Using a portrait of Russian Mathematician Grigori Perelman by artist Jules Julian, designers Alan Temiraev and Volodenka Zotov created a beautifully designed pencil set.
The architects combined Gothic and modern styles in the design of the building. Black brick on the frontage of the building (symbolizing coal) was selected to give an idea of solidity and to give the building a solid mass. Other parts of the facade were covered in gold bricks (symbolizing fire), and the entry was decorated with marble and black mirrors.

Voyage by Aether & Hemera
Media architect Claudio Benghi and light artist Gloria Ronchi joined together in 2006 to formAether & Hemera, an interdisciplinary collaboration that seeks “to research the aesthetic challenges of light and its power to trigger emotions and response, creating a sense of identity or setting a mood.” Their latest installation in London’s Canary Wharf is this beautiful fleet of 300 illuminated boats called Voyage. Each floating light is reminiscent of a paper-folded origami boat that is illuminated from within, and I’m told there is a wireless network in the vicinity that allows you to join with your mobile device and somehow alter the color of the entire installation.
Stunning art!! Check out the rest of them at http://dezinefolio.com/stunning-examples-of-recycled-art/

It’s a simple truth, but brands like people, learn, evolve and grow. We like to build brands with the capacity for growth. This means that they’re built to last. Relevant now, but optimistically pointed towards the future. We create a framework for brands to grow into. So much more than just a logo and some colors, we establish a point of view, an attitude, and a whole series visual elements that express this. So as the world changes and evolves, the brand will naturally follow, continually reinventing itself, reframing it’s message and it’s offering to be relevant to it’s audience.
We believe that a successful branding process is like good therapy. It’s aim is to reveal the truth, by gathering a clear understanding of the past, interpreting aims and motivations, and building a platform of honesty and unique identity that maximizes the potential for growth (and happiness!)
