Paramount Celebrates 100 Years With 100 Iconic Films

Paramount Celebrates 100 Years With 100 Iconic Films | Further reading | Scoop.it

In celebration of Paramount Pictures’ 100th Anniversary US design studio DKNG were asked to create a limited edition screenprint featuring 100 of their most iconic films.

 

These 24″x36″ prints have a limited edition of 3500 and will only be available to Paramount employees. In other words, they won’t be sold.

 

However, for you movie buffs, you can still have the pleasure of figuring out which movies are included in the poster!

 

Amazing design is all about distilling the essence - and that is what DKNG did with each of the 100 films. It's awesome how easily recognisable most films are.

 

Simply great, minimalistic design!

The Making of the Leica M9-P »Edition Hermès« – Série Limitée Jean-Louis Dumas

In today's world, where everything is constantly available and everything is premium - what is true, real luxury?

 

With everything being labeled 'premium' (from beer to toilet paper), one way to define luxury is by limiting availability, i.e scarcity of goods. Limited editions are a great way for brands to create something unique, something out of the ordinary, something more valuable (?).

 

French high fashion house Hermès and German camera maker Leica teamed up to produce a limited edition camera in honour of Jean-Louis Dumas, the late president of Hermès. The 300-piece-edition (apparently) sells for USD 25.000, while an even-more-limited 100-piece edition supposed to cost USD 50.000.

 

In order to visualise the long tradition of master craftsmenship at both companies, they produced a beautifully arranged 'Making of' and a similar 'Unboxing of' video.

When witnessing the product being assembled by hand and the love for detail involved, I can understand the allure and fascination of traditional craftsmanship - and possibly answer what real luxury might be ...
