Is it me, or is most design becoming interactive?

Whether we know it or not, graphic design is pretty much everywhere we turn. Ads, food product containers and boxes, posters, and even official boring documents that we need to fill out. But lately I’ve noticed all these forms of design slowly becoming interactive in one way or another. The other day at the mall […]

One of my favorite artists

I would like to share here one of my favorite artists, Daniel Merriam. I have had the chance to see some of his artwork in person, and that was the first time I saw it and fell in love with it. Daniel Merriam has a different aesthetic, I think his work constitutes a genre in itself. It […]

Doll Face

Doll Face by Andy Huang Here is a cool animation done by a filmmaker and artist Andrew Thomas Huang. I thought it was a very interesting video. The short film shows a battle that many young girls and boys have on appearances. Many teenagers think they should look like many of the stars on TV or […]

Plain Air Painter

  Plain air painters are those that take pleasure in the act of painting outdoors, and paint the landscape that surrounds them. Many plain air painters will create and capture amazing scenery, especially places that many have not visited before. I’m sure it was quite popular in the times where we lacked air transportation such […]

Definition of Art?

…It’s a very broad discussion, actually, but I wanted to share one definition that I ran into when I was reading Understanding Comics by Scott McCloud. (You can find a critique of his work here.) Scott McCloud says: “Art, as I see it, is any human activity which doesn’t grow out of either of our species’ two […]

Love Typography?

Typography was one of the best classes I’d ever taken. Recently I did a quick research on a professional organization for Typography and found this site: http://www.istd.org.uk/ They are the “International Society of Typographic Designers.” Basically, if you are considering making a living by designing typefaces (or just have nightmares of Comic Sans), you should […]

Art e-books

I was making some research tonight for my photography assignment. My assignment requires that I have one resource that is a book. Now, I understand that we need to do some good research for our assignments. But I have so little time that I don’t want my resting time to be library-time or bookstore-time. So […]

This is MySpace.

In the past two days I have seen Twitter, Facebook, and Tumblr blow up over MySpace. They have released a preview of their new website. It takes me back to middle school doing random surveys and changing my top friends every few days. From the preview video that they show (click here), it seems like […]

Traces

As we go about life, we leave traces behind, unknowingly and unaware. As we walk long the beach shore, through a snow path into the wilderness, or touch the foggy window of a taxicab going about our daily routine, we are always leaving our traces behind everywhere we go. With the exception of those that […]

Serif & Sans

The other day I came across the website Serif & Sans. Their work is minimal, but pretty fantastic. It seems like they do a wide variety of work. If you scroll down on their blog you can see the coffee company that they designed for (or click here). I really enjoyed how they incorporated Native […]
