Keep Drawing

“Keep Drawing” is a video by Studio Shelter. The short movie has a nice little soundtrack, with the whole concept based around drawing and sketches. It starts off with a few simple sketches then transforms and animates into more complicated ones. Please take a look at the short video after the screenshots below.

Plastastic Lego Cufflinks

lego cufflinks image

These funky Lego themed cufflinks are from an shop aptly named… Cufflinks! I think these are great, and so original too. They’d be good for kids to wear with their tiny suits, but I suppose some hardcore, grownup adult Lego fans would also wear them too. The classic space-Lego (that features at the end of this post) takes me way back to when I was seven years old. These cufflinks are great stuff, I’m sure you’ll agree…

Vinyl Art Sculpting by Scott Marr

As a follow-on to my previous music based post, here’s some incredible vinyl art sculpting by Australian artist, Scott Marr. He takes old vinyl records and carves intricate patterns into them (with great effect). The example below named “Records Bones” is an old Decca vinyl 25cm record. See the rest, too…

2 Amazing Videos With 120 Million Page Views

Walk off the Earth band image

Design Soak is hardly the place to watch new music, but I couldn’t resist showing you this amazing video. It’s from a band named Walk off the Earth, who have produced a stunning yet simple video of a track by Gotye, which is entitled “Somebody That I Used To Know”.

Currently, this cover video has achieved 55 Million YouTube views, and the original version, 75 million! What I love about the video is how simple the concept is, yet how complicated it must have been to achieve in the first place. As the video progresses, the more entertaining it becomes. Each member of the team contributes either a vocal or chord towards making the song. I was especially keen to see what part the bloke on the right played, as he spent the first part starring at a wall (apparently, he’s know the ‘Beard Guy’). All entertaining stuff, though…

Carpark Drenched in Color

Kindergarten Carpark image

Visual designers Craig and Karl have have painted a carpark in dazzling color as part of a creative Mural. It was created for the underground car park of a private residence in the city of Sydney, Australia. My first thoughts on these images was “Wow!, it’s like a Kindergarten Car Park”, but it’s much more than that. Drenched in color, this is simply amazing! They’ve managed to transform something mundane and grey into an attractive place to park.

Here’s some more info on Craig Redman and Karl Maier from their site:

Craig Redman and Karl Maier live on opposite sides of the world but collaborate daily to create bold work that is filled with simple messages executed in a thoughtful and often humorous way. They specialize in illustration and installation. [they] have exhibited across the world, most notably at the Musée de la Publicité, Louvre. They have worked on projects for clients like LVMH, Google, Nike, Apple, Vogue, Microsoft, Converse, MTV and The New York Times [read more].

GlassBoy, a Clever Car Speed Reduction Ad

Glass boy

GlassBoy is a clever ad aimed at reducing car speed. It was created by Israel-based designer, Roni Kleiner, an experienced TV Commercial Director. He specialises in creating VFX and animation enriched commercials. This video is amazing, and is well worth a watch. It starts off by showing a boy who turns into glass, which acts as a metaphor for the fragile nature of children.

As can be seen in the screenshots I’ve posted, a car hits the glass-boy and he smashes to pieces when the car hits him at 40mph. The ad then shows what happens when the car hits the boy when only traveling at 30mph. Take a look at the short video at the end of this post…

A Smoke Detector Worthy of Twitter Fans

Chick-a-Dee Smoke Alarm

Dutch designer Louise van der Veld has design a smoke detector that mimics a bird on a branch. The Chick-a-Dee is a combination of life-saving technology and contemporary design.

Available in at least four colours, I’m sure Twitter fans and bird lovers alike will enjoy this unique take on a standard smoke alarm.

Threaded Art by Gabriel Dawe

threaded art 1

These stunning threaded art installations were created by the talented Gabriel Dawe. He uses coloured threads to ‘build’ clever artistic sculptures that are inspiring quite unique. They remind me a little of the outdoor sculptures of Melbourne Federation Square. Using threads that span the entire rainbow spectrum, these pieces look different depending on how light shines on them and the angle they are viewed from. Simply amazing, I’m sure you’ll agree. Check out the rest of the set…

Here an extract from Gabriel’s Bio:

Gabriel Dawe was born in Mexico City where he grew up surrounded by the intensity and color of Mexican culture. After working as a graphic designer, he moved to Montreal, Canada in 2000 following a desire to explore foreign land. In search for creative freedom he started experimenting and creating artwork, which eventually led him to explore textiles and embroidery—activities traditionally associated with women and which were forbidden for a boy growing up in Mexico. Because of this, his work is subversive of notions of masculinity and machismo that are so ingrained in his culture [ read more ].
