/ What's new in the design digital culture

Aquatilis project

I have a deep appetite for sciences such as astrophysics + astronomy + geographic expeditions especially dedicated to discovering the deep seas.

________

The Aquatilis project website is extraordinary on many levels. Please donate if you can.

________

First the scope – 3 years around the seas on a high-tech sailboat.

Secondly the leader is no other than underwater photography genius – Alexander Semenov.

_______

Thirdly – branding – font – interactive design is the handicraft of extra talented Tobias van Schneider.

High glitching

Adam Ferriss experiments with all sorts of tools in making his algorithmic art, from Processing and other creative coding frameworks to real-time shaders and post-processing video effects.

_______

Sometimes he distorts photographs he finds, running them through a gauntlet of digital mutations until they’re something entirely new.

_______

Be ready to be blown away. Careful extreme animated visual permutations. Want to give it a try? Download his open-source files.

Don’t miss his about page for more links to artworks.

The Heads of State?

The Heads of State. We Make Stuff. For You. For Your Brand. For Ourselves. And brand themselves – well, they do.

Reassuring to their clients? Bet it is.

_______

LOVE the ‘Graphic Diplomacy established in 2002′ on their business card.

_______

World class brands and lo-fi bands, entrepreneurs and raconteurs, cultural institutions and craftsmen alike work with us because of our inventive thinking, our classic design sense, our abundance of facial hair, and our honest approach to the business of image making.

_______

Read: The Great Discontent interview.

_______

In their online store (currently in maintenance) they offers print which proceeds go to certain organizations.

_______

THOS have a superb website. As a user – just as I prefer them. Large opening visual with knick-knacks staging infused with metaphors referring to their agency description.

3 hands – (3 heads) are better than one and their gorgeous logo (love it).

Long live PRPL

PRPL short for Purple Rock Scissors (which imv is enigmatic enough) has such a great culture enunciation that it should become a universal manifesto of sort for all of us creatives.

We’re driven by the why.

_______

This isn’t window dressing, it’s our way of life. It’s not our work life, it’s our life’s work.

Heads up, they tend to be contagious (I agree):

Authenticity. To be genuine, be vulnerable.

Simplicity. Distill to the meaningful and balanced.

Drive. Do what you love.

Adventure. Take risks and embrace where they take you.

Mindfulness. Exercise a nuanced, articulate understanding.

Appreciation. Dwell on the good.

_______

No meager feat – they got a fantastic website too. Digging their looped live action zooming on studio interiors emblazoning their culture tidbits. Videos expanding on processes. Illustrations. Large type and pictures.

Really really good copywriting – choosy projects (including self-initiated) – blog posts – all this rolled into one uninterrupted digital wandering.

Long live!

Names for Change

Names for Change is home to an UMD caritative initiative – selling naming rights to all the items that connect their clients to food, shelter and a future.

Connecting everyone who comes through their doors with food, shelter and a future requires a whole lot of stuff.

_______

What a smart way to raise funds! Give as little or as much. Each vignette explains what each item will have as impact and why they are a necessity to recovering one’s human dignity and place in society.

The website is crafted delightfully. A great interactive and learning experience.

MadeinMTL exit

Prompted to do this post following a recent tweet: ‘The sheer amount of ‘on / off’ – websites that ‘vanished’ is crazy. Thinking of all the man hours and dreams that have disappeared.’ – and ensuing exchange with Chris Tse.

_______

After releasing a little (www) Story – and ystd – reading an article about the people behind the Wayback Machine to discovering that ‘websites last in average 100 days!’ What???? to which Mike Sullivan replied: ‘Viral / campaign sites? Some 30 days.’

_______

Sifting the archives to see if some of the pre-database years featured awsm people / projects are still around.. to do an encore..

I found the multi-awarded MadeinMTL project – of which production cost must have been upwards of multi-hundred grands in government grants + corporate sponsorships to produce this interactive documentary.

Version 1.0 + 2.0 were released.

I followed the link and I was really shocked (do it). To be honest – I don’t get it. Read the feature to understand the scope of loss.

_______

I am blown away! MadeinMTL is a touristic destination site for both visitors and locals. Although this is my hometown, I must admit that the teams (Locomotion and BlueSponge) behind this little jewel have done their darndest to cover the City which is known for its load of good food and creative vibe, shopping, its underground city and lots of cultural events and festivals and much much more.

You can even make your own itinerary. Now if you plan to visit – don’t forget to visit the site and give me a shout!

Here’s what you can find on the site: 425 addresses, 15 000 pictures, 400 texts, 50 hours of video, 40 sound scapes and 25 shorts.

Deluxemodern etc.

Christine Tafoya is a self-professed design addict and renamed ‘etiquette‘ by ‘manners‘ to describe her online store Dear Miss Modern Market ethos where you can find exquisite ‘templates’ for special occasions.

_______

I am a grown-up geeky tomboy eye candy seeking editor while she is this buoyant festive stylish stylist for brand and home!

She recently quipped: ‘HTML gives me asthma.’ To which I replied: ‘<a><strong>O2</strong></a>’.

_______

She befits perfectly the description of a Powagirrrl: Women who rock the design scene with more than pink design..

..and Pink is definitely a predominant color with none of the pejoratives.

_______

Deluxemodern design studio tagline: ‘Mixing business with Pretty – Specializing in all things chic and clever.’

LOVE LOVE LOVE!
