We get quite excited about the work of Raw Colour, who seem to consistently deliver fantastic inspiring work. Daniera ter Haar and Christoph Brach have worked on a series of projects and collaborations from their studio in Eindhoven, making amazing work around the subject of colour, and you may remember we mentioned their vegetable pigment project in a previous Friday Favourites.
This project was part of the Make a Forest campaign, and focused around expressing the nature of trees as a constantly changing moving object. The results are really beautiful and evocative. It was shown as part of Dutch Design Week 2011. Check out the video animation here too. Thanks to Iona for sharing this one.
Not Another Bill is a lovely idea, which is basically a subscription-based service for receiving better things in the post. You sign up for £15 a month, and they send you something new every month, from a variety of brands, designers and even things from markets and fairs. It’s a great way of discovering new things, and getting inspired, but also giving yourself a little treat. There is a beautiful design element to the examples on the website, and also the site itself. Present examples are shown in the images above and below and you can find more here. Thanks to Vicky for sharing this one.
This work was created using a Bic pen, by illustrator (and friend of our own Will Hodgess) Joe Gartell, and it has been picked up by the brand for their Bic Creativity campaign on Facebook. Using artists and illustrators’ work as examples of how a simple biro can be used in creative ways (as opposed for boring everyday use), is a smart move for a brand to communicate creativity. More examples here.
Dan and Katie met Addie Chinn, editor of The Boilermaker, a self confessed “London-centric journal dedicated to the style-savvy drinking world” at an LS:N Global event last night hosted by The Future Laboratory. He was an interesting chap with plenty of stories, but they were particularly impressed with his charming ‘business cards’ – branded labels attached to tiny bottles of hand-blended spirit curiosities.
