Seoul studio Everyday Practice talks about its collaborative approach to design

Seoul studio Everyday Practice talks about its collaborative approach to design | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it
Seoul-based graphic design studio Everyday Practice was founded by Kwon Joonho, Kim Kyung-chul and Kim Eojin, and aims to address “the role of design and how design acts in reality” through its projects. “When we first started our studio, a particular graphic style similar to Dutch and Swiss design was in vogue in Korea, but we have tried to set up our own style,” says the studio. “Each member of Everyday Practice has different design methods and we try to mix and modify them to create a new design practice.”

Newly discovered studio of the week! Introducing Studio-Set

Newly discovered studio of the week! Introducing Studio-Set | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

Jasio Stefanski and Lauren Thorson are Studio-Set – a creative duo who have been working together since 2012, and who now have a host of commissioned and self-initiated projects to their name. They’ve made work for the LA Art Book Fair, a Polish Film Festival in New York and a Museum of the Portuguese Language in São Paulo, and each time they switch up their style, darting from brightly coloured printed posters to animated GIFs, with some happy book design thrown in for good measure. They might still be working out in which of these styles they’re happiest, but for the time being we’re glad to be able to revel in all three, and to give credit where credit is due to the studio’s flexibility.

A studio visit with Thomas Mailaender

A studio visit with Thomas Mailaender | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

Do you have your own daily routine within the studio? For example, do you usually start by answering your emails then get to work etc?
Whenever I’ll arrive at my studio, I’ll spend about one hour reading some books to get inspiration. I am not very much into high literature, I mostly go for “do it yourself books” like the great “how to become a professional stuntman in one week” that I just finished. I am also a big reader of stuff like the Guiness books, erotic magazines, hunting or fishing manuals. After this kind of brain food I usually feel like I could be the king of the world and that’s the good moment for me to really start working. The rest of the day never becomes a routine, I try not to repeat things in my professional life. I use that space to shoot personal projects, do sculpture or installation as well as producing some commercial photography as well, like advertisement or industrial product. Every day is a different day.

Mehryl Levisse | Captations photographiques (2013)

Mehryl Levisse | Captations photographiques (2013) | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

Mehryl Levisse photographs the body at its most human. Unlike traditional photography, which captures real moments, this young artist produces images from scratch, from his imagination, books, life experiences, family history, music, mythology and many other sources. As opposed to a photographer, Levisse considers his photographs not as something final, but as the trace of something that occurred in the privacy of his studio.

Cinecittá unlocks the magic of cinema

Cinecittá unlocks the magic of cinema | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

Cinema and only cinema can skip thousands of years and take us from Imperial Rome to Romantic times. It also breaks natural limits and shows the depths of sea on board this submarine, used in the World War II movie “U-571.” A compass will prove useless if we want to find those wonderful places: they all belong to Cinecittá studios, the dream factory that never closes. Its 75 years of history can now be enjoyed for the first time.

Bringing together still and moving images, the MoMA exhibition A World of Its Own: Photographic Practices in the Studio explores the use of studio space by photographers and artists beginning in 1826. “In this digital age in which a younger generation of photographers is going back to the studio, I felt it was important to acknowledge the role played by this space in photography’s history,” Quentin Bajac, the first non-American to head the New York museum’s photography department, told Time magazine. (He arrived in January 2013.)
