COLOURlovers recently posted a great article on the colours of video games.  If you don’t know COLOURlovers, it is a wonderful site dedicated to colour palettes.  In their blog they have themed post which will explore the colour palette prevalent in different walks of life.  Now anybody who knows me knows I am a total sucker for classic video games (actually, just vieo game in general).  I’m tempted to put together some palettes drawn from some modern classics.

Afrika

June 11, 2008

Word is surfacing that Afrika, the working title for a PS3 title seen floating about the game expos 2 or so years ago is scheduled for an imminent (or at least approaching) release. Now I have no real idea what the basis of this game is (the general idea seems to be based around Wildlife Photography) but it looks intriguing to me. It seems similar to the Wii’s ‘Endless Ocean’ but with the graphical power of a PS3, a much longer development period and cooler animals! This trailer is 2 years old now but still looks visually astonishing and could be one of the most interesting releases in the near future

Some Great New TV Spots

June 11, 2008

In the last few days I have watched a couple of the best TV spots floating around that I have seen for a while. They both have that whimsical, dreamy feel and are potentially overambitious, but are pulled off with style, remarkable art direction and all without the need for more than a couple of words to knock the message home.

Monster – Stork

Tiji – The Balloon

Enjoy!

Thanks to my good friends Ross and Julia at Star Crossed Tattoo, I will be heading along for the opening of Skin:Inks.  The exhibition will be running at Racks in Lan Kwai Fong  for a month or so and will be featuring 28 life size tattoo canvas photo portraits.  If you get a tattooed limb out on display you will be rewarded with a free shooter and a photo on the ‘wall of ink’!  The whole shebang will be wrapped up with a closing party at CLIQ on July 10th.  Head along and check out the work by HK’s finest tattoo artists!

Me and my Blackspots

Yay! Adbusters are using one of my photographs on the Blackspot sneakers website to sell their wonderful shoes.  Also look out for it in this month’s issue of Adbusters.

Here’s the Original

Ever finished up a kick ass design on your Mac, sent it to your PC running client and been told it looked “too dark” on their monitor?  Gamma Toggle is a nifty little program that allows you to toggle between various gamma settings to see how your designs look on other operating systems.  Though it is no replacement for actually loading your design on a bunch of different computers, it is really handy for getting a real-time idea of how it looks on a standard setting MAC or PC screen from your MAC or PC.

It’s tiny, it’s handy, it’s free so there is no reason why your shouldn’t go get it!

Picked this tip up from the excellent Boagworld podcast.
