Wieden + Kennedy have just launched a website for Nokia with some collaborations with some great generative artists - marius watz, univeral everything, marcus wendt, MoreSoon and SHFT.
The chaps at WK kindly dropped us a line about it and told us, “We let those guys go pretty crazy visualising the beauty of communication (some datavis, other motion) and also on the site you can play with the site and use your webcam and mic to create generative art.” Check out some ace videos of the project and some awesome artwork in Marius Watz’s Flickr stream.
This year judged by Jasper Goodall, David Carson, magneticNorth’s Brendan Dawes, Framestore CFC’s Mike Milne, Mainframe’s Adam Jenns and Studio AKA’s Philip Hunt, the Graduate Showcase is eagerly anticipated by the design industry and community, with both studios and agents looking to sign promising new talent.
Submissions are open to final-year students on graduate design programmes across the globe in the following categories: Illustration & 2D, Graphic Design, 3D Artwork, Web & Interactive Media, Animation and Video & Broadcast. The deadline for entries is 18 May 2009.
Complete competition details and the entry form can be downloaded from www.computerarts.co.uk
