Here is splendid ad for Gant Rugger. I found out about video by doing a little digging on the work of art director Albin Holmqvist who is also the man behind the amazing typography of the EF – Live the Language videos. Holmqvist really did a great job at creating the typography to complement the subject matter in a nostalgic manner. It really has that old fashioned feel which was achieved by the vintage filmography and type style and most importantly the fashion.
Perhaps by paying attention to this quick tutorial, the viewer may adopt a few pointers on how to gain an impeccable sense of style.

Launch 2011 is fast approaching. This premier event will entail displays of art, graphic design, photography, and major emphasis on fashion. This year’s music headliner is Neon Indian, a psychedelic synth-pop artist whose sound has been compared to a cross between New Order and a saw wave cutting a Doobie Brothers song in half. Currently touring with Sleigh Bells, they’ve also played the late night stages of Kimmell and Fallon, and received high praise from the New York Times, Pitchfork, and Rolling Stone, just to name a few.
Launch Festival is an invigorating audio and visual experience you won’t want to miss. This third annual festival will be on July 23rd at The Greens Hotel in Sacramento. For more information visit 5432Launch.com or to buy tickets online visit Ticketleap.com.

Don’t even ask me how I stumbled across Midori Tsunoda‘s work. I have been meaning to post her work for the longest time so here it is. Midori is a Japanese based photographer and produces really stunning work that sucks your eyes right in to the subject by way of color, composition, and attention to detail. The photos are washed out with colors that pinch your soul with perfection. She really does a fabulous job of incorporating the background with the subject (i.e. the color of the subject with matching the color of the background). Specifically the third photo displays a background that is indulging the model in a fog-like form. It is refreshing to see that kind of aesthetic added to photography.

My good friend Liz posted this on my wall today on Facebook and I made sure to grab a cup of warm tea and to shut off any noise in my house to watch it. I’ve been a follower of Scott Schumman‘s blog The Sartorialist for over a year now and his work has been so inspirational for me. I’ve actually gifted his book at least three times already. As a photographer, this video is a breath of fresh air. Scott talks about how he came to be a photographer and why his work is so significant to our culture and especially our future. Oh and he uses the same camera as me; the good ol’ Canon 5D. Thanks for sharing this with me Liz.
