You are Not an Imposter

When you hear the words, “Imposter syndrome,” you’re probably thinking of something extreme, like some harsh disease or severe mental disorder. You’re thinking of people with way more problems than you, or maybe your mind went the complete opposite direction and were thinking of someone who can’t help stealing identities and impersonating people. Neither of […]

Motion Design: It’s Alive!

Good visual design requires consideration: clear visuals, a good color scheme, compositional balance, and all kinds of other details that bring the whole piece together. For posters, pamphlets, and other printed designs, you only need to worry about 2D design elements, but when it comes to Web Design, you can’t stop there. (I mean, you […]

Design team, Second White, recently released a product design for a new and innovating product. One of a kind, Water Bag 2 makes its way into the world.

Soulja Boy Cranked Copyright Infringement

I think it is safe to say we have all Crank That in our lives at least once or twice. Soulja Boy comes into the spotlight in 2019 under the circumstances the rapper may be facing criminal charges from Nintendo.

Effortless Design? There’s No Such Thing

When I first saw Ray Collins’ photographs of ocean waves, I was stunned. The presence of the water is almost palpable, rushing and thundering down yet glimmering like colored glass. But as beautiful as these final works are, we only get to see Collins’ best photos. A subject as ephemeral as the sea is hard to […]

Designers Change the World

Designers can change the world. Actually, they do so every day. No one thinks about the designer who decided on the shape of their Coke bottle, the person who wrote and formatted the back of the cereal box, or the team that worked to create an educational museum exhibit about birds.

The Importance of Staring at Your Work

Have you ever finished a design assignment at the last minute, only to realize later how bad it was? When I’m working on a design, I have tunnel vision and focus on a small area at a time. When I’m done, I’ve been staring at the design so long that I don’t see all the […]

Designing a New Way to Read: Interactive and Insta Novels

As an avid reader, I’m fascinated by the increasing number of people who read books on mobile devices. In China, for example, serialized e-books have become an explosive trend; the company China Literature has grown bigger than Amazon Kindle.
