the Scared is scared

Gondry is at it again

The trailer for Michael Gondry’s latest film Mood Indigo is making the rounds and it looks superb.

Of note: Some of the cars from the film were spotted last fall in Paris during the filming and they’re fantastic. See them all at Surface To Air.

Image dump 151

In cleaning out old files I came across a mountain of great images. They are in no particular order and have no links to their origins (sorry). So I will be posting 100 at a time. 151 this time. Enjoy.

Ducati Monster MS4R by Paolo Tesio

Great transformation.



This is the Ducati Monster MS4R, a redesigned ’93 S4R owned by Italian automotive designer Paolo Tesio. Tesio has created a modern looking Monster that can be built with minor structural changes and bolt on body panels. Even though by looking at these images you’d think this Monster has undergone a huge transformation if you place it next to a stock S4R it is evident how little Paolo has actually changed.

Triple Decker Jack White Poster

Great mix of old and new technologies and some really good thinking.

The Triple Decker Poster was created, designed and printed by Matthew Jacobson and Bryce McCloud using techniques from both the 15th AND 21st Centuries. It’s composed of three separate posters that when combined create an all new poster on it’s own… It’s kind of a ‘fourth wall’ inter-dimensional type thing and you’re going to want one, two, or all three of these posters. If you haven’t already, go to the main page now and see how these posters look, and work together.

The Art of Books: Publishers’ Bindings Online 1815–1930

If you love books and book cover design, prepare to get lost for a long, long time at Publishers’ Bindings Online. I learned quite a bit browsing through the galleries. For instance the style known as Eastlake, named after Charles Locke Eastlake (1836-1906) who’s work was the precursor to what later developed to be the Arts and Crafts movement. Also the Art Nouveau and Japonisme galleries are rich with inspiration.

One note: the UI is not always intuitive, to search for all the samples of a given period click the “Search the PBO Database for…” link at the bottom of each gallery.

Michael Freimuth: Glass Shop coffee poster

A coffee shop in Brooklyn’s Crown Heights neighborhood, Glass Shop sought to establish itself by communicating its local, neighborhood commitment as well as its dedication to classically prepared espresso drinks. Catering to a younger demographic in this new and emerging area of the city, it was important for the venture to not appear overly polished or pristine—the antithesis to a Starbucks or conventional chain coffee house. A dual-sided poster distributed guerilla-style throughout all of the New York City boroughs helped launch Glass Shop—and once on the premises, clientele are discretely greeted with collateral, messaging and environmental design that strive to represent the retailer’s perspective and values.
