The Art of Adobe

Photoshop & Cool

Photoshop & Cool


Smile, we’re on camera! Event Marketer this week took special note of the Photoshop & You pop-up space that MKTG produced for Adobe in San Francisco earlier this month. The experience, located in the former HANG art gallery, celebrated the art of photography through antique-camera collections, how-to sessions and workshops, and neighborhood photo walks.

Triumph kills it with the Falcon Bullet Motorcycle. This minimal machine is a steel masterpiece. Santa, if you’re listening…

Art Basel in Miami is arguably the most important art show in the states, but in the past couple of years it began to transform into a red carpet, who’s who, seen and be seen, reflection of its former self. Art will always find a canvas so I have faith that Basel won’t get totally swallowed like the fashion world’s Magic Show in Las Vegas.

One of the cool things from 2009’s Basel is Trustocorp. Their signs started by popping up in New York’s financial district and has been recently seen in Detroit and the Dumbo neighborhood in Brooklyn.

Pay attention to the signs in your city, maybe Trustocorp’s winged T logo has been there.

I.D. Magazine is no more

without comments

I_D__Nov09_Cover

Here’s an excerpt from a letter from Jesse Ashlock’s blog (I.D.’s current editor).

“Lately, the i word I’d been thinking about most with regard to I.D. was “individual.” Whatever has changed over the years, I.D. has always been a one-of-a-kind platform for exploring the personalities and processes of individual designers, the needs and desires of the individual human beings designers serve, and the ways in which the common language and logic of design can bring disparate individuals together. In an era of “design thinking” and “human-centered design,” the loss of such a platform leaves a real void. As a contributor remarked to me over the weekend, there are certain stories that just aren’t going to be told anymore. I.D. wasn’t a redundant title in a crowded vertical market, it was truly unique, and though we can blog and tumbl and tweet ourselves silly, I think we all know what’s being lost.”

The Kraken Rum: The Bottle

without comments

A gorgeous spiced rum concept – gloriously executed. Quaint, if a little old ‘flashioned’ website where you can get a natty squid wall poster. Haven’t yet sampled the rum itself, but what a lovely example of a well executed product concept.
Link below!

“Cash for your Warhol”

without comments

Coming to NYC this weekend is an exhibition that includes my pal Geoff “Cash for your Warhol” Hargadon. Inspired by the “Cash for Your House” signs seen in neighborhoods hit by the recession, Geoff had the same Texas company that produces the “Cash for Your House” signs create “Cash for Your Warhol” signs and posted them around Boston and NYC. NOTE: The inset photo, taken by Brandeis University’s Rose Art Museum, hits close to home as the president of Brandeis announced last January that the school would dissolve the museum and sell off its collection.

The service is explained in more detail at the website: http://www.cashforyourwarhol.com/

bread that looks like humans

Bread has long been an art form but this takes it one teensy bit further.
