“City Evocation” is a content series by Land Rover USA in celebration of the release of the new Range Rover Evoque. The series presents 3 cities as seen through the unique eyes of 3 creatives who are pushing culture ahead. This episode explores melodies and noises around Los Angeles as producer Jason Stewart, better known as Them Jeans, produces a song using sounds he finds throughout the city.
Them Jeans is known for his original blend of house music inspired by LA, a city and culture he has been immersed in his entire life. Watch the video below!
This is one of the coolest job application forms I’ve ever seen! Google Creative Lab is now accepting applications for The Five, a one-year paid program in the lab! They’ve previously had writers, filmmakers, designers, developers, and even some people who didn’t fit any of those titles.
Their first test for you is to see what you can do with a few simple shapes, a search bar, and a blank page. The interactive application was made by current Fivers: Andrew Herzog, Pedro Sanches, Simone Noronha, Enli Li, and two non-Fivers (Carly Ayres and code from Nicky Tesla).
Apply here and check out some of the submissions below.
Here’s a heads up for anyone looking for some new fonts without spending an arm and a leg. The Hungry Jpeg is currently offering a March Script Font Bundle that includes 38 fonts and 9 graphics packs for a grand total of $29.
I could see these working well for people running little shops or wanting to overlay text on their Instagram images. If you’re interested check out the “March Script Font Bundle”.
I’ve included a few examples of the fonts below.
Berlin-based photographer Michael Schulz, better known as @Berlinstagram on Instagram, shared his first iPhone photo on the platform back in 2010. Since then he has become one of the most popular German Instagrammers amassing over 400k followers.
Schulz was recently sent a special digital compass, called The Seeker, and led to an unknown destination programmed into it. The device was inspired by the all new Infiniti Q30 which breaks the mold of conventional design with a reverse crescent shape on its rear and an elevated stance to give new perspective on the city (in the same way Schulz’s photos do).
Watch the video below as the photographer follows The Seeker into his city, taking photos along the way.
To support the launch of the all-new Q30, Infiniti created the Seeker – a modern day version of the traditional compass, inspired by the vehicle.
With the ability to point you to any destination on Earth, the Seeker was put in the hands of a number of influencers, including Instagrammer Michael Schulz, aka @berlinstagram, who got a chance to test drive the new Q30. Seeker led the way to the car, which was hidden in a secret Berlin location.
It’s no secret Leo wants that Oscar, and an animation studio called The Line has turned his quest into a hilarious video game! Dodge photographers, pick up SAG Award bonuses, and crawl to your lambo high on quaaludes – this game has it all! I was actually surprised how fun this was to play! Head over here to try it or if you’re too lazy, watch the gameplay video below!
*Update – If you missed the live stream of “The Life of Pablo” and the debut of Yeezy Season 3, it’s playing on a loop here.
