Top 5 Archive — 08

What’s this?

Before our Tip 5 there was our Top 5. These are the archived pages from our 5 weekly hot tips from yesteryear.

1: Sundial Serif

The obscure Indian street artist DAKU has already made quite a name for himself with his shadow typography on facades. Very nice to see beautiful typography applied in this way!! See for yourself.

2: Jake Gyllehael. Or something simular.

The Pudding site is fantastic; boring data, graphs and tables are transformed into click adventures where you can lose your hours. But if we can tip one: The Gyllenhaal Experiment (scroll down a little bit). In other words: do you know how to write the names of pop culture icons? We like.

3: Cool, not original

Children’s drawings have been translated into realistic animals, people, airplanes, etc. by various people for a few years now (for example: LOL! and LOL!). Still, we think it’s a good thing if companies like IKEA are able to bring these kinds of insider concepts to the masses. The masses think that’s cool too, because there were 87,000 entries, drawings by children from all over the world. Look how cool this doll collection is.

4: Obi-Pan Kanobi

Nerd Alert: Le Creuset made Star Wars pans. We repeat: Le Creuset made Star Wars pans. Co-ops are hip. Sneaker manufacturers have been doing it for years, and so have car manufacturers. But now even a luxury pan brand is stepping into the hype. Goes a bit far of course. And if you ask us, only the Pan Solo roasting pan is really cool. Anyway, if you have star chefs, it is not long to wait for matching pans

5: Visual rounds

The yellow festival (ADE) is hardly over, and the orange-red festival (DEMO) is about to explode. Festival might not be the best term for this event, it’s more of a visual happening. Whatever you call it, it sure is interesting. During 24 hours, all advertising will disappear from the 80 display columns at Amsterdam CS to make way for animation, VJ art, Films, shorts; say all the image that moves. The program will probably be announced one of these days. But with names like Studio Feixen and Mirko Borsche in the promo, that’s probably a must! So off to the capital on November 7!
