If Words Could Fly
This inspiring and beautiful 3D poster was created in support of the people of Fukushima, Japan. Called ‘Words can fly a thousand miles’, the sentiment seems quite apt again after the Oklahoma Tornado.
The team of designers based in Montreal were inspired by the Japanese custom of Senbazuru that promises luck or a wish to anyone folding a thousand origami cranes.
Once complete, the team sough donations and handwritten messages to console and encourage people after the devastation. You can see it in progress here.

The world is full of contrasts, and contrasts are full of beauty.
Side by Side project uses Instagram as its main platform. The idea is to choose a couple of pictures from different Instagram users and put them together to create a contrast or relation between them.

McRib is Back by Jonathan Devis
His teacher told him to take art more seriously… and here is his rebuttal on his final project.
Brilliance. Don’t ever let an art teacher tell you what you need to do to be an “artist”. That’s up to you. This kid fucking rules.
The book investigates the concept of information overconsumption. In the 21st century, we are bombarded with vast amounts of information each day as a consequence of the ever-growing digital age. Prior to the introduction of the web, material was harder to source; therefore individuals were more selective over what information they choose to read. This contrast in how we read information today as apposed to pre-digital times inspired me into investigating the processes of navigation and filtering through information on-screen.
This book is therefore an outcome of my research and development shown in a publication that represents the day-to-day journey of information consumption that an average person may encounter while browsing online. It expresses how a quick look on Facebook or a browse on YouTube can turn into hours of procrastination or overconsumption of immaterial knowledge.
