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. Keanu back in April 93 – photography Stephen Hamel – Orlando, Jan 02 – photography Alex Hoerner and Garrett (not too sure who he is) – pre-fall 12 – photography Matthew Brookes (Just as an aside i-D has one of the most interesting editorial twitter feeds I reckon…) Keanu-1432812957-body-image-1432813667 Orlando-1432812957-body-image-1432814256 Garrett-1432812957-body-image-1432815319

Got a Girl

Not too sure exactly Got a Girl is other than quite a cool music collaboration of Mary Winstead and Dan Nakamura in a Serge Gainsbourg style (ish!) – check the link for more details – but anyone ‘connected’ with Scott Pilgrim and Edgar Wright deserves to gets a mention – some stylish photography to boot.

Dave Hill

A mixture of stylised ‘big, epic digital composites’ (HDR possibly) and standard shots with ‘no lighting equipment’…really awesome mix of work – Dave Hill also has nice couple of extras on his site – a behind the scenes of some of his compositions and also a blog

Shit London – Patrick Dalton

Featured in this Saturday’s Guardian weekend magazine 02.07.11 – capturing London in its most raw. The images that the Guardian selected are great (which I have not been able to find from his site) so I have selected a few myself.

“These are photographs of the unintentional human comedy that surround us in the city. It’s the flotsam and jetsam of city life , the overlooked minutiae , the tragic , the grotesque and the basest of base. It’s the adapted posters , the dirty joke on the back of a van , the mispelt signs , the glory hole in the public loo , that weird shop down the end of your road and the knob graffiti strategically placed for maximum effect.” Words and pics from Shit London/Patrick Dalton.

Visit Shit London
Also has a book of that is published by Portico on 7 July – you can get a copy here. (Launch night is on the same eve 6-9pm at The Mill Co Project, Vyner Street E2 9DJ.)

Carlton Brewery by Cornwell

 – seen some other work by these guys on 1983, checked out their site and really like the look of this work they did for Carlton Brewery. Words and pic from their site.

“The Carlton Brewery is one of Melbourne’s largest urban renewal projects. It features commercial, residential and retail environments. As Grocon’s brand and communication advisor, we set up the nomenclature and a brand identity system to support all phases of the project. Our New City Living campaign came out of the project’s Pixel building, the first totally carbon neutral building of its type in Australia.”

pia jane bijkerk – blog

Fantastic blog of Pia Jane Bijkerk – if you want to see lovely work and photographs. In Pia’s own words she is “an internationally acclaimed stylist, photographer and author specializing in interiors, still life & food. She continues to use her home as her workshop and her travels as inspiration and delights in stepping off the beaten path to discover the unexpected for her clients and readers…and divides her time working and living between Sydney, Parisand a houseboat in Amsterdam.”

To give a flavour of her and her work I have selected at random a post that looks great of window displays + installations that  she worked on. Windows featured are: Better Read Than Dead + Newspaper Taxi (in Brisbane, I think), Shearers (in Leichhardt). (Have taken all the work pics out of context, which I hate to do…but if you want to read more check out the link here).

Like the pics of the work as much as the work itself…Words and images from Pia’s site.
