QR Code Art Studio Released for Not-ugly QR Code Creation

Graphics.com - Fri, 03/07/2014 - 00:00

QR codes have their uses but there is no denying that they are really, really ugly. Which has probably depressed their adoption. So hats off to the unlikely-named developer HruBaSko, which has come up with a solution to make them, if not a thing of beauty, at least considerably less ugly, as well as tossing in a sweet branding opportunity for the firms deploying them. Increased adoption will make Google happy, since as the inventor of this protocol, as well as for barcodes, broad usage dovetails into its grand plan to organize the galaxy's information and sell it to the highest bidder.

Collins Creates New Identity for Internet Week

Unbeige - Wed, 03/05/2014 - 12:27

internet week ny 2

internet week nyHere at UnBeige HQ, every week is Internet week (if the wi-fi goes down for even a few minutes, we become testy and commence the hoarding of foodstuffs), but capitalize that “W” and you’re talking about a “festival of technology, business, and culture” that has been taking place in New York since 2008 and in London since 2010. Each Internet Week consists of hundreds of events that draw thousands of people, and yet the festival’s logos have long been, well, less than cutting-edge—sufficed to say that at one point there was a pixellated apple involved. Then they got Collins on the case. A team that included Brian Collins, Dave Frankel, and Ali Ring looked beyond familiar tech tropes—the slash, the dot, the arrow—and onward to the bracket. A three-dimensional pair is at the core of their flexible new identity for Internet Week. Not only can the brackets open to accommodate copy, photography, and illustrations but their angles play nice with the letterforms involved, all of which can be layered at various weights to simulate a blinking cursor. Keep an eye out for banners real and virtual that herald the next installment of the festival, which gets underway on May 19 in New York.

New U.S. Embassy in London to Showcase 007-Level Security and Style

Unbeige - Tue, 03/04/2014 - 18:50

Having outgrown its home in the Eero Saarinen-designed London Chancery Building, the Embassy of the United States in London is getting a new home. Nancy Lazarus sizes up the project, a transparent, crystalline cube now taking shape on London’s South Bank.

“The U.S. government is taking their design seriously again,” said David Sprouls, president of the New York School of Interior Design. His proof? Under the State Department’s Excellence in Diplomatic Facilities program, the American government is commissioning noted architects and designers to build embassies and consulates worldwide. He spoke briefly at NYSID’s “Design Diplomacy” event last week, where plans for the new London embassy were previewed.

Currently 31 international projects are in the design or construction phase, and these facilities have evolved beyond the purpose-built or modern compounds of earlier U.S. embassies, according to Jerry Withers, project manager at the State Department’s Bureau of Overseas Buildings Operations that manages the program. They’re part of the 2010 Embassy Design and Security Act, whose flexible design standards encourages more local influences and cultures.

“Showcasing and representing America well abroad while still being functional, sustainable and safe”: those are the tall tasks of the embassy design program, Withers said. One of the toughest design challenges is to convey U.S. openness since security requirements have tightened in the wake of overseas incidents.

The new U.S. embassy in London is the most high-profile project, and it began about six years ago, when Kieran Timberlake was awarded the architectural design after an international competition. November 2013 marked the groundbreaking and the opening is slated for 2017.

Quote of Note | Oliviero Toscani

Unbeige - Tue, 03/04/2014 - 12:30

ot“Art is the highest expression of human communication. And by Art I don’t mean only painting or sculpture or the ancient and traditional arts, but above all the modern, mass arts, like: photography, design, fashion, architecture, cinematography and so on.

Creativity is communication. Today the creativity of communication is conditioned by an obsessive search for consensus, in the false belief that consensus is success. Fear of failure always produces mediocrity, because the chosen solution will always be the least risky and the most banal. In most cases, doesn’t even attempt to be original, but wants, rather, to be a mediocre and repetitious replica of it.”

-Photographer Oliviero Toscani in a speech presented last year at the Art Directors Club’s Annual Awards and Festival of Art & Craft in Advertising and Design. His address has recently been made into a newspaper and a series of typographic posters by illustrator Ben Weeks and Underline Studio
