A student in college created a logo for a contest in 1970 and the logo is still being used today. He also was not a graphic designer and has not done anything since.
While stumbling through one of my favorite product design sites, I walked into a pasture of sheep…stools.
They’re playful, worthy of a good laugh or two, and yet they’re still pretty fashionable. I think these stools by Sam Brown could be thrown into many a modern home and they would still fit the decor.
And I must say that it’s adorable that they have little black stopper “hooves.”
I had to slow down on my posting during the end of April and beginning of May due to my finals. I also then needed a break to do things I’ve been meaning to do for a very long time, including see friends from my hometown, spend some time outside, exercising, and most importantly, cleaning out my computer. It was time for a deep cleaning.
But now it’s time to start posting again. New features and design news posted soon!
Created by Joshua Allen Harris, these animals are plastic bags that are tied together to the vents in NYC. When the air goes through the vents, the air fills the bags and creates the animal.
It’d be a great April Fools Day joke if you could kinda make it look like regular trash then when vents comes on…bam! Scared. I’d scream, probably.
In any way, nice way to approach something people pass by every day. I know our university has vents like that.
Yeah, it’s scary. Hard to believe.
He also said this:
“Design is a dreadful form of expression.”
I can’t go on. I would ramble for ages. I just gotta say that I hope this doesn’t catch on because design is very important.
Leave your comments if you feel so.
I found a link to a visual diary of Stockholm Design Week 2008. Yay! International design and some good typography!
Wait, why didn’t anyone tell me that this was a furniture design exhibition? (Well, I never found anything directly saying that, but tags at the bottom of the gallery opener say furniture fair) The name is misleading. I find myself to already be disappointed. Sigh.
Swiss typography rocks, yo.
Anyway, I love contemporary and intuitive furniture designs. If I was good at metal and woodworking, I would totally do some furniture design.
But once again, I am disappointed with the products. A lot of them I’ve seen before or they just weren’t THAT interesting.
There were a couple things that were pretty good though (I’m trying to think on the bright side):
The only typography I saw was for descriptions of the exhibit. 😦
Directly tied to my current Communication Design class, here are some covers that use just black and white typography, plus or minus a couple little lines. This article calls for the weakness and strengths of the “all typography cover.” I think those are all fairly successful.
This gives me inspiration.
