An Airborne Village of Stacking Vertical Homes at the Brooklyn Children’s Museum | Colossal
"Sky Villages, designed by James Paulius, is an interactive installation at the SPARK Brooklyn Children’s Museum. The play center features several stackable modules that can be rearranged as expanding homes—wooden dwellings floating between clouds in an aquamarine sky. The imaginative play area aims to educate children about our planet’s constantly evolving population, offering a space for airborne ideas.

“As Earth’s population increases, we may look to the atmosphere for inhabitable space,” said Paulius. “Sky Villages presents the possibility to dwell in the sky in modular architecture that can be added or removed as populations increase or decrease. Dwelling units are prefabricated with the intent of reuse rather than discardment. When a unit no longer fits the particular needs of its location, it can be moved elsewhere for a new family to reside in. Constantly evolving, these structures accommodate the ever-changing tendencies of humanity and nature.”

The toy homes for Sky Villages were fabricated from wood reclaimed from water towers in Manhattan. You can see more of Paulius’ block-based projects on his portfolio site and Instagram."

Blog - Wolff Olins Blog - A new flag for Britain
"We approached the challenge in a few ways:

Weather responsive flag
Similar to the physical version that flaps in the wind, our new flag responds to the British weather.


Patchwork flag
The old flag was designed as a two-colour solution because of reproduction constraints. What if we use different colours and materials to create a flag that represents the different people and communities that make up Britain? Plastic, gold and new threads are woven into the design. Some of the colours have been taken from the Royal Standard.


Designer flag
The UK is full of brilliant designers. Let’s collaborate with Peter Saville or Paul Smith to design an iconic flag.


Please note, these have not been designed by Peter or Paul—they are nasty ripoffs.

3D flag
Who needs a flag anyway? The Romans had a golden eagle on a pole and they ran the world for 500 years. What about a 3D flag based on the angles proposed in the original Union Jack? Imagine our victorious athletes holding aloft Britain’s orb.


Internet flag
What about all those little flags that are flown across the internet? We need a flag that has been optimised for a new digital context. Our animated gif flag symbolises Britain as the meeting place for people from anywhere in the digital and physical realm.


Cool flag
And what about a flag that is just cool.
Pink = Northern Ireland
Green= Wales
Red= England


Serious flag
Okay… so we’ve had some fun with this brief. But seriously… the original flag is mega cool and it also appears in the corner of loads of other countries flags (like Australia). And it’s a really great brand – blue, red and white triangles have become a defining graphic language of Britain. So with that in mind we propose this flag.


It’s a simplified version of the original that removes the crosses and keeps the iconic elements - a central focus, angles and colours. It’s easier to draw and it looks great.

As much as we’d love to see one of these little beauties flying out in the world – Scotland, as you cast your vote today just remember what affect your vote could have on that lovely Union Jack."

Brand Relaunch at JohnMcneilStudio
"On the occasion of their 50th anniversary, The Berkeley School wanted to refresh their brand positioning to capture the elementary school’s inventive approach to education. We created a marketing and branding effort that included a new identity, website, messaging, original photography, print collateral, signage, art installations and a new color palette for the buildings. All these efforts mapped to the theme: “What matters in education matters in life.” We also developed a digital communication strategy deeply rooted in social media engagement. Through the “Bulletin Board” blogs, we helped bridge the gap between the classroom and a student’s home life."

Design Work Life » Eight Hour Day: Engler Studio Identity
"We wanted to cre­ate a brand for Engler Studio that embraced its inte­rior design skills, as well as its indi­vid­ual design per­son­al­ity. The main ele­ment of the brand is a graphic com­bi­na­tion of pat­terns that over­lap each other; they rep­re­sent the images and col­ors you might find on an inte­rior designer’s inspi­ra­tion board, and also refer to the play of pat­terns, col­ors, light and shad­ows in a beau­ti­fully designed room. The pat­terns can be assem­bled in var­i­ous com­bi­na­tions, depend­ing on mood, usage, and need. The end result: a sys­tem that speaks to clas­sic design and an inno­v­a­tive aesthetic."

BIS Publishers: Dynamic Identities: How to create a living brand
This visual book looks into design systems for living brand identities that can change in colour, pattern or shape. These identities often follow a system created by the designer but are sometimes created by data which is not controlled by the designer. These open identities generate new versions of themselves by external data feeds. The identity of the weather company, for example, is fuelled by the ever-changing weather conditions in real time.

Corporate identity is one of the major in graphic design - and branding and dynamic identities are the latest trends in that field. Dynamic Identities is the first BIS Publishers book to cover the topic.

The book offers a systematic process for creating living brand identities and gives the reader a wealth of examples, describing international identities that were built on the systems discussed. The cover has a lenticular effect with dynamic identities that change from one version to another while you move the book in your hands.

anarchitecture: Morphing Logo - WORKac
"Dynamic / morphing logo by Project Projects for the New York city based architectural practice WORKac. The moving shapes playfully reflect the multidisciplinary strategies of the design firm. A grid of nodes is continuously used in different forms, shaping a black filled outline with the company name: WORKac. For print, the studio picks from twelve forms they use. Visionary."

"Overall, this is a fantastic redesign for a very complex project and it’s quite amazing that, on the client’s end, everything was delivered and presented at the same time, and done so clearly and with excitement. The launch campaign images above show a kind of confidence rarely seen in major redesigns, as if everyone is waiting for the mob to attack…"

Under the hood of the Cognitive Cities Conference. – Your Neighbours
"The logo can be interpreted in many ways, and that is exactly what the conference is all about. Some interpret the C as a map of a city, others see it has a circuit board, or even a collection of Lego blocks. Whatever you see in it, the logo reflects a certain playfulness and level of depth that you’ll also see at the event itself. All the shapes in the “C” are based on a grid which has similar proportions to the New York City Grid Plan. The colors of the logo are randomly generated from a hand picked color palette. Through the use of Scriptographer, we were able to generate many different color combinations that could be used for different purposes. All the colors work on both black and white backgrounds. The type we used for the logo is Forza, a font that was originally commissioned by Wired. Coincidentally, the moderator of the Cognitive Cities conference is Editor at Large of Wired."

bruketa & zinic: kvarner visual identity
"the new visual identity for kvarner county tourism office has been developed by advertising agency bruketa & zinic. throughout history, kvarner located in croatia has been known as an intersection of four transport routes. according to bruketa & zinic, the very name kvarner evokes this quadrant, navigational spatial orientation. this is why the source of this visual identity proposal begins with the familiar symbol of the wind rose, which also includes references to navigation, four-sided spatial orientation and wind direction. this motif is then divided into simple geometrical visual elements, their simple forms and colors creating a kind of 'toolbox' for further development of the visual identity of the kvarner region and each one of its individual parts."
