Someone I know just posted this on facebook, (I don’t know who to credit). Taking old records and repurposing them for business or postcards… good idea! I have such a postcard collection too, this would be fun. I’m thinking about it.. I’ll have to find an old record from my parents’ collection that I won’t miss too much.
This video blew me away.. wow! It kind of reminded me of my experience at The Museum of the Moving Image last year. This video is about “light painting” and it is incredible how they have developed this way of creating it using the iPad.
Making Future Magic: iPad light painting from mcgarrybowen uk on Vimeo.
Quoted from their video description:
“This film explores playful uses for the increasingly ubiquitous ‘glowing rectangles’ that inhabit the world. We use photographic and animation techniques that were developed to draw moving 3-dimensional typography and objects with an iPad. In dark environments, we play movies on the surface of the iPad that extrude 3-d light forms as they move through the exposure. Multiple exposures with slightly different movies make up the stop-frame animation.”
Back when I was in middle school/high school I had a huge sticker collection. I’m not really sure what made me want to collect them (probably the lack of internet in my life at the time LOL). But I had a ton, and now that I’m a full time designer I love the fact that I can create basically anything I want and have it printed. I’ve been searching for a company that does sticker printing. Print Runner offers many options on sticker printing but the thing I am super excited about is the fact that they offer them in a roll! Not just sheets of stickers.
Now my only issue is deciding what to put on the stickers. Designing for someone else – that’s easy. Designing for me? It will be the design that never ends! Any suggestions on what I should print on stickers?
A few weeks ago I submitted an idea to Tattly. What’s tattly you ask? Fun, temporary tattoos made by designers. Back when I was a waitress, and when we had nothing to do I would take the temporary tattoos from the machine and make it stick to the cardboard on the back of my writing pad.
I was reminded of this when I first heard of tattly. So I went ahead and bought myself one of those Moleskin Cahier Notebooks. And had a party with it.
Some tips when applying to cardboard:
- It might be sticky to the touch for a little while, just let dry.
- It might crack and weather over time but to me that’s what makes temporary tattoos awesome!
