Interview with Bowtie’s creator and founder Gerardo Sámano Córdova.

"When digital animator and developer Gerardo Samano Cordova’s name came up for recognition as an “Innovative Individual,” I was curious to learn more about him as I have to admit that I was unfamiliar with his work. After spending only a minute with his portfolio site, I knew this guy had talent.

I then noticed that he recently started his own digital media company based in Mexico City called Bowtie, which provides website design, game development, animation, iPhone apps, and e-commerce infrastructure to its clients. His company site was recognized as the site of the day for The CSS Awards, and I’m pretty sure I know why.

Check out his work and you’ll also know why we were eager to track him down and feature him as this week’s Innovative Individual!

To keep up with Gerardo, follow his company on Twitter, and take a peak at this site and that site, his older two versions of his portfolio for further design inspiration.”

We love Favela Painting.

Favela Painting.

Jeroen Koolhas and Dre Urhahn are two artist from Netherlands who started working together in 2005.  In 2006, they started developing the idea of creating community-driven art interventions in Brazil. Their efforts yielded two murals which were painted in Vila Cruzeiro, Rio’s most notorious slum, in collaboration with local youth. After both murals were finished, they started their third stage of their project, ‘O Morro’.

The initial idea of the Favela Painting project was always to paint an entire hillside favela in the center of Rio, visible to all inhabitants and visitors. As the portuguese translation for ‘the hill’; ‘o morro’ is also used as a synonym for slum or favela, the artists chose to use this name for the third stage of the Favela Painting project. ‘O Morro’ started early in 2010 and was recently finished.
