News | Nov 2011

Playtype™

Playtype™ is a foundry font shop created by brand and design agency e-Types, as a showcase of more than 20 years of type design – from commissioned works to fonts created out of passion.

Digging this very cool website w/ left – right navigational panels. The layout is funky and well behaved as to placement of visuals showcasing some of the fonts.

_______

Don’t forget to visit their store either IRL or online for more typogratifying products.

Heroes Design

Heroes Design is the portfolio of Piotr Buczkowski based in Poznań, Poland, who provides clients with solid and eye-catchy graphic design. Love the Podaj dalej x-mass (post) cards series for The Pay it Forward Foundation – a public organization that helps disabled children. Pro bono project.

Exquisite 3d shapes and composition.

Alt Hiroshi

Alt Hiroshi typeface by Andreas Leonidou.

‘Little Printer’

Little Printer‘ is all over the Internet this am.

Just scrolled the FastCo article – more pix available than on original website which is – imo – very unfortunate since I always like to go to the ‘source’- why not capitalize on branding the device publicly instead of circulating an obscure (kinda) web page.

Never never p.r. your material and not post on your own website.

_______

Webpage has changed since first visiting early this am.

________

Not withstanding above – this is a cute (and promising) device.

BERG \

BERG \ is an independent UK based ideas studio. They design seamlessly across a wide range of media such as print, screen and environment. They are known to push boundaries. As proof a stellar portfolio.

Love the logo using the backslash to complete the ‘R’ letter.

_______

Sliding door section shows a preview of their recent work – click on – and takes you to the case study.

Image Festival

Image Festival is a yearly event focussing on all aspects of imagery and the image industry and collaborates with media institutes, educational centers, professional and business associations and with creative and cultural networks.

Presents a vivid cross-section of the international image scene. There is no other event in the world devoted to such diverse aspects of the image.

Tutti-fruti pastel website. Digging it!

30% off /ABA

A Book Apart (brief books for people who make websites) has got an holiday special: 30% off when you buy the whole collection.

Photek /EP

Gotta love the EP covers for Photek designed by Inventory Studio. Each have discrete or not so – 3d protuding geometrical shapes cloned from the original picture in background. Way to go for a super creative solution to a fraction of costs.

Clever. Fabulous.

Kulör *up

Kulör is a small London-based web design and development agency which collaboratively produces a wide variety of client websites and applications alongside creating and managing a series of internal publishing projects.. and they have new website.

Sliding door like interface – you see a sliver of their projects. Pick one and a text box appears on the left – expanding a bit the visual but still not revealing all.

Don’t know if having to folow URL is a better strategy than showing screen captures. What do you think?

_______

Poly™ by Innoiz

Innoiz via Jean-Christophe Naour just launch an application called Poly™ (for ipad). This project is inspired by the Triangulation invented by the mathematician Boris Delaunay in 1934.

While the process behind is complicated, the result reduce an image to its essentials, creating the illusions of triangles, prisms and pyramids.

See how it works.

_______

Draw with points and turn your pictures into geometric array of colours w/ Poly™.

Design Studio

Quality projects by Design Studio. It’s a fast-moving industry they work in and with a growing number of corporate projects and boutique commissions, they need even more dexterous hands on deck…

If you’re interested – they are recruiting!

_______

Excellent self-promo piece. View their showreel.

Matt Keers

Geometric shapes never looked so good. Check out cup and posters by Matt Keers. He has a terrific portfolio that range from illustration to art direction. Much talent.

_______

Posters archive favorites.

Beauty Benefits

Beauty Benefits by Dr Daniel Hamermesh

Beauty may seem like enough of a reward in and of itself , but a wealth of research reveals it comes with extra perks: prettier people earn more money, find higher-earning and hotter spouses – even get better mortgages deals – and it may be because they develop higher self-esteem early on in life.

Hit the link above to view the whole infographic image.

________

How much more supercifial can it get? Seems that the hollywodean model of beautiful (and in this case – includes smarts) has reached new heights of deceptions. Living in society that nurturs such bias and that favor first (physical) impression over first smart impression – is depressing.

Granted when I started on the Internet – I was happy to hide my gender (and looks) behind a monitor to produce / publish work that appealed firstly to intellect.

Granted it was a powerful shelter as I pushed to explore, theorize and consume information – never giving a thought (till this day) to who is behind my quest to discover talent.

But this research – is a throw back.

Guy Hulse

Guy Hulse is a graphic designer with a deep felt passion for design for print, brand identity and letterpress typography. Moodstream concept postcard box-set, designed for Getty Images as a giveaway, is a good example.

Scroll down to see more of his work.

Heydays redux

Heydays is a design studio that creates strong visual concepts which trigger curiosity, create enthusiasm and show ambition. They listen, research and challenge. They remove noise to add value.

They just launched their new website – from Oslo with love.

Still going strong creativaly and projects output.

Foundry Co

Foundry Co is a creative branding agency and the collaborative effort of Paul Wilkes and Scott Hill. Rooted in the art of creating beautiful things and a strong senses of style in both modern and vintage aspects, applying a fresh approach to projects across the globe.

Wonder how they have acquired such a successful sense of what retro-modern is about.

Arkitypo /3

Back in August, the Johnson Banks started Arkitypo, an unusual project where they are creating an alphabet of three dimensional letters which came about during conversations with a current client, Ravensbourne, who have some absolutely state-of-the-art 3d prototyping machinery and skills.

Showing examples and work in progress – at the end they are hoping to produce a definitive set of photographs, posters (perhaps with luck an exhibition of the actual objects).

A-a-a-mazing!

Plastic Fantasy

TOMAAS .. is a New York based fashion and beauty photographer who has staged a breath taking series titled: Plastic Fantasy. Using plastic wrap, straws, forks, transparent bulbs even garbage bags, what was created is simply, astounding.

Creativity yields wonders.

Du.st Uk

Established in 2000, based in the industrial city of Sheffield Uk, dust is a commercial graphic arts and design studio producing work across media and application.

Gotta love their stringed together boxy portfolio presentation. Instant impression? Done!

Rosie Lee

Rosie Lee is a hybrid creative agency hailing from London, UK. With on and offline expertise in branding, advertising and retail design, they bring to life the innovative ideas brands need in today’s cluttered marketing space.

The website is exquisitely well-crafted with loads but yet not overwhelming projects and information about these. All sections invites user to investigate more with a generous amount of visuals, makes you appreciate their expertise.

Mattia Castiglioni

Mattia Castiglioni is an Italian graphic designer based in Milian. Check out the identity system project he did for Cameraoff photography studio.

Love the references to lens parts of a camera used to create the logo. The choice of black & white is elegant and infers the largely perceived notion that black & white photography is the most difficult to achieve thus granting a high level of added value to client.

This Spot /cc

Cuban Council conceived an app that would allow them to make use of most tools/technologies/services that a client would likely ask of them.

_______

This Spot is part utility (weather app), part random reward, part (anonymous) geo-location and part social sharing. Fun to look at, somewhat purposeful in use and in a very generic way, reflects crowd-sourcing for regional sentiments.

_______

Supra nice interface – smooth functionalities. Random photographs supplied. Wonder where they are from though.. and why the black ’round’ is now a square?

Guess who’s freezing at 36 degrees?

Purposive Drift

Purposive Drift: Making It Up As We Go Along by Richard Oliver

It is a common theory that successful people live their lives like a project plan, so we struggle to shape our lives along a pre-determined path. Instead, Oliver asserts that that the majority of people, many of them very successful, make it up as they go along.

_______

In the brave new world of bureaucratic rationality the answers "I don’t know" or "I don’t know yet" are perceived as signs of incompetence or irresponsibility.

No boundaries

Jeff Rogers knows no boundaries nor media limitations. His work ranges from typography, graphic design, illustration, editorial design, book covers, posters, branding.. You name it – his vivid imagination, sense of play (when not downright spoofy) has probably embraced it all.

Like the slim white bordered content area offsets the projects preventing a chromatic clash w/ landscape photography. The right black tabs nav complements it all.

COMMON.is

Featuring the ten entrepreneurs behind the best up-and-coming technology startups for collaborative consumption, COMMON Pitch NYC will highlight the smartest and most efficient ways to utilize social technologies to borrow, share or trade the things we all use.

Future of interaction

A brief rant on the future of interaction design by Bret Victor

As it happens, designing future interfaces for the future used to be my line of work. I had the opportunity to design with real working prototypes, not green screens and After Effects, so there certainly are some interactions in the video which I’m a little skeptical of, given that I’ve actually tried them and the animators presumably haven’t.

_______

But that’s not my problem with the video Productivity Future Vision (2011).

_______

I’m going to talk about that neglected third factor, human capabilities. What people can do. Because if a tool isn’t designed to be used by a person, it can’t be a very good tool, right?

Prolific 000MGz

Now much info available about who is behind – but loads of logos and brand marks by 000MGz. Prolific output.

M(F&)T

As shown in their logo, MacFadden & Thorpe dig bright contrasting colors and their work is essentially that. Bright – as in smart; contrasting – as in their assignments; colourful as in their typographic penchant.

_______

Loooove this. M&T Yearbook #1. A small book documenting their first year in business through the projects they worked on and the people and adventures they brought us.

_______

Chronicle Books Branding. Elements from annual graphic identity systems that played off the theme of seeing differently.

RePrint c/

RePrint is a downloadable calendar that you can print onto the reverse of your misprints to get a second use out of them. Such a simple useful idea to reverse waste.

Grayden Poper

Gotta love how Grayden Poper introduces himself with four different action figures: These are some of the things I wanted to be when I grew up, but instead, I ended up as an Interactive Designer.

Niiiice side panel navigation. Good idea since his website holds on a one-pager scroll.

Last Clock

Last Clock is engineered and designed by Newmedialogy as a visual memory of the last 60 seconds, the last 60 mintues and the last 12 hours in an never-ending process which was 10 years in the making. It is a personal piece of media art that keeps you in factual time, human time and remote time.

_______

Last Clock App for everyday context.

Twitter limit?

Twitter now has set an ‘hour’ limit usage?!?! Careful – people I am following appeared as a 404 page as in image below.. so almost deleted them from my list..

Wonder if Robert Scoble, Jason Santa Maria, Ashton Kushtner other big following accounts are under the same limitation?

You experienced this?

Matthieu Belin

Qiu Hao F/W 2011 Serpens collection captured by Matthieu Belin. Conceptually way-up there above any folds. The garments are none you can wear easily even to a red carpet event but the model conveys a futuristic glimpse into what fashion can be.

Superb photography!

DeKloutifying

DeKloutifying by John Scalzi

Wherein lies a problem: Who made Klout the arbiter of online influence, aside from Klout itself?

This is sad, and possibly evil. It’s especially sad and possibly evil because as far as I can see, Klout’s business model is to some greater or lesser extent predicated on exploiting that status anxiety.

The Design Entrepreneur by Steven Heller, Lita Talarico

Amusement guaranteed.

Bye-bye Flash

Jobs Was Right: Adobe Abandons Mobile Flash, Backs HTML5 by Mike Isaac

In an abrupt about-face in its mobile software strategy, Adobe will soon cease developing its Flash Player plug-in for mobile browsers.

“HTML5 is now universally supported on major mobile devices, in some cases exclusively,” Adobe VP Danny Winokur said in a clear reference to Apple’s rejection of Flash support on its dominant iOS devices: the iPad, iPhone and iPod touch.

“This makes HTML5 the best solution for creating and deploying content in the browser across mobile platforms.

And with that, Adobe signaled the end of the Flash era on at least the mobile web, as Steve Jobs predicted.

Twitter Stories?

Don’t know how long they will maintain this but Twitter Stories are inspiring. Perhaps a little pat on the back as to the power of 140 characters – but yet – not only the website is beautiful, the stories are good too.

Their illustrations have been awared with the most prestigious international awards, like Cannes Lions, Clio, Eurobest, Graphis, Sol, CdeC, Laus, among others…

Brosmind talks are fresh, freak and funny shows. Powerpoint sucks! and Keynote is so cool, clean and mac style, maybe perfect if you are a trendy designer, fun of iphone lovers, but not for Brosmind!

Yepp they got their very own lecture app designed by Flan*.

Netbabyworld

Found this long time running website – who remembers Netbabyworld? It was one of the true ‘pixel’ goodness spot.

Live Visualization

Live Visualization by LIA software art

The Austrian artist Lia – one of the early pioneers of Software and Net Art – has been creating digital art, installations and sound works since 1995. Her Internet works combine various traditions of drawing and painting with the aesthetic of digital images and algorithms.

They are characterized by a minimalist quality, and by an affinity with conceptual art.

If you’re interested – check-out Lia’s videos.

_______

For each of the 33 Songs a separate visual piece was prepared depending on the mood of the music as well as on the content of the texts. The software tool is programmed in a such a way that while the visuals react directly to the sound input, which can be controlled through an audio mixing table, various parameters of the generation of the image can also be controlled via the keyboard.

The software tool was programmed using the open source software OpenFrameworks.

Antechamber

Antechamber (A Free Typeface) by Alex Varanese

Architecture and type design have a lot in common. Both demand technical precision and creative expression in equal measures, both elevate the interplay between negative and positive space to a level beyond that of most art forms, and both face the unenviable expectation of conveying beauty while remaining inconspicuous.

_______

Don’t miss the video. Sound track reminds of early Mario Bros.
