Artist Dominic Wilcox Creates Art Exhibition Specifically For Dogs


London-based artist and designer Dominic Wilcox (if you don’t know who he is you have to watch this) has come up with the ultimate contemporary art exhibition for dogs as part of an initiative to encourage people to play more with their pets.

Working in consultation with veterinary experts, installations include an open car window simulator and a 10 ft ball pit made to look like a dog bowl filled with dog food. Paintings by artists Claire Mallison, Joanne Hummel-Newell, Robert Nicol and Michelle Thompson hang low to the ground and specifically draw on colours within dogs’ visual spectrum.

Such a great idea! Check out more images and video of the exhibit below, including some of Wilcox’s preliminary sketches!

Invention of the Day: Handheld Device Is Like Shazam For Fonts


London-based designer Fiona O’Leary’s graduation project from the Royal College of Art is a nifty little device that captures and identifies typeface and colours — beaming the samples directly to a nearby computer or storing the information for later.

While it’s merely a prototype, Spector is basically a dream tool for graphic designers and creatives who often encounter inspiration in the real world. Wired referred to it as “Shazam for fonts” but also pointed out that one major obstacle in its development may lie in its ability to aid in design theft. Check out the video below!
