Sweet jebus, I cant remeber the last time I saw flash animation this exiting!
Magnivate is an interactive boutique agency based in Jakarta. Check out their website which comes in the form of an interactive world with some cute illustrations, maybe a bit cliche, but very nicely done. It makes me wonder if sites like these are only viewed by people like me and not by potential clients? Would they bother? Linky
A quite interesting navigation system from Final Art.They are a new media agency based in Poznan, Poland, my cousin lives there. I think I quite like the arrow key navigation. How ever when companies have these kind of flash sites I always find it easier to google them to find out who they are, especially when their contact page says “if you want to contact us click the green cross”.
Yours on a happy Friday!
We all know how easy print design is, which is why we chose the more interesting and challenging digital route. How ever I have to give it up for Made Thought because they produce some pretty swanky print work!

They have worked for MTV, Yves Saint Laurent, Nokia, The Mill, Adidas and many other hawt brands. In 2004 they were awarded ‘Graphic Designers of the Year’ by Blueprint Magazine.

I think everyone who works in a creative environment, over time, becomes somewhat jaded… its only natural. Familarity breeds contempt as they say and so much of what we see creatively is based on an idea or a concept that is already familiar to us.
It takes a lot to shake us out of our malaise and be truly inspired by (or even jealous of) someones particular talent. Thats what seeing the art of Alberto Seveso has done for me and some of my colleagues.
Like something from another world or universe even, Seveso blends photoshop and illustrator elements seamlessy into a strange mix of other-wordly, stylistically challenging imagery which begs closer inspection due to the intricacy and depth achieved in each piece.
And even on closer inspection, I find it almost impossible to see where photographic elements blend into illustrator elements but I find the pieces utterly fascinating… as I’m sure most people do. You can only imagine the amount of man hours required to achieve this level of work but for me, however long they take is time well spent… as is the length of time you take pouring over them – it seems to me that the longer you look the more pleasure you get.

Have fun!! 😉
I was looking at the wonderful work of Kerry Roper, who does stuff on canvas (art) combining photography, illustration and type. He also does work for the fashion industry and has made some t-shirts for top shop, which I am quite tempted to go and buy. How ever I came across this (above) and then realized that not everyone (like me) likes Helvetica. I had always thought that Helvetica was quite agreeable, but it turns out that the fact that everyone from Orange to the dodgy whole sale retailer across the street use this font makes it, to some people, ‘wank’.
I then discovered that Neville Brody, one of my heroes, said in a BBC interview : “When people choose Helvetica they want to fit in and look normal. They use Helvetica because they want to be a member of the efficiency club. They want to be a member of modernism. They want to be a member of no personality. It also says bland, unadventurous, unambitious.” And I can understand that, I do a lot of work for the finance industry, and I use it all the time. Helvetica is safe, it might be a bit unadventurous, but it is also a nice clean typeface.
Yours, purposefully leaving Gill Sans out of this
Ricardo Salamanca does some pretty cool illustration as pictured above reading “Speak Russian in minutes”. He also creates amazing moods in photoshop, you will see what i mean if you go to his Salamagica site. On some of the photoshop compositions he also shows you what assets he has been working with and you can clearly see that it is a long way from the assets to the finished comp.
I also enjoy the detail in the background of this composition, as you can see on his site this room is pretty empty before he puts it in photoshop.
Yours, happy on a Monday morning
I’ve coined the term ‘bitter sweet inspiration’ based on a not in any possible way familiar scenario in my current position:
You come back to work after a day off, the account team has cancelled the flash animated landing page you talked about two days ago, and sold the client a page with a massive logo and all their products crammed in to it. You go to the kitchen only to discover that someone has left just enough for a quarter of a cup in the coffee pot and there is no way of getting out of making a new one. When you open your email there is a ‘URGENT’ gif amends job request which has to be done ‘ASAP’, you think “I’ve heard that before” and then the guy nest to you show you this: http://www.albertocerriteno.com/
Then you feel it, the bitter sweet inspiration, the feeling that after work today I am going to start all those amazing projects I thought about on the tube, or finished that never ending project.
Oh by the way, he also has a blog: http://albertocerriteno.blogspot.com/
Yours, loving Alberto Cerriteno(‘s work)
