Nicholas Alan Cope :: Photography
While online browsing some random curator’s website, I came across Nicholas Alan Cope’s work–a Maryland photographer now based in Los Angeles. He’s done work for many big name studios such as CBS and HBO as well as work for Japanese Vogue, TOMS Shoes, and Orange 22. His namesake photography is nothing short of experimental though. There are so many different dimensions in his work that leaves one wondering how it’s done. Ive taken a fancy to it myself. Check out more of his work here __click.
Even if you’re like me and have never had the pleasure of enjoying Alfred Hitchcock’s “Rear Window”, I think you’ll still be able to enjoy this short. In not so many words, the film is about a fellow named LB “Jeff” Jeffries who’s confined to his New York apartment after being injured in an accident and ends up spending his recovery gazing out of his rear window. He suspects a man across the way to have murdered his wife and spends the film getting his girlfriend and nurse to believe him.
This short takes the movie and condenses it into a single time-lapsed shot. Beautifully created in Photoshop, After Effects, and Coffee software, Jeff Desom does a fantastic job at reworking the film. Again, I’ve never read the piece or seen the film but this makes me want to so much more.
Also, the short was short-listed for an award for/at Vimeo Festival+Awards, feel free to vote for it here __click.
CONTRARY TO POPULAR BELIEF *looking at one person’s name in my contacts* I DONT SIT AT HOME AND READ COLLEGE TEXT BOOKS!!! (OK, Im done, I had to get my issue off). In the past couple months, I’ve been inundated with this book called No Logo by Naomi Cline. It goes over everything from big box brands/corporate branding, backlash, capitalism, to sweatshops. There were many points in the book where I simply wanted to riot in anger and other parts where I simply wanted to fall asleep–and did, but I made it through the 450+ page book (it only had like 3 pictures). I learned a lot from it, through viewing BOTH sides of the branding perspective.
Now Im reading David Airey’s Logo Design Love. Not only is it going over the process of how to hone your creative thoughts to produce astonishing logos/ images, but it also goes over how to work with clients–big and small. I love it.
Here’s an ad series by Lego featuring none other than their signature plastic blocks portraying characters of one’s childhood past in a minimalist contemporary style. Although they’re pretty easy to guess, there’s one–maybe two that I cant seem to figure out what they are. If you can guess these 6, drop me a line in the contact center and I’ll hook you up with some free awesome-ness. Enjoy.

From my understanding Frieke Janssens is a Belgium based photographer that was inspired by the video of that wee Indonisian child that smokes [x] pack of cigarettes a day, and thus decided to complete a personal series of his own called “Smoking Kids“. Of course dont take offense to the images, for they’re just an adaptation or caricature of the stereotypical adult indulging in the act of enjoying a smoke. The styling of his subjects are outright immaculate and the poses are often dead on. If you’d like to see more, __click.

Meet Mama’s Sauce, a boutique letterpress and silk-screen print shoppe based in Orlando, Florida. They have a fairly decent online following of clientele where they’re normally used for screen-printed posters that are featured on MondoTees and other popular sites alike. This video is not particularly informative, but it’s fun to see hints of their steady day to day production in their craft. Check out their sight here __click. The video was shot by photographer KWU (Kellie Warren-Underwood), check her portfolio out here __click.
