Ever heard of a company named Kid Robot? Are you into collectable Art toys? To be honest, we here at Hess Design Solutions have seen their toys here and there; I guess we never really gave them much thought. And we should have. Turns out these folks have a generous cult following and they claim to be the world’s premier creator of limited edition art toys and apparel. Could toys really be any more creative than theirs? We think not.

The folks behind HunterGatherer (founded by Todd St. John) are always moving the goal posts with a very unique “hands-on” approach to design, illustration, and animation. HunterGatherer have been around since 2000 and I think the first time I became aware of HunterGatherer was their cover art they did for Money Mark’s “Brand New By Tomorrow” LP. The studio’s work has been frequently published and exhibited. HunterGatherer has won awards from multiple design organizations, and Todd St. John was included along with collaborator Gary Benzel in the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Triennial: Design Now.
Vintage yet classic design awaits you with this site we stumbled upon by Nick Dart. Nick is a talented designer in his own right who seems to be inspired by the design elements found in classic arcade era art. This site showcases both lost and seeming found video game designs as well as illustrations from the 1970’s and 1980’s. We can merely hope that this site is regularly updated since we find this stuff absolutely amazing and needless to say inspiring.
Yes and well, yes. We here at Hess Design Solutions are considerably huge fans of collage work and our eyes are always on the prowl. Collages have such a distinct ability in which they can shine a humorous and somewhat absurd light on the most taboo aspects of the human race. Of course collages can just flat out be a lot of fun to utilize for printed work and adverts. At the very least one must admit that they are very eye catching, while what once seemingly looks like a normal photograph upon closer inspection affords us a view into a different word.
We have to admit this is a pretty darn cool time killer. This is Now project is a visual composition which uses real-time updates from the ever popular Instagram application based on users geo-tag locations. The tool streams photos instantly as soon as they are uploaded on Instagram and captures a city’s movement, in a fluid story.
