We would like to share a typography set of experiments for 36 days of type by the mighty folks over BÜRO UFHO. Based in Singapore, they are multi-disciplinary creative studio that focus their work into making brand stories through type, images, illustrations and layout. Working with clients like: BMW, Coca-Cola, HBO and more; I really like their motto at thinking that good design is a good life and being small = freedom to do things that matter.
A few weeks ago, we’ve featured an architectural photo series by Clement Balavoine about his perspective of Tokyo. Now he is back with another project about what he is really passionate about - Fashion Design. It took me him 9 days to create a collection inspired by the work from Errolson Hugh and NikeLab. Even though, it’s only a concept but it’s such a great exercise to express your vision and as a Nike fan; these are really beautiful to look at.
Last month, we were all smashed by the trailer of the controversy and still in the making movie: Ghost in the Shell. I personally watched the trailer and loved it. I liked how they make an effort to keep it close as possible to the animated series. It’s also a great thing to have the Creator of GITS onboard as well. We are taking at the work from Furio Tedeschi and his 3D/digital art contribution to the project.
It’s always impressive that somehow you’ll look at a photograph and you’re not even sure if it’s real or not. I am especially talking about car photographs, we understand that is a tremendous amount of work to just finding the location, getting the equipment, getting the special car and crew to just organize everything together. What if there’s another route?
Hearing news from Adode MAX where they introduced (coming soon) the Project Felix. A product where you’ll be able to easily create 2D and 3D assets, that sounds like it could be amazing. While it’s coming soon, we rather appreciate what’s been done by artists in Autodesk 3DS MAX where I feel there is more control for your composites, lighting and etc.
We would like to share the work of Oleg Soroko and his series entitled: Jupiter 3D Panels. Oleg is an architect based in Moscow, Russian Federation. He has also skills a designer and also a CG Artist, using his skills as a sideline.
Our good friend Peter Tarka never ceased to impress us here on Abduzeedo, with his inspirational concepts filled with colours, digital CGI goodness and the combination of different elements that could literally go from a little plant to a full-size statue for results to be quite lovely.
We just wanna warn you that the following article might be very "sweet" and you might get temptations at getting a snack. We just wanna warn you first! :) Let's talk about the ads that we are all encountered every single day. According to CBS News, we are exposed to an average to 5000 ads per day. This is an enormous number when we all know that there are only 24 hours in a day. Among ads about cars, events, campaigns and others; we'll see a lot of advertising about food.

The weekend is here and to celebrate it, an awesome set of 3D works! Let's check the futurist vision of Kiwi artist, Stefan Morrell. He's got a fantastic set of works! Here you can see his vision of a technological future. Sometimes very green and peaceful, other times kinda messy and super crowded. I must say I really enjoy this last one better, because it reminds me a lot of Blade Runner. How do you like his pieces? For more of it, please visit his portfolio at CGSociety!
I really enjoy the work of people who master computer graphics. Since 3D early days, I've been a aficionado for this fine, tricky art. Maxim Goudin, a designer from Mother Russia has got a super amazing set of 3D works, worth checking out. Here you can see some of his commercial works. All of these are stellar, but my favorite is the city model... I would more than happily play a city simulator game developed by him. It looks better than Sim City! It would be insane.
When we talk about photo-manipulation we almost think about incredible compositions, like fantasy scenes, or crazy manipulations. Sometimes the most amazing work of this kind is so real that we cannot even perceive it as CGI. A great example is the Nike RED campaign created by Souverein where Drogba, the soccer player, creates the Nike symbol and a soccer ball using just laces.
It's been some time since we last checked the insanely good artworks from the guys at the CGSociety. It is a never-ending source of mesmerizing 3d pieces, which we are very pleased to share with you! This time we chose some great examples of recent artworks and more! As the days pass us by, these are getting more realistic... I wonder who long will it take for us to have all of these looking like perfect photographs. Maybe not that long, right? In the meanwhile, check each artist's portfolio for more (simply click each image).
Have you ever seen a car melt down like an ice cream? Well, here is your chance, this CGI work is totally amazing and the melting cars look so real. Enjoy!The melting parts of the cars were created by us in 3D, the cars were shot in a studio and everything was put together in post. CGI and postproduction done by Souverein Weesp, shot by Maarten de Groot
This series of images freezes a moment of time in each dancer's aerial maneuver, and turns their movements into static sculptures that represents their motion and style. Original shots were stock photography and stylized to fit within the scene, sculptures and sets created entirely CGI. This amazing work was done by Mike Campau
