Different fragments of architectural photography create these Extracts of Local Distance, using a common focal point in the distance from their extensive perspective database, to unite them all.

Here is Chicken Billy’s recipe to his bright vector illustraions: take Hanna Barbera, Hulk Hogan, History Channel, James Brown, Fort Worth Zoo, B.B. King, Hank Williams III, Jesus Christ, a pair of cowboy boots and a pair of jeans, some Mexican beer, your choice, and put them on a surface only using flat vector shapes. Well then… there you have it. Taste like Chicken!
Anita Fontaine has created a brand new iPhone app that lets you unlock secret narratives as you travel through gardens. As you walk through the Fairyland-like map your iPhone displays, you can travel to specific destinations, that, when you succesfully arrive uncover the next part of a hidden story. It’s like a video game treasure map for adults- and I love the concept of layering another reality over the existing one, creating a brand new history that complicates our understandings of space, time and truth. Video after the jump explaining it more in depth!
After having spent the last five years as an art director, graphic designer and illustrator at the creative collective Acne (multimedia mogul that also owns the denim brand), Daniel Carlsten recently launched his own business.

David’s marriage of product and photography based design is sleek and beautiful.
