At this point, it's no secret we're killing our planet at a frighteningly rapid pace. With plastic and other toxic materials polluting our oceans and infiltrating our air supply, it's more important now than ever for designers and scientists to develop scalable solutions to help reverse the bad habits we've

Last week's WGSN Futures conference, an event founded by the trend research agency, focused on the future of retail, branding and marketing in a time now dubbed the "Retail Apocalypse." With thousands of brick and mortar stores shutting down last year, it's clear traditional retail needs a bit of rebranding
The yearly SEMA (Specialty Equipment Market Association) Show is when custom builders, resto-mod officialdom, gear heads and car nuts of all kinds decent on Las Vegas in a rowdy clash of screeching tires and burning rubber—that isn't a hyperbole. Out front of the show is a low G skid pad
This year's edition of the Tokyo Motor Show was all about the concept vehicle. Placing emphasis on what's to come next in the transportation industry, each exhibiting company flaunted their vision of the future vehicle on dramatic rotating stages under massive spotlights.

As with any design week, the tentpole tradeshows and group exhibitions of London Design Festival can be a mixed bag of brands, manufacturers, collectives, independent designers, and sponsored pavilions. While the disparate exhibitors cater to different albeit overlapping audiences, the jarring juxtapositions can be chaotic if not altogether unfortunate. Thankfully,
Perennially in sync with the autumnal equinox, London Design Festival is duly billed as the biggest design week this side of Milan. And just as the changing leaves offer a flourish of color, so too did many of projects on view in East London—especially large-scale installations by Camille Walala and
To help designers of all levels fine tune their sketching skills, Advanced Design Sketching (in partnership with Autodesk) will be hosting SQ1CON, a two-day conference specifically focused on design sketching.

If you've ever been to the Javits Center in New York City, you know how colossal the convention center is. But have you seen every single inch of the space completely filled with exhibitors? We hadn't before, until we took a trip to NY Now last week. Let's just
As designers, we think and act in ways that vary greatly from scientists, engineers and even other types of designers we typically don't encounter in our day-to-day lives. But what would happen if we bridged the communication gap between students and professionals working at the intersection of design and technology?

Yesterday in Core77's hometown of NYC, Macy's put on their traditional Fourth of July fireworks extravaganza. As always it was held after sundown. But having seen this show countless times, it would be nice to see a daylight fireworks show for a change. That requires different sorts of fireworks, of course. Here's one way that fireworks designers have rendered their creations visible in direct sunlight:
For those of you in the NYC area this summer, the New Museum is holding a fascinating-sounding series of "Digital Self-Defense and Empowerment Workshops" on July 22nd. This afternoon of workshops extends the exhibition's inquiry into the complexities of determining identity and truth to the online sphere. Addressing increasing
All good things should be punctuated by a party. It's only fitting, then, that our 2017 Core77 Design Awards honorees (and those of previous years) received a night dedicated to their incredible efforts and brilliant designs.
