If you know the awesome bluetooth speaker Lowdi produced by a french start-up, and if you also are fans of what Ed Banger has been doing in the graphic & music industry for the last 10 years, then you are in for a treat. The two music-oriented labels got together thanks to Heineken and are proposing an awesome pack that includes a Heineken bottle entirely designed by So-Me (EdBanger) and the awesome speaker that is Lowdi.


Visualizations of Your Favorite Music Lyrics.

Mico Toledo is a graphic designer who loves typography and music. Combing those two loves, he has started a project entitled “Music Philosophy,” in which he creates a weekly visual interpretation of philosophical song quotes. As Mico points out on his website, these poster designs look great as iPhone desktop wallpapers, and are available for free download on his site. (They also come as silkscreened t-shirts.)

Yelawolf’s Tour Bus Designs.

It’s a peculiar thing to know the thought process behind something you may not pay too much attention to (like WHY the colors for McDonalds are red and yellow).  But as a graphic designer, its your job to have a reason for every single detail in the work you put out.  Seeing the Brisk ‘Bodega’ video of Yelawolf and Tristan Eaton discussing the dope effects on Yela’s tour bus reminded me of that.  It’s one thing just to design the pictures on the side of a bus, but its something entirely different to create a fully functioning concept that becomes logical, memorable, and much more entertaining that you’d expect.  Check the method below.

The Negro Cookie.

Normally I can relate a blog post to a personal experience, or explain why something specific interest me.  But this is just downright hilarious.  My staff and I laughed our asses off for about 30 minutes the first time we all saw this.  Japan has some of the wildest stuff, and the ‘Negro Cookie’ is near the top of the list.

Kenetic Typography.

This Kinetic Typography project was created from dialogue from Conan O’Brien’s final episode of The Tonight Show on NBC. In this dialogue he describes his feelings about NBC and the situation at hand. His personality exudes positivity and humor and this dialogue describes his character very well. Even through the hardships of leaving NBC he promotes hard work and kindness.

The concept behind this video is to show Conan O’Brien as a solid wall and a monumental entertainer. Also portrayed is the relationship between old and new. This comparison shows the idea of a span of time. Conan O’Brien is and will continue to be seasoned television entertainer. This concept was achieved by creating a literal wall out of over 60 individual typographic layouts. These layouts reference a variety of vintage type designs. The combination of vintage styled type layouts and the sleek 3d look achieved in Cinema 4D allow the wall to seem both old and new. This contrast emphasizes time and creates a sturdy and timeless object which is the perfect metaphor for Conan O’Brien.

Fresh Fauxx.

Herman Lee, may not be a fresh face to the design game, but the graphic design in his portfolio are quite fresh.  Graphic T’s, illustrations, and all assortments of graphic/typographical hybrids sprinkle his repertoire.  Check the method below, and more work from Herman Lee can be found at FreshFauxx.
