LG 34uc97 Curved Ultrawide display

 

Riding on the heels of the much loved 34UM95 QHD monitor, LG has just released the 34UC97, the world’s first 21:9 UltraWide curved display. Similar to the UM95 the 34UC97 features ample screen real estate and IPS technology which allows for sharp imagery at any viewing angle. This will prove to be useful to multi-taskers looking to break free from the distractions of a two monitor set-up in favor of a more unified viewing experience. Designers will be especially interested in its rendering capabilities. With coverage of over 99% of the sRGB spectrum, the 34UC97 serves up a highly accurate color profile consistent with the actual printed output. In addition, it offers multiple Thunderbolt2 ports, so you can easily daisy-chain all your Mac-compatible devices. Check out the video below to learn more about this amazing monitor.

Justin Pervorse Interview

Justin Pervose Interview on grainedit.com

Continuing our series of process related interviews, we chat with illustrator and designer Justin Pervorse. A Bay Area transplant via Atlanta, Justin has been relentlessly perfecting his craft over the last decade.

I first caught wind of Justin’s talents during his tenure at Mailchimp, where he injected his infectious personality into a series of slick illustrations and campaigns for the email giant. He has since moved on to Dropbox’s internal design department, a position that has allowed him to further expand his creative capabilities. Through the support of his peers, Justin and his team have created a series of self-initiated projects that explore and uplift the spirit of the brand. In today’s interview we highlight one of these projects, delve into his workflow and discuss his earliest days as a designer.
