Huhh-huhh-huhh! Väga vabandan kõigi-sõprade-inimeste ees keda olen unarusse jätnud viimastel nädalatel, kuid käsil oli mitu nii megasuurt projekti, et põhimõtteliselt magasin-närvitsesin-töötasin nonstop. Üks nendest sai eile kauni finaali Tallinn Fashion Weekil ehk siis Xenia Joost REBELLIONAIRES publiku lemmik! Hõissa-hurra. Minu roll selles tuusas loos oli algupäraselt mustrite ja illustratsioonide loojana, kuid kuna Xenial sattusid ette ootamatud tegutsemised Vietnamis, siis ulatasin abikäe ka kollektsiooni video & show loovjuhina. Eks ta pole kergemate killast töö, kuid vaikselt hakkab ärevus maabuma ja teadmine sellest, et kõik on hästi saabuma :)

Nagu näete on REBELLIONAIRES selline uniseks, unisize, megamugav, pehme, soe, nooruslik kaubamärk, leiab siit endale miskit nii musta kui roosa sõber. Räägiks pikemalt, aga täna omakorda Eesti Disainiauhindade jagamine kus meie firma Hmmm sai lausa 10 nominatsiooni, nii, et lähen nüüd selle üle põdema! Mic drop. Kalli.

My oh my I am so sorry that I haven’t been in touch with so many friends and colleagues for the past few weeks, I just had some accidental awesome shit to do & it ate me alive. One of the projects is now launched and it’s REBELLIONAIRES by Xenia Joost, also won the Audience Favorite award at the Tallinn Fashion Week 2017 last night! Woop! Anyways for the starters, I was very happy to have designed illustrations and fabric patterns for this collection, but as lovely Xenia had some accidental important unfinished business in Vietnam, I took on the helping out part with creative directing and styling the collection video & show itself. it’s not an easy job I’ll tell ya, but the realization of how good everything turned out is slowly kicking in :)

REBELLIONAIRES, as you can see, is a youthful, cozy, soft, warm, unisex, unisize brand. Lovers of black colors will find their stuff and the pink gang too. I’d tell you more about everything, but as my firm Hmmm is nominated for 10 design awards that take place tonight, I have to go and stress somewhere else. Mic drop. Hugs.

Tere-tulemast minu nobedate näppude valdusesse SGN8! Olles antud gadgetit üle nädala testinud, võtsin kokku peamised punktid mis mind selles võlusid ja proovisin mitte lähtuda tehnilistest aspektidest mis on niigi kõigile selged – jah ekraani kvaliteet on ulme hea, jah telefon on hullult kiire, jah jah jah igasugustele küsimustele aku vastupidavusest ja muust tõsisest. Mis mind aga enim huvitab on visuaalide telefoniga loomine ja seda enda fotode ning joonistuste näitel ka lahkan.
Welcome home my beloved new gadget, my SGN8! So I’ve been testing it for over a week now and I’ve put together some aspects that I really like, I tried not to point out the obvious technological facts like the awesome screen colours & resolution, or the battery life, or the speed of the device, it’s all as good as they say it is. Meaning my take on the Note is all about creating visuals, drawings & photography.

DRAWING

Samsung Galaxy Note 8 põhjas on väike nupuke mida vajutades hüppab telefoni kerest välja pliiats, olles Apple pencilit juba pool aastat kasutanud, tundus mulle, et s-pen ei jää tundlikkuses alla, ja kuigi on päris pisike, siis minu käes istub hästi. Olenevalt survest saab teha nii pakse kui peeneid jooni, seega ka kalligraafiat, lisaks saab kribada märkmeid mis muundavad ennast trükikirjaks (ka eesti keeles).

Antud kiire joonistus loodud äpiga Adobe Sketch, kasutades aluskihina sama telefoniga klõpsatud fotot (taimer režiimis, köögis nagu ikka) :)

In the bottom of the Galaxy Note 8 you will find a little button that will then reveal the s-pen, as an experienced apple pencil user I can say that this little guy has got some force! It sits well in my hand, the pressure sensors are on point, you can even create calligraphy, plus the phone reads your scribbles and translates them into typed text (also in other languages)!

This fast sketch was created in the Adobe Sketch, I used a timer photo of myself as the lower layer, in the kitchen, as usual :D

SELFIES

Liiga pikalt selfidel ei peatuks, kuid ütleks seda, et varasemas versioonis tegi Samsungi esikaamera veidi laiema nurgaga pilti ja seega läks ka nägu laiaks, nüüd nagu näha on proportsioonid moonutamata. Telefoni lisatud ka väga suur valik igasugu liikuvaid kiisukõrvu ja võimalusi end kaunimaks teha, mulle aga meeldib lihtsalt, et kaamera on väga hea.
Not to stick with the topic of selfies for too long, but one thing is interesting, on my previous Samsung the front cam had a pretty wide angle, meaning my face looked quite wide as well, now this problem is fixed and the proportions of your selfies look nice. The Note also has a bunch of cute animal ear animations and beauty filters, yet I simply enjoy the good photo quality.

WIDGETS

Mmmmm! Eks tehnikas nagu ka moes – kord on teemas minimalism ja et midagi ei saaks muuta, kord jälle väga isiklik lähenemine. Mina täitsa igatsesin seda aega kui folderitele sai oma ikoonikesi valida ja winamp oli kord nagu jääkamber või siis jukebox või, igastahes. Galaxy Note 8’l on piisavalt suur ekraan, et oleks mõtet koduekraanile seadistada sammulugeja või spotify controller, samuti on lai valik stiile ja teemasid kogu kujundusele. Minu lemmikuks muidugi see Adventure Time moodi tüüpidega maailm!
Tech is just like fashion, there are times for extra minimal layouts where you can’t move or change anything & there are periods when custom design makes a comeback. Remember the times when your winamp could look any way you wanted or you could customize your folder icons, something like that. Galaxy Note 8 has a big enough screen for widgets, which means you can track your health or have a spotify controller instead of regular app icons. There are also countless themes and as you can see my favorite is this Adventure Time creature looking world!

FOCUS

Päris lõpuni pole selle nädalaga fokuseerimisest ja Live Focus funktsioonist sotti saanud, kuid nagu näha vahel tuleb päris coolilt välja (fotode värvid töödeldud VSCO camiga). Erinevalt iphonest (pardon kui eksin) saab bokeh effekti udususe taset muuta tugevamaks ja nõrgemaks. Maksimum foto mõõt pikslites on 4032px ja võimalus teha ka RAW faile.
I haven’t figured out the Live Focus function perfectly yet, but some of my photos look pretty good with that bokeh effect (colors manipulated with VSCO cam). In comparsion to iphone (sorry if I’m wrong) you can modify the depth of the blurry backgrounds and make them softer or stronger. The maximum size of a photo is 4032px & you can shoot RAW files.

Niisiis minu kui kunstilise- ja loovjuhi tööd tegeva inimese jaoks on tegu väga kasuliku töövahendiga. Soovitan kindlasti hankida ka kaitseümbris – masin on päris libe, kuigi veekindlus ja vanni kaasa võtmine on jätkuvalt Samsungi teema, siis edge ekraani servad vajaksid veidi kaitset. Käisin läbi Euronicsist ja Yolost ja seejärel tellisin vajalikud kestad hoopis Ebayst ;)

See oli siis minu isiklik ülevaade ja arvamus, ilusat päeva jätku! :)

Conclusion. If you work as a creative & art director like I do, this is a very useful work tool. I suggest you get yourself a protective case, yep the phone is still waterproof & works perfectly in the bath, but you might want to be careful as it’s quite slippery and I personally would like to protect that edge screen. After visiting a couple of stores I simply ordered some cases from Ebay ;)

That was my opinion, you are allowed to have yours, have a nice day folks!

Päris pikalt tuli skrollida huh, aga mulle lihtsalt meeldisidki kõik Silveri fotod ja tahtsingi tuleviku-endale mälestuseks kõik üles laadida. Meie ees on uus Adidas Originals EQT, pildistatuna Silver Mikiveri poolt, jumestatuna Liisa-Chrislin Salehi poolt, stiliseerituna Kärt Hammeri poolt ja kantuna mingi naise poolt kelle juuksed kasvavad sentimeeter päevas.

Kuna ma tahan olla mitte ainult visuaalne vaid ka informatiivne, siis toon välja, et esmakordselt on antud Equipment tossude puhul käibel Boost tallad ja esmakordselt on leged kolm triipu pressitud otse talla vormi sisse. Teisi Equipment saadikuid (mõned neist juhtumisi mu lemmikud stiilikunnid tantsunaised) saab uurida Eesti Adi instagramist, väga tuusad filmile jäädvustatud fotod on, täitsa teine asi kui keerutada sada kaadrit sekundis, rohkem nagu vahakuju ja kui liigutad keerad kõik tuksi (loe: positiivne ärevus) :)

That’s a lot of scrolling youguys, sorry for that but I couldn’t decide wether to go with this or that photo so I took them all for future me to reflect back at. the new Adidas Originals EQT is in front of us, styled by Kärt Hammer, MUAH’d by Liisa-Chrislin Saleh & photographed by ever so talented Silver Mikiver.

As I’d like to be not only visual but also informative, let me type in a couple of words about EQT. For the first time, Boost was used in the sole of the EQT ADV and for the first time ever, adidas created a moulded boost sole to include the characteristic three stripes of the adidas EQT sole. To see some other awesome local adi ambassadors you can head to the Adidas Estonia instagram, those are some reaaally cool pics as they are taken on film and instead of swirl and pose like crazy we had to hold it together like wax figures, one shot and that’s it, amazing!
