People Factor is a series of graphics started by Eno Henze in 2006. The essence of the series was to convey the idea that computer graphics is becoming something more than conveying the thoughts and moods of the artist. This is a cooperation between man and machine of some kind. Everybody brings something of their own into it. Here are very beautiful abstractions. But it looks kind of scary on the prints.
I hope you looked at the pictures before reading this a great designer idea – make a boring USB-drive look like a piece of smoked foods. I’d really like to have one of these. It looks like your hands are going to be greasy if you touch them This thing is not too expensive, 4 Gb cost something like $20, plus shipping and handling.
The design of these lamps was developed by Yu Jordy Fu. She’s Сhinese by birth, but she’s lived in the UK for a very long time. By the way, the exhibition of these lamps was very highly praised many times. The concept of the cloud itself is very interesting, the lamp looks multidimensional. I’m sorry for the photos’ quality. They were made by lamp owners, and they aren’t professional photographers.
Sometimes you have a problem, when you’ve got a 5 page document, that needs to be put together, and you haven’t got neither a staplee nor a binder. I’ve had this problem just yesterday and I’ve had to fold the upper left corner of the sheets to stick them together somehow. And if yesterday I’ve found a simple but effective idea of sticking paper together by Mr. Sherwood Forlee, I wouldn’t have had so much trouble. Full news has step-by-step description how to stick together sheets of paper without anything. I believe the idea will be passed further.
A Hawaiian orudorumagi demonstrates the right attitude to money with these DIYs. Money is just the material and means to do interesting things. While making all of these, the author never cut the dollar and haven’t used a drop of glue. He just bended a single dollar bill. But he had to weave the second dollar into a complicated figure.
The definition of aesthetics in my mind is closely linked with the amazing hand-made postcards by Yana Danylova. It’s probably because her works are so precise and details but so simple overall. They are very nice postcards of pieces of fabrics, color paper, threads and some dried green things. And voila, beauty is ready. I can’t just walk past them and not touch those masterpieces through their wrapping.
There is power in the word! Even power is a word. New year is coming, it’s time to write some postcards (real or virtual). If your handwriting is not readable, and standard Photoshop fonts have become boring, you can use the idea of Vladimir Koncar from Croatia. It’ll make for a very unusual font style. What do you think this text is made of?
What to do? What to give? The holidays are here, and we need presents ASAP! I’m desperate for ideas. But I stay calm. There are so many creative people today, that it’s impossible not to find a great gift. If you have a lot of free time, you can make a stuffed animal by yourself. This will always be valued. Or you could buy one in an Internet shop, there are lots of things there.
Design-maniacs don’t stop and have no intention of doing so. This handmade book by Su Shanshan from China was redone and made the audience look at its unusualness, not on the cover or the story. This must have been her diploma project, as she’s a student in a design school. It’s very aesthetic, minimalistic, and you want to touch it. Su said her father did the calligraphy, and we have no reasons not to believe her.
October 31st is nearing, and with it this great Halloween holiday. It’s not 300 years old. First it was celebrated only by Celts, and they lived a very long time ago. For them, it was the coming of cold and winter. Then the Romans came, and they liked this holiday, because they didn’t mind celebrating anything. To them, it was the Day of the Passed. Later, the Catholic church joined in the 8th century and legalized the holiday when Christian All Saints day was moved from May 13 to November 1. After being set up as a British entertainment for common people, the holiday was spread throughout the British Empire.

Jewellery watches, rings, earrings and others by Cartier, Mikimoto and Stefan Hafner. Elite high class among jewellery, that’s what they are. But we’ll be talking specifically about the photographer Claus Wickrat, who made those photos for advertising of jewellery. Full attention is attracted to those things that are so dear to a woman’s heart. Oh, if only I could get them as a present…
There is hardly any fashion freak who doesn’t have at least one pair of ballet flats, that remain popular for the second year in a row. Designers have thought of a lot of things during this time: different angles, added straps etc. As fashion goes in cycles, the things that were in fashion some years ago, come back to us. For example, clutch purses and badges are back. Claire Fitch demonstrates her vision of ballet flats, purses and badges. I should note, that those things were made by hand. Or almost by hand
Photos of interiors for fashion magazines. The photographer is Eric Striffler. All that was needed from the photorgrapher was to choose the right angle. The interior was made by other people, and it turned out to be very stylish.
A Scottish jewellery designer presents the Vintage Collection. Nice and sweet jewelery for women in the vintage style. While keeping to his direction and peculiar stylictics, the designer was still able to convey calm and not vulgar mood of his collection. Simple and almost minimalistic.
Nice dolls (I’ve made such when I was little ) from an English designer. Rosalind Bates has a degree in textile design. She belongs to the New Designers Union. Speaking of New Designers. This organization allows art school graduates to start their career, supports talented people by arranging their expos and helping them build their network. Now that’s work…
On design again. This time it’s the lamps from a young designer Vivienne Chan. You turn this things on and all the walls are lighted with grunge-style pictures. A good idea. Especially considering the fact that you can make this lamp by yourself by following the instructions.
Medocrity is the worst. Even if it’s peacefully lying on a couch and is remembered only when one wants to hit one’s brother/sister/friend with it. But pillow design from Nadia Sparham will save us Every pillow is unique and is handmade by orders. As they say, “any whim…”
Raya is a colouful name for one’s ear. She’s the youngest in the team of Calypso photographers. But you won’t notice that because of her huge experience. She’s made lots and lots of interesting advertising and fashionable photos for fashion magazines.
I chose a couple of pictures from a few series. My selection is one of the best. Pictures 12 and 13 would make great avatars for girls
Karim is half English, half Egyptian. He was born in Canada Vessel Gallery(Great Britain) specially founded and conducted an exclusive presenation “Symbolik collection” – Karim’s expo of ceramics. Those who don’t know much about symbolism, shoudn’t even try to appraise Karim’s works. All of them are available for sale. But, as you understand, it’s a designer creation, it doesn’t cost pennies. Be ready to spend 525 to 1075 pounds.
The first five pictures are cups.
