PAPER SURGERY – ANAMORPHOSIS

PAPER SURGERY – ANAMORPHOSIS

It is no secret how much Brandpowder loves paper. And how much we like to play with it, especially when there’s something printed on it. We gave this constant struggle to break the two dimensions a name: Paper Surgery. It’s a sort of Media-Origami mixed with Trompe-Collage and a touch of Iconoclastic Voodoo. Tree Pulp ... Read More »

THE TOUGHEST PRISON IN THE WORLD

THE TOUGHEST PRISON IN THE WORLD

Tankarat is considered the toughest prison in the world. The facility is housed into a mansion on Schodack Island, 150 miles north of New York City. It all started when Robert Brown, a former US Chief of Security, contacted the Brandpowder Team. Brown had inherited this property from an uncle he didn’t even know to have. ... Read More »

MOBILITY IS FOR LOSERS

MOBILITY IS FOR LOSERS

IF THIS PICTURE strikes you as familiar, you are one of the 1 billion ‘stuck drivers’ in the world. Things will get worse: traffic will reach its peak by 2030 and big cities, by then, will have more cars than paved roads to run them on. There’s no way out, and If you try to escape ... Read More »

IT’S ALL SMOKE!

IT’S ALL SMOKE!

  IF YOU ARE A SMOKER you’ll be happy to read this. If you aren’t, you might consider, for the very first time, to take up smoking.

KLAUS URA, A KILLER ARTIST.

KLAUS URA, A KILLER ARTIST.

Dear Reader, please do judge by the appearance and welcome with a smile this creepy stuff. Brandpowder is uncomfortably happy to introduce the work of Klaus Ura, a former criminal who, bored to kill, turned himself to authorities and, once enveloped by the cozy walls of a mental hospital, turned into an artist. Klaus Ura’s ... Read More »

ICE IS COOL.

ICE IS COOL.

  We recently sent these proposals to Martini and we are now waiting for an answer. Fingers crossed, guys! Global warming is not considered by the majority of us as an urgent problem.

MISTER DROP

  It’s shaped like a drop and it’s called Mister Drop. Who is Mister Drop? Simply put, he’s a bullshit detector, somebody that accepts no shit whatsoever.

THE PERFECT CAR

THE PERFECT CAR

The Challenge: take the two most beautiful cars ever made, the sexiest babes on wheels that ever happened to roam the planet, and put them together, literally. If this sounds totally crazy to you, it’s because it is. Nobody attempted something so complicated, before. The technical challenges are enormous even to the most skilled team ... Read More »

FEED YOUR IMAGINATION

FEED YOUR IMAGINATION

A few posters from a campaign to encourage creativity in communication, sponsored by Brandpowder. The market has slumped into a maze of marketing rules and numbers that killed intuition and the magic of the unpredictable. Big Data is the new Big Brother regulating every relationship between people and things. The only way to get out ... Read More »

INSIDE MY BRAIN I PAY NO RENT.

INSIDE MY BRAIN I PAY NO RENT.

THIS IS MY BRAIN, AS SEEN FROM OUTSIDE ON A SUNNY AFTERNOON. Welcome to my brain! Or even better: welcome to an attempt to its spatial representation!

JESUS AIRLINES

JESUS AIRLINES

JESUS AIRLINES is the boldest Brandpowder’s project to date. We sent a draft of what follows to the Vatican, without response (understandably) but the idea is waiting for an investor with vision and faith. The whole story started with a photograph taken by one of our employees (Bob Gukka) while taking off from a local ... Read More »

ALMOST PORN

ALMOST PORN

ALMOST PORN. THE LAST FRONTIER OF SEX.  -   by Brandpowder  ©  2013. Let’s admit it. Porn has said it all. It’s repetitive, patterned, out-of-date, monotonous, trite, prosaic, insipid, self-quoting, in one word: Boring! The maximum variation you can expect from any given story ranges from “hmm, ah, hmm, ah, yes, yes!” to “hmm, ah, ... Read More »

WORST BOOKS OF 2013

WORST BOOKS OF 2013

We couldn’t find a lot of interesting books around, lately. No wonder the publishing industry is in deep ‘sheet’.  The majority of publishers seems to have developed a certain taste for crap wrapped in a glossy dustjacket. To make things worse, talented writers with something to say are disappearing, just like happened to big reptiles and ... Read More »

PAPER SURGERY 2

PAPER SURGERY 2

Paper. What a fragile, soft, crumpled and easyburning word. If paper sounds almost outdated, as old as stone or bone, it’s because it has been displaced by the digital efficiency of glass. Our fingertips run on its surface, tapping on contents which magically pop up, slide, zoom and disappear. But none of the content on ... Read More »

HELVETIA DROP
