1. Mill+ collaborated with OFFF to create the title sequence for OFFF by Night, their latest on-the-road event, held in Antwerp, Belgium. The graphic sequence, directed by Mill+ designer Will Arnold, mixes simple colours with complex animated simulations to create trippy 70’s inspired visuals. With an open brief, Arnold took inspiration from bright colours and graphic patterns to create a truly mesmerizing image sequence using 3D animation rendered out in 2D colours.

  2. This work is a shocking early face mapping work. A buzz of 5 million views was born in a week.
    It became the roots of the face mapping series.

    This work is the theme of Japanese identity.
    While feeling that Japanese are losing confidence, where is Japan 's identity?
    What is the universal value that Japan can transmit to the world?
    Elements of Japan's identity such as Japanese traditional beauty, future technology, Japanism, etc. were pursued and integrated by members and collaboration members of kuwahara hiroto, Paul Lacroix, and Jin Hasegawa.

    Finally, when Android face transforms, grotesque dark mask appears from inside.
    It seems that it is a metaphor for a strange anxiety towards the future brought about by technology that continues to evolve at phenomenal speed.

  3. What will become of traditional printing techniques and technologies? In the age of digital, a handmade impression is a rarity.

    In this short vignette we share time and conversation with Lou and Bud, who have devoted their lives to the art and science of traditional printing. These men have kept the skills and machines of 20th century printing alive, and are now turning their attention to youngsters who might breathe life back into the Society.

    The Printers is the culmination of numerous visits and conversations over the course of a year, made in collaboration with photographer Lee Howell as part of his project "Trading Stories".

    Ucon and 8bar are two Berlin based brands who teamed up for this bike collaboration. They worked on this project together for the last year to make something special happen.

    'Stefan' the founder of 8bar is a true bicycle enthusiast and is also competing in races for over 15 years now. Together with a collective of cycle-crazy friends, he brought his vision to life to establish a bicycle company. 8bar is never pre-made or identical, each bike is a unique, co-created between 8bar and it’s owner-to-be. 8bar captures the progressive, fun and easy-going spirit of Berlin and its collaborative energy.

    Ucon established their opening collection in the early summer of 2001. Founders Jochen and Martin came with a vision to develop a lifestyle brand anchored by creativity, quality tailoring, innovative appliqués and ethical production. With a passion for the work of talented artists and the design community surrounding them, Jochen and Martin embraced collaborations to build a creative environment for the brand.

    Like you will see in this clip right here Ucon and 8bar also involved two more creative heads from Berlin. One of them is 'Toons', a Berlin famous painting artists and a true fan of the whole bike culture since he was a small boy. He handpainted the frame and brought their vision of the "feathering-design" into real life. Then there is the product-designer and illustrator 'Stulle' from Matzmate who did an amazing job customizing the bike saddle, foot straps and handlebar.
