Happy Triangle Friday! On Sunday my tutor, Barrie, sent me an email about a triangle drawing app. I hadn’t seen it before so I thought I should investigate… With this as the icon, I was excited. Bold and striking – i love triangle patterns! The Triangle draw app, developed by Simon Strandgaard, allows you to create simple, black and white drawings made from triangles.   Users can create random geometric shapes, letterforms and patterns. Controversially, I’m...

Happy Triangle Friday! Just a quick one this week as I’m quite busy, but hopefully it will brighten your weekend: Artist and lighting designer from Denmark, Birgit Ostergaard’s B2 triangle lamp caught my eye. Bright, simple and tri-tastic, the only thing preventing me from buying one of these is the price – £379.99 eeeek! Still, I can window shop for free 🙂 Until next week, I hope you guys have a tri-tastic weekend. As always, get...

Happy Triangle Friday! Today I begin with a quote from one of my tutors: ‘Triangles will save the world.’ – John Stocker 2013. John is a very knowledgable man, so obviously it’s 100% true. Remember, you heard it here first! But until then, triangles will save your Friday evening. I’ve been following the work of Illustrator Niki Pilkington for a while now and I can’t get enough of it: Her lifelike pencil illustrations mixed with...

(So I scheduled this post for last night at 9PM and it’s taken me until now to realise that it didn’t post! So sorry, but looks like it’s Triangle Saturday today haha) Happy Triangle Friday! You might have seen my posts about my room being emptied/ now empty. I’ve been living without my possessions as an experiment to see what it feels like and if I actually need all of my stuff. The findings? I...

Happy Triangle Friday! The other evening advertising student, Adam Holcroft, tweeted me saying ‘saw this and thought of you’ with a link. I didn’t really know what to expect, but felt like living life on the edge opened it to find this: Krystall is a branding and packaging project about a triangular chocolate bar by Riccardo Carlet. Triangles and chocolate? Possibly the best combination ever! Obviously there is already everyone’s favourite triangular bar, Toblerone, but...

Happy Triangle Friday! So yesterday was Valentines Day. Whatever your view (retail gimmick or romantic celebration), in the spirit of love, I found the perfect tutorial on Design & Paper which shows you how to make this: Take some triangles… … and make a cool heart 🙂 Simple, effective and looks great in a frame! You could use patterned paper, magazine cut outs or photos of that special someone to create a personal and original piece. And...

Happy Triangle Friday! This week, I’ve been working with brightly coloured triangles for my D&AD brief. The other week, during my research, I came across this set of Tangram notebooks by Tuğrul Peker. I think they’re pretty awesome:                         So 2 of the notebooks aren’t triangular, but 5 are! Each has a different type of paper – big lines, small lines, dotted, gridded and plain. This...

Happy Triangle Friday everyone! This week I’ve been working with bright coloured paper for a competition brief, so I thought Mademoiselle Maurice’s work was quite fitting: Her colourful origami street art brightens walls around Paris and I love it! It reminds me of Triangle Friday #18, where I used leaves to create a triangle. Watch Madamoiselle Maurice create her tri-tastic work: She also collaborated on a project titled ‘Urban Nature‘. The 3 artists involved have...

It’s Friday – you know what that means! Happy Triangle Friday everyone! There are quite a few geometric fonts popping up recently, however I think my favourite has to be Geomas  by Josip Kelava: Josip has produced 2 different weights, so from the simpler weight… … to the tri-overload weight… …They’re both pretty awesome if you ask me! Geomas is available to buy from hand made font. I hope that’s inspired you to have a tri-tastic...

Happy Triangle Friday everyone! I found these animations by Matthew DiVito the other night and haven’t stopped looking at them since! They’re pretty mesmerizing: I wish I could animate things! If that wasn’t enough for you, check out more on his tumblr! I hope that’s inspired you to have a tri-tastic weekend. Got anything triangular to share with the world? I’d love to see it so get in touch (read more here).

Happy Triangle Friday! My course mate, Talveer, showed me these polygonal drawings by Jean-Michel Verbeeck which are awesome and so I thought I would share them with you guys: A goose… … an elephant… … a wolf… …a ram… … and a horse. 3D animals constructed from triangles – great idea. I also love the use of black and white – simple, elegant and the stripes add an extra dimension too. I can think of loads of...

Happy Tri Fri everyone! As I mentioned the other day, I’m pretty pre-occupied with a deadline at the moment so it’s a bit quiet blogging-wise but of course I have a bit of time to appreciate triangles today! I found this set of posters by Derek Kim: If I’m honest, I don’t really know what they’re for as the writing is too small for me to read & I haven’t been able to find any...

Happy Tri Fri! So it’s the 28th today, which means Christmas has now been and gone without a flake of snow. But don’t worry – we can have our own snow without all of the coldness and disruption because I found this app by Ideas Factory: Basically, you enter your name and using some kind of maths, it generates a snowflake which is unique to your name! How cool is that? Try it for yourself...

Happy Triangle Friday! So with it being the last Friday before christmas, I thought this was relevant: This is a Sierpinski triangle. I first came across this when I was researching the never ending question, ‘How long is a piece of string’ for my conflict project earlier this year. The Sierpinski triangle can be described as a fractal. ‘A what?’ you say. Basically, a fractal is a geometric object that is similar to itself on...

Happy Tri Fri! It was hard for me (as I’m usually a scrooge), but this week I’ve come to the conclusion that I can’t ignore Christmas for any longer thanks to this book: Triangle trees… … triangle birds and triangle boats. This is ‘The Fir Tree’ which is a traditional Danish Christmas story by Hans Christian Andersen. This particular edition was tri-tastically illustrated by Sanna Annukka (half Finnish/half English). During her childhood, she spent many summers in...
