“Don’t judge a book by it’s cover”

We’ve all heard the old saying “Don’t judge a book by its cover”, but we all do it. However strongly you want to disagree, book covers do matter. Of course the content of the book matters a lot more and a book with an ugly cover can have an amazing story, but the chances of that […]

The Marine Corp’s Logo

  The United Stares Marine Corps (USMC) owns the logo that portrays an eagle standing on the top of a globe and there is an anchor piercing through the globe. These symbols are a representation of something very important and they all have something in common: the marines are always ready and always faithful (semper […]

Sport Logo Design

  Sports. Some people enjoy it, some do not. Many types of sports exist. It is a huge industry worldwide. Since there is such a big demand for the sport’s franchise, sports teams and businesses that are in association with a sports team need designers to place their name and image out there in the […]

Books to be Business Savvy

The Client Isn’t Always Right

I hate it. I hate it when people talk about “just doing what the client wants.” How that’s a designer’s job. Maybe I hate the reality it implies, but I definitely hate the reality that mentality is creating. The more we say and abide by that phrase, the more everyone else believes that that’s all […]

Designers work for clients and they must be prepared to give the client what […]

Feminism in Design: Sex-Based Economic Inequality

If you know a woman or are a woman, you need to keep reading. Although the gender pay gap has narrowed in the last fifty years, it still persists today, and researchers maintain it won’t close until 2152. Women face a pay gap in nearly every occupation, and design is no exception. Even though women […]

Because Presentation Matters

As a designer, it may be necessary to have a loyal platform for offering products and services. These platforms are used to establish domain names, website templates, and other services. Known for their free hosting services, WordPress is one of the most popular platforms on the web. Another platform is Wix which offers similar features and customizable website […]

Hand in Hand

  Graphic design and photography both complement each other extremely well when they are combined. The main reason is because both fields require a “layout”. This means that both designers and photographers have to think out their “layouts” or artistic rules that are involved in creating their work. Design is defined as problem-solving and creativity. […]

Hi, I’m A Designer and I am NOT A Perfectionist

Through out my education as a graphic design student, I have heard professors and colleagues tell me that “graphic designers need to be perfectionists.” I am the complete opposite of a perfectionist and have no desire to become one. I like messy designs as much as I like looking at clean ones. I consistently fail […]
