It's Friday, and as usual we’ve collected some links throughout the week that we want to share with you. We also want to break our text-only intro template here with a screenshot of one of the best finds this week, BerkshireHathaways’ logo.

Reading list

Design of the week

  • The air is thin at the crest of Zero F's Given, way up where avalanches start. That's where Berkshire Hathaway dream up things like this. It so good in its badness though. There's no CSS, no CMS or nothing. The logo is styled in line with varying font sizes. This makes for an amazingly fast site.
  • Are.na is a self proclaimed "mindful space where you can structure your ideas and build new forms of knowledge together." in opposition to all the negatives that are becoming ubiquitous online. Co-founder and artist Charles Broskoski reflects in a Q and A here.
  • Onur Çoban, a systems and experience designer at Apple has this very Apple'y portfolio page.
  • TextFX is promises to make you cool with their AI powered tool for rappers, writers and wordsmiths.

Tech of the week

And here are the other tech links (ran out of time for writing)

  • multi.app – Multiplayer collaboration for macOS
  • Vercel templates – AI app templates and examples
  • Grit – Fix Technical Debt Automatically
  • Chatwith – An AI chatbot that does more than just chatting
