out and about.

it was really interesting and enjoyable session. we've been to 5 different places in shoredich. the first was the kemistry gallery. there was an exhibition of lou dorfsman's works.
this is the reproduction of the part of the main dorfman's creation gastrotypographicalassemblage.

there are lots of pictures inside!

actually this one looked more effective than the scaled photocopy of the whole work on the opposite wall.

but i have no doubt that the original is amazing!
there were other works with brilliant typography, these are ones i liked the most.

cbs design.

and here is the movie that played on this tv set.
our next stop was the white cube's exhibit space. i have quite complicated relationship with contemporary art. i mean the works were quite interesting and i think there are many ways of application for it, but i can't understand the reason of creating them just as a "piece of art". i mean design is a useful thing. designers create their works for a reason. they are telling you something trough their posters/ads/illustrations, they are making supermarket shelves look nicer making packages for food and stuff, they are designing infographics and navigation to help people get some information in a short time, mags, books, sites and so on. but what do the artists do?
alrightalright, probably i'm all wrong and just don't get it. anyway i liked the paper on the walls upstairs!

the next place was kk outlet and the exhibition was really cool. i felt myself dumb because i've always wanted to draw something like this (since i knew about the offset printing) but never did.

4th – the ycn studio's shop and library. it is really good agency which created the last beck's campaign.
i liked the sign veryveryvery much. it looks like some winking lamps but this are sequins which are blinking because of the wind.
i adore mirrors.
some books.
the thing in front of the doorway.

and this is an interesting sign of our last destination.
i really enjoyed the time, it was a great day!
