I was revisiting an artist series directed by Hillman Curtis today after work slowed down a bit.

Cut and Paste “See What’s Possible” Challenge

By in animation, design, film

For all of you Adobe® nuts out there, I’m sure you’ve been following this little contest held by Cut and Paste and Adobe® to “compose an engaging animation or motion graphic video incorporating the Photoshop brand logo that illustrates the theme of ‘See What’s Possible.’” The participants were only permitted to use Adobe software (Adobe® Photoshop®, Flash®, and/or After Effects® to be exact) to create 15 second long entries.  The resulting short films are outstanding and totally worthy of the Grand Prize!

Here’s an hoorable mention I enjoyed:

House Industries presents Neutraface

By in advertising, design, typography

Neutraface Branding

I haven’t visited House Industries in a good while and was pleasantly surprised when I came across this beauty. This typeface is bold, proud yet not conceited – a face that wears expensive vintage boots and form-fitting leisure jackets but still invites you to catch up over a cup of cappuccino.
