Last one of the remixes, from the Warehouse Collective

I absolutely loved the original piece, and was kinda dreading the idea of having to come up with a remix that matched it. This one might be one of my favorites. It came together so quickly and effortlessly, as if the two images were made for each other. The sense of road-trip nostalgia, which was the most important element of the original for me, was kept and enhanced in this piece, and that’s enough for me. It also helped that in overlaying the two images together, a few stars appeared. 

Thankful for Allie Villarreal’s piece that allowed this design to exist. 

Another remix from the Warehouse Collective, this time with a bit more restrain.

I knew from the very beginning of the remix project (once I read Mike’s remix) that I had to use the dog from the original piece, and it had to be the centerpiece. I envisioned a whole vintage-notebook design that featured the dog and some fanciful serif font underneath for the text. But then that wouldn’t be truly sticking to the terms of the project now would it? It would have veered too much into another style that I think, in hindsight, would have been much easier for me. So instead, I stuck with the formalized and linear system of the original piece, albeit this time in a creatively-looser form. 

The best part for me in this entire piece was seeing how the colors just worked so well with each other. I didn’t have to do very much to make all the disparate pieces align with one another in an unexpected, ‘remixed’ way. Also, if there’s an opportunity to use Helvetica unironically and actually pull it off—that’s a good day in my book. 

One of the “remix” challenges from the Warehouse Collective.

This was interesting because the original piece was very much focused on the formal elements of design—shape, color, and type—and was also structured in a very specific and organized way. I didn’t intend to completely subvert that process in this remix, but I guess that’s what happened? I’m still not 100% sure of this design, but this has happened so many times now that I’ve learnt to trust that my uncertainty is often the indication of a work’s completion. 

In any case, my ramblings aside, this was—in my opinion—a successful remix of those aforementioned elements because it did force me to consider just how extreme can I push the structural envelope and still be satisfied with the results? The title drove me mad for a while (resulting in multiple iterations), as did the slightly-obstructed text on the left—which for some reason both excited and frustrated me. 

But at the end of the day, this is what the project’s all about: pushing yourself past your comfort zone. Onwards! 

(Shoutout to Kelley for another great piece). 

From the Warehouse Collective

This was one of those designs that came about because of a personal challenge I set for myself—in this case, that of illustrating a perfectly symmetrical tennis racket. I even spent a whole lot of time making sure I had the ‘correct’ number of strings in the ‘correct’ arrangement, only to discover that there really isn’t a “standard” set. But the result looked really cool, and once you’ve got a good complex illustration it basically just starts building itself into a design. 

Surprisingly (given how much I loved the movie), I didn’t realize the resemblance to HAL until the very end. At that point I thought “what a nice subconscious homage.” 

Also, check out Kelley Kidd’s piece that inspired the whole thing! 

As an Indonesian, I can totally empathize with that sick look of enjoyment at the end—sometimes you just gotta have the burn! And you wonder why so many Southeast Asian countries have milk and/or condensed milk in their drinks…

I’m in design love with this entire title sequence (most especially the slow moving sun….. what a classic touch)! And speakin’ of sexy…. those pipes though. 

A bit late to the game, but it’s still one hella sexy infographic.

this looks like the buffet of food from Spirited Away, where I don’t know what ANY of it is, but it looks AMAZING

holds back tears*

Food porn.

about 99% sure that this is from the movie Eat Drink Man Woman and it pisses me off that people have no idea what it is, where it’s from, and just immediately equate it with an anime thing.
Because oh look it’s actually traditional CHINESE cooking. 
Look.
This was Ang Lee’s first real big hit—and it’s an amazing movie and these shots were so hard to film that they had to literally hire FUCKING STUNT CHEFS TO DO THE ACTION SHOTS OK. (warning: he kills a fish and a chicken in these shots).
The first shot is making dumplings in a quick and amazing way which takes YEARS of practice to do.
The next couple of shots are of steamed white chicken which is one of those staple, simple foods in Chinese cuisine that is really REALLY hard to perfect. Like it’s one of those things that sounds simple but is rarely ever perfect. 
The next is smoked pork belly and bok choy.
I could go on and on and on but like I’m just really pissed off that people are reblogging this like “OMFG REAL LIFE SPIRITED AWAY.”
Fuck you, it’s Ang Lee’s amazing fucking movie, Eat Drink Man Woman, which is all about sisters and daughters and food and family and basically no, it’s not fucking anime, it’s fucking Chinese culture in a nutshell.

Loved this movie when I watched it in college (firstly for an Asian literature and culture class, then secondly for a “Food and Performance” theater class), and I kinda agree with the opinion above—though perhaps not as vehemently. And people say Chinese food is boring.  lightspeedsound:
