Beautiful. Experimental artist Fabian Oefner has created a storm of coloured neon paints hitting the new Farrari California T sports car at over 150mph to emulate it’s speed. Love neon. Farrari’s are pretty nice too.
French “transmedia installation designer” Miguel Chevalier turned the Moroccan cathedral Sacré Coeur into a shimmering spectacle of lights and responsive surfaces with his latest project, “Magic Carpets”.
Beautiful. As always IKEA have produced a delightful new campaign. Scenes of dark forest “artificially illuminated in an intricate rhythm of dancing lights.” Very atmospheric and inviting.
“Peter Wright, IKEA UK and Ireland Marketing Manager, said, ‘We’re curious about the everyday problems people face, and find that the little things can actually make a big difference. The new creative platform ‘The Wonderful Everyday’ takes our strategy one step further, not only do we offer ideas and products for a better life at home, but we recognise and celebrate those everyday moments.'” – http://www.motherlondon.com
The Wonderful Everyday campaign was developed at Mother London by creative directors Tim McNaughton and Freddy Mandy, creatives Rich Tahmasebi and Pilar Santos, and agency producer Nicky Barnes.

If anyone wants to know where these images are from, there mostly from Tumblr, which I can link you to on request.
This music video is class. One of my favorite design studios BL:ND, has come together with Gap to promote their colorful spring and summer collections. Directed by Chris Do (founder & executive producer of Blind), a music video for Danish post-punk duo Sune Rose Wagner and Sharin Foo, aka The Raveonettes for their ep ‘Sound of Color’. “The (Blind) team executed an edgy and elegant exploration of the contradictory forces that black and white represent.” – Blind…. Couldn’t have put it better myself! If you want the whole spiel then just check out their site here. Brilliant.
This video reminds me of one of my first posts on my blog. It’s a Russian short animated film made in 1975 that I used to watch as a child. Worth a watch just for the technique! – The Hedgehog in the Fog
I came across these in a trendy little market in Brooklyn a few months ago. Subway system maps of huge cities all over the world, designed with the most minimalist approach. I can’t seem to find much info on the creators of these pieces. Only that there’s a graphic designer named Cayla and an engineer named John. They have a site lineposters.com and a shop where you can buy the posters or t-shirts on etsy. Mysterious folk, but nice work.
I keep coming across these guys and just have to spread the word! Lucie Thomas & Thibault Zimmermann are a creative duo based in Nancy, France. Their studio ‘Zim & Zou‘ explores the areas of paper sculpture, installations, graphic design and illustration. Their work is absolutely flawless, vibrant and beautiful.
