Anyone in or around Sydney has to get down to the Quay after dusk for a truly spectacular, eye-popping experience. The city foreshore has come alive with intense colour, movement and light as the Vivid Sydney 2012 festival kicks off. So much creative energy and talent is on show. One of our favourites is the sky high canvas of the MCA with projected moving imagery reminiscent of Fritz Lang’s Metropolis but in full-blown, vivid colour. Unbelievable and unmissable! Get down there and take the kids too. They’ll love it!
Vivid Sydney 25 May – 11 June 2012…
Design Clarity has been busy at Clarkenwell Design Week over the last couple of days. We have attended exhibitions, talks, films and even workshops. Our highlights included the scrabble wall at the Turnbull Grey letterpress workshop at the Milliken showroom. We also enjoyed getting inspired by one of design’s most famous couples – Charles and Ray Eames whose lives were on show at the Vitra screening of ‘Eames: The Architect and the Painter’, by Jason Cohn and Bill Jersey. We also loved what the Giles Miller Studio created as the entrance of the Farmiloe building in the form of a timber archway made up of 20,000 angled wooden pixels. We have complied a list of our favorites and put together Design Clarity’s CDW Best in Show.

Taking fashion marketing to a whole new level the Color Forecast project by retailer Pimkie has been developed by Pedro Cruz and runs feeds from high definition cameras in Milan, Paris and Antwerp to track the colour of fashions worn across the cities.
The colour clustering software analyses the passing colours and shows in real time which are worn most often, then the colours are compiled into an infographic to see how trends evolve.
It is yet to be seen how other fashion houses take to the accuracy and its capacity to forecast the trends and determine how colour tastes change over the season. Either way strong graphics and aesthetic tone results in an interesting project.
