Justin Blyth is a multi-faceted and multi-talented individual who has also occasionally dropped a post on Changethethought from time-to-time. Lately he has been curating some exceptional tee through Blood is the New Black and running his always inspirational curated image blog Them Thangs. Aside from all of that he still manages to find time to create experimental art and design work. In short, he’s awesome.

“More than a year in the making, the list of contributors to this piece is long in deed. Challenge Your World, a project conceived by famed art director Julien Vallée and in partnership with Motionographer.com, has been running even longer. The project is meant to stretch the mind and conceive of interesting ways we could help ye old planet Earth. Specifically, we were asked to develop the story of an abstract machine that would do good in the world. Of course, every story needs a villain; ours features a maniacal monster who seeks to destroy the planet. He burns down forests with the flick of a cigarette, pisses on helpless animals, and harpoons innocent whales. He’s sick! Twisted! Our hero is a fabulous flying Helmet chalk full of tubes and gears, pinwheels and dials, microchips and suction cups. When the Helmet spots an evil-doer, it lands on his head and promptly sucks the evil critters out of his brain…a lobotomy of sorts. So, when you’re contemplating dropping that wrapper or flicking that smoke, you better look over your shoulder.”

With more than 17 million articles in over 270 languages, Wikipedia has undoubtedly become one of the most visited and relied upon sites on the web today.”

My good friend Ryan Bramwell has made a real splash on Denver in the past 2 years with his motion design company named Spillt. They have relaunched with an entirely new website that has been updated with several new projects including their new reel that you can watch above. Lots of good stuff in their portfolio and it makes me proud to call Ryan a friend and even prouder to be sharing space with him here in the fine city of Denver.

“Buck is an ordinary guy. Well, if you accept the “deer head” thing.
Today, Buck is going to spend the afternoon with his girlfriend who’s so happy to see him (she’s pretty much happy always). But when Buck finds out that her father is not the tolerant and sympathetic guy he expected, the Sunday afternoon turns really bad. Really bad. Like baaaaaaad bad.”

Kim Dulaney relaunches with some seriously beautiful work for both motion boards and print. It’s highly artistic, a little bit strange and very detailed work.
