HOME — Motion + Design Jigyasa is an interactive installation that incorporates augmented reality to explore the notions of curiosity and discovery and encourages participants to look beyond what they see at the surface. The piece is structured like a planet, which is peppered with quirky characters and various flora and fauna. The participants have to explore various regions of Jigyasa to see what each character reveals about itself and discover what hidden surprises lay buried amongst the trees. It’s a playful piece that helps create a sense of community as everyone participates in a collective quest while individually being able to explore different areas of the same planet. It also attempts to recreate a childlike desire to interact with fantastical creatures in an imaginary world and see a painting come to life.

Tom Froese — BC Liquor Created and produced by Everlovin’ Press and myself, Greetings From Canada is a limited edition run of fine letterpress postcards featuring the work of 10 Canadian artists, illustrators and designers. The first project of its kind in the country, it aims to elevate the art of letterpress printing while showcasing a selection of some of the best creative talent Canada has to offer. I designed the packaging and branding for the project, and also was arm-twitsted by Vince into designing one of the cards (the dogsled one). It's humbling to be featured among such amazingly talented illustrators! For more info and to purchase a card or the whole set, visit greetingsfrom.ca. Featured on Poppytalk and Applied Arts.
SomeOne This is what we’re good at... Brand Strategy There’s a lot of waffle spoken about strategy. We prefer to call it a plan. DOMO-A Inspiration blog gdcdesign: Diamond Dogs, Officina post industriale1984—1987 NapoliToty RuggieriDiamond Dogs, Officina post industriale,1984—1987 Napoli, probes the flooded imagery of Italian underground, talking about Naples and specifically about a unique and symbolic place: the Diamond Dogs.The volume reproduces, for the first time, the complete archive of Neapolitan photographer Toty Ruggeri who followed the local stage in his activities from 1984 to 1987. The author’s visual language doesn’t leave room for any photographic formalism and leads us in the first person in the artistic community of Naples; the DD becomes a symbol, a little volumetric space, in which the human presence, the gestures, the look, are trenchant signs of the change that was happening in those years.
Conor Harrington ‘A Whole lot of Trouble for a Little bit of Win’ is a new body of work I’ve been concentrating on over the summer. It’s based on my 2nd big photo shoot. Two of the paintings are currently on show at the Lazarides Bedlam exhibition, I’ll have 1 more big piece at the Rathbone later this month and finally I’ll be having a show of drawings and studies at The Outsiders early next year. Hip hop nerds among you might recognize the title from a recent El P track and I thought it was the perfect sentiment to sum up the ideas in my work over the last few years. Big thanks to Joao Retorta for the behind the scenes film above, Alex De Souza and of course to photographer Eoghan Brennan and models Jaffar, Alan, Louis and Cody. Fight Club – The Mess We Make.

Flamingo Magazine: The Future Craft Issue A couple of weeks ago I received a copy of Flamingo Magazine: The Future Craft Issue.

Investigating alternative lifestyles, we believe that creativity, community and grassroots culture are the most fascinating things in life.’ Apart from the subject matter, which is well written and concise, what I immediately liked about the magazine was it’s size, print quality, layout and the diverse spread of it’s content.
