Trash turned into fantastic creatures.

Artist Brandon Jan Blommaert, has created creatures out of trash in his project Eco Station and sets them against epic landscapes, making them the appearance of giant aliens exploring a new world.

the PS3 Rebranding.

Sony announced the PS3 Slim last night, and with that, a rebranding of the PS3 logo. Gone is the Spiderman type, and in is the aesthetically curvy, pleasing PS2 inspired logo.

Update: Earth Pulse Vibrations – the Earth Edition

Earth Pulse Vibrations – Sky

Some more experiments, some aspects of the type will change after today. Specifically in “Earth”. I’ll be posting updates and my progress on this project more frequently from now on.

The Eco Zoo.

The Eco Zoo is a 3D story pop-up website (if thats how you can label it) that deals with environmental issues, Flash is integrated into the website efficiently and creatively and is not used for just “show”. Personally, I’m not a huge fan of Flash and I would rather designing and looking at HTML only websites. The Eco Zoo is a very experimental site and I doubt you’ll find many websites like it, you can play around with virtually anything, rotating the world in any direction you choose. Visit it, play around with it, it’ll make your day a whole lot better.

the three.

To pick three of my own favorite designs is a difficult choice to make, not because I have a lot of favorites, but quite the opposite. I’m a pretty harsh critic when it comes to my own creations, this is even true with my photography, so picking three for this post was quite difficult. My first choice was the lowercase “h” I created for my font (H is for Hoax), my favorite part of the h is the details, specifically the ascender and head serif, I’d like to believe that we’re seeing “inside”, like an x-ray.

The second design I chose to show is a poster design that I’m still working on, the title (a work in progress) is “Fall of Reach”, its a tribute to the videogame Halo. I like the simplicity of it and the focus on the center of the poster, it could possibly make the viewer contemplate what they’re looking at and that’s usually a good thing.

The third and final design is also a poster, done for a course in university, we had various choices of posters to design, I chose to create a fictional movie poster based on Year Zero, the Nine Inch Nails album. I had decided from the start to take my own photo for the background and I think that’s why I have a soft spot for this poster.
