Random Collective connects people of different disciplines (writers, directors, designers, photographers, coders, etc) to work on different projects together, have just completed a fresh web experience for the band Orba Squara. It’s a multimedia journey which allows fans to venture together with the band in a tour across the US, in the form of a 430 ft long lateral scroll stuffed with photos from the tour, music from the band’s new album, and a solid feel for design overall.

(In case you missed it, be sure to check out this tribute to Thriller that we featured about 6 months ago, commemorating the 26th anniversary of the launch of that iconic album that changed music forever.)
Marian Drew is true master of lighting. Her painterly photographs are clearly reference the still life’s of the Renaissance, with dead animals which she’s found by the roadside as protagonists. The beauty of her photographs allow viewers to be drawn into the work only to be reminded of the atrocities of humans beings against defenseless animals like those she photographs.
