Last weekend, the Interstate team took themselves along to the BBC Good Food Eat Well Show down the road at Olympia, London.

The exhibition brought together healthy food brands and producers alongside an inspirational line-up of healthy eating chefs and celebs. An opportunity to discover how to balance a healthy lifestyle with a love of good food.

The highlight for us was to see the BBC Good Food Eat Well book series on display – very popular it was too! 

Not only did we leave with full stomachs and bags of tasty foods, but also minds full of inspiration and ideas to share with our clients!

Changing the Formula One Aesthetic http://www.interstateofmind.com/changing-the-formula-one-aesthetic/ http://www.interstateofmind.com/changing-the-formula-one-aesthetic/#comments Tue, 15 Jan 2013 17:39:37 +0000 http://www.interstateofmind.com/?p=2824 With the 2013 Formula One season fast approaching, Interstate has recently created the identity and editorial styling of a new and insightful publication about the inner workings of this complex sport.

With the 2013 Formula One season fast approaching, Interstate has recently created the identity and editorial styling of a new and insightful publication about the inner workings of this complex sport. Entitled Chicane, the publication delves into the twists and turns of the world’s most sophisticated sporting business and provides detail analysis of every aspect of its operation.

CHICANE, edition 001 takes an experimental and innovative approach aiming to extend the breadth and depth of the current Formula One coverage. Editorially, Chicane is authorative strategic reporting, using many specialist contributors from within the sport itself. It’s essential reading for anyone working specifically within Formula One and more generally anyone simply interested in the world’s most sophisticated sporting business.

Visually Chicane had to shine in many environments: in a racing team’s motorhome, in a business aviation lounge or in the offices of a government trade mission. To achieve this we developed a clean, stylish and confident design, taking more inspiration from the technology and fashion sectors than motor sport. The bold cover image and more ‘brooding’ colour palette is intended to create a sense of mystery and theatre, using a close up of the suspended sculptural work of artist Paul Veroude.

An elegantly simple masthead employs subtle type detailing that is reflected in image framing, border usage and information graphics throughout the spreads. A design to mitigate the ‘page turning’ of most Formula One publications.

Chicane will also extend in to a tablet version with unique and exclusive film and animation content.

Web Lab http://www.interstateofmind.com/web-lab/ http://www.interstateofmind.com/web-lab/#comments Fri, 21 Sep 2012 11:15:00 +0000 http://www.interstateofmind.com/?p=2646 Excitement is stirring in the basement of the Science Museum in London as Google is showing off the power of the internet. Invading the physical realm by launching a new exhibition, Web Lab is a series of interactive Chrome experiments made by Google that brings the extraordinary workings of the internet to life, with the aim of inspiring the world on the possibilities of the web.

Visitors to both the Web Lab and web abled people across the world are coming together to make music with one another, launch information into cyberspace and see where images on the web live and travel. A highlight for me was watching my photograph being taken, processed, translated, and then drawn in sand by a sketchrob.

The exciting installations will be around for a year at the Science Museum, so take a look if you can. Failing that, the experiments are interactive for anyone, anywhere at Chrome Web Lab. (If you don’t have it already, you will need to download Chrome). The website is beautifully put together, and it will be easy to get lost playing on all the online experiments which can all be saved to your account and shared on the usual social medias.

Here is a glimpse of my participation both at the Science Museum and online.

Travel Photographer of the Year http://www.interstateofmind.com/travel-photographer-of-the-year/ http://www.interstateofmind.com/travel-photographer-of-the-year/#comments Thu, 16 Aug 2012 15:27:49 +0000 http://www.interstateofmind.com/?p=2568 Whilst researching at the Royal Geographic Society yesterday I was lucky enough to see the Travel Photographer of the Year competition exhibition displayed in the Pavilion (both inside and outside).

The exhibition includes a showcase of work by the overall winner of the 2011 award, American photographer Louis Montrose. Also on display were images shot earlier this year, by the 2007 winner Cat Vinton, of His Holiness the Dalai Lama. Stuart Dunn’s shows some beautiful shots from his travels to India, documenting the work of the Elephant Family charity, as part of his prize from 2010’s TPOTY awards. There is also a display about the history of travel photography, featuring images from the Royal Geographical Society’s archive.

From the extreme humidity of the rain forests of South America and the Far East, to the freezing and inhospitable arctic regions of northern Canada and Russia – the competition attracts stunning image entries from across the world.

Check out the audio slide show containing a selection of images from the exhibition on the BBC News website. The exhibition is open till the 2nd September and is free.

Olympic Logo a Day http://www.interstateofmind.com/olympic-logo-a-day/ http://www.interstateofmind.com/olympic-logo-a-day/#comments Thu, 02 Aug 2012 14:06:09 +0000 http://www.interstateofmind.com/?p=2300 A lovely alternative Olympic logo idea. Sarah Hyndman of With Relish, a London based design agency, started a project called  Olympic Logo a Day. The idea was to take a photo of random objects arranged to resemble the Olympic Rings each day for a whole year. Not only Sarah was involved, the project was open to contributions from far and wide, and the end result has been made into this charming video showing each and every image throughout the year.

New Designers Show http://www.interstateofmind.com/new-designers-show/ http://www.interstateofmind.com/new-designers-show/#comments Mon, 09 Jul 2012 17:06:39 +0000 http://www.interstateofmind.com/?p=2206 This weekend I was lucky enough to have a look around the New Designers Show held at the Business Design Centre in Islington, where graduate designers are given a national platform to show off their portfolios, network and share ideas with designers from other disciplines.

Taking place over two weeks, with nine distinct design zones representing all major design disciplines, New Designers was an event full of innovation and fresh thinking. Over 3,500 of the most talented newly graduated designers from across Britain came together to showcase contemporary applied art – product design, metal work, ceramics, glass, textiles fashions and home accessories, illustration, graphic design. The range and quality of work was great. With a real show of originality, style and vibrancy the future of British design is set to be bright.
