The Roundup

05Jun13

The services of Grapevine Graphics have merited dividing the resources into specific divisions, we consider this rounding up our resourcesGrapevine Graphics was wrought from our need to create and to design. The NöizRoom grew into being as we helped capture the visual and sonic endeavors of others. Finally, Mo’zArt Productions had been born from the need for Grapevine Graphics to produce and distribute media productions.

Grid Iron Blues

Grid Iron Blues – Designing Space

It’s been lost in the shuffle, swept under the rug by the magic pill and the miracle of modern science. We’re talking about the loss of the base, the loss of the fundamentals, the loss of the basic building blocks. It’s happening everywhere, from family, education, and all of the arts. This is not something that’s new, or something that never was challenge, an obstacle.

One of the most important things we can learn about design is the use of space. When you place something on the page, the screen, or any other surface, placement is the key. A school of thought is to use a grid system, which is a tool akin to a ruler, it helps the designer place elements on the page with relation, that’s with relation and consideration to the page and the other elements on the page. 

Thoughtful and with purpose. 

You can look at the grid as the bones, the underlying scheme that holds everything together. Breaking the grid is as powerful as adhering to it. If a songwriter follows a structure he can break out of the structure, this could help  convey a different feeling such as happiness, sadness or even anger. Visual art works similarly, if you create a space and then intentionally break that space, for a reason which should always be thoughtful and with purpose.

It’s all relative, why bother creating a look and feel if it doesn’t communicate the message? Use the grid as a tool, learn about it, follow it and break it only when it makes sense. 

In the upcoming months, Grapevine Graphics will be introducing GrapeCourses, a series of design courses geared around the idea of thoughtful design. GrapeCourses will focus on practical philosophy and good practices in design

Spring 2013

01Apr13

Spring Has Spung
Winter tried to hold on as long as it could but it’s it’s grip is slowly slipping. The days are getting longer and warmer, and electricity’s in the air. Spring’s a time for renewal, a time for reinvention and the time for love to bloom. At Grapevine Graphics we’re keeping up with the begonia’s and flowing with the air of spring. This year, spring will be filled with lots a different projects, we’re looking forward to every moment.

The NöizRoom
Last May, the NöizRoom had the great pleasure of being asked to capture some footage for a independent movie by Alfredo Salvatore Arcilesi. The movie’s titled Canswer; it’s a grass-roots zombie movie being produced in Toronto, Canada. We were glad to help support this indie artist with this endeavor. Below are some of the excepts from the shoot. These behind-the-scenes clips were shot, cut and edited by us in the NöizRoom edit bay.

The NöizRoom was given another opportunity supporting the dead by capturing more footage at a special fundRAISING THE DEAD event at the iconic Monarch Tavern in the west-end of Toronto. We’ll be previewing that shortly.

Mo’zArt Productions
Don’t forget to keep an eye on the Grape Gourmet, Grapevine’s food-centric site, we’re releasing new recipes and sharing our adventures and experiences.

The Idles of March

In one instant it’s all we have, and in another, it’s gone; time. 

Grapevine Graphics took to the road on a small hiatus at the end of February but that didn’t mean we stopped working! In fact, during our travels, another Food Adventure has been put on the plate. The well anticipated spring is not Bly in the air, but also in our steps as we look forward to more and more creative projects. 

Mo’zArt Productions and the NöizRoom 

Yes, we’re still working hard on a few projects, but we are making headway. The Grape Gourmet Food Blog is getting more popular by the day, updates will be coming more frequently! Our editing bay in the NöizRoom is starting to heat up as well.
