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!

Augmented Reality watch


Being a great fan of Augmented Reality I love to see the development of AR in technique as well as its use and purpose. Here is a nice commercial use of AR which really captures the audience imagination. Tissot launched a first AR window at Selfridges, London. To experience it yourself check out www.tissot.ch/reality to download the application at home.

Interactive digital painting


Greyworld, a London-based art collective, worked in partnership with Nokia to create the Paint Wall. But instead of paint, it uses pixels. It's a huge six metre long, two and a half metre high interactive artwork that lets you splash digital content onto a wall of LED lights. Fill a bucket with a photo of yourself and throw it onto the wall. Better still, use a Nokia N8 and the Paint Wall app to blow paint onto the wall. It's all down to infrared cameras, accelerometers and a great deal of clever coding. Seriously fun technology. - Text from Nokia on Youtube

1+1=2


The sharing of knowledge and the combination of abilities may lead to faster and/or better results. Here you have a nice presentation on how this may work. Also for you! Use it to your inspiration or even advantage if you will and make it happen: "1+1=2"! The animation is created by RSA.

Histor promotion


To generate free publicity which justifies a large investment you have to be creative and cutting edge. And even then it can only work if it gets picked up by the potential target group. No details are known on how succesfull it was but what a great brand activation project by Brandbase/Edelman for Histor using a projection mapping technique.
