Graphic design gone wrong?

Here’s a video showing the examples in which typography and graphic design made things harder and less functional where they needed to make it a lot easier. But I guess like the narrator says, it’s hard to realize well designed things until the aren’t there anymore…

And here’s a bonus video. Don’t get frustrated or ashamed that you just pulled a door that has PUSH written all over it. Maybe it’s the design that is problematic. (And try not to think of Hodor 😩 )

Directorial “What if…”s

This video is a recut trailer from a youtube channel I’ve shared earlier.

Even though it is very creepy, it shows the importance of narration, editing and sound designing. 😀

Here’s another one, “What if Inception was a goofy holiday comedy?” It’s amazing what clichĂ©s can do for trailers.

Abstract: The Art of Design

Finally! A documentary about the “mysterious” act of design and the creative process.

Ma vie de Courgette (2016)

Here’s an animated movie I’m sad to have missed. The French movie has been airing in movie festivals all over the world, had a Golden Globe nomination and is shown at Sundance 2017 as we speak. Sadly, the movie was never actually released in Turkey except for the VERY limited Istanbul screenings of Film Ekimi in 2016. I would love to watch it if only I can find a platform to do that. So I wanted the frustration to spread by encouraging you to watch the trailer as well…
