Our speaker at the July 2012 CreativeMornings here in New York was the charming and incredibly talented Kelli Anderson. She is an artist/designer and tinkerer who is always experimenting with new means of making images and experiences. You might have seen her TED talk, or maybe her paper record player? She is one of my all-time favorite designers. And she makes amazing fudge.
A big thank you to XO Group for hosting us in their beautiful office space. And a big thank you to Ben Hallman for filming + editing the video.
UPDATE: I apparently didn’t properly credit the work: The invite was designed by studio Melangerie Inc and Lesley Weiner worked collaboratively on the design. And you can get your custom invite over at Etsy.
A little over a year ago three German students tested the design viability of a shiny black cube. They asked established designers and design critics to assess the cube. Above is the video with design legend Dieter Rams.
I agree with Steve Heller, you’ll never look at a cube the same way again (or will you?).
While I am not crazy about the foul language in this stop animation, I am completely in love with the fact that Comic Sans fights back. The last sentence made me laugh out loud. The original monologue was written by Mike Lacher but the animation is by Joe Hollier who also created this amazing stop animation called My Visual Diary.
Don’t we all have a lifetime of dinner table photographs, each celebrating a holiday, birthday, or special event. Pictures that depict the same dinner table and usually the same cast of characters — family members, friends, neighbors. Combined, they create a seemingly never-ending scene. Colored dots represent the designer’s relationship to each person. I absolutely love this idea. Hat tip to Kim Bentley!
