Better players can achieve better posters… we love it

industrialist:

STYN. Pinball Drawing Machine. By playing the machine, the ball creates an unpredictable pattern, which is dependent on the interaction between the player and the machine.  As a result, better players can achieve better posters.

Designer: Sam Van Doorn

Whether you’re a big fan of illustration or not, this time lapse video of 27-year-old Indonesian artist Elfan Diary drawing a new portrait is really quite stunning…

From the always dependable It’s Nice That, we’ve spied Victionary’s newest publication….
From INT:
Geo/Graphics is a brand new volume that explores the prevalence of geometric designs in contemporary graphics, from brand identities to live music visuals. Divided into two sections the book separates neatly the divide between static and moving work, the first examining over 130 printed pieces and the second, 28 multimedia projects.
Pretty cool!

We absolutely love the Humans of New York tumblr
One to follow for sure…

This man was just dominating the ice last night at Bryant Park. While the other skaters foolishly exerted themselves, he cruised along at no more than 1 mph. On the back of his shirt, scribbled in giant letters, was the word “FLOWNESS.”

This “eco-labelling” idea that Rapanui has spearheaded is excellent, we’d love to see it implemented on the high street.

Andrew Marr asks… can good design save the economy?
"To invest in art and design means putting public money into areas whose value cannot be captured on a spreadsheet, where concepts like productivity, value-for-money, inputs and outputs - which so reassure the political world - simply collapse. That means faith. It means risk.
But, without it, hard times surely stretch out rather bleakly. Other countries understand this, including China where more than a thousand art and design colleges are operating and whose students greatly benefit from colleges here too.”
