if your lucky enough to be in brisbane, australia in the near future, make sure you stop by the museum of modern art for a visual treat, this is brilliant.
i was recently bought two books for my birthday, one that i had seen and expressed an interest in and one that i hadn’t even heard of, these books where by a graphic designer by the name of noma bar, now i had only seen very brief section of one of the books and didn’t really know what to expect, what i got was like someone turning on a light and punching me in the face, the two books where “negative space” and “guess who”, both of these books are just incredible.
you may recall i once posted about an erika iris simmons set on flickr called ghost in the machine, which used old tapes to create amazing portraits of famous people, you can see the post here, well it seems erika isn’t the only one to find amazing uses for old cassettes. an atlanta based, chicago born artist by the name of brian dettmer has taken old cassettes and given them a new lease of death, so to speak. check these out.
check this out for thinking outside the box, an ad agency in aukland called ddb have literally been stamping advertisements onto members of the public, altering benches to make them press an advertisement for a clothing chain, superette, into the bare legs of people who sit on them, it reads “short shorts on sale superette”, brilliant
stumbling around the vast interwebs a couple of days ago i came across these beauties created by kyle tezak a visual designer from wisconsin. kyle set himself a challenge to create several four icon image sets to sum up some of his favourite movies, books or historical events, here are some of these brilliantly imaginative icon sets.
