Choros is a video showing exploring the movement of the human body in the form of a ‘chorus’ of women dancing. Those women are really dancer Terah Maher, shot in 32 repeating instances, and when overlaid they become a beautiful, trippy experience. Choros is the latest experimental art film from director Michael Langan.

Fastjet brand identity
Fastjet is a low cost airline in Africa. But they are also a rare branding success story to come from that continent. The airline is credited with democratising air travel for African passengers, and their new graphic identity reflects that. “The African Grey parrot is widely considered to be one of the most intelligent birds on the planet. It also is known in African mythology for having the ‘kindest and most generous heart’ — The bird is commonly kept as a family pet and are deeply loved by African people. All perfect connections for Africa’s newest and smarter way to travel.”
The identity is simple but beautiful. Floating concentric circles are anchored by the steady eye of the parrot. The graphic use of gray defines the beloved bird but also makes the connection to technology and machinery. The design is an example of restraint, every element pulls its weight. I can only imagine the joy this brand brings to Africans who are not yet the jaded travelers slumming through U.S. airports. For those still in awe of the magic of air travel, “Everyone can fly now” is a pretty big deal.
Branding identity and strategy by SomeOne out of London
Slavery is an ugly topic even when it’s about some far away place happening to someone else. But
when you have a direct connection to it, it is even uglier. Slavery Footprint is an online graphic calculator that will give you a hard number that estimates the number of slaves working to keep you happy and comfortable in your current lifestyle. The interface is happy and clean. Which is a smart move on their part. If feels like parting with the information they require to calculate your slavery footprint is harmless. On the surface, it is. But consider the headline on the opening screen, “Everyone says they would have fought against slavery 150 years ago. Now’s your chance.” Well, fellow slaveowner, what will we do?
