NAM for Harbor City Chocolate Trail

This is a really cool campaign that I found on Colossal, which I’ve been meaning to post.  According to Colossal:

First: everything in these photos, liquid typography included, is part of a single photograph, and if you don’t believe it just watch the video. This new series of ads was created by art/design collective NAM […] for the Harbour City Chocolate Trail, a charity project for the Hong Kong Blood Cancer Foundation. The series uses their signature method of suspending objects and people with strings and cables to create weightless environments that appear to be caught mid-explosion. See many more photos and behind the scenes videos of the project here.

The New Yorker: September 24, 2001

Posted last year today, on the 10 year anniversary of the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center.

“Ten years ago, my husband, the cartoonist Art Spiegelman, our daughter, and I stood four blocks away from the second tower as we watched it collapse in excruciatingly slow motion. Later, back in my office, I felt that images were suddenly powerless to help us understand what had happened. The only appropriate solution seemed to be to publish no cover image at all—an all-black cover. Then Art suggested adding the outlines of the two towers, black on black. So from no cover came a perfect image, which conveyed something about the unbearable loss of life, the sudden absence in our skyline, the abrupt tear in the fabric of reality.”

– Art Editor Françoise Mouly on “9/11/2001,” the first New Yorker cover following 9/11.

Residential Tower by James Law Cybertecture

Man, I don’t know about this, guys.  I suppose this residential tower design by James Law Cybertecture looks cool on paper, but just the thought of of actually hanging out in that jutting glass pool is enough to make me feel queasy and dizzy.  Scurry!!

Book Exchange: Come with a Story and Leave with Another

Very clever minimalist ad posters by LOWE-SSP3 for the Colsubsidio Book Exchange Program in Columbia. Can you see both books in each ad?
