COP15 Copenhagen identity

If you were wondering who was responsible for the striking logo and visual identity for the United Nations Climate Change Conference 2009, then it is Copenhagen/New York based design partnership, NR2154.

COP15 Copenhagen identity

“The logo symbolises the blue planet. A network of lines – one for each nation in the UN – make up a complex structure heading towards unrest or balance.”

Generative identity software, developed in collaboration with okdeluxe and shiftcontrol, adds dynamic, real-time movement to the logo, animating it’s rigid grid with a series of parameters like flocking and flow fields.

The animation software is customizable to render out a large variety of styles and moods in formats useable for broadcast HD-TV and vector-graphics for printed media.

Connected

Another awesome find from Daniel Gray (aka Binky the doormat), which I couldn’t resist pinching for my own blog, is this poster designed by Barq for the short movie Connected, produced by Jens Raunkjær Christensen and Jonas Drotner Mouritsen .

“Connected is a wordless sci-fi-tale following two human figures dressed in protective suits, travelling through a desolate apocalyptic wasteland. They are deeply dependent on each other, since their breathing is shared through two hoses connecting their helmets. As the journey continues they are slowly weakened. In the distance a stranger is is watching their desperate battle, and an unpleasant surprise is waiting.”

Philco PC

The retrocool Philco PC concept from SchultzeWORKS designstudio takes it’s inspiration from the 1954 design classic Philco Predicta TV. It’s just such a shame that it runs on Windows!

Nice work to be found at Australian design studio, A Friend of Mine, including this business card for Carla Grbac, printed with raised ink to form a texture that echos the tactile qualities of her woven jewellery pieces.
