Attention all Apple users!

To be short: if you haven’t already done so, update your iOS devices *immediately*. Don’t use a Mac for banking on the public Internet and anything sensitive until Apple releases a security update for OS X.

Technical details are available here:

And here are some practical tips if you use a Mac in your daily work.

  • Definitely don’t use public Wi-Fi networks
  • Use Chrome or Firefox (they have their own SSL implementation) instead of Safari
  • Don’t use apps that may transmit authentication tokens (passwords) over SSL

Specifically, don’t use Apple’s with your domain account. It seems that Outlook use Apple’s SSL implementation as well, and since Kerberos authentication currently has problems with our mail servers, it may ask you to send passwords over SSL instead. Best way may be to read your e-mail on another device or use Outlook Web Access with Chrome or Firefox.


Tuulikello assisted living building project.

Hot Snow Design studio recently created exterior 3D renderings for Arkkitehtitoimisto Jääskeläinen, the Tuulikello assisted living building  which is to be situated in Seinäjoki, Finland. Three images have been created in total and these include the various views representing the facilities. These visualisations have been done in realistic manner, even some wear and tear effects were applied to the textures to give some additional touch of reality.

Retrospective: Architectural sketches

Architectural drafts of the bridge service station project (Not realised). This station project was commissioned to Hot Snow Design in 2009 and our Creative Director Igor Polyakov had drawn it. Being mainly as an artist representation of the architecture project these drawings used as a base for communication on early seeding stage of the project.

This kind of artwork is extremely effective when no detailed project and technical drawings exists yet, but there is a need for a visuals for communication with the project’s stakeholders.

Media: fineliner markers, pencils, watercolor.
