Sony Ericsson UK: All Tomorrow’s pictures*

30 06 2007

This one has been out there for some time, but I still feel it’s worth posting it.

To celebrate the Institute of Contemporary Arts‘s 60th anniversary, SE and the ICA launched the “All Tomorrow’s pictures” project.

60 UK artists (musicians, directors, actors, …) have contributed. They were asked to capture their vision of tomorrow, with a SE K800i cyber-shotphone. Among those artists are Alison Goldfrapp, director Gurinder Chadha, Mika and Helena Christensen.

In addition a competition was launched that was won by Matthew Gordon 

The pictures were presented at the ICA and here is a few of them:

Superfuture.com: City Guide*

26 06 2007

You might wonder why I am placing another Travel tagged entry today.
Might be because I am looking for a good place for a week of holidays ;o)

superfuture.jpg

Here is superfuture.com a great online guide to the major global metropolitan cities.

Superfuture was created in 1999. It basically consists of personal reviews of the best clubs, art exhibitions, shops, etc., … around with specialized maps. The designer intially created it for friends and business partners coming in to Tokyo to visit him. Now it’s evolved into a great guide for a lot of the world’s greatest metropolitans.
It’s worth taking a look!

Here is an interesting series of travel guides that I found on CoolHunting.com. They are called “Luxe“. Haven’t quite found out wether the content is good, but from what I understand they are written by people who live in the respective city and the offer regular online updates to the published version.

The core content is “cool” places for food, shopping, arts and hanging out.

Sounds really promising!

Cannes Cyberlions: First Look*

24 06 2007

As most or at least some of you out there I am currently scanning through the Cannes winners in the different categories. I’ve already posted one of the print winners with “Tide 2x” and there is more to come.

Just had a quick glance at the Cyberlions  and here is three sites that I really liked…

GOT MILK – GETTHEGLASS.COM (GOLD

 02173.jpg

Synopsis: Gettheglass.com continues the fantastical story of the Adachis, a family suffering from ailments related to their lack of milk. On the site, viewers play a board game in which they help the Adachi family get a glass of hard to reach milk.

 

ABSOLUTE VODKA – ABSOLUTE LOMO (BRONZE)

01512.jpg

Synopsis: Together with the Lomographic Society, Absolute developed ABSOLUT LOMO. The first element was building a gallery in Stockholm and track that with a time laps camera.  ABSOLUT LOMO was then extended into a print campaign, dedicated to 6 Lomo artists. Finally users were encouraged to post their own Lomo shots interpreting the ABSOLUT Brand.

I personaly like this one for I am a big LOMO fan!

Finally digital work from a graphic designer from Singapore…

Great way to promote your own work!!

Most probably you will see some more Cannes related stuff on ocean of knowledge in the next days..

 

P.S. Here is one more that at least made the cyber shortlist: www.thecmons.com .
Just sad that it didn’t win anything and didn’t make it in to the Titanium ;o)

adidas Japan: Vertical Soccer Billboard*

24 06 2007

This is how you get people’s attention in one of the most cluttered advertising spaces in the world, Tokyo/Japan.

…and I specifically like the fact that it’s totally “analog” and not a bit digital ;o)

Kind of reminds me of the “Matrix Ping-Pong” clip…
