Mobile travel guide provider Triposo has recently created “A Year Long Snapshots around the World“, a short film that reveals the exact locations in the world where pictures were taken, and that for each day of the year.

The beautiful film shows a world map in which pixels light up according to the amount of pictures taken, resulting in an animation that is far too fast to make sense of. Because of this, they have also provided a series of snapshots to highlight days where there are some remarkable trends and outliers. Take a look at the New Years Celebrations around the world.

Funky Monkey http://www.interstateofmind.com/funky-monkey/ http://www.interstateofmind.com/funky-monkey/#comments Tue, 19 Oct 2010 09:50:24 +0000 http://www.interstateofmind.com/?p=622 Image from the Telegraph's Picture of the day

Amazing what brands can do to help the consumer. Paul Frank have just launched a great initiative Julius branded bike saddle covers. Julius himself has been sighted kindly keeping Londoners bums dry! A promotion with a fun and helpful twist for the Barbican 'Bicycle Film Festival', that showcased new shorts, features and archive treats about everything bike.

Some cheeky and funky stuff from a naughty monkey that has some stories to tell. He's been around for a while but we think he is conspiring to have more fun in the UK soon.

Capturing It! http://www.interstateofmind.com/capturing-it/ http://www.interstateofmind.com/capturing-it/#comments Mon, 05 Jul 2010 17:18:54 +0000 http://www.interstateofmind.com/?p=153 On more than one occasion recently I have noticed some quite prominent exposure of the font we used for the Play F.C. branding project. I suspect this is just coincidence and down to the fact that since using it I have become visually aware of its characteristics. Interestingly though, albeit for one example, the context in which it is used is far removed from the motive behind using it for Play F.C.

On more than one occasion recently I have noticed some quite prominent exposure of the font we used for the Play F.C. branding project. I suspect this is just coincidence and down to the fact that since using it I have become visually aware of its characteristics. Interestingly though, albeit for one example, the context in which it is used is far removed from the motive behind using it for Play F.C.

The font in question is called ‘Capture It’ and is available as a free download from www.dafont.com. We decided Capture It was perfect for Play F.C. for two reasons. Firstly, it expressed our idea of stenciling messages and chants on grass (inspired by the painting of the white lines of a football pitch), and secondly, being a free download, it was ideally suited to the budget of this charitable cause.

I first saw it in use for The Expendables movie. However, the identity of this movie has since changed for its upcoming UK release and is now displayed in a distressed traditional serif font. I was at the cinema again last week and I noticed the font all over the posters promoting the new A-Team movie. On the movie’s official website the font gets even more exposure. It’s quite interesting that two of 2010’s biggest action films both decided to use this font for their promotional material, both obviously utilising its military stencil appeal. However, just to show we were not alone in using it to express a football theme I discovered some downloadable player profiles on the website of the Slovenian Football Association, they have used it to display the squad numbers of their players.

Last Day Dream http://www.interstateofmind.com/last-day-dream/ http://www.interstateofmind.com/last-day-dream/#comments Thu, 28 Jan 2010 15:40:26 +0000 http://www.interstateofmind.com/?p=134 For my first ever blog post, I’m taking you back four years to a film called “Stranger Than Fiction”. I’ve always loved the title sequence, and combining an appreciation of information design with a passion for all things OCD-related, it’s a match made in heaven! If you’re anything like me, and you haven’t seen it yet, check it out – you won’t be disappointed…

Where the Wild Things Are http://www.interstateofmind.com/where-the-wild-things-are/ http://www.interstateofmind.com/where-the-wild-things-are/#comments Fri, 18 Dec 2009 17:08:04 +0000 http://www.interstateofmind.com/?p=331 From Beastie Boys to Boys with Beasts. Director Spike Jonze has used his surrealist visionary skills to create the motion picture based on the childrens bedtime favourite ‘Where the Wild Things Are’. Taking direct inspiration from the author Maurice Sendak’s illustrations, Jonze has created a Lo-Fi fairytale spectacle that has been lauded by adults and children alike since its release. It shows how an audience doesn’t always need to be wowed by bank breaking CGI effects when the original narrative is so strong.
