
So, bloggers should be excited, not downhearted. Roughly 15 years after the beginnings of the format, we have arrived at the essence of the blog – a highly trafficked, commercially appealing platform whose best years are ahead of it.

The inside story by Alex Druies of how GM (yes, GM!) beat Elon Musk in the race to build a true electric car for the masses.
From abroad in my Munich neighbourhood of Nymphenburg, I had several sightings of Tesla’s Model S and have compared Chevy cars park among the European regulars. By which the thought struck me that the Chevy makes for a more potential appearance than the local regulars. When I see see a Tesla drive by, I get a similar sensation as when I see one of the Maseratis in my neighbourhood.Read in full by Alex Druies
It’s been a few hours that Silver Linings Playbook (2012) caught me by surprise. I’m okay now. What I like doing most is not do anything and watch tv while longing for the outdoors. A TV Guide is not required much like navigation is a nuisance common with websites. I get pulled in and guided by the story or I do something else.
I had no clue what I was watching and did’t recognise the actors until it dawned on me that the bad woman was the girl from the Hunger Games, Jennifer Lawrence, who I have a crush on the minute I get to see her.
I like it or I don’t. With actors, Mrs. Hammerstein offered a good enough qualification, which can be applied to perhaps any design discipline:
You know your are watching an actress or actor and are by no means disturbed by knowing who they are.
Bradley Cooper is such an actor and so is Jennifer Lawrence and some sharp work from a talented cast give balance to the fabric and insights you gain from watching Silver Linings.
Nor could Robert De Niro ruin it for me, even though I knew it’s Robert De Niro. Au contraire.
Now I want to live in a country where I can go running wearing a garbage bag.
