Alex Carro Packaging

Hey folks, it’s been a while. Life got in the way, but I’m back from hibernation and I will try to post more frequently.

This work designed by Malva Sawada and creative directed by Andrew Trotter is what got me out of my slumber. It’s a super minimal packaging design for Barcelona based skincare brand, Alex Carro. The minimal design was also applied to the website, which is also wonderful.

RAMS: A Documentary About Dieter Rams

Gary Hustwit, the director of the documentaries Helvetica, Objectified, and Urbanized, is directing the first feature-length documentary about the life of legendary product designer, Dieter Rams. He has put together a Kickstarter to fund the rest of the filming and production. The backer rewards are great, including posters designed by Michael C. Place of Build. This is a great project that will preserve Rams’ life and work. I’ve backed it.

The documentary will include in-depth conversations with Dieter, and detail the process behind some of his most iconic designs. We want to get past the legend of Dieter, and get into his philosophy, process, inspirations, and even his regrets.

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.
