Volkswagen ABS – Print Campaign

Such a smart idea from ACmcgarrybowen for Volkswagen in Mexico. It shows how an Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) works, using a very clever visual trick.

Check it out below.

BASIC Moves – Website

BASIC is a branding and digital design agency who do some incredible work. To show their skills, as well as announce to the world that they had a new office, they turned to their core competency – building beautiful multimedia experiences.

This announcement takes the form of a website, where the user can investigate the thinking behind BASIC’s new building as well as hear sound clips and see beautiful images of the space itself. We especially love the way the website blends photography, design and web to create an incredibly enriching, involving experience.

You can visit the site here.

And to see more of BASIC’s work, we do suggest you visit their main site here.

Missing – Interactive True Crime Story

This use of the web to tell a story is something that makes us very excited. It tells the terribly sad true crime story of the disappearance Wendy Jane Pfeiffer, a young Australian girl.

As you navigate through the story, you uncover what really happened to her. This brings the story to life in a way you could never imagine, no longer just static words on a page or a salacious story in a magazine – this is a truly interactive way to immerse yourself in the story.

If you’ve got ten minutes to spare, we strongly suggest you check this out – it’s incredible!

Swiss Type Faces – Type Life Magazine

Calling all typography nerds! This post is for you. These images come from a magazine created by Swiss Type Faces, which is (you guessed it…) a Swiss-based design company that focuses on type faces.

If you’re a fan of typography and design like we are, then look no further!

You can see more of their awesome (incredibly Swiss) work on their website here.

SHSadler – Photography

Wow! What a novel take on portraiture. This work by SHSadler for Schön! magazine takes the idea of beauty and repackages in an incredibly interesting and challenging way. SHSadler is a photography duo in LA who primarily work together on what they call, ‘the sculptural form of the nude’, a simple statement, yet one that results in a number of potential artistic directions.

It may not have been easy to shoot, but it really makes such a bold statement. You can see more of SHSadler’s incredible work on their website here. Be aware – because they work on nudes this site would be considered NSFW!
