Happy Friday everyone! Here's some props to kick off your weekend!First up is this little tool to generate animated text. It's easy to use, and exports to a gif form in a multitude of colours. It's fun, and that's enough for me to props it. Give it a try here. XXXXXXXXXX Next up is this palette generator based entirely around the original set of pokemon. It displays the colors used in the illustrations side by side with the 8 bit art. Find your favorites over at http://pokepalettes.com/. Here's the obligatory pikachu as well as a couple palettes I personally enjoyed quite Read More >>
It's been a pretty hectic week here at edgeworks creative, so i'm keeping the theme going with a Whirlwind Edition of Friday Props. Here Goes! First up is this time collapsed video of kites on the beach. It's a fitting start to this eclectic collection of propsworthy coolness. It's neat, need I say more? Next up is this mock campaign to build a 300 mile wall around San Francisco. Why? To keep burning man participants from returning of course! The video featured below is fairly amusing itself, but the site itself (http://megagogo.co/) completes the experience https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PO_r6ndZRZY How Read More >>
Here's to another work week coming to a close. Let's celebrate with some friday props! It's a mixed bag edition, so here's a bunch of things I found interesting. This Parody. Entitled "The Timmy Brothers" this piece is a great parody piece about bespoke drinking water. Give it a watch, enjoy a laugh, and pass it along?
A short look at the Timmy Brothers, Brooklyn–based makers of bespoke drinking water.
Bill and Terry Timmy are introducing handcrafted water to the world with an almost pathological attention to craftsmanship and a thirst
It's another week of Friday Props, another week of cool findings big and small. Immensely large and incomprehensibly tiny, here's what I've found. First up is this music video created by artist collective Strange Freedom. It's composed from thousands of microscopic stills time lapsed into a variety of abstract forms. The atmospheric visuals melt into abstract landscapes in nearly perfect synch with the music. Give it a look below. . Second in this weeks props is a film by Trent Jaklitsch entitled Supersymmetry, that connects challenges with a greater sense of purpose, and a Read More >>
It's the world of tomorrow from yesterday! It's Friday Props, the Retrofuturist edition! I stumbled across some wonderfully quirky visions of the future this week and had to share them for Friday Props. I'll be kicking off with this collection of Japanese futurist illustrations predating the 1960's. The collection is filled with visions of futures utopian or otherwise all with some super retro flair. While sifting through some of these fantastic images I was brought back to hours spent pouring over Chris Foss' "21st Century Foss" as a kid. I'll give his work a props as well and share his Read More >>
Drones! Drones! Drones!You may have guessed that todays props are all about drones. Love them or hate them, they're pretty solidly here to stay, so here's a look at some of the cool things being done with them. First up I'll props Festo Bionics for their new take on what a drone should be. Go ahead and marvel over their newly revealed autonomous butterfly drones in action below. Next up is some pure eye candy in the form of Rotorworks drone footage showreel. Shot entirely with drones, this quick reel contains some amazing aerial footage. If you're considering purchasing a Read More >>
Our hundredth Friday Props post is just one week away, so I'll be returning to our themeless roots. But first, I'll put in my plug to come back next week for our 100th Post Retrospective, which promises to be full of fun findings. With that bit of business out of the way, here are your regularly scheduled Friday Props. First props this week go to Ernesto Neto's highly interactive, extremely immersive sculptures. Often regarded as "playscapes" these sculptures engage viewers and encourage their exploration and tactile exploration of the work.Picture below is work from his exhibit entitled "Madness is Part of Read More >>
This week’s Friday Props are all about people making cool ideas happen. From conception to reality these projects are incredibly nifty.I’ll dive in this week with this video sent to me by Edgeworks Creative’s own Adam Lacombe. The project is half hack, half revival, of the nintendo power glove by animator Dillon Markey (well known for his work on robot chicken). He’s essentially turned the glove into a remote with various functions to make his claymation type animation much more efficient. The project also has some cool secret features, but you’ll have to watch the video to find out what Read More >>
Props this week are short on words, but rich in visual and audible intrigue. We’ve scoured the internet for some of the most props-worthy, music heavy videos we could find. We’ll kick off with a beatbox breakfast sequence by Finnish artist Felix Zengar. Felix’s work heavily on looped audio tracks to deliver some sweet beats. You can find more of his work via his website, and if you find Zengar’s work compelling check out similar artist Beardyman. His Ted talk, “The Polyphonic Me”, is especially interesting and shows how modern musicians can overcome the restrictions of the human voice. Moving on from Read More >>
It’s clear that the internet is an invaluable tool in modern society, and it’s chock full of interesting, useful, items, all just a click away. Last weeks props came at you with a collection of useful tools from around the web. That being said, today's props go out to some of the most useless websites we could find. Those that dare to embrace the freedom of the internet to do nothing of particular use. We’ll open with a throwback to an internet sensation circa 2006, Loituma Girl. Also known as the leek spinner, this clip is a prime example of some of Read More >>
