CYMATICS by Nigel Stanford

Cymatics is the study of visible sound co-vibration, a subset of modal phenomena. Typically the surface of a plate, diaphragm, or membrane is vibrated, and regions of maximum and minimum displacement are made visible in a thin coating of particles, paste, or liquid. Yes, that statement may sound a little confusing and even boring. So, what if instead of reading about it, we are able to witness and enjoy these studies? Nigel Stanford decided to combine music with real and elaborate experiments. The result… a lovely and hypnotizing video to prove that science is also badass!

Super Flemish by Sacha Goldberger

TheeBlog-SuperFlemish You know well I am a sucker for personal or experimental projects. And this new series by french photographer Sacha Goldberger is definitely one to be shared. Super Flemish is a photo series featuring many of our favorite heroes, ranging from Star Wars to Batman, Superman, and Iron Man, in a brilliant and unique way – 16th Century portrait style to be specific. What really blew my mind though, is the fact that the portraits use real costumes, created for this series. Yes, that’s a LOT of work! Check out this great collection and Sacha’s site for more great photography.

TheeBlog Q&A Sessions: Raul Alejandro

TheeBlog_RaulAlejandro-Draw_ul It is no secret that I am a huge Type and Lettering geek. And as such, I make a point to always follow or connect with artists I admire and whose work continually inspire me. Raul Alejandro, also known as Draw_ul online is one of these artists, and since I’ve known him for a while, I invited him for a fun interview I want to share today. I’ve been connected with Raul via Instagram for a couple of years, and we’ve always exchanged messages or emails about his work, inspiration, and this interview as I’ve always wanted to share his work, his story and his impressive evolution as a lettering artist. If you are a Type geek like us, and even if you’re not, I am sure you will enjoy this interview and fall in love with his work. Enjoy!

OK Go – I Won’t Let You Down

TheeBlog-OKGO_IwontLetYouDown Throughout my career, I’ve been fortunate to work on different fields, mediums, and for great brands I admire. But, if you ask me what’s the one thing I have not done yet and that is definitely part of my bucket list, I would say - without hesitation - a music video. Music videos have been an important inspiration source for many years, think Michael Jackson, Guns N’ Roses, Hype Williams’ hip hop videos, and the list goes on. OK Go is a band that has been killing it lately through amazing creative direction and impressive executions. Their latest video, shot in Japan is another example of their vision and commitment to continuously raise the bar, try new things and deliver great visual products.

HBO: Banksy Does New York

TheeBlog_HBO-banksy I had the chance to catch an early showing of HBO’s documentary on Banksy’s New York 2013 residency over the weekend and I wanted to share it in case you were not aware of it (premieres November 17th). The film, produced entirely from user-generated content, from YouTube videos, Instagram photos, New Yorkers and Banksy hunters alike, documents the 31 days the artist spent in NYC and the different pieces he delivered around the boroughs (some still on sale).

Impossible Magnets

TheeBlog-ImpossibleMagnets We all love to travel. And from each new place we visit, we always bring home something to remind us of it.

That was the challenge for this great project by Martín Feijoó, in collaboration with Miguel Sousa, and Sara Enriquez. The result, a beautiful collection of fictional animated magnets featuring different books, movies, cartoons and video games. Check them out (and buy your favorite) after the jump!
