A nice look into the life of Shawn Theodore and what inspires his street photography.
This is a portrait of Shawn Theodore, a street photographer in Philadelphia.
Early last year I stumbled upon an Instagram account named XST. A collection of powerful, vibrant photos of Philadelphia’s population sprinkled his account, immediately captivating me.
As I quietly admired his work, the mystery of both the man posting them and his methods of creation toyed with my imagination. By late fall, my curiosity piqued, and so I stepped outside my comfort circle and reached out to him.
I flew across the country and was received by one of the kindest, warmest humans I’ve ever met. Shawn Theodore, a creative director by day and moonlighting street photographer, showed me around the city and let me ride co-pilot as he went about his fantastic passion of photographing the wild colors and people of one of America’s oldest working-class cities.

Like something out of a Manga film, this new technique of graffiti mapping is an exciting trip into whats potentially around the corner.
During the 15th Anniversary de OFFF 2015, Montana Colors together with DOSBCN Studio present the audiovisual piece, “Graffmapping”, where the mapping technique is projected over 14 80x80cm boxes (MTN Puzzl6), forming a pyramid of light and colour.
This sum of tools makes it possible to design a visual language that adapts to any space and surface, making any intervention ephemeral.
It’s a renewed vision of graffiti through the interaction of techniques, brought to us by the young design studio formed by Canary Island graffiti writers and designers, who are based in Barcelona.

A great series of “mind the wall projects” love the mixed media that Laguna & Deih use giving that liquid flow to the piece.

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.

Chinatown is a Chinese translation of the trademarks in a graphical way. It’s a carefully arranged series of artworks showcasing 20 well-known western brand logos with maintained visual and narrative continuity.
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.

A promotional video I created for Hello Play, a Belgian online electronic music platform.
This surreal and retro interpretation of electronic music was driven by a concept to create a beat using instruments that glitch and deform according to the sound they produce, creating a visual landscape that reflects the sonic one.
