On Design


Inspiration — Grzegorz Domaradzki

I’ve been fol­low­ing Grze­gorz Domaradzki’s work for a while. His illus­tra­tions just have a hint of clean sketch­i­ness in them (in terms of those lines) that I’ve grown to love. Not only that, he also shows a break­down of his work­flow which def­i­nitely adds more of an inter­est­ing twist of how cal­cu­lat­ing his thought process could be fore­seen; only to pro­duce more respect at the works’ qual­ity and uniqueness.

Here are some of the ones that I have found awe­some in:

Of Occupy Wall Street, Art and Design

The top news for the past cou­ple of days has been Steve Jobs’ pass­ing away, and the #Occu­py­Wall­Street move­ment. The move­ment started Sep­tem­ber 17th and is still going on. There’s been cov­er­age about it but one can tell that its not the full-coverage that we are all receiv­ing. Though, that is a story for another time and place.

Mean­while, from all of the recent devel­op­ments of it, there has been a surge of pas­sion­ate story-telling be it in a form of a tweet, an inter­view,1 or a writ­ten, poetic “offi­cial state­ment” which was recently read out by Keith Olber­mann.2

Another prod­uct of this, I must say, has been the print-design work that has been made avail­able to the pub­lic by Adbusters. The one that stands out the most to me is the visual-art piece with the dancer on the “Charg­ing Bull”.

Daft Punk x Coca-Cola

We’ve seen a lot of col­lab­o­ra­tions lately. Biggest one I recall would prob­a­bly be KAWS x Hen­nessy this past late-July. Recently, after the first set of bot­tles this past Feb­ru­ary1, the new col­lab­o­ra­tion between Coca-Cola and Daft Punk rebooted.

Cre­ated by dress­ing two bot­tles of pre­cious met­als, like their hel­mets: gold and sil­ver. All lim­ited to 20 signed copies.

  1. The asso­ci­a­tion between the French duo Daft Punk and Coca-Cola with the pack­ag­ing and the bot­tle “Daft Coke” recall­ing the sym­bolic col­ors of Daft Punk hel­mets. Lim­ited edi­tion and was avail­able in two col­ors (gold and sil­ver) only in France. The first ones shipped out March 2011. []
