Bleed.no

25 January 2011

Bleed is a multi-disciplinary design consultancy from Oslo, Norway. Dabbling in everything from brand identity and packaging to “art projects” and exhibitions, they’ve established themselves as one of the most awarded agencies in Norway.

Thomas Traum has designed 25 amazing 3D renderings for this years “Most Beautiful Swiss Books” in collaboration with Carl Burgess and Laurenz Brunner.

The way Traum’s 3D kitsch interplay with Brunner’s occult-like multi-column layout works rather nicely. The overall effect – glossy renderings opposite dense blackness – feels appropriate for something that can risk being perversely self referential.

If I could only find a copy of Bryce 3D…maybe all these American design annuals would be a little more interesting.

2010 Grads : Batch 1

07 July 2010

A few weeks back we reached out to students from all over the world, who are graduating this year, and asked them to submit their work to our new 2010 Grads feature. We had a huge response and have been really impressed with the quality of work. Thanks to everyone who answered our call.

We’ve decided to release the Grads in batches over the next couple of months, culminating in an extended feature at the end of the Summer. Till then, please feel free to get in touch with any of these guys/gals for work placements or job offers. The doors are still open to new submissions (for a limited time) – if interested, please send your name, school, url, graduation date, and a short bio to submit [at] thestrangeattractor.net.

I’m happy to announce my new monthly podcast, Psychometry, a continuous DJ mix of electronic, deep house, techno with a splash of pop and indie. You can subscribe to it via iTunes. I find it interesting that a lot of designers I know are also DJ’s. With that said for future episodes I plan on splitting the mix between myself and a guest DJ. In the meantime enjoy.
