Richard Turley: Off the Grid Dar Sangre

Richard Turley art directed Guardian newspaper’s G2 coverage for the Glastonbury Festival using a rather unorthodox approach, and then wrote about the process in detail:

Whatever or whenever it was, there was no other decision to be made. We were going off the grid. We were going off the grid in a big way…. To reflect the intense, animated, spiritual, blissful yet peculiarly organised chaos, the obvious course of action was to embrace it. To express this visual assault, each spread would be dominated by imagery, having full-out photographs as backgrounds, with text boxes sitting on top of images.
Gridgets for iPhone

Customizable, Dashboard-like widgets for iPhone. The idea has merit but doesn’t appear to be much more than a launcher for sites/apps. Would be nice if these were actual widgets rather than just shortcuts.

Leaflets for iPhone Leaflets

Dashboard-like widgets for iPhone by BlueFlavor. These, on the other hand, are more like actual widgets.
