Through The Woods / Fred Rogers Company & PIP Animation

Selection of final plants for the pre-school series Through The Woods - which premiered Monday on the Curious World app.

All design and final artwork was completed within two months.

The style evolved from the initial idea of super clean Charles Harpes inspired flat illustrations to a more three-dimensional and angled final product.

I’ve seen a lot of people complaining about Fantastic Beasts winning an Academy Award when none of the Harry Potter films ever did. And to that I say, “Really?”

We’re specifically talking about an Academy Award for Costume Design. For the most part, the HP films left the characters in their student robes. Simple and efficient, but nothing to really write home about. You have a couple exceptions of great costumes (The Yule Ball costumes, Dumbledore & McGonagall’s robes, etc), but for the most part we had student robes for 7 movies, and whole bunch of clothes off the rack from the Gap.

On the other hand, Fantastic Beasts is a 1920′s period piece with THOUSANDS of extras that all had to be outfitted in period appropriate wear). In an interview recently she talked about the usual rental studios not having enough 20′s apparel for their needs so she sent people scouring the globe to collect them. In addition to that, you have the gorgeous work on things like Graves’ coat, Picquery’s Phoenix dress and headdress, and Queenie’s coat, that was hand woven out of 30,000 feet of silk thread.

AND THEN THERE’S THE INTERNATIONAL CONFEDERATION OF WIZARDS SCENE, WHICH DESERVED THE OSCAR ALL ON ITS OWN

Desk 02 by Artifox

In times of making everything wireless and online, with a minimalistic approach, there are things we don’t need any more when it comes to a desk. But things have been coming up that we hope for, like a neat way of holding the energy cord. Artifox has created the modern and minimalistic Desk 02, that has everything you need and nothing more.

Been playing around with the pen tool, illustrator and photoshop. Life is a little hectic and I think I needed to spend some time reminding myself that things will work out, which ever way that is.(Side note: the font isn’t mine, it’s called Bromello, I am currently in LOVE with this font). Have a good day <3

Navicula pendant lamp by David Trubridge

The Navicula pendant lamp is another nature inspired design by the New Zealand based designer, David Trubridge. The lamp, that just recently got recommended for the Darc Award 2017, is inspired by the many microscopic diatoms that float in the ocean. It is illuminated by a row of LED pin point lights at the inside of the skeleton, that is made of CNC cut Bamboo-Plywood.
