Le Bleury – 4e année

Elizabeth Laferrière – Art Director and graphic designer working freelance, she creates still and moving images that encompass her poetic, sensitive and spontaneous vision. She plays around with typography, collage, and video, and aspires to move towards set design where she can develop a more comprehensive approach.

We just love her poster series for a bar in Canada – To present their 4th year’s bookings, the bar wanted to share dreamlike images. Here are some portraits where music resides, transforms the minds to the rhythm of its undulations.

Scroll down for a selection of the posters or check out her Behance for more inspiring work

Newspaper Animal Sculpture

Japanese paper artist Chie Hitotsuyama skilfully creates textured sculptures of animals using a technique involving rolled strips of wet newspaper. The unique application of each newspaper segment proves to be an eeffective method of forming the wild fur of snow monkeys or the density of scales found on the back of an iguana. For Hitotsuyama, these details are critical as she seeks to create the most lifelike sculptures possible.

100 Days of Form and Colour

Designer Seth Nickerson took on the 100-day project challenge and the result is amazing. For 100days straight, he designed an abstract composition and shared on his Instagram what he calls 100 Days of Form and Colour.

Seth is a graphic design, art director, and illustrator in Charlottesville, Virginia. On the project, Seth stated that: “Just a daily exercise in form and color. And this is the first. From here on out they might be geometric or organic, but no pictures, no type, no nothing except shapes. And, fair warning, I’m going to post each of them here. They will most likely be sloppy, rushed, and uninspired, and I might regret this by next week. But I’m giving it a shot. Come along for the ride. Or don’t. I won’t be offended if you unfollow. Here goes nothing.”

Jordan Bolton’s iPosters

Manchester-based artist Jordan Bolton creates striking photographic posters inspired by film and music, using only his iPhone. Jordan states that: “The original plan was to use famous lyrics in the artworks but after it turned out to be too expensive to license the words I decided to do the artworks as though they were alternative posters for actual gigs played by influential Manchester bands at influential Manchester venues.”

Jordan describes his style as: Detailed. Colourful. Organised.

Prints are available in A2 and A3 from etsy.com and Amazon.

The universe is not made of atoms; it’s made of tiny stories

Another day, another post, another intern. Today’s intern is Andrea – a third year Graphic Design student at the University of Johannesburg. She loves the beautiful and vibrant city of Johannesburg, (lots of) Fairtrade coffee, and the Tiny Book of Tiny Stories.

The Tiny Book of Tiny Stories is a trilogy collection of poetic short stories, no more than a few lines long. Each haiku-like tale is paired with a thoughtful, hand-drawn illustration. It is compiled by owner and founder of the online collaborative production company hitRECordJoseph Gordon-Levitt and, one of their curators, the ever-illusive Wirrow. hitRECord is self-described as “an open collaborative production company”. Writers, musicians, filmmakers, video editors, animators, illustrators, photographers, and Photo-shoppers all work together and the profits are split 50/50 between the company and the contributing artists.

Book-Covers

These books are pure joy. They bring together art and voices from around the world to unite and tell stories that defy size. Some stories will make you chuckle. Some will break your heart, just a little. Others simply remind you to stop and smell the roses. But don’t just take my word for it. Let these extracts speak for themselves.

Volume 1

The first of the Tiny Stories, published in 2010, contains contributions of over 8,600 submissions from 67 writers and artists.

Volume 2

Published in November 2012, Volume 2 features 62 contributors from some 14,946 contributions.

Volume 3

Volume 3 was published on November 5, 2013, featuring 82 contributors from 35,905 contributions.

Filled with wonder, nonsense, and tiny stories, these books are a delight to page through and treasure. As Dr Seuss states: “I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living; it’s a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope. Which is what I do, and that enables you to laugh at life’s realities”.
