The Chromosphereteam have done a spectacular investigation into the form of our universe. Forms in Nature: Understanding Our Universe is an audiovisual meditation on mankind’s scientific achievements and the wonders of the natural world. This film celebrates how science deepens our connection to the universe with study and curiosity. The animation pays homage the the purely captivating circle form, take a look!
It all started with a single idea – the circle. Let Nicework show you the way forward to communicate your brand more effectively.
MOCA is an architecture and design office working out of São Luís, Brazil. Creation, for MOCA Architecture, is to organise space possibilities within an environment. Each unique project generates a new composition, uniting visuality and results in a functional way.
Working with the concept of form/counter form and a modernist aesthetic, Miligrama Design’s Rebeca Prado, Rodrigo Gondim and Victor Garcia created a modular logotype, where each empty spaces combination generates a different composition. As an expansion of this system they utilised the typography itself as pattern, where the empty spaces become filled shapes on the stationery verse.
Efil Türk created a series of posters to visualise the most commonly acknowledged principles of design, with great efficacy. Her poster range reveals just how useful and critical these principles are to design. Paying heed to the simple principles of balance, hierarchy, pattern, rhythm, space, proportion, emphasis, movement, contrast and unity, goes a long way – and will also make any designer shrivel with delight!

We have long been following the musings of Chris Hadfield. Astounding us again on the eve of his return to Earth, the Canadian astronaut released a beautifully made video of himself performing a 1969 classic – Bowie’s ‘Space Oddity’.
Singing “I’m floating in a most peculiar way” whilst actually floating up in space, Hadfield shows us again how he has won the hearts of the Twitterverse.
He was even badass enough to organise an impromptu space walk by Americans Chris Cassidy and Tom Marshburn, who replaced an ammonia pump on the station’s P6 truss.
After five months in space, he has safely returned home from the ISS and will be relieved by Russian cosmonaut Pavel Vinogradov. Sounds like he’s really enjoying some common earthly pleasures like a taking hot showers, and chilling in a field in Kazakstan. The usual.
