Daily Inspirations no. 141

Advertising is said to be the major moving force of economy today; but what is advertising if not a brilliant combination of visual images and textual message? Thus, advertising has many similarities with the visual design art, including its constituents, such as photography, digital illustration, typography, etc. Among the inspirational works, included in the today’s collection, you will find several samples of advertising projects, where different forms of visual design were employed. Also, we will show you each of those visual arts separately: landscape photography and exceptionally interesting dust photography by Thomas Edwards, cartoon illustrations, digital painting, typography art, etc. As always, a new set of free textures for your designing achievements as well as some new inspiring samples of the industrial design and architectural solutions are also here.

The Sugar Bowl Residence

In an otherwise horizontally oriented house, a two story glazed wall at the main stair provides a singular vertical perspective on the stands of surrounding pines and provides a moment of transition from the heavier base element to the light-filled airy spaces above. On the upper level, a variety of living spaces and the master bedroom suite,each enjoying mountain views, are gathered between the linear roof form and the simple block below. The interior palette of walnut, fir,concrete, and steel strikes a balance between clean, modern spatial expression with the warm, rustic feel of a mountain home.

Perfume Packaging – The Visual Image of Odor

Believe it or not, but many women feel reluctant to throw away empty perfume bottles. “Nonsense!” some will say. Nope, it’s true. The vast majority of them look so beautiful! No wonder, since perfume bottles and their packaging are usually developed as precisely and thoroughly as the perfumes themselves. Multiple talented designers work on creating the exclusive packaging for perfume, because it is in fact not just the glass bottles and hard paper they have to make – they are going to represent us the visual image of the odor inside. In many cases we subconsciously, not even realizing it, choose the perfume taking into account the looks of a vessel and a box it is packaged in. If it wasn’t true, they would not look practically as real art masterpieces!

Artificial Landscapes

This project is based on the concept of artificial generative architecture.Imagine a future where humanity is extinct due to wars and destruction of the ecology but somehow artificial forms of architecture begin to emerge and create a sustainable protected form of architectural matter where the occupant is no one. A way of nature and technology highlighting in a sarcastic way the overutilisation of their resources.

Smiling – Be Careful, It’s Contagious!

As scientists say, there are about 19 different types of smiles… In other words, people smile in different way depending on the particular situation; for example, a smile can be polite, happy, understanding, lenient, etc. Let’s try to check this theory. Have a look at the pictures below and try to distinguish different types of smiles, captured by photographers… Honestly speaking, while compiling this gallery we could not define the particular type of every smile. The only decision we made is that all these smiles are real, not fake. Sincerity, expressed by human lips and enforced by eyes, is impossible to falsify. By the way, it is also a scientific fact that people have the ability to distinguish between real and false smiles intuitively.
