David Carson on design + discovery

I fell in love while flicking through Ray Gun and The Face in the very early 90s which was my first introduction to design, typography & photography working together. He is definitely an oldie but always a goodie. Word D.

Those clever bastards are at it again...

Ahh those clever Coens. Awesome trailer that for mine is almost a short film in its own right. Great use of looped audio. Can't wait for the big screen.

Nike + Paul Rodriguez

Nike has teamed up with Paul Rodriquez to make limited edition skate shoes and skateboards. What I love about this is that it's not your usual fast paced, quick editing skate video where you only get short glimpse's of the location. It's beautifully executed with long pans of LA in the summertime plus there's a guest appearance of cube at the end. What more could you want? Actually an ice cream will do for me right now.. Word.

D*Face

This is a really great interview with D*Face who is an amazing street artist in London. He is well known for his character styles which is influenced by 80’s-era punk rock, skateboard graphics. His comments mostly on consumerism, media and the public's fascination with fame. Word. D.

Sticky Light



Sticky Light is a project by Alvaro Cassinelli, Kuribara Yusaku and Stephane Perrin of the Department of Information Physics and Computing at the Ishikawa Komuro Laboratory of the university of Tokyo. The light can track contours of objects thus looking like it's 'playing' with you. Pretty cool stuff.
