Beautiful Houses: Villa-K in Nagano

Posted: 25 Jun 2010 04:12 AM PDT

The idea in this series is to show beautiful and inspiring houses. Houses that are remarkable for its design, elegance, elements, concept or simply because they are beautiful. So if you like architecture, interior design and beautifully designed houses, you are at the right spot. Check out this week beautiful house and stay tuned for more...

This week, we present you the amazing Villa-K.

The Villa-K is a project by Mutsue Hayakusa Cell Space Architects. The house is located in Nagano, Japan and it is simply amazing. I didn't find many information about the project and its details but I think the house speaks for itself, it's really beautiful. The wide glass windows, the huge interiors spaces, the angled roofs... everything matches perfectly creating a house that looks simple and impressive at the same time.

Well, in my opinion this one is the best until now! I really liked this whole composition, specially the angled ceiling that give the interiors a wide and cozy look. And I also liked the clean and neat decoration. Simply loved it! Check out Mutsue Hayakusa Cell Space Architects website for further details about their projects. See you next time. :)

3D Typography Book Giveaway

Posted: 25 Jun 2010 03:51 AM PDT

Can you really compare experimental 3D typography – like lettering made of live moss or letter kites that fly messages in the sky – to the work of Gutenberg? If you ask Jeanette Abbink, Emily CM Anderson and the over 100 international designers, typographers and artists featured in 3D Typography, the answer is a resounding yes.

From type crafted of steel and neon, to carefully-cut live moss, everyday items like buttons and sugar cubes, to giant installments of polythene and paper, the work in 3D Typography serves as a bold reaction to the fact that so much of today¹s typography is conceived via screens.

Giveaway

We have a copy of the 3D Typography book to give away thanks to our friends over at MBP publisher, to participate is really easy, just leave a comment with a book suggestion. We will announce the winner next Friday.

Having worked for prestigious media outlets as designers and art directors, Abbink and Anderson have compiled this book as a reaction to the fact that so much of today's typography is conceived via two-dimensional screens. Like Gutenberg and generations of typeface designers who worked with physically shaped and cast lead type, these artists return the literal heft to letters.

Stunning Illustrations by Enkel Dika

Posted: 24 Jun 2010 10:15 PM PDT

Friday is here and I couldn't think about a better thing to post today than my favorite subject: illustration! Some time ago I've found this amazing artist, Enkel Dika, who makes awesome art.

<!--break-->

Enkel has come with some of the best T-shirt arts I've seen in a while... these are some truly groovy, psychadelic pieces, and I bet most of you will love it as much as I did. He's done work for Threadless and has won some awards there, so I recommend you to check his portfolio for even more of his stunning illustrations. Cheers! ;)
