Brand New: New Logo and Identity for Inner West Council by For The People

Established in 2016, Inner West Council is a local government area located in, as its name implies, the inner western region of (not implied) Sydney, Australia. The new council incorporates the former local government areas of Marrickville, Leichhardt, and Ashfield into a 14-square-mile (35-square-kilometer) area that is home to 195,000 residents that make up a “uniquely creative community with vibrant and diverse neighbourhoods living side-by-side in harmony”. Earlier this year, Inner West Council introduced a new identity designed by Sydney-based For The People.

Pixel Canals – Low Poly Game Level – 3D model by Seafoam (@seafoam)

This took a long time to make! The hardest part was making it look fine on sketchfab. Also I’m submitting this to the January contest in February…. yeah. But it still fits the criteria!I imagined a more “Yakuza” games style level, where the same space acts as a hub world and a fighting arena. Also I took huge influence from Tokyo-to from jet set radio.Named Echo City, built on the pacific ocean by business congloramates to act as a city state and a tax haven. As it is a new nation all of the citizens are immigrants, so that explains the multilingual signs everywhere. This is the same setting my other pixel models reside in.Published a month ago

Tokyo 2020 unveils first ever animated pictograms used in Olympics’ history

Hell to the yes! Animated pictograms.

Even if the olympics are cancelled or postponed, TOKYO2020 is still a game changer in my mind.

The 73 kinetic icons designed by Masaaki Hiromura and animated by Kota Iguchi each show their sport in motion, representing 22 Paralympic sports and 33 Olympic sports.

Japanese student creates Traditional Japan Bicycle

Lattice work seen in tea ceremony rooms finally gets to see the city streets.

Japan is often viewed as a glorious amalgamation of the old and the new, where hoodies are designed to look like traditional kimono and ukiyo-e prints feature Star Wars characters.

This restyling of old traditions is something that recently inspired one talented Japanese student to realise his own take on “Modern Japan” by building the bicycle of his dreams.

Setting it as an end-goal for his graduation project, Enji, who goes by @enjiblossomlily online, says he has now fulfilled his task of “melding a bicycle with a traditional craft”, and the result is this spectacular two-wheeler below.
