I can only imagine that it must be quite daunting as a designer, to be confronted with the brief “design an identity for an event which brings together some of the most exciting creatives in one giant hot pot of ideas.” How can you represent diversity of all the different mediums participating in a way that’s clean and free of clutter? Presumably California-based studio Manual are the ones to go to when faced with such a problem, as the identity they’ve created for San Francisco Design Week 2013 is a fantastic example of how to go about it.

Jose Atkinson’s very dark but very funny animation depicting violent video games

Jose Atkinson’s very dark but very funny animation depicting violent video games | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

When illustrator and animator Jose Atkinson was a kid, he could usually be found in front a television screen. A fan of video games and watching movies, Jose’s watchful mum and dad drew the line on him playing or watching anything “deemed violent or rude, which was usually unfounded and used to really rustle my jimmies,” says the animator. Now a fully grown, square-eyed adult, Jose can watch, and subsequently make, whatever he wants.
