Undervalued Inventor Nikola Tesla’s 157th Birthday

Nikola Tesla

Nikola Tesla, unlike contemporaneous inventor Thomas Edison, was unconcerned with fame and financial gain. Edison co-opted many of his inventions.

An innovators’ group in Nebraska has painted a mural of Nikola Tesla’s life and work on their building:

This mural, dedicated to the life of Nikola Tesla, is freshly painted on the outside of our office building. Turbine Flats in Lincoln, Nebraska is a home to many small businesses and innovators so it’s fitting that Tesla adorns the entire western wall of the building. Happy Birthday Nikola Tesla!

Cover designs for books that don’t exist (but should)

As part of his Masters of Branding study at the School of Visual Arts, Tyler Adam Smith is creating 100 covers for books that should be written, from goofy snarks at popular authors to imagined sequels to beloved books.

Designer Debbie Millman, who chairs the branding department, charged each student in the program to come up with a project that demands a daily contribution over 100 days. That’s how Smith came up with 100 Books That Should Be Written. Some of his imaginary book covers are funny; others are glorious pieces of wishful thinking, and some of them would be must-reads if they ever came into existence. There are 83 entries so far.
