The title describes the work perfectly. These images are simply stunning, with a rich sense of depth. For full listening pleasure, they’re best listened to with Boards of Canada‘s Zoetrope. ‘Where can I find that’ I hear you say? Well look no further than the above blog post…
This is Rebecca Black’s song, Friday, and it’s been gaining a million plus daily YouTube views this week. The song tells the story of an average Friday for Rebecca, full of fun fun fun and thirteen year olds driving convertible cars.
Justin Bieber has obviously inspired a lot of young people to try to become successful recording artists, however he’s also filled parents and record label owners eyes with pound / dollar signs who are now pushing enthusiastic children down that path regardless of their talent.
If you’ve looked at a billboard or poster advertisement over the past 10 years or so, you’ll have no doubt seen the work of top fella and digital retoucher supremo Terry Obiora.
Did I say he dabbles in photography too? Well aside from making nearly every car brand worth its salt look far better then they deserve, Terry also has a stunning body of personal work. Some of which you’re privy to right now.
Yesterday I popped down to the Responsible Business Convention at the Business Design Centre,Islington. I was there to help spread the good word about Social Enterprise to the conference’s corporate delegates.
We also designed the poster for the Business in the Community Supporting Social Enterprise stand, which promoted the idea that the three P’s – people, planet, profit – work best together.
Empty spaces are becoming hot property at the moment. With our own Open Shop using disused spaces to hold community focused workshops and Libyan refugees occupying the empty Hampstead home of one of Qaddafi’s sons, people are finding new ways to re-invent the white washed window front.
Last week the twenty%extra team packed our backpacks and headed off to Middlesbrough, Stoke-on-Trent and East Grinstead to start part two of Green Stories for Affinity Sutton.
We got the chance to meet the 5 finalists of the Green Stories competition, learning about their personal stories of how they improved sustainability, energy use to recycling in their community. We have to say, they were a lovely bunch and made us laugh (a lot) throughout our workshop sessions.
The photographs above (yeah there are a few!) are of one of the projects in Stoke, a resident led community & garden centre. Watch out for part three where we will be making short films of each of the projects.
Affinity Sutton has taken an innovative and creative approach to engage their residents into green issues.
Last year we started working them to create a marketing campaign to encourage the early adopter green residents to share their Green Stories by making 6 short films, which in return will inspire other residents to recycle and make positive eco choices.
Above is the fabulous, Vee, who started modelling at the grand young age of 70. She has appeared in ads fromVogue to Harry Potter to Mickey D’s, so we were very pleased she was available for our shoot!
Tangible ‘benefits’ simply, yet ingeniously illustrated. It can only be the work of Noma Bar. Banks hold up the robbers? I’d heard the banks were the robbers.
Spurious facts aside, the necessity to reflect the social outcome is clear. Perhaps done in response to the philanthropic work of Bill Gates’ Microsoft and their GOOD iniative, IBM’s new communications are a reflection of how even the technological monoliths strive for a more amiable position in the market place.
