Geometry Club

Geometry Club is an Instagram based project by Dave Mullen that collects architectural photographs taken using two specific guidelines:

– Your apex needs to be aligned centrally on both the X and Y axis.
– Edges should fall off the image at the same point, symmetrically.

Just follow these two rules, and tag your image with #geometryclub to be featured. The results are beautiful.

Sebastian Weiss is a photographer, and a photo columnist at Architectural Digest Germany, based in Hamburg, Germany. His architectural photos are stunning, and I love how he really captures the essence of a building, and does it in a very minimal way.

Wonder which camera he’s using. My guess is he’s using an iPhone, but can’t confirm.

For his most update-to-date photos, follow him on Instagram.

As you know, I’m a sucker for graphics manuals. This one for the 1979 Mediterranean Games in Split is wonderful. The logo was designed by Borislav Ljubičić, and the manual was created in 1977 by the International Olympic Committee’s visual communications department.

You can see more of the manual at Designers Books.

Site Running Again

Hey folks, happy new year!

The site is finally back up and running after some down-time. I was getting some crazy php errors and it took me a while to figure out the problem and restore the site. Everything should be back to normal, but let me know if you notice any bugs.

I’ll be posting frequently again starting next week, so stay tuned!
