“To the design stars through difficulty.”

That’s the idea behind our latest desktop release. From our humble digital planet, Alupa Creative strives to exceed our client expectations, and yes, even space itself. This highly stylized desktop takes into account the space between where we are and where we’re going.

Our flight path is set and our current trajectory is on target.

As our site evolves we will be adding, tweaking and streamlining our web presentation and functionality to maximize this site’s user experience.

Our emphasis will always be on clear, straight-forward communication, (because that’s really what the communication arts are all about) but we would like to continue to put a nice presentational icing on our digital cake.

AC_Lebowski-book

Rabid fans of the Coen Brother’s cult classic, The Big Lebowski have been gathering all over the US for years now, at a music and cinema festival simply known as “Lebowskifest.”

What the f&k is that, you may ask? Clearly, you’re not a golfer.

Design cycles

Cutom Bike Ride

Bikes, built beautifully.

Fast Boy Cycles, out of NYC, is producing some custom built bikes that don’t just look like a designer’s dream mode of transportation, they show like they should be framed on a wall. The company, run by Ezra, is a small cycle development firm that revels in custom orders.

In addition to the main site location they also have an affiliated fender site, Fast Boy Fenders, for those cyclists interested in a touch of class for their non-custom models. All – in – all a sleek little package indeed.

365 Days of stormtroopers

Storm Trooper 365

The photographer (Stéfan) of this Flickr photo set decided to add one photo a day, 365 days in a row, of Storm Trooper action figures in all kinds of unique situations. Some of funny, others are heartwarming, while others just seem like a couple of action figures, you know, hanging out.

While this idea at first glance seems a little dry and without merit except to the uber Star Wars fan, upon closer examination the action figures really do seem to come to life.

Posed inquisitively when faced with a situation similar to above; hugging each other on the beach as manly, rebel fighting comrades sometimes will do; looking scared when faced with a wookie action figure; all emotions are conveyed without even seeing their faces. You can just tell that they’re thinking “How in the Force did I get into this mess?”

You can see the full photo set (and subscribe for updates) at Stéfan’s feed over on Flickr.

Invader, an anonymous french street artist, has been planting these little pieces of culture in public places for years. The above video shows how one man, armed with only his love of pixels and pop culture, has created masterpiece works from an everyday kid’s toy.

The Auteurs

TheAuteurs

When working I often watch movies from such sites as Fancast, Hulu, Sidereel and other streaming video sites.

While most of the time this just amounts to listening to my favorite dialog from movies I’ve already seen, sometimes I can find movies that I never quite got around to viewing. One of the problems with catching up on cinema knowledge in this way is that the movies I really want to see are unavailable on the previously mentioned streaming video sites.
