Wanted: Photo Editor Ready to Show Some Muscle

Fri, 01/17/2014 - 04:30

wwe.jpg

Ready to pick a fight? World Wrestling Entertainment is looking for a photo editor to join its pugilistic, Lycra-clad creative team in Stamford, Connecticut. The position includes editing, retouching, and color correcting images for WWE magazine, WWE KIDS magazine, and digital properties. The ideal candidate is a skilled problem-solver armed with an eye for color and composition, strong organizational skills, a positive attitude, and a mean double-underhook mat slam. The ability to name a few WWE wrestlers probably wouldn’t hurt (and no, Junkyard Dog doesn’t count). Did we mention that the company has a state-of-the-art fitness center?

Mark Your Calendar: Isaac Mizrahi at 92Y

Thu, 01/16/2014 - 20:22

Watching the multitalented Isaac Mizrahi converse with flighty QVC hosts who do not understand most of his references is more enjoyable than most network television, and so you won’t want to miss his upcoming appearance at New York’s 92nd Street Y. The fashion designer, business mogul, “masstige” pioneer, raconteur, and sometime cabaret singer will submit to the surgical, this-is-your-life interview stylings of IMG and CFDA vet Fern Mallis, who never fails to draw big crowds for her ongoing “Fashion Icons” series at 92Y. The Mizrahi-Mallis matchup is scheduled for the evening of Tuesday, February 4. Grab your tickets here before the QVC Mafia buys the lot of them. Think of this as our version of Today’s Special Value.

Metropolitan Museum’s Costume Institute to Reopen as ‘Anna Wintour Costume Center’

Wed, 01/15/2014 - 12:02

anna_wIt all began in 1937 with the Museum of Costume Art, a wee institution that, within less than a decade, would be incorporated and renamed as the Costume Institute and become part of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Between then and now, the place has been transformed by forces including Diana Vreeland, the Brooklyn Museum (which transferred its costume collection to the institute in 2009), a little exhibition about Alexander McQueen, the generosity of Lizzie and Jonathan Tisch, and of course, Anna Wintour. The Vogue editor-in-chief–and longtime Met trustee–will get her due when the space occupied by the Costume Institute reopens in May as the Anna Wintour Costume Center (with the Campbell-Bolton-Wintour Brit trifecta, just be grateful that they didn’t go with “Centre”). The Anna Wintour Costume Center will house the department’s exhibition galleries, library, conservation laboratory, research areas, and offices. Meanwhile, the curatorial department itself will continue to be called the Costume Institute.

And Then There Were Five: Vancouver Art Gallery Announces Architectural Shortlist

Mon, 01/13/2014 - 12:25

vag siteWestern Canada’s largest art gallery—and with a permanent collection of more than 10,000 artworks, it’s firmly in art museum territory—is in expansion mode. Planning is underway for a bigger (310,000 square feet), better Vancouver Art Gallery, which will be located on a city-owned site in downtown Vancouver. The aim of the project is “to create an architecturally significant visual art museum that places prominence on artists and art and that celebrates the rich cultural context of Vancouver.” But who will design it? The gallery has narrowed a pool of 75 architectural firms from 16 countries to an all-star shortlist of five: Diller Scofidio + Renfro, Herzog & de Meuron, KPMB Architects, SANAA, and Tod Williams Billie Tsien Architects. Will KPMB convert on the home country advantage? Will Herzog & de Meuron ride their recent triumphs in Watermill and Miami to another commission? Will a field trip to Philly’s Barnes Foundation seal the deal for TWBT? Stay tuned, art and design fans, the announcement of the winning firm is expected this spring.

Thu, 01/09/2014 - 18:24

JR_Art Series_NYCB_EyeJR is coming to Lincoln Center. The French artist, who rocketed to global fame following his 2011 TED Prize win, has created works inspired by the New York City Ballet as part of the NYCB Art Series inagurated last year by the Brooklyn-based artist team known as FAILE. JR photographed around 80 NYCB dancers, and their images will be used to create a large-scale installation that will be displayed in various areas of the David H. Koch Theater, the ballet company’s Lincoln Center home. An enormous image featuring all of the dancers—and spanning some 6,500 square feet, according to NYCB—will be displayed on the theater’s promenade and serve as the centerpiece of the installation. Tickets are now on sale for three special Art Series performances that will take place on January 23, February 7, and February 13, with all tickets priced at $29.

Intel Teams with Opening Ceremony, Barneys, CFDA on Wearable Technology

Tue, 01/07/2014 - 12:30

carol and humberto OCWatch out, Google Glass, there’s an Intel-powered bracelet on the horizon, and it will be designed in collaboration with Opening Ceremony (founders Carol Lim and Humberto Leon are pictured at right) and sold by Barneys New York. The in-the-works “smart bracelet” is part of a broader wearable technology initiative announced by Intel at the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES), which runs through Friday in Las Vegas.

In addition to the product partnership, the company outlined its plan to work with the Council of Fashion Designers of America “to create a community for technology developers and fashion designers to network, match-make, cultivate, and exchange ideas on wearable technology.” The alliance will connect the CFDA’s 400 members with hardware and software developers. “The collaborations we announced today will merge the expertise of two very distinct disciplines of technology and fashion, essential in realizing the vision of prolific adoption of wearable technology,” said Intel’s Ayse Ildeniz in a statement. “Intel’s aim is to initiate sustainable, long-term cooperation between the technology and fashion worlds beginning with today’s announcements.”

Extreme Design Documentary Follows Stanford D.School Students

Mon, 01/06/2014 - 12:30

Design for extreme affordability. That’s the challenge presented by one course at Stanford University’s Institute of Design (better known as the d.school); how students address it—drawing on methods from engineering and industrial design in combination with ideas from the arts, tools from the social sciences, and insights from the business world—is the subject of a new documentary. In Extreme by Design, now available on iTunes, filmmakers Ralph King Jr. and Michael Schwarz follow d.schoolers as they create and test potentially life-saving products for those in the developing countries they visit.

Watch: IKEA, the Final Frontier

Fri, 01/03/2014 - 12:28

In the deepest reaches of an IKEA superstore, no one can hear you scream. OK, so they can hear you, but they cannot be bothered to listen, because who can heed the anguished cries of others when attempting to decide between the Söderhamn (in Replösa? in Isefall?) and the Härnösand, or maybe the Tidafors, but what about the Strandmon (does that still come in Skiftebo)? Grab your morning course of meatballs, pull up an Esbjörn, and treat yourself to Daniel Hubbard‘s dramatic reenactment of the lost-in-IKEA-by-way-of-Alfonso-Cuaron‘s-Gravity experience. We think it’s out of this world.

Pining for the fjords. An image of the Volvo Concept XC Coupe in Norway.

Volvo is keeping its Concept XC Coupe under wraps—mostly. In advance of the big reveal later this month in Detroit at the North American International Auto Show, the company has released a lone image (above), in which the vehicle—”inspired by modern high-tech sports equipment”—plays peek-a-boo with Snøhetta’s Norwegian Wild Reindeer Centre Pavilion in Hjerkinn, Norway. The next phase of Volvo’s curiosity-piquing campaign was to offer a sneak peak at the Concept XC Coupe, the second in a line of three concept cars, to six illustrators: Mark Riddick, Lovisa Burfitt, Blair Frame, David Puckney, Jesper Waldersten, and Gary Barker each had the opportunity to look at and interpret the car. Here’s what they each came up with…

Quote of Note | Robin Derrick

Fri, 01/03/2014 - 05:10

porter logo

“The branding for the logo was designed to make the magazine look like it had been on the shelf for 50 years, and the challenge was to make it look both classical and also capture the digital newsness of the brand all at the same time. The capital-height lower case ‘e’ is given an italic emphasis to feminize the design, and is a subliminal wink towards the online functionality.”

The Missing Ink: Philip Hensher Explores Lost Art of Handwriting

Thu, 01/02/2014 - 19:18

With thank-you note season in full swing, Lauren Palmer take a closer look at the endangered species that is handwriting. Here’s her take on Philip Hensher‘s The Missing Ink, recently released in paperback by Faber & Faber.

missing ink coverBack when I was in kindergarten, I remember entering the classroom on Monday mornings and marveling at the new letter of the alphabet displayed in masking tape in the center of the floor. One huge letterform in either capital or lowercase, print or cursive, to be traced with our tiny steps before our tiny hands put pen to paper. For the next six years, I was taught the art of handwriting through tedious in-class drills and homework assignments. I can look back now and praise my teachers for instructing me on how to write legibly. Yet the years of typing and texting since have turned my script into a hybrid scrawl: messy, unfocused, and decidedly illegible.

Is handwriting inextricably linked to personality? Does poor script mean moral failure, or vice versa? Philip Hensher evaluates these ideas put forth by early graphologists in The Missing Ink. It’s fascinating to think that one’s handwriting was once a signifier of suitability for a job, or a mate. With examples and analysis taken from literature, psychology, and product design, Hensher examines how penmanship “is what registers our individuality, and the mark which our culture has made on us.”

Art Directors Club Convinces Milton Glaser, James Victore to Feed Their Art to Laser Cat

Wed, 01/01/2014 - 01:03

The feline world takeover continues apace, one adorable kitten Vine at a time. Cats have even infiltrated the highest reaches of the creative community, as evidenced by the Laser Cat that has been gobbling up the work of designers such as Stefan Sagmeister, Milton Glaser and Sue Walsh, Kevin O’Callaghan, and James Victore, with plans to project the artworks onto Miami’s Bass Museum of Art. Then it’s onto the moon. Say what?

Laser Cat is an art installation dreamed up by Barcelona-based Hungry Castle, also known as Dave Glass and Kill Cooper. The poptastic duo has joined forces with O’Callaghan, the original Mr. Big Stuff, to create a giant cat armed with powerful “laser” projectors that will be part of the Art Directors Club’s 93rd Annual Awards + Festival of Art and Craft in Advertising and Design, which takes April 7–9 2014 in Miami Beach.
