Slagletron is Jessica Slagle in NYC, producing some striking digital illustration/collage pieces. We haven’t featured anyone here in quite some time, and Slagletron was the perfect opportunity to serve up some great Monday afternoon visuals. There’s a lot more to see at slagletron.com, as well as on Facebook. Check out the DADA-Tron album for another corner of her stylistic range.
Just wanted to throw this up on the Phase Blog – designboom is a long time favorite of mine for daily design content, inspiration, reporting, culture-tracking… and I soak it up almost exclusively through their daily eblasts. Usually on my mobile. Well-curated, always fresh, and global in scope. Architecture, product design, graphics, digital, furniture, experimental, art – all bleeding edge stuff. Check it out and enjoy.
Here’s a quick taste of a featured architecture project – ‘fragile shelter’ by hidemi nishida, outside of Sapporo, Japan. More info here.
If a picture is worth a thousands words, what will this video of a thousand words be worth?
This Kinetic Typography project was created from the dialogue of Conan O’Brien’s final episode of The Tonight Show on NBC. In this farewell address, he describes his feelings towards NBC and the situation at hand. His personality exudes positivity and humor allowing this dialogue to describe his character very well. Even through the hardships of leaving NBC he promotes hard work and kindness.
The concept behind this video is to show Conan O’Brien as a the monumental entertainer and solid wall that he is. Conan O’Brien is and will continue to be a seasoned television entertainer. After drawing inspiration from Lou Dorfsman’s Gastrotypographicalassemblage, this concept was achieved by creating a literal wall from over 60 individual typographic layouts. These custom crafted layouts reference a variety of eclectic type design. The combination of eclectic typography and modern 3D letter forms achieved in Cinema 4D provides a contrast between old and new. This contrast emphasizes time to create a sturdy and timeless object. This solidity and timelessness is the perfect representation of Conan O’Brien.

An amazing architectural / photographic / perspective / artistic / technical project. Explore and enjoy:
This stuff is cool. Super vibrant, with some nice blends of geometric/grid and organic stuff. Artsy and techy. And the site is as good as at least 2-3 cups of coffee. Definitely check the print work while you’re there:
A very structured but very creative experimental typeface project, with a great result. Restrictions lead to new and interesting things. Thrown down by Nello Russo at behance.net/nellorusso
A great series of works going out on the US modern art circuit starting later this year. And a rad site as well, which is surprising to see for an artist.
Take a nice close look (zoom and explore) on Mark’s site, pinocchioisonfire.org
Rad visuals, a rich color palette, cool and intuitive touch-screen interactions, and an all around smart evolution for the world of turntables. An application as an instrument, in a way. Check out the demo video on Vimeo, and see the process overview here.
This is an MFA thesis project – amazing. More work from GERGWERK, otherwise known as Gregory Kaufman is at gergwerk.com.
