There are not a lot of articles about sound design on the websites I'm following, even if it plays a great part into motion design videos. Not really music, but not only sound effects, sound design allows to convey an identity, an emotion, a universe that completes the pictures. Let's have a deeper look into this field with a little interview of Jochen Mader, a german sound designer working in Hamburg through the identity Audionerve
Laure Kasiers is a textile designer located in Brussels, Belgium. After her studies at La Cambre, she decided to work into the furnishing field, in which she has an approach based on materials and sensitive relationships bringing comfort and warmth.
She specialized more precisely into rugs creation, creating unique and original works. Her creations are design pieces, as well as could be a chair or a desk.
Her portfolio shows a great variety of creations, and the photographs in itselves could be an inspiration source. I really like the "samples" category of her website, in which you can find very beautiful textile pictures.

Donn Koh is an industrial designer from Singapore. His experiences led him to work with a lot of prestigious companies, and to found his own studio in 2010 with 4 other (very talented too) designers.
His Behance portfolio is one of the most interesting I've seen since a long time. There are very varied and innovative projects, but the most interesting are the details of the creative process of the designer. Actually, before drawing the first sketch, he works a lot to define very precisely the original need. What is the use of the product ? What kind of use scenario can we imagine ? What are the problems with similar products ? This approach, very user centered, produces stunning, original and innovative solutions.
In my point of vue, this way to conceve a design project should be consistently employed, whatever the design discipline is (graphic design, product design, space design...), and especially in a multimedia design, with a lot of varied user interactions.
But let's stop digressing and let's lloking at some pictures from Donn Koh's portfolio, which I suggest you to visit.
I wrote an article few months ago about Desillusion, a very beautiful french magazine dedicated to surf cultures (written in both french and english). Each time I open a new issue it's a great surprise for me to read the articles and to watch the nice graphic design, the great photographs and the magazine in itself (lot of different papers, original shapes...).
For the next issue the team had a great idea : to create the issue on the road, in a 1977 Chevrolet all over the West coast of France. Named "Desillusion Parano" in reference to "Las Vegas Parano", this next issue should be full of great encounters and nice pictures. Lucas, of the Desillusion team, sent me some of the first pictures of the trip, and you can discover it in the rest of this post, with a first video.
