Sometimes genius is quiet!

Friday, October 14th, 2011

I posted a while ago about the video for the track ”White Knuckles”  by group OK GO. Have a look at the making of clip below the video underneath, it just goes to show how many people and how much effort go into realising creative ideas!

(The video that was finally broadcast was ultimately captured on camera in one take after several weeks of rehearsal, the footage of the take starts around 6:30 into the clip)

A few people had asked a while ago about lifecasting, or making a mould then casting it, from someones face, hands or even whole body. They also wanted to see some more pictures of the headcast I did at Bentley Chemicals with Rob Price.

Is Creative Britain in Reverse?

 
As the UK government reviews the national curriculum and design technology’s status as a compulsory school subject, the Design & Technology Association, the James Dyson Foundation and industrial designers Seymourpowell have started a campaign to secure the future of design and technology education.

A key part of the campaign is this movie featuring industry experts and leading designers talking about the importance of design education. Contributors include fashion designer Paul Smith, Jaguar design director Ian Callum, Design Museum director Deyan Sudjic, Design Council chief executive David Kester and the founders of Seymourpowell.

Have a look at www.designcouncil.org.uk for more information and links.

Stunning Advert for Touchwood Phones…

Sunday, June 12th, 2011

A beautiful advert for the Touch Wood SH-08C mobile phone from Japanese mobile phone operator NTT Docomo. The ad features a xylophone rendition of  ”Joy of Man’s Desiring” by JS Bach, played by a wooden ball rolling down a purpose-built xylophone in the middle of a forest…

The ad was developed at Drill Inc Tokyo, by creative director Morihiro Harano and the xylophone was designed and construced by Kenjiro Matsuo at Invisible Designs Lab, Fukuoka.
