Do yourself a favor and crank the volume on your unit. The audio and motion graphics match so perfectly in this clip, it’s quite mesmerizing.

You can check out other experimental videos from Klipp og Lim (design and communication agency located in Trondheim, Norway), on their blog along with other interesting blog posts.

Ever wonder how a car comes together in the sense of form and structure. Who really decides what curves go where? The BMW Blog features a wonderful post showcasing multiple pictures of BMW designers shaping the car by manipulating a life-size clay model.

From the guys who set up the Soft & Furry contest, Cypher 13 has a crazy amount of impressive work that needs to be recognized. Take a look.

The Genius of The DesignChapel

^ The first image is a close up of one of the pieces of art offered on Blau Gallery. The second is a selection of work that was featured on Lindstrom’s website. The third image is a quick snapshot of Reform & Revolution’s blog.

Originally this post was solely going to focus on Blaugallery, an online business that focuses on selling limited artist prints stretched to canvas (they also offer a service in which you too can take your work and have it printed and stretched to canvas). However, forgetting that the business was created by Robert Lindstrom of The DesignChapel, also co-founder of North Kingdom, I did a bit of browsing on his website, since it’s been some time. Not only is Lindstrom responsible for Blaugallery, North Kingdom and an insane amount of inspirational art direction, he also is responsible for the design focused blog Reform and Revolution.

So think of this post as an ode to Mr. Lindstrom and his innovative genius. Go ahead and check out the wonderfully luscious prints at Blaugallery, take a look at Robert Lindstrom’s work at The DesignChapel, stay up to date with what he’s currently working on at The DesignChapel’s blog, browse the inspirational links over at Reform and Revolution, gaze at the numerous works of efficient design execution at North Kingdom and pray that one day you will have just one-tenth of the creativity that pours out of Lindstrom’s pores, for that is respectable in itself.

After adventuring through Jennie Hancock’s website, I noticed that she worked for the creative characters at Zip Design. They had an impressive collection of work (and a lot of it too) that I felt I needed to share. The above images are a series that was entitled The Four Horsemen (Pestilence, War, Famine and Death).

An entertaining collection of work from Jennie Hancock. I’m anxiously anticipating the work that comes out of The Russian Club, a design studio that Jennie is setting up. Take a look at her work along with the progress of The Russian Club’s studio renovation.
