Hyoun Youl Joe

students at Yale unjiversity was asked to design a machine that could create a series of posters. The only parameter was that every poster would be different but produced with the same principles. In other words, students would determine the input, and the machine would create the output. Here you can see Hyoun's idea. I think its fantastic. I really like how every poster will be unique. I love the freedom of the concept and I think the outcome is brilliant. I really like the contrast of the think bold marks against the faint scribbles as when the marker would be slowing down back to its position.

cool clocks

you'll never be bored of looking at the time with this beauty.
Designed for clock manufacturer Nextime, the “Insert” by designer Leo Yiu is a simple, but at the same time unique, wall clock, which is sliced from one side to create a flat edge for mounting in a way as if inserted in the wall. Protruding at an angle from the wall it’s mounted on, the clock by the Hong Kong-based designer alters the viewing angle to present “a simple idea to change the way we see the clock.”
