Aris Papamarkakis is an autodidactic jewelry designer based in Greece. He designs his intricately beautiful pendants using specialized programs, and then sends off the files to Shapeways to have them printed. Papamarkasis says that his inspiration comes mainly from two different sources – nature and mathematical art. Stars, butterflies and flowers are some of the recurring motifs in his works.

While his current pendants have been printed out using sintered nylon plastic (a strong and flexible polyamide material), he promises that he will soon be expanding his line to other materials like silver and gold. For now, you can buy his pendants at his online store.

The-Gambler-Saul-Bass-Inspired-Movie-Poster-02

Creative agency New! were given the assignment to create posters for a Lithuanian movie called “The Gambler,” which premiered last week at the San Sebastian International Film Festival. The film, directed by Ignas Jonynas, tells the story of medical workers who gamble and play God with the lives of patients under their care.

The agency decided to do something radical to make the posters stand out amongst the many others at the festival. While some movie studios spend thousands of dollars jazzing up their promotional media with all sorts of gimmicky effects, New! worked on making the quality of photos used in the posters as low resolution as they could get away with.

Superheroes---Past-&-Present---Wolverine---An-illustration-by-Khao-Ho

The most memorable superheroes are not just those with almost-supernatural powers or fantastic gadgets, but the ones with whom we empathize with the most. Comic book writers cleverly give these powerful beings wonderful origin stories, which not only lend them a touch of poignant vulnerability, but also justifiable reasons for their single-minded pursuit of justice.

Khao Ho, an illustrator from San Francisco, California, created this minimalist poster series to show us that “despite the trials of our past, what we choose to do moving forward is much more important to us and the world we share.”
