Nike Music Shoe + making of

April 28th, 2010 // 1 Comment // Posted by Lukas

Nike produced a really cool ad for the Nike Free Run+ shoe. The Act Hifana does a live performance by bending the flexible sole of the shoe.  Cool concept for an ad and it looks like they had a great time producing this.

Pieter from sums up how they did it:

“…the shoes used in the video are the real sound controllers. Tomoaki Yanagisawa of 4nchor5 la6 was responsible for the hardware part. He added flexible and accelerometer sensors to the shoes. Daito Manabe of rhizomatiks did the sound programming with Max.
They were both commissioned by Wieden + Kennedy Tokyo for this project.”

MUSA: Portuguese Design Collective

December 20th, 2009 // No Comments // Posted by Andrea

I’d like to indroduce you to MusaCollective. I found these guys  in the IdN 15th Anniversary Edition, where you can find 250 highly talented creators who have collaborated-sharing their thoughts on the past; and their visions of the future.

And I thought maybe one of our authors, Lukas, is interested in their work. He is currently visiting his homeland Portugal, staying in Lisbon. Maybe he knows these Designers.

MusaCollective was formed in 2003 by Raquel Viana, Paulo Lima and Ricardo Alexandre, a Lisbon-based collective of graphic designers. Musa works with as many aspects of design as possible, from artistic/experimental to commercial. The first headline-making event that the collective was involved in was the “MusaTour” in 2004, in support of the MusaBook project, the first Portuguese emergent graphic-design book ever compiled, published by IdN.

Alex Trochut

December 11th, 2009 // 1 Comment // Posted by Andrea

So, get lifted by this guy from Spain, currently living in Barcelona. Alex Trochut is an independent designer and illustrator, who has design in his genes. I reckon he never draw childish pictures, when he was kid. His trees were almost a perfect copy of nature and when he wrote Mama the first time, he invented a new typography. Ok, jokes beside. I was mesmerized by his work and, in turn, I was engaged, surprised and touched by its variety and intensity. His Typography work is vivid and playful with intelligent patterns and merges with his illustration style. The phrase less is more becomes rightly useless in his interpretation of structures and compositions. Even though the work is so vivid, he found the pure form contained within itself.

Rad campaign “Aids ist ein Massenmörder”

September 25th, 2009 // 1 Comment // Posted by Matthias

The TV- and Cinema-Spot “Aids ist ein Massenmörder” (Aids is an mass-murderer).

That’s the pits. This spectacular campaign by the german agency das comitee was made for the world aids day 2009 and it speaks a very plain language.

The campaign starts on the 1st of December with the slogan  “Aids ist ein Massenmörder” / Aids is an mass murderer. The center of this campaign is defined by the some of the worst mass murderer having sex.

This is very rad indeed but in times where aids is becoming a big part of our daily life and with people starting to be indifferent about the subject, campaigns like this one will surely raise more attention then a funny campaingn would do. It sure is very controversial, in every way, but also good work by the creatives of  “das comitee agency”. So make up your mind and share your opinion about this one.

A first glimpse of the MTV rebrand project by Universal Everything

July 3rd, 2009 // No Comments // Posted by Lukas

MTV International asked the guys from Universal Everything to rebrand the whole thing. Maybe a mainstream topic but the first results look promising. Great Animation work going on…
Here´s what they say:

“We are asked directly to devise the on-air, web and print rebrand of MTV for an international audience of 524 million viewers. Its purpose to cement the channel’s reputation as a powerhouse of youth-oriented programming and creative output.(..) This resulted in the reinvention of the onscreen information graphics with a timeline based system to establish ‘Where you are in MTV time’.

Here are my favourites and there is more to come:
