Joe's 3 C's (#16)

Post by Joe Wigzell » Thu Jan 17, 2013 3:19 pm

Hi hey hello,

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

Each week I will 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 probably 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!


On this day in history:
1942 - Muhammad Ali [Cassius Clay], U.S. boxer, "The Greatest," who is the only three-time heavyweight champion was born.
1773 - Captain James Cook becomes the first person to cross the Antarctic Circle.

Something Creative...

'Nuvem (clouds)' a public installation by Eduardo Coimbra...

I really liked this street installation and the creative use of a large scale print to brighten up a public area. Here is a snippet from the site that I found it:
For this piece, entitled Nuvem (Cloud), the artist used iron, translucent canvas printing, fluorescent lamps, and mirrors, spread across five light boxes that measured about 17 square feet. Visitors could walk past, around, and in between the glowing walls, in which Coimbra brought the sky down to the ground for his audience to explore. During the day, the mirrored panels reflected the bright lights of a sunny day, while in the later hours, the boxes were illuminated to mimic that same brightness, set against the darkness of night.
Something Cool...

Here's a link to a Cool website for the artist Aakash Nihalani (I like the intro page!). His work is fun and simple, using 2D shapes to create interesting 3D illusions.
Below is an example of his work.

Something Commercial...

Here's an interesting product to aid you in the application of large adhesive prints. If this is something you do on a regular basis this product looks great from the video. Has anyone tried it or seen anything similar?

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

Thank you for reading!

Until next time...
(I'm away next week so you poor people will have to go without me :cry: although I'll be back with a renewed vigor after)

Joe's chuckles...


I've just started an engraving course.
There's loads to learn though and so far we've hardly scratched the surface!


Following on from last week, another image for chuckles (might have to make the image a permanent feature!?)...
