Booooooom Submissions / November

november-600

Here is this month’s submission post! Thanks to everyone who submitted work to the October Submissions post. Some of my favourite posts last month came from there.

This is the best way to submit your work to be considered for a post on Booooooom. Thanks again to everyone for up-voting work you like and leaving the positive comments to each other, it really pumps people up, and helps me see what work you like. I encourage you to share your work here because these posts get a lot of traffic and even if your work is not a fit for Booooooom it still gets seen, and definitely sends traffic to your own websites.

Please share your work here this month. The comments allow images to be attached so make sure post an image along with a link to your website.

Submission guidelines:

1. Please don’t flood the comments with a dozen images, just post 1 image that represents your best work along with 1 link.

2. If you see good work posted by someone upvote it so it appears at the top. This is not just a nice thing to do, it helps me see what work you actually like.

3. You can/should also encourage people who are sharing good work here! Comment on their posts and let them know you like what they’re doing. I really want to foster a community here, and this is a simple way you can connect with other people making work.

4. Keep in mind your post may not show up right away because it has an image attached. It may need to be manually approved first so don’t freak out and post a million times, once is enough.

Famous Album Covers Zoomed Out To Reveal Unexpected Surroundings

album-covers-extended05

Digital Agency Aptitude had fun with this series extending the artwork of iconic album covers beyond their original borders to reveal what may have been cropped out. The Justin Bieber one is a little harsh (maybe not). Have a look at more from the series below.

interesting-ball

This short film for Dazed’s Visionaries is perhaps the most absurd thing that Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert have made together so far. The two directors, better known as Daniels, took over the entire Internet earlier this year with their video for Dj Snake and Lil Jon’s “Turn Down For What” (watch it here) and have made a name for themselves turning immature ideas into memorable videos.

Watch their film “Interesting Ball” below.
