5. UK-based Joseph Egan is a student at the Chelsea College of Art and Design, and for his final project he created this amazing anamorphic type installations: the pieces align properly only when you look at it from a very specific angle.
This super creative typography installation, created by Bangkok-based design studio FARMGROUP, is made entirely from colorful drinking straws. It’s both mind-blowing in its execution and fabrication. Can you imagine sticking all those straws together?
Christmas & New Year decoration for Siam Center. We created hanging installation made by used drinking straws–these colourful plastic tubes act as the building blocks of larger shapes and words, which will bring the spirit of the Christmas season into this 3 dimensional installation. This installation tried to emphasize the idea that nearly anything has a second life and can be reused.

For almost 20 years, Goa has been the best monthly Sunday party in Madrid. An outstanding selective international music program and excessive attention to every last detail has been the secret to becoming its being a classic and a reference point. The last rebranding and visual work defined the different themes of each party: Celebrities, Apocalypse, Super Goa, Madriz, Like a Virgin, Naked and Rockstar. Photography & styling: Bartholot.8. Advertising studio Doyle Partners created these amazing adhesive tape installations for a New York Times article entitled “What if the Secret To Success Is Failure?”. In these supplemental illustrations, they point out universal character traits inherent in two NYC schools. Stylistically, it’s pretty much what Joseph Egan and Hunter Thompson did with their Anamorphic Type project, but that doesn’t make it any less amazing. Please check out the Doyle Partners website for more of this series, as well as some great behind-the-scenes images, and more of their work. Below is are some making-of videos to help you contextualize how insane this stuff is.
