Print design : LWLies - On the road edition

On the road par Little White Lies, un magazine expérimental à la manière de Jack Kerouac

For their "On the road" untitled issue, creators of independant english magazine Little White Lies decided to get inspiration from Jack Kerouac and his famous book "On the Road". They produced the magazine with the same process as Kerouac wrote his manuscript : on a long single paper scroll, like the old volumens.
The result is a very unusual magazine format, mixing up writing machine text and original illustrations, directly drawn on the same paper scroll and almost in the same time. The "handmade" aspect is very present and recalls some artist's travel sketchbooks. Illustrations are varied and interesting, but the detail which really seduced me is the calligraphed headtitles, very dynamic and contrasting with the structured paragraph of machine typed texts.

Samsara, an audiovisual experience

Samsara, une expérience audiovisuelle unique

You may have notice that the blog's activity has slowed these last weeks and I'm sorry about it, but the launch of my communication studio takes me a lot of time and energy. So I'll try to take advantage of the calm of August to share with you some of my recent discoveries.
It's not already a hot news here in France, but I think that a really great documentary film is about to be launched at the end of the month trough the world. This film, called Samsara, directed by Ron Fricke and produced by Mark Magidson, is the result of 5 years of work through 25 countries. An interactive map, on the film website, shows all the locations with some photographs. Entirely shot in 70mm, the movie is conceived as a kind of guided meditation, a unique audiovisual experience in which only music and images lead the viewer's mind.

Dreamtime, a water alarm clock

Dreamtime, a water-working alarm clock

Dreamtime is an alarm clock designed by Vera Wiedermann, a young designer from Austria. It works in a simple but very innovative way : it uses energy of water and gravity. Like an hourglass, the water drops during your sleep, and a basic mecanism wakes you up when the little tank is empty. A very soft and poetic way to start your day ! The designer precises that the idea behind this project was to let people focus on the sleep, by creating a specific time, a ritual to fill the alarm clock and see how long will be the rest.

Everyware, inventing new interfaces

Everyware, installations interactives

Recreating intelligence, simulating life, modeling real situations have always been objectives in computing history. the Game of Life and the 70's cellular automatons are the most basic examples (in a design point of vue), even if they already contain the most important parameters. With the increase of computing power and the improvement of the interfaces (screens, multi-touch devices or haptic interfaces) the interactive and visual possibilities of these programs become more interesting and allow to develop more fun and artistic applications. The launch of new languages like Processing also help artists and designers to use computing in their works.
It's in this context that the korean creative computing group Everyware creates new kind of interfaces and programs.
