/ What's new in design digital culture

Guts & Glory

Guts & Glory self-describe their agency as: courage, vigor, character, oomph. Wow – I like that. The core values right off the index. Using the ‘volume’ as navigation – you are brought into a kitschy retro-feely world.

_______

Founded in 2012 by ginger partners in crime, Meg Paradise & Faun Chapin, they came up with an outrageous product.

Helvetica The Perfume, a limited edition project (sic) and yes the bottle is filled with.. distilled water.

They even had the ‘guts’ to post the Lovers & Haters page. Worth a read.

Formagramma?

One of my favorite blogs: Formagramma which covers design and architecture. I love the quality of the curated items. There is passionate dedication.

Check one of the posts to see what I’m talking about.

High-voltage Raduga

Is it too passé to describe Raduga website as having lots and lots of ‘bells & whistles’?? And lots and lots of transitions + colours. Point made??

Experts in the field of multimedia and technical support for events of any scale.

From Russia with love.

Fuzzco revised

At first thought something was awry in the new Fuzzco – just relaunched website – which scrolls up and down – on itself. Not sure if that is a good UI/UX decision, but it sure got my attention.

And the projects? Still stunning.

Have a lookee.

Tonangeber remixes

You’ve never seen a remixes website such as Tonangeber – a project by Ani and Beda. They make playlists and share them for free. Stunning project using generative design.

And a as stunning collection of music.

A sample of the shapes.

_______

Remixes covers.

_______

LP vinyl covers.

_______

ndlr: TwoPoints.Net designed a flexible visual system which allows to design a new cover for each playlist. The visual system – the “Supertool” was custom-made with Processing.

CPLUV / Neuarmy

Walking down memory lane. A rare discovery. Let’s Talk | Inside the studio of Ryan Katrina (Neuarmy) – circa 2010.

_______

Who remembers Computerlove???

Frankowitsch / AT

Frankowitsch located in Austria is in operation since 1932 and looks like a mighty fine establishment. Super minimalist website that conveys vibrantly ‘classy’.

I could very well see myself enjoying the company of friends while degustating their fares. So much choices (pastries, delikatessen, wines) and that terrasse!

Meet me there.

Colin Snow

Colin Snow is an art director in LA. His atypical portfolio website whereas broken shapes from his name – keep appearing where ever you mouseover. New way to safeguard copyrighted material??

100 Days of Making

What could you do with 100 Days of Making? You don’t need to strictly adhere to posting on Instagram and # tagging – as I, perhaps you prefer to take the challenge as a ‘personal’ endeavour. It’s all about committing to it.

Upcoming: April 6 – July 14.

_______

_100 days of the Bubble Gum Dreamer_

Procrastination??? Lack self-discipline??? I do. Not in everything – not even every day – but when it comes to personal projects.. Yepp.

I am taking this little gal (0.5 cm tall) on a journey around my studio + living spaces. I will be creating 100 shots / one a day / strictly shot with my iPhone to a square ratio.

Still devising ‘where‘ to post it.

World Online Orchestra

You need Chrome browser to view the World Online Orchestra (beta) playing Beethoven. Musicians scattered all over and some in odd places (cafe – closet – boat) play their part.

_______

Click a vignettes and ‘that’ musician line will come to the fore – if you choose fullscreen – that musician will appear at the forefront.

JF had such a project in-mind many years ago. Be ready to be amazed.
