Étude Op. 2

Étude Op. 2 collection of lush textures by Sougwen Chung.

_______

Love this Untitled piece.

BE: Bag

BE: Buy Right. Eat Right. Shopping Bag by Nicole Pivirotto.

For this project students were asked to create a product that would help them stick to our New Years Resolution. Her resolution was (and still is!) to eat healthier, so she designed a grocery bag with different compartments for each food group, in order to encourage purchasing healthier foods at the grocery store.

Genial! Want one! You?

Collator Exhibit

Superb grad design project titled Collator Exhibit by Vince Lo. Love the work – the approach – the presentation. Everything. Keep your eyes peeled on him. Promising career ahead.

_______

To showcase the development of Collator, he created a Process/Specimen book. And a typeface.

Teehan+Lax lab

Setting up a lab in your agency by Jon Lax

Jon Lax, the co-founder of Teehan+Lax, discusses why the agency built a dedicated labs group. While to the outside it may seem like we have just hopped on the bandwagon, the truth is we spent a considerable amount of time designing and thinking about this group, its purpose, its operations and its mandate.

What we have learned after one year:

a) Resourcing still an issue

b) PR is a double edged sword

c) Create a hacker culture

Cluster approach

Love the One-Shelves concept by Studio Juju.

A set of small boxes that can be nested together to take up the least amount of space and expanded without tools to form a big shelf. Stack and arrange to fit different spaces.

_______

Along the same cluster approach, check the Rabbit tables.

Field Study

Making me smile from ear to ear. Discover the fantastic illustration and collage work of Kennan Cummings posted on his Field Study blog.

Don’t miss the series of black dot characters he created.

_______

Featured animations are delicious.

Chalk power

Dana Tanamachi is a graphic designer and custom chalk letterer living in Brooklyn, New York. Her work has circulated all over the Internet. Her medium being so ephemeral – the only thing that captures it permanently are photographs.

Check out some of the time-lapse projects. Impressive.

Hand delivered

Someone’s gotta a brand new bag. Terrific packaging project: Hand delivered by Gavin Martin Colournet imagineered by Magpie Studio.

Carl Wiens

Carl Wiens is a consumate illustrator. Stating that he works with a lot of really amazing and interesting people, on projects ranging from magazines and books to character development for animation.

Love the retro artifcats and strong characters and objects using lines very sparingly.

Jaw dropping

Fantastic new portfolio website for Kelli Anderson who is an artist/designer and tinkerer always experimenting with new means of making images and experiences. From interactive paper to layered, experimental websites, everything begins and ends here in her studio which houses a 1919 letterpress and an assortment of other benevolent contraptions.

She also teaches art history at Pratt every summer.
