The Techincal Challenge of Making Space Travel Easy by Alice Rawsthorn

I think going to space would be the most exciting/scariest thing ever. The unknown has always been one of humans greatest fears, but going in a hot ass Marc Newson designed spacecraft would make things a little bit easier in my mind. Astrium, part of the European Aeronautic Defense and Space Company, has teamed with Newson to design a Spaceplane, a “leisure spacecraft that is part airplane and part rocket. Their biggest competition in the space race? The power team of Philipe Starck and Virgin Galactic. No matter what though, the real winners will be the people getting a chance to ride into space in style.

Take-G Wooden Robot Toys

Take-G Wooden Robot Toys

Vinyl toys are so passé. What’s really cool are little kids with giant robot friends made out of wood! Take-G Toys makes these really fun toys with all sorts of shades of wood, blending the old with the new. I want the ones above so bad, I mean, who didn’t want a hover car as a little kid? Hell, I still want one.

Check after the jump for some more fun pictures.

Bak Online Magazine

Bak Online Magazine

Bak Online Magazine

The pictures above do absolutely no justice to this project.
I tried to find more info out about this, but Bak is online magazine put out by Ozan Karakoc of Turkey. The newest issue just came out, and it weighs in at nearly 300 pages, which is kind of amazing for an online magazine. Not only that, but it’s filled with amazing art, a really great interview with Tom Muller AND comes in it’s own beautiful interface.
I could not say more things about this magazine I don’t think, just go see for yourself.

P.S. If this was a real magazine, I would buy it for the cover alone.

Design a Pepsi Can

Design a Pepsi Can

I personally think this is one of the worst promotions ever.
Pepsi has been running the ‘You Design a Can For Us!’ campaign for a while now, and the finalists have been chosen, as seen in the pictures above. This feels like the 2012 Olympic logo debacle all over again, with the cans reflecting the taste of the average American, albeit not quite as influential as the Olympic logo. None of the designs are particularly creative, although I find the 2nd and 4th one particularly offensive. These were the best designs out of 100,000?! Sad, sad times.

Soner On

Soner On

Flatbush Brown is the website of Soner On, a painter/illustrator who does some really rad hand painted/drawn typefaces. His style reminds me of the Garbage Pail Kids and cartoons from the 80’s, which makes me really happy.

Kin-Pro

Kin-Pro is a Japan based design studio that create some really beautiful patterns. Their work lies somewhere between Marimekko and Geoff Mcfetridge, creating colorful wallpapers and illustrations for kids books. Wonderful stuff.
