Recently Dirty Mouse was asked by Samsung to take part in a creative exercise called ‘The Now’ Project, whereby we had to take snaps on our camera phone of what we thought was ‘the now’. We were asked to help launch the new competition and we have been out snapping and uploading prior to the public launch. It’s actually been quite fun. Anyway, you can get involved on this now and win a spiffing new Samsung Wave II phone if your image is voted as being in the top 25 by the public. The whole thing is done via a neat Facebook app, where you can find out more about the project and the prize. Oh, the winning shots will be exhibited at the Design Museum in March too.
Wowsers, that’s some nice work from Mark Goss. Not sure I’d personally have one of those tatts, but they do look cool.
Dirty Mouse was asked to write a couple of lines to promote a competition run by Havana Club called Inspired Ingenuity.
Mash Creative’s ‘Really Useful’ poster series builds on their precursor ‘State of the Obvious’ collection, and extends the philosophy and thinking behind it. Take the ubiquitous poster, theme it with useful information relevant to a creative studio, and set it in such a way that it becomes both art and tool.
The careful grid structure, colour palette, and glorious typesetting on the 200gsm Giclée print will no doubt have creative brains drooling, and the whole set would look tremendous in any design studio. But I’m pretty sure that beyond actually looking the part, they are damn useful. Take a close look at the detail on each one; useful snippits of information that provide a reference point. Simple yet useful.
The four themed posters include Greenwhich Mean Time, Emoticons, Print Sizes and Metric Conversion information and are available in A0, A1 and A2 sizes exclusively from www.print-process.com
Inspired Ingenuity is challenging artists, musicians and other creative talents to take the everyday and turn it into something special. A winner will be picked each month, and the final winner will win a trip to Cuba. The title of the project - Inspired Ingenuity - is a reference to the spirit of the people of Havana, who pride themselves on their ability to create what they need from what they have. Find out more on their Facebook page.
