Yesterday I attended D&AD New Blood. Here are some of my favourite projects there.
Other notable projects:
I’m not a Snoop Dogg fan and I don’t promote smoking or drug use, but this is a very attractive and original concept. From The Dieline:
Introducing Rolling Words, Snoop Dogg’s smokable songbook. A promotion for Snoop Dogg’s Kingsize Slim Rolling Papers created by San Francisco agency Pereira & O’Dell.
Each page is a rolling paper with Snoop’s greatest songs and lyrics written on them – in non-toxic ink – for your rolling pleasure. The pages are perforated making them easy to detach.
The book is made of hemp-related materials, with the cover, binding, and internal lining all made from hemp seed paper while the spine of the book is a match striking surface.
From the official project page:
The book “Traumgedanken” (“Thoughts on dreams”) contains a collection of literary, philosophical, psychological and scientifical texts which provide an insight into different dream theories.
To ease the access to the elusive topic, the book is designed as a model of a dream about dreaming. Analogue to a dream, where pieces of reality are assembled to build a story, it brings different text excerpts together. They are connected by threads which tie in with certain key words. The threads visualise the confusion and fragileness of dreams.
On five pages there are illustrations made out of thread. Their shape and colour relies on the key words on the opposite page. This way an abstract image of the dream about dreaming is generated.
In addition there are five pages where a significant excerpt from a text of the opposite page is stitched into the paper. It is not legible because the type’s actual surface is inside the folded page. This expresses the mysteriousness of dreams and the aspect of dream interpretation.
