Post it? Nature?

We live with nature. Nature plays a very big role in design development. People have drawn to design inspired by nature. People have figured out ways of dealing with the environment. Most innovative designs are determined by the environment. What we are seeing, hearing, experiencing at any moment is changing our concept. The first design […]

Learning My Type

. Out of all the classes I have taken at George Mason, Typography has shaped me the most as a designer. It was there that I learned to pay very close attention to detail when designing. I credit this not only to the course, but also the teacher. During the first few classes, I thought […]

20 Designs That Defined the Modern World

  I’d like to share an article “20 Designs that defined the modern world” by Stephen Bayley. Technological development is always offering new opportunities for innovative design. The bra (1910) – A masterpiece of packaging design Coca-Cola bottle (1915) – To create valuable commercial autonomy Ur-Leica camera (1923) – Technically exquisite Pavillon de l’Esprit Noureau […]

Photography is Art?

If your life is worth living, it’s worth recording.                   Tony Robbins The human memory is very fragile. The memory is indeed a function of time. One of the ways people like to record their memories is to take a lot of pictures. It can be an art. […]

Logo Quality

Does a brand’s quality come with the logo? This is a thought that has been in the back of my mind for a while now. Often, products will be judged by the logo or brand name. Considering that this is due to the reputations of other products, I would say this is fair; however, there […]

Politics & Design Evaluation

We couldn’t say that winning elections is all about having a good logo. As a graphic designer’s points of view, we can compare Hillary’s logo with Trump’s logo for US presidential campaign. According to Michael Bierut in an essay for Design Observer, he mentioned that the simple geometry of the H-plus-arrow wasn’t enough to represent […]

Printer Horror Story

One thing every graphic designer must know is the importance of the test print. Test printing is stressed by many design professors at George Mason. I was the student that believed that printer errors didn’t happen so frequently. I was a carefree design student, until it happened to me. Last spring. It was not only […]

Graphic Designer or Graphic Artist

Graphic Designer or Graphic Artist? That is the question. I am almost halfway done with my Junior year of college, and I am not sure which path to take. From a very early age, I have always known that I wanted to be called an “artist”. It wasn’t until high school that I decided to […]

The Best Lions in the History of Art

I went to National Gallery of Art in D.C. Painted by Peter Paul Rubens in 1615, Daniel in the Lions’ Den strikes my eyes as a realistic image of lions’ motion and Daniel’s facial expression. Measuring approximately 88 inches by 130 inches and painted with oil on canvas overwhelms my soul. The theme of Daniel […]

Visually Mental Illness

People perceive the world differently. How do people who have suffered mental illness perceive? How much do we understand their perception? How can we describe the emotional states? Italian illustrator Federico Babina represents their mental illness and pain through the shape of a house using lines. I’d like to share an article on our social […]
