ffffinally!

I ffffinally got myself an invite to ffffound! Hooray. For whatever reason it is next to impossible to get an invite to join the site.

Anyways, I was poking around the site and came across these great images used to promote ffffound’s in-house t-shirts. What do you do when you can’t get a decent looking model for your photoshoot? You force Paris Hilton and Kate Moss to model your gear by ripping up the photos and sticking them together! Brilliant.

And then I remembered I had seen something similar to this recently. Evan over at Curse of the Multiples did something similar in a lookbook for a company called Industry. A little different, and pretty cool as well:

So now you have two options for shooting a lookbook with ugly models. I want to clarify that I’m not saying these models were definitely ugly, I’m just saying you have options. If you happen to be one of the models whose pretty face has been obscured and you want to prove just how beautiful you are, feel free to email me a photo of yourself along with your phone number.

    Man, I’ve yet to get my hands on an invite!

    Hahah…Hate to be one of those models. What’s the point of modeling all these clothes if no one can see you face.

    Oh yeah, the extravagant lifestyle and easy money. I stand corrected.

    krissy if i had an invite to give you i would.

    for anyone that’s looking for one, here’s how i got mine:

    if you post in there you have a good chance of getting one, there’s a guy organizing it so you get one and he takes your invite and passes it on to the next person in line for one (which is why i don’t have an invite to give)

Photographer Captures Rare Natural Phenomenon

Kagaya1

Japanese photographer and digital artist Yutaka Kagaya happened to be in the right place at the right time, capturing what looks like a rainbow-blasting airplane flying above Oshino-Mura, Yamanashi Prefecture. While the effect can be explained as a form of cloud iridescence, that’s still pretty amazing! Check out a spectacular close up shot below!

June 6th to 8th marks the return of the Design is Future “congresstival”, which involves 3 days of 15 speakers discussing success stories and new approaches to design, specifically focused on improving people’s lives and the world around us.
