I Love Dust created this psychedelic freakout for MTV’s World Design Studio as a part of their first creative collaboration with 55DSL. I have no idea how you get something like this past the client but sign us up. I am a big huge slobbery fan of I Love Dust and it’s exciting to see where they have gone lately with animation and motion.

Nerdo Design Collective is a new motion and graphic design studio based in Torino, Italy. They get posted almost entirely because they were smart enough to put together the above video which has to be one of my favorite movie scenes of all time. My business card is often referred to as the American Psycho card or the Darth Vader card and it always makes me think of the above scene. It’s a clever promotional idea.

Yeah I know, it’s Linkin Park but hey the compositing in this video is awesome. I am not sure who directed or animated the video but it’s a great effect and even more kudos go to giving Linkin Park a makeover.

I almost forgot Daniele Manoli’s alphabet video of the week this week. So this time we have the letter ‘Q’ (one of my favorite letters) that stands for Quadrilateral. How awesome are all of these videos? One for every letter in the alphabet. Still blows my mind.

“We wanted to make a series of moving sculptures that take inspiration from the great surrealists like dali and in particular his lobster telephone. We have tried to build intriguing objects that leave you wanting to see more. These objects are mechanical but at the same time organic in their movements. They are a collection of textures, objects and movements that create images that we wanted to see.”

Produced and directed by We Are 17. You can read a little more about them here.

Mr. Harrison (if you please) is a graduate from Central St. Martins and has been on a streak directing some highly unusual but brilliant music videos. The most recent of which is the above video for Asprins single ‘Cutter’. It’s not quite like anything I have seen lately. Mr. Harrison is one to keep an eye on.

This Fall Nando Costa visited Chile to speak at a design conference called Sudala. For the event, he created a custom typography piece. He captured the creation of the work recording his screen. The recording was later played at the event. The illustration was made with no prior planning and really illustrates just how talented Costa is. We were watching it this afternoon in our studio and were once again impressed by Costa’s genuine talent.
