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.

Selettis ceramic Fruit Plate

Seletti's Fruit Plate

For years, I’ve been amassing a table service of ceramic dishes with Century Gothic curves, each painted in contrasting colours to mix and match. This year, Seletti has thrown me for a loop with witty and beautiful pieces and a clean white aesthetic. I’m particularly keen on their white patent leather tablecloth that takes me back to the fabric-lined synthetic tablecloths we used to take camping that are so practical, but never lovely.

Julien de Smedt‘s origami-style china bowl would look fantastic filled with colourful spherical fruit and Rob Brandt‘s Crinkle Cup is begging for a chewed-up bendy straw to slurp pink lemonade from.

Olle Hemmendorff for Nike

Olle Hemmendorff Air Max 90 for Nike

I had a really mature piece ready to post and got distracted by Olle Hemmendorf‘s rendition of the Air Max 90. I’ve never been drawn to Nike’s ethos or aesthetics but I have a lot of respect for them after yet another solid year of inspired advertising.

Last year’s Vintage Running campaign didn’t affect my love of old print ads and catalogues much either. To maintain a lifestyle brand from such dissimilar angles is overwhelming, and a testament to the marketing managers and cool hunters running Nike’s on campus track in Oregon.

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.
