Nicely put together video (a given really as its from Red Collective) of wildlife photographer/videographer. Bit of super slow mo in there, but still done well.
Pretty stunning video of flying into Queenstown early one morning. That soft light is just beautiful.
Great Illustration! Looks a lot later then 1889.
Have come across another great site the other day - iGNANT - which has a great variety of photography, architecture and design related posts.
In particular this article about Kook Restaurant made me take a closer look. Love how they have incorporated the tree into the restaurant, and also the old skool (but no doubt, new) table is done in a pretty tasteful manner.
Came across Felix Odell's work the other day and came across some of his photographs of holiday homes in Sweden. This one in particular (see images below) struck me as being one that was simple, but effective and cosy - Imagine how good it would be to have an outdoor fireplace that you could sit around at night with family and friends and enjoy the views and night scenery but still be toasty warm?
Nice emotive video showcasing LV's new international city guides.
Beautifully shot video - not my type of final product aesthetically wise, but quite interesting to see his process of producing these aluminum foot stools with just old drink cans and with a pretty basic set up as well. Sponsored by Heineken ironically.
Beautiful series of videos shot by Petr Krejčí showing the construction of handmade shoes and Bohemian Glass. Great transitions between various schemes and ties it all nicely together.
Not sure about the final product from a personal taste point of view with the shoes! But you can see with both videos that the items created, have been created with great love, expertise and care to detail.
Seen something similar on a truck a while back, but this is a bit more mobile. The way that he does the insulation and the choice of soapstone to make sure it doesn't crack is awesome as well.
Another great article on Medium that I recently came across.
In summary: when I ask people for help, I select one or a few targeted people to reach out to, I define the problem, outline what I’d like them to help me with or what I’d like them to do for me, and tell them how much time I think it should take, and I give them enough information to make it easy to answer. As a courtesy, I also like to let folks opt-out if they’re in a busy point in their lives.
I'm finding more and more that Medium is a site that I'm looking forward to checking bi-weekly (not enough content yet for me to be checking it every day). Amazing that this self publishing site has come onto the scene strongly. I'm not sure if its moderated/selected but the quality of the posts are pretty good. Medium, Check it out.
Another nice light fixture that came across whilst looking through bloodandchampagne. Love the use of the natural timber and then just the sliver of light that pops through from the light source. Would love to know who the designer/manufacturer is.
Came across this Tumblr site recently. Has got a nice collection of exterior/interior imagery. Already wasted far to much time trawling through their archive. Here are a few of my favourites to date with more to come over time.
Interesting short documentary on creatives having to give up some of their creativity due to client requests and how they justify and deal with it (usually by channeling it into, personal projects with no holding back on creativity).
