I'm a big fan of director Jonathan Glazer and so stoked to see his new idents for Channel 4 [UK] out in the wild with the one shown above my favourite. Read more about the idents and rebrand over at the CR Blog. And don't forget 'Under The Skin' directed by Glazer and starring Scarlett Johansson is being screened this week on Film 4.
'Named Horseferry (for the display font) and Chadwick (for the information font), the fonts are key elements in a brand new look for the corporation’s main channel. New idents and containers for the typography are inspired by the deconstruction of the iconic Lambie Nairn “4”. The broadcaster’s award-winning in-house creative agency, 4Creative, commissioned Brody Associates to create the typeface and named the fonts after their two major London locations, Horseferry Road and Chadwick Street.'
Sam Hecht, one half of product design duo Industrial Facility, has been in touch with some news of their recent collaboration with Swedish lighting company Wäsberg. The w152 Busby Lamp is an electronic LED lamp that also provides intelligent USB power establishing new possibilities for the meeting point between light and electronics. The lamp can be seen up until this Sunday as part of this year's London Design Festival. Be sure to check out the mini-site for more info on the lamp itself.
