FWA People choice website 2009

April 13, 2010

Labuat is a Spanish music band, formed in 2008. In 2009, Labuat released their debut album, with a single called “Soy tu aire”, which translates to “I’m your air”. There idea was to create a website for the single so that you could create your own music video. This got the accolade of People Choise website 2009 FWA http://www.thefwa.com/ (also a brilliant website and design tool).

Although it is in Spanish, roughly translated the opening paragraph means …

…’I’m your air’ is a song filled with many orchestras instruments and a voice of truth and lies. And we wanted to give you something you could move with the song. A brush because ‘I’m your air’ here is painted in the air. Move your cursor wherever you want, during the song. When finished you can view your recorded video and your own work and playback…

This is a beautifully crafted and designed website and really deserves 5 minutes of your time, click here http://soytuaire.labuat.com/ to create yours.

Barrow: Part_2

April 5, 2010

So there it was …

… a perfect evening, clear skies, sitting around an open fire in a wheelbarrow with marshmallows and listening to iTunes playing the perfect acoustic music (another good reason to get the alcohol flowing).

When all of a sudden Bennys creative veins sparked into life again. With the smoke fumes clearly going to his head he came up with the idea of creating a typeface simply from the glow of a flame and a simple photography trick. Who ever said drinking irresponsibly didn’t get you anywhere?
