An environment for creative collaboration is significant for enhancing human communication and expressive activities. We introduce Second Surface, a novel multi-user Augmented reality system that fosters a real-time interaction for user-generated contents on top of the physical environment. This interaction takes place in the physical surroundings of everyday objects such as trees or houses. Our system allows users to place three dimensional drawings, texts, and photos relative to such objects and share this expression with any other person who uses the same software at the same spot. Second Surface explores a vision that integrates collaborative virtual spaces into the physical space. Our system can provide an alternate reality that generates a playful and natural interaction in an everyday setup.
In order to present the speakers in the 5th International Congress of Typography a short piece of film was made for each one of them.
This video is a full recap of the 8 different pieces.
We wanted to translate their claim “Más allá de la tinta” (Beyond the ink), showing the contrast between the new use of typography and an old fashioned and physical world: Floating digital lead types in the old environment of a typographer’s workshop, fill with his vintage machines and tools.

The Olympic Flame, which has been seen by nearly 15 million people on its 70 day journey around the UK, and by a worldwide TV audience of around one billion people in the Opening Ceremony. The Cauldron is made up of 204 steel pipes and individually designed copper petals inscribed with the competing nation’s names.
At the end of the Games, each team will take their petal home and the London 2012 Cauldron will cease to exist – it is a representation of the extraordinary transitory community that is the coming together of the world’s community at the London Olympic Games.
Thomas Heatherwick, the designer of the London 2012 Olympic Cauldron, said: ‘There is the precedent of the 1948 Games of the cauldron set within the stadium, to one side with the spectators, and with the technology we now have that didn’t exist in 1948 it can be shared with everyone in the Olympic Park with screens. We felt that sharing it with the screens reinforced the intimacy within it, if it had been a huge beacon lifted up in the air it would have had to be bigger, and would have somehow not met the brief that we discussed with Danny Boyle of making something that was rooted in where the people are.’
Below is a reminder of a few of the beautiful projects Thomas has been involved in.
A future more beautiful? Architect Thomas Heatherwick shows five recent projects featuring ingenious bio-inspired designs. Some are remakes of the ordinary: a bus, a bridge, a power station … And one is an extraordinary pavilion, the Seed Cathedral, a celebration of growth and light.
In this video, we interview James Greenfield and Mike Alderson from the London-based studio ManVsMachine. Watch as they tell us about how they started, what sets them apart as a studio, and how they see the future of logo design changing.
