Good Fucking Design Advice

A couple of guys start a project intended to provide designers with advice and encouragement. Though it may not sound like anything extraordinary on paper the execution of the project is something to be noted. So if you know anyone in need of some friendly encouragement, just send them over to GFDA. They will take it from there.

3411, Number of Passes Made by Xavi Last Season

I love seeing stats like these, clear evidence of Barcelona’s secret to success. Their soccer philosophy. If you are not sure what I’m referring to go check out these interesting excerpts from an interview with Xavi Hernandez.

I found this stat on the blog of the most hardcore Lionel Messi fans I have seen on line. Shannon is a 19 year old girl South African girl who will marry Messi one day. Given that she claims she will hurt anyone who uses images of her blog without proper disclosure about their origin I want to make sure it is clear that this image came from Messi Love Tumblr.
