Amazing Cake Design, Too Good to Eat!

Amazing Cake Design, Too Good to Eat!

Our BDM Rachael recently visited the Cake International Baking show at Manchester's Event City... she was amazed at how fantastic the cakes on display were, and how many cake gadgets and accessories there really are!

The unbelievable designs were for all occasions and they looked far too good to eat! There were wedding cakes, birthday cakes, christening, Cupcakes, and all the paraphernalia that goes with decorating them: jewells, lace icing, chocolate shoes and flowers, porcelain and sugar flowers. Mary Berry and Mich Turner decorated cakes and created recipes in front of live audiences, which was inspiring and a talent in itself.

You would never guess that the below image is a cake; it could pass as a model design....

 

The point being made is that cake baking and designing and decorating is most definitley an Art and the creative design skill set is absolutely fantastic and a true talent!  Maybe we should start pushing bespoke cake designs as ways of marketing our clients businesses and organisations, sending out  fantastic branded cakes out to prospective clients! (don't worry, we're only joking... but it may be worth considering for some clients especially those in the cake decorating industry)

Blab 15

Blab 15

Our designers attended the latest BLAB at Band on the wall in Manchester. Talks were from Tom Muller and Kyle Bean who both are extremely talented people.

During Toms’ talk, he spoke about not keeping to one area of design and how he is always flexible with what briefs he takes on. One day he could be working on a comic book logo, the next he could be designing a website for a popstar. He’s hugely influenced by comic books from a young age, and is now enjoying designing for the industry amongst lots of other things.

Kyle showed a great display of his work, he has such a incredible skill working with paper and other materials.

His portfolio really does speak volumes and you can see why he was worked for such a great list of clients in a short space of time. One particular piece I really enjoyed looking at was the advert he created for Peugeot. The hours that were spent to make a 30 second advert are mind blowing. Luckily Kyle had the animators from Aardman to help with filming. You can view the advert here.

A print was given out at the end of the talks which was designed by May Ninth. It’s a great print and is ready to be put up in our studio.

Windows of New York

Windows of New York

Recently we came across this great blog project from José Guizar. It’s a simple idea and executed brilliantly, we look forward to seeing more over the coming weeks.

http://www.windowsofnewyork.com/

“The Windows of New York project is a weekly illustrated fix for an obsession that has increasingly grown in me since chance put me in this town. A product of countless steps of journey through the city streets, this is a collection of windows that somehow have caught my restless eye out from the never-ending buzz of the city. This project is part an ode to architecture and part a self-challenge to never stop looking up.”

Interiors Show 2012

Interiors Show 2012

Here at Synergy, we are inspired by and passionate about all areas of design, not merely print and digital. Recently we attended the Interiors UK exhibition at Birmingham's NEC and were very keen to see the design trends for 2012.

We were not disappointed. Each hall had a different theme and contained a vast range of furniture, lighting, soft furnishings, fabrics, flooring and accessories. The cascading stands and demonstrations presented exciting interior themes, ranging from industrial, vintage and statement glamour!

It was a great way to spend our Sunday and we will certainly be able to use and digest the trends for 2012 into the ongoing work within Synergy... So watch this space.

Blab #9

Blab #9

Synergy sponsored and were represented by members of the creative team, at Blab 9, held in The Deaf Institute in Manchester recently. 

Speakers Mat Heinl and Ian Anderson kept a packed forum entertained with their different presentational styles and invited us into their thinking and often amusing approach to how they work. The gulf between agencies/consultancies in terms of budgets, timescales and client buy-in is often wide, but the ‘show’ indicated that we all apply (or should do) the basic principles of the strategic/creative process to ensure we create successful and stunning work.

Typography and Urban Space

Typography and Urban Space

A couple of months ago myself and Phil (Decode) were asked by MA Anthropology student Nija Dalal to take part in her ‘Typography and Urban Space’ thesis.



It was great meeting Nija, she’s from a design background and has now branched out into Anthropology but still with a healthy appreciation for design and typography. We found it a fascinating subject, thoroughly enjoyable and were glad we could help out. Good luck with your grade!



You can find out more about the thesis here and there is also a short, edited section from it here.
