Pavement Loop by Alex Varanese

March 3, 2010

These stunning images are part of a just finished 9-piece series by Alex Varanese entitled Pavement Loop. He takes a great deal of his inspiration from the environment around him, in this case the city of San Francisco, with much of his work first rendered in 3d and then re-worked and combined with typographic or vector based elements.

2009 Annual Report by Feltron

February 2, 2010

These intricately detailed graphics are taken from a personal annual report by Feltron, a New York designer with a passion for infographics, whom after every single  meaningful encounter with someone, each day during 2009, asked for them to submit a record of this meeting through an online survey. “From parents to old friends, to people I met for the first time, to my dentist… any time I felt that someone had discerned enough of my personality and activities, they were given a card with a URL and unique number to record their experience.” The finished work is stunning, and available for purchase through his site. More pics after the jump.

2010 Colour Of The Year

December 11, 2009

Pantone have announced on their website that the colour of the year 2010 is/will be PANTONE® 15-5519 Turquoise, which is kind of a bold statement to make in December 2009! “Combining the serene qualities of blue and the invigorating aspects of green, Turquoise inspires thoughts of soothing, tropical waters and a comforting escape from the everyday troubles of the world, while at the same time restoring our sense of wellbeing” – it certainly sounds like a wonderful colour! Still, it will be interesting to gauge it’s actual impact in the coming year. You can read the original article here.
