I’m a huge fan of stop motion and have been ever since I was young, so when I found this video the other day I was immediately excited by it. Rogier Weiland, a designer based in the Netherlands, created it as his latest piece of work for Moleskine notebooks, using the books almost exclusively to create this awesome stop motion animation.
There’s also this rather interesting behind the scenes video that shows the making of the piece. It’s also in stop motion, which is in a way quite fitting, but just think of how much all of those Moleskines would have cost!

Those of you who, like me, are fans of both the fantastic TV series ‘Game of Thrones’ as well as great design will really enjoy this post. If you aren’t a fan of the show or the books it was adapted from, hopefully you’ll just appreciate this awesome set of logo designs.
My final major project on my Art Foundation course shared similarities with the Baseline Magazine project I looked at in the last post. I went into the project wanting to create a book as it was something I hadn’t done before and so came up with a brief to explore and question the use of typography through the use of books.
I produced three books as my final piece which were exhibited below three pieces of text as seen below. Each book contained a collection of screen-printed quotes and definitions which described what had been done to each book and were obscured or altered in some way.
As I said in the last post, yesterday marked the 2012 D&AD Student Awards, so I thought I would use today to show some of my favourite pieces of work from them.
We’ll start with this fantastic piece of packaging design by Ben Lambe for a brief to design a new Scottish Whisky to appeal to an international female consumer. It won a ‘Best of Year’ award.
I am a huge fan of design which is tactile, a physical item which the viewer can actually feel and experience. I’m even more of a fan of this kind of work when it is used to create an element of interaction between the product and its viewer, and this is what H55 and Studio8 Design have done with the two covers below.
Have you ever wondered what your favourite designers like to eat? No? Well I haven’t either, but Baseline Magazine thought we might want to know, so they published this great little book. Baseline asked 28 different designers, including Wim Crouwel and Paula Scher, for their favourite recipes and thoughts on food, with each of the designers having a double page spread in the book for their recipe and an illustration of it by themselves.
This sort of publication is not something you often see in the world of design and I especially like the old school cook book style of the book itself. It also features some great comedic elements in the text from the designers, as Michael Wolff says; “For me, the quality of food in a design company is a good indicator of the quality of imagination and creativity. Ordinary and tasteless food usually means boring work.”
