Join the DSCO

November 2, 2015 2015年11月2日

VSCO® announced today the launch of DSCO, a free GIF­making app exclusively for iOS which uses VSCO’s superior imaging technology in the creation of short, looping GIFs. The introduction of GIFs to VSCO’s global platform adds a layer of fun, creative expression alongside photos, journals, and curation.


VSCO® 于今日发布了基于iOS平台的DSCO这款免费APP用于制作循环播放的短GIF动画,并承袭了VSCO出众的图像处理技术。在图片、日记和选编之外,GIF在VSCO全球平台上的引入,带来了一丝新趣味。

“DSCO broadens how our community can express themselves,” said VSCO co­founder and CEO Joel Flory. “We saw VSCO being used in unprecedented ways, and we wanted to ignite that playfulness and originality.” DSCO’s easy-­to­-use interface encourages simple shooting, editing, and sharing. People are able to choose from among a selection of VSCO’s most popular presets, or from exclusive DSCO presets developed in partnership with such cultural innovators as MTV, Opening Ceremony and others.


“DSCO扩展了我们社区的表达方式选择,”VSCO创始人兼CEO Joel Flory说: “目睹了VSCO以史无前例的方式被广泛使用之后,我们想点燃那种趣味性和原创性。”DSCO操作便捷的用户界面,使拍摄、编辑和分享得以简单实现。用户可以使用VSCO最受欢迎的一系列预设编辑;或者选择DSCO上,MTV、Opening Ceremony等文化革新者们参与合作开发的独家预设。

DSCOs integrate seamlessly into the VSCO platform with easy upload to the person’s profile, where they are visible and collectible directly through the VSCO mobile app and on web. Once uploaded, GIFs can be shared to Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Tumblr.


DSCO无缝接入VSCO平台:用户可以在DSCO上轻而易举上传图片至个人账号主页,随后在VSCO的手机端和电脑端均可查看、收藏所发布内容。已发布内容可被分享至Facebook, Instagram, Twitter和Tumblr。

“GIFs are an incredible form of creativity,” said Greg Lutze, VSCO co-­founder. “They can display a wide range of human emotion and perspectives. They are less about being cool, and more about being interesting, real and fun, which aligns with our vision for VSCO.”


“GIF动画是一种不可思议的创意表达形式,” VSCO联合创始人Greg Lutze说: “它可以广泛表现人类情感和观点。相比酷不酷的问题,它更多的是关乎有趣、真实和玩乐,这点正和我们对VSCO的憧憬是一致的。”

To celebrate the launch of the DSCO app, Neocha and VSCO have teamed up with some artists in Asia to create GIFs that were all shot with DSCO. Here is some of the work produced from those collaborations.


为庆祝DSCO的发布,Neocha与VSCO此番与部分亚洲艺术家倾情联手,创作一批完全用DSCO实现的GIF动画。以下是来自此次合作的部分作品。

The Art of Sky Goodies

November 1, 2015 2015年11月1日

Based in Mumbai, India, Sky Goodies was founded and is owned by Misha and Amit Gudibanda. The duo, who admit they are obsessed with art and design, produce pre-cut and pre-creased paper DIY kits, as well as other paper products such as notebooks, calendars, gift boxes, and decorative objects. The products are for all ages to play with and enjoy, while the colors, textures, and beautifully detailed patterns that decorate the surfaces of their products are infused with a slice of India.

Misha and Amit were first trained at the National Institute of Design (NID) in Ahmedabad, India, in graphic design and industrial design respectively.  While their other business – a design and technology services firm which they had also founded together, was doing well and growing dramatically, they yearned to do something that created something of more tangible value for people and would be fun for them to do too. Drawing inspiration from paper and hand-painted art – two things that they both love, Misha and Amit started to create their first paper DIY kits.

Using paper as the sole material, Sky Goodies makes art both approachable and affordable. Their DIY kits and colorful handmade gifts can evoke feelings of joy and love. Misha tells us that, like the name of their DIY collection, their goal is just to “make people happy”. Read below for more in our interview with Misha and Amit.

Neocha: You’ve said that the biggest inspiration for you is India, and that some of your products are “decorated in the style of Indian Pop Art and Street Art.” Could you tell us what this particular style means to you?

Sky Goodies: Traditionally film posters and walls were hand-painted. Indian street artists did not restrict themselves to realistic renditions and colors, but explored the full color palette in all its glory with intricate detail. An example: a film hero’s face would have shades of colour from blue to purple to skin tones and fluorescent hues, to create a unique colorful aesthetic. In similar ways matchboxes would have colorful graphics completely unrelated to the product being sold, and quite quirky and bizarre. They sometimes combine a viewpoint of an artist who is of rural origin with limited world view, interpreting new objects and situations in their own unique way. We love the colour, humour and madness in Indian street art, and also the level of detail. 

Neocha: What do you want people to know about India through your work?

Sky Goodies: India is so full of colour and wild contrasts, and of emotion; we want to bring the same happy colours and emotions to our work. The street art in India has a unique charm and was traditionally hand-painted on walls, vehicles, low-end products and public spaces. Now it is being replaced by stickers with far less aesthetic appeal. If this art was appreciated it may help keep it alive and bring some focus on street artists.  

Neocha: Which are the most popular pieces in the shop? And which are your favorite pieces? 

Sky Goodies: The most popular piece by far is the DIY Typewriter Calendar, and sell equally well in India and internationally. I have had customers shriek with delight on seeing them for the first time!

All of them are close to our heart as so much love has been put into them. Our favourites are the DIY Peace Tank pen holder and container, and the DIY typewriter calendar. The DIY Peace Tank is an army tank vandalized by art, carrying the message “Make Happy Not War”. It makes a pen holder, which symbolizes dialogue to dissolve differences. It also has three small boxes to store office clips, pins, rubber bands, and other small things. It is a slightly challenging DIY, but a treat for paper crafters.

Neocha: What do you have in the works for the near future?

Sky Goodies: A whole new collection of products of a different kind, both physical and digital, for parties and events. We are also working on a host of gifting accessories. All ultimately aim to make gifts more special and to make people happier during celebrations.
