Another pearl from Platige Image, a short movie born with the collaboration of the visual designer Jakub Jabłoński. It’s a “victorian-style fairy tale” in list for a nomination to the Academy Award for Best Animated Short Film.
Hope to see it fully very soon.

mo project

That’s an interesting project of urban mobility system. With ‘mo‘, more miles you do with a bike, more money you save, and even renting becomes cheaper with ‘mo-miles’. Eco-friendly and high quality of design are the two main aspects of this project, “mo’ members are intended to be able to choose from a comprehensive, single-source range of vehicles as spontaneously as possible… Depending on the means of transport they opt for, ‘mo’ members collect miles for the distances traveled that can then be redeemed within the system.” (ICSID). It won the BraunPrize 2012. Design by Dirk HessenbruchLunar.

Power of Pinterest in data

These are a series of charts realized by Fast Company that help us to understand the Pinterest phenomenom in data. First of all, we realize that women are the predominant users of this social network. ‘Visual Art and Design’ and ‘Craft’ are the predominant tags, but the most interesting fact, as the authors say, is that “..something about its layout and culture stokes an enormous buying impulse.” That means very soon we’ll see companies much interested in ‘pinners’ as they already are in ‘likers’. Design by Ted Keller, Fast Company.
