Following the tragic death of David Hillman Curtis last month, the Hillman Curtis celebration benefit has been organised and curated by Gary Hustwit, Stefan Sagmeister, Ben Nabors, and Ben Wolf, with support from the School of Visual Arts. It will be a celebration of the life and work of Hillman Curtis, hosted by his friends, colleagues, and the subjects of his films.

Proceeds from the evening will benefit the PS29 Arts Fund, the Carroll Gardens elementary school attended by Jasper and Tess Curtis.

In 2008 WeOccupy asked 40+ creatives to create their own interpretation of a Cult, Classic or Obscure film poster from the past — whether it be a literal or abstract solution.

The result was ‘Now Showing’, an Art exhibition (London + Barcelona) paying homage to more than 70 years of film, through the form of prints, one off screen prints and sculptures. Contributors included: Paul Willoughby, Michael Gillette, Nathan Fox, Pietari Posti, Mario Hugo, HORT, James Joyce, Build and Hellovon to name a few.

4 years on and they are taking the posters down for good; after this week they will no longer be available to purchase. To help commemorate this, they are running a twitter competition all week. The lucky ‘Follower’ (@weoccupy) picked at random will get to pick any of the 26 posters here. The winner will be announced next week.

TO ENTER: simply tweet the following: .The ‘Now Showing’ alternative film posters will be gone next week. RT for a chance to win 1 of these 26 posters http://bit.ly/L1orIB #nsc

Overview

Six is an independent creative consultancy based in the UK, providing Design & Art Direction for brand, print and screen.
We concentrate on strong ideas, solid research, clear strategic thinking and attention to detail, and we choose our partners carefully in order to maintain the high standards of innovation and creative excellence that are central to our studio practice.

We are currently seeking to establish a relationship with an experienced front-end developer, either individual or small company, for collaboration on a range of web projects. Our eclectic client list offers diverse opportunities for expression, and we expect all our partners to approach this with the same energy and dedication as we do.

Working with Six as a front-end developer, you will become the interface through which our designs are realised. You will be an integral and vital part of the creative process, informing the project from concept to delivery, and working with our designers and art directors to create beautiful, usable interactive design.

Skills

• HTML
• CSS (SASS)
• Javascript / Jquery
• AJAX / JSON
• PHP / MYSQL
• Strong understanding of web standards / cross-browser compatibility

In addition, it is of vital importance that your eye for detail is as exacting as ours. You should be able to take a design from Photoshop / Illustrator and faithfully render the aesthetic as an interactive experience.

You should also have the initiative to take a proactive approach within a project — we consider the development stage of any project to be an integral part of the design process, and as such we rely on our development partners to take an active part.

As an external supplier, we also expect you to be experienced in putting together quotes and specifications on a project-by-project basis, as well as being available if necessary to attend pitches, briefings and meetings with prospective or current clients.

In return, we offer a long-term opportunity to work with good people on good projects, in an creatively charged environment designed to allow everyone involved to achieve their best. If this sounds like your kind of thing,

please contact: work@madebysix.com

You are welcome to follow us.

We would like to say a big thanks to everyone that linked up both the Blog and our New Site on Friday. Not sure what spurred off the big promo trail, but we’ve had an overwhelmingly positive response from the various posts. A massive thanks to Form Fifty Five, QBN, Computerlove, September Industry, Thinking For A Living, Change The Thought, Grafik Cache, Why We Rock, Visuelle for all their kind words.
