Elena Heatherwick is a British photographer who works out of London. Today, we’re sharing her work where she photographs and documents midwives in Liberia – capturing the hope, excitement, happiness and stress of their jobs.
As a window into a world, you’ll be hard pressed to find a selection of photographs that do a better job of putting you entirely into something you might never have seen.
We love this piece of work for Airtel by Ogilvy Worldwide. As it’s all about the claim that Airtel is ‘Africa’s Fastest Network’, it shows classic predator and pray animals of Africa circling each other, as if they were a loading animation.
So smart and exactly spot on!
What an undertaking! This site by Yahoo! Japan tells the entire history of the Internet, using a scrollable 3D modelled tower – with interactive information at each step of the way. We’ve included a few screenshots here for you to understand the navigation of the site and how it works, but it really has to be seen to be believed!

One of our Multimedia lecturers, Daniela de Lange, recently collaborated on the following short film, The Diver – for Batch TV.
The Diver: A short story about an insecure young woman who is self-conscious about her passion for diving.
For the diver, what she does and what she loves are two separate things. What she does comes at the cost of what she loves. She loves diving. This love demands an uncomfortable amount of self belief, perseverance and emotional investment. Insecure as she is, she does what she loves in isolation. In this way, the diver represents the things we truly love, but rarely get to, because we are so consumed by what we do.

Picot is an effervescent antacid from Mexico and this print campaign by TeranTBWA is such a smart way to show how it works, using great illustration. In each of these, we see the types of foods that can repeat on you and cause indigestion, battling to get out of these powerful Picot bubbles.
We recently had Just Design present to our second and third year Graphic Design students. They are a multi-disciplinary design agency with a focus on branding, packaging and innovation. They shared some of their work with us, showing the incredibly high benchmark they have set for good packaging practice and the icing on the cake for us was having two Academy alumni, Jolize Jacobs and Maderi Hoffman, presenting the work!

We absolutely love this print campaign by Red Fuse Paris for Protex soap. It uses the fact that Protex protects against 99.9% of germs as a starting point and then shows how 0.1% of any ‘scary’ thing is actually not that dangerous at all.
Such a smart print campaign! We’d love to see more like this!
