The future of automobiles is here, packaged in an overly dramatic marketing video. At least we can now hope for a better future.
Adobe’s first sneak peek of their Photoshop CS6 looks really promising. There seems to be a move to stop being a do everything “drawing” platform, and focus back to its namesake: a photo manipulation software. The demo really shows the power of its algorithms!
I dig the darker look as well.
Crazy sh@t! This Thermaltake Level 10 M Mouse is designed by the folks from BMW DesignworksUSA. Expect it to be ergonomic, precise and out this spring, but don’t expect this to be cheap.
Warner Bros. entertainment company, DC Entertainment—home to iconic comic brands DC Comics, Vertigo and MAD—revealed a new brand identity.
A new logo, designed by brand design firm Landor Associates, for both DC Entertainment and DC Comics were revealed.
The new DC Entertainment identity uses a “peel” effect—the ‘D’ is strategically placed over the ‘C’, with the upper right-hand portion of the ‘D’ peeled back to unveil the hidden ‘C’—to “symbolize the duality of the iconic characters that are present within DC Entertainment’s portfolio”, according to a statement.
“The new identity is built for the digital age, and can easily be animated and customized to take full advantage of the interactivity offered across all media platforms,” Nicolas Aparicio, Executive Director at Landor’s Sand Francisco office, said in a statement.
The identity is aimed to create a visual connection among the company, its three brands, its properties, and its stories and characters.
The company will implement the new identity and logo in phases: first, in comic books and graphic novels in March; then a new website dcomics.com/dccomics that will showcase all DC properties, which will also debut in March; and finally, on consumer products, such as film, television, interactive games and merchandise, throughout the rest of year.
Interesting use of the logo, and a reflection that a corporate identity needs to be more dynamic in today’s digital context than a static symbol.
This is card architecture at its best. The purist would call it cheating though!
A really nice design that considers how people use pens/stylus as well as the workflow of going from digital to analog and back again. Good stuff as usual Scott!
