A Call for Calm

I recently read an article about the forecasted pantone colors for next year continuing to “evolve toward an antidote to modern stresses…The Color of the Year, a blending of Serenity and Rose Quartz, demonstrates an inherent balance between a warmer embracing rose tone and the cooler tranquil blue, reflecting connection and wellness, order and peace, […]

Turning life to 2D

    The first time I was introduced to Alexa Meade’s work I was truly shocked. At first glance it just seems like it is your typical painting on a canvas. But it is actually a picture of a live scene that she has painted over. I love her way of painting and the content […]

Designer and Coder

You don’t have to know how to code to be a good designer. But if you do, I guarantee that you will be better than good as a designer and find more opportunities as time goes on. In an ideal world, every designer’s job is to solely brainstorm ideas and conceive mock-ups that would serve […]

Can Videogames be Considered Art?

Art is considered “the expression or application of human creative skill and imagination, typically in a visual form such as painting or sculpture, producing works to be appreciated primarily for their beauty or emotional power.” Though this can be a very controversial topic, I beg the question: can this be associated with videogames?

Is this advertisement offensive to designers?

    Recently, a company called South West Trains released a new campaign for their locomotive service.

We Give a Sh*t and We Do It for a Living

On Thursday, October 20th, Studio 424 gave a speech at visual voices. They opened with their tagline “We Give a Shit and We Do It for a Living.” Woah, bold words to say; this tagline could scare a client or two away. However, that’s the point. Jon Linton, Co-founder and technical director at Studio 424, […]

Bitform recently featured Yael Kanarek`s Kisses Kisses. This exhibit featured a lot of installations which brought into light the changing world due to digital network technology. A few of the piece included a table and chairs with computers on them and off to the side a TV attached. Behind the computers is a box type […]

As an art major I am inspired many artist, and Anna Gaskell is one of my favorite. Gaskell uses Narrative Photography, which is a style used to tell a story using photographs. She is quite well known for using this style, having a lot of of her work influenced by well known stories throughout literature. […]
