Die Rakete is one of the top-venues for electronic dance music in Germany. The promotional material created by Unfun acted as my gateway drug to their work. The posters are weird and colourful, and wrong but appropriate. On their site you’ll find a selection of very good work with a strong focus on typography. These guys know their stuff. Lovely work.
Breakfast New York, a ‘rapid product and prototype company’ who you might know from this other really cool project, made something new. For Forever 21 they created a massive 6.400 ‘pixel’ display made entirely from spools of thread. Made to show Instagram pictures hashtaged: #F21ThreadScreen.
Yesterday I bought the (purple and yellow!) vinyl release of Tame Impala’s new album ‘Currents’. If you enjoy good music and a good album cover, this is one to buy. The cover was created by Robert Beatty, an artist and musician from Lexington, Kentucky. His portfolio is a trip through brilliantly colourful and psychedelic work with a nostalgic feel. His Toilet Paper Cosmos Tumblr is worth following, too.
One of the greatest and most beautiful PS3 games ever made has now been re-released for the PS4. Journey is an interactive tale, an anonymous online adventure to experience a person’s life passage and their intersections with other’s. It features stunning visuals, haunting music, and an unique online gameplay.
Ten Dollar Fonts is a type foundry by a selection of international designers. Now rebranded to The Designers Foundry. To celebrate they made a sampler with their collection of fonts. New website with nifty (open)typetester and design by Wade Jeffree who is also responsible for the Hardy typeface.
The warm and colourful illustrations of Owen Gatley made my day when I first bumped into them. Lots of great travel-themed work can be found on his portfolio. Some of my favourites are the one for German Wings magazine, his take on Brisbane Airport or the one with the flying piñata for An Interesting Day.
