The RGD DesignThinker of the Year Award

This magnificent specimen of an award was created as the trophy for the RGD DesignThinker of the Year Award. The design was completed by Jacknife and explores the central theme of “visually representing the design thinking process” and they used the traditional and rather popular human skull. What a spanking good idea.

Winning this coveted prize means you are pretty much the coolest guy/girl on the planet who has utilised design to drive business success through innovation, problem solving and communication.

Vinyl Skulls by Ted Riederer

This unique creations are Melted Vinyl Skulls by Ted Riederer. Ted, like most of us, is big fan of art and music and he decided to create these skulls by placing a vinyl onto a plaster skull and then melting them so the vinyl shapes itself over the skull nearly perfectly.

The series is titled Primal Sound and more of Ted’s work can be found here.

Giant Dragon Skull Found on Beach

This is a obvious sign that Daenerys Targaryen, Queen of Dragons, is coming for the British Crown. Or maybe she has already been and we defeated her and her dragon-army and this bad-boy skull just washed up on the shore, after evading fossil hunters for years and years…

Actually the dragon skull is part of a publicity stunt by BlinkBox promoting the fact that they have the Game of Thrones series available on their new video-on-demand service. The 40-foot dragon skull was left on Charmouth beach, along England’s Jurassic Coast, which has been the site of many fascinating dinosaur-fossil discoveries over the years.

White Lady with Black Glove Doll

Christine’s husband left a comment in our contact section with a link to her work and we were happy to do a post about it. Christine Polis does a variety of things including creating dolls, stop-motion puppets and illustrations. Her work has a similar feel to some of Tim Burton’s movies so I wonder if she got any inspiration from those calibre of films.

This particular doll is called ‘White Lady with Black Glove’ and features a skull on top as the head.

Excerpt take from Christine Poli’ website:

“The white ladies appear for centuries, in castles on the battlefield or at the roadside. Some are ambivalent, they announce a good presage if they wear white gloves but also death if they are black”
2012 / 45cm tall / Single piece, cast resin, silk, thermoformed, organza, polymer clay, old lace.

Skull Helm From Dark Heart Armoury

I wonder what the reaction would be if you turned up at one of those fantasy/medieval battles they have in parks (not actually sure where), wearing this skull helm , kitted out in full armour astride a massive warhorse. Shitting all round I’m guessing.

This amazing skull helm was created by DK Wickstrom – Armourer and Chief Thingmaker over at Dark Heart Armoury.
