The work of Tim Wong

TheeBlog-TimWong

Photographers have always acknowledge multiple forms of inspiration and influences that could be easily spotted in their work. Tim Wong is a Hong Kong based Fashion Photographer whose strong cinematic influences are easily palpable through his rich and eccentric sets and ’stories’. His photos are not only rich in color and composition, but also offer a wide variety of interpretations, making them even more interesting…

HEAT Alley

TheeBlog-HeatAlley

I realized I have not posted any environmental or interior design lately so decided to do it today. And while looking through some archives, I found an old bookmark about the Miami HEAT Gatorade Championship Alley. Now I know you’re thinking… that was 2006! But hey! We won a Championship. The entire alley and locker room area was designed to commemorate the team’s achievement and remind them how sweet it was to be champs. The project was done by local agency Southern Brand Collective and later sponsored by Gatorade. I know it might not look like this anymore being that the photos are a bit old, but it is still a nice project and it is always good to reminisce.

The Plastic Slipper

TheeBlog-JosephMarconi
I personally love the versatility and beauty of film when a Photographer is involved. They have that extra little something which some people like to call ‘eye’, (I simply call it ‘badass talent’) that has the ability to visually sparkle-up stories. This is the case of Photographer and Director Joseph Marconi. His project ‘The Plastic Slipper’ is a brief story about a woman constructing an empty and plastic relationship. You might have seen/heard that before, but the beauty and stunning quality of this video, is what’s gonna make you go hmmm…

The Small Stakes

TheeBlog-JasonMunn
As a designer I happily admit that I am a sucker for beautiful posters. And I know deep down, we all are. Remember those posters you had hanging in your room as a teenager?

Well, if you enjoy posters as much as I do, you’re going to LOVE today’s post featuring the amazing and inspiring work of Oakland based Jason Munn! Jason’s work is provoking, clever, clean, did I mention inspiring?… in short, it is simply beautiful! Check out some of my favorite posters after the jump!

The Man Who Walked Around The World

TheeBlog-JohnnieWalker
By now, we all know the huge success of those clever and witty Old Spice ads and it’s safe to say that Isaiah Mustafa -yes, the talent- was a crucial factor to this phenomenon. Casting the right actor/spokesman has proven to be as important as the ad itself. I recently discovered an ad spot for Johnnie Walker called ‘The Man Who Walked Around The World’ and I must say, I was blown away by the skillful and impeccable performance by the talented Robert Carlyle. There are no crazy special effects or shots, just a simple and nostalgic narrative walk through the Scottish highlands – which by the way was also done in one shot!

TheeBlog-BrunoDayan

First Friday of 2011! And as you’re at work planning your crazy weekend full of debauchery, I thought it would befitting to give you some incredibly sexy and glamorous eye candy courtesy of Paris based fashion photographer Bruno Dayan. Bruno’s work features a strong and stunning combination of beautiful lighting and sensuality that characterize his work and big names like Louis Vuitton, Moschino and Yves Saint Laurent seem to love also. Now, I gotta warn you that some of these photos might be a little NSFW, but if you do check them and get caught, simply remind your boss you did it for the love of art!

Starbucks New Logo

TheeBlog-Starbucks
Starbucks announced they will be launching a new logo to commemorate their 40th Anniversary. Yes, 40 years! The new logo/icon/mark or whatever you want to call it, focuses on the famous brand’s mermaid by removing all complimentary type. Does it work? I am not sure yet, I guess I’ll have to see more than a cup in order to give an opinion or judge it. Wonder if hardcore Starbuckers end up hating it and killing it like those Tropicana freaks ;) I keed!
