(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...

Happy Triangle Friday! Being a 3rd year Graphic Design student pretty hectic sometimes (ok, 99.5% of the time!), but recently I’ve had a bit of time to think about the future and what’s going to happen beyond University. It’s pretty scary really because in a sense I’m on a stairway into the unknown, travelling onwards (and hopefully upwards!). I saw this image last week and think that it is not only beautiful and contains a...

Happy Triangle Friday! From something a bit wacky last week (Noisy Jelly) to something delicately beautiful this week: Matthew Shlian‘s paper craft is just amazing. A lot of his work features triangles… I guess it’s just because it’s the best shape 😉 Watch him in action: Wow. I can’t believe how easily he folds it back together at 1.40 – skill! In a way, I kinda feel a cheated because initially I thought he had cut everything...

Happy Triangle Friday! Today Graphique Fantastique has reached 100,000 views, which is awesome – thanks for all of your support! So how to celebrate? A party!? And what do you have at parties…? Jelly (& ice cream) and music! Noisy Jelly is an awesome experiemental collaboration between Marianne Cauvard and Raphael Pluvinage: You can create jellies in a variety of colours and shapes which produce different sounds. When placed on the game board, the fun...
