Nickelodeon has always been a part of my life with shows growing up like You Can’t Do That On Television, The Adventures of Pete and Pete, Doug, Rugrats, Ren & Stimpy, and Salute Your Shorts, to my teenage years with Blues Clues and Sponge Bob, and now Yo Gabba Gabba. We’re all familiar with the splat silhouette with the marker-like font of the logo complimented with it’s vibrant orange. We’re rebranding included an updated logo change to harmonize with the other sister brands of Nick at Night, Nicktoons, Noggin, and The N. You can check the full article on idsgn, which also features stills of Lifelong Friendship Society’s Teen Nick rebranding, which I believe our beloved Mandrews™ was a part of.
I’ve been interested in this movie since I saw the trailer, but I visited the website to find out info on the anticipated Coraline Dunks. Fortunately, the site had more to offer. An awesome interactive site with lot of features including behind the scene video clips, desktop screensaver of beautiful patterning, photo manipulation to put buttons over your eyes, posters and bookmarkers for you to print out. The art direction they took with this movie was impressive. There’s a link to a blog, which has been talking about the Coraline Dunks for all the collectors out there, but explore the site.
I originally didn’t plan on posting any of my trips because they’ve been very rhetorical. I kept going to the same places, doing the same things, not only boring you, but also boring myself. Luckily my friend didn’t answer my response for me to stay at his place and had a pretty good weekend.
!!! two rollerbladers that the exclusives™ have much love for are getting together to do something great for rollerblading. mr. arlo eisenberg himself just posted this teaser on the franco blog (buy some goods while you’re there too) and i am SO down. this is what rollerblading needs… more attention to art, design, and fostering relationships for NEW executions of our old ideas. other skate companies take note!
jj and arlo, please consider this my personal formal request for 1 pair whenever they are ready.
Off register is a traveling show exhibiting experimental printmaking and a show I have been waiting for for the past 3 weeks or so. I was fortunate to see the show which gave me some inspo to hit the school screen printing studio, which reminds me that I need to pay for that fee. Fuck, that means I can’t buy that Hecox print that I’ve been meaning to buy there. Hmm, rent money or a print? Anyway, I have the photos on my flickr page.
Booyah!…and for all you Chicagoans, make a trip out to West Town and check out some prints…even buy a print or two.
I can’t stress enough how much I jock McFetridge and this is one of the reasons why I wish I were back living in LA. Big G and the veteran Ed Fella are having a show at the Redcat Gallery entitled Two Lines Align, an exhibition about “the evolution of graphic design in the context of massive shifts in our visual culture“. The opening reception is this Wednesday and if you could make it out there and meet the artists (if they are there) I will award you the Lucky Bastard award. In fact, I will create you a “Lucky Bastard” 24 x 36 screen printed poster (this part I am serious).
Just Planted is a video series brought to you in part by D-Structure SF. It showcases the a personal profile on the artist featured in the shop/gallery. The first episode interviews Bay Area artist Joshua Lawyer. Created by Jake Wiens.
Recently Electrolychee updated their site starting their page with a desktop, so I thought I’d give this opportunity to mention other design firms that have been getting recognition straight from the Philippines.
We’re Rollin’,They’re Hatin’, is a large-scale contemporary art show that examines the role of Dungeons and Dragons, Escapism and Fantasy in contemporary art and culture. The exhibition is an art show and interactive platform to explore how artists are influenced by fantasy and role playing games. Over 30 artists will create work for the show and dozens more will perform. The show includes several elements and project rooms that will create an unforgettable, hopefully magical, experience for visitors and attendees.
For you Chicago cats, you best represent.
