Caribbean Cruising – Haiti & Jamaica | Royal Caribbean

It’s not often that you can claim to have woken up in a different country four days in a row but that’s exactly what happened when Adam and I took to the seas and embarked on our first full length cruise, courtesy of Royal Caribbean. A quick plane ride (please note the sarcasm as this plane […]

posted by on 25/06/2012

Everybody knows what a great performer Michael was and there’s no need to go on about how dope his music is because we already know this. All that is needed on this day is a simple gesture to say that we still remember and appreciate greatness. Timeless music is key for all those artists out there, remember this!! Anywho pop over to the side and listen to a classic Michael track. Have a great day people.

A History Of The Title Sequence

posted by on 25/06/2012

A History of The Title Sequence’ is project created by Jurjen Versteeg a Dutch designer. The short film was submitted as his 2011 graduation project and went on to win an award at the Vimeo Awards this year in the ‘Motion graphics’ category. The short film briefs the viewer on the history of title sequences by cleverly incorporating the names of designers who revolutionized this element of film. Each of these designers names are spruced up with characteristics from famous titles they designed. I have a thing for motion graphics so I was bound to like this anyway… but it is a very cool concept that’s been perfectly executed!

Instaglasses

You know when people just do to much, well whoever came up with this concept is the has time on their hands. Don’t get me wrong the idea of glasses that came take pictures and edit photo’s using filters seems like a pretty dope thing but come on this techonology thing is just getting a lil out of control dontcha think? Who really needs glasses that do that. I simply want sunglasses to block out the sun! I want these glasses in particular (see here). I digress, this concept is the brain child of German art director/designer Markus Gerke. Would you want a pair of Instaglasses?

Alex Stoddard's Self Portraits

Wowsers. What’s with all these youngsters doing self-portrait 365s? I might have to start doing one – my LDN.365 certainly helped me develop my skills. I h’actually probably wouldn’t be able to take photographs of myself like Alex – just don’t like being in front of the camera. He’s mastered the art at the age of 18 years old, if you haven’t seen his 365 photographs click here for the full set on Flickr. If not hop on after the cut to see some of my favourites. This kid is going to be HUGE – pretty sure he’ll be shooting editorials for Condé Nast magazines sooner rather than later. Remember the name.

Project Hope Alliance – My Life

posted by on 23/06/2012

So captivating, although this is an awareness campaign for homeless children in California – I just had to share the visuals and the way Pigeon Road have chosen to convey the message. The visuals are nothing short of amazing, however what really sets it off is the child’s monologue – so moving. Despite all the hardships Mark (the kid) has in his life, he’s still got positive outlook on life. The kid has a good on head on his shoulders, better than most people I know and I’m 23! Hop on after the cut to watch the visuals for Project Home Alliance. You may or may not cry.

The World of Prints

posted by on 23/06/2012

Every season has a bit of a trademark, Winter means chunky knits, Spring means floral and pastels, therefore Summer definitely means prints! Whilst researching this, I naively underestimated the range of prints out there, it was like opening a fashion Pandora’s box, (Pandora’s wardrobe maybe?). More on the reverse.
