Moonlight Towers

October 21 2015 — by dave.morris
Inspiration
Earlier this year, I went on a road trip vacation through some of the southern United States. It's probably not for everyone, but one thing I was particularly keen on visiting was one of the antique streetlights - known locally as 'moonlight towers' - that are still dotted through Austin, Texas. If you've not heard of them before, I highly recommend following their story a little. These things are more than a hundred years old, they tower over the streets at more than fifteen storeys in height, and their history includes arc lamps, night time formal social gatherings, a film by Richard Linklater, and even something called the 'Servant Girl Annihilator'.

Channel 4 rebrand

I spotted an entry on the Brand New blog a few days ago about the new Channel 4 brand identity. This film, created by DBLG & SQUA to introduce the rebrand, is a masterpiece in confidence and a measure of just what a strong logo they're working with: You don't have to see the logo at all to recognise it.

Of course, we also have some history with this logo ourselves...

Gasper & Son - A Documentary About Neon-Crafters in NYC

October 13 2015 — by dave.morris
Inspiration
We're big fans of craftsmanship and the hand-made, here, so it will come as no surprise at all that the tradition of neon sign crafting delights many of us. I was recently alerted to Gasper & Son, a documentary about a small neon business of the same name in New York City. The film was made last year by Freckless Productions, whose previous film about my favourite childhood novel, The Phantom Tolbooth, is also rather delightful. I've only seen the trailer for Gasper & Son so far, but you can watch the whole thing online for free:

There is also a screening coming up in New York on Monday evening, so if you're nearby it might be worth investigating!
