Martin Azambuja

Martin Azambuja

I’m really enjoying the work of Martin Azambuja, a designer and illustrator working in Montevideo, Uruguay. Through fluid lines and rich textures he crafts vibrant landscapes pulsating with life and energy.  You can see more of his work on Behance as well as at Mundial, a small studio he recently formed with friend and fellow designer Francisco Cunha.

Sponsor // LG UltraWide Curved IPS Display

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.
