real magick in theory and practise

with 2 comments

Believed to be the most geometrically complex and aesthetically beautiful structure in mathematics, the 4_21 polytope is the algebraic form at the centre of a universal theory of everything. Originally described in the late 19th century, 4_21 models all interactions and transformations between known and postulated sub-atomic particles. It is the 21st century equivalent of the proto-scientific art of alchemy – where the transmutation of elements was the most elusive mystery of the universe. The theory is an attempt to reconcile one of the fundamental unsolved problems in physics: unify quantum physics and gravitation in hopes of ultimately explaining the fabric of the universe.

the future of starbucks

leave a comment »

Starbucks just announced a rebranding exercise in progress here. A great evolution in my view, going the way of the Nike tick without the Nike logotype, consumers are now familiar enough with the mermaid in a circle to not have the Starbucks logotype around it. The resulting mark feels fresh and modern, yet, from the chronology of the logo, did not evolve that much away from its initial one 40 years ago.
