Bostonian and Brooklyn-based creative director and designer Chris Rubino has been working on his project Something I Saw This Week  for almost 10 years and is now ready to show it to the world.  

For the past 500 consecutive weeks, Rubino has posted a singular photo to his tumblr of anything that has caught his eye and that he finds fascinating or interesting. His posts vary from ads to graffiti and street signs and even intriguing individuals. Thanks to digital photography and networks like Instagram, we’re constantly saturated with images, but this project aims to bring back the artistic and simple side to capturing moments.

“This project really is about past moments and places, fleeting feelings,” explains Rubino to PSFK. “I want viewers to see certain images and also remember why that place or somewhere similar is special to them.”

He is quick to identify the one photo that stands out the most to him.

“To choose one that I feel like symbolizes the general energy of the project, this wonderful dumpster I found in Denver with a Dali painting does it,” he tells PSFK. “The sadness, the humor, the general ridiculous quality of the whole scene.”

Rubino has been commissioned by a vast array of major brands including The New York Times, HONDA, NIKE, Ace Hotel and Samsung. He has also exhibited at some great spaces including the Calm & Punk Gallery, Tokyo and even Jean-Michel Basquiat’s final studio, and has also given lectures at Bowling Green State University and the Norwegian Design Festival.
