The classic, It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown. I got a rock….
Japan-based design team by the name of Clunky Design created these ready-to-assemble plastic rings. Fun! The masterminds behind Plarings (sounds like engrish, but is actually a very smart name…am I right?) are Kenta Ochiai and Hironori Sato, who wanted people to enjoy making and wearing the rings. And with their geometric, transformer style meets fashion, they are wearable for men and women. Check out their design process here.
Created for Channel 4 news to promote “The Big Art Project,” YES studios concepted this 15 foot (!) typographic structure to be placed in Britain for the general public to interact with and then to be used in print and television spots.
Listen up, coz this is good. It involves mimes, human vending machines and free clothes. Uniqlo, a Japanese-based casual clothing brand, will be promoting their new line of Heat Tech Innerwear next month in Times Square. While most companies would just have reps handing free clothing to people, Uniqlo has an innovative way to distribute their goods. Uniqlo reps dressed in silver bodysuits will be scanning people with a thermometer device that detects cold spots on your body. Then, you go to a giant human vending machine with two mimes inside, press a button, they do a routine and then you get a free outfit. It doesn’t get much better than that. For more info, go here.
Passion Pit update folks. I just came across their video of the song “Sleepyhead” and while the first minute is pretty much the only part worth watching, it is a damn good 60 seconds. Definitely an interesting idea.
Ethereal, vintage, 1960’s looking and fashion inspired. Gemma Booth’s photography is the bee’s knees.
