Nando Costa: Defective

Wow, I’m doing some research for a project and I decided to swing by Nando Costa’s site. It’s been a while, and I noticed he posted a piece back in May called “Defective.”


Don’t know if this has already made the rounds, but it’s new to me. I really, really dig it.

This was part of the Getty Images Big Ideas contest this year…
Really great animation in this piece…

But, the winner of that contest is:


thats an unbelievable winner


“thats an unbelievable winner”

As in, “I can’t believe that won”?

I’m really not feeling that one. Like at all. I prefer Nando’s.


homeboys moving to portland. gonna own this town.


Perfect example of trying too hard to be more than what it is: interesting on the surface. Lacks substance. Keep up the nice work.


hahahahhahahahhahahahha at yotam.

what a perfect snob. damn.

actually i think this piece is full of meaning if you’ve ever heard of things like ‘symbols’. But i guess they don’t teach that at snob school.

it’s beautiful and a really really nice departure from the common fare. It’s good to see design as art every now and then. refreshing.


Justin, yes, as in “Its a travesty”


2e, I think the winner has some merrit, it’s a very nice narrative. Obviously the execution doesn’t highlight the latest design trends and advanced technical skills but that goes to show that content is king.


yes nice to see art its refreshing…
ah portland hey.. cool, but he already owns the world.


the winner kinda reminds me of ‘La Jetée’


hahahahaha… All these “design-pussies” and their “VOTE FOR ME NOW!!!!!!!”-link on their sites. too funny.

Anyway, nando is annoying as hell with his brazil-patriotism. Imagine if he was american. Beside his girlfriend or wife is a lot more talented than him.
