Yee-Haw!

We had Yee-Haw Industries’ lecture earlier this semester and recently I found myself buying several Yee-Haw prints and stationary for Christmas gifts. Their series of cowboy dressed guitar playing beavers, owls, squirrels, and foxes are so childlike and joyous. I had been questioning the value of letterpress for a while. Letterpress is effort taking and […]

Tutorial blog

I have found really awesome tutrial posting blog to share. Tutorial Outpost is the name of that website that people gathered and classified all the aritcles about the tutorials with easy to check out categories. There are categories such as ‘3D studio max,’ ‘Flash,’ ‘HTML/CSS,’ ‘Photoshop,’ and ‘illustrator.’ This blog includes many good articles with great samples and pictures that is really […]

Mad Men Type

I stumbled upon this article the other day and found it really interesting and slightly amusing. The article covers the AMC hit show Mad Men and the typography within it. The show is set and centered around an advertising agency. This means that they would be especially familiar and concerned with typefaces. Secondly, it is […]

The Futura

Futura has quickly become my most recent favorite typeface. I decided to use it for my magazine redesign this semester. I wanted it to be the type used for the magazine’s logo as well as the headers inside. I liked it because it feels modern, but also kind of retro and classy. After I chose […]

Etsy

Etsy is a wonderful site for creative buyers and sellers! If you haven’t heard of it before, it is a community for selling and buying crafts and creations. Once you join, the site will provide you a shop and you can upload pictures of your items! It is sort of like eBay, but more creative […]

High Resolution Images

This semester I took Editorial Design. As many of you probably know, all the students redesign a magazine of their choice during the semester. We need a lot of text and images for this project. We also have to have ads to fill up space and also make it look more realistic (in my opinion). […]

David Carson: Accidental “Father”

When you do a good ‘ole Google search for “Most Famous Graphic Designers” one name repeatedly pops up: David Carson. In fact, his wikipedia page automatically pops up fifth on the list. That’s pretty crazy! Personally, I was not familiar with Carson’s work until a few years ago when I researched him for a typography […]

Google Docs Clip

Google Docs ” the most awesome 450 page presentation ever” looks great. I didn’t even know there was such thing Google Docs but i will have t0 use it next semester. not only is this rally entertaining but i wonder how people come up with this kind of ideas?…so, producers animated the whole clip only by using […]

Drawing vs Design

Last year I took Drawing II during the fall semester and in the Spring I took Graphic Design Methods and Principles (AVT 311). I feel like I did some of my best work in 311 and I think that some of that can be attributed to the fact that I kept sketching and drawing a […]

Google Logos

I don’t know how many of you have noticed that google logo keeps changing for any special days. I really enjoy and love to watch their special designed logos. Sometimes it is un recognizable the word “google” but I think it is modified with full of humourous and sparkling ideas. As google is world widely popular and famous […]
