Thanks to Zayne for stumbling across these sculptures by Daniel Firman, in Huh Magazine: ”How can something so huge and heavy appear so weightless? What a fantastic thing to come across as you’re wandering through a huge gallery space. It looks simple and iconic in the white walled gallery and like a piece of history (a moment from another time) in the highly ornate vaulted halls of the Kunsthalle Wien in Vienna.” See lots of other (odd and fun) work on his website.
Thanks to Hui-wen for sharing the fantastic typography work of Jessica Hische. I thought the name sounded familiar, and then I remembered that she created the fabulous wedding invitation idea which we featured on Friday Favourites a few weeks ago. Her other work is stunning too – and I wasn’t aware that she created the type for the titles of Wes Anderson’s Moonrise Kingdom.
Still on the subject of typography, this playful type created from colour-injected bubble wrap caught my eye. I thought it had quite a scientific, or pharmaceutical feel about it. A lovely simple idea created by Spanish studio Lo Siento for Japanese magazine 81, found via Fubiz.
I thought these illustrations using tea leaves were beautiful, and a perfect idea for tea packaging. Andrew Gorkovenko uses the specific type of tea to create a scene depicting the region it came from, for tea brand Trip Tea. The patience required to create these must be phenomenal. One sneeze and it’s all over… Found via Colossal, with more images on Andrew Gorkovenko’s website.
Michael G found this great new ad for Carlton Draught in Australia: “From the brand that brought you the Real Big Beer Ad, comes an old school car chase … without the cars. Love the tunes too.” Found via Autoblog.
