Carl Bender is a very recent grad from the Academy of Art University in San Francisco. Great work, thanks for the link!

David Lynch and his son Austin and his friend Jason took a 20,000 mile road trip across the US and shot 4-5 minute interviews with 121 strangers they met along the way. The project airs Monday on davidlynch.com, where there will be a new episode every 3 days. Catch the trailer, which is up now…

Gotta Moo

29 May 2009

For Narani Kannan’s final-year project at Ontario College of Art & Design, she designed and conceptualized an eco-friendly dairy product line called Gotta Moo. There’s so much I love about this project… every detail down to the “Sugarcane Bagasse molded pulp paper” has been carefully considered. She’s obviously on her way to being a design superstar. See more of her work on Behance.

This is a long overdue mention of Neasden Control Centre out of the UK. They create amazing design, art, exhibitions, installations, etc etc.

Jorge Colombo drew the latest cover of The New Yorker using the iPhone app Brushes. Pretty darn good, considering. New Yorker article with video here. Via CR.

COÖP

Coöp, based in Melbourne, was founded in 2004 by Paul Marcus Fuog. I’m especially liking the beautiful object-collage photography incorporated into a lot of their work.

Synopsis:

For many, Milton Glaser is the personification of American graphic design. Best known for co-founding New York Magazine and the enduring I ♥ NY campaign, the full breadth of Glaser’s remarkable artistic output is revealed in this documentary portrait, MILTON GLASER: TO INFORM AND DELIGHT. From newspapers and magazine designs, to interior spaces, logos, and brand identities, to his celebrated prints, drawings, posters and paintings, the documentary offers audiences a much richer appreciation for one of the great modern renaissance men.

Artfully directed by first time filmmaker Wendy Keys, the film glances into everyday moments of Glaser’s personal life and captures his immense warmth and humanity, and the boundless depth of his intelligence and creativity.
