Brilliant logo and identity package by Richard Arthur Stewart of Commoner Inc.  The eagle/comb mashup is witty and powerful, and makes me wish I had thought of it. Read More »

VS.

This poster is arcade fan-service in its finest.  We’ve got all the major players here in a head to head, no-holds-barred battle for 8-bit supremacy.  What I find particularly amusing is how the Joust sprites are just way worse than everything else.  What gives, Williams Electronics?

The guys at DKNG, the studio behind this print, have some really exceptional posters under their belt.  There’s even an amazing “making-of” video to accompany their Explosions in the Sky print.

Typefight

Typefight is like Mark Zuckerberg’s Facemash, but for decorative caps.  Every week, designers Ryan Paule and Drew Roper design their own versions of the same character and let the audience decide which one is better.  They’ve even implemented guest fights, pitting pairs of designers against each other in a battle for superior stroke, swash, and spur.

Proximity

Proximity-Double

I’ve shown off some of Michael Freimuth’s work here before, but I recently rediscovered some design work he did for the Chicago art-journal Proximity while delving into the annals of a tumblr account from yesteryear. The logo itself is really sharp; it’s simple, geometric, and bold, which is a holy trinity as far as I’m concerned.  Not to mention it’s vaguely reminiscent of the NFPA hazmat warning stickers that you see in science labs, which gives it extra geek appeal in my books.

Custom Portal Ringtones MK. II

Glados 3

A few years ago, I wrote a tutorial on how to make your own custom GLaDOS style ringtones.  With Portal 2 now upon us, I thought there might be some new test subjects that would be interested in this info. I’ve included the MP3s that I made in the post as well, just to give you an idea of what the results sound like.

Here’s the MP3 for text message and email notification. Enjoy!

Eyjafjallajökull Time Lapse

Submitted by on November 11, 2010 Photography

This video by Sean Stiegemeier is beyond awesome.  Long after everyone forgets the volcano that no one could pronounce, I’ll still be drooling over these slow-pans through barren Nordic landscapes.  Of course, it helps that the natural geography of Iceland is like something out of a Terry Brooks novel turned up to eleven, even without the fissure in the earth spitting up never-ending plumes of sulphur and ash.  You could point your camera at pretty much anything up there and walk away with a cinematic epic.

Yesterday was awesome.  Thanks to everyone who stopped by and let me grab a few pictures of them.  There are a lot to go through, but I’ll try and get a gallery online within a day or two.  Don’t forget to drop me an email (adam@convoke.info) so I can get your names and send you the rest of the pics.

If you weren’t stoked on the re-release under Dark Horse of Rafael Grampa’s Mesmo Delivery, now you certainly are.

Or if you aren’t, I don’t really understand you. You can see image below, no?

Go and read his interview, then buy his book, and spoon with it nightly.

Video from Goeblins, a Parisian animation school. The site is in French but the animations are all so nice.
