You can’t have failed to notice that Brexit hasn’t gone as smoothly as many of us would have liked. Back in June 2016 – when the world was young and it felt like we had our entire lives ahead of us – leavers and remainers alike hoped the situation would resolve itself quickly, effectively, and amicably.

Director and graphic artist Nicolas Ménard has done it again. And this time it comes in the form of a one-minute stop-motion animation, shot entirely in-camera featuring hundreds of miniatures for Mexican beer brand Corona. Arguably one of Mexico’s most recognisable brands, the film is narrated by Gael García Bernal and shows how Corona is intertwined in Mexico’s history.

Collletttivo is self-described by its members as “something we haven’t yet been able to define.” A type foundry built on an open source philosophy — where designs can be modified online by others — the collective is “an aggregation of people doing a variety of things that revolve around typography.” Established in 2017, Collletttivo started as an online type portfolio where its early members could share their design experiments. Since then, the group has condensed into a smaller but more active collective of seven Milan-based creatives working on projects, workshops and talks, not to mention several other designers who have released their typefaces on the website which are available to download for free!

From 2013-2018, Erik Brandt exhibited the work of well-known and up and coming designers on a piece of cedar board attached, by himself, to the side of his garage in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The self-initiated exhibition space, titled “_Ficciones Typografika_”:https://www.itsnicethat.com/articles/ficciones-typografika-behind-the-scenes, began as an invite-only project before being opened to submissions and rapidly grew into a “who’s who” of experimental typographic practice within the global design community.

Even the most ardent and hardened of southerners has to admit that Manchester is one of the UK’s great cities. Blessed with an amazing cathedral, an abundance of brilliant pubs and an immense cultural history, we’re always looking for an excuse to hop on the Pendolino from Euston on a Friday evening. Now we have another one.

When Canada’s BC Children’s Hospital conceived of its new pediatric care hub, it featured a prominent and innovative “arts enhancement” element to its design. An interactive, gesture-driven installation that blends art, animation and immersive play, the Virtual Aquarium project was created for the Emergency Department waiting room for the new Acute Care Centre. The aim was to create a beautiful, relaxing and immersive large-scale digital art installation that provides pediatric patients a playful digital environment that soothes, calms and distracts.

When most of us think of family photography, we think of images imbued with nostalgic memories of warm childhood houses and an age of innocence. Photographer Charles-Henry Bédué uses this concept as a starting point for his ongoing series _The House of Happiness_, but instead of capturing the happy connotations of domestic life, he photographs the darker, somewhat disturbing corners of the family home.

As babies, we explore our surroundings, understanding how the world works. We discover the meanings of various signs and symbols, and learn how to use certain objects. Eventually, connecting an object’s appearance with what it actually does (its function) becomes second nature. Pushing a button will lead to a reaction; a handle on a drawer is there to be pulled; red means stop. And then you get to the more complex things – how do we learn how to use taps when some of them are automatic, while others require twisting, pulling, pushing or even tapping (yes, those exist and they mess with your minds!)? And even more mind boggling, how are we supposed to instinctively know what to do with those small, flat, rectangular objects they call smartphones?

Children learn differently than adults, therefore if we want to teach them to code, we need to use an approach suitable to their needs. Adults’ coding courses usually start with explaining building blocks, such as data types, variables, and functions, however this teaching method doesn’t fit well with most kids.

london-based 3D artist and animation director martin salfity, together with nico warschauer, present hardcore squidgy, a fantastically strange film that sees squidgy creatures interact with hard surfaces. as a self-initiated project, the goal was to explore, learn and eventually discover something unique. they embarked themselves on a journey through abstract CGI and digital sound FX and music that resulted in this mixture of colors, shapes and textures that create contrasting impressions as they move around somewhat familiar territories.

The drones rise all at once, 30 strong, the domes of light on their undercarriages glowing 30 different hues—like luminescent candy sprinkles against the gray, dusky sky. Then they pause, suspended in the air. And after a couple seconds of hovering, they begin to move as one.
