Studio Myerscough Wayfinding & signage | Cartlidge Levene The Barbican Arts Centre is one of the largest arts, conference and exhibition venues in Europe. Since its opening in 1982 it had suffered from a lack of wayfinding clarity. Cartlidge Levene and Studio Myerscough were commissioned to develop a new wayfinding and signage strategy as part of a major refurbishment of its public spaces to make the foyer navigable and welcoming. Working as part of an integrated team, with architects AHMM, we built on their rationalisation of entrances and realignment of routes to develop a wayfinding strategy that heightens intuitive understanding of the space. Sensitive alterations and additions to the architecture, combined with a bold wayfinding language has created a clear, calm and uncluttered foyer.

FEIXEN: Design by Felix Pfäffli Friedrich Forssman Manual — Slice Slice works with world-renowned industrial designers to create innovative cutting tools for the home and office. Slice engaged us to create a more up-to-date brand mark and flexible system. The identity system needed to be easily applied to multiple packaging forms yet consistently deliver the brand message even in the absence of product and point of purchase materials. Manual approached the design of the logo and packaging in parallel. The angled slice was further employed as a distinctive graphic element across product brochures, screen printed promotional posters, and trade show exhibition design.

Daniel Carlsten Thermochromism A mood ring shown face front. Note the band of color change. Thermochromism is the property of substances to change color due to a change in temperature. Organic materials[edit] Thermochromatic liquid crystals[edit] The two common approaches are based on liquid crystals and leuco dyes. Some liquid crystals are capable of displaying different colors at different temperatures. Some such materials are cholesteryl nonanoate or cyanobiphenyls. Liquid crystals used in dyes and inks often come microencapsulated, in the form of suspension. Liquid crystals are used in applications where the color change has to be accurately defined. Liquid crystals are difficult to work with and require specialized printing equipment. Leuco dyes[edit] Example of a Hypercolor t-shirt. Thermochromic dyes are based on mixtures of leuco dyes with suitable other chemicals, displaying a color change (usually between the colorless leuco form and the colored form) in dependence on temperature.

Swiss Federal Design Awards - Michael Kryenbühl / Ivan Weiss We are all fa­mil­iar with Aki Kau­rismäki's au­then­tic every­day he­roes: the tac­i­turn garbage col­lec­tors, the dream­ing su­per­mar­ket check­out girls, the reclu­sive night watch­men. These melan­choly, soli­tary fig­ures are found not only in Fin­land, but rep­re­sent the uni­ver­sal human being and the (some­times rough and ready) va­garies of life. In their 272-page book Ak­i­lan­dia, cre­ated as a grad­u­ate piece at Lucerne Uni­ver­sity, Michael Kryenbühl and Ivan Weiss com­bine their col­lected im­pres­sions of eleven weeks spent study­ing Kau­rismäki's cin­e­matic world. They have called that world Ak­i­lan­dia and they guide the viewer through the films of the Finnish di­rec­tor. As in a film, the con­tent of Ak­i­lan­dia is con­veyed by the dra­matic struc­ture and se­quenc­ing of the im­ages. The book is made up for the most part of a wide va­ri­ety of vi­sual ma­te­r­ial.
