A Nerd’s Menagerie: 7 Things to Make You Wonder

Another week begins, below are 7 things which will hopefully brighten your week! ❤

Wonder at the Universe
Via The Guardian‘s Made Simple series, and by the UK studio Scriberia; a great animation showing Stephen Hawking’s big ideas!

Wonder at the Rare Occurrences
A sleeping fox, though adorable, doesn’t seem like a typical viral event. A sleeping fox sleeping on a two-story window sill in Notting Hill London, well, that’s a rare thing! This little guy was making the rounds on the internet all weekend. Wonder what his story is. 😉

I am a designer, therefore a typography nerd, check out this video via Quartz showcasing Alexander Tochilovsky, an adjunct professor of design & typography decoding the secret language in street signs and fonts! It’s fantastic!

Wonder at the Power of the Elements
Via LA photographer Stuart Palley; his long exposure photographs in his series Terra Flamma of the California wildfires are haunting. See more here.
