  • LG 34UM95: World’s First 34-inch Display for Creative Professionals

    Wait. You say, the LG 34UM95 is actually not the world’s first 34-inch display? This is true. But it definitely is the world’s first 34-inch display for real creative professionals. Let me explain. It’s not only the size that matters here, it’s the resolution that’s the real game changer. The LG 34UM95 sports a mighty QHD resolution of 3,440 by 1,440 pixels. With a resolution like that, creative professionals might feel tempted to waive their two monitor configurations and go back to working without neck pain. Especially creative workers using Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign or those whose daily bread is the editing of audio and video, are certain to profit from the much larger width.

  • Exclusive Freebie on Noupe: 50 Funny Icons Out of The Ordinary

    Oops, that shouldn’t have happened. Simply hold your breath for a minute and it will have faded. Yes, we find this hilarious.

So we contacted Freepik, our friends from Spain, and asked them if they’d be interested in creating a set, inspired by Nasty Icons, but more on the funny side. They agreed immediately and today, we are proud to be able to bring the 50 symbols to you. All of the icons are free to use for any type of project, but you can only get them here…

Thanks to the SVG formats, which is widely supported by modern browsers, we are able to embed vector-based graphics into our web projects without the need for a plug-in.

  • Beyond Light X-Rayography

    You know that we love art here at Noupe headquarters. And while we are dedicated to digital artists mostly, once and again we stumble upon other art forms impossible to ignore. The x-rayography by Albert Koetsier from the Netherlands is one such singularity and definitely worth more than a quick superficial look. Albert creates photos using traditional x-ray technology and then colours the pictures manually. His project Beyond Light cooperates with Photowall to bring x-rayography as wall murals or on canvas into your own four walls.
