These guys make really great multimedia displays with projection mapping. This is one of their latest. Great use of space, live vj, drawing, motion graphics, and sound. See more of their stuff here.
There are a ridiculous amount of tools, web apps and resources being developed to help designers and developers improve their process. Some of them make it easier to share with your clients faster too. This one however seems to be actually worth switching up your process for. A simple drag and drop system that lets you build pretty much any mobile template you like with several graphic libraries. You can add, customise, site map, interact with, comment on and send to anyone. Build a fully functional prototype you can even test out on your device, and show clients. I’ve only played with a few of it’s features, I will need to test it on a real project and get back to you. Hopefully it’s as good as I think it is.
I love experimenting and I love when it envolves making things with your hands. It’s just very satisfying making art outside the computer sometimes…coming from someone who works mostly in digital. I also love the idea of taking hand made things – into the world of experimental technology. —-> Too.Many.Possibilities. <—–
“In Deutsch but subtitled in English, online video short series “REIGN OF ART” visits experimental printers Stefan Guzy and Björn Wiede in Kreuzberg, Berlin.
It’s decidedly non-digital inspiration – but serious inspiration. Finding the “narrative of substances,” this film reveals the new, experimental approach to materials. It’s a sense perhaps born in the digital age of hybrid forms and endless possibilities on virtual canvases. It’s also reborn in the return to materials you can touch with your fingers directly.”
This is the best example of mixing creative technology and design together to produce a well thought out, clever and adaptable brand. Seriously cool stuff.
“In collaboration with ATMO design studio, Berlin based studio FELD created a new visual identity for Pigmentpol, a digital printing company in Germany. The new identity system uses Processing to generate a custom logo for the variety of Pigmentpol corporate media, including personalized stationery, shop interior and vehicles.
The hexagon functions as a key object for the geometry, within which additional intersections can be arranged. Following a chosen color scheme, every segment is colorized and all intersections are highlighted. Before exporting the graphic as a PDF file, the ability to scale and crop to a desired area is given and finally the generated graphics can be further processed or simply used within the regular layout process.”
