• Lou Medel, Ralph Steadman and the 26

    / Comments (1)

    Local designer, Lou Medel, embarked on an experimental type project early last year that found him drawing deep inspiration from the work of famed illustrator Ralph Steadman. Medel created a series of 26 custom glyphs that feature bold and chaotic use of line and shape. Despite the abstract nature of these forms, the work comes together as a wonderfully cohesive and unique alphabet. Lou's work ended up in last year's TYPEFORCE 4 Show in Chicago and featured all 26 letters plus a stop motion short on how he created the custom type. The full alphabet was eventually turned into a poster and is being sold on Medel's Etsy shop.

  • Fallon Exits in Style

    Just in case you didn't have the opportunity to see Jimmy Fallon's exit from the Late Night show, we thought we'd recap it here. Fallon teamed up with the whole Muppet crew to do a musical rendition of The Weight as a final exit to his show. This seemed fairly fitting given the musically diverse presence he brought to the show over the past few years.

  • EVENT: AIGA Portland Studio Tour - Nemo Design

    / Comments (0)

    It's time for the second edition of AIGA's studio tour series of 2014. On deck this time are the fabulous folks at Nemo Design. The design firm is driven by the desire to make better experiences, explore the world and seek new boundaries to break. Guess who helped Nike become a huge player in the multi-action sports community, driving the 6.0 brand from $8 million to $300 million? For Nemo, it’s simple: “We run. We ride. We shoot. We cook. We nurture. We draw. We destroy. We build.” We can’t wait to find out how they do it.

    After the event be sure to check out dMob and buy a friend a drink.

    The tour is $10.00 for non-AIGA members and $5 for AIGA members.

    Linden Collective has put the wrap on their latest documentary. The short features Landon Currier, a motocross rider who after suffering a serious injury and undergoing nine surgeries decided to look for ways to give back to the sport he loves. Landon started LCAT to help train and inspire the next generation of riders. This is quite inspiring, and production-wise looks great.

    Sebadoh – State of Mine from Geoff Hoskinson on Vimeo.

    We were so so excited to see this video from Sebadoh pop up on Vimeo a few days ago. It has been so long since we've seen anything from the Lou Barlow side project. The music is just as good as it's always been and filmmaker, Geoff Hoskinson, has done a great job on creating a quirky little video that frames the song so well.

    Kobe's new Nike kick is kind of pretty. A bit tall, but pretty.
