Watch: Ai Weiwei Takes the Ice Bucket Challenge

Unbeige - Thu, 08/21/2014 - 14:51

“Ah yes, the summer of 2014, I remember it well,” you’ll tell your robot grandchildren. “The world lost Elaine StritchRobin Williams—tragic! And everyone was dumping buckets of ice water over their heads.” The latest celebrity to take the ALS Bucket Challenge—the DIY dunk-tank-for-charity viral senssation that involves ice water, a video camera, and the magic of social media—is Ai Weiwei. No word as to whether the Chinese artist made a donation, but he definitely got soaked. Two buckets were required. Watch the scene unfold in the courtyard of his Beijing HQ, much to the delight of onlooking studio assistants.

Quote of Note | Michael Bierut

Unbeige - Thu, 08/21/2014 - 10:29

Paul Rand admitted all his life that he was insecure as a writer. It was his passion for the subject that made him such an effective one. In his day job on Madison Avenue, he had learned the virtues of saying more with less. As a result, Thoughts on Design is almost as simple as a child’s storybook: short, clear sentences; vivid, playful illustrations. Ostensibly is nothing more than a how-to book, illustrated with examples from the designer’s own portfolio. But in reality Thoughts on Design is a manifesto, a call to arms and a ringing definition of what makes good design good. This, perhaps, has never been better than in the book’s most quoted passage, the graceful free verse that begin’s Rand’s essay ‘The Beautiful and the Useful,’ Graphic design, he says, no matter what else it achieves, ‘is not good design if it is irrelevant.’”

-Designer Michael Bierut in the foreword to the new edition of Paul Rand‘s Thoughts on Design, back in print for the first time since the 1970s and published by Chronicle Books

IMGembed Hits Kickstarter to Expand Royalty-free Image Service - Thu, 08/21/2014 - 00:00

Intellectual property rights and compensation for content creators are still important, in an age of appropriation and sharing. Most people would probably be happy to do the right thing, whether it's a case of a modest payment or simply attribution. Last March market leader Getty Images finally faced up to the reality of the current online climate for image use and abandoned its earlier approach, which was to come down hard on those it caught using its images without permission online.

Favorite Thing: Jack Headphone Stand

Unbeige - Wed, 08/20/2014 - 16:11

Nancy Lazarus journeyed to the Javits Center for the summer 2014 edition of NY NOW, the Market for Home + Lifestyle (formerly NYIGF) as the UnBeige judge for the Bloggers’ Choice Awards, which highlights “urgent, odd, and delightful design” from among the more than 150 exhibitors of the Accent on Design category. Here’s her pick.

While scouring the Accent on Design aisles of the NY NOW trade show, which wraps up today, we came across a product that literally stood out: the Jack Headphone Stand, our choice for the Bloggers’ Choice awards. Designed by Brooklyn-based ModProducts (a.k.a. ModKo), the Jack Headphone Stand is the optimal storage and recharging station for headphones and small mobile devices when it’s high time for a digital break. It’s made from polypropylene and rubber in orange, yellow, white, or gray, to fit the color scheme of any desk or night table. All wires remain hidden behind a cable pass-through, leaving you with a clutter-free space. The Jack will make its first stand at retail in time for the holiday shopping season.

The World of Character Design - Wed, 08/20/2014 - 00:00

This type of creation was once exclusively used for the purpose of linking brands with a particular character. However, these characters have since comprehensively outgrown these limitations and are now consumed for their own sake and for their artistic value, regardless of who they represent.

Watch: On the Art and Craft of Art Forgery

Unbeige - Tue, 08/19/2014 - 16:23

When it comes to films about art forgers, woe betide the documentarian who attempts to top Orson Welles‘s delightfully gonzo F is for Fake (1973), which you can—and really should—watch in its mesmerizing entirety at the bottom of this post (what else are late summer afternoons for?). But the directorial trio of Sam Cullman, Jennifer Grausman, Mark Becker have quite the character in career art forger Mark Landis. After he dupes Matthew Leininger, the intrepid museum registrar (currently chief registrar and director of museum services at the Cincinnati Art Museum) will stop at nothing to expose the technically skilled fraudster. The cat-and-mouse game unfolds in Art and Craft, which has been burning up the festival circuit and opens in limited release next month. Behold the trailer:
