Ed Boaden

I am an interface designer at Bleep.com in London.
I have a passion for objects that are beautiful, ideas that are elegant, and things that make me smile.

I was looking through old flash files and remembered this background animation loop that was cut short in the final video.

Prof. Dr, Max Bruckner, Four Plates from the Book “Vielecke und Vielflache”, (1900)
Regular convex polyhedra, frequently referenced as “Platonic” solids, are featured prominently in the philosophy of Plato, who spoke about them, rather intuitively, in association to the four classical elements (earth, wind, fire, water… plus ether). However, it was Euclid who actually provided a mathematical description of each solid and found the ratio of the diameter of the circumscribed sphere to the length of the edge and argued that there are no further convex polyhedra than those 5: tetrahedron, hexahedron (also known as the cube), octahedron, dodecahedron and icosahedron.

Brand identity for Rinse 20 by Give Up Art.
The logo consists of 400 versions – using different typefaces used on Rinse artwork over the past 20 years – with Rinse applying different versions of the logo on each application.
The hyper-saturated gradient over the photography looks great too. I’m totally into Princess Nokia right now, shame I can’t make it to Fabric on Friday.
Happy birthday Rinse!

I’ve been playing Hohokum for the past couple of weeks, having awaited its release for what seems like years, and following Richard Hogg’s work post-Airside.
The game is delightful. I would normally opt for a greater degree of interaction: the strong focus on discovery, with no over-arching narrative, makes the game initially confusing, but ultimately makes for an extremely relaxing play, almost ambient in its lack of need for player awareness. Small stories within each world reveal themselves as you move about to provide some objectives within the game; tiny details in character interactions delight.
I’ve almost completed the game, but I have a feeling I’ll be coming back to cruise through the charming worlds again and again.
PlayStation’s focus on independent gaming seems to be doing them a service, and I’m excited to see what else this brings to the platform in the future.

Renata, Holden

Design and art direction for this, and all visual material for James Holden’s The Inheritors, by Jack Featherstone. The analogue image making and animation goes hand in hand with the analogue production of the album – my favourite of last year.
