What has started in January along the Wacom-Companion testimonial is now in pre-order status…
Meanwhile we have moved to London and the PORECPLANEv.01 is currently in its last steps to be produced in a run of only 50pcs. I´m currently thinking about making a few in black. Packaging Layout and graphics have to be made and then send off to Limoges for production. It´s a great experience to have a product made in Europe. The quality is very nice. I´ll try to blog about the next step – as soon as possible.
Februar 2014 – I came across the new WACOM Companion/Cintiq. After testing it for a while and reviewing several product clips – I had the feeling that It would be nice to show my feeling of the product within a video. With the aim to show that the “Companion is not a toy” – while being a portable workstation with no compromise.
I came up with a concept I believed would be interesting and contacted WACOM EUROPE. They where quite exited and open to my concept and intention to create a Testimonial. From there I contacted my colleagues and friends who’s work I admire since years, Chris from SNDY.tv and DanielGrundPhotography - asking them if they would be up to shoot what I had in my mind – aka FRGMNTZ.From here on we started the quite tough timeline of 12-days, me creating artwork digital to analog from 2D to 3D and directing the guys how I´d like to everything captured while changing locations….
and finally setting up the 2-day Pop-Up gallery.
To see the result you might jump here to YOUTUBE or VIMEO.
The creative outcome such as artworks displayed, as well as a few T-Shirts, are currently available in the STORE.
Prototypes as the 3-D printed PORCEPLANEv.01, PORCEPLANEv.02 and the hand-crafted SPRAYCANDLE will follow by end of 2014.
I enjoy such short project collaborations that take place during my holidays a lot – and I guess there are more to come.
The newest FORM N°254 is focused on STYLEWRITING! They have featured one page of my works as FLATAU/THESIGNER with the focus on my transportation design stuff in the foreground and my “URBAN-AESTHETICS” as I prefer to call them as the resource in the background.
