In the Fave Finds series, we feature some of the things that’re on our list of favorites. From creative reads to innovative trinkets, we’re adding this to what piques our interest in design.
Uppercase is a magazine especially for the curious and creative. The 15th issue dives right into the core of things to keep the inquisitive and inspired pining for those eclectic cravings.
Whether you go for spontaneity in brewing those creative juices, or you’re the type to go for a more methodical process, you’re bound to find inspiration from the infinite possibilities the wonders of science has up its sleeve.
It doesn’t take an Einstein to understand just how vast the field of science is with its incredible discoveries and awe-inspiring mysteries. Curious? Uppercase Magazine’s 15th issue investigates the creative side of science, and squeezes in a ton within the pages of this magazine.
Inside, you’ll see the project that had 26 typographers, designers, and illustrators participating to make beautiful bitmaps. Here’s a little teaser, along with the story behind the art from the artists themselves, to whet your appetite: http://uppercasemagazine.com/beautifulbitmaps

The “original pixels” are also given the spotlight. In the flourishing age of digital technology, we also take a look back on how handmade needlework was an intricate art that was adorned on clothing, linen, household decor, and so much more. This creative pioneer to the pixel as the starting point to any good design can also be related to how atoms, the smallest unit of matter, can be assembled to be expressed in a million different ways.
Even in the most random bits and bobs, the sky’s the limit in bringing in great design. Think: molecular orbs as inspiration to transforming beads as jewelry art, Independent store Paxton Gate that’s one part science lab and one part exotic plant collection, science books with detailed illustrations of anatomical diagrams and infographic materials, and more.
Read up on the interview with James Gordon Irving, the artist behind the pocket-sized Golden Nature Guides books. You’ll also meet other artists whose works were based on the geometry in nature and other scientific wonders.
If those aren’t enough, we’ve got a definite clincher here: you’ll finally find out if you’re a mad scientist or a grand master. Take the test, and get lost in the pages of the 15th issue of Uppercase Magazine.
