Nice animations, nice illustration, nicely done.

Dumb Ways To Die is a simple concept, executed brilliantly with charming illustration, witty animation and a soundtrack which will lodge itself in your head for the rest of the day. It’s perfect for a viral campaign and for all it’s humour, the key message of rail safety isn’t lost. from fftf
“Cloudy” is a short animation created by FriendsWithYou, an art piece with the purpose to transcend its viewers to a relaxed and joyous state. Cloudy was premiered on i am OTHER via Pharrell Williams’ cultural movement channel, an entertainment based portal on YouTube.
This short is an exploration into the Clouds. The idea of clouds singing and performing their duties in a joyful manner show us that everything in our world has a role and a purpose. A sweet visual soundscape that takes the viewer through a personal journey into the sky. Sing, dance and relax as you follow a sweet cast of clouds and raindrops through an entrancing adventure you’ll wish to take over and over again.
Just got this for the kids room, really into this style at the moment brosmind
Loving this branding for Torotoro:
Analysis – Monterrey is a city overpopulated by all kinds of restaurants, and Japanese cuisine is one of the most popular styles. Most of the Japanese spots that you find in the city are chain restaurants, Japanese fast food or high-end cuisine. The gastronomic experience in these three kinds of restaurants is varied, but the common denominator among them is the overexploitation of Asian clichés, and many of them tend to mix Asian cultures without even knowing. Red and white color palettes, as well as “Zen” decorative elements, are also heavy features in the local Japanese restaurant scene.
Concept – More than a Japanese restaurant, Toro Toro is a restaurant in Japan. Its visual identity is based on authenticity, and it is an exploration of the visual culture of one of the most vibrant, influential and interesting cities in the world. Our proposal was to create a visual environment that was reminiscent of a night in Tokyo, with its lights, its dynamism, its culinary delights and its culture.
Identity – Neon lights and Japanese symbols that give you the sensation of being in an unfamiliar place. Over-saturation of key visual elements that remind us of the Ginza commercial district. All of this over a black background.
The Evanta 1959 Aston Martin 1:1 Scale Model (TBA; Auction) is just as big as the original, arriving on a parts tree that measures just over 20′ x 11′. Included in this insane kit are four Aston Martin wire wheels with Dunlop race tires, a “Mota Lita” 15″ wood-rimmed Aston Martin steering wheel, a pair of race seats, an aluminum gear knob and lever, a full dashboard, a replica of the LeMans trophy, and an Aston Martin cap signed by Roy Salvadori and Carroll Shelby, who drove the original to victory at the 1959 24 Hours of Le Mans.
Nicely done, the trail is based around the concept of ‘Stadium UK’ — bringing the nation together in a huge Olympic Stadium to enjoy the BBC’s comprehensive coverage of the London 2012 Games.
Storytelling a word that is abused so widely. Pentagram once again shows us why they are the true Melvilles of our industry.
Buddiband is a response to the clunky personal alarms currently used by many older people. It proposes a comfortable, waterproof wristband alarm that can send alerts to support services from anywhere, in the hope thatits use will allow people with dementia to feel confident about getting out and about.

WTF..F’NA ..Even tho I would never wear it on my head, I’d still like to have one, basically it’s like a segway you know you want to, but are embarrassed by the looks you would get.
Nice viral marketing for Prometheus, Ridley Scott’s Alien prequel. It’s unusual to see TED move into the brand content space and feature this special TED (2023) talk – but, it works for me. It works for the brand (in this case a film) but also stays true to the content creator (TED) values. (from adverlog)
Nice spot by Buck for Google Books. Amazing even if you take out the chrome mark out of the video you instinctively know it’s from Google, nice coherent storytelling in all their work, from UI to animation, to ads.
Twine is the simplest possible way to get the objects in your life texting, tweeting or emailing. Instead of worrying about wiring or networking code, you can focus on your idea. A durable 2.5″ square provides WiFi connectivity, internal and external sensors, and two AAA batteries that keep it running for months. A simple web app allows you to quickly set up your Twine with human-friendly rules — The thing the appeals to me most is no programming needed.
David Bowen installation draws information from the intensity and movement of the water in a remote location. Wave data is being collected in real-time from National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration data buoy Station 46246 (49°59’7″ N 145°5’20″ W) on the Pacific Ocean. The wave intensity and frequency is scaled and transferred to the mechanical grid structure installed at The National Museum in Wroclaw, Poland. The result was a simulation of the physical effects caused by the movement of water from this distant location.
Not only your dog and cat have a twitter account your plants to can have one! When your plant needs water, it will post an update to Twitter letting you know that it is thirsty. It will even tweet a thank you message after you water it. Check out some tweets by a Botanicalls enabled plant @Pothos.
Botanicalls comes in a DIY kit that contains approximately 30 pieces and requires some soldering skills. Don’t stress if you aren’t a tech nerd, there is a step by step assembly guide available online. The ATmega328 microcontroller comes pre-programmed, but you can customize it with your own messages. The only things you need to provide are a plant, a network connection through an ethernet cable, and a power outlet. After you are done building, the kit will manifest itself into a leaf-shaped electronic chip with two metal prongs. Place the prongs into the soil of a plant and let his voice be heard.
The immersion of digital and the physical Sweet Tweet. Uniform has been exploring the idea of Physical Apps, objects that connect to the internet to perform dedicated tasks, enabling users to access information or services without using a standard interface like a mouse, keyboard or touchscreen.
Sweet Tweet is an extension of this idea. We wanted to create a physical app that connected our studio to our Twitter followers, alerting us all each time we get a new follower. We’d also just made our Philosophy film and there seemed to be a great opportunity to bring it to life. So we created a cuckoo clock that dispenses sweets for our team to eat, each time we get a new follower on Twitter. Now every time we’re followed everyone in the studio shares a very tangible, glanceable and aural notification as our clock toots and tweets a sweet, which makes us all smile.
Nike+ FuelBand has done it again not only are they expanding on what the Nike+ brand is.. they have done it with the classic Nike gusto attaching it to lifestyle, popular culture and shit sports, being the athlete that everyone dreams of being! #makeitcount. Oh I’m guessing the budget for I’m guessing again W+K was big based on all the royalties that they would have had to pay for those special classic clips, love the intro!
One Piece at a Time by Jonathan Brand. This work begins as 3D drawings on a computer. he then utilizes a large format printer to translate the digital into the real world as a flat inkjet print. I then cut, fold and glue these numbered and labeled shapes together much like a complicated three-dimensional jigsaw puzzle. The title, One Piece at a Time, is a nod to the Johnny Cash song about a Detroit assembly line worker who dreams of someday owning one of the Cadillac’s he assembles and decides to steal one, one piece at a time and reassemble it. INSANE!
Siggi has always been a fan fav of mine recently just checked out his site has plenty of new work. Great bloody talent and bur your eyes.
Nice style. Lotta Nieminen a multidisciplinary designer and illustrator from Helsinki, Finland.
Hope he gets the funding and approval, this would be awesome reminds me of xmas and new years in Sydney (minus the fireworks) except this can happen nightly (2yrs) in San Fran. The Bay Lights is an iconic light sculpture designed by internationally renowned artist Leo Villareal. The sculpture will be installed and illuminated over the course of the Bay Bridge’s 75th Anniversary.
