Designs Taken From Nature

It’s no secret that in the design world, many designs are made from inspiration. When thinking of where the inspiration came from, it’s easy to assume that the inspiration was made by a person. Though, sometimes, someone’s inspiration comes from an unexpected place. In nature, designs are everywhere just like in cities. Though, the designs […]

Makeup Packaging

Makeup has revolutionized from high end to affordable prices. How effective are makeup companies packaging?  I as a makeup consumer I personally do not look at their packaging that well. Lately I have been taking my time to look not only at the packaging but for their ingredients. Not for allergy reasons but if there […]

With the photo already taken, the smaller details go in; whether it be removing unwanted blemishes/details […]

Though kerning might seem like just a minute detail, good kerning can greatly enhance the quality of typography. When words are typed out with automatic spacing, there are often manual adjustments that need to be made. There […]

This will be the third time the team, since the their birth in 2003, will choose to do so. The last design being as recent as 2012, when the organization went for a Miami vice […]
