Hi hey hello,

Welcome to another of 'Joe's 3 C's' :D

In these posts I will try to bring you something Creative, Something Cool and something Commercial.
The format for these 3 things will vary, from images, videos and websites to unique applications, tips tricks and tutorials. Mostly print or 3D related but some things may be thrown in just because they ought to be shared (probably in the Cool part)!
There will be some terrible jokes thrown in at the end too!

Being a bit of a geek for all things design related, hopefully I'll be able to find some interesting bits and bobs to share with you!

Welcome to number 62 of Joe's 3 C's!

Easter has just flown by, hope you all had a nice break (if you got one at all!?).

Something Creative...

A while ago I wanted to create an image with a lot of depth by splitting layers of perspective onto different planes and printing onto multiple pieces of a clear material then stacking them to create a 3D effect.
I had a go on the LEF-20 printing onto 3 small sheets of acrylic, on both the front and back of each piece, then seperating them with a small gap (I only had blue-tac for this bit at the time!). You do not have to print direct (you could use an eco-solvent device and print onto a clear film), but it was easier and quicker for me to use a UV printer.
The 3 pieces

Here are some other examples that I've found:

Check out this amazing use of layers, this time with spray paint! This guy is incredible - Sofles.

If you like it check some of his other work and videos.

Something Cool...

Just a simple t-shirt design for the Cool section a time where there seems to be a lot of hate in the world, why not make a visual stand against it!?
Something Commercial...

I came across a company in the States that do promotional bus wraps with a twist, that I think are super Creative, Cool and that have huge Commercial viability!

They are called Carisma and they mix wraps with 3D prints and illuminations to create stunning and eye-catching advertisements.

Check out one of their videos here

And a couple of images of some of their work:

That's all for this week's Joe's 3 C's!
