I’ve got an idea of a very artistic way to decorate a christmas tree. It is DIY. You can easily create an amazing bauble that imitates the look of Escher’s famous reflecting sphere. There are two ways to choose from.
A smartphone usually is laying on your desk without any additional purpose. Once I decided that it can be turned into a classic pixel icon — the «happy computer». The only thing you need is a special stand that looks like a small computer case. The easiest way to create such case is using some paper and glue. The papercraft is the way to create such thing. It took me few days to design a blueprint and now it is ready! The idea is pretty simple: you create the stand, then put a special wallpaper at lock screen of your phone , then put your phone in the stand. Voilà! You got a real life happy computer icon, which looks especilly good at a night
To create the stand you need heavy paper (you need something about 240-260 g/m2), it is better to use the matte one. A paper glue of a good quality. A paper cut knife and a ruler. Remember that you create the stand at your own risk! It is made of paper and it is not pretty solid, your phone can fall out and can be damaged, so be careful.
You can also download the assembly instructions
Download a proper wallpaper for you Lock screen. It would be better to turn off the Perspective Zoom feature for the wallpaper (in other case the image would not have a fixed position at the screen). That can be done at wallpaper choosing menu of your iPhone.
Then simply cut out all the elements from the blueprints and assemble them. Try to keep your hands clean, otherwise some black marks can be put. After the complection of the stand give some time for the glue to set. Meantime you can use a black magic marker (or black ink) to sweep under the carpet all seams
The spiritual successor for my project called The Diacritics: another concept of the CD cover with a special spot in it. In this case several emoticons are printed on a surface of the CD, so by rotating it you can switch between various emotional states of the main character
My personal project inspired by visual look of different diacritic symbols. A concept of a cd cover for a fictional music band The Diacritics and their album called “A”.The main idea is to utilize a special envelope with a slot in it. The slot helps to behold the diacritic symbols printed on the surface of the compact disc. The disk could be rotated since different symbols would appear on the cover
I’ve always wondered why t-shirts and some other clothing only have fixed artworks and texts customers can’t change by themselves? That is so boring! So I decided to change the situation. The plan was to use simple tools that are near at hand. Various digital screens are good, but they are expensive and require some special experience. Since I chose objects each ordinary person has: a bunch of buttons and a skein of bright thread. The concept BUTTONS+LETTERS was born. All you need is to put all buttons in a grid (10×10 buttons) sewing each of them very carefully. Then you have to take a snippet of the thread and reel it on the buttons creating letters or simple images. Voilà!

The new concept, created by me. I wonder that it would be great if we can use dust jackets and bookmarks together to create a unique image of a paper book. This idea can help to expand book’s space
Update: There is a real life example of the using of the JACKETS+BOOKMARKS. I’ve designed a cover art for the book Swiss Life: 30 Things I Wish I’d Known, written by american writer Chantal Panozzo. The book is using special bookmarks as promotional materials. You can find more details at the project’s page.
