Over the past couple years, Kim Laughton has taken club flyers to another level entirely, designing for Sub-Culture Shanghai and forward labels like Fade To Mind. The Shanghai-based net artist has become known for his particular use of original and stock 3D objects to create surreal imagery. When I look at his work I can feel something unlocking in my subconscious. Lots more images below.
This colourful images above do not do this justice! Feelers is a stunning type and motion project by Ari Weinkle “typographic experiment based on the movement of animal appendages”. Watch the video below!
For the third issue of Print Isn’t Dead, People of Print have teamed up with Hewlett-Packard to do something pretty original! Readers can personalise the cover of the magazine, up to 250 characters. Designer James Lunn will individually typeset each cover using Patron typeface by Milieu Grotesque. You can learn more here.
A Spanish printing studio called Estudios Durero, has developed a printing process to create 3D versions of famous paintings so that blind people can experience them. The technique is called Didú and it essentially turns high resolution images into sculptures.
Blind and sighted visitors are invited to touch artworks at the exhibit at Madrid’s Prado Museum, Hoy toca el Prado. More images and a video clip from this wonderful project below.
Lonneke Gordijn, Ralph Nauta and Jozeph Hendricks have created a really unique lamp here! The “Shylight” is made of silk and is designed to fall from the ceiling, blossoming like a flower as it goes. After a period of time it retracts and climbs back up towards the ceiling. Watch the video below!
The fact that this is a gun is kinda stupid but I do think an 8-bit instant camera that prints out images like receipts is cool! Moscow-based media artist Dmitry Morozov built this gadget using an old game boy, arduino, a camera, and a thermal printer. Watch the video below.
