Customized USB drives have swept the photography industry by storm in the past few years. They’re a creative, fun way to connect with customers and potential clients, while also solving one of the biggest problems photographer’s have had with digital delivery.

In the past, professional photographers like Marirosa Anderson usually gave out copies of their photos on CDs because they were cheap and easy to burn. But she soon began to notice, like many others in the industry that began to hurt her brand image. After spending so much money with a shoot, clients felt as though this was a rather dull way to have their photos delivered. Not to mention, more people everyday can’t use CDs since the new laptops and desktops aren’t coming with optical CD/DVD drives anymore.

At the same time, simply sending an email proved to be difficult, time consuming, and didn’t offer photographers like Jayson Mullen any opportunity to really spread his brand and company image.

Custom USB drives from USB Memory Direct are a creative, original way to freshen up your digital delivery. They take your logo or brand artwork and customize it just the way you want it onto one of their hundreds of usb styles. Can’t find something you like? UMD can also create customized 3D shaped USB drives as well, so you can basically make your own style.

They do all the work, but you have all the creative freedom to make them fit who you are just right.

Curtis “Talwst” Santiago’s Swagged Out Bossons Head Wall Masks

 

Curtis Santiago (Talwst) has created a series of wall-mounted relief masks out of altered Bossons heads. He has conspicuously attached shutter shades, Ray Bans, and gold fronts to the familiar, idiosyncratic mass-produced sculptures.  A modern take on 15th century Italian Death Masks, the works are Santiago’s farewell to certain aspects of “Swag Rap Culture” and other possibly misguided, recent advents of Popular Culture. Industrialization and watered down culture with Renaissance undertones? Pretty interesting. Talwst will be exhibiting his Swagged Out Bossons Heads at Fuse Gallery in NYC from August 15th through September 12th.

Lord Of The Rings Fan Re-Creates Bilbo Baggins’ Hobbit House Out Of 2,600 Balloons!

Lord Of The Rings’ fans have always been a bit eccentric but Utah based balloon artist Jeremy Telford has raised the bar by more than a few notches by constructing Bilbo Baggins’ hobbit house entirely out of balloons. The Tolkien super fan spent over 40 hours with swollen fingers creating the life size structure right in the middle of his living room using only a hand held balloon pump, his imagination, and a spiffy green vest to hold the balloons in. The structure comes complete with a fireplace filled with wood and flames, ornate chandelier, ceiling beams and closet doors that open and close! Watch a time lapse video after the jump of Telford in action as he creates the ultimate nerd shrine to Lord Of The Rings. (via)

Prayer Nuts Carved To Incredible Detail Will Have You In Disbelief

16th Century Prayer Nuts

16th Century Prayer Nuts

If you think carving a pumpkin is challenging, wait until you see the “prayer nuts” made by Dutch artists in the 16th century. These small, neurotically detailed treasures were carved from a single nut to resemble religious scenes. Each nut holds a spectacularly complex scene that contains a numerous amount of characters to construct religiously important events such as the crucifixion. All of this amazingly crafted imagery is inside a nut that is only a few inches in diameter! Not only are the interiors of the nuts carved into a fine detail, but the outsides are elaborately carved as well. The exterior shell of each nut features a decorative design carved into it, which is revealed once the prayer nut is closed. This way, whether the nut is open or closed, it shows off its stunning design.

Artisans created these delicate masterpieces during the Middle Ages so that individuals could use them privately when they pray. They were small enough to be carried in a person’s pocket and beautiful enough to hang on a rosary. Because the prayer nuts such took incredible skill, not to mention an unbelievably steady hand, only the wealthy and powerful could afford them. Because of this, they also became a social status of wealth. The same thing can be said about many products in contemporary society. Possessing something expensive that creates a convenience to you and can also fit in your pocket – this is not unlike the modern day smart phone. Valuable and beautifully crafted items are still in high demand today. However, these 16th century prayer nuts are much more rare than the latest iphone. They can be found in museum collections all over the world including the British Museum in London and the Kunsthistorisches Museum in Vienna.(via Juxtapoz)
