Famous Visual Services

Famous Visual Services

As well as a rather nice new website, Melbourne based studio, Famous Visual Services have a cool set of business cards, each with a slightly different colour shade across the back.

First they printed a solid fluoro yellow on all 250 cards. They then ran the cards back through the press adding dollops of fluoro red to the press as the cards were running. The result is a 250 step gradation from yellow to red across the print run. The name details were then letterpress printed in black.

The flowers are placed around the water container so that it seems as if they are growing directly from the plate.

The Butterfly Collector

I was informed just the other day about The Curator’s Code — a formalised and somewhat over-complicated system, involving special unicode characters generated by a bookmarklet, designed to encourage “curational” bloggers to provide proper attribution to the source of their material.

Whilst I have no doubt its aims are well-meaning, my main objection to The Curator’s Code is not its rather convoluted approach, but its apparent emphasis on the attribution for discovery rather than the more crucially neglected issue of proper attribution for creation.

In light of this I thought I would share with you my process for attribution — a simple little system not involving special characters or secret handshakes — which I call my “Collector’s Code” (because I’m not overly keen on the term “curator”).
