The Clocksmiths

The Clock­smiths is an Ital­ian design stu­dio con­sist­ing of design­ers Giu­ditta Bru­sadelli and Augusto Arduini. They spe­cial­ize in com­mu­ni­ca­tion and brand­ing design and have com­piled an impres­sive col­lec­tion of work. My per­sonal favorite is the work they did for themselves.

A book-length photo essay by an Istan­bul pho­tog­ra­pher about her father’s eccen­tric business-card col­lec­tion. A cloth-bound, foil-stamped, step-by-step work­book that guides read­ers through the process of nam­ing a prod­uct or orga­ni­za­tion. A flu­o­res­cent and metal­lic sil­ver pam­phlet about kinetic sculp­ture. These are just a few of our projects at ExtraCur­ric­u­lar Press.

ExtraCur­ric­u­lar Press is an inde­pen­dent pub­lish­ing enter­prise show­cas­ing artists, authors, and mak­ers from a wide array of dis­ci­plines and back­grounds. We pro­duce lim­ited edi­tion books and ephemera for curi­ous cul­ture col­lec­tors of all kinds.

ExtraCur­ric­u­lar is named for the cre­ative activ­i­ties that extend beyond the stu­dio prac­tice of Brian Scott at Boon Design.

The Birth Of A Tool

The Birth Of A Tool is a three-part doc­u­men­tary series show­ing the hand-crafted process of how John Nee­man Tools are made. The films are beau­ti­fully shot, and are just mes­mer­iz­ing. See­ing a mas­ter crafts­man at work is a thing of beauty. There’s some­thing spe­cial about mak­ing some­thing real with your hands.

John Nee­man Tools is a small Latvia based com­pany that pro­duces super high qual­ity knives, axes, chisel and long­bow using tra­di­tional tech­niques. The way they com­bined wood, metal and leather is superb.

Above is Part I, and here is Part II and Part III.

Oslo based stu­dio, Neue, has been awarded the task of redesign­ing the Nor­we­gian pass­port. I’m not sure if these designs are final, or if it’s just con­cept, but they’re won­der­ful. More gov­ern­ments should embrace great design like this, espe­cially the US.

Lo Siento is a Barcelona based design stu­dio pro­duc­ing print, web, motion and exhi­bi­tion work. A lot of great stuff in their port­fo­lio. My favorite is this leaflet for the new Design Museum of Barcelona. It’s printed in 3 col­ors and languages.

Il Capo




This is an excerpt on NOWNESS from the doc­u­men­tary, Il Capo (The Chief) by Ital­ian film­maker Yuri Ancar­ani. The film fol­lows a mar­ble quarry boss who uses sim­ple hand ges­tures to guide his crew. The topic is fas­ci­nat­ing, but what strikes me the most about the excerpt is the won­der­ful aes­thet­ics cre­ated by mix­ing the beau­ti­ful land­scape, excel­lent cin­e­matog­ra­phy, and a super min­i­mal sound design. All you hear are the sounds of the machin­ery and the mas­sive mar­ble blocks being extracted. It’s all won­der­ful and worth a look.

I’m really enjoy­ing the work of Pol­ish archi­tect and graphic designer Tomasz Bere­zowski. His design work is looks like it come right out of the 60s. Sim­ple, typo­graphic design.
