Kope | Figgins Photography

Cape Town’s own Kope | Figgins are an up-and-coming photography duo who not only create beautiful images, but also have a sense of humour.

To get an idea of their humour – check out their website, a nod to the Internet circa 1997 and try not to laugh out loud.

They do a lot of fashion and portraiture, with their signature crisp 90s aesthetic. Great, great work.

For a more up-to-date angle on their work, check out their tumblr, which they add to often.

Surprising Monsters Calling Home

Giving a small Indie band a big break is not something you expect a car company to do, but this year – Honda threw us all for a loop!

After seeing how the band Monsters Calling Home recorded an entire music video in their Honda van, Honda decided to surprise them with an opportunity they never would have expected.

This is the kind of advertising we like – brands spending their money on doing good for their consumers, giving back and rewarding them for being loyal. We don’t want to spoil the ending for you, so check out the music video below!

 

Nobutaka Aozaki – From Here to There

In the world of Google Maps, we hardly ever ask for directions any more, and in a way that means we lost out on interesting cultural knowledge or local hideaways that no cellphone could ever tell you about.

Japanese artist, Nobutaka Aozaki has railed against this though, and with his work ‘From Here to There’ – he is bringing citizen-drawn maps back. Using loads and loads of pieces of paper, Aozaki is recreating a map of Manhattan, using directions from locals drawn on pieces of paper.

It’s a painstaking, difficult project but it is just so clever.

Ben Johnston – Adweek Type Mural

Locally-born talent Ben Johnston is a master of type design. Check out his work below. In just fifteen hours he designed and painted this brilliant quote from Ferris Bueller, for the Project:Rhino deskspace in Toronto, Canada.

Beautiful, beautiful work! For more from Ben, check out his Behance profile here.
