It’s lovely to see some Dutch design, strong and impactful. A clean simple design that never gets old.

Studio Dumbar’s new identity for Visser & Smith Marine Contracting is in the grand tradition of Dutch graphic design studios providing serious industrial concerns with powerful, quirky marks

Visser & Smith Marine Contracting are specialists in laying offshore power cables. All those windfarms you admire from the plane window as you cross the channel? These guys connect them up. Recently, Boskalis, a dredging company, and construction giant VolkerWessels took the business over with a view to international expansion. The new ownership structure and new ambition required a name change and brand update, which is where Studio Dumbar stepped in.

Enjoy, The Narrative.

Peeta 3D Graffiti

PEETA AT MONTANA GALLERY BARCELONA from Montana Colors on Vimeo.

There’s no doubt that Peeta’s artwork is impressive for it’s technical quality. But the story behind the character and the symbolism of the work aren’t any less interesting. The process of the piece made in the Montana Gallery Barcelona for the exhibition, ‘Parallel Realities‘ (http://goo.gl/VRziAf), was documented for the video that we presented along the same lines, and for which we are thankful in better understanding the work of this Venitian graffiti artist from his perspective.

Nick Smith‘s playfully arranges Pantone swatches to paper to re-create famous paintings from “Girl with a Pearl Earring” to “Mona Lisa.” Though his work uses broad swaths of colors, the pictures are still recognizable, looking almost like 8-bit art. He takes classic pieces and brings them into the 21st century, adding a little twist of tongue-in-cheek pop art to it along the way.

Dahlov Ipcar is 97 years old. She lives alone and paints every day.

“I find it hard to explain my art, but then it doesn’t really need explanation. It may seem mysterious or challenging, but all you need to do is to open your heart to the joy and excitement of a new visual experience, to accept a new vision of a world full of the unusual, a world of the creative imagination.”

Quite inspiring an inspiring lady.

Fibonacci Zoetrope

Fibonacci Zoetrope Sculptures from Pier 9 on Vimeo.

These are 3-D printed sculptures designed to animate when spun under a strobe light. The placement of the appendages is determined by the same method nature uses in pinecones and sunflowers. The rotation speed is synchronized to the strobe so that one flash occurs every time the sculpture turns 137.5º—the golden angle. If you count the number of spirals on any of these sculptures you will find that they are always Fibonacci numbers.

For this video, rather than using a strobe, the camera was set to a very short shutter speed (1/4000 sec) in order to freeze the spinning sculpture.

John Edmark is an inventor/designer/artist. He teaches design at Stanford University.
