Des oiseaux qui jouent de la guitare au Musée des beaux-arts de Montréal

C'est l'impression que donne la nouvelle installation du Musée des beaux-arts de Montréal, dans laquelle un collectif d'oiseaux offre une performance rock en direct. L'insolite dispositif musical met en scène quelque 70 diamants mandarins, originaires d'Australie, qui, en se perchant sur l'une des 10 guitares et des quatre basses électriques branchées à des amplificateurs, produisent des mélodies. Pour apprécier cette mélodie improvisée, les visiteurs sont invités à circuler dans cette volière géante, installée dans le Carré d'art contemporain du musée.

The 2016 U.S. Presidential Candidates’ Logos, Ranked. — organizer sandbox. I’ve long held the ridiculously biased and shamelessly partisan opinion that Republican campaigns are…uh…less than excellent at graphic design.

The 2016 U.S. Presidential Candidates’ Logos, Ranked. — organizer sandbox

I have some theories on why this might be the case, which I will not be sharing. What I will be sharing is my attempt at assessing and ranking the logos of the fourteen (as of June 7, 2015) declared candidates. I have also reviewed all of the candidates’ websites for logo integration and overall design, and oh man do you ever owe me for that. As there are currently ten Republican candidates and only four Democratic candidates, this isn’t exactly a fair fight in terms of “which side is better.” The real takeaway is that bad design is bipartisan. 14. 13. 12. 11. 10. 9. 8. 7. 6.

Earthmojis, emoji-based protest placards, effectively tell dire environmental stories With social media and visual exposure becoming an ever-more-powerful factor in whether news of a protest gets around, it’s surprising there haven’t been more designers lending their skills to better placard communication.

Political Emojis Become Unexpected Tools in Social Unrest

But Naresh Ramchandani, a partner at the design firm Pentagram, decided to boldly step into the political realm, designing and leaving out a set of striking emoji-based placards called Earthmojis for the People’s Climate March in London on March 7th. Amid the hand-scrawled enthusiasm of the hundreds of handmade signs drawn by the masses, the signs managed to use the spare visual language, which originated in its most popular form on iOS devices, to bring attention to a variety of issues.

In a few instances, there were some minor tweaks to the graphics. Each placard has a brightly-colored background to make it stand out against all the cardboard signs.

Designer and Type Tasting founder Sarah Hyndman has published a new book exploring our emotional and subconscious responses to type.

The Type Taster: How fonts influence you

The Type Taster: How fonts influence you uses original and existing research to highlight how type can influence decision-making, evoke memories or affect other senses. It also looks at the individual personalities of different typefaces and what people’s type choices reveal about their personality. The book begins with an introductory section explaining type’s importance, followed by a brief history of key developments in typography from the 1450s to the present day as well as some general rules on use. Most of it, though, deals with how we respond to type through a series of diagrams, quizzes, games and experiments.

Hyndman also cites her own findings on emotional responses to type throughout, gathered through a series of interactive experiments conducted online and in workshops. Watch A Calligrapher Recreate Famous Logos In Mere Seconds. Série gratuita mostra os bastidores da criação de obras gráficas. LIQNYC plays god, turns our solar system into consumable candy LIQNYC has created a series of lollypops made to resemble the surfaces of the different planets in our solar system.

Though space spent the decades between 1990 and 2010 as a sort of “also ran” topic in the public eye, recent events surrounding SpaceX and Mars have spawned several popular space-oriented products. Though planet-based lollypops seems almost obvious as an idea, the process for making them is complex and interesting. Most lollypops are solid colored or randomly colored because that’s the easiest way to make candy, but the LIQNYC team borrowed techniques from candy cane making and salt water taffy to create these reasonably accurate depictions of Earth and her nearest neighbors. Within a certain margin for error in both candymaking and how good our extraterrestrial imaging is, the final product is fairly accurate.

The project aims to reveal just how much more, stretching the limits of what tableware can do. Focusing on ways of making eating a much richer experience, a series of dozens of different designs has been created, inspired by the phenomenon of synesthesia. This is a neurological condition where stimulus to one sense can affect one or more of the other senses. An everyday event, ‘taste’ is created as a combination of more than five senses. The materials in the design currently compose of metal, plastic and ceramics. Design Ah! (デザインあ) introduces kids to design concepts.

Animated Typographic Architecture Is A Design Nerd's Dream

The firm collaborated with illustrator and graphic designer Florian Schommer of Hamburg-based Kjosk Collective to create this series of animated buildings shaped like the letters of their logo (DEEPBLUE). Each building-letter is filled with little Sim-like people running around, and represents a department within the firm, including art direction, copywriting, interaction design, and motion graphics. The animated site is meant to explain to visitors and potential hires how the firm works, in a much more exciting way than most corporations’ "Who We Are" pages do.

This Video Of Fibonacci Sculptures That Look Like They're Moving Will Be The Only Thing You Want To Watch Today — VIDEO.

Prepared to be hypnotized by these stunning Fibonacci zoetrope sculptures, created by John Edmark, an inventor, designer, and artist who currently teaches at Stanford University. These sculptures, created using a 3D printer, are designed to animate when spun while lit by a strobe light or, in the case of this video, when filmed with a very short shutter speed. According to the video’s introduction, Edmark’s “placement of the appendages is determined by the same method nature uses in pine cones and sunflowers… If you count the number of spirals on any of these sculptures you will find that they are always Fibonacci numbers.”
