Typedrummer

24th – Aug – 2015

You don’t seem to see these sort of fun little internet toys as much as you used to. Maybe most of them existed in the now defunct flash department. Typedrummer by Kyle Stetz is just great – super simple and very well executed. Depending on your curiosity though and I expect mostly dependant on your mood, be prepared to lose some time. Use this link – that’s just a screen grab below!

Chocolatexture

22nd – Jul – 2015

Love this project by Canadian based, Japanese designer Oki Sato. Beautifully designed set of 9 chocolates. The same chocolate is used in each, the idea being that they taste a little different from each other based on the form and texture, bet it’s true too. They look too good to eat – but I would! Super job on the packaging as well, great design Oki.

Angus O’Callaghan – Melbourne

12th – Jun – 2015

Here’s a kickstarter project worth backing, I did. Brilliant photography from an era passed, from about the time I came into this world, ’70 to be known. The stunning images were taken in and around Melbourne between 1968 and 1971, and from the few I have seen, they are remarkable. A found old green shoe box full of negatives, then later a chance meeting with Ben Albrecht, all leading to this beautiful book. Can’t wait for my copy. Looks like their target has been reached, excellent.

Kevin Cyr

22nd – May – 2015

Maybe it reminds of being a little boy, staring at cars and trucks from the back seat of the car. I have been a big fan of Kevin Cyr for many years. If you like his work, his website is well worth a look. His ongoing vehicle series grows and grows. Prolific.

Michael Wolf

3rd – May – 2015

Architecture of density, is an amazing photo series by Michael Wolf showing the high rise buildings of Hong Kong. The images conjure up all sorts of alternate visions and feelings. Powerful stuff. His website is well worth a thorough look if you find the time.

Visionary

29th – Apr – 2015

Thank you internet. If this guy is at a party then that’s dedication, but I have a feeling this is more likely forward thinking mother Russia.

Love a Simpsons pop culture mash up, here’s another. No idea where I found this.

Kazumasa Nagai

10th – Feb – 2015

Great design from Japans Kazumasa Nagai. At 86 years young, must have been way ahead of his time. Love both the colour and composition. Found at Juxtapoz.

The Circular Calendar

27th – Jan – 2015

Just discovered this beautiful design project – The Circular Calendar. Looks like an egg, round and encompassing life – nice one. Bit late, sold out for 2015 – will have to look out for next years version. More info here.

Brasilia

8th – Jan – 2015

Stunning images from French photographer Marcel Gautherot taken in the 50’s during the development of the new city Brasilia, designed by architect Oscar Niemeyer to replace the then capital Rio de Janeiro. Looks super slick and modern even now. Bucket list destination.

Pantone Brews

14th – Dec – 2014

Yes I do quite like beer, and pantone colours too. So only make sense that I found these design experiments from Txaber very appealing. Beer for spaceships.

The year 10,535

10th – Oct – 2014

Well that’s looking fairly far ahead. How have I not heard of Don Hertzfeldt before. This is sublime. Maybe even acutely accurate. You can find more of Don’s genius at his website www.bitterfilms.com

Just John Wayne in a pink bunny suit – that’s all.

5BORONYC – VHS

4th – Sep – 2014

5boro-nyc

As previously posted on this blog, I have a fondness for the retro tape graphics of previous decades. 5BORONYC have recently released this great VHS series of skate decks – tape decks you might say. Desirable.

A Perfect Blend

23rd – Aug – 2014

How clever is this! Another genius pop culture mash up involving The Simpsons. Russian designer Constantin Bolimond very cleverly blends the work of Dutch painter Piet Mondriaan with the very recognisable Homer and Marge Simpson. A perfect blend indeed.

Air Drive

20th – Aug – 2014

When I was 10, I felt fairly sure that this is how cars would look around now. Not yet it seems. A bit of clever retouching from photographer Renaud Marion creates the illusion of the floating car and hopefully a glimpse into the future. Smooth ride indeed.

Gotta love a clever pop culture mash up. Bart Simpson meets Jean-Michel Basquiat. Nice one. By Vacancy Projects.
