make my logo bigger

Posted on | October 30, 2007 | No Comments

take a look at this funny web video. unfortunetaly for those who work in design and all related fields they do know that there is a lot of truth to it. painful client meetings to eliminate white space and increase logo sizes. although i have to say, some designer take it to the extreme opposite direction. does someone know a website which “promotes” that? make my logo smaller (so i can’t read it at all anymore). but seriously the “make my logo bigger” video and website is funny.

electronic music art - reacTable

Posted on | October 29, 2007 | No Comments

the reacTable is an electro-acoustic music instrument with a tabletop tangible userinterface that has been developed within the music technology group at the universitat pompeu fabra in barcelona, spain by sergi jordà, martin kaltenbrunner, günter geiger and marcos alonso.

the reacTable is a round translucent table, used in a darkened room, and appears as a backlit display. by placing blocks called tangibles on the table, and interfacing with the visual display via the tangibles or fingertips, a virtual modular synthesizer is operated, creating music or sound effects.

(source: wikipedia) thanks for the hint kabe!

untraditional

the fun stuff doesn’t always have to be tv or classical print advertising. three examples for some good untraditional thinking.

writings on design and culture

Posted on | October 24, 2007 | No Comments

interesting website with writings on design and culture. it takes some time (as always if you have to read) to go through and get into their website but there is some good stuff on there. useful links and recommendations, need to get used to the first impression of text overload but once that settled it’s fun.

richard may

Posted on | October 24, 2007 | No Comments

richard may, co-founder of wyld stallyons, pixelsurgeon and black convoy is an artist, illustrator and designer who has published editorial work for clients such as time, ray gun, wired, vogue and many more as well as commercial work for nordstrom, waterstones and the french car manufacturer peugeot. he also did numerous exhibitions showing is art work. think his unique and expressive style, mixing graphical 2d and photo 3d elements, is great. while most of his work is not “loud” and busy at all there is quite a bit of depth in his work that you need time to explore all details in it.

whether you are pro war and army or against it, this commercial for the us navy seals is a master piece of simplicity in concept and execution – spot on.

with 10.000 frames per second

Posted on | October 20, 2007 | No Comments

came across a great commercial and even though it’s not new it’s worth it to show. malcom venville directed this aesthetically stunning and impactful piece for amv bbdo and their client choice fm. having ex navy seal mark stefanich shooting with his hand gun and no stand on the shown objects malcom shot the same object with his camera at 10.000 frames per second. wow.

beer time 2

Posted on | October 20, 2007 | No Comments

guiness’ latest commercial – directed by marc craste – is a bit strange. visually interesting the story can’t hold up with the style and the pay off is flat. the microscopic view at the end creates and leaves me with the image of some unhygienic bacteria living in my beer. was hoping and expecting a more witty end.

Posted on | October 20, 2007 | No Comments

ok, this is quite funny and as it often is, the best thing are the little details. what would this spot be without the trucker opening the bottle at the end with the poor pigeons head. nice and different kind of beer commercial.

Posted on | October 20, 2007 | No Comments

play and donate rice to hungry people. this vocabulary game helps feeding hungry people. for each word you get right the sponsors of the site donate 10 grains of rice. as stated by the website more than 5 million rice grains are donated that way each day.

even though it’s simple, the game has something very addictive to it. freerice.com is a sister site of poverty.com, run and developed by john breen. check it out and see what you can bring to the table.
