The Happy Film

The Happy Film

19th – Jan – 2018

In late 2011 I contributed via Kickstarter to “The Happy Film”. A project undertaken by design guru Stefan Sagmeister. The promised USB arrived in the mail yesterday. Sure it was a long wait, but I’m fairly sure Stefan is a very busy man, and there were many issues along the way, not least the sad […]

17th – Dec – 2017

As much as I love city life, I do often fantasize about living in a remote location in a incredible building. James Whitaker’s starburst of shipping containers in Joshua Tree National Park stirs up such thoughts. A truly space age looking pad complete with views in every direction. You can see and read more at […]

23rd – Nov – 2017

pixelshifter does animation too! Finally got around to putting an animation showreel together. A selection of various recent projects put together to the joyful bouncy sounds of Barry Gray (theme from UFO). Bring some funky motion to your next project / announcement / invite / project or whatever. Facebook1Twitter0Google plus1X

Zero Latency

Zero Latency

5th – Oct – 2017

Being born in 1970 makes me 11 years old during 1981, one of the many golden years of video gaming. Donkey Kong, Galaga, Frogger and Defender were all released that year. Needless to say my interest in video games has always been healthy. I have also had a strong interest in VR and all it’s […]

WoodSwimmer

24th – Sep – 2017

To use words of his own, “The result is beautiful imagery both abstract and very real.” So true. Jaw dropping piece from clearly gifted animator Brett Foxwell. Not unlike a medical scan of the body, but far more interesting and beautifully put together with sound and edit. Not a lot of technique is revealed, but […]

22nd – Aug – 2017

Apparently there is a shortage of urban space in Valencia, Spain. Fernando Abellanas has a solution, a pop-up studio built into the underside of a traffic bridge at an undisclosed location. While most likely not legal and therefore not permanent, it’s a very creative idea which shows true dedication to his original thought. You can […]

Words

Words

26th – Jul – 2017

Words is a beautiful little typography based video project from Enle Li & Liz Xiong. Complete with great sound, the video captures the everyday with just words and colours. I was moved with it’s simplicity. Well done. Facebook0Twitter0Google plus0X

7th – Jun – 2017

Makin’ Moves is an experimental motion design piece by Japanese based Kouhei Nakama. WOW. A lot going on here. His motion pieces really do carry the Japanese craftsman aesthetic, a super keen eye for detail. Beautiful work. Facebook0Twitter0Google plus0X

Not just happy snaps! Sure there is some great timing and photography knowledge going into these fantastic shots from Copenhagen based photographer Ken Hermann. So much power, tension and movement captured in a single frame. Facebook0Twitter0Google plus0X

A movie poster a day

A movie poster a day

4th – Apr – 2017

Wow. How have I only just heard about this ambitious design project the day after it finished? Sydney based designer Pete Majarich has redesigned a movie poster a day for the past year. I watch a lot of movies, I love movies. His minimal take on well known movies often says a great deal more […]

Aydın Büyüktas

21st – Mar – 2017

I have no idea how these images were produced, sometimes it’s better not to know – I prefer the mystery. Inception type images from Aydın Büyüktaş really make me feel a little dizzy. Found at Designboom. Facebook0Twitter0Google plus0X

John Edmark

12th – Feb – 2017

Well I understand the concept, however I’ll leave the maths to John. Stunning sculptures, printed from 3D models by 3D printers. Once printed the models are set upon spinning mounts and lit by strobe light to give a remarkable floating effect. Many more curious mathematical and geometry projects can be seen at John’s website.
