Bluerock/Spontanouse holiday invite evokes Japanese woodblock art

No paltry jpeg for what promises to be one of Manhattan’s lavish holiday parties – the Bluerock/Spontaneous bash at Buddakan. I’m wondering if they might start a trend in animated invites with their creation of an Asian-themed :30 animated popup that is very cool to watch.

Using the ‘exquisite corpse‘ method of collective assembly each student was given 14 seconds of music to animate, with the next participant having to continue the animation from where the previous left off. Keeping the loose ends tied are the overall themes […] [Read more]

IF FOR CBS SPORTS

Sports promo clips that include live-action footage are notoriously hard to keep from falling into cheese-filled cliché land. This NFL treatment – built around CBS Sports’ new logo package from Imaginary Forces – hits all the visual cues the mainstream viewers need to see (including cheerleaders’ navels) but keeps its dignity intact with clean design […] [Read more]
