As a means to create some friendly competition and put their work hard, play hard vibe to the test, Adobe invited Stefan Sagmeister and Jessica Walsh to participate in a series of creative tasks that involved their making the Adobe logo out of random objects. Produced by the always lovely Art Directors Club’s Young Guns division, the resulting project is an online game show called Sagmeister X Walsh. It’s a bright, fun, design based series that shows how creatives have to stay on their toes.
M&E is the design studio of Matthew Bolger and Emelie Lidström. The couple live and work in the Swedish city of Malmö where they combine design, illustration, photography and typography to amazing effect.
Recently they made some great work for OFFSET; a creative conference in Dublin which took place last month. M&E created lots of promotional material and branding for the conference but it was their short colorful video stings that introduced each speaker which really caught my eye.
Since the release of The Grand Budapest Hotel there’s been a streak of interesting stories around Wes Anderson and the way he creates his films. The first interesting site was the color palettes of Wes Anderson, a Tumblr that takes key scenes from his films and defines a perfect palette inspired by it. As you can see above the results are quite fantastic.
“Simple recipes deliciously shot” is the strapline for Forkful.tv. In those four words they perfectly sum up what the website is all about; making simple food look beautiful. While it may be a fairly straightforward premise, the selection of receipes and the quality of their videos is what really makes this website stand out.
Geoff McFetridge teamed up with Bigelow, makers of teas and stuff, to create this charming little video for a project called While You Were Steeping. In the two minutes it takes for your tea to steep, Geoff paints a lovely image that spreads from his notebook and onto the table itself. Honestly I’ll post anything with Geoff painting, it’s awesome to watch.
