History of graphic Design    I disappointed at the beginning when I had to take AVT 318 which is AVT 418 now. I thought it is unnecessary to study about things already have done thousand of years ago, while we have a completely different world to deal with today. As the semester was going I […]

The other day as I was browsing the internet, trying to learn a little more about designs, I came across the term “Sustainable Designs”.

Last Spring during the AIGA portfolio review event, one of the AIGA DC chapter members gave a speech about his experience now as a graphic designer. He talked about things that you have to develop as a student before you go out of school. I really liked his speech and I found it very effective, […]

Text Face

I remember it was last year when I first saw a face that was made completely out of just text. I was really taken aback at how well artist are able to create this images. I remember that I also tried to create one, but was not as successful. What I also liked about this […]
