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!

Going extreme

Going extreme ain’t for everyone but the founding duo (Jan & Hjalti) of karlssonwilker inc are pushing it to the hilt with this out of the box (out of any boxes as that) portfolio website.

Minimalist with funk? Make it minimalist with dizzying mini-gifs spinning and spinning. Metaphor aside – interface is very similar to their spinning talents + imagination.

Top notch designers!

Made in the Future

Made in the Future is an effort to capture our musings about what a not-so-distant tomorrow might look like.

Very nice interface design with flat color animations and large intriguing visuals. Each sections comprise written information and a short video.

_______

IDEO (pronounced “eye-dee-oh”) is an award-winning global design firm that takes a human-centered, design-based approach to helping organizations in the public and private sectors innovate and grow.

In Question

Rilke is an independent creative studio based in North West London. Established in 2009 by David Davidopoulos and Kate Smith, Rilke set out with a clear mandate: ‘We want to produce work that matters. One fundamental step: we question.’

This is a sweet website – using a one-page storyboard that includes tangible visuals and quirky design elements.

Anastasia K.

That flowery interface blew me away. Today UI expectation what not – is keen to favor flat design (which I love since ND has been flat – forever in web years) which shows just about ‘nothing’ as visual expression except for completed projects. All that ok.. but..

Her little place on the web is like a beautiful garden in the shade – waiting to bloom. Altho a work in progress – her portfolio shows one project but a superb one. I can’t wait to see how her career evolves and new projects she gets involved in.
_______

Her name is Anastasia Kolesnikova. She is a twenty two years old designer based in Krasnodar, Russia.

Expect the unexpected

LOVE the typographic treatments done by Alexander Egger aka Satellites mistaken for stars. He has a knack for out-there experimental lay-outs and grids that are near non-legible – and on the other hands he creates minimalist signage that says it all.

_______

The multiple editorial projects he was involved with – attest to his ability to reinvent books – or perhaps better said – how we read.

Expect the unexpected.

Van Gogh IRL

I don’t know how they pulled this – finding a look alike Van Gogh – but the visual impact is undeniable.

Les Impressionistes is a stunning ad campaign for KelOptic – a glassware company.

Superlative idea by Y&R Paris.
