Tears at 3am, pineapple on pizza, nodding along to a Kylie song—we've all been there. If you say you haven't, we raise you an eyebrow (or two).This week we want to share even more of our experiences with you. Mimi Leung's new show, Australian Roadkill, kicked off last Thursday in a psychedelic triumph of an opening party. Mulled wine went everywhere. Snip Green made us literally sail through wild storms and pack ice to the frozen continent of Antarctica... well, not literally... and Gemma O'Brien categorically cleaned up at the Type Directors Club Awards. Andrew Fairclough ushered his internet friends through his design studio while Twitchery artists Toby & Pete collaborated with SEA photographer James Newman for Allergan‘s new anti-wrinkle campaign. Oh, and Billie Chu is not our lover... but Lachlan Conn for Fairfax Media will mow your lawn. Love always - jw.
Gemma O'Brien won the coveted award of typographic excellence at The Type Directors Club New York for her work with Kirin Cider. Gemma handpainted 40 billboards for the premium alcoholic cider. Chances are you’ve seen ‘em round your hood. Watch the short video after the jump.
Lachlan Conn for Fairfax Media
Jul 14, 2014 10:10 am
Lachlan Conn illustrated how one becomes a jack of all trades in a ‘sharing economy’ for Fairfax. His illustration accompanied a fascinating article by journalist Konrad Marshall about his multifaceted week of work using Airtasker. And not to give out any spoilers, but it sounds like it’s a little exhausting offering real-world abilities to online taskmasters. At the same time, perhaps it’s part-and-parcel of the inevitable shift towards a new economic model. Read the article and make up your own mind!
We Buy Your Kids were commissioned by Delaware North to create environmental illustrations for Billie Chu at Perth Airport. Billie Chu is an Asian hawker-style food outlet which offers freshly cooked noodles, rice and wok-fried dishes from South East Asia. Ok, but let’s talk about how the art itself seriously looks good enough to eat. Look at those delicous colours! If you were in an airport would you not want to pop in? Thought so. Photography by Michael Kai, whose website can be found here.
Twitchery artists Toby & Pete and SEA photographer James Newman worked together on Allergan‘s new anti-wrinkle campaign. We can’t tell you how much we love it when our image-makers connect and collaborate on great campaigns—it’s better than a snowman-building competition and a karaoke contest put together. This Allergan campaign is currently live across Australia, and you can see a picture of the outdoors ads at Bondi down below. Brilliant teamwork from both sides!
Gemma O’Brien has won an award of typographic excellence at The Type Directors Club New York for her work with Kirin Cider. Gemma handpainted 40 billboards for the premium alcoholic cider which were rolled out across Sydney and Melbourne. Chances are you’ve seen ‘em round your hood.
The Type Directors Club has been celebrating and connecting typographic leaders from around the world for over 65 years. Through their annual competitions, they highlight the very best typographic talent both in the US and internationally.
Gemma’s work will be included in 7 exhibitions touring cities in the United States, Canada, France, England, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, South Korea, Russia, Spain, Thailand, Taiwan and Vietnam. Next stop: world domination.
The multi-talented Snip Green has illustrated a new picture book about the great Antarctic explorer, Sir Douglas Mawson, for an ongoing series about the extraordinary men and women who have shaped Australia’s history. Published by Random House Australia, ‘Meet Douglas Mawson’ tells the heroic story of how Mawson survived the dangers and challenges of the infamous frozen continent. Snip’s bold illustrations perfectly depict the bleak climate of Antarctica and Mawson’s outlandish bravery. They highlight the immensity of the landscape and the painful geometry of all that green ice. This series by Random House has picture books featuring everyone from Ned Kelly to Saint Mary MacKillop, but only this one has the clean edginess of Snip Green as illustrator. Get a copy.
