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:

City Transit Line Posters

In the cel­e­bra­tion of design and rep­re­sent­ing the city you love and/or have affin­i­ty for, here are some city tran­sit line posters designed by the duo: Cay­la Fer­ari (graph­ic design­er) and John Breznicky (engi­neer).

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, 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.

Lim­it­ed edi­tion and was avail­able in two col­ors (gold and sil­ver) only in France. The first ones shipped out March 2011. []
