Designer Imagines How Apps And Services Would Be In Pre-Internet Era

Have you ever wonder what it would be like if today’s popular apps and services we use today were available in the pre-internet era? It is hard to imagine Spotify, or Facebook would be if they existed, say, in the 80s, but one man has imagine how today’s icons like Netflix, Snapchat, Adobe Illustrator and more, would be if they existed before Internet rule the world. And that man is UK-based designer Thomas Ollivier, a Senior Creative at advertising agency Tom le French. Continue reading Designer Imagines How Apps And Services Would Be In Pre-Internet Era

Artsy Halloween: Art Students In Japan Dressed Up As Famous Paintings

Never mind that the basis of dressing up during Halloween has changed. These days, even Elvin Presley can ward off evil spirits, and so do the cumbersome human spider and oh, Walter White too. But straying from its origin has resulted in some rather creative Halloween costumes, such as these famous painting costumes by a group of student from The Amazing School of Special Effects. As you can see, the students have put their skills they have learned from the school out there at the biggest Halloween parade in Japan in Kawasaki.

This Halloween, Eye Of Sauron Turned San Francisco Into Middle-earth

For this Halloween, San Francisco temporary became Mordor where the Eye of Sauron kept watch over the city as it perched on top of Salesforce Tower and boy, it was a sight to behold. So, if you were around the area and had the One Ring, and you somehow felt strange on Halloween night, you now know why. It was the Eye calling out to you. Fortunately, J.R.R. Tolkien’s frictional world did not materialize; instead, it was a projection designed by artist Jim Campbell. Continue reading This Halloween, Eye Of Sauron Turned San Francisco Into Middle-earth

These “Shredding” Postcards Is Inspired By Banksy’s Shocking Act

Inspired by Banksy’s epic ‘self destruct’ painting that shocked the world, Belgian graphic designer, Lesha Limonov, has created a series of postcards that kind of replicate the shredded Banksy painting. Each postcard comprises of two parts: a paper frame that looks like a 2D version of the frame that the Girl With Red Balloon was framed and a “painting” that has pre-cut lower half. Obviously, a secret shredder is not present. That would be too over. Continue reading These “Shredding” Postcards Is Inspired By Banksy’s Shocking Act

NYC-Based Artist Installed Trump Statuettes For Dogs To Pee On

We are not political, but this one is too much of a laugh for us to pass on. This is about a bunch of Trump statuettes, but this tiny sculptures ARE NOT a tribute to the POTUS; these busts of the President found scattered around Brooklyn are for dogs to pee on. Depending on your political stand, this could be either an ultimate insult, or just a plain humor. Anyways, each of this tiny Trump is installed on small cuts of astroturf and they are placed by NYC-based artist Phil Gable of Porcupine Armadillo as his way of protest against the most powerful man in the world. Continue reading NYC-Based Artist Installed Trump Statuettes For Dogs To Pee On

Toppled Dominoes Complete The Circuit To Enable This Lamp To Light Up

Switching on the light is an action no one will give a second thought, let alone fun. There’s hardly any interaction other than pressing a button or, in some instances, barking a command to tell Alexa to do so on your behalf. But not with Domino Switching Lamp by Glithero. This unique lamp makes the simple act of turning on a lamp, fun. Well, ‘fun’ if you get a kick out of laying out a train of dominoes and watching them fall. The key to turning on Domino Switching Lamp is copper domino. There are a bunch of them neatly stacked inside the lamp. Continue reading Toppled Dominoes Complete The Circuit To Enable This Lamp To Light Up

Giant Inflatable Tentacles Poking Out Of This Building Is A Sight To Behold

It looked like a scene straight out of a horror movie, but fortunately, there is nothing sinister about these giant tentacles that took over the building because they are inflatables. We have reason to believe it does not even have a body. This is a playful art installation by Filthy Luker AKA Luke Egan and Pedro Estrella AKAPete Hamilton – both whom specializes in inflatable art installations. As you can see, it features enormous inflatable tentacles popping out of the windows of the dilapidated Building 611 at the Philadelphia Navy Yard and it was quite a sight to behold. Continue reading Giant Inflatable Tentacles Poking Out Of This Building Is A Sight To Behold

British Artist Puppeteering An Air-Powered Octopus Was Quite A Sight

Remember the giant puppetry troupe La Machine? Well, this one here called Ocho the Octopus by British artist and puppeteer Tim Davies is somewhat similar, but it is a lot smaller because, it is an one-man-operation puppet. It is inflatable for obvious reasons. Like because, the entire contraption has to go onto Davies so it can’t be awfully heavy and hence, having it filled with air makes sense since it will be significantly lighter and also, being inflatable allows the tentacles to flex in a natural manner as well as making it safe for close contact with the crowd. Continue reading British Artist Puppeteering An Air-Powered Octopus Was Quite A Sight

Artist Takes Balloon Twisting To The Next Level With These Sculptures

I am sure most people will be familiar with balloon twisting. You know, the thing that the clown guy does at some children party? Yeah, that. Like, who would have thought balloon twisting could be an art? I, for one, never, until I saw Masayoshi Matsumoto’s work of art. Mind you, though, Matsumoto’s balloon twisting isn’t the typical sausage-looking swords and poodle dogs. They are pretty damn complex creatures from the animal kingdom. It is incredible as it is surreal that those longish balloons could be manipulated and twisted into animals with so much details in them. Continue reading Artist Takes Balloon Twisting To The Next Level With These Sculptures

Studio Developed A New Font Using Recognizable Company Logos

Here’s a little fun stuff to brighten your day/night. Well, fun, if you are not hostile towards consumerism and also, you have a thing for design. But mostly, consumerism, really. An experimental creative studio called Hello Velocity has created a set of fonts based on highly recognizable businesses’ logo which it named Brand New Roman font. The result is an array of alphabets (a-z) and numbers (0-9) that are refreshingly fun, though not necessary practical. Continue reading Studio Developed A New Font Using Recognizable Company Logos
