29 Ways to stay Creative.

images

The creative mind is constantly searching for new inspiration. As designers we are constantly trying to fuel ourselves with inspiring images and sometimes we get stretched to a point that we get stuck in a creativity rut. This short video by TO-FU is just a fun reminder of some simple tips to stay creative for days you keep hitting you head against a brick wall.

The Exbury Egg

Stephen Turner Egg

exbury-egg-by-SPUD-group-PAD-studio-stephen-turner-9 51bb2999b3fc4b0c37000006_exbury-egg-pad-studio-spud-group-stephen-turner_launch_interior_low_res1457014-528x352

Meet the Exbury Egg designed by artist Stephen Turner to be his live in studio.
The design is an exploration of the built and its ability to interact with a changing climate. The structure treads lightly on the worlds resources and the worn timber design is tethered to the shore subject to the rise and fall of the tide. The timber reflects its conditions and the solar panels provide all necessary power. The structure is energy efficient and self sustaining, the epitome of empathetic design and simply, we love it.
‘Climate change is already creating new shorelines and habitats. Established salt marsh is being eroded by a combination of rising sea levels and falling landmass and the entire littoral environment is in a state of flux. The implications for wildlife and for the flora as well as for people are challenging. Raising awareness of the past and the unfolding present of a very special location will be the task, whist living in an ethical relationship with nature and treading as lightly as possible upon the land.’
Quote from Stephen Turner

What’s the cheapest and most effective way to make a white wall interesting?
Combine art and interior design.
These are a few pics from the amazing Warner Graphic Installation by Gemma Hills. It’s the graphics, typography and interior design hybrid that people are call environmental branding. It’s an effective cost, branding and aesthetic approach, of which we are sure to see more to come!

Decafe Kojis Suspension Light

textura_decafe11 (1)

These super cool lights were designed by Spanish Designer Raul Lauri. This beautiful design won him first prize at the Salone Satellite Award 2012 in Milan. The project is not only beautiful in its completion but also in its process. The design began as an investigation into how we could make the most of every day waste. With coffee being one of the most traded commodity in the world and taking such an important part in people’s life and habits, he decided to work around the idea of up-cycling the used coffee grinds. The final result retains the beautiful texture and scent of coffee.

Toby Melville-Brown

dezeen_Tower-Series-by-Toby-Melville-Brown_4 dezeen_Tower-Series-by-Toby-Melville-Brown_2 dezeen_Tower-Series-by-Toby-Melville-Brown_3

British illustrator Toby Melville-Brown imagines impossible architectural structures in his latest drawing series. The Tower Series depicts three fantasy skyscrapers, each intended to explore a different architectural scenario.
“Through drawing, I try to convey my obsession with civilisation,” explains Toby Melville-Brown. “I’m not commenting on environmental issues, nor condemning our excessive nature; I’m merely fascinated with the synthetic landscape we have constructed around ourselves.”

Facebook Sydney

IMG_6225

Shortlist (1) IMG_6135 IMG_6230

Here at Siren we work on a variety of different office environments and with a huge range of clients. We recently finished the Facebook Sydney Offices the project lead by our very own Shannon Dogon. The amazing design features an amazing range of furniture and finishes and some graphic art.
“Facebook is about people — and our workplaces should support our employees in ways they didn’t even know possible, working to stimulate collaboration, nurture cultural cohesion, and pave the way for ingenuity and invention.” – Faceboo. Working to a brief that fostered creativity, Siren design was able to provide Facebook with an ‘industrial’ & ‘un-polished’ commercial interior that was deliberately void of any stereotypical spaces of the corporate world. Sit to stand workstations, open plan metal mesh kitchen joinery, life size ‘Write Something’ wall, glavanised steel staircase with steel grating balustrade, are some of the unique features that make up the essential bones of this iconic office. Working alongside renowned graffiti artists, acoustic consultants & Australian furniture suppliers, Siren handed over a tailor made office that is susceptive to the rogue, emergent, and generative culture of Facebook.

Food Art

food-art-by-hong-yi-aka-red-14 1 food-art-by-hong-yi-aka-red-4

These amazing artworks by Hong Yi are the result of a self set challenge. For 1 month Hong Yi challenged herself to create a new piece of food art every day.
There were only two rules:
1. Only food can be used
2. The creations must be placed on a white plate, which serves as the backdrop
In a recent interview with DesignBoom, Hong explains:
“My ‘creativity with food‘ series has helped me push the limits of my creativity, and has taught me to work within the confines of a very small area – my previous works range from 1 x 2 to 3 x 4 meters. I’ve learned to slice, dice, stir, boil…who would have thought I’d need that to do art!”

MIC Styling

Possibly the quirkiest hair salon ever- MIC Styling in Slovenia by Kitsch Nitsch. It epitomises the 80’s in every way. Graphics, furniture design and colours.
Watch this space for future designs by Kitsch Nitsch – they are definitely pushing the boundary in quirky kind’a way!!

Latte Art

We love coffee!!! There are very few people in the design world who do not start their day with a coffee. Latte art is not a new form of art but Japanese artist Kazuki Yamamoto takes it to a whole new level. His intricate and detailed designs are both 2D and 3D. Using a simple toothpick, Kazuki creates wonderful latte art portraits for customers of Cafe10g.
It proves yet again that you can find beautiful art and design in the every day.

Shadow Art

Designed by Dutch artist Diet Wiegman, these sculptures use light to create beautiful shadow art. His incredible works are unusual at best until the light hits them from a certain angle creating the artwork.

The world of paper

2

1 3 4

Created by designer and artist Simon Schubert this amazing paper series highlights one of the many amazing properties of paper. In this series Schubert meticulously folds sheets of paper, creating a very shallow relief. When the light hits at the right angle the paper breathes a life of its own. The image is created only using creases and folds. His work reminds us that the properties of different materials are often underestimated and taken for granted. We still need to challenge and push boundaries to explore the potential of materials.

Old is New

1

We LOVE this sculpture by Japanese artist Haroshi. The amazing colour and form have been created using old skateboard decks. In order to make his forms the skateboards are stacked together and then cut, shaved and polished into shape. The pixelated forms are a mesmerising and the colours created by the different boards is seriously cool.
Although not visible from the outside all of Haroshi’s sculptures have a metal object buried on the inside. This is symbolic of the ‘soul’ of the sculpture and comes from fellow Japanese sculpture Unkei. Active in the 12th Century Unkei would set a crystal ball inside his Buddha sculptures in the position of the Buddha’s heart, becoming the soul of the statue.
To see more of his amazing designs see his website:
