Films like “Dumbo,” “The Aristocats,” “Lady and the Tramp” and “Jungle Book,” some of which were made nearly 80 years ago, offer a disclaimer saying,” “This program is presented as originally created. It may contain outdated cultural depictions.” Since its initial release in 1941, “Dumbo” has been criticized for including a version of vocal blackface, while “The Aristocats” and “Peter Pan” have been the subject of scrutiny for racist depictions of characters.

Adobe Muse

In the era of web host templates and UX design software, we come closer to the demise of Adobe Muse. Final update in 2018, to be fully discontinued in 2020. It was fun.

Adobe Muse is a type of website builder software that enables you to design your website rather than develop it. It enables users to create gorgeous, responsive websites without ever having to touch a line of code.

Perhaps the single most important consideration for anyone approaching a new type of software is how easy it is to learn. This is where Adobe Muse has a clear advantage over most of the web development software solutions out there.

Because it doesn’t require any code knowledge, you can jump in and start creating a website right away. The software itself has an intuitive interface – especially if you have previous experience using professional design programs such as Affinity Designer, CorelDRAW, and other Adobe apps of course.

Adobe Muse is a great fit for a wide variety of users. It’s a useful tool in the toolbox of advanced web developers that want to quickly assemble a functional website, small businesses that want to expand on their web presence, and individuals looking to create a portfolio or online resume.

Print designers, artists, and other visual professionals can use Adobe Muse to expand their services into the world of online media. Print designers in particular might look to transition into website design so that they can offer clients a more complete range of services. This will be an easy transition for print designers familiar with InDesign (a print app).

3D Printers

We are definitely going to need 3D Printers for whenever we settle on Mars. You can print a tool/machine/kit and later recycle/repurpose it into something else! Saves waste, delivery time, and money involved in the conquest of space. 

UK-based design firm Pentagram creates “21st-century identity” for Yahoo!

 

“Yahoo is one of the digital world’s iconic brands and its original logo perfectly captured the spirit of the early days of the internet,” said Pentagram’s Michael Bierut.

 

“We were determined to reflect the brand’s idiosyncratic roots, which is why we retained and strengthened the Yahoo exclamation mark,” he told Dezeen.

 

The capital letters of the logo’s previous iterations have been abandoned in favour of lower case letters.

 

The brand’s exclamation mark is italicised to give emphasis and is alined at 22.5 degrees to match the angle of the Y.

 

“The exclamation mark’s exaggerated italic treatment helps bracket the wordmark with two strong diagonals, and calls back to the Looney Toons-style charm of the original 90s mark,” explained Bierut.
