Messymsxi

We recently got a tip-off about Messy Msxi from Singapore. She’s a recent grad from Central Saint Martin, School of Arts and Design. I particularly love her series of illustrations entitled An Effort Most Futile (shown above).

Environmental and elemental art — large-scale and sky art — kinetic and technological art — random happenings and programmed events — multimedia and light shows: ZERO 1, 2, 3 documents the birth, more than ten years ago, of these new tendencies in international art. It collects in one volume the three publications created by the artists’ collaborative, Group Zero, between 1958 and 1961.

We received a note from an online bookshop that just opened up. Counter-Print.co.uk sells a mixture of new and vintage design/art books – nice collection of rare and hard-to-find titles.

Really clever ad campaign for The Zimbabwean newspaper, executed by TBWA\Hunt\Lascaris in Johannesburg. They scooped up 7 awards for the campaign at the 2009 Cannes Lions International Advertising Festival, including the Grand Prix for Outdoor.

The campaign was designed to raise awareness regarding the plight of The Zimbabwean newspaper and consisted of various creative elements, including a billboard, all made up entirely of Zimbabwean dollar bank notes. The newspaper, the brainchild of journalists driven into exile, is committed to providing independent and fair comment on Zimbabwe to Zimbabweans, and has had a ‘luxury’ import duty of over 55% added to it by the Mugabe government, thus making it unaffordable to the average Zimbabwean citizen.
