We had a great response to our first little free giveaway. Two people have been picked at random to receive a signed poster for the upcoming Milton Glasier movie. Congratulations to Paula McGloin and Kyle LaMar – you should receive an email shortly (if you don’t, email us here at hello [at] thestrangeattractor.net).

We have more fun design related giveaways/contests/promotions coming up, so stay tuned. We’re also refining and adding new sections to TSA – we’d love your input on anything you would add, change, etc., so please get in touch. Thanks all for reading!

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.

If you follow design for some years you see collaborations and new studios form between talented people. PIPI combines the styles of Alain Rodriguez and Raphaël Garnier. A good match.
