The AIGA/NY invited a select group of New York designers to submit videos for October’s Midnight Moment. Midnight Moment is the largest coordinated effort in history by the sign operators in Times Square to display synchronized, cutting-edge creative content on electronic billboards and newspaper kiosks throughout Times Square every night.
Graphic Designer Andrew Sloat’s video “1st Amendment (excerpts)“ was ultimately chosen for its content, approach and distinctive execution. Using analogue techniques, Sloat focuses on the key elements of Times Square: color, words, and movement, with excerpts from the U.S. Constitutional First Amendment literally spelled out. The video reminds visitors of Times Square’s strong identity as the nation’s “town square.”
“A place like Times Square exists because the rights of free speech and assembly are broadly defined and protected in America. Yet in an urban environment, these freedoms are also constantly negotiated. This twelve-channel video celebrates the simple words that make this globally-famous place possible.” —Andrew Sloat
The video will premiere just before midnight on Tuesday, October 1st, and play every night throughout October from 11:57PM–midnight. Midnight Moment is a synchronized program and presentation of the Times Square Advertising Coalition (TSAC) and Times Square Arts.

Art Basel Miami Beach, the country’s buzziest art fair, is in full swing. Dozens of satellite events and temporary galleries have popped up during the fair, including “Moving the Still,” an exhibition made up entirely of GIFs.
As of this writing ‘projection mapping’ is one of the fastest growing mediums, being used in a variety of artistic and commercial projects. The basic idea: take a projector, point it at a physical volume like an object or an architectural element, and then map an image onto it.
The MadMapper provides a simple and easy tool for mapping projections. It removes a lot of the confusion related to this medium, effectively demystifying the process, allowing you, the artist or designer to focus on creating your content, and making the experience of mapping textures to physical objects in real time, fun.

Index Book | Typo Latino – 30 types and many more fonts
Index Book | Typo Latino – 30 types and many more fonts from Index Book on Vimeo.
Typo Latino is a publication where we showcase the work of emerging typographers as well as established type designers from across the globe. What differentiates Typo Latino from other font books is that we feature typefaces, outline the process of constructing them and provide short explanations from the authors on the formal characteristics or applications of each typeface. We want to show the working process, the final result and the end uses where they exist. As a compilation of best works by Latin authors, this text serves as a tribute to and an emphasis on Latin character.
