Anthony Neil Dart is a skilled and self-taught South African designer whose work goes from graphic design and illustration to movie and music production. In his beautiful works I found a surprising balance between typographical elements, photography, digital painting and illustration. Staring at those graphic compositions gives you the same feeling as if you were listening to good music. Last year he expressed himself like this, interviewed by Tara Hornor, questioned about creativity: “I think what inspires creative people manifests itself in their work — the artifacts and shrapnel of all that is digested and then poured out for the viewer to discover, little codes and secret languages.” (from Thinkdesignblog).

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 Hessenbruch – Lunar.

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’.
