The slogan “think different” and corresponding advertising campaign was created by the agency TBWAChiatDay for Apple in 1997.
This spot is 11 years old, but remains one of the best brandings i´ve seen (They didn´t even had to show a product).
And it´s so cool.

Here is a link to the making of. The best part is one of the creators gushing about this amzing new tool called Photoshop that they used for the ad placements.
You can find a whole lot of interesting different versions here.
And a typography based clip here on youTube.

And this is the (brilliant) text:

Here’s to the crazy ones.
The misfits.
The rebels.
The troublemakers.
The round pegs in the square holes.
The ones who see things differently.
They’re not fond of rules.
And they have no respect for the status quo.
You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them.
About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them.
Because they change things.
They push the human race forward.
And while some may see them as the crazy ones,
We see genius.
Because the people who are crazy enough to think
they can change the world,
Are the ones who do.

Some pretty motion graphics for you Inga 🙂

This beautiful piece was created by motion graphic studio wOw from Japan. They call it a “virtual landscape” and combined a countdown of the numbers from 1 to 10 with ikebana – the Japanese art of flower arranging.

I love the colors and general mood of the piece.

Funky forest

Funky Forest is an interactive installation made by interactive artist and designer Theodore Watson and motiongraphic artist Emily Gobeille.

It “is a wild and crazy ecosystem where you manage the resources to influence the environment around you. Streams of water flowing on the floor can be diverted to make the different parts of the forest grow. If a tree does not receive enough water it withers away but by pressing your body into the forest you create new trees based on your shape and character. As you explore and play you discover that your environment is inhabited by sonic life forms who depend on a thriving ecosystem to survive.”

The trees and creatures in the installation look really beautiful; just abstract enough to make it look like a strange magical forest, but the processes of our real ecosystems are still recognisable. A really wonderful project.
And it sure looks like a lot of fun!

There is a fun video on youTube and on Theodore Watsons website (youTube might load faster 😉 ).

tragic peaceful death

November 6, 2007

Just letters – but it’s so sad!

The music, this black strap and just white and black colour create a really dark athmosphere! You see how helpless and sad the person is.

Excellent work even though it’s so extremly depressing!

Hey – isn’t that a fantastic clip? It’s one of the best I have ever seen I guess. You can really “see” the music here. And there is just one element: typography!

Really nice work!
