One of our recent MA graduates, Sinan Büyükbaş is a very talented guy indeed – one whose skills extend into many different areas, from sound design to video to graphic design. Above are a few images from his latest creative foray, his 3D Kandinsky typeface. More images can be seen here:
And 2 months later I am back with this update:
He went and made it to the front page! :-)
This is a nice tool for interactive drawing. Using Jay’s application you can draw really complex (and cool!) looking images. It’s basically a line drawing tool where you just put dots on the canvas and they create lines – But the trick is, the new point you put gets connected with the nearest dots you already drew. The result is a geometric line explosion and it really looks incredible if you use it the right way (just look at the images). There is a <a title=”web app for sketchy structures” href=”http://jayweeks.com/sketchy-structures-html5-canvas/#/ web application that you can instantly play with and also an Adobe Illustrator Scriptographer script (for the latter, take a look at scriptographer page on how to install and use it- it’s an amazingly good tool for illustrator fans!, you’ll thank me..)
Can anyone tell me why we never see these kind of posters on street of istanbul? let alone istanbul, at least on facebook event pages or something?.. Ok i’ll calm down.. Just check them out and see how they engage you to go to your fav band’s gig..
To design a series of theater posters is a challenging task itself. I know this from my own experience at Purdue University illustrating the entire 2008-2009 season. I had to read each play and come up with bunch of metaphors that aimed to convey the overall ‘feel’ of the play. However, to design a series of theater posters that defies and embodies the ‘third dimension’ is even more challenging. When it is well done results can be astonishing. The series below were done by Alfalfa Studio, which were commissioned by a theater company from Texas. If you are interested in these kind of ‘to the point’ poster design I would recommend you study the God of Opera Poster Designer “Pierre Mendell”.

Daniel Widrig studied architecture in Germany and the UK. After graduating from the Architectural Association in London with a Master’s Degree in Architecture and Urbanism in 2006 , he joined Zaha Hadid Architects where he worked on several major international projects. Since establishing his own studio in London, Widrig has been working on architectural concepts, products, objects and experimental furniture editions.

He is currently artist in residence at the German Academy, Villa Massimo in Rome.
Below are a few examples of Widrig’s investigation into fashion art. The two images above are from the Escapism series (2010/11), shown at the Paris Fashion Week with Iris van Herpen and MGX. The image on the bottom is from the Crystallization series (2010) shown at the Amsterdam Fashion Week, again with Iris Van Herpen and .MGX.

Although Paul Hollingworth’s typographic assemblages do not relate directly to art and computation, I still find that the emergent/organic visual language may create inspirations for the field. View more here.
I changed the wordpress theme on my personal blog just now and so I made a bunch of new images for the header using the visual manipulation distortion filters. Although these have been around forever they are probably still amongst some of the best image deconstruction tools that I know of. Not to mention that they are also open sourced…
Although they still work beautifully even with PS CS5 the VM plugins are kind of hard to come by these days. I have therefore decided to share mine, available from here. These are PC only, as far as I know there never were any made for Mac. Simply unzip and put in the plugins directory of photoshop.
