Spooky Short: ‘Deathigner”

Today may be Halloween, but not all ghouls want to be scary. This wouldn’t be such an issue…unless of course you’re the son of the Grim Reaper.

Screen Shot 2013-10-31 at 1.41.38 PM

We stumbled across this hilarious and heartwarming animated short which comes straight from the National Taiwan University of Arts. It’s a wonderfully spooky and well produced piece, and we know you’ll especially love it on a day like today.

Have a safe, spooky, and happy Halloween!

The Ultimate October Movie

We hope you are having a wonderful October so far! And if you haven’t yet watched “It’s the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown”, your fall season hasn’t officially begun!

Enjoy this wonderfully designed print then heat up some apple cider, and watch it.

Happy October!

 


Inspirations (Part 2)

As times change, so do the sources of our inspiration. But some things are timeless…

“The Making of Fantastic Mr. Fox”

You reference back to them for wisdom, for guidance, for new ways of thinking.

Like an overflowing bookshelf, your mind pulls tidbits of information from your favorite sources.

Remembering childhood friends,

“The Art of Tim Burton”

and mentors who’ve become masters.

Whether on hand or not, they’ve become part of you; a cherished tool on your utility belt of creativity. What are your inspirations?


Make It Happen

Our newest commercial; visually representing our process of “concept 2 completion” and the ideals upon which it stands.


Google Keeps it Fresh

As a search engine, nothing beats Google. And for something we use so often, it’s a wonder we still haven’t mentally stopped looking at their logo as we search for something else.

It’s part of what keeps us coming back: wondering whether a new design commemorating a holiday, event, or person has been released.

They rarely disappoint; some even verge on brilliance. These are our favorites.

Martha Graham’s 117th Birthday – (Click to view the animation)


Absolutely stunning. Not only in terms of animation but in capturing her some 7 decades of modern dance history in 15 seconds.

Howard Carter’s 138th Birthday


Ancient history, exotic antiquities, the sense of adventure. You can’t help but search the image for other hidden gems.

Anti-SOPA / PIPA Protest


Unique in it’s direct message; powerful in it’s simplicity; when Google joined the anti-SOPA protest it rallied more than a few to the cause.

Mies Van Der Rohe’s 126th Birthday


Alisha is no stranger to Mr. Van Der Rohe’s work; his contributions as one of the pioneers of modern architecture is as much an inspiration as his ideal that “Less is More.”

Robert Moog’s 78th Birthday – (Click and Play!)


Not surprisingly, Nathanael spent quite a bit longer experimenting with the clickable synthesizer than any of us did. It is fun, though.

Eadweard J. Muybridge’s 182nd Birthday – (Click to view the animation)


The Horse in Motion is a composition immediately recognized by all who have ever studied photography & film. Google’s adaptation of it is an incredible tributary piece of interactive art.
