Butcher's Hook: three students repurpose an old London butcher's shop to establish their design studio

"Butcher's Hook is (or perhaps that should be will be) a three–member design studio and gallery based in an old butcher's shop in London's Portobello. The studio has been formed by Benio Urbanowicz, James Coltman, Josh Blanchett and Dan Jones, students from Kingston and LLC, all of whom graduate this summer. ...

In order to introduce themselves to the local populace, Butcher's Hook set up a digital display using an old Nintendo Wii remote, custom made Infa–Red yellow pencils, a wireless doorbell, a printer and a few extra ingredients.

'We gave away free art made by the user themselves, with the option to receive a digital copy sent to them,' they say. 'We had a great weekend, where over 150 people got involved, through their own choice... and every single one went home to find our business cards printed on the back of their own masterpiece.'

As well as launching their studio, Butcher's Hook has also entered the project into the D&AD Student Awards in response to the brief Make Your Mark."

Soft Cinema: Today's Interfaces And Tomorrow's Cinema

"Soft Cinema bridges the gap between today's interfaces and tomorrow's cinema. This programme assembles a variety of audio–visual materials (city impressions, 2D animations, infrared images, music) from a database and edits everything into stories. Software decides what appears on the screen, where and in what order. The screen's lay–out is refreshed at the start of each new episode and the corresponding material is distributed across multiple windows. The resulting clips will be shown on monitors in the festival lounge, with a voice–over guarding the overall storyline."
