GIFs: How They Should Be Done

GIFs have been taking over the internet for quite some time now and it’s easy to see why; they showcase illustrations, artworks and photography in a quick, animated succession are quite fun. Let’s be honest though, most GIFs are not really very inspirational. The same cannot be said for the mesmerising animated GIFs from Carl Burton. His works are simple, serene and absolutely stunning. Inspired by everything from news stories to his surroundings, the colours and intricate animations make these GIFs stand out from the crowd.

Inspirational Illustrations

Chinese illustrator Rlon Wang has created a series of incredibly detailed, Japanese-inspired animal illustrations. The colour, composition and level of detail in his works is impressive. Can you imagine how long these might have taken to complete? If you’ve got time, check out some of his other work too; it’s amazing!

Comic Sans for Cancer

Typography is a big deal in the design world and there is one typeface, Comic Sans, that has become the subject of much discussion. In short, most designers actively dislike it! It was with this in mind that Cancer Research UK launched “Comic Sans for Cancer”, an exhibition of posters inspired by the 20th anniversary of the font we all love to hate. Over 500 designers and artists from 38 countries created posters showing what Comic Sans means to them. The results are diverse and intriguing and really challenge the way we look at this divisive typeface. It’s all quite fun but the best part is that all proceeds from the event would go to the charity, helping it on its mission to eradicate cancer.

Art from Exercise

Leading up to a Nike women’s 10km run, design studio Variable made “FuelBand Fibres”, an artistic interpretation of a week of activity from seven participating individuals. To celebrate effort of preparing for the run Nike has chosen 7 influential runners equipped with FuelBands. Up to the minute Nike Fuel data was then collected 24/7 and delivered to Variable to transform into beautiful artworks. So, the “Fibres” project was born creating 7 digital fibres that grew when the person worked out. Each fibre represents a day, each essentially a timeline from bottom to top. Thickness represents activity, and colours represent times when a person led in the FuelBand community. The results are beautiful and organic. We would definitely be inspired to work out more just to see how the visual results changed! Check out Variable’s “making of” video below:

Retro Cars: Back to the Future

Italian automobile firm Bertone has opened up its doors to British photographer Benedict Redgrove allowing us all a rare glimpse of their distinct artistic approach. Highlighting geometry, architecture and engineering, Redgrove has captured some of the company’s most radical concept cars from the 1960s and 70s — some never seen before — including designs for Alfa Romeo, Lamborghini and Lancia. The series of images was originally commissioned by wallpaper* magazine and really highlights Bertone’s use of unique materials for standard auto parts and super-sleek interiors built for luxury and functionality.

The Wish Tower

The ‘Wish Tower’ installation at this year’s BOOM Festival in Portugal is an amazing fusion of technology and art. The concept all started with Yoko Ono’s 1996 installation ‘Wish Tree’ which was then updated by artist collective MySquare’s Wish TreeAt last week’s BOOM Festival in Portugal, MySquare again encouraged festival-goers to turn their internal desires into ebullient beams of light that rocketed into the skies. The tower works using a simple four step processes: 1. Visitors visualise a wish. 2. They press a button. 3. Their wish reaches the tower top through light. 4. Their wish is sent to the cosmos via laser beam as the festival watches.

There are no reports on whether the Tower made any dreams come true, but that would not have stopped us from trying it out!
