Digital Baristas

For my 5th and final Philippine creative scene series showcasing the talented guys I met out in Manila there I introduce you to Inksurge.

The design studio is the moniker of creative team Rex and Jois who also call themselves Digital Baristas due to their shared love of great coffee.

The excellent lightbox work shown above was from their first solo show ‘General Observations’ at Pablo Gallery in Taguig, Philippines.

Exhibition

Panic Buying!

Next up in my Philippines creative scene series is Everywhere We Shoot the moniker of husband and wife team Ryan Vergara and Garovs Garrovillo.

Their practice is a strong mix of Design, Motion & Photography and this coming Thursday July 3rd is the opening of their exhibition ‘Panic Buying’.

Everywhere We Shoot’s obsession with grocery items continue in their second solo exhibit, Panic Buying!. The exhibit’s theme is inspired by Everywhere We Shoot’s shopping habits as a married couple. While most people panic-buy for security reasons, they fall into the habit when enticed by attractive packaging and ridiculous promos.

If last year’s Foods showcased food in its most awkward glory – stripped bare of artifice and set against a bright backdrop, Panic Buying! reimagines the frenzied atmosphere in a grocery store and the delirious state a shopper gets when exposed to this setting. A series of light boxes with aluminium lining are put together to mimic a Juice & Dairy section, but a closer look reveals distorted and multiplied packaging labels – an interpretation of the confusion when presented with too many choices. The products that were taken during the hoarding were shaken out of their packaging and haphazardly styled, resulting in a colorful, visually striking mess.

It’s been a yearly tradition for Everywhere We Shoot to release “Super Limited Edition” merchandise. This year, they’re launching a special sculpture exclusively for the exhibit: a pile of leftover trash shaped in resin and coated with metallic paint. After all, it’s what Everywhere We Shoot does best – recognizing beauty in the most unlikely objects. (Words by Sunshine Reyes)

I got back from a trip to Philippines about a month or so ago now and being introduced to a whole new world of amazing creatives (artists/designers & photographers etc.), so I thought I’d share the brilliant work of the guys I met out there.

First up is Dan Matutina (aka Twistedfork), who I first stumbled across on the ADC Young Guns winners list 2013 and who’s work I instantly fell in love with for his use of geometric forms, textures and for his love of video games.

He has also co-founded the design studio Plus63 and has just been snapped up by the excellent Agent Pekka illustration reps based out of Helsinki. Great Stuff!

Recollection

Stumbled across this stunning music video for ‘Keep Shelly in Athens‘ by Directing duo Lamar + Nik.

Akin to what I believe there’s something really satisfying about the fact that in all of their video’s, they practically make everything with no CGI involvement what so ever. Beautiful!

I have been a huge fan of Sam Hofman‘s work for a few years now and I have also had the pleasure of collaborating with him on a couple of projects this year.

So I thought why not share the love and let you revel in his work too. Enjoy!
