Erik Finsrud, The Norik updates his portfolio with new work and a new blog.
Design is at war with itself. We are taught that design is about finding solutions. But the success of these solutions is judged so narrowly – Did it ooze desire? Did it shift units? – that we find ourselves implicated in problems far greater than the ones we solve.
We invite you to create a flag – free from language and well-worn clichés – that embodies the idea of global citizenship. A symbol that triggers pride and cohesion, whether worn on a backpack, displayed on a door, or flown on a flagpole. A symbol for anyone to declare membership in a growing and vital human cooperative. We invite you to prove that design has a real role to play in the fate of our world.
Deadline for entries is December 1, 2008.
A cool 2D Lamp that thinks inside the box rather than out. Designer: Jeth Koh
By Tom Vincent Creative www.hiimtom.com The poster (top) is the 1st piece in a guerilla marketing campaign I created to pitch an event concept to a Charlotte, NC Coffee Company. Its primary purpose was to get traffic to the micro site (bottom). The micro site had an information collection system, barista training videos, latte art tutorials and a number of other cool little features.
I’ve just made another print for YetiMade (that site will soon be ready, not yet though). I’m really trying to put my love of 1950′s illustrations to the test on this one. Done in illustrator and photoshop. Too bad I don’t have any chalk.
