A great promo to attract students into the graduate program at Dare, a large interactive agency in London.

On a related note, this infographic trailer for Waiting for Superman is killer.

Moog releases the Filtatron for iPhone

October 18, 2010

Christopher Jobson

Today Moog releases the Filtatron for the iPhone, probably one of the more advanced sound apps ever made for the iOS platform. I’d be stepping out of my comfort zone to discuss “four-pole resonant Moog Ladders” or that the “sound quality and can be modulated by its own LFO” — I have no idea what this means, but does it sound awesome? Yes. And if I can whip up a follow-up track to Popcorn by Hot Butter using my phone while riding the train, well excuse me if I don’t post for awhile, I’ll be modulating my Moog Ladder.

Paper Alphabet for Sculpture Today

October 13, 2010

Christopher Jobson

From the AIGA Archives, a beautiful alphabet designed by Sonya Dyakova for Phaidon in 2007.

The alphabet sprung from wanting to highlight what makes sculpture different from other art forms. By cutting and folding a flat sheet of paper, a three-dimensional alphabet was devised. A considerable amount of effort went into crafting and arranging the letterforms, each one playfully varying in shape, the depth remaining constant.

The legibility of the type is greatly influenced by the angle from which it is viewed. When viewed directly from above, the edges of the paper create outlines, making the letterforms easy to read.
