Mark Weaver

The above are from Mark Weaver’s Make Something Cool Everyday project. I’ve seen a number of these types of projects, especially on Behance, and Mark consistently has some of the more impressive results. The top image is my favorite by far; drastic big/small differences in type always appeal to me when done well.

I’ve never really put my daily “coolness generation” skills to the test; I usually make something cool over a period of weeks or months. Once I have a visual aesthetic defined, I can churn out work pretty quick, but the development of this always takes at least a week. Maybe I should start my own ‘everyday cool’ project to speed up my workflow…

wow man! those are very cool….great type in all of those. I always thought it would be really liberating to do a project like this just because you could sort of throw a lot of stuff out and see what sticks without worrying too much because there’s always tomorrow.

Nice! These really work great as a series. Definitely cool.
And it’s a good idea to force yourself to make just something everyday and then call it ‘make something cool everyday’. I’m liking this!

Yeah is cranks it out. Always looking forward to the next project. Its cool to see when he drains an idea and moves on to a new look.

Completelly agree with you. Mark Weaver’s everday work is awsome. I’ve the intention to start a “Make Something cool every day” this whole july.
As I suppose, as well as me, you, being a student, won’t study on summer… So I welcome you to join my intention.

Greatings from BCN!

My favorite is the astrocat. It’s straight forward retrofuturistic awesomeness.

I’m not too sure about the other ones. They do look great, I like the reserved colors that are sexy at the same time in a naturalistic way. I don’t recognize any of those olde worlde gentlemen, physicists most likely.

This reminds me of a dialectic that the American physicist Steven Weinberg pointed to in an interview I read the other day.
He said that “a lot of people believe that inaccessible [science] is inevitably profound in its meaning”. But he also talks about the Einsteinian God and the solastic component of art.

So I guess in that sense Weaver’s work is all smoke and mirrors, but It looks great.
