BEATO

This might be a saying a lot, but André Beato has some of the best typographic work that I have seen in a while. A complex technical style combined with extremely clean vector illustration skills.

Augmented Reality

Going to have to add a technology category to NT for this one. Aurasma, an app designed by Autonomy, uses “augmented reality” to turn regular printed images into multimedia videos. It uses a pattern recognition platform called IDOL and a vast database to store mass amount of reference images, which are converted to the videos. I guess that this technology has been used for other purposes, but it seems like a really cool idea that could take off pretty quickly.

Paper Record Player

This wedding invitation, designed by Kelli Anderson, includes a paper record player that only requires a little folding and minor elbow grease. I have seen (and posted about too, I think) similar concepts such as the cardboard record player, but this is done very well.. and for a wedding invite! Kelli has some other very nice work, so be sure to check out her site. (via The Egotist)
