Eiko Ojala

February 20th, 2013

To be honest, I’m not really sure how Eiko Ojala made these illustration. Did he cut them out of paper or did he made them digitally … Let’s just say they look awesome.

How to Photograph a Design Poster

March 9th, 2011

JK Keller collected 90 portfolio images of designers displaying their posters. Then he made a poster out of them and cut out the posters from those images. This “How to Photograph a Design Poster” project is actually from 2007 but it’s still great.

Agenda 2011

December 17th, 2010

Julie Joliat designed this Agenda 2011. It has over 50 “connect the dots” puzzles which will reveal different famous art pieces, from Jan van Eyck to Damien Hirst. But it has some nice extras like maps, popular holidays, conversion charts … I really like its simplicity.

The Beauty of Lacks and Limitation

October 29th, 2010

At the end of April of this year, Manuel Bürger held a one week workshop “The Beauty of Lacks and Limitation” at the New Media department of the Merz Akademie in Stuttgart, Germany. The course was about: Design Awareness / Composing in Boundaries / Template Distending /  Breaking inflexible Patterns in Design / Carrying Ideas into Effect. He asked the students to learn to know their software and then to try to bring the software to its knees. The second step was to carry their ideas into effect.
You should definitely check out the website of the workshop. There’re a lot of great examples, research and inspiration, but also the results made by the students. These are my 2 favorites.

Julian Beekmann used the calc-function of Apple Pages to draw mountains with beautiful stone fillings.

Homemade is Best – Update

September 30th, 2010

The nice people of Forsman & Bodenfors have send me some more info on the IKEA “Hembakat är Bäst” baking book. It’s actually a 140 pages coffee-table book, containing 30 classic swedish baking recipes. They were inspired by high fashion and japanese minimalism and decided to put the ingredients in focus. The recipes are presented as graphic still-life portraits on a warm and colourful stage.
You can find all the photos of the ingredients, the biscuits/cakes and the credits here.

It’s Nice That Issue #4

September 28th, 2010

I hope you all know It’s Nice That by now. This Friday, they’ll launch It’s Nice That Issue #4. It’s like the printed version of their website but actually much more. There will be interviews with Nick Knight, Neville Brody, Miranda July, Trokia, RBG6, Noma Bar and Bompas & Parr, features by Sara De Bondt, Adam Buxton, Adrian Shaughnessy, Jez Burrows, Mike Lemanski, Peter Nencini and Micah Lidberg as well as tons of work from the likes of Michael Landy, Rui Teneiro, Peter Grundy and more.
If you pre-order your copy by Thursday evening, you’ll receive a free screenprint by James Jarvis. I’ve already reserved a spot on my bookshelf next to the other 3 issues.
100% recommended by today and tomorrow!
