Drone Safety by Bianca Fuchs

We here at Wild Rabbit Productions - yes, I'll finally admit I actually really create most of my design work for them/us and I also am an investor in the company. I'm ecstatic to see the UAV industry grow as fast as it is – Having that said... I believe it is very important to share some FAA knowledge with the public.

Safety first when operating drones! And we've seen quite a few no no's in the news, as well as have been asked quite a lot of questions regarding the law; which plainly put, means: not everyone is really aware of what you can and can't do.

As an FAA exempt company we have to abide by a few regulations to allow us to legally operate on US soil commercially. Different countries have different regulations! To help understand what you are/aren't allowed to do, I've put together some visually stimulating eye candy with FAA facts!

Check out my tumblr for full details or just take a glimpse at some of the design I created for Wild Rabbit Aerial Productions based out of Los Angeles.

Omigosh I HAZ VIDEOS! by Bianca Fuchs

Soooo I've been a doodadling and being all incredi-ADD have way too many projects on-going at the same time. Nonetheless I have really been wanting to create an edit for the Wild Rabbits, and after seeing Kevan create a quick 30s in 3 hours... I MUST HAZ OBTAIN CREATOR SKILLZ! 

And because I don't want to pay exorbitant amounts of money for final cut, nor the patience for aftereffects, iMovie had to do. And guess what. I love iMovie... 

Check out my WRP 2015 Reel Mashup here

 

And then check out the rough draft / not color graded / behind the scenes edit I created for WRP while we were out in the Lancaster desert prison shooting for the Los Angeles Sheriff's Department.  YAAAY!


Cool Stuff October! by Bianca Fuchs

People make stuff, and a lot of it is pretty impressive. Like this site tools.tools, it's an audio-visual instrument of two second animated loops in homage to the digital toolset of the designer. So click away n turn up the sound!

 

And then I found this awesome video on Vimeo: Bootleg Bart video, to Freeway and Girl Talk's 'Suicide' remix feat ASAP Ferg by Lisa Ramsey (a very talented illustrator and motion artist http://misslisaramsey.com/).

Don't waste beer and other things that made men's grooming by Bianca Fuchs

I've been spending some notable time looking at men's grooming/shopping sites and products. Research, research, research. And even though I'm female, haven't tested any of these products, and might not have a personal need for these products (my bf does), I still feel like you should see what's out there. Because I'm a designer and a sucker for awesome products, social impact, sustainability, fantastic packaging and epic branding...

Here's a list of sites I would highly recommend. 

For the grooming man, or bearded one:

 

 
 

Shave with Valor is an Aussie based, eco-aware company with a passion for organic, natural soaps. They started out at local markets to supply a growing demand for simple, organic and additive free skin and shaving care. http://shavewithvalor.com/

 
 
 

Damn Handsome Grooming Co. is an American based company, creating soap, skin and hair care out of beer brewing byproducts. Not only does this make them rather sustainable, they also donate to charities, giving children in impoverished nations soap to prevent a variety of disease. Their mission is: To provide men with damn good, hardworking products to help them look a just little more dapper, feel a hell of a lot more manly AND to create a company that is as sustainable as it is beneficial. http://www.damnhandsomegroomingco.com/

 
 
 

Apothecary87 is a UK based brand, started by a former bartender who realized that people weren't taking him quite as seriously as a clean shaven man. He noticed he looked a lot younger, thus deciding it was time to grow out a beard. And beards do need a bit of care if you're working in the service industry. After testing and trying various "girly" smelling products, it was time to start making "manly" smelling beard care. A87 was born. They provide men with a few lifestyle items and a collection of beard/stache care products. Join their #themanclub, and get featured on their (LADIES, and guys :) , seriously hours of bearded handsomes) well curated insta or tumblr. http://www.apothecary87.co.uk/

 
 
 

Fort Amsterdam Hand Poured Beard Oil is located in NY and has a collection of beard care products, with a customer satisfaction guarantee. http://beardgroomingoil.com/

 
 
 

Beardlife is another Australian based company with world wide shipping. They offer a variety of beard care oils, conditioners, shampoos and brushes. As well as "aphrodisiac infused" beard oil... not sure about that. But hey, if it works. They, too, have a neat insta. http://beardlife.com/

 
 
 

Maestro's Classic (turn off the music on site) makes beard butter, and sulfate free bead conditioner and shampoo, (not quite sure from where). But they do seem to be in barber shops across the globe. http://www.maestrosclassic.com/

 
 
 

BeardBrand is a Washington based company "tired of beards being left to kitschy, cheap products. [They] felt these items are the reason many people think that beards are a fad. Beardbrand wants to bring high quality products for beardsmen." But not just that, they want to change the way society still views bearded men, for example leaving out connotations such as "clean-shaven" to beardless, and challenging organizations hat require men to shave. http://www.beardbrand.com/

 
 
 

Huckberry is an overall, everything, gorgeously designed, subscription based man store, with products ranging from clothing, to grooming, home, outdoor gear and more. They also sport a very interesting journal/blog with great photography and articles, like how to make your own provisions. Love this site and the products they have. https://huckberry.com/#.

 
 
 

MTailor is in app that claims it can measure you more accurately than an actual (by 20%)  tailor via your device in under 5 minutes. You can then browse through a selection of premium fabrics to get your shirt tailored to your body. Last time I checked they had an intro price of $65 USD per shirt. And free shipping! https://www.mtailor.com/#YMud8b:Oju

 
 
 

Finch Goods is an online store dedicated to making men's shopping easier and their wardrobes snazzier. From their site: "You’re busy. We know. You don’t have time to trek the globe, looking for the perfect scotch-soaked toothpicks. And that’s why at Finch Goods Co., we keep ourselves busy curating a well-edited and researched collection of men’s fashion finishings and lifestyle products that we know you’ll appreciate." http://finchgoods.com/

 

Trumaker, a SF based company, is the analog version to MTailor. Should you prefer a human touch, they actually have a local tailor come and visit your place to get your measurements, which are inputted into their online store after you happily receive your first shirt. This allows you to then easily shop their online selection, receiving a shirt that perfectly fits you. https://trumaker.com/

Neat Phhhoto App by Bianca Fuchs

This is pretty cool. PHHHOTO has an app available for download as well as offer a photobooth to created animated images/mini gifs at your event to share across social media. Great video ad as a well. Take a look here.

The McLaren F1 User Manual by Bianca Fuchs

I found this amazing article on subtraction.com! Khoi posted a great short interview on McLaren Design Operations Manager Mark Roberts talking about the design and details that went into the making of this hand illustrated manual, which has now become a collector's piece with only 200 ever being printed. I love the usage of "crashtest dummies" instead of people, always keeping emphasis on the car. 

If you love F1, you can find collector's memorabilia here at collectorstudio.com.

 

And if you're looking for some 3d F1 model files you can find them on Turbosquid.
