FEREBEE LANE + CO
Spending this week freelancing at Ferebee Lane here in Greenville. It’s quite an adjustment jumping into the middle of many ongoing projects, but I’m gaining a lot of experience and insight into what goes on in a professional environment. This is my first time even being in an agency-specific environment so getting to work on anything at all is exciting. Can’t wait to see what...
I’ve decided to host my new year-long photojournal on my Flickr, entitled Chapter 22. Follow along if you’d like!
The Makers is a photo project by Jennifer Causey that highlights handmade products made by some of New York’s locals. The project not only highlights the products themselves, but the people behind them, what inspires them, and what they think of the city where they live and work. Really nice photos, check them out.
Check out Anderson University’s first Senior Showcase of Visual Art, Redux! We took on the challenge of creating this publication from scratch at the beginning of the semester and were able to create something really beautiful to show off our talented designers and artists. Huge thanks to the rest of the team for all your hard work on this!
Alvin Diec is a graphic designer living and working in Atlanta, Georgia. One of my favorite works by him is his branding for Birmingham’s A Bryan Photo. It touches very much on the charm and craft of analog photography, and every aspect of the brand reflects that. Check it out along with his other work. Nothing but goodness. Also, I was sold as soon as I saw his National reference on his...
LIFE WITHOUT BEAUTY SCHOOL?
It took some fence-climbing and bobbing and weaving, but I got inside of an abandoned beauty school today. I’ve passed it so many times but I was determined to check it out today. There wasn’t much to see on the lower level, and I couldn’t stay inside very long due to the overwhelming smell of perm fluid. Got a few good ones regardless. **Viewer discretion advised, there are...
OVI TEASER TRAILER SERIES
outliersiceland: We’re hard at work on the film, and are excited to share these teaser trailers featuring the beautifully emotive ‘The Wind Sings’ by soundtrack contributor Goldmund. Enjoy, share, and stay tuned for more previews of the project. Teaser [1 of 3] - View large on Vimeo Teaser [2 of 3] - View large on Vimeo Teaser [3 of 3] - View large on Vimeo Outliers Shop...
Many of us live our lives based on expectations rather than reality. Our minds set standards for the outcomes of different situations and we expect them to be met. Take it a step further and add deeply-seeded, and possibly unrealized, pride to the equation. Finally, top it off with unexpected disappointment when those standards aren’t met and what do you get? A painfully humbling...
And you want to travel with her. And you want to travel blind. And you know...– Leonard Cohen - Suzanne
SENIOR ART SHOW
auvisualarts: Another year in the Art Department is coming to a close. Although it marks the closing of a chapter for many of our talented students, it’s a time of celebration and recognition for all their work and accomplishments during their time at AU. Please join us on April 27 from 6-9 for the Senior Art Show reception. The reception will begin in the Vandiver Gallery from 6-7:30, then we...
Free Dive is a stunning photo series by Kanoa Zimmerman. The simplicity and vast sense of space in these photos gives a strong eerie mood, as well as some tension. Strong work.
Play matchmaker and pair typefaces with the Type Connection Typographic Dating Game. I love the history and specimen breakdowns that are provided when you’re making your pairings. A perfect example of how typefaces have their own personalities and have to be paired carefully with their ‘significant other(s).’
Overthinkers. We read deeply into every action taken and every word spoken. We look at the river and wonder about the undercurrent. We seek meaning even in the meaningless. Some might call this as a curse, but as a designer, I’ve found it to be quite the blessing. The key to successful and visceral work is to consider every opportunity so important that you invest yourself fully, giving it...
Gloryform: A response to a problem, and the best possible response from a...– Frank Chimero
Head over to the site and check out my latest photography series, Formarc. It’s my first-ever exploration of architecture, and I’m really pleased with the work as a whole.
DESIGN IS NOT PROBLEM SOLVING
Design is not problem solving. Because: When you solve a problem you get an answer. There is a certain quality to what an answer is. It’s reproducible, predictable, and by being an answer that means nothing else can be an answer. 3+7=__ answer is 10. It can’t be anything other than 10 because it is completely independent of source. This is an answer. If we gave a design problem to 3 different...
A RESTLESS TRANSPLANT
You might know Foster Huntington’s name from the popular Burning House blog, where people send in photographs of the things they’d grab if their house was on a fire. Aside from curating the site, Foster is living the dream life: road tripping around the west in a VW van, surfing, camping, and photographing his findings and experiences along the way. I’ve always had a great...
“Face is an intelligence-driven supermodernist design studio, based in Monterrey, Mexico whose work range includes design solutions, advertising, editorial projects and custom publishing, corporate identity, web design and brand development.” They do it all, and they do it all well. One thing that really stood out to me was the breakdown of their method. It’s a nice change to...
TUNTO POWERKISS LAMP
The Tunto Powerkiss lamp not only provides plenty of light for a desk or table, but can power your phone using wireless charging technology. It also features touch-sensitive sensors for control of power and light intensity. Proof that you don’t have to sacrifice form for functionality. Beautiful design.
Brand Spirit is a 100 day project where Andrew Miller paints products completely white, rendering their brand completely indistinguishable. It’s really interesting how much our aesthetic opinion on the general form of a product is dictated by branding.
MATTHEW LYONS ILLUSTRATION
Breathtaking illustration work from Matthew Lyons. His cubist-like style is an interesting pairing with mid-century subject matter, and I love the three-dimensional perspective he can achieve with such simple geometric shapes. Make sure to check out his inspiration blog, but make sure to keep a drool rag handy.
HEART IN BLOOM
Spring is a time of transition: the weather gets warmer, the sun shines brighter, the sky is clearer, windows stay open, and smiles are in abundance. Whether you’re moving forward or moving out, it’s a time of growth. This Spring transition is incredibly significant to me personally. My seemingly cold and confused state during Winter has been overtaken by Spring’s grace,...
The newly renovated website is live! New design, new work, new things to check out. So please do!
THE PERFECT STORM
Did some photo work this week for TOWN Magazine Greenville. Make your taste buds happy with this delicious Spring cocktail called “The Perfect Storm.”
Listen To Your Hands.
Wonderfully moody photographs by Alexandre Kurek. “His photographic roots lie in skateboarding. He is a part of the scene since 10 years, which consistently reflects in his motives. Music, street art, fine arts, literature and people are his other interests. His expressive pictures show that photography is his passion.” —Artgallery, Nina sagt I always say it, but the feeling you...
Sound is the colour I know, oh Sound is what keeps me looking for your eyes...– Beirut - East Harlem
DISCONNECTION > ENGAGEMENT
We bet that an Instagram-obsessed friend couldn’t go a week without posting. In shaking hands on it, I knew I wasn’t betting on solid ground—anyone can resist if he’s been dared enough—but I counted on habit to come in like the tide, take over. Instead, I lost. The week closed its doors without a single snap appearing in his Instagram feed. I want to give up something else, he said with an odd...
Frank Chimero’s new website is up and running and, great googly-moogly it is gorgeous. (Yes, I just said googly-moogly) Can anyone say parallax scrolling? Lay your eyes on it yourself, and try to keep the drool inside your mouth.
AN EXTRA DAY
An Extra Day is a creative project that highlights 24 people in central London met on February 29, 2012. Love the photographs. Love the branding. Love the idea. Check it out. Via Kathryn White.
THIS WAS A PHOTO WITH MY EYES
The foreground landscape sped past me like a smeared painting. In the distance, above the tree line, stood two grain silos silhouetted against the low-hanging sun. Its golden rays peered through breaks in the heavy fog that rose from rooftops like steam from boiling water. The light breeze rolled it over the landscape, caressing and hiding its features. Frozen in my mind with the blink of a...
Dank is a beautifully designed independent skateboarding magazine based in Oslo, Norway. Definitely a fresh, clean, and sophisticated take on a skateboarding publication. Check it out.
