1. This video essay is an analysis of Wong Kar Wai's use of colors. WKW is without doubt, one of cinema's great colorists. His films are renowned for their distinctive style, in which colors segue and blur into each other.

    Color in films are a product of collaboration between the director and his cinematographer, in this case: Christopher Doyle. Color is one of the most powerful factors in someone's psychological build.

    This video was made for the purpose of paying tribute to one of the greatest filmmakers.

  3. In a recent two-day Gestalten workshop, participants worked closely with Jessica Hische (a letterer, illustrator, and crazy cat lady known for her silly side projects and occasional foul mouth, as she jokingly describes herself) to develop a full vector alphabet and learn about drawing type in a short amount of time. Hische has been named a Forbes Magazine “30 under 30” in art and design as well as an ADC Young Gun and one of Print Magazine’s “New Visual Artists”. Gestalten.tv took the chance of a very brief break during the workshop to let Jessica talk us through some of the pros and cons of the letters B/E/R/L/I/N. Her work is profiled in:

  4. A talk by Laura Kalbag (@laurakalbag). It’s all too easy to get caught up in fancy new web development techniques and forget that the responsive approach also requires a different mindset during the design process. Focusing on design principles for multiple devices, and discussing how we can fit responsive design into our process, I want to help break down the walls we’ve been hitting with concepts, clients and our own creativity.
