Dave's kladblog is the inspirational blog of myself and my company Ontwerp in Uitvoering (Design in Progress). I focus on visualization through animation, illustration and sculptures. But I love to do everything! This blog will contain bits about design, branding, applied arts, media, managing creativity and lots more. Have fun!

"Connecting" documentary

The 18 minute "Connecting" documentary is an exploration of the future of Interaction Design and User Experience from some of the industry's thought leaders. As the role of software is catapulting forward, Interaction Design is seen to be not only increasing in importance dramatically, but also expected to play a leading role in shaping the coming "Internet of things." Ultimately, when the digital and physical worlds become one, humans along with technology are potentially on the path to becoming a "super organism" capable of influencing and enabling a broad spectrum of new behaviors in the world. - Text from Basset & Partners (Vimeo)

Fashion carrousel

It's nice when you have enough budget to realize your ideas. Louis Vuitton made quite an impression with his presentation. Hopefully the carrousel did not distract too much from the collection. Here is a link where the focus is more on fashion than the carrousel.

Window printer

Germany-based designer Alex Weber of creative agency The Future of Everything created a small machine that draws directly onto windows. "Der Kritzler", from the word “Kritzeln” which is German for scribble, was made using many tools and electronic parts, and programmed with an open source programming software Processing. More on "Der Kritzler" and how to build it (!!!) can be found here. - Text from Designtaxi.com

Hi tech fashion

Already from a few years ago but still very impressive. Fashion designer Hussein Chalayan created "transformer dresses" which leap through three decades of fashion. These dresses combine art and technique to the very extreme. Let's hope the software doesn't get infected by a virus so that the dress will malfunction!

Brands designed by users



User interaction in graphic design? This article shows two bold new logo and branding experiments which allow users to redesign the mark. So how are designers approaching the launch of a community, rather than just a design? It's funny that the article itself doesn't go into details on the consequences of user interaction in brand design. So after you've read the article do keep on reading on the comments. The discussion in those comments about the "death of design" or "aesthetics" give the article more depth and therefor make it more relevant.
