Top 100 Design Ideas in April

From Whimsical Airline Identities to Pet-Friendly Apartments

— April 28, 2019 — Art & Design
These April 2019 design ideas range from architectural marvels to empowering technology accessories, documenting the vast possibilities for this exciting industry.

As always, design influences numerous industries, including technology. This month saw multiple aesthetically pleasing innovations in that field, like the NASA-powered video stream of the moon, which was on display in New York City. Meanwhile, a Toronto-based company called Patio Interactive leverages design and technology to draw new clients in, by offering immersive activations for people to participate in.

On a more aesthetics-focused note, brands like Virgin Atlantic are incorporating design to refresh its image. Recently, the airline tapped agency Two Times to create a whimsical identity that promoted some of the new services the airline had to offer.
