I’m not a big fan of AR and its sometimes clumsy relationship with content – too often it feels as if the technology overwhelms the message. But this combination of delicate Royal Wilton crockery design and computer animated action is a more intriguing fit than most. I like the mix of very traditional and very modern.
The cover of the March/April issue of Crafts magazine features the design, which triggers the animation when viewed via the free app on an iPhone or iPad (video after the jump).
The Telegraph asks ‘Are magazines just dead wood?’
Put A Egg On It team interviewed by the New York Post. Egg-stra, Egg-stra!
The Tooting Zine Fair takes place Saturday 25 February.
I’m one of the speakers at Utrecht’s ‘National Cover Day’ event later this Spring. Also on the extensive line-up: Richard Turley, Mirko Borsche and Jaap from Coverjunkie. Details here.
Meanwhile in London next month (March 16), the first magCulture event takes place. ‘Making Magazines 2012’ has been organised in partnership with Eye magazine, and tickets are now on sale. Full details here soon.
The next Printout! evening is set for Thursday 1 March. This will be our first design evening, and as you can see above we have a great line-up of speakers. The format will be slightly different this time; we’ll be using a projector to show the work, and for that reason we’re limiting numbers to make sure everyone is able to see the screen.
So book now to avoid disappointment!
What a great weekend that was. How could looking at magazines alongside fellow magaholics be anything else? Good to meet Jaap Coverjunkie at last, along with Brendan from ’Sup and Brian from McSweeney’s, as well as catch up with so many other people.
