Graduation project 2011
Designed as a possible title sequence for a fictitious documentary, this film shows a history of the title sequence in a nutshell. The sequence includes all the names of title designers who had a revolutionary impact on the history and evolution of the title sequence. The names of the title designers all refer to specific characteristics of the revolutionary titles that they designed.
This film refers to elements such as the cut and shifted characters of Saul Bass' Psycho title, the colored circles of Maurice Binder's design for Dr. No and the contemporary designs of Kyle Cooper and Danny Yount.
This title sequence refers to the following designers and their titles:
Georges Méliès - Un Voyage Dans La Lune, Saul Bass - Psycho, Maurice Binder - Dr. No, Stephen Frankfurt - To Kill A Mockingbird, Pablo Ferro - Dr. Strangelove, Richard Greenberg - Alien, Kyle Cooper - Seven, Danny Yount - Kiss Kiss Bang Bang / Sherlock Holmes

Information technology has become a ubiquitous presence. By visualizing the processes that underlie our interactions with this technology we can trace what happens to the information we feed into the network.
This year's titles for FOTB were created by Nando Costa through the use of macro motion pictures and materials with magnetic properties.
The choice of materials was driven by the desire to graphically represent the concepts of attraction and repulsion. The idea that graphic artists of all sorts attend events such as FOTB because they are inspired and therefore attracted to each other's work, while at the same time often competing in the same fields as peers, which represents the repulsion factor.

seeper love to de-familiarise the familiar; re-opening our eyes to a spectacular world.
Working in collaboration with Vimeo to conclude the Vimeo Festival and Awards, seeper introduced “Light Lining” to the USA with a neon-veined visual embrace. The strange contours of the Frank Gehry IAC Headquarters building in New York City provided the perfect canvas for this spellbinding display of sight and sound.
And why should our urban environment be static? seeper are paving the way for a world that is reactive. We are giving the world a pulse.
Created by Guvenc Ozel (ozeloffice.com) Cerebral Hut is a kinetic installation that works with an interface that measures brain frequencies and turns them into a reactive environment. It was initially on view in the Fall of 2012 at Istanbul Museum of Modern Art, as part of the Istanbul Design Biennial. Its second installment happened in Saatchi Gallery in London during August 2013, as a part of "Red Never Follows" exhibition sponsored by the fashion brand Hugo. In London, the electromechanical design and applications were updated by media artists Onur Sonmez and Jaak Kaevats.
Cerebral Hut is an interactive installation that explores the relationship between architecture, movement and human thought. We traditionally assume that the built environment, whether in the architectural or the urban scale influences our psyche. What if we can reverse that relationship? What if a kinetic architecture could establish a direct connection between the thoughts of its user and itself in order to reconfigure its physical boundaries accordingly?
