Synth Eastwood is accepting submissions for their upcoming show in Dublin. The current brief is “HOMEMADE”. The show will be taking place on May 15, 2009. Closing date for entries is May 4. For a quick view of past shows, check out the reel.
Established in 2006 Synth Eastwood is a Dublin based music, art & technology group. Our aim is to present creative work from around the world in an atmosphere more akin to a gig than an exhibition. This is done by inviting artists of every field and level of experience to submit work based on a theme/brief we set. All relevant work is welcomed and exhibited at no cost* to the artist.
New York based design studio, Project Projects, have updated their website with a fresh design & loads of great new work. I remember reading awhile back that they had been planning this redesign, so it’s quite exciting to finally see its launch.
I completed an interview with Byggstudio back in 2006 for a zine, but never published it. I feel like I owe them a bit so I present their work here. I hope you like their down-to-earth direction as much as I do.
Lots of new artists are being featured at The Few Gallery. Especially like the new work (above) from Micah Lidberg and Mar Hernández.
Karina Peterson is a student from Denmark with beautiful experimental typography and design. Thanks for the link Karina!
Emil Ruder is one of my favorite designers..hands down. So when we got in these new IDEA Magazines at YouWorkForThem featuring his work, I got really excited. And with good reason. Issue 333 features not only page after page of Ruder’s work but also the philosophy behind Ruder’s pioneering typography. I think why this issue is important is that it presents a case for the design choices being made, something I see less and less of circling in the forefront of graphic design resources like image sites and published books; unfortunately the places a lot of students and young designers look to for guidance and inspiration. Invest in this, you won’t regret it.
