Glory Scarfs

These scarfs combine three of my favourite things in life, design, fashion and technology. Inspired by nature, science and the Apocalypse, the Glory Scarfs show a spectacular display of colour, pattern and mathematics.

Each one is a mathematically valid fractal, painstakingly created by entering a series of numbers and equations into a computer, creating a potentially infinite variety of form, colour and detail, whilst bringing the skill and technique of handcraft into the digital age.

Re-branding London

Google London

Absolutely love this… Branding and digital agency Moving Brands has decided to document their pitch for the London re-branding public tender, as, in their own words, ‘we think it’s important that a public brand like this [London] isn’t designed behind closed doors.’ With this they have set up the blog A Brand For London to make public all their development work, and you can get involved as well by submitting your design/ideas here.

Time

I’m a huge admirer of QLOCKTWO, a clock that tells time in words. It has a quadratic matrix of letters, where some of the letters are illuminated and the time is displayed as text in five minute intervals. If you need to tell a more exact time, all you need to do is look in the corner at the illuminated dots.

James Gulliver Hancock

Hancock is a well travelled illustrator, whose work is mainly editorial based but has dabbled in a little animation. Reminds me of the extremely talented and much loved local, Stuart White.

No.Zine

Human Resources regular Patrick Fry got in touch with news about his recently completed project titled No.Zine. It is a self initiated series of zines featuring a collection of young artists, writers, illustrators, photographers and designers. With the idea being that each of the zine’s content is based around the number of its issue. So really it’s a celebration of the power in numbers and how everything around us can relate to them.

Triangulation

Jonathan Puckey creates these interesting and unique delaunay triangulation image vectors using the experimental Scriptographer and Color Averaging plugins for the Adobe Illustrator software. They remind me of the amazing sculptural works of Xavier Veilhan.

Paper Mountains

It’s amazing how the simplest of forms can become something so different with the use of creativity and some clever art direction. A perfect example of this process is a photographic series titled Paper Mountains by New York based photographer Brendan Austin. He shoots crumbled paper in an abstracted, decontextualised way as to create the appearance of mountains. It’s a terrific and beautiful work.
