I love work using type. I really love this work.
Bela Borsodi is an amazing visual artist, who creates surreal and beautiful images using familiar objects. Here he is creating an alphabet still-life with everyday objects, people, and clothing, he has taken font design to another level. Created for WAD Magazine’s ‘Dictionary’ issue, they are strong, bold and visually interesting – each image has so much going on, each time you look at them, you see something new and unexpected.
Check out more of his work, here.
“The film was made in collaboration with The Scratch Perverts, Foreign Beggars, Shlomo and Will Clarke with sound design by Will Cohen. Post production by The Mill London.” View all the credits on the site.
Love it! Here’s what Chris Cairns says about it….
“This one’s for my Dad…Kingdom of the unreal but also a higher state of being, ultimately free of the limitations of the material world through the agency of science, technology, and imagination.”
Ralston & Bau , a very progressive design studio [based in Norway], recently hosted a ‘Redesign Summer Camp’. Using inspiring objects of FRETEX [Salvation Army] and coached by a professional design team from Ralston & Bau, participants learned skills, during the 4 day workshop, to re-design old objects to create new designs. The result is a unique collection of lights, candleholders and cake plates to name a few, all for sale in the Transplant shop.
I love this idea. A design firm engaging with the community in new ways.

“Concave Scream’s style is melancholic yet hopeful. Musically, the band believes in moving forward and not stagnating. Therefore, every album sounds distinctly different. The band has just completed recording their 5th album; a self financed 9-track instrumental titled Soundtrack for a Book.”
When I first came across this site i wasn’t quite sure what it was. But it got my attention.
Concave Scream is an independent band from Singapore that has been together for about 15 years. ‘Soundtrack For a Book‘, their latest project is hypnotizing and unique.
They re-use old classic books as a CD cases, and from the image above, it seems as though they leave the book intact. Not just the cover.
Titles range from Heidi, to Call of the Wild and The Secret Garden, and they can be purchased on their site.
RIP! A Remix Manifesto is an open-source documentary film that looks deeply into the ‘illegal’ activity that is music sharing. The Remix Culture. The Culture Jammers. Technically the film itself is breaking copyright laws by even telling us about it, showing us examples…
“Filmmaker Brett Gaylor explores issues of copyright in the information age, mashing up the media landscape of the 20th century and shattering the wall between users and producers. The film’s central protagonist is Girl Talk, a mash-up musician topping the charts with his sample-based songs. But is Girl Talk a paragon of people power or the Pied Piper of piracy? “
You decide. The entire film is available for one week only to view online. After that, you can purchase at Disinformation.
An interesting look at the re-mix culture and all its implications. A really great film.
