John “Chip” Scarlett -> Diver Photography

I recently discovered the amazing photography of John “Chip” Scarlett, an award-winning underwater still photographer and certified diver of 45 years. His photographs offer a rare view into the underworld, and in many cases, in a way that transcends the documentary style of photography and very much becomes that of fine art. So much amazing […]

What do you Love? -> Google

As Google continues to expand as a company, I expect to see more and more innovative ‘risks’ emerge from within the walls of their empire. Google is now asking us “What do you love?”… Not quite as fancy as the Google ‘art project’ that came out earlier this year, but just as interesting from a […]

twistcone -> Monster Coloring Book

Monster Coloring Book from twistcone on Vimeo.
How simple is this idea? Monsters and coloring are pretty much the definition of fun if you ask me. Great to distract the kiddos on your next road trip, I know my nephews would dig this. Nice illustration work, lot’s of fun colors and tools as well…
Notes from Vimeo:
“We’re […]

Johannes Heuckeroth -> Architectural Photos

I’ve been following the updates by Nuremburg, Germany based designer and photographer Johannes Heuckeroth for some time now. His latest batch of architectural photography is really stunning, consistently magical light, thoughtful cropping… I especially like his long exposure cityscape captures. If you enjoy works like these, you’ll want to stop by his Flickr stream for a few clicks.

Daniel Kornrumpf -> Knit Portraits

I’ve seen these knit portraits by Daniel Kornrumpf blogged and re-blogged quite a bit in the last few days, and rightly so. They are nothing short of amazing. The artist’s attention to detail and sensitivity to skin-tone and color reminds me of some of the works created by Lucian Freud. Many more to see on his […]

Spike Solutions #2 -> Jacob Niedzwiecki

Spike Solutions #2 from Jacob Niedzwiecki on Vimeo.
I really like the innovative thinking behind with this generative compositing video exploration by Jacob Niedzwiecki. It’s this kind of tinkering that gives birth to new ideas and trends, hungover or not. Have a look.
Notes from Vimeo:
“In this screen test, the video in any zone of the left half […]

Nightsurf -> Iker Elorrieta

Nightsurf from Iker Elorrieta on Vimeo.
Shot by Barcelona videographer Iker Elorrieta, this video captures a fairly rare look into Surfing at night. It’s amazingly captured and the moody soundtrack adds an air of sophistication to the piece. Well worth a view. The last shot of one of the Surfers up against the moon is unbelievable.

Thomas Couderc & Clément Vauchez -> Helmo.fr

One of the more inspiring portfolios that I have seen in a long time is coming from France based design duo Thomas Couderc & Clément Vauchez. Everything from photo composite fine art prints to beautifully designed, energetic typography poster concepts, their portfolio site is a great destination to harvest some fresh ideas.

Thomas Blanchard -> Slow-Mo BMX/Motion

Pi from Thomas Blanchard on Vimeo.
Taken at 1000-2000 fps this 550D slow motion test footage is packed with some nice filters, motion tracking and various other bits of eye candy. There is a lot going on, but it’s so well done that it all works beautifully together, especially with the moody and peaceful soundtrack. Not your […]

Octave Typography -> Ana Gomez

The typography works coming from NYC based designer Ana Gomez are pretty amazing to take in. The accuracy and consistent flow of the line quality is nothing short of fantastic and great fun to look over.
Notes from Behance:
“Octave has been created with the intention of fusing together the graphical elements of written musical composition with the English alphabet. […]

Dirk Dallas -> iPhoneography

I’m having a lot of fun keeping up with Flickr contact and SoCal based designer Dirk Dallas lately on his photo stream. The majority of his colorful and atmospheric shots were taken with his iPhone and modified with various apps. He’s got a ton of fresh photos to check out. Nice way to discover apps […]

SpongeBob -> Clothing Graphics

It’s Friday. I figured that simple fact warrants a post that is all about fun and playfulness, as I rarely do post about “fun and playfulness”. Yes, in air quotes even. This fine rendering of a high-design SpongeBob SquarePants is coming from an agency in Nottingham, London called ‘Studio Output’.  Their site is very much […]

NYC Photos -> JHSINDESIGN

The above photos are a few highlights from my recent NYC trip. It’s been a while since I’ve posted any of my “hobbyist photography” efforts. I’m still loving the Canon 7D. I still haven’t found the time to take any serious HD video with it, hoping to do so this summer. Especially since I’ve added […]

Mindrelic -> Manhattan in Motion

Mindrelic – Manhattan in motion from Mindrelic on Vimeo.
Great timelapse work coming from Rochester, NY based videographer Josh Owens. From his sweeping slow pans over time square to the street level pedestrian shots this video is absolutely stunning.

Viewbook Portfolio App -> iPad

Viewbook Portfolio for iPad from Viewbook on Vimeo.
Here’s another very cleanly designed portfolio option for designers and photographers called Viewbook. There seems to be so many great ways to display work lately, especially with Behance’s release of ‘Pro Site‘. I’m thinking of updating my own…
