Savage Oil Like Artworks by Greg Rutkowski

Savage Oil Like Artworks by Greg Rutkowski

While surfing the web I ran into the work of Polish artist Greg Rutkowski and it was a blast. Greg comes up with SAVAGE artworks that resemble the use of oils and the finish products are never less than masterpieces.

His themes range from fantasy, badass dragons that would eat up Daenerys dragons in one bite, to World War scenes. I must say, I’m amazed by his illustrations and I’ll most definitely be following him for more from now on! These are only a handful of his pieces… for more of it, please visit his portfolio at ArtStation! Cheers. 😉

Before we zoom in on this week’s new music, I should mention that registration for SXSW 2018 is now open. If you haven’t already done it, now is the best time to register for SXSW 2018 and book your housing. Prices are at their lowest when you book in advance, and downtown hotel rooms are still available.

Frankie Rose will release her third album called Cage Tropical to showcase her narcotic pop vocals. Veteran singer-songwriter Paul Kelly also has a new album dropping titled Life is Fine.

Each week we pick one new release and make a playlist for fans incorporating new music from past SXSW artists for them to discover. This week, we’re selecting a indie-rock playlist inspired by The Cribs whose new album 24-7 Rock Star Shit is getting released this Friday. Go ahead and give it a listen because these playlists will only be active for seven days before we pick a new artist to focus on. Follow us on Spotify to keep up with our playlists, and be sure to follow the playlist.

Minimalist Architecture of the Fundação Iberê Camargo Building

Minimalist Architecture of the Fundação Iberê Camargo Building

I am a fan of minimalist architecture and design. I also love when my hometown gets featured which doesn’t happen that often. Arthur Kolbetz shared a post on his Behance page about the Fundação Iberê Camargo building in Porto Alegre. The photos highlight the exquisite look of the building, all in white concrete with simple forms, almost no windows and a lot of character. I don’t know if that  could be considered minimalist architecture but it definitely looks like nothing else, check it out.

About the Fundação Iberê Camargo

Created in 1995, one year after the artist’s death, it not only aims to make people know Camargo’s art but also intends to stimulate reflections on the contemporary artistic production, through displays, courses, seminars and meetings.

The headquarters and museum building of the Iberê Camargo Foundation were designed by Pritzker Prize–winning Portuguese architect Álvaro Siza. Before the inauguration of the building in May 2008, the foundation was operating in the late artist’s home, also in Porto Alegre. The new building is located on the bank of Guaíba Lake.

Web Design & UI/UX: Explore the Moon

Web Design & UI/UX: Explore the Moon

Starting the week with a Web Design & UI/UX project that is more of a concept by Moscow-based 108 Studio. Let me rephrase this by saying that the concept is pretty detailed and going in-depth about our beloved Moon. With the monotone background and contrast, I just love the micro-interactions for the image carousel and button clicks. It truly enhances the whole desktop experience.

108 Studio is a web design & development studio based in Moscow, Russian Federation. We are looking forward to see more from them, give them a follow on Behance.

‘Explore the Moon’ from ‘Moon Science Museum’ is a project that collects information about our planet Earth’s bewitching and lonely natural satellite — the Moon. This glowing ball in the night skyline stores a lot of mysteries and riddles, that are yet to be revealed.

Landscape Design by Jadrien Cousens

Landscape Design by Jadrien Cousens

Most major movies out there are filled with special effects in all kinds of forms. It might be a fully computer generated character, it my big a massive spaceship above New York, but one of the most iconic methods is matte painting and landscape design.

It’s been used since the early days of cinema, and until this day it will be on screen and you don’t even know it. Jadrien Cousens is a very talented landscape artist with amazing pieces in this field. Here are some of his work. For more of it and to check some of the films he has worked on, please check his DeviantART and personal site. I hope you enjoy these! Cheers. 😉

Minimalist Design for Nike Desktop and Mobile Concept

Minimalist Design for Nike Desktop and Mobile Concept

I am a fan of minimalist design and the work that Anton Skvortsov shared on his Behance profile for a concept idea for what the Nike store could look like on desktop and mobile is an amazing example of minimal and elegant. It’s hard to evaluate minimalist design when it comes to user testing. Some users might always prefer density rather than focus on less. It’s okay, but some companies can definitely afford that and Nike is a great example of one that I think it could work. Below you can see some images and a bit of the process.

There’s a lot to love about this project, especially the web version. The grid the nice navigation, I also have to point that the designer didn’t take in consideration different display sizes and resolutions. In my opinion the text size is extremely small as well, almost to the point that I don’t know if it could be readable, especially on mobile. That said, I think there’s a lot of good ideas here and they definitely inspired be for some changes on the Abduzeedo redesign I am working on.

In visual arts, music, and other mediums, minimalism is a style that uses pared-down design elements. Minimalism began in post–World War II Western art, most strongly with American visual arts in the 1960s and early 1970s. Wikipedia
