The alway amazing UVA have created a light installation at this year's serpentine pavilion in conjunction with the pavilion's architect Sou Fujimoto's. The installation translat'e Fujimoto's cloud architecture into a thunderstorm with some mesmerising affects. Super nice.

stealth type

With so much recent news about domestic surveillance programs is good to see that designer's are taking the initiative to develop new ways of 'hard wiring' in privacy. This typeface, called ZXX, has been circulating on the internet over the last week confuses search systems to render content undiscoverable by unscrupulous governments looking for key phrases. All a bit conspiracy theory but the end result is also very beautiful.

Sexy Fresh: Playboy rebrand for a younger audience.

Playboy is working to re-assert itself into American youth culture through a series of creative initiatives, the first of which being Playboy Marfa, a roadside attraction by Richard Phillips in Texas. The brand will commission a series of art projects to reintroduce the company to a younger audience.

Interesting to see how the right choice of location gives a sense of authenticity to the installation. 


Prime Cuts

Yeah, traditional sign writing's popular at the moment. These are nice though.

Mexican fireworks

Americans celebrate their country's independence today so let´s get some firecrackers in the house. These images are actually from Tultepec, Mexico from the annual feast during which citizens fight and play with fireworks. Vía fubiz

Happy Fourth of July!



Needless to say, we at Brinkworth like a bit of bling. So we're delighted to stumble across the work of design agency ConfettiSystem. Artist/designer duo Nicholas Anderson and Julie Ho combine tissue paper, card and silk applied across and a variety of applications including installations, jewellery set designs and interactive objects - all reminiscent of giant piñata's (which the also make). Beautifully simple. Visually stunning. Check out their tumblr And their site.
