When eHarmony was looking to partner with a company for a new creative angle for their 2010 “Love Begins Here” ad campaign, they looked no further than the unique technology and photo mosaic design of Picture Mosaics. eHarmony had the initial conceptual direction for a photo mosaic, however wanted Picture Mosaics to dig deep into their creativity and technology to produce something truly unique and special that would capture the campaign’s message and stay true to their branding.
I’ve seen a lot of buzz going around about the (hopefully) triumphant new chapter in the Star Wars saga. I have to say that I’ve been a huge fan since I was a kid (I even enjoy the prequels!). So I’m definitely excited to see this great story unfold even further. While there’s certainly no shortage of Star Wars fan art out there, these portrait mosaics by James Haggerty grabbed my attention right away. I must add that I’m a big mosaic fan, especially photo mosaics.
Simplicity and design go hand in hand, and what could be more simple than a thumb tack? Eric Daigh creates portrait mosaics using hundreds of thumbtacks. From a distance you see what appears to be a pixelated portrait; up close you see an abstract piece of art made of just a few colors. What’s striking about these hand-crafted portraits is they look like they were created digitally. This concept attracted me because I believe the most impacting pieces of art are the most unconventional. As an artist, the question “why didn’t I think of that?” smacks your forehead.
