I’ve managed to give my blog a little TLC this weekend with a few minor updates and some tidying up. I know it’s been a couple of months since last updating but I’ve been pretty busy at work and working on more featured content for FormFiftyFive.
The biggest improvement is any content I write for FormFiftyFive should get syndicated here as well. It’s a feature I’ve been wanting to get on with implementing for a while now, so I’m really glad it’s up and running. I’ve already had a bit of play with it and imported a few of my most recent posts courtesy of FFF.
Hopefully there’ll be no more long periods of silence.
A stunningly simple design for a clock from Vadim Kibardin. Reductive design to the most basic elements, Black & White clock is a set of numbers with their own power supply and independent controller. During the day light the the numbers work as black on white but as the light fades, a sensor inverts the clocks display to white on black. Genius. I want one.
I know I know, it’s only October and we’re talking about Christmas but Christmas By Colour (a project we mentioned last year) from RAW are at it again this year. Instead of releasing a poster full of colours signifying various aspects of Christmas, RAW have instead selected the best suggestions from last years poster and are now asking you to vote for your favourites which will then be made up into Christmas cards.
They’re asking for you to choose you’re top three colours from the selected forty with the top twelve then being printed. There’s plenty of festive colours to choose from some of which have been submitted from FFF’s very own contributors.
We’ve been getting a lot of enjoyment out of this well executed project from London based Moving Brands. Living Identity is literally that, a living publication. Take the cover of the book and point it at your webcam and watch as the browser augments reality.
Augmented reality isn’t anything new and we’ve seen it before, but the integration with vimeo, Flickr, RSS feeds and Twitter really pushes this technology to the next level.
