Tixinda for Nike

Tixinda for Nike

The unbelievable Tixinda team knock is straight out of the park with their Mayan stylings. The colours, lines and a spirited take on traditional art keep me going through these hot summer nights.

The Chavin period of pre-Columbian Peruvian art spans roughly 900 to 300 BC. The images above are reconstructions from the Chavin de Huantar temple corninces in the Peruvian Andes.

Karl Grandin’s animal sweater from 2006 is a unique interpretation of animal depiction and worship. The tiled pattern is clever play on the Wingdings/ Webdings font sets with the cultural recognition of familiar corporate icons like the Napster cat.

Luna Maurers Drawing Typologies design

Luna Maurer's Drawing Typologies design (using Text Pencil)

Scriptographer is beyond my grasp first thing in the morning. The Adobe Illustrator-based script plug in facilitates “the creation of mouse controlled drawing-tools” which appeals to all my vector-graphic-loving sides – the same aspects of myself that prefer to watch people play video games rather than take the controllers myself. I am always happy to discover tools that allow graphic designers to greater meet my aesthetic desires without my taking up the tablet.

Luna Maurer‘s design for the Drawing Typologies exhibit uses Text Pencil, a modern Microsoft Word Art, which pushes text up and down from grid lines, providing a more natural, cut-and-paste feel for computer-generated words and paragraphs. Hektor, “a portable Spray-paint Output Device for laptop computers,” uses Illustrator-based script to operate a robotic paint-and-pulley apparatus that creates mechanized sprays of ink similar to a large-scale laserjet printer.

User-generated Scriptographer as a whole embraces a more fluid sense of computer-based graphic design, lending a tactile hand to a potentially flat and two-dimensional discipline.

I don’t understand if Norwegian Are Mokkelbost is a collective or a single split personality, but I’m feeling these paper collages that look like the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel through a kaleidoscope.
