100 kilo website

January 18, 2009

We had a couple of days to spare in the office after new years so we decided to do something a bit different during those days. I have wanted to literally build a website for a while so this seemed like the perfect occasion to have a bit of fun and get down with some DIY. So we got a little money at our disposal, made some sketches and started going about getting hold of all the needed material. We bought a lot of plywood some 40 meters of wooden beams, a birds house for the home icon, a folder for the portfolio icon, spray cans, paint, wallpaper and a lots of other stuff, the video tells the rest of the story.

The music in the video is made by tsjekkoslovakia a band by some of my colleagues.

The footage was shot by the one and only, Karina Lavik

The company is M&L.

Here are some pictures from the construction:

World’s biggest screen

October 8, 2008

The UAE development company Tameer Holding is going to build the largest LED screen in the world, projected by Daktronics – the world’s leading digital billboard manufacturer.
Project’s name is Podium.

The screen will cover the facade of a 33 floor high building in Dubailand (Dubai’s entertainement zone), and will be visible from a distance of 1.5 kilometers.

The design of the screen will allow the flow of natural light into the building. How cool is that?

Call (of) the Wild

August 19, 2008

Check this!

You can call this wind powered megaphone on +4790369389 and your call will be beamed across the Norwegian mountains and fjords, scaring the shit out of any nearby mountaineers or just anoying the farmers in the vally below. This is great for those moments when you feel powerless, instead of sucumbing to apathy, start the day like a real man, shout across the mountains, dictator style!

“WHAT IS A TELEMEGAPHONE?
Telemegaphones are tall loudspeaker sculptures that automatically answers incoming phone calls and projects the sound of the caller’s voice into its immediate surroundings.”

Sorry to be lingering on this “office” topic. I know i have talked about this before but i recently found this video of the Zurich Google office featured in a BBC article, and I thought it was worth sharing. Check it out

This is (the) shit!

Tex-server. Love it or hate it? “Marc Kremers updates his beloved portfolio with his greatest hits.” -HiRes
Other than that, it is a pretty crazy page, with some very cool retro web design elements. I think it is very interesting that we now have retro web design, it is very difficult to get it right. The challenge is to create something that looks cutting edge rather than dated, using old web design graphics.
