Smoke Bomb by Ken hermann

Is that smoke I smell?

Smoke bombs…The tools of football hooligans and antisocial youths. The photographer Ken Hermann however has managed to put a more artsy twist on the colourful clouds of smoke. He sets them off in industrial environments and captures them as they are manipulated by the wind to disperse in different directions.

Transgenre

Frameline’s striking, new visual identity really captures the colourful and energetic nature of its brand, as the United States’ first and longest running film festival devoted to LGBTQ work. Developed by design studio Mucho, the copy and typeface are used to highlight the marriage of film and LGBTQ culture for the annual festival, through catchy phrases like ‘Transgenre’.

The Vintage Images of The British Library

You’d expect a library containing thousands of books from the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries to have access to some pretty cool images, right? Well now you do too! Through the use of The British Library’s bot, the ‘mechanical curator’, over a million copyright-free images from their digitised books have been made available on Flickr.  A group of volunteers have also catalogued the images and organised them into themes and categories.

The Chouinard Equipment Co.

A Natural Fit for Patagonia

Patagonia’s newest Workwear line is a tribute to the brand’s roots and a statement of social and environmental responsibility. Its style references the climbing tools and work clothing originally made by its founder, Yvon Chouinard, while the products are made from state-of-the-art hemp fabric.  “The Iron Forge Hemp” is combined with recycled polyester and organic cotton to provide a stylish alternative to the Carhartt and Dickies equivalents.

Where the Royals Nest

Miniature bird palaces, as featured in Colossal, were widely used in Ottoman architecture in Turkey from the 17th to the 19th century. They were attached to the exteriors of public buildings such as mosques and schools to mimic some of the country’s larger structures. They were not only used to provide shelter for birds, but also to protect building walls from bird droppings and serve as religious good luck charms.
