Spectre’s UI/OS Designs.


1$_V?_Job Name
While my interests in the latest James Bond outing ‘Spectre’ were primarily audio based, one can’t ignore the beauty and technically precision of the visuals.  One of the least glorified, easily overlooked, but immensely stunning aspects of the film are the digital user interfaces, and operating systems used by characters in the movie.  From the technical breakdown of the DB10, all the way down to the maps, and computer screen designs, each screen was painstakingly created from scratch by incredible visual artists.  Although these images may have quickly been glanced by movie goers during the film, are all below for you to behold.  Check the method.

Bioworkz


 

What is Bioworkz?​​​​​​​​​​​
I’ve always been inspired by H.R. Giger and his work has been defined as “Biomechanics”. Early in my artistic career, I created lots of biomechanical illustrations. That’s how I came up with the moniker BioWorkZ. It’s a moniker I’ve been using since college and it has stuck with me since.​

Who is Ben Kwok?​​​​​​​​​​​​

BioWorkZ a.k.a. Ben Kwok is an L.A. based graphic artist and illustrator. Born in Taiwan, raised in Los Angeles, art has always been a huge part of my life. When I could first use chopsticks, I was already doodling on whatever I could get my hands on. I love complex hyper detailed artwork. To lose myself into the “flow” of drawing is about as good as it gets. I’m very passionate about what I do, that’s why I continue doing it.

I was heavily influenced by the works of H.R. Giger, Alfonse Mucha. Now, I find myself being drawn into type/lettering inspired artwork. Especially works by Aaron Horkey, and David A. Smith. Their attention to detail is simply amazing. I can only hope to get as good or come close to their caliber.

Apparel​​​​​​​​​​​

I’ve been in the apparel business for almost 8 years. Early in my career, I was lucky enough to work at a silk screen print house. Learning to separate colors, burning screens, mixing colors, understanding different inks, how they react with different fabrics. Experimenting with mesh count, testing the outcome of different combination of inks and fabrics. Ultimately, understanding the limitations of how the artwork will translate best once printed onto the garment.

Been with several apparel companies and had the opportunity to work freelance with many more. I am confident I can deliver the right image with the right style. From Mens, Womens, Juniors, Tweens, Kids, and Babies. I’ve done it all and will continue to polish my portfolio. I welcome a challenge…how else will I get better?

​​

Illustration​​​​​​​​​​​​
​Highly detailed, rendered, polished illustration is what I strive for. I want the artwork to pull the viewer in and hold them hostage. I want the image to be initially striking, and when the viewer gets up close and personal, I want the image to unfold into greater details while the viewer absorbs the intricacies and attention to little details. That’s what I personally love about illustrations and that how I would like my art to be perceived.

Fiji Airways

FutureBrand Australia was selected by Air Pacific as their lead design partner to assist the airline with rebranding its identity and experience, as it transforms to ‘Fiji Airways’ in mid-2013. When tasked to search for a new visual language for ‘Fiji Airways’, Air Pacific CEO Dave Pflieger sent the FutureBrand team out to Fiji’s beautiful Mamanuca outer islands to see Fiji and its people at their best. It was there that we saw first-hand the prevalence, beauty, and respect that Fiji has for tradition and its traditional Masi art – an ancient art that embodies the spirit and stories of Fijian culture. From there, we partnered with Air Pacific and locally renowned Masi artist Makereta Matemosi to create the new identity for ‘Fiji Airways’. Makereta created a traditional Fijian Masi for the airline, which is celebrated in the airline’s new identity and translated into its new livery design. Our team also helped design the new cabin interiors of the new ‘Fiji Airways’ A330 aircraft which have Makereta’s Masi motifs embedded in the details.

Csetvei Winery Hrsz. 737 Wine Label Design


01 02 03

Take a look at the creative packaging design by Kira Koroknai, Budapest. As a starting point, Kira’s goal was to create a minimalistic and eye-catching design which fits to the extant identity of Csetvei Winery. With the black and white pattern, she wanted to reflect on the wine’s characteristic and full-bodied taste. The other aspect of the designing was to create the unity of the label and the bottle. Kira wanted the bottle design to be a part of the treat of drinking wine, that’s why she chose the full bottle design instead of a classic label form. This way, the bottle also becomes a part of enjoying the wine. It creates a personal experience as the drinker holds and turn the bottle around while having a chat.

Check out this concept that was created around the question of, “What if Thriller movie characters open a kebab restaurant?”. With the help of  his photographer, Onur Sozeri, Kutan Ural was able to retouch the photos and create the typography for this concept.

Paper Display – Stockholm Furniture and Light Fair


pav3

Check out this Nike store display by the Finland-born, Amsterdam-based illustrator Kustaa Saksi before, but this time, it is his fantastical paper display at the Stockholm Furniture and Light Fair. The intricate and delicate display from 1120 stacks of A4-size paper (total of 700,000 sheets of paper) suspended from 44,000 points in the ceiling. Ceiling frescoes, church domes, altars – these were all part of the inspiration for Saksi and Wingårdh who concluded that paper is still them most commonly used means of communication and therefore the perfect material for the display.

These are 2 pieces commissioned by Adidas Originals for 2 Originals stores in the US. Both pieces will be displayed along side a series of other artist’s works. Jthree Concepts, [aka jared Nickerson] tried to go with a more rustic feel and theme for this project. The pattern based design he introduced a number of additional themes including sci-fi, classic small town signage and Adidas Originals culture.

Helsinki Design Week

The visual identity of Helsinki Design Week changes every year. In 2012 the theme was co-creation. Their is an old game invented by the Surrealists called the ‘cadavre exquis’. A folded piece of paper is passed around a table, each person draws their own part without seeing what else has been drawn. The end result is somethings more interesting than the sum of its parts. The identity is based on this idea of co-creation.

Graphic design is Golden and this artist really showed us that. Its just not ‘slapping text and an image together’ in order to make any print material or online graphics. Its just no sitting in front of a screen, but a blend of research hard work and creativity with lots of time spent.

Blood of Grapes Wine Bottle


03

This creative bottle design was created by Belarusian designer, Constantin Bolimond. His idea is based around the concept of wine as the blood of grapes. The striking form is themed off a human heart to reference the fruit’s origin – France. The product is realized in black and white finishes, featuring a simple inverse typeface to communicate the wine’s label. The design brings a new meaning to the devil’s nectar.

Typography by Lo Siento


Spanish graphic design studio Lo Siento conceived the cover for japan’s +81 magazine, where the artist injects bubble wrap blisters with colored water to spell out the issue’s subject ‘next creativity’.  The work is amongst a diverse range of typographical explorations – moving beyond the traditional realm of 2D to design for various identities and projects. While further below, ‘4D type’ is one concept that sees the idea of lettering to become viewable from all angles, or ’empo’, which is an alphabet created as part of an identity for an osteopathy office informed by the human body. As for the album cover art for the band ‘pinker tones’, we can see the colorful use of more raised objects that create differ type designs and typographical explorations.

Pictogram Music Posters


These Pictogram music posters were designed by an artist known as Viktor Hertz.  He decided to make some posters depicting songs, which left him a lot of new unexplored ground. He is a freelance graphic designer and artist from Uppsala, Sweden. He likes to focus on simple illustrations and make logos, posters, and icons.

Movie Themed Posters Re-Invented (Again).


Minimal posters are very trendy, and Alejandro de Antonio has produced an excellent set of minimal movie posters in this vein. He has an uncanny ability to capture the essence of a popular movie and represent it via a simplistic, but elegant illustration.  His designs showcase how strong the brand is behind the movies, as we instantly connect with the represented protagonists.

Why Running Is Like Graphic Design.


Being surrounded by graphic designers on a daily basis gives me a better perspective of just how unique a craft it is.  But for the layman, learning about graphic design can be a little less easy.  A video my assistant found seems to perfectly sum everything up.  Thank you to Robertcrosscountry for putting his school project up online.

The Color Game.


Click here to test your skills.

Knowing your colors is something you probably stopped focusing on after pre-school.  A vast majority of us see a color wheel and don’t think twice, but for a graphic designer, color can mean everything.  The Color Game is actually more like a test, designed by Maria Munuera and Mark MacKay, and tests matching some colors arrangements in an allotted time.  Click the pic to take a shot at it.

The McFancy.


A few hours ago, I put up some work from the Access Agency about the McMobile concept.  I don’t know why everyone I received emails from about how amazing the concept was, BUT, I found some other interesting twists on the Mickey-D’s franchise by the Access Agency.  The McFancy concept takes the fast food giant, and puts quite a regal spin on things.  Check the method below.

TStout.com Posters.


The few different styles of movie posters, album covers, and most popular media seem to be a dime a dozen now a days, but graphic artist Tyler Stout is trying to change that.  His unique, and multilayered designs, are far more than eye catching.  When compared to the official designs of the projects he’s chosen to replicate, his graphic illustrations are above and beyond.  This is only a small portion of his collection, but check out tstout.com for more.

And of course... My obvious favorite.

Talk Nerdy To Me.


Over the Thanksgiving holiday, one of my (ignorant) cousins made a comment something to the effect of “All your friends are club promoters, strippers, and rappers“, which is beyond untrue.  I spend quite a bit of time hanging out with people in other professions as well, (lawyers, psychotherapists, geologists, rocket scientists, and even a high school math teacher) so when I saw this collection dedicated to the bookworms, I knew I had to put it up.  Illustrations for Nerds in Love is the title of this great poster project made by Nicole Martinez, a designer from Boston, MA. These are love illustrations for the geek in all of us, regardless of your profession. For some of these prints you need some chemistry knowledge but if you know the basics, you’ll understand these prints and I’m sure they’ll make you smile.
