Suie paparude

JOyfull and playfull design: Suie paparude


A little anecdote celebrating blogpost number 1001, ever since may 3rd 2006 the beginning of this blog, I've never posted anything about my passion for our national sport: SOCCER. As a child I was full of it, only thing I could think about was soccer, but anyway let's call it football from now on... Starting my football-career at Club Brugge K.V. and migrated to K.S.V.Jabbeke because of new team structures in the youth leagues when I was about the age of 12 (Brugge cut from 3 teams, local-district-national per age to only 2 teams district-national) I also played at K.W.S.Oudenburg and V.K.Ettelgem for just 1 year. Nothing much to be dazzled from but still.

As a kid I always got footballpresents from my dad, including an AJAX shirt! I was a major VanBasten fan.. anyway my brother in law is a huge PSV Eindhoven fan and as the Champions League season is on it's way once again I travelled to Eindhoven with him to watch them beat Marseille. Unfortunatly I mistakenly told some friends of him, diehard fans, that I have an AJAX-shirt in my closeth... frankly they all snapped berserk. And now I'm obligated to ritually burn my AJAX-shirt nex Champions League game against Liverpool F.C.

And thus I wanted to flag the shirt one last time (see image)

Nokia - somebody elses phone

Imagine finding a phone that belongs to somebody else; filled with personal text messages, contacts, diary entries, photos, voice mails and private video clips. Would you look through it?

This question is the starting point for the new Nokia campaign "Somebody else's phone". Inspired by the evolved role mobile phones play in people's lives, the audience is invited to explore the lives of 3 characters - Anna, Jade and Luca – in intimate detail, in real time, through their Nokia 7610 handsets.

The campaign follows the characters’ evolving story lines across three time zones, through a 24/7 feed of content, for over 6 weeks. The idea is to create a mix of scripted content and real life audience interaction: fans will be able to learn about the characters through their text messages, photos, videos and calls on the campaign site somebodyelsesphone.com. And they can sign up to the characters' Facebook pages or discover the characters’ phone numbers and call or text them directly.


You might have noticed that my daily updates are down recently, and that I'm now porting lots of stuff without much further to do. Correct. I'm rather busy taking care of many practicals since I'll be a father in January... so forgive me the lack of critical responding to most projects that will come up in the near future.

And as a future-father I'm now discovering that there's decent designs for baby-stuff too... Like the Bebiko-website

Duval 2.0

Well well, DuvalGuillaume - one of belgium's most renowned advertising agencies when it comes to picking up Lions has - finally - renewed their website. Without replacing it with yet another boring showcase of cherry-picked work they've taken it to blogging straight away. Though I don't quite like the boringness of the Wordpress-template design, it is a vivid step forward...

So no need to keep waiting, start here

Banksy goes SOHO NYC

A huge Banksy mural was spotted being put up in Soho at Wooster and Grand this morning. At first it appeared that it was possibly Banksy himself painting the huge rat, but the painter's American accent quickly revealed that it was not in fact the pseudo-anonymous British graffiti artist.

After initially dodging questions, the painter revealed that he was working for the sign painting company Colossal Media and was given the commission. It's expected that the mural will be completed later today. Banksy may or may not be in town for the Lazarides show on Houston and Bowery, but it's possible he's nearby and watching the painting go up.

Knowledge Cartography

Knowledge Cartography is part of a PhD research on the visual representation of knowledge. The aim of the research is to extend the cartographic metaphor beyond visual analogy, and to expose it as a narrative model and tool to intervene in complex, heterogeneous, dynamic realities, just like those of human geography.

The map is thus not only a passive representation of reality but a tool for the production of meaning. Just like a text, the map makes selections on reality, distorts events, classifies and clarifies the world in order to selections better tell a particular aspect of a territory, an event, a space.

The images shown here are screenshots taken from ATLAS, the application that's being developed to explore the possibilities of the application of a cartographic metaphor to the realms of knowledge. The concept of ATLAS in this context doesn't only depict a list of maps, but rather a system of representations of space, a communication device aimed at representing complex contexts through the use of many partial overlapping narrations: a network of maps, diagrams, texts and peritexts, combined together to describe the space of research in its multifaceted aspects.

This is Knowledge Cartography

Absolutely thrilling and mysterious creepyness by Goodby Silverstein and Partners + B-Reel. You can only get on between 6pm and 6am, but if you can’t wait try setting your clock to a different timezone.

There's different stages to go through, very nice implementation of interaction although the NumbersSection was kinda hard to pass... "you not only should to LOOK and what's on the walls but also LISTEN to what the voices are saying. And unfortunately there is no one answer- the code is completely randomized! They couldn't just make it easy- you've probably seen that creepy guy come for you 100 times! ahh!" (Definitely worth putting in the phone number. :)

Very vvvery nice work again for Doritos aka SnackStrongProductions
