DESIGN • Norvège : les billets de banque les plus cools du monde. La Banque centrale norvégienne a dévoilé le 7 octobre un nouveau billet de banque après un concours ouvert aux créatifs du pays sur le thème de la mer. Parmi les propositions des huit finalistes, on retrouve des billets qui ressemblent à des dessins d'enfants. Au printemps, la Banque centrale norvégienne a lancé un grand concours pour mettre au point les illustrations de ses nouveaux billets de banque. "Sans surprise, étant donné la réputation de la Scandinavie pour le beau design, elles sont très spéciales", rapporte le site d'information Quartz. Ainsi, le recto des nouveaux billets a été conçu par Metric System, un studio de design d'Oslo, qui le décrit comme "ouvert, lumineux et typiquement nordique", rapporte Quartz. Le verso présente un design "joliment pixelisé", poursuit le site. Des propositions (très) surprenantesHuit propositions ont été retenues pour la finale.

By Maria Popova A voyeuristic look at the underbelly of the art-science of typography. From prolific design writer Steven Heller (previously) and collaborator Lita Talarico comes a fine new addition to both the 10 finest books on typography and our favorite peeks inside the notebooks of great creators: Typography Sketchbooks is like a visual window into the minds of the world’s most exciting type designers and, in turn, into the intricate art-science of typography itself — a medium both creative and practical that has to walk the tightrope between centuries-old tradition and bleeding-edge innovation with equal parts grace and agility in an era of changing reading habits and design expectations.

An understanding of content and context is essential, but, typographically speaking — that is, in terms of the letterforms — beauty, however defined, is key. There are two kinds of type maker (though many more kinds of type user, which is another story). Share on Tumblr. Tim Jarosz.

High Resolution Images. Ogilvy Death of the Mouse 2.0. Ogilvy Frankfurt published “Mausetod 2.0″ (Death of the Mouse 2.0), a book designed for art directors, graphic designers, photographers and clients. Each page features an image designed to be a memory hook for an Adobe Photoshop or Indesign keyboard shortcut, making the mouse less necessary. The book is the second in a series dedicated to comfort, increased work efficiency and the complete extermination of the mouse. The book won a Gold award for Design and Imagery at the 2010 Epica Awards. Here’s fourteen samples from the book, each providing a clever (not always PC) play on word association. Credits The Mausetod brochure was designed at Ogilvy Frankfurt by creative director/designer Helmut Meyer, copywriter Lothar Mueller, art director/designer Till Schaffarczyk, graphic designer Michael Helmle, art buyers Christina Hufgard and Caroline Walczok, using photography from Corbis Duesseldorf, account manager Michael Fucks.

Louis Vuitton City Guides 2011. L’invitation au voyage. Fort de sa réputation, Louis Vuitton avait créé la surprise en lançant en 1998 ses fameux City Guides. Les sept fascicules de cette première édition totalisaient quelque mille pages, et mettaient en lumière les grandes villes d’Europe. Pour l’édition 2010, dans la continuité de leur campagne Journeys, la marque de luxe nous invite une nouvelle fois au voyage en accompagnant le lancement de ces guides par une série de vidéos en stop-motion présentant plusieurs grandes villes du monde parmi lesquelles New York, Paris et Berlin. Réalisée par Romain Chassaing, chaque vidéo offre une visite guidée de la ville, d’un point de vue évidemment plus esthétique qu’éthno ou socio.

Les City Guides 2011 seront lancés sous forme papier à partir du 15 octobre prochain. (source Ypsilon2) Like this: J'aime chargement… Beer + taxidermy = packaging innovation. Scottish independent beermaker BrewDog has taken unconventional packaging to a whole new level for its 55% proof The End of History. As well as claiming it to be the most alcoholic beer in the world, BrewDog co-founder James Watt also believes it to be the most expensive. A nattily-attired bottle of the Belgian blond ale will set you back a princely £500. Suggested serving is in a whisky tumbler, as opposed to necking straight from the furry bottle 12 bespoke bottles have been produced. According to your preference you could opt for one of seven dead stoats, four grey squirrels or, for those wanting something a little less common, there's the single hare. Watt suggests the beer is, “An audacious blend of eccentricity, artistry and rebellion. " For ale connoisseurs and the flush of cash, purchases can be made from the BrewDog website.

Materialiste, le Magazine Elégant. LAZERTITS. The Big Picture. The Jedi Path book presentation box. Its silver vault doors sport an embossed image of two moons setting over the rounded edge of a nearby planet and two hands clutching a lightsabre... Press the button on the bottom and, in a wash of blue light and sound effects, the doors slowly open and the book within rises on a platform. Yes, folks it's the packaging for The Jedi Path, a limited edition book, created collaboratively by print production company Imago, publisher becker&mayer! And, of course, Lucasfilm. "The biggest challenge for us was that George Lucas (no relation to CR's Gavin) did not want the opening mechanism to be activated electronically," explains John Hine at Imago.

"The only electronics present are to power the blue lights on the book platform and the sound effects that are generated on opening," he adds. The book itself is no simple production. The book has been available in the US for a few months, but we're told the publishers are finally allowed to talk about it to press in the UK. COMPETITION GIVE AWAY!
