The Museum of Obsolete Objects

Posted in Digital, Is it Nice..?, Videos by Ade Chong on September 6, 2011

Just lovely. The Museum of Obsolete Objects is a place for fallen appliances, tools and gadgets from a simpler time. A lovely place to go to relive your childhood. I’m also incredibly impressed by how they built this entire site in Youtube. I remember working with Youtube a year ago and it was such a pain. Youtube must be pushing for brand channels these days if it’s progressed this far this quickly.

The site is built in Flash by German digital agency, Jung von Matt/Next.

City Dog in Web Designer Magazine

Posted in Digital, Is it Nice..?, Work by Ade Chong on April 19, 2011

So it seems City Dog‘s been gaining some serious mileage on the net and around the world. We’ve been featured on Site Inspire a couplea months ago and now we’ve bagged a double-page spread in Web Designer Magazine! And even more exciting, we’re going to be published in one of Smashing Magazine’s books.

And like Seb said, it does feel like winning the Academy Awards.

Again, couldn’t have done it without our kick-ass coder, Seb & puppet-master, Michael.

Matta – Release The Freq

Posted in Animations/Motion graphics, Digital, Infographics, Is it Nice..?, Videos by Ade Chong on April 13, 2011

Or watch the video on Vimeo.

Siiiiick motion graphics for British duo Matta‘s Release The Freq from the album Prototype. Imagine the motion infographic style of Stranger Than Fiction but mashed with a bbc documentary on deer, some electronic-dubstep and speed. The result is surprisingly brilliant.

Woodkid – Iron

Posted in Animations/Motion graphics, Digital, Is it Nice..?, Music, Videos by Ade Chong on April 6, 2011

Pretty epic video for Woodkid’s Iron. Video directed by Yoann Lemoine, cinematography by Mathieu Plainfosse. Really loving the styling, lighting and 3D work. I’d imagine this to be the Lord of The Rings of music videos. Can’t say I feel the same about the track though :\

Watch the full video here.

Bias-ness totally applies here. I’m ashamed to say that friends/coworkers/fuck-buddies get first dibs here, unless you can prove that you are as big a social media + interwebz addict as me and that you deserve this invite.

Press Pause Play

Posted in Digital, Is it Nice..? by Ade Chong on February 12, 2011

“It used to be, you didn’t become an artist just to become rich, you became an artist because you had an idea or emotion to share, and that’s where we’re heading again.” – Seth Godin

Press Pause Play is looking really promising. Can’t wait for the DVD to come out.
