Keep on Truckin’!

Photography collective Photodebut came up with a novel way to get their latest exhibition *ahem* on the road. Their solution was to acquire a 40-tonne truck and display a range of photography on lightboxes stashed within the hold. With the tarpaulin pulled to one side, the empty truck became a huge display space that was also (rather conveniently) fully portable, as the show travelled to three sites in London last week.

Photodebut’s travelling exhibition – Stop Moving – came to a halt in Hoxton Square, Elephant and Castle and Brick Lane and was an attempt, say the debuters, at bringing a sense of stillness and reflection into some of the captital’s busiest areas.

Photodebut is an non-profit organisation which supports, promotes and connects ambitious photographers. Founders Jan von Holleben (former director, YPU-UK), Esther Teichmann (RCA and Rankin Photography) and Andy Porter (SIAD graduate) hope to encourage the sharing of ideas, imagery, and information amongst photographers and to cultivate a positive and powerful photographic community.

Designing for Modern Times

With a new font, masthead, crest and thorough restyling of its navigational system, The Times has completed the final stages of its transition to compact format that originally began in November 2003. Neville Brody and designer Jon Hill talked us through the changes they undertook, working with deputy editor Ben Preston and the paper’s in-house design team. “I likened it to moving from a house to a bedsit but not unpacking,” says Brody. “We helped them to unpack and to put stuff on the shelves. We made it more spacious.”

Mastercard commercialHLA’s Simon Ratigan has directed this new TV spot for Mastercard, which aims to tug at those Christmas heartstrings by emphasising the significance of family and friends.

Why does everybody shoot work like this?

This rather nice set of posters (featured on Computer Love) is by German designer Michalt Slawek. All very lovely, but they left me wondering one thing: Why is it that this has become the default way to photograph graphic design work?
