The year I discovered Sagmeister

Hort @ KK Outlet

I have come across Hort’s work, specifically the Nike promotion ‘Witness’ with Lebron James. Basically an agency that really looks like that they still enjoy their work even though they are celebrating being 20 years old – reminds me of the energy of the work of Neasden Control Centre.

So it is great to see they have a free exhibition at the KK Outlet – (KesselsKramer) – found via the always on the money: It’s Nice That.

Exhibition Runs: 12 – 27 September over in Hoxton Square, N1

Film 4 – ManvsMachine

From what I read on It’s Nice That – these are the new Film 4 idents created by ManvsMachine (this link has loads more words and design) and 4Creative. Also check out their (MvsM) Vimeo channel.

“ManvsMachine set out to create a film channel rather than a tv channel, covering all on-air aspects of the brand from idents to OSP and beyond. A custom motion technique, a contemporary take on a classic film strip / projector effect, was developed to span graphic and live-action elements to give the package a visual signature beyond the logo.”

Looks like a dream project – so much reference and source material to play with – seen together on the following shorts, it looks a really strong creative execution – can’t wait to see it live.

Seen via It’s Nice That. Words ManvsMachine.

Converse

Converse’s latest ad campaign – SHOES ARE BORING WEAR SNEAKERS – is pretty special. Love the photography and overall feel of this work. Quite hard to find much information about the designers or photographer – possibly put together by Amplify?

The Church of London

Been aware of The Church of London for a while – still own their Attack the Block issue from Mar ’11 – but just to remind myself of them and the really exciting design work they do with the magazine/publishing arena..

The work for Little White Lies (which is consistently great), Huck and Dainese Legends (only seen on screen) is worth checking out…LWL concept each issue is based upon the feature film (images below from TCOL). A selection of their work…

They also host events in their studio – 71a Leonard St

Port issue 5

Well anything that Matt Willey (Studio 8) does is always worth a mention…so check these 55 seconds of him ‘struggling with the type on the front cover of issue 5 of Port magazine’ – a little glimpse behind the curtain…
