A new studio to me, KIN design are an interaction studio in the heart of London responsible for the Wallpaper* custom cover project earlier this year. They also created this reactive sound form video for Werkdiscs artist and boss Actress (who released one of my albums of this year in Splazsh)

The Creators Project

A joint partnership between Intel and Vice, The Creators Project is ‘a new network dedicated to the celebration of creativity and culture across media. . .a modern day media channel that we will continually identify and celebrate the work of visionary artists wherever they are.’ Will be interesting to see how this develops, with a great list of ‘creators‘ already online including Mark Ronson, Trevor Jackson and Richie Hawtin.

Ben Olins

Interesting little project from Ben over at Herb Lester Associates. You Are Here maps were created to record and highlight London’s best places to meet. The guys are working on their website and I’ll be back with an update from them soon.

Hedi Slimane

Hedi

Great interview up on Style.com focusing on Hedi Slimane’s thoughts on ‘The Future of Fashion’. If you haven’t seen it by now, check out Hedi’s amazing photographic diary, from which the above image is taken. Pages and pages of beauty.

Creative Control

CC

The brain child of directors Coodie & Chike and media mogul Dame Dash ( formally  a joint partner of the massive Rockafella records with Jay-Z), Creative Control is the supplier of ‘cutting edge online content label based upon the fundamental idea of maintaining creative control over all content and production from programming to advertising’ with coverage of cutting edge fashion, music, and art. They even have a creative gallery space / studio called DD172 where alot of the magic happens. Very interesting project and I can’t wait to see how it progresses.

a_c_a_d

For all you hoarders and collectors out there, illustrator Lisa Congdon has created a lovely little project that will span exactly one year, from January 1, 2010 to December 31, 2010, which on each day she will photograph, draw (and occasionally paint) one collection from her vast array of stuff. been some great vintage treats so far. The last years or so has seen a real boom on these something everyday type projects, great for  getting the creative juices going.

A History of the World

BBC

In 100 objects. The British Museum and the BBC have combined tell humankind’s story through the things we have made, from the Mummy of Hornedjitef to the modern credit card.

A History of the World in 100 Objects started broadcast on BBC Radio 4 weekdays from Monday 18 January, with each of the 100 editions split into three tranches over the course of the year, focusing on a particular object. Check the Radio Times page here for a list of objects 1-99 (with the 100th yet to be selected) and here for a great interactive object gallery from the BBC. Go History!

Svpply

svpply

Svpply is a retail bookmarking and recommendation service, filtered through the collective wishlists of invited members, featuring the full spectrum of retail products, from the exclusive to the wholesale. Its like flicking through a shopping catalogue  when you were a child picking out items that you wished you could have, but except Biker Mice From Mars action figures, it has some tasty fashion and design related items. I love it

Napoleon

Kubrick Napoleon

The greatest movie never made, Tachen have released Stanley Kubricks extensive research, planning, photography and writings for what was to be his biopic of the great French General Napoleon. Representing decades of work by the great cinematic master and expertly designed by M/M Paris, it in essentially 10 small books encased in one large, guilded leather book. Amazing. Personally, as much as I’d like to see an adaptation of Napoleon, I’m not sure if anyone could actually do the project justice, especially given the recent historical adaptation disasters of the last few years (and everyone should remember the last time someone took the reins of a Kubrick project, although it wasn’t that bad).

Paul Smith For Evian

One for our Paul here at Human Resources. Designer Paul Smith is the next in line to produce a new exclusive Evian bottle with his trademark stripes (I have a shirt just like that at home) for sale in specialist eateries and online here. Definitely one for the Paul Smith enthusiasts.

Marque – Update

Marque were commissioned by RMJM to produce the signage and wayfinding for the award-winning North Glasgow College. Interesting use of typography and materials.

One thing though, watch out for the wrath of the prowling, scowling and very bitter Morag M.
