Is your creativity waning? Searching for inspiration, but not finding anything? Or maybe you just need a little time out? Presenting Birthlight by Christian Stangl, it might just be the desired tonic:
This short film by motion designer Christian Stangl is based on thousands of microscopic stills from which these stunning timelapse scenarios emerge. Stangl’s self-made chemical processes perform an endless dance of growing and dissolving, flooding and evaporating, melting and recrystalizing, creating an all together perfectly synced synthesis of sound and picture.
It’s just a little over a week until NASA’s New Horizons space probe makes its closet approach to dwarf planet Pluto. The fun begins in earnest in the weeks following the flyby, when the data collected by the probe reaches Earth.
The landscape photography of New York City based graphic designer Victoria Siemer fractures elements of the original image back upon itself, and the results, among other thoughts I have in response, remind me of some scenes from Christopher Nolan’s 2010 film Inception.
As an eight year old, Daniel Britton, now a graphic designer, was diagnosed as a partial dyslexic, but even then very few people understood the condition, and he was frequently told to concentrate more, or work harder. An experience that is somehow vaguely familiar.
To help raise awareness of the condition, Britton has created a typeface, based on the Helvetica font, aptly titled Dyslexia, that gives others an appreciation of how the learning disability makes reading a difficult and frustrating process.
Britton is currently fund raising so he can create a dyslexia awareness pack for school students, something you can read more about here.
