The year I discovered Sagmeister

Siri Melchior

Some fantastic illustrations and animations that appear throughout and define the look of the CBBC children’s show Show Me, Show Me. The show itself is fabulous and the illustrative style is brilliantly light, emotive and engaging.

Having done a little research – the illustrations/animations (for Show Me, Show Me) were created when Siri was at Trunk (animation company) which she co-founded. Now at her new venture since 2013 (which she co-founded with Marie Bro) working at (the award winning) Ladybird Films.

NHS.UK Alpha

NHS.UK Alpha – A project to ‘better digital and technology delivery to improve services to patients, to support new ways of providing care, to help save time and money to be spent on those most in need.’

Will read more into this – but on the face of it – looks like this will be the start of the NHS following in the steps of GOV.UK.

Solid Steel Radio

Simple way of using a lead image for promotion/branding on Twitter and on their website by Solid Steel Radio. (Website however is really tricky to navigate around on a laptop – presume it is designed for touch screens?) – For those wanting to hear the sounds of Avalon Emerson check out her Soundcloud page.

Rough Trade vs Solid Steel Radio

A few twitter ads for @RoughTrade and @SolidSteelRadio twitter promotion posts over the last bit of time – a little bit of transparent colour overlay – simple, styled…

Ordnance Survey

Although these are a little low quality – Ordnance Survey maps always beautiful. Have to admit I know absolutely nothing about the process of how these are created…hmmm..

Doomtree

Came across Doomtree via the Distraction Pieces podcast from Scroobius Pip with POS and Dessa – (these podcasts continue to deliver, do check them out). Anyhow – Doomtree a Minneapolis hiphop collective, awesome sounds, I would also recommend Dessa’s Parts of Speech album – set here from a session Doomtree recorded at KEXP launching their No Kings album back in 2012.

Dan Kitchener

Took this photo on my travels when walking through the badlands of Bedminister (Bristol) on a Sunday morning a few months back… proper street-artistry from Dan Kitchener…there is something to be said for street-art – it can surprise and blow you away whilst you are doing something mundane like going to the shops…

i-D covers 93-94

I am spotting a theme here – i-D is 35 so every post of theirs has 35 things – best of etc..

Getting past that – here are 3 awesome front covers from 93-94. I have looked but I cannot work out who the art-director/creative director was for these covers – but they really are amazing – 20 years old but far more interesting than the 35 model concept they have chosen to run with for the current edition.

Sonic, Jan 93 – Naomi, Sept 93 – Amber, Mar 94

i-D is 35

i-D is 35 years old! I can’t remember how long it took me to realise the connection of the front cover feature image and the masthead – too long. Here are a few of portraits from i-D’s 35 feature of profiles of actors, models before they were famous (although not really strictly true). Some of the portraits are a little meh – but these are the best.
