  • The Spirit of China

    Arts & Culture, Audio/Visual Design

    Hi all,

    I was thinking about a little design project to get going. Something that has always intrigued me about Chinese culture is its focus on the essence of a matter. Their painting often have simple lines with a tremendous amount of space. These works of art lead you to feel the art rather than see it alone.

    What I'd like to achieve is to use graphic design to bring out some of that mystical feeling of old China. It doesn't necessarily need to be like traditional Chinese painting, but maybe that style of "leaving it up to the imagination" could produce some interesting results.

    What do you think?

  • Winning_50x70_177_

    Creative Director of renowned East London based design agency Ochee, Jason Kelly has won one of only 30 places out of almost 3000 entrants in the Human Rights Violation category of the esteemed social communication project organised by 50 x 70 – one of only 2 UK based design agencies. The competition was endorsed by Amnesty International, Greenpeace, UNICEF and The WWF. The core brief of the competition was whether the declaration itself is actually “worth the paper” that it is written on. 60 years after the UN unveiled the Universal declaration of Human Rights almost half of the world’s population experiences severe violations of this declaration on a daily basis. A concept reflected effectively in “The Shredder” – Ochee’s winning entry - – a powerful image resonating the virtual destruction of the declaration’s socially responsive sentiment.

    Founded in 2001 by Jason Kelly, Ochee has become of one East London’s leading design companies. Its philosophy is based around the concept of being socially creative – a concept often overlooked in a fiercely competitive industry. Coming from a commercially driven background; Jason Kelly has worked for some of the most prominent media powerhouses such as GQ, The Saturday Telegraph and Condé Nast Traveller. With this experience under his belt Jason has built up one of London’s most exciting young design agencies. Offering a range of services including branding, adve...

Back home, François-Xavier and Arnaud published the book Des Rêves Plein le Monde. A year later in February 2008, they launched the Dreamshake website.

    Being a true dream believer and practitioner myself I am very enthusiastic about Dreamshake, which makes John Lennon words a bit more real : "You might say I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one..."
