Arist and illustrator Karina Eibatova (previously) just partnered with LUX Cards to create this phenomenal set of playing cards inspired by her bird and feather drawings. The cards will be printed by the United States Playing Card Company on official Bicycle card stock. The deck is called AVES (Latin and Spanish for birds) and is quickly gaining steam over on, yes of course, Kickstarter. Couldn’t back this quick enough.

Michigan-based author and illustrator Mark Crilley has been working on a series of “realism challenges” on his YouTube channel. In his third installment he tackled the realistic drawing of a torn playing card. Pretty incredible. (via boing boing, thnx brian!)

Solitaire “Win” Screen Constructed from Over 1,000 3D Playing Cards

August 23, 2011

Christopher Jobson

Creative duo Lars Marcus Vedeler and Theo Tveterås of Oslo, Norway have come together to form the experimental design team Skrekkøgle that I was originally tempted to call an art collective, however via their website they suggest otherwise.

We don’t think of ourselves as artists, as we come from a product/interaction design background. What we see ourselves as is a studio that does what it very well pleases, experimenting with products and electronics and the like, not necessarily being tied to a client.

Sounds like every designers dream to me. A number of their projects have bounced around the blogs lately, my favorite being this hilarious three-dimensional sculpture of the win screen for Windows Solitaire. Also check out their exceedingly clever big money project that makes nearby objects look tiny by placing them next to an enormous replica of the 50 Euro cent piece and photographing them using using tilt-shift photography. I can’t wait to see what they come up with next. Reading their blog they seem to fancy Colossal—what’s up guys? (via quipsologies)

Geodesic Spheres Made from Recycled Materials by Nick Sayers

August 16, 2011

Christopher Jobson

Graphic designer Nick Sayers has mastered the art of geodesic sphere making, using materials ranging from bicycle wheels to tape measurers. These are some of my favorites including a light made with 270 poker playing cards, one from 120 British rail tickets, and another constructed with 60 slotted plastic Coke bottles. All of his spheres are made without glue or adhesive relying solely on strategically placed cuts in the materials to hold everything together. (via make)

Bang Your Own Drum: Identity Work by The Consult

April 26, 2011

Christopher Jobson

It’s been a long, long time since I’ve posted any identity projects and I’m happy to break that drought with this clever identity work by The Consult for communications firm Bang Your Own Drum. The business cards are embedded with a taught surface suitable for drumming with a dual-purpose drum stick pencil. (via designspiration)
