iPad: Digital Magazine Motion Cover, etc

Check out this sample of an interactive feature spread for the iPad.  It’s seriously going to be game time for motion graphics designers!  So exciting– behind the scenes here.

Together with co-directors Cory Strassburger and Ming Hsiung, we [Alexx Henry] produced a motion magazine cover and feature spread for Viv Mag – an all digital magazine, which would allow us to create content that will be able to live on the iPad and other tablet devices where digital magazines can live.

Radius x Tree of Charge

Trees play an important role in Mother Nature, turning carbon dioxide into oxygen, which keeps us alive. So it sort of makes sense that when looking for something to keep our vital electronics alive, we might just turn to something that already has this job. Enter Radius’ Tree of Charge, an inventive sample of fake forestry that can serve as an electrical root for everything from you cell phone to your iPod, while leaving plenty of branches to hang any other knickknacks you just can’t live without.

Camouflage Toolbox

The proper case is a vital part of keeping your tools in top condition, so store them with military precision in this Camouflage Toolbox by Alice Supply Co. Blend in with your surroundings to effectively wage war on loose screws, leaky faucets and protruding nails — you never know when you’ll need to take that arsenal of wrenches, hammers, and wingnuts into the home improvement jungle. And if you’re ever forced to go behind enemy lines with just a ball-peen hammer and nerves of steel, you’ll be ready.

Thriller Headphones

In the wake of Michael Jackson’s death, we’ve started to focus on the drama that still surrounds the singer – his will, the question of what to do with his non-biological children, why he suffered cardiac arrest, and so on. However, it is important not to forget that the reason we all loved the King of Pop is because of his talent as a singer, a dancer, and an all-around performer. The first time he first entered your home whether it was via MTV or through your stereo speakers, was not easy to forget…

johnnylighthands6.jpgAt least it wasn’t for me. My first memory of the singer was when I watched the video for Thriller…at age three. All I remember was seeing those yellow eyes and fangs and running terrified behind the couch. It wasn’t a good first impression, though later, I fell in love with the short film. Not longer after, I was jamming out and dancing around the living room to “Beat It,” and “Wanna Be Startin’ Somethin’.” So, when I discovered the Thriller Headphones designed by Johnny Lighthands and built by ATOM Creative Solutions, I couldn’t help but smile.

The headphones, which won the Nokia headset design competition in 2008, feature that gravestones, zombies, and that creepy, yellow-eyed wolf bursting through the door. Though only one pair was made by Nokia into a working model, we hope that Jackson’s passing inspires Nokia to produce at least a limited-edition run of the freaky-awesome headphones.

Any good green guy or gal knows that energy preservation is a huge part of being environmentally conscious. Increasing your awareness also goes a long way towards decreasing your electric bill. While you may think you’ve got a handle on the amount of electricity coursing through the wires in your home, you could probably stand to consume even less than that which is currently flowing. That’s where the Wattcher comes in. The simple yet sleek plug-in device designed by Marcel Wanders displays the amount of energy being utilized by all the gadgets and gizmos sucking at your sockets, giving those who typically eat up energy a great way to monitor and learn how much the simple act of turning off non-essential items can make a difference in the world around them and inside their wallet. Sexy looking, too.

Drum Meister iPhone App

Owning an iPhone isn’t exactly a sign that you march to the beat of a different drummer, but the apps you choose certainly can go a long way towards showing that you slide through life at your own tempo. The new Drum Meister app by Seung yi Lee can help illustrate that tempo, as a realistic drum kit application that allows you to recreate whatever rhythmic pace you feel suits you. Users are provided with an impressive interface where they can arrange their own set and bang the skins to their hearts content and even record and playback their fine percussive work. So whether you’re slamming the cymbals on a solo or slapping around some snare action you’ll never be at a loss to prove that you indeed have got the beat. Drum circles just got a drastic makeover.
