Bloomberg Businessweek continues to kill it with their art direction. They recently created parody versions of other well-known magazines for their annual The Year Ahead issue, mimicking the style of iconic publications like Time and Wired to convey the range of topics that are going to matter in the coming year. See closeup images of the parodies below.
Our friends at The World’s Best Ever have tapped artists (and Oasis fans) Tim Lahan, Justin Hager and the gang over at Friends of Type to create gig posters for the release of the new documentary, Oasis: Supersonic. Can’t wait for the film. Check out more images below.
An incredible installation by Tokyo-based artist Nobumichi Asai. “Kagami” (or “mirror”) scans a participant’s face and uses roughly 5,000 motorized rods to create a 3D replica. More images and video below!
Brooklyn-based Richard Clarkson Studio and the levitation experts over at Crealev have come up with a speaker prototype designed to look (and float) like a cloud. The aptly named “Cloud” is outfitted with Bluetooth capabilities, LED lights (for the lighting effects), and a magnetic base. While not yet available for commercial release, you can check out a video of this whimsical invention below!
Our friend Will Hudson (founder and director of It’s Nice That) is launching an educational resource to help the next generation of creatives find a job after graduation!

Not sure how this exists??? Someone has uploaded a collection of 80 high-resolution film posters stripped of any text. Can’t tell if they have next-level Photoshop skills or some other kind of voodoo that made this possible. In any case, thank you, Internet. Have a look at them all here. I included a bunch of my favourites below (there’s a common thread to the ones I picked).
*Edit – just discovered that the link I posted was actually a repost and this was originally posted by Reddit user Join_You_In_The_Sun, so I’ve updated the link in the post.
Motion-control artist Bruce Shapiro’s “Sisyphus” is an incredible sand drawing machine that creates elaborate patterns using magnets (click here for previous post). While several installations have been set up in countries around the world, Shapiro is now working toward a version people can enjoy in their own homes!
