untitled Spring Summer 2013 is grounded in a renewed sense of the importance of what’s real, what’s now and its potential. It’s a season that invites you to consider different realities and explore contemporary cultures, lifestyles, science and technology to create new visual forms. How do you make this real? How do you even answer the question "what is desirable"? WonderLab creates a pathway through the jungle of modern science and technology. The Story of Now looks at everything that makes reality today: the new and the not so new, the jarringly ugly and the achingly beautiful. Idiomatic celebrates the uniqueness of regional cultures and of the communities that shape them.

Festival Brazil - Southbank Centre Festival Brazil is a contemporary snapshot of a nation’s diverse culture in a vibrant growing economy and with some fierce social problems. The Festival reflects what the country is thinking and talking about today. A range of debates, talks, performances, exhibitions and installations by artists and leading cultural and political figures gives a sense of a nation that has moved from despair to hope in 20 years. Creative thinkers from Brazil and the UK also offer perspectives on Brazil’s global role in the 21st century and the way that culture can help shape civic society. The summer at Southbank Centre conjures up the joyful outdoor life that Brazilians revel in, as aspects of the site are transformed into places for performance and celebration. The Brazilian community in London have been crucial to the planning of the Festival and we’d like to thank them. We hope you enjoy it.

Futuro do Presente / Cuidado! O mundo está sendo hackeado. O portal WGSN, líder mundial em pesquisa e análise de tendências, divulgou na última edição do SPFW, as macrotendências para o outono/inverno 2013/2014. Trata-se de criar funções que vão além da finalidade original do objeto. Ou seja hackeá-lo, interferindo na sua forma ou funcionalidade. E também de consertar objetos de maneira criativa, customizando-os. A macrotendência surgiu do OpenHacking, um comportamento que nasceu na cultura digital e consiste no compartilhamento de informações na rede com o objetivo de mudar tudo para melhor numa escala global. A "Geração Hack-tivate", como se refere o WGSN aos jovens nascidos a partir da segunda metade da década de 1980, não se satisfaz mais em adquirir a tecnologia, quer também participar de seu processo criativo. O movimento Hack-tivate ao inspirar o "Do It Yourself" e o reaproveitamento de objetos que seriam lixo por se tornarem obsoletos em relação à sua função original, também traz um conceito de sustentabilidade.

Brand identity style guides This is great! The University of Connecticut has a nice one designed by Peter Good. Web and link to PDF version. Peter did a great job of differentiating the three identities a university typically has. – The academic and marketing identity (what most would think of as the main identity). – The athletics or mascot identity. UConn has a pretty simple color palette but, many academic systems also include extra Pantone colors to be used for marketing or just for the presidential or university seal (gold, etc.). Stanford University just redid their system too! I also like Vanderbilt University’s. Fashion Trendsetter

Cherry Blog L_cio preparou as trilhas dos vídeos WGSN Convidamos o produtor musical e amigo Laércio para produzir as trilhas dos vídeos sobre as macro tendências identificadas pela WGSN. Para mergulhar nos conceitos, Laércio leu as referências para depois “escutar” o que viu. Na trilha de Neutralidade Radical, o silêncio foi um ponto chave, já que uma das referências é um mp3 sem áudio. Na trilha da tendência Eco Hedonismo, Laércio contou com a ajuda de sua mulher, DJ, Karine Rossi. Já o intenso mix cultural proposto pela tendência Hyper Cultura é, para ele, um caminho sem volta que deve ser explorado e conhecido. Laércio possui um projeto com o artista Bmind onde trabalha cantos de umbanda, passagens bíblicas e etnicidade. Hoje ele também mantêm um projeto de live PA (performance appearance) e participa de um coletivo de produtores de música eletrônica, o Under_line.

BRAZIL & the EU Brazil and the European Union share a longstanding relationship based on strong cultural and historical ties, a common heritage which contributed in time to strengthen their economic and political relations. More than five decades of close cooperation Brazil has been one of the first countries with whom the EU has established diplomatic relations, starting their first common efforts back in 1960 with the exchange of formal diplomatic missions. Since 2007, when the EU recognized Brazil as one of its main global interlocutors by establishing a formal the EU-Brazil Strategic Partnership, the EU and Brazil are also strategic partners, strengthening co-operation and developing a deeper dialogue. Yearly Summits have been held since 2007, focusing on key global challenges such as climate change, the international financial crisis as well as the analysis of the respective regional situations.
