Fernando Acquarone has entered the building

And we have a new entry. The film maker Fernando Acquarone joined us this week.

fernando
Fernando (on the right) trying to navigate that space shuttle safely through space.

What were you doing before coming to Fabrica?
In Rio at Carnival. Before I was studying at the New Film Academy in NY. And before that I was in Rio again, working as a Film Editor.

You grew up in Brazil?
Not exactly, I grew up in Egypt, Bolivia, Brazil, Argentina and Canada. And now I'm grown up.

How come?
Because my dad's a Diplomat we always had to follow a nomadic lifestyle.

What do you think about living in Italy?
Things are much slower here than I'm used to.

What do you expect from your time in Fabrica?
Uuh, I don't know really... To develop skills in post production regarding film and also in Graphic Design.

Anything else to say?
Vote for me.

the 90's bandwagon

It only makes sense that Magic Eye is sweeping the nations for a second time. The 80's fad has fizzled out, and now we remember the 90's in our technologically advanced 2000's sort of way.

Behold, the Magic Eye animation:

Of course this is just a screen shot of the magic eye animation. Click on the picture to lead your forth. Put your nose to the screen and slowly pull back. Repeat that multiple times.

Sebastian Horsley

logo.jpg
savilledoor.jpg

Some of you have probably already heard of Sebastian Horsley but if you haven't I strongly recommend you learn a little about him today. I just did. He is a fascinating artist who uses "method" painting which means he basically lives and breathes his subjects before painting. He is the first westerner to travel to the Philippines to be crucified and he documented it all in the name of art, its incredible check it out here.

But he also has another dark side, he is addicted to sleeping with prostitutes and claims to have been with over 1000. If you saw this months Creative Review you will understand the image above, if not you can read more about it here on CR blog. But, for me the most fascinating article was by the Observer, it starts like this .....

I remember the first time I had sex - I still have the receipt. The girl was alive, as far as I could tell, she was warm and she was better than nothing. She cost me £20.

I was 16 then and I'm 41 now. I have spent 25 years throwing my money and heart at tarts. I have slept with every nationality in every position in every country. From high-class call girls at £1,000 a pop to the meat-rack girls of Soho at £15, I have probably slept with more than 1,000 prostitutes, at a cost of £100,000.

Need I say much more? Its fascinating he's such an interesting character and I'm off to discover more about him now.

Natures Porn

Yesterday Matt told me the p-spot was getting less and less sexual which I had to completely agree with. I guess it has been because I have been spending my days surfing endless design blogs and discovering so much interesting design instead of sexual things! So I'm making up for the lack of sexual content by posting some natural porn i received in an email this morning! Racey enough for you Prinns?

NYC Condoms

logo.jpg
NYC .jpg

On February 14th 2007 New York City launched the free NYC branded condoms. It is the first nation with an official brand of condoms and they are available all over the city for individuals and organizations. With the help of a new internet ordering system they have increased the distribution of free condoms from 2.5 million per year to 18 million per year. That is a staggering amount to distribute so lets hope that with that volume of free condoms circulating the STI rates and unwanted pregnancies will dramatically be reduced. I'm so impressed by this fantastic scheme, it sets an example for other major cities worldwide to follow in the footsteps set by New Yorks Department of Health. Check it out here and if you're in the city go get yourself some from one of the distribution points here.

Solitude in Photoshop

Life can get pretty god damned stressful. I think all the clutter and the noise surround us in the every day rat race has more than just something to do with that. Wouldn't it be nice to spend some time inside of Gregor Graf's photos?

Graf takes the city of Linz and completely purges it of signs, emphasizing the architectonic and structural features of the city, making the streets seem unreal, culturally interchangeable and alien.

Little People

logo.jpg
Coke+1+-+blog.jpg

Coke+2+-+blog.jpg

I'm a fan of most tiny cute things and this 'little people' blog by street artist Slinkachu is a favorite. He manipulates tiny shop bought figurines and places them in everyday city situations and photographs them. The idea behind this project was to capture the feelings of isolation and loneliness often associated with living in a city. The little people are then left to fend for themselves with only the most observant passers noticing them. Its such a simple idea for street art but can you imagine going to a toilet and finding this little guy snorting his huge wrap of coke? Wonderful art and I plan to return to London and keep my eyes peeled for these little people. A great blog with some really interesting images and scenarios on so go see it for yourself here.

Wooster Collective is a site dedicated to showcasing street art from all around the world. The above work is by artist Mike Newton who says "i noticed how the police would move the homeless from street to street, doorway to doorway around the town. this gave me the inspiration for my latest piece "removing me wont solve the problem" a kind of twist on the removal of graffiti." There is some great pieces on this site, check it out here.

My dad as some of you know spends most of his time surfing the internet, (mostly editing wikipedia hence my nick name for him wikipeter) but today he found these amazingly designed toilets. Check out the huge variety of innovative and crazy places to have a pee here they are incredible but this one topped it for me! It brings a whole new meaning to creaming in the toilets! Genius and perfect p-spot design!
Cheers pops.

Brian Donnelly

I've just stumbled across this very interesting Canadian artist Brian Donnelly who I throughly recommend you check out. His paintings have a beautiful and fresh style and an amazing photo realism to them. On his site he even has a contest you can enter here. Well as he says its not so much of a contest as a dare to get a tattoo of one of his logo designs then if you can prove you've done it he'll send you an original painting! Ummm interesting contest to say the least! His photo pages also had me giggling behind my screen, this site definitely got my day off to a good start. Check out the wonderful works and character of Brian here.

Cheater Checker

logo.jpg
cheaters_top.jpg

My God i've just discovered the Cheater Checker and yes it does exactly as the name suggests! This program has been devised to install onto your computer and it spys and records all movements of the user so you can check out exactly what someone has been doing on it! It is legal to install onto your own computer but it is suspected that it is being installed onto others computers which is of course not legal but vital if you want to catch someone in the act of virtual cheating or worse!

It's crazy and personally I hate the product but as I well know you often have no idea if someone is cheating on you. But I leave you with this final and slightly cheesy thought as Elvis once said ... we can't go on together with suspicious minds! Listen to the King and don't dip down to the Cheater Checker but if you're interested check it out here.

Ooops that's three posts today, back to my real work now!

Singles

logo.jpg
singles.jpg

Reed passed me this article he found in National Geographic this month about singles in America. It may be of interest to some of you considering a relocation to the States after here. . . . so girls be smart and head west and boys get your asses to the east!

Single and looking? Lonely singles' chances of finding mates are influenced by which side of the Mississippi River they live on, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. Western urban areas tend to boast an excess of single males, while the eastern cities feature a predominance of females. Demographers say a few key factors shape this trend; notably, 58 percent of college students are women, giving most of East's numerous college towns a female majority. After graduating, legions of these women join the white-collar workforce, which is 51 percent female and centered in big cities such as New York, Chicago and Washington, D.C. Areas with more single men often have large numbers of illegal immigrants, some 58 percent of whom are male and generally work either in districts that rely on agriculture or in cities with booming construction sectors, such as Las Vegas. - Peter Gwin

Bad apples

We love Apple. Apple knows more about clean design than anybody. So why do Macs, iPods, iBooks and the rest of their product range contain hazardous substances that other companies have agreed to abandon? A cutting edge company shouldn't be cutting lives short by exposing children in China and India to dangerous chemicals. www.greenpeace.org/apple/

Not Wanted Creativity

china_edit2.jpg
china_edit1.jpg

Colors magazine has just launched it's 70th issue, on the hot-topic of (no, not Britney Spears) China. It's a beautifully photographed issue featuring an astounding amount of work by just two young photographers, Chen Jiaojiao and Peng Yangjun.

However, for the public presentation this week in Beijing, it appeared that the Chinese audience wasn't so impressed by Fabrica's token 'Wanted Creativity' ad (drawn by yours truly). And so the page featuring a cute, cartooney likeness of Mao was subsequently ripped out of all copies for the presentation.

Maybe they just didn't like what that pink panda's right hand was up to.

International Women's Day

logo.jpg
08march2006.jpg

This morning I was greeted by my dear Cosimo holding a wonderful bunch of mimosa (tiny yellow flowers) which they use here in Italy to mark International Womens Day. A day to celebrate women, how wonderful. I then had another lovely bunch of mimosa on my desk at work from Matteo who was celebrating all the women in our department. What lovely men we have here at Fabrica, so keen to honour and celebrate us girls. So I decided to invite another honourable man Mr Etter to guest write the p-spot today and tell us all about what womens day really means. So a big thanks to Chris and to all you lovely ladies out there have a wonderful womens day... over to you Chris:

Thanks Miss P... Being Swiss, I like to break down problems into neutral facts. And here they are:

Violence against women is the most common but least punished crime in the world.

It is estimated that between 113 million and 200 million women are demographically "missing." They have been the victims of infanticide (boys are preferred to girls) or have not received the same amount of food and medical attention as their brothers and fathers.

The number of women forced or sold into prostitution is estimated worldwide at anywhere between 700,000 and 4,000,000 per year. Profits from sex slavery are estimated at seven to twelve billion US dollars per year.

Italia: Great art, crappy logo

Following the public release of Italy's new national logo, design professionsals in the country are freaking out at it's apparent horrendousness (four fonts in one logo, mamma mia!).
And so a petition has been formed to the ministery of i-don't-know-what saying it sucks. (sorry it's in Italian).
And there is also great discussion about it here.

Aquarium Drunkard + NEVVER

Two great blogs that offer a great selection of music.

The first: an Aquarium Drunkard,

dishes out classic rock and newish mostly folky, indie rock, hitting a summery softer note, finding a great selection of rare and live tracks from today's most beloved musicians. Also available are, as of late, 25 ultra lovely podcasts, interviews and links to band sites.

I've just discovered this UK design studio youarebeautiful set up by Kerry Roper. Check it out. Her work is really beautiful and of course I picked out this wonderful and appropriate advertising for the chocolate company, Thorntons. Oh how true it is, hey?
