Feel Good Valentine’s Day Printables

 

This month we partnered again with Vivian Kvitka, aka The Good Viv, to bring you two printable valentines to spread the love. The world needs as much as it can get, and a sweet sentiment or piece of mail (that’s not a bill) has the ability to make people genuinely smile! These print two to a page and can be mailed like a postcard – just write on the back, address, and add stamp – or handed out in person. I think the thing I love most is neither is actually Valentine’s Day specific, they’re all about love and support so print out a bunch and share the good feels!

Frances Berry

 

Frances Berry‘s photographs could almost feel all too familiar if you didn’t notice something… off. Berry seeks to “create alternatives to the traditional snapshot that reinforce rather than destroy our internal visualization of time so that one may revisit a moment in a more authentic and meaningful way”. Her mastery of not only photography but digital manipulation make a powerful combination.

Isabella Nazzarri

 

Isabella Nazzarri‘s art makes me feel so many things, above all else elation. But what fascinates me most is her definition of millennial art. Nazzarri essentially says that abstraction and figuration are things of the past, that these dated classifications are no longer functional or important. A read through of her Texts section goes much more in depth and I found it very worthwhile.

Basic House II

 

Basic House II by Martin Azua is a habitable space that’s foldable, inflatable, and reversible. The experimental prototype is constructed out of polyester and is currently part of MOMA’s collection in New York. This almost immaterial house self-inflates with body heat or from the heat of the sun, it protects from the cold one way and from the heat when reversed.

Adams Carvalho

 

Sao Paulo, Brazil-based illustrator Adams Carvalho has been hard at work creating digital art, which is he then prints onto cotton paper. Adams’ choice of pastels really reflect the subject matter at hand incredibly well – surfer chic, millennial land! Check out his shop here.

Norma Lehmeier Hartie

 

Norma Lehmeier Hartie‘s art is a two part process, first she creates fiber felted balls and then she digitally photographs and manipulates them. Each ball is playful, vibrant, and invites you to explore the tiniest of details. You can’t help but feel happy just looking at them!

Get Pumped for the Big Game with Intel’s 360 Replay Technology!

 

If you follow me on social media you may have noticed two things.
1. I absolutely love football, and
2. I’m taking part in Intel’s #ExperienceMore campaign, featuring their crazy cool 360 replay technology.

So what’s that all about, you might be asking. The short answer is that Intel’s 360 replay technology can transform an ordinary viewing experience into an in-depth one with a view of the game from any angle. Super cool, yes? YES! At the game they’ll be using advanced computing and 38 5K high-definition cameras to create enhanced replays and highlights. These multiple high-def cameras are installed at fixed intervals around the stadium to create massive amounts of data, which produce a three-dimensional and 360-degree reconstruction of the play that can be viewed from any angle. Insanely cool!

 

 

Intel’s #ExperienceMore campaign invites you to design and submit your own masterpiece featuring a frame of Tom Brady and his iconic throw. Pick an angle and design your own for a chance to score a spot in the ultimate fan-powered Game Day video this Sunday! You can either use the site’s tools or download the image and go to town with your own – digital, paint, marker, every form of creativity is welcome – before uploading.

 

 

During the game I’ll be keeping track of Intel’s social channels and waiting to see if any of my three designs make the cut in their user generated 360 video!

This post sponsored by Intel. As always, all words and opinions are my own. Thank you for supporting the brands that help keep Design Crush creating fresh content!

Titus Kaphar

 

Titus Kaphar takes recognizable styles of art and reworks them with his own style of magic. Kaphar cuts, bends, sculpts, and mixes the works of Classic and Renaissance painters, reconstructing art history in the process. Once he’s finished, what started as a painting now resembles a sculpture.
