The following illustrations form a part of a portfolio Murat Palta created for his graduation thesis. It all started 2 years ago with an experiment to blend traditional ‘oriental’ (Ottoman) motifs and contemporary ‘western’ cinema. After a positive response to “Ottoman Star Wars”, he decided to take the theme further, and developed more film posters using the same technique.
GROW is a bike designed by Spanish designer Álex Fernández Camps along with the idea of making a simple, light and quality vehicle to make it easier to ride and learn to ride a bike; but GROW is also designed with a consciousness of the need for durable, quality items, industrially and socially sensitive to what we need to change to better our environment; in this case, using ideas, designs, solutions and facts.
This light and high quality aluminum bicycle has an adjustable seat, handle and also adjusts the length of the frame.
Because the bicycle grows in size, it can be used by the same child for twice the time; using 1 bike instead of 2.5. The advantage of GROW, apart from reduced economical and ecological costs along the whole of its life cycle, is a much better ergonomic adjustment for the user. Kids often ride a too small or too big bike for quite a long time which is not healthy.
bruce mau design: redesigning canada for the 21st century
To most people, Canada is known primarily for its maple syrup, beavers and hockey. however, like any stereotype, these images fail to represent the 21st century cultural importance of the country.
Canadian innovation studio bruce mau design (BMD) in collaboration with the arts and culture radio program studio 360 with kurt andersen has redesigned the brand to celebrate and accurately depict the country in the 21st century.
Modern icons such as Justin Bieber, the Blackberry phone, and socialized health care, alongside scenic panoramas and portraits, are utilized in a campaign that aims to re-contextualize a country whose reputation is foremost of lumberjacks and igloos.
By utilizing the the canadian flag and its two red stripes as a frame to be filled, the branding campaign showcases the country’s influential imagery and landscapes, creating a new identity free of its traditional clichés.
Billboards, a passport stamp, conference backdrops, and posters are just a few of the many media in which the project collaborators envision canada’s redesign to be expressed.
