If you’re into intense cinematic visuals, destructive covers of timeless classics and in your face rhythmic pacing then you’ll enjoy this trailer for the upcoming movie The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo. We first spotted this trailer during the opening of Planet of the Apes and you really have to see it in theatres on the biggest screen imaginable to get the full soul penetration that comes along with it. The soundtrack for the trailer is a cover of Led Zeppelin’s Immigrant Song, the latest piece of work by Trent Reznor and Karen O.
Award winning design studio, ENESS, has shared their latest work on Vimeo. MÖBIUS is a sculpture they created that simulates a triangle sinking and rotating into the ground. There is a total of 21 pieces to MÖBIUS and they comprised this video of stop motion photographs. Video is quite hypnotizing, when I watched it, my eyes were fixed on the cyclical movement. It reminded me of staring at the wave machines in physics class.
Freelance design artist and photographer Viktor Hertz from Uppsala, Sweden designed this collection of “honest logos” which reveal the actual content of the company. This is a pretty funny concept but also in some cases a bold statement towards the idea of marketing and bending the truth for huge companies around the world.
Thomas Pavitte couldn’t find the record for the most complicated dot to dot drawing so he decided to set it himself. Naturally you’d come to the conclusion that the Mona Lisa is the perfect subject for this project. The drawing took 6,239 dots to complete and was created on an A0 size poster, this video shows a 9 hour timelapse of Thomas connecting the dots to reveal the intricate line painting.
Please forgive me for posting two Hedi Slimane posts, back to back, but these photos are much to awesome. Frances Bean Cobain is the daughter of the late rockstar Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love.

Envision is a film that takes place inside a box. What can possibly happen inside a box? You can experience a sensory manipulation that’ll knock your retinas into the atmosphere. We love this video because it left the viewers wondering how it was made. After Effects? Projection mapping? 3DS Max? Module 8? The comments are piling up.

To pay tribute to Amy, he has re-released the set on his photo diary with a few additional photos that have not been published before.
Sculpter Ron van der Ende from the Netherlands sculpts objects from scraps of wood that he finds on the street. The most impressive part of these pieces is that none of them require any painting, he matches the colours of wood he finds to the section of the object he is modeling, which is what gives the end result a raw and industrial look. Not bad for not having to spend any cash on art supplies.

Since the app development boom of late ’07 and early ’08 the internet has seen a new style of webdesign that is largely focused on showcasing the features of smartphone applications. These include oversized photos of the iPhone, tons of icons, and social media links. Nizo is a camera app for the iPhone that captures all the charm that vintage Super 8 films can deliver. The website for this application has received a lot of kudos from the web design world because it is so original and takes a drastic departure from the previously mentioned style. This website is one that you have to play with for yourself. www.nizoapp.com
A great inspiration for design and typography layout that makes you think outside of the box, or better yet that there is no box at all. These are really cool design concepts that were created by Herman Chaneco for Brent Weeks’ The Night Angel trilogy of novels. The title is cut out and folded in a way that casts shadows of a ninja which represents the warrior’s stealth fighting techniques and relates to the novel’s plot.
