It's Friday Props with some Throwback Thursday flair! It's Friday Props, the pseudo-retro edition. I'll kick things off this week with MyDecadeTV, a site that pays homage to the channel surfing experiences of the 70's, 80's, and 90's. The site sources videos from youtube, and has a pretty wide variety of content ranging from cartoons to soap operas. More likely than not you'll stumble into something of interest while making your way through the thousands of videos on the site. My next props throws it back just a little bit further. Old Radio World is an online archive of radio broadcasts Read More >>

What do dogs, Will.i.am, and 3D Printing have in common? A lot actually, you'd be surprised. That being said, this week we're props-ing some pretty stellar work being done by 3D systems, a US based company making leaps and bounds in the world of 3D printing. First up is the heartwarming story of Derby the dog. Born with deformed front legs, his owners were involved in a project to 3D print prosthetics in conjunction with 3D systems.This is the kind of creative problem solving that 3D printing is bringing to the forethought of the design process.

I’ve been on a bit of a motion graphics kick this week, so I’m going to be giving props to some crazy cool animations this edition of Friday Props. I’ll jump right in by giving props to Spacetime Fabric Softener, an animated short by Professor Soap, who labels himself as A "purveyor of audiovisual candy". You can check out his website here, but I’d start by watching the short below, which features a highly playful visual treatment to deliver a light and playful story. https://vimeo.com/66903521 My second props goes to a stop motion animation by graffiti artists Blu and David Ellis.

Friday Props - Keep Calm and Carry On

With the holiday season already upon us many are feeling overwhelmed. We’ve found some props this week to remind you to keep calm, and carry on. First up is the incredibly stressful, incredibly fun looking indie game “Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes”. The concept is simple, one player plays in virtual reality, where they are presented with a bomb and no knowledge of how to disarm it. In the real world, other players around the diffuser pour over manuals and cooperatively work to talk the virtual reality player through the disarming process. The mechanics of the game are simple, but ingenious. Read More >>


Friday Props #90 - Musical Connections

It’s Friday once more, and despite the festivities, we managed to steal some time to find a couple of props-worthy gems. We’ll open with this unique music video for Wilkinson's “Afterglow”. Director Remy Cayuela has picked up multiple awards for the video, including first prize in the Young Directors Award at the Cannes Festival this year and a nomination for ‘Best dance video’ award at the UK Music Video Awards. The video breaks down a romantic relationship into statistics to create an interesting profile of two people through numbers. Watch it below, but be warned it does contain some NSFW Read More >>


Friday Props #85 - Scale

Friday Props 85- Scale Today’s Friday! But what does Friday mean, aside from Friday Props? Friday is a day in a week, in a month, in a year, in a decade, etc. But Friday only has meaning if it has context. Todays Props go out to those who have wondered about, and visualized various scales. From time, to size, to bytes, data has been given context through visual interpretation and, spoiler alert, it’s cool stuff.   Here Is Today is an interactive, visual representation of time created by freelance designer/ illustrator Luke Twyman.  The visualization features a diagram of today Read More >>
