One of those traditions I did not know about is the tracking of Santa Klaus via NORADS extensive satellite network… so when that gay red man in red takes off, anything can happen as all the eyes in the world are on the presents for the good kids… (history via the BBC)
Hello people! In a fit of video-making yesterday, this introduction for a kitsch exposition (or a 15 minute talk on the subject of Egyptian Kitsch.) Thanks to some advanced animation engineering equippement, and the Drums, the Drums, the Durums, the Drums and yes, the drums.
In a different class, we were asked to write short texts– in German– about a logo. This one was written yesterday, about the logo for the Society of Museums in Brandenburg, from the point of view of the design agency…
" 2005 gestalteten wir das Logo des Museeumsverbandes des Landes Brandenburg.
Wir wollten eine aussagekräftige Marke für die kulturellen Einrichtungen des Landes schaffen, die sich mit der Prävalez von Konsummarken messen kann. Das grosse M für Museen hebt sich präsent von seiner Umgebung ab, signalisiert selbstbewusst, dass Kultur sich als alternative zum Shoppingausflug sieht, was von der Tüte nochmal unterstrichen wird.
Die Tüte erinnert uns auch daran, dass wir Kulturerlebnisse, wie auch den Einkauf, mit nach hause nehmen, unser Leben einer nachhaltigen und schönen Erfahrung bereichert.
This is the last thing I'm going to post this side of the binding on my university workshop, Vollton.
It unites 19 Musicians in one Printed Cover, with the focus being very heavily on the challenge of working with spot colours, unusual bindings and foldings, in addition to the production of a book containing 19 designs created by the participants in the workshop for the musicians, taking up and continuing the tradition of combining music and graphic design.
Below is my sketch, which led to the format and folding of the book, which I will join in printing next week.
And in other printing news, I need a clone right now.
After working on this for the better part of two months, it strikes me as somewhat unfair that I should have to be at work, selling computers, while my printing class gets down to the nitty- gritty bit of print producing things. GRRRR.
However, I do get to admire the handiwork of the entire class!
Work displayed in this post are by and belong to whoever made them!
