"For wood joinery, in Italy, we use a technique called 'coda di rondine' (swallowtail). Then you look at the Japanese way of joining wood — to solve the same technical need, we have different approaches." https://www.japantimes.co.jp/life/2024/04/18/style-design/maria-porro-salone-del-mobile/

Wait.

We hate the Calibri typeface? I think I may have missed a memo.

I love this woodwork on the Victoria Bar on Allison Street on the Southside of Glasgow. As the digits say, it dates from 1903.

Found another great Japanese brand called テトぐるみ tetogurumi, creating tetrapod plushes. Those concrete structures can be found on the cost of Japan for wave-dissipation.

Two sides of the same coin... 3D photomontage and 3D single object renders; probably a reflection of my past professional use of the medium as a industrial designer and having done technical archiviz for many years. I am going to be using both of these styles in Sub Orbital Machine to do things I can't express with drawing in ink and graphite.

From my 2000s ar(t)chive...

Illustration for the Dutch ComputerTotaal magazine, for an article about Stichting BREIN, translating to "BRAIN Foundation", a foundation funded by publishers to battle digital piracy.

I don't remember the exact scope of the article, but I guess the foundation threatened legal action to kids who copied CD-ROM games.

Never going to look at the word "Artisanal" the same way again. But that's just me.

Design matters.

Sim, o problema principal é esse. Por uma questão de princípio, todo o trabalho de design a serviço do Estado destinado a ser utilizado publicamente deve ser de utilização livre por todos os portugueses. Afinal de contas, a causa pública exige-o. É que foram os contribuintes que pagaram por todo o pacote gráfico encomendado pelo ex-governo. A partir daí, a relação de confiança está quebrada.

#Portugal #Logo #Logotipo #Governo #Tipografia #Design #DesignGráfico: "A intervenção do design em questões de estado, chamemos-lhe assim, é sempre matéria de grande sensibilidade. Como vimos ao longo deste artigo, o trabalho final é apenas parte de um processo composto por diversas camadas, depende de decisões a diferentes níveis. Outra das vítimas colaterais de toda esta celeuma foi a fonte. Desenhadas por Dino dos Santos, tipógrafo português de renome mundial – como todos os outros envolvidos nos processos deve sublinhar-se – a Portuguesa é uma família tipográfica composta por duas fontes, a Serif e a Sans. A qualidade da fonte, e sobretudo a completude do projecto, é inquestionável, mas a forma como é justificada mostra a forma como se desenha o triângulo entre design, estado e os cidadãos (...)

As fontes Portuguesa foram lançadas com licenças proprietárias e como “uma resposta à necessidade urgente de oferecer maior segurança às plataformas de comunicação do Estado e a toda a informação nelas constante.” Esta ideia da segurança através da criação de uma barreira legal é particularmente ilustrativa do tipo de relação que se estabelece, ou neste caso que não se estabelece. Mais ainda porque o argumento da segurança não faz muito sentido do ponto de vista prático. Qualquer utilizador experiente de internet sabe como é fácil encontrar qualquer fonte no código fonte de um site, e como a maioria dos scammers não está propriamente preocupada com direitos de autor e licenças de tipografias."

Working closely with a wide range of companies, I have developed logos, logotypes, and symbols that are true representations of each brand, complement their particular fields, and resonate with the audience they hope to reach.

I don't mean to be all on this pencil paper game. But American and French flags are two of the worst flags to use when talking about handing over control of the wields oldest underground train network.

It's even more baffling because the Tokyo version of the game uses the union jack to signify the language.

Remember folks, are bad at being icons for language selection as they have meanings.

Going to try creating a sci-fi gun in MagicaCSG. I'm not very experienced in detailed hard-surface modeling, so it's going to be an interesting challenge.

Disclaimer: I hate real-life guns. My sci-fi gun will emit a peace beam. ✌️😉

More progress impressions will follow.

Sci-fi gun update...

I don't know yet which direction this will go, but I notice more and more that adding details is a fine balance between "No, this doesn't work" and "Yeah, I like it!" 🙂

See other posts in this thread for more WIPs.

Sci-fi gun progress...

Added some more parts and greebles. Enjoying it so far. Work will continue tomorrow.

Sci-fi gun progress…

Really enjoying this hard-surface project. Modeling with MagicaCSG is completely non-destructive, so changing or removing any element(s) is super-easy, and all Boolean operations are executed in realtime, complete with automatically added fillets or chamfers.

Once you've experienced SDF modeling, other 3D modeling methods (polygons, NURBS) feel like a previous chapter.

From the ar(t)chive…

3D illustration for a 2006 issue of the Dutch ComputerTotaal magazine, about parental supervision regarding MSN Messenger, which was a popular messaging application at the time.

I made the characters in the style of the MSN icons.

Sure, watches that tell you when you’re walking unsteadily and pocket computer phones that show you the closest pizzeria are swell, but were you around for ResEdit?
