Passion for the Details

Hell yeah I like seeing how stuff gets made … who doesn’t? I’ve always been a huge fan of seeing the process it takes to create, well, anything really. Which is probably the reason that I can sit and stare at How It’s Made for hours on end. The only difference between that show and these videos here are the production and direction that goes into them.

I recently came across the Passion for the Details video by Bespoken Clothiers while scrolling through the pages of Esquire. Which after seeing reminded me of this amazing commercial that pals Craig Metzger and Kirk Dianda created awhile back. I know both of those guys have extreme attention to details and both are amazing to work along side of.

Both are executed exceptionally well and romanticized the detailed process that goes into making a product.

Polaroid SX70 by Charles and Ray Eames

A great short film by the Eames’ for one of my, as well as most, all time favorites the Polaroid SX70.

LAIKA – A Dynamic Script


Here and there you’ll see something in it’s test stage, preliminary stage, or just before mainstream gets a hold of a concept and it blows your mind. Think of the yellow line on the football field on televised games.

Well, that’s what LAIKA is, a mind blower. Now, the common application of this might be far off, if at all but, it’s still damn cool. Investigating the potential of dynamic fonts, this is the bachelor thesis of Michael Flückiger and Nicholas Kunz Hochschule.

“We devised a system in which a typeface would not be defined static font styles anymore but would be able to change it‘s shape and appearance at any moment reacting to a broad spectrum of inputs.”

Anthony Pappalardo : Virgin White


Virgin White, the art/furniture show of Anthony Pappalardo’s amazing stools and tables is at Future Project in Brooklyn. I’ve been  a huge fan of these handcrafted four-legged resting structures since the first time I saw one. They’re meticulously made from small blocks and would love to have one of these in my apartment.

It’s nice to see a pro skateboarder peruse their other ambitions and hobbies and make something amazing and desirable. I’ve also been a long time fan of his.

If you haven’t already seen it, make sure to watch his Epicly Later’d mini series.

More of his video parts.
