Graffiti gets its fair share of bad press, fair enough people tagging and spraying inappropriate anecdotics on the walls might raise a chuckle but it is not art.
True graffiti is something to revel in and some of it belongs in a gallery rather than on the street, you might not share the same view but I personally class it as art.
With the recent interest in pixel art in design of late, I thought it would be great to talk about the pixel art on the street and share a few of the most creative and inspirational.
Whilst speaking to my brother (who happens to be a Video Games Artist) we got onto the subject of various digital art forms, this is when he introduced me to digital matte painting.
Digital matte painting (or Digimatte) is a modern take on the matte painting techniques used in photography and film making dating back to around 1900 and notably used in the movie "Raiders of the Lost Ark".
This post features 20 stunning and well executed examples of the digital matte painting technique. For those new to this style I hope you find it awe inspiring!
This is the second sport brand marketing post in the series, following up on a similar article focusing on "Nike" posters and commercials. This time we are focusing on another major player in the sports industry, Adidas.
Adidas has became a major force in the sporting world, none more so than in football where they have some of the biggest names, if not the biggest name in the industry; David Beckham. Over the last few years they have became a far larger brand, now focusing on becoming a fashion line on top of just sport wear, allowing them to involve non-sporting celebrities.
