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 information elsewhere. I just think they look pretty swish – simple and clever….
… oh, and all feature triangles so they’re approved by me
I also read in an interview with Derek that he is a night owl, working best between 11pm and 3am – just like me!
A nice little set there – I’m interested to find out what they’re actually for so I’ll keep an eye out for that. In the meantime, check out more of Derek’s simply awesome work here (under the alias of Network Osaka).
I hope you all have a tri-tastic weekend. Got anything triangular to share? (Fancy making your own Derek Kim inspired posters?) I’d love to see them so get in touch (read more here).
Welcome to the weekend – happy Triangle Friday! I follow over 200 blogs (ridiculous, I know!) and one of my recent favourites is Geometry Daily. It’s a tumblr blog on which Tilman, a Graphic Designer from Germany, creates and posts a new geometric minimal composition everyday. Triangles are classed under the geometric family, and so feature in a lot of Tilman’s creations which makes me happy!
Feast your eyes on these:
From simple outlines…
.. to optical illusions…
… structural patterns…
… and just nice looking triangles.
I love seeing a new addition every day – such a great idea to help to stay creative and produce such different visuals from essentially just lines, shapes, shading and colours! I wish I could commit and stick to doing something small and creative everyday but I find it hard enough to sort a weekly post just recently haha
If like me, you love geometric shapes too, I definitely recommend following Tilman’s tumblr blog!
I hope you all have a tri-tastic weekend. Got anything triangular to share? I’d love to see it so get in touch (read more here).
Happy Triangle Friday! It’s turned very autumny in the last couple of days; the nights are drawing in and there’s lots of lovely colourful leaves scattered on the pavements. The only downside is the cold – winter is definitely on it’s way!
I’ve been quite (VERY) busy with Uni work this week (again) and I was just going to post a photo and an excuse/apology, but as I walked back from the studio I had an idea:
I hope you like them because I must have looked crazy (no change there) shaping piles of leaves into triangles haha! I also did a video as it’s quite windy, so you can have the full effect – it’s as if you were there with me
I just did these quickly before it got dark, but I’m sure you can do a better version – send them to me! I’d love to see them so get in touch (read more here). I hope you all have a tri-tastic weekend.
P.s. I promise I will come up with something better next week
Happy Triangle Friday! For me, today doesn’t feel like a Friday (what does a Friday ‘feel’ like anyway?), but looking at this cover for Novum magazine definitely got me in the Tri Fri mood:
Novum is a German Graphic Design magazine which began as ‘Gebrauchsgrafik’ (German for advertising art) back in 1924. As far as I know, it’s not available to buy single issues in the UK (but you can subscribe) which is a shame.
In 2011, Hamburg based studio, Paperlux, were commissioned to design the November cover and they went all out. Inspired by Buckminster Fuller’s geodesic dome, not only do these covers look tri-tastic, but they are gymnasts! They can twist and turn and flex thanks to the amazing intricate die-cutting:
There is a fold line along every side of the 1000 brightly coloured triangles which make up the cover’s patterns…
The printing process was even filmed:
Apparently when this idea was being developed Paperlux where told by many that it was “in no way possible,” but obviously they proved everyone wrong and it turned out to be AMAZING! They’ve really pushed the boundaries of magazine design in my opinion. I could probably be kept amused for hours by one of these covers, but the limited edition of 15,000 copies sold out – no surprise there! Maybe I will come across one in the future, but until then I guess I will just have to keep watching the video like the triangle loser I am!
It’s great to see that triangles are helping to ‘pave the way’ for new innovative ideas. Has something caught your tri-tention recently? I’d love to see it. Read more here and don’t forget to join in with #trianglefriday on twitter.
Happy Triangle Friday! Sorry, I know it’s a bit late in the day – only 30mins left of Tri Fri infact, but the wait has been worth it, I promise. This week I’m sharing the work of a lady who could possibly love triangles more than I do!
Studio Moross is triangle central, which makes studio director Kate Moross the triangle queen!
Kate’s work is simple, bold and energetic. She uses shapes and colour to create patterns and funky designs which make great t-shirts…
… wouldn’t you agree? Available for purchase in Kate’s shop - just incase you feel the need to purchase one…. for me (I would be super super happy to accept it). But it doesn’t end there – she is a lady of many talents. From art direction to logos, I don’t think there’s anything she can’t do! Did I mention that she designed a pair of Adidas trainers for the 2012 Olympics…
Pretttttty impressive, hey? Her work is just so funky and fresh. I love this amazing illustration produced for a Converse campaign:
I also love the jet jacket which was a limited edition of 50 and a collaboration with Rebecca Turbow. From the print of the back to the tags and packaging – all triangular!
Kate also collaborated with Silver Spoon Attire to sprinkle some of her triangle magic on pop up shop, 143. She’s pretty unstoppable and able to turn her creative hand to anything! I can’t wait to see more from Kate and Studio Moross – definitely one to watch…
