Every Friday we round up some of our favorite finds on the web this week, from illustrations and videos to fonts and photography.

Bridge to the future
Dutch startup MX3D recently announced plans to create the world’s first 3D-printed bridge in Amsterdam. Dutch designer Joris Laarman is set to design the bridge, which will be fully functional and open to pedestrians. MX3D plans to begin printing this fall and hopes to have the bridge completed sometime in 2017. This project marks the first time 3D printing will be used on this large of a scale. Check out the full story here.

Light-up logs
Furniture designer Duncan Meerding integrates light and nature into his work, creating unique and stunning lamps. What makes this artist more impressive than he already is? Meerding is legally blind. Retaining only 5% of his peripheral vision, Meerding has a fascination with light and its dispersion. He combines this fascination with creativity to make a truly beautiful and functional work of art. Check out more of his work and read his full story.



iPhone photography
This year’s iPhone Photography Awards were announced this past Monday and the winning photos are truly breathtaking. Polish street photographer Michal Koralewski won the over-arching Photographer of the Year category with the photo below.
