For their July issue which is dedicated to sex and the erotic, Wallpaper* tapped legendary art director Peter Saville and photographer Nick Knight to create and shoot the ultimate adult play pen. Here’s a little teaser to see how they got on.
“asked designers – from students to superstars – to find the tart hiding in every type and create their own graphic numbers. Along with a selection in the magazine, all 450 cards can be viewed here. They will also be on display at KK Outlet, London from 22nd to 29th June.”

I remember when computer art animations were all the rage back in the 90’s. It’s now 2009 and we still like them. You Work For Them has created a DVD that explores sound nature, motion and time.
