That’s right. A website consisting of neatly photoshopped images of the man, his moustache, a waterfall and a sandwich. Why? No idea. But somehow it’s strangely entertaining. I feel there is a Whitespace photoshop competition in this. Maybe a Burt Reynolds version.
A source of design inspiration for a while now has been FormFiftyFive. Without doubt one of the best design blogs out there. It was founded by a bunch of designers eager to share the cool things they found. Now in a world of thousands of design blogs it still stands above much of the competition. The secret seems to be in the quality of it’s content. Every image used is of exceptional quality and the work featured is interesting and varied. If we had one criticism then it would be that we would like to see more digital projects.
If you are around in Edinburgh at Hogmanay 09/10 then chances are that you will see a MINI dressed as a Highland Cow driving about the streets of Edinburgh. To promote Peter Vardy’s status as the Number one for used MINIs in Scotland Whitespace has created Scottish MINI – a loveable city MINI that has never seen the beautiful Scottish scenery so has decided to travel around Scotland and meet the population. The car was created by Inchmere Design who were the team behind the Innocent Smoothie grass Vans.
Checking out what it’s up to at:
Enter the truly mind blowing, bizarre world of JimCarrey.com – a flash heavy (well, super heavy) site that offers a rich cinematic experience that pretty much sums up Jim Carrey in a couple of clicks. The whole website is made up of a montage of expertly crafted scenes from his movies. Everything has been covered here from Ace Ventura to The Cable Guy to A Series of Unfortunate events and each section is a montage. I know some will balk at the Flash rich site but when you come to look at Jim Carrey’s own website you want something a little bit different. If you want a detailed history of his carer and movie roles then get to IMDB. If you want to experience Jim Carrey, the movie star, then come here. If there is a criticism it’s that the content has been compromised to fit within the Flash scenes but all is forgiven once you click from one section to another and experience one of the roller coaster transitions.
Love great title sequences (sometimes more than the movies they are for) and we love the blog The Art of The Title Sequence. An incredible amount of inspiration on the site which features title sequences from modern films such as Coraline to classic favourites such as Saul Bass’ Vertigo titles. All videos are also available in a iphone friendly quicktime movie format. Which makes us love this site even more!
To help promote St Andrew’s Day, Edinburgh based Whitespace have just created The World Wide Ceilidh for Scotland.org. The aim is to get as many people to join the world’s biggest Scottish country Ceilidh dance for St Andrew’s Day on November the 30th. You can upload you and your partners picture via Facebook or a webcam, customise your dancers from a range of tartans, sporrans and even shoes. Then choose a dance and watch yourself join in the action.
Have spend hours pouring over some fantastic CGI images on the Taylor James website. Tayloe James are experts in image creation whether it be CGI or traditional composition or even mixture of both. It’s interesting that many cars manufacturer now use full CGI’s rather than shoot the product as the results are now so realistic there is no need to have the real thing.
We have been admiring the work of illustrator Matt W. Moore in his site MWM Graphics over the past few days. There some truly mad stuff here.
