Robin Davey

Robin Davey, master of seamless, detailed and quirky animated illustrations. I could sit watching the same three seconds for hours on end hypnotised by the repetitiveness of it all.

As well as producing quirky animated gifs he’s also turns his hand to more traditional short animations for commercials, apps and games.

I love this short video showing a still frame break down for work he did on The Tate Movie Project.

Olka Osadzinska

Polish illustrator Olka Osadzinska combines a semi-pixel rendering style to create a lovely bright and intimate look to her work. Combined with her ability to compose capture close moments between her figures it’s no wonder it lends itself to lifestyle, youth and fashion brands like Hugo Boss, Nike and Rebook.

When she’s not busy depicting the lifestyle of a fashionista she organises one of the most successful art fairs in Warsaw the Art Yard Sale and continues to exhibit work worldwide.

Jessica Dance

Let’s welcome the start of the weekend with a little bit of joyful work courtesy of prop designer, stylist and art director Jessica Dance.

Jessica’s charming work comes from combining materials through handmade techniques that works really well for fashion and lifestyle brands such as Mulberry and Vogue. Working with lambs wool is where she’s most at home and clearly comes through in her over-sized knitted objects.

Recently she’s teamed up with moving image maestro Robert Francis Muller to create a new collaborative studio, Get Mullered and Dance that combines both their amazing talents. Ones to watch.

Young

Since Young’s beginning a few years back with their successful illustration and publishing project Learn Something Every Day they’ve shifted their focus towards animation and moving image. And they’re doing a great job of it as well. Translating their colourful and charming style into cute and loveable pieces of moving image.

Their recent work on Midas with Network Warrington shows them at their best working with the talented illustrator Peter Donnelly to tell the story of a tragic love story in a gorgeous American 50’s cartoon feel.

For a glimpse into the rest of Young’s work watch their short showreel below.

POINT Conference – Review

David Hieatt talks about his new company Hiut Denim. Photograph ©Davy Jones 2013.

At the beginning of May we attended London’s latest design conference POINT. Boasting some big names from the design world including, Erik SpiekermannMorag MyerscoughJonathan Barnbrook and video interviews from Alan Fletcher and Milton Glaser the bar was already being set pretty high. POINT took place over two days at Royal Institute of British Architects in London’s west end, the choice of venue (with it’s wooden panelled theatre walls, grand entrance stair cases and architectural-orientated bookshops) and list of speakers set an intellectual and academic tone to the conference.

With just one theatre for all the speakers there was a lot of speakers to get through in both days. For the most part this meant short 30 minute talks in order to stick to a tight formal schedule which kept talks concise and focused. Unfortunately this didn’t leave much time for questions both from the live audience or via Twitter. As both days progressed speakers towards the end of the day were given hour long slots which, for the like of Morag Myerscough and Matt Webb gave the audience a much deeper insight into their work.

LongLunch StudioMakgill

LongLunch has teamed up once again with The Design Museum in London to host a talk with the brilliant StudioMakgill. Taking place on Tuesday 16 April 2013 the talk will presented by founder and creative director Hamish Makgill talking about his work.

Like always LongLunch have worked with their speaker to produce a limited run of screenprinted posters (hand screened by long-term collaborator and talented designer Dan Mather and paper provided by GF Smith) which are then given away on the night, first come first serve. So remember to get there early and bring a poster tube. There’ll also be a Q&A at the end of the talk with prizes up for grabs for questions so get thinking now.

Tickets are on sale via The Design Museum website £17 adults / £12 NUS / £8.50 Museum Members. Doors open at 7.30pm / 8.00pm start.

It’s also a great opportunity to announce and congratulate FormFiftyFive’s Emma Laura Jones and Sean Rees who have taken on the reigns of LongLunch and have help made this talk possible. In addition FFF’s Ryan R Thompson is helping to host LongLunch’s programme of Scottish talks with the next one scheduled for April 25 2013 at The Lighthouse, Glasgow with Ken Garland which should be amazing! Unfortunately the Ken Garland talk has now completely sold out.

We wish them all the best of luck and keep your eyes peeled for other talks coming in the coming months.

POINT Design Conference London

London’s latest design conference POINT, taking place in 2-3 May 2013, aims to explore the power and value of great design within communities and the power it has to change the rules.

Boasting an impressive list of speakers for it’s inaugural year including Erik Spiekermann, Morag Myerscough, Jonathan Barnbrook and film interviews from Milton Glaser and the late Alan Fletcher and will be chaired by inspiring practitioners including Patrick Baglee, Henrietta Thompson and Patrick Burgoyne. With a list of names offering such a wealth of experience we expect POINT will deliver on their aim.

POINT has also set itself the ambitious goal of being the sibling to Frieze and TED in an effort to increased awareness and credibility of design in the wider community. With that in mind the theme of the first POINT conference will be “Authenticity” presented over 25 lectures, screenings and performances and supported by curated online resource open to all at the POINT website.

POINT will be taking place over 2 days at RIBA in London’s West End and tickets are on sale through the POINT website.

The Found Collective

You’ve probably seen The Found Collective’s work before but perhaps never knew it was them. Merging disciplines of film, animation, music, illustration and interactive developers to produce captivating work for big brands like Sony, McLAREN and BBC.  

They recently visited us to talk us through some of their most recent inspiring work and about their recent merger with the folks at Studio Output. Hopefully we’ll see more brilliant collaborations between the two over the coming years and wish the lovely bunch of people at both agencies the best of luck.

Very nice work. Been a long time admirer of Iain’s work… I just didn’t know it was him that did it!

So, when talking about originality, why do people still use those popular artist quotes about art/idea theft? Just as unoriginal, just as idiotic. No wonder some of them defend such behaviour when all they do is ‘copy/paste’ themselves, think of …

What you are failing to understand about the current design society where young designers are being pressured to be noticed by their skills in software and “finish” not so much on their conceptual outcome.

“undeniable skill”? Everyone can download a free 3d model, buy or download a ready 3d light/vray/render studio and hit “render”. That’s not a skill imo. :)
