Vote Chris Christmas Rodriguez

His campaign is just hilarious.

Crated by London agency Mother with Argentine Pelucafilms (year 2000). Chech out this article in order to see more details about this campaign, it's very well explained (better than I could for this case) and it's the best information I've founded about it.

The Designer Behind: Apple, Jonathan Ive

Let me introduce you to this new section on Graphic Hunter that I've called "The Designer Behind...". Here I'll show you who's the responsible of famous brand or product design. In this very first chapter I'll talk about the designer behind Apple products. I know...This is not exactly Graphic Design but you'll be agree with me when I say that Apple products have become not only useful products but also pleasurable to own, use and WATCH. Although they're Industrial Design icons, they're eyes-candies too! Apple products are famous by their design innovation shown at the same time with technology improvement. So, who are we talking about? We are talking abut Jonathan Ive, the designer behind Apple. He is a London born designer, and nowadays is the Senior Vice President of Industrial Design at Apple. The New York Times has described him as "perhaps the most influential designer in the computer world", and of course he is! In his work we can find the revolutionary all-in-one computer iMac G3 that broke the traditional computer-design conception in 1998. He has also designed the new generations of iMac, the iPod and the new MacBook Air! This talented designer is clearly a reference on seraching (and finding) the complement between design and technology. Eye candies, pleasurable to use and own...Can't be better.

Tomas Munita

Tomas Munita is a chilean photographer born in Santiago. His work is mostly based on photojournalism capturing silent and dramatic moments of real life in places like Afghanistan, Pakistan or India. His snapshots took my breath away. To think that all those scenes weren't previously prepeared, those dirty and hopeless faces... We all have an idea about what's happening in the other side of the globe by the news on TV and the newspapers, but watching non-commented scenes is definitely different. Munita's silent images say so much more than news can do.

Graphic Design history mistakes

They say that mankind have to learn of mistakes made throughout history. Well graphic designers have something to learn about it too. Colleagues, don't EVER make these mistakes again!

**Unfortunately I don't know who made all these...things. BUT WE'RE ALL WATCHING YOU PEOPLE!

MacBook Air "soundtrack"

Well this time I want to talk about Apple advertising. I've always loved the way they introduce their products to their customers (and fans, why not) or possible ones, giving always sophistication, elegance and freshness. They just know how to represent the "think different" concept by the video and the music involved in it. Let's take a look at the music. They tend to use soft music, that mixes some kind of a "tiny-shiny" way to show what they want. Maybe there is a little bit of irony that they want to show to their main competitor, Microsoft (let's remember the music of the "I'm a Mac and I'm a PC" ads, and video of course). For now I'm going to show the music behind the MacBook Air Ads, just because is the only one that I've discoverd (lol). The singer is Yael Naim, and the song: New soul. Perfect for the product.

Haven't seen the MacBook Air Ad yet? Check this out:

Váscolo is an Argentinian agency. They have several works on motion graphics, design and illustration. The high quality of their works makes me feel that something's going on in Argentina about design. These people don't need to be in Japan or Europe for making great products of prime quality. Among their clients are NatGeo, MTV, Warner Channel, Fox, Nickelodeon...just WOW.

Platinum FMD

Platinum FMD is an image conception studio which works on photography and pos production. Their work is to construct images using tools such as photography, 3D and illustration trying "to make the impossible become reality", and they literally do thanks to a thirteen artists staff. This brazilian studio has amazing works on their portfolio, those kind of works that makes you wonder "gosh, how can they do that!". Just awsome.
