Despite the later successes and established iconic design, the 911 Spyder remains for Porsche and the whole automotive landscape, some sort of unicorn; an unreplicated, dreamlike beast. This, along with the overall challenge of rethinking the Porsche design led to Project 411.
I am a fan of games. I am also looking forward to the next generation of consoles coming as well as an avid Stadia gamer. For me there’s something about the simplicity of the cloud. However, last night I saw this video of a demo game to showcase NVIDIAs real time graphics with Ray Trace and all the bells and whistles and WOW.
Maribel Martel shared a beautiful branding and visual identity project for Waia Ushuaia. From my bad understanding of Spanish, it seems to be for an upscale real estate/housing business, probably in Ushuaia, which is the capital of Tierra del Fuego, in Argentina.
Glass and the blurred effect of refraction and reflection through transparent materials seem to be a big trend now. Well, I love it and have been using it on my Calmaria.app as well as here on the blog.
You have noticed I’ve been sharing quite a few projects featuring 3D compositions that mix the use of glass/crystal objects, most of the time in abstract form, over simple text. The result is some beautiful typography and some unique chromatic effects. I don’t know much about 3D. I played with Cinema 4d in the past, but it’s much more complex that my brain can follow.
Six N. Five is an art direction and imagery studio based in Barcelona, Spain. They shared an experimental 3D art mixed with architecture titled 'the Japanese Garden' series. It's a full CGI illustration series about a culture that is truly fascinating to me.
This was the most recent SwiftUI experiment. Nothing fancy just trying to understand how to work with shadows. I’ve done similar effects using CSS if you remember here on the blog. But as I am learning this new language, I thought it would be fun to try to design a poster like image using typography and shadows. It was also useful to learn how things animate using states.
A good pal Amrit Pal Singh have shared with us his new project titled: '3D Rooms Project' which is basically a series of how iconic rooms would be represented during the pandemic. It's always rewarding and inspiring seeing what artists, designers, and entrepreneurs are putting together during these times.
We started the designer spotlight to promote designers across the globe. Times are definitely changing, we all live in a pandemic and hopefully soon a post-pandemic reality. Economically things will be difficult initially but eventually things will get better. I know this sounds super grim, but in order to help everyone to spread the word about their work.
Ryogo Toyoda is a 3D illustrator based in Tokyo, Japan, he shared a colorful series of 3D illustrations he worked for the 'Tokyo Design Academy School'. These illustrations that would be used for the school guide purposes and Ryogo wanted to showcase 'how designers contribute to the society after graduation'.
I have been quite inspired by how light reflects and refracts lights and objects creating quite stunning visual effects. For this post I bring this project designed by Diller Scofidio + Renfro , The Tide includes a network of parks and spaces along a flowing pathway that follows the Thames.
The amazing people over at Abstract Logic shared a really inspiring branding and visual identity project for Dope International, a music group and art company supporting work of high quality , integrity, and individuality. The work that Abstract did is very thorough.
The super talented designers at dops.digital created a brand new visual language for the e-commerce development company Elogic. The new visual language aims to speak to its customers on the same level as they speak with their website end-users.
I mentioned in a previous post about my adventures with SwiftUI. It’s fun to learn something new and the least I can do is to share what I learned. For most it might be too introductory, or not necessary, however I know that every journey starts with a first step. So if you know nothing about SwiftUI, you love Swiss Style and you want to get started learning to code look no further.
