Finding inspiring little videos is always nice, and the one above featuring Kyle Blue from Dwell is no exception. Kyle gives a wonderful peak inside the Dwell offices and how the designers work together. It looks like they have such a fun and rad job! Yet again the folks over at Arkitip crank out another great video.
I came across James Joyce’s while looking through the most recent issue of Esquire UK, he did a tiny illustration and I thought it was fun. Sure enough he also did a recent cover of Wallpaper* as well, one that I was really impressed with. Anyhow, James is a British designer who has a studio called One Fine Day, which makes all kinda of neat things.
The images above are flyers he created for the London party It’s Bigger Than. He created these from 2005 to 2007, and with the help of Dave Oscroft, the flyers would be animated and projected in the club as well. Really bright and fun images, I would love to see moving examples of these.
P.S. Here’s some examples on YouTube of the flyers being animated. (Thanks, Katie)
Joachim Baan, who designs under the name Anothercompany, recently refreshed his site with some really great new work. He’s got pieces from all over the place, in all kinds of mediums. One of my favorites is the poster he did for the project Connected, where you ‘remix’ someone else’s poster design. It’s funny how gray can be so expressive!
Gary Hustwit and the folks over at the Objectified movie released a new poster designed by Michael Place and Build. It’s a beautiful metallic silver and black print showing a ton of the objects from the designers in the movie and more. And at 27 x 39 inches this thing is a beast! My favorite detail is that they slipped the movie title into the objects, so sneaky!
The site says it should be released in their shop soon, I’m just hoping it’s not going to be crazy expensive, I want one really bad.
UPDATE: The poster is officially on sale now.
Oh man, you have to watch this video parody of Watchmen, made to look like an early 90′s cartoon show. It’s pretty on spot with how stupid all the character’s would be. It even references a bunch of the plot points from the comic like Rorshach being friends with the animals and The Comedian wanting a kiss, haha… The world needs more of this kinda stuff.
