Wedding 360 / SML Projects (Set)

Wedding Invitations for the wedding of Jen Chen + Peter Evans.

 

Concept

The wedding invitation comes as a pack of postcards.

 

Post Card Form factor

 

All the post cards are designed to meet US Postal Service standards. So these invitations double-duty as wish you were here postcards where the guest can send out at the event.

 

Post Card 1: The Roast

Post Card 2: The Celebration

Post Card 3: The Finale

Post Card 4: The RSVP

Post Card 4: The RSVP: Back. Pre-printed with the address where the card ought to be sent back.

Post Card 5: Festivity. The all-purpose postcard for the guests to keep if they have decided to mailed the first 3 postcards as wish you were here from the event.

 

Wedding Identity / Logo

 

Double Happiness (Google Image Search) reinterpreted using lines and geometric shapes. Graphically, the traditional symbol for wedding literally unite the first names of the woman and the man.

 

The logo also draws inpsiration from the icons for the male and female symbols. This influence is much more apparent when you flip the logo.

 

Cost

 

Instead of offset-printing, we printed these with a commercial postcard press (Modern Postcard). The bride only needed 120 sets of these, which is far less than the 250 minimum run.

 

All the postcards together cost 1,500 to print — it's a great deal when you consider offset-printing a limited-run offset printjob for the same design on a single card will easily cost more than 1,000.

 

Translation: The bride saved a lot of money and I've got more than a hundred extra for my portfolio.

SML Reference

 

Sex refers to the male and female duality of biology and reproduction. Unlike organisms that only have the ability to reproduce asexually, sexed male and female pairs have the ability to produce offspring through meiosis and fertilization. The two sexes attract one another and communicate their readiness to procreate through differences in their biology.

 

An organism’s sex reflects its biological function in reproduction, not its sexuality or other behavior. The female sex is defined as the one which produces the larger gamete and which typically bears the offspring. In contrast, the male sex has a smaller gamete and rarely bears offspring. In some animals, sex may be assigned to specific structures rather than the entire organism. Earthworms, for example, are normally hermaphrodites.

SML Pro Blog: Synergy: an unfocused approach to learning about oneself

blog.seeminglee.com/2009/09/synergy-unfocused-approach-to...

 

A lot of people prefer web destinations to have a very specific focus, but it appears that I am inherently an unfocused person, and therefore my web destinations also are rather unfocused.

 

In the beginning, SML Pro Blog was just the SML Blog, and it contains pretty much everything that my life contains, until I am getting some negative feedbacks from professional colleagues who wish not have their photos appear next to blog posts relating to my gay activities, which is when SML Gay Blog was born. Then some folks who got really annoyed with my massive photography output, and so SML Photo Blog was born. Then after a while I started to have so many blogs that I cannot keep track on, so I have now reconsolidated the SML Thank You and SML Notebook back into this blog, because it soon became *very* challenging to manage them all.

 

Conversely, I take a very-me approach when it comes to content on Flickr. I post pretty much everything onto it: my designs, my photography, my hacks, my screenshots, and source of inspiration all bundled up together. It's me, after all. By not separating these data, I gain a much better insight into which of my stuff is good and 'interesting' to folks.

 

I know far too many people who keep a separate Flickr profile for their "professional" life vs their "play" life but when I view the content, I can't tell the difference and reason as to why they are separate. Consolidation is good. Just filter, and tag. I think that via my very unfocused postings, I have successfully cross-marketed my designs to people who came to my stream because of my abstract photography; or that they discovered that I am much much more than a photojournalist who run around events.

 

Because of this content cross-pollination, I also learned based on my data that what people find to be interesting is also very all-across the board, and that is interesting to me. I made screenshots of the top 5 pages from the 500 Most Interesting Flickr (set) and bundled them together, and it provides a great sign-post as to where I should be headed next.

Today is my birthday so naturally I am getting greetings all over the globe. This is my thank you card to all of you!!!!

 

See blog post SML Pro Blog: SML Thank You / 2009-09-25 / SML about the origin of this design.

Desktop / OS: Advanced mode in KDE 3.42 / EEEPC 702 Xandros

Design elements created using Inkscape and GIMP. Everything was pieced together playing with KDE settings.

 

This whole set came into being after fiinding some really interesting tools + settings in GIMP that has never appeared in Photoshop. In this paritcular case, it was a spiral gradient settings. That's the connected theme throughout these four images. It was in fact also the only tool used.

 

More interestingly, I don't remember anything from Photoshop releases in recent years that got me obsessed like this - but maybe it's because I haven't quite understood the GIMP's way of doing things so that I can use it like I do with Photoshop: do 90%+ of my tasks with curve adjustment layers and get on with real tasks at hand. :)

Arthur’s Landing (MySpace) is a group of musicians, all of whom worked at various times in various contexts with the late Arthur Russell (Wikipedia), a cellist and composer from Iowa who lived on the Lower East Side for most of the later part of his too-short life. Russell brought together the worlds of dance, pop, and folk with that of downtown’s “new music,” and fused Western and Eastern musical traditions, driven by his engagement with Buddhist thought and practice. He collaborated often with Allen Ginsberg, and Phillip Glass was also an early mentor. Characteristic of Russell's method was his tendency to work hard and long, and he rarely considered anything finished. What was his unending pursuit of the ineffable becomes a challenge and inspiration for the Arthur’s Landing ensemble. It is hard to resist the ambition and humor behind compositions with titles like “Temple of Meaning,” “Terrace of Intelligibility,” and “Hop on Down to Petland.” Russell is the focus of the feature-length 2008 documentary directed by Matt Wolf, Wild Combination. A biography by Tim Lawrence, Hold Onto Your Dreams, is due out this year.

 

The Arthur’s Landing ensemble will perform pop songs and parts of a longer instrumental work called “Singing Tractors” and will be available following the performance to answer questions about Russell’s life and work.

 

Arthur’s Landing (songs by Arthur Russell)

Joyce Bowden: voice

Steven Hall: voice, guitar

Ernie Brooks: voice ,bass

John Scherman: lead guitar

Bill Ruyle: drums, hammered dulcimer

Mustafa Ahmed: percussion

Peter Zummo: voice, trombone

Alex Waterman: cello

 

Original post-minimalist composer Elodie Lauten, composer of the 2003 opera Waking in New York based on a selection of Allen Ginsberg poems about New York City, opens this program performing her electronic piece S.O.S.W.T.C. Written in reaction to the 9/11 tragedy, S.O.S.W.T.C evokes the emotion of that memory with the use of concrete and indefinite pitch percussion samples.

 

In April 2009 Lauten was featured along with Yoko Ono in the “Women Forward” exhibition in Williamsburg. In March 2009 she premiered her Two-cents Opera at Theater for the New City. Lauten also collaborated frequently with Arthur Russell, singing and playing keyboards with him in various ensembles during the 1980s.

Wedding 360 / SML Projects (Set)

Wedding Invitations for the wedding of Jen Chen + Peter Evans.

 

Concept

The wedding invitation comes as a pack of postcards.

 

Typography

 

Bickham Script Pro is used to set a formal line of text to poke fun of the typically formal and often unreadable letterpress invites.

 

Helvetica Neue Std is used to recreate the same information in what an information designer would do given the same situation.

 

Bodoni 26 from P22 is used to create the title of the event. As a serif, it also functions as the link between the script face and the sans serif.

 

The idea of combining a script face with a modern face is to reinforce the theme which runs through the wedding: a synergy of masculine + feminine, modern + traditional, western + chinese, yin + yang.

 

Post Card Form factor

 

All the post cards are designed to meet US Postal Service standards. So these invitations double-duty as wish you were here postcards where the guest can send out at the event.

 

Post Card 1: The Roast

Post Card 2: The Celebration

Post Card 3: The Finale

Post Card 4: The RSVP

Post Card 4: The RSVP: Back. Pre-printed with the address where the card ought to be sent back.

Post Card 5: Festivity. The all-purpose postcard for the guests to keep if they have decided to mailed the first 3 postcards as wish you were here from the event.

 

Wedding Identity / Logo

 

Double Happiness (Google Image Search) reinterpreted using lines and geometric shapes. Graphically, the traditional symbol for wedding literally unite the first names of the woman and the man.

 

The logo also draws inpsiration from the icons for the male and female symbols. This influence is much more apparent when you flip the logo.

 

Cost

 

Instead of offset-printing, we printed these with a commercial postcard press (Modern Postcard). The bride only needed 120 sets of these, which is far less than the 250 minimum run.

 

All the postcards together cost 1,500 to print — it's a great deal when you consider offset-printing a limited-run offset printjob for the same design on a single card will easily cost more than 1,000.

 

Translation: The bride saved a lot of money and I've got more than a hundred extra for my portfolio.

SML’s obsession with G continues.

    

G says that he likes the rendering. He is now using it as his Facebook profile photo. But SML feels that particular rendering is not really a reflection of who G is.

    

SML asked if G has a choice, which colors would those be. G said he likes black, white, and blue. SML asked which kinds of blue? G said gray blue. SML observed that G likes Olek, and Olek has a lot of camouflaged crochet species. So SML picked a range of gray blues which would appear like camouflaged.

    

G said that he wanted to turn these into a Tshirt for himself. So SML picked three Pantone swatches blue black to make silkscreening easy. Also by request, designator switched to GWTF — which stands for Generation WTF, an awesome group on Facebook about everything awesome and sweet.

    

The Pantone specs are:

+ GWTF Light Blue: Pantone 628 C

+ GWTF Blue: Pantone 7702 C

+ GWTF Dark Blue: 7700 C

+ GWTF Black: Pantone Process Black C

    

Typography:

+ Helvetica Black. Seems something neutral is good for now. Might switch to Berthold Akzidenz Grotesk later because SML prefers that it has more character, But Akzidenz does not have the weight needed and SML does not yet have the time to draw custom fonts for G yet.

You know why I love nerds? This is why. Programmers and hackers alike tend to have an insane capacity for processing large amounts of data (1), and as such they also have a tendency to read a lot of very random things. And so while most of them lack the design skills to typeset things into typographically sound designs, their creative minds prompt them to create genius ideas even if won’t get an entry in any Graphis annuals anytime soon.

# Notes

1. By definition, programming nerds process data for a living. Simply put, programming is a grammar-specific written language designed to help humans communicate with machines.

Social Retailing® is a concept created by IconNicholson for Nanette Lepore in 2007. It was conceptualized in late 2006 and unveiled at the annual National Retail Federation Show in 2007 (NRF07). It made its first appearance to the public at Bloomingdale's in New York City in March, 2007 during Nanette Lepore's Keds Shoe Launch promotion.

 

The concept was named Time Magazine's Invention fo the Year 2007 and is currently patent-pending.

paul.elliman [at] yale.edu

 

1. Testcard

 

(Week 1-2) Devise a testcard, 8.5x11, for a black & white photocopy machine

 

The card is basically a set of questions or exercises - point, type specimen, line, pattern, half-tone, grey-scale spectrum, moire - designed to test the machine's effectiveness or value.

 

The testcard should explore not only the effective (proper?) function of the photocopier, but also any other qualities (Test the limits of its language/your language)

 

Investigate both the history and teh working mechanics of thsi machine, then (week 3-4) extend the scope of the testcard to include this kind of informaion.

Blender blender.org is my preferred 3d design environment. I use it on all platforms. It's free and once you get a hang of it you would never go back. Together with the abundance of python extensions written for it you can do magic. You can render things with insanely fabulous and super-fast results using the nVidia gelato engine blogs.nvidia.com/gelato/ which uses your nVidia video hardware as a hardware accelerator. Uber cool + free as well!!!

SML Pro Blog: SoundCloud = Innovative Social Network for Musicians

 

SoundCloud is a social network startup for musicians based in Berlin. Originally from Stockholm, the founders created the site after they have grown "tired of getting emails with YouSentIt links or FTP log-ins just to be able to check out our friends latest soon-to-be released tracks."

 

Just a couple of years ago, when you mention music and social networks, the first site that came to mind is MySpace. Yes, MySpace is a social network and they do put much weight on music and musicians, but MySpace fails to innovate beyond implementing comments + music player, and that is barely social. In this blog post I will go through the many innovations SoundCloud brought to the music scene and explain why I like it so much.

BMS SUSTIVA rich-media banner ad: Name Tag

For two years, IconNicholson has been developing the annual online direct-to-consumer marketing campaign for the #1 HIV medication. Sustiva has 40% brand recognition among HIV medications with consumers.

 

These online campaigns integrate closely with BMS’s robust offline marketing to effectively drive patients to request prescription and information about Sustiva from their physicians.

 

More than integrate, IconNicholson’s online campaign makes the entire marketing an interactive experience for patients and caregivers through dynamic banners, focused microsites and the Sustiva Web site, also developed by IconNicholson. The online campaign is synchronized with precise ad buys in target publications to maximize impact on the audience.

 

The animated banners engage and encourage patients to seek specific information in microsites, as well as general information on the Sustiva Web site. The microsites contain a kit of questions patients and caregivers can use in consultation with their doctors, thus raising awareness and ultimately, prescription of Sustiva.

 

IconNicholson has also created the online segment of Sustiva’s “Streets of Success” promotional campaign for two years, generating highly creative concepts and execution every year, which produce energetic consumer action and campaign results
