With the blog redesign, we had introduced two new weekly posts, one titled “Featured Craftsman” and one called “Emerging Designer.” After hearing back from you guys in the last survey, we realized our folly. Both of those two posts had something very important in common: we like what these people who design and work with their hands are doing. Therefore, as we aim only to please, we are combing those posts into the very convenient and aptly named “We Like What They Do” (we’ll abbreviate it to WLWTD). Who are we liking today? James Hargraves.
First spotted on MoCo Loco, James Hargraves. We just can’t get enough of computer-aided design lately. There’s something so futuristic about it for sure (I mean, computer’s are doing a lot of work). But the shapes and patterns that can be created by fancy algorithms and numbers are oddly similar to the amazingly delicate patterns seen in nature. That’s some serious symmetry to life being created.
From his website: “James Hargraves is a multidisciplinary designer based in Melbourne. Having trained in Mechanical Engineering & later in Industrial Design, his work explores the interplay of digital design and fabrication techniques.” More from him on his website.
