The new Tintin movie really pushes the boundaries of computer animation and 3D special effects, but we really love this graphic intro by James Curran. The unofficial title sequence features scenes from each of the 24 books. An excellent use of colour and smooth animation throughout it is well worth a look.
A great time-lapse video of D*Face creating a mural for his recent ‘Going Nowhere Fast’ exhibition.

Everyone remembers their first mobile phone fondly. It is very easy to forget just how far we have come in a relatively short period of time. In this video Vodaphone uses some great 3D projection techniques to illustrate the evolution of mobile phones. From the huge brick phones through to the small smart phone that does everything.
This was my first phone. The Mitsubishi Trium Geo! It was a sturdy build, I lost count the amount of times it dropped… and once I threw it like a Frisbee, it never broke!
I can even send e-mail on the internet
Pretty cool video about the internet. It is kind of hard to believe how far we have come since then. Most of these clips are from the early 1990′s. Website design and development has come a long way since the early days. Website design is still changing a lot with the near introduction of HTML 5, web development is about to get really exciting again.

An interesting video featuring Stefan Sagmeister. The talk is titled “Don’t Take Creativity For Granted”.
Stefan Sagmeister has been producing typography-driven films for a while now, which sprung from the insights in his book Things I’ve Learned in My Life So Far.
Stefan Sagmeister formed the New York-based Sagmeister Inc. in 1993, and has since designed for clients as diverse as the Rolling Stones, HBO, and the Guggenheim Museum. He has earned practically every important international design award.

Peter Lawrence discusses design and how important good graphic design is to your business. Peter thought that the best possible contribution to graphic design he could make was to convince corporate executives that design makes a substantial impact to the bottom line, and it’s the difference between a good business and a great business. He raises some really great points, and discusses multi-disciplinary courses. These courses put business students and graphic designers together for both to get a better understanding of the other’s course and the qualities they can bring to business.
The video is number 1 of a series created by Teknion, called Design Does Matter.

Demo slam is a new web site by Google. The web site is designed to get the public to enter their videos using Google technology. Visitors to the web site judge the best of two videos and a winner is selected. The whole Google slam thing began not so long ago, and its designed to get the public more aware of the features which they offer, but to do so in a fun way. They hope to get people who would normal never watch a demo video watching the user generated content.
What I did find amazing was just how quickly these dodgy SEO guys got onto it. After typing in ‘google slam’ the first entry which came up was for an Search Engine Optimisation company, promising to make you the first result in Google every time. The actual Google web site is called Demo Slam.

What does your desk say about you? This video is pretty good, it asks a number of graphic designers and artists what their desk is like in their studio. Our studio could never look like Vignelli’s desk! We need to see our design work on the walls, we feel its the best way of getting creative inspiration! If you can take a look at the whole project on a wall rather than in many folders on different machines usually you will see the design solution right in front of you.
Being a graphic design agency who deal with print we really liked this video. Its from a Canadian ink makers, who specialise in colour. Its pretty fascinating to see how a simple pigment is mixed to one day become colour that we use on everything from business cards to brochures. Its a special craft that takes time and effort. Its important for designers and agencies to really understand what makes up there ink, and get a full view of the printing process from the very start to the production of their final design. These guys do all kinds of ink including eco-friendly ink with big reductions of harmful chemicals.
