Bradley G Munkowitz, AKA Gmunk, has reemerged after spending all of 2010 directing a small team of motion designers to concept/design/execute 12 minutes of holographic content for TRON: Legacy. His work never fails to amaze, and the new site is chock-full.

Euthanasia Coaster

22 May 2011

Euthanasia Coaster” is a hypothetic euthanasia machine in the form of a roller coaster, engineered to humanely – with elegance and euphoria – take the life of a human being. Riding the coaster’s track, the rider is subjected to a series of intensive motion elements that induce various unique experiences: from euphoria to thrill, and from tunnel vision to loss of consciousness, and, eventually, death.

Design, engineering: Julijonas Urbonas
Health issues: Dr. Michael Gresty, Spatial Disorientation Lab, Imperial College, London
Model making: Paulius Vitkauskas
Photography: Aistė Valiūtė and Daumantas Plechavičius

Maayan Pearl

19 May 2011

Maayan Pearl was an AD at I.D and is now at Businessweek. See the pattern? I met these girls earlier this week and aside from being amazing designers, are just plain awesome people.  Her present and past work ranges from editorial design to book covers to illustration / type.  I don’t even know what to say about these posts anymore except that some designers are annoyingly good.

Jennifer Daniel

18 May 2011

You’ve probably seen Jennifer Daniel’s work before. NY Times, Good, the usual suspects of good taste. There’s a heaping pile of humor in most of what she does, which they don’t teach in art school. I’d love to see her high school notebook doodles.

Emily Keegin

A little break after being busy but I’m hopefully back on a regular basis. This is Emily Keegin. She does some wonderful things with objects and a camera.

Alex Box

16 May 2011

Alex Box studied and exhibited as an installation artist before training to become a make-up artist, with her main focus on relationships between the body and the environment. As a make-up artist, she went on to explore this relationship between art, science, nature and the magical. Never viewing the face as a limitation, but rather as a canvas with no boundary, Alex creates looks for designers including Gareth Pugh, Alexander McQueen, Biba and Chanel. She is also the Creative Director for the make-up brand she developed, Illamasqua.
