We praised Tobias Wong back in November on his Citizen Citizen project which sold golden coke spoons and zinc box cutters. We're excited to report we've discovered his main site which features, in addition, this gun bible, a mirror puzzle and these unauthorized Burberry buttons which Burberry then starting using in their ads. via.
Nice work (from summer '05, I know, so shut the fuck up), for Coke from Airside, commissioned by Mother. "The ads show the traditional glass bottles with the logo replaced by
the word Love, written Coke-style. Surrounding the bottles are
beautiful bold coloured patterns emanating like flowers, reminiscent of
the 70s Coke campaigns."
Inside a glass Tommy Gun, Alphonse Capone bottlers loaded top-shelf Polish vodka. Liquor Snob found the distilled grains, "cool to the touch when you first pick it up, but smoky hot when it goes to work." Perfect for a killer New Year's party.
In our continuing series of "What to get the Soulless Wonder in your Life who has Everything," The Spunker presents the sumptuous "Signature Bowl with Sterling Scribe" which, "recalls a Renaissance tradition in which a nobleman shared a goblet of wine with his guests. Each guest would sign their name on the goblet, and thereby record their presence for posterity. Sculptor and designer Michele Oka Doner gives new life to a rich tradition with this unique guestbook in crystal." The tagline continues, "A CRYSTAL BOWL of memories." Perfect for proving to others you're willing to buy your friends and your tastelessness. From the NYT Magazine, Sun, Dec. 11.
"There's nothing worse than seeing an object with a drop shadow effect," soft-rants Kenny Bania, "It makes the entire piece of work look like a two-dimensional cardboard
cut-out...All you have to do is look around
you. Pick out an object in the room you are sitting in right now.
Notice how it has two shadows (an umbra and a pen-umbra...). Notice how the shadows react to the
positioning of the light source. Notice how they react to the
surrounding surfaces. Now recreate it. It's not that hard." Anonymous replied, "I think the shadows in this shot are completely real. Obviously, the cow was tipped over onto white seamless."
Tight work. Alessandro Pautasso, Illustrator. Baroque/Romantic but thoroughly modern graphic aesthetic. Student, but still cool. Shoot, throw in an appropriate headline and logo and this could be an for Italian telephony. What program do you think was used? Via.
