Zeitguised_sim | stim | STASH MAGAZINE

Barcelona design house Folch Studio invites Zeitguised (Berlin’s grand masters of cool weirdness) to help launch Odiseo Magazine No.4 and the result is “sim | stim” which they describe as “a cargo cult of sensual nano-alchemy.”

Gary Baseman Doc “Mythical Creatures” on Kickstarter

Gary Basemen launched a Kickstarter film project today inspired by the heroics of his father Ben Baseman who escaped death at the hands of the Nazi’s twice and then fought against them as a partizan for four years.

Baseman and director David Charles need the cash to travel to the Ukraine “to uncover the Holocaust experiences of Baseman’s parents, and re-imagine their heroic stories through an inspiring, fantastical, heart-wrenching odyssey.”

A worthy cause made all the more appealing with very collectable pledge perks and prizes including this limited edition Partizan poster co-designed by Baseman and Shepard Fairey based on an old photograph of Baseman’s father.

Matt Greenwood: “Elements of Design” Interview

Greenwood Elements of Design | STASH MAGAZINE

Toronto motion veteran Matt Greenwood recently published his personal homage to design, “because even though I have been working as a designer for many years, I still love the process.”

STASH: After carefully laying out the elements of design you end with the advice to “just move things around until they feel right.” Was this intentionally contradictory or cheeky?

Matt Greenwood: The line “Just move things around until it feels right” (with a subtle emphasis on “feels”) was intended to suggest that learning the rules is important, but for me at least, using intuition is essential. I also wanted to hint at breaking these rules shouldn’t be off the table.

It may come across as dismissive, but it was intended to be more of a encouragement to not get caught up worrying if the established formula is correct, because I think visual aesthetics can be subjective. [Read more]
