Hooray for 3D!

Coming is a design studio located in Belguim. I found them a while ago while looking for installation inspirations for my foundations computer class, and I've been visiting their website ever since!  I love the way they incorporate 3D work in their design. When I look through their portfolio and see something that looks purely digital and then find out that they had actually made it, I am very surprised and in awe.  I feel making something—to the extent that they do—establishes a connection between a designer and their work. They really spend time physically with their objects rather than staring at a screen which is why I feel their designs are so considered and very well done. I'm not saying that designers who do purely 2D design don't spend time with their work or make unconsidered designs, I just feel that there is a slight difference. Sort of like type setting before computers and typesetting now.  As Prof. Holohan mentioned, mistakes were simply not made when setting type by hand simply because of the amount of time it would take to correct it. By looking at their designs, I am reminded that a graphic designer does not have to purely rely on Illustrator or Photoshop to create.

Here are some of their works:

I absolutely love this BC design!
