Retro, Saul Bass inspired, video for the new Resistance game. Love the styling.
Slow motion awesomeness. It never gets old. RT @StevenYip
A slow moving piece of public art. People passing by won’t even realise it slowly changes, its only seeing the final stop motion that reveals the movement.
the lucre has created this nifty little experiment which generates patterns based on COLOURlovers palettes. I always find it a bit tedious exploring the site looking for interesting colour combos so this is a nice way to hit the ‘shuffle button’.
So this is genius in my humble opinion. Put simply:
Mapnificent shows you areas you can reach with public transport in a given time.
This functionality ported into property search engines would make life so much easier when trying to decide where to live.
Mario Kart Wii Experience
Nice little site to promote the Mario Kart franchise. The transitions and use of multiple layers and parallax are all really nicely implemented. Nice little case study.
A look behind the scenes of Period. , an interactive projection and audio installation controlled via iPhone. Made for the Mutek festival in Montreal.
Interesting use of tech I’ve only seen used for ad campaigns with any frequency.
Jurjen Versteeg created this video as his graduation piece, he describes it as:
…a possible title sequence for a fictitious documentary, this film shows a history of the title sequence in a nutshell. The sequence includes all the names of title designers who had a revolutionary impact on the history and evolution of the title sequence. The names of the title designers all refer to specific characteristics of the revolutionary titles that they designed.
The mood captured in the piece is superb and the whole thing has a cohesive simplicity that takes it to another level. All in all I can’t commend Jurien enough.
FontBook iPad app
Browsing fonts is always a bit of a nightmare, do you browse by foundry, style, keyword…? When I’m searching for a font I normally end up with hundreds of tabs open and I start to loose track of why I’ve gone done certain paths. So I love the way you navigate through the different foundries and faces in this app. Zooming in and out from across different grids representing different levels of categorisation. It keeps everything linear but allows for tangental discovery.
I also love the compare feature which lets you stack different fonts up against each other, customise the sample by changing copy and colour and then share it to your social networks to get your peers’ feedback.
I can see this being expanded with extra browsing methods like font family trees, timelines etc to make font discovery educational.
All in thumbs up and thanks for the find goes to nickmulley
