Watch Paper

This is a fully functional clock that is printed onto ordinary paper. Using a heat sensitive coating, the minutes and hours blur from one into the other in a very subtle, warm and organic way. The ornamented wallpaper was used to contrast the digital interactivity with our perception of traditional, static wall space. The graphic surface however could be changed to display any graphic or photographic motive.

Using the familiar language of segmented LED displays and running from a tiny chip, WATCH PAPER can be integrated into Wallpaper of any printable size. It was designed to appear only when it is needed in order to be an un-obtrusive element of the interior.

The "PixelRoller" project is a collabortive investigation into a new creative tool between Stuart Wood MA (RCA) Interaction Design and Florian Ortkrass MA (RCA) Design Products.

PixelRoller is a paint roller that paints pixels, designed as a rapid response printing tool specifically to print digital information such as imagery or text onto a great range of surfaces. The content is applied in continuous strokes by the user. PixelRoller can be seen as a handheld “printer”, based around the ergonomics of a paintroller, that lets you create the images by your own hand.

Adidas | adicolor graffiti

adidas gets it right with adicolor

If you're a regular reader of the Wooster website, then you've followed our ongoing critiques and commentary on how brands either get it right or get it entirely wrong when they attempt to assimilate graffiti and street art into their campaigns.

Not too long ago we took Sony PSP to task for launching an ill-conceived and deceptive campaign that showed how brands should "not" attempt to do these things.

So today, we thought we'd show you what we think is the other side of the coin - how companies can "get it right" with a clever, authentic campaign that gets all the details right.

We love the new campaign that adidas launched recently in Germany for adicolor.

Here's how it works:

First, adidas put up a series of mostly white flyerposters - branded with the adidas logo - that subtley encouraged people to tag the billboard and basically fuck it up.
