I stumbled upon the jaw dropping animated GIFs of Mr. Div (Matthew DiVito) a motion graphics designer and aspiring game developer. His GIFs are generally based around geometric shapes, with effects that range from subtle to sublime. Some nice eye candy!
These are stills of some of my favourites, but click here to see them in action on mr.divs' tumblr page. Enjoy!
This post is a follow up on my previous blog a couple of weeks ago looking at the talk at the Design Museum 'GraphicDesign& Great Expectations'. I attended the event last week on Thursday 10th May 2012. It was fantastic!
Last year I wrote a post about the measures the Kenyan government is implementing in order to curb gender imbalance in the Engineering industry. Well, this year, I was invited by the National Industrial Training Council (NITC) to share my experience with the 6th and newest intake into the programme.
A few months ago what caught my attention on the news was a mystery knitter who attached a 50-yard-long scarf featuring woollen athletes to Saltburn pier. It had a dramatic effect as this huge creation of beautifully knitted athletic figures appeared overnight. What was wonderful about it was that it delighted young and old alike as the town discussed the piece and it also drew more people/tourists to the seaside resort to see it. It was great to see such positive hype over the upcoming Olympics.
I normally like to focus on things that are aesthetically stunning in the art & design world. But this week I have come across the new proposed packaging design for cigarette packets in Australia which are a far cry from the tobacco industries advertising which concentrated on portraying the glamorous powerful life you could lead if only you smoked brand X. Advertising seems to be being turned on its head in search of the most repulsive ad you can create.
