Conceived by Japanese designer Nosigner as a symbol of hope after the earthquake and tsunami left Japan with almost none to be had, the Moon light is an accurate rendering of our only natural satellite.

Nosigner said after the twin disasters struck, many Japanese prayed to the "˜super moon', the biggest full moon in a cycle of 18 years. ""˜The Moon' is the light of our hope," the designer wrote on his blog.

To mould each crevice and scar on the moon's surface accurately, Nosigner collected 3D topographical data from the lunar orbiter Kaguya.

Animation time.

Heinz Edelman - responsible for the art direction and character design of Yellow Submarine.







Fed Wolf's great Rockman sequence from 1971's The Point.




A walk cycle is one of the first things you learn as an animator. Ryan Larkin took it to a new place in 1968's Walking.

Some work I wish I had gotten away with.

Designed by Wolff Olins at a cost of £400,000 (almost $800,000). I can't decipher it.

It looks like a starter set of blocks for child autism therapy.

Iran claims that the four-year-old London 2012 logo spells the word “Zion,” and has lodged a formal complaint with the International Olympic Committee (IOC). “As Internet documents have proved, using the word Zion in the logo of the 2012 Olympic Games is a disgracing action and against the Olympics’ valuable mottos,” the Iranian government wrote in a letter to the IOC, which was released via the state-backed Iranian Students News Agency. “There is no doubt that negligence of the issue from your side may affect the presence of some countries in the Games, especially Iran which abides by commitment to the values and principles.”

An IOC official confirmed that the letter had been received, but insisted that the logo “represents the figure 2012, nothing else” while a London 2012 spokesman told The Guardian that “we are surprised that this complaint has been made now.”

I’m on Iran’s side here. Not only does the logo spell Zion, but if you squint, tilt your head, squeeze a little lemon juice in your eyes, and hold your breath for 30 seconds, you can also see a swastika. The designers at Wolff Olins should be ashamed.

When did Iranians learn how to read?
post #42 of 315

I remember when that was designed a few years ago. There was some hoopla about the fact that it was so blatantly trendy and not really in the "Olympic Spirit", but I hadn't heard about this Iranian business. Sheeesh. I wonder if they got to submit their own logo. It was a design bake-off, after all.

 

How about the new Pepsi logo? That's almost in the same league... and probably 3x the stakes.

Logo design is serious business!

+1.


I was thinking it would be a fairly silly crafts-fair design, but wow. I want one.

The brother duo, Hussain and Ali Almossawi, of Skyrill has released their experimental project Type Fluid, which is just typography that looks like exploding paint.  Every letter of the alphabet was built in 3D, exploded under extreme pressure, and captured at the moments when the ‘liquid’ still took the letters’ forms.

“My concept was to capture the most interesting moments while this happens, while still keeping the letterform noticeable,” Hussian, who makes up half of Skyrill, says.

In a 3D software, gravity and pressure was adjusted so the shapes of the letters were ‘filled up’ with ‘paint’ completely. When each letter was filled, “liquid from the constraints of the original letter shape” was released, and let to explode and splash on the ground.
