Gwendolyn Huskens is a student at the Design Academy in Eindhoven, The Netherlands. She studies in the department of man and identity. Her project Medic Esthetic is about the beauty of imperfection.

adidas Y-3 fall/winter 2008-2009

August 22nd, 2008

The adidas Y-3 is one of the few websites who relaunch twice a year. It’s a fashion thing I guess, adidas Y-3 is a cooperation between adidas and Yohji Yamamoto. Over the years, the website was always on the forefront of Flash based web design. But it is nice to see that they are cutting down on the effects and go for a more straight forward approach. I’ve noticed this on many websites lately, simplicity is making a big comeback. So maybe the spring/summer 2009 website will be mix between Flash and HTML.

This womens shoe called ‘Molnet’ is definitely one of the weirdest things I’ve ever seen with 3 stripes on. It is so hideous that is cool again, just never ever put those red things on.

The Way Things Go

April 10th, 2008

The Way Things Go‘ is a film by Peter Fischli & David Weiss, an artists duo from Switzerland. It’s a 30 minutes chain reaction video made in 1987, and definitely worth watching. I can also recommend the video work by Roman Signer.
