In today's society people's spirits are constantly suppressed by all the rules in order for the modern world to function. We Set Sail's music allows people to tap into their inner emotions or in this case their inner "ANIMAL" spirit. The goal was to illustrate the different contrasts of the music by blending different animals with paint clouds. Predators were used to show the aggression within the music and grazing animals were used to show the more elegant side of it.
When Sook was young, she saw a pretty bird on the mountain but bird quickly flew away, leaving only sound behind. She looked up in the sky to find the bird, but all she could see was tree branches and forest. The bird kept on singing, but she had no idea where it was. From very young, bird was the tree branches and big forest to her. This experience made her to visualize the sound of birds like forest. The sound of bird relaxes mind and body. This caught her attention, and she combined this with mandala, which visually represents healing and meditation.
Music is constantly chaotic and evolving, but always personal. This was the inspiration behind this generative system which fuses the artist’s identity with some of his musical journey’s aspects. The system fostered the team’s attempt to architect DjSarhi’s brand identity by capturing momentary tales of his music, whilst representing them in ‘Rorschach blot’ inspired ‘VIBEs’. By algorithmically mixing various seed inputs relevant to the musician, the system can iterate unlimited generations of curated design motifs – each telling a different and unique story.

The designer, Michael Parson, has long been curious of the possibilities that Opentype scripts now offer type designers. Thanks to this technology, design is no longer limited to the basic forms but can be enhanced with additional glyphs, ligatures or other features. He wanted to explore how to integrate these options into the less explored world of dingbat fonts. The resulting font, Lale offers a range of visuals that can be accessed by simply typing a sequence of signs, either letters; for the flowers, or numbers, for the stems. Both can be combined for a total of 4680 combinations.
Djinane AlSuwayeh grew up in a household that was a concoction of cultures; French and Kuwaiti, Christian and Muslim, European and Middle Eastern. Djinane was born and lived her artistic education in France; a cultural and artistic hub, boasting one of the world’s most creatively experimental capitals and yet was raised in Kuwait what is considered to be a late developing nation, with a sleepy and stagnant Fine Arts sector. Histoires Urbaines is a juxtaposed series of portraits of a city that inspired Djinane's creative process.
