IMDb is probably the best thing that ever happened to movie buffs. Now more than ever, you can get all the information you could possibly want about a movie, director, actor, producer, sound engineer etc. Big websites are always a hassle to maintain, and sometimes errors just happen. We are talking, of course, about the dreaded 404. But good design can make the experience of finding a broken or dead link enjoyable, and the people responsible for IMDb got the hang of this really well.
Graphic design, and, in fact, design in general, is an extremely interdisciplinary field. Designers draw their inspiration from many places and many fields, artistic and not. For one designer, their main inspiration source may be illustration and the rich tradition of painting and drawing in Western Culture, while for another design inspiration may come from architecture. To a third, the field they draw most of their creative energy from may be photography.

In an age where all the information you could possibly want seems to be a mere push of a button a way, conferences are a testament to how important social interaction is to us humans. We go to them to listen to and meet other professionals in our domain (or a domain we just happen to be interested in), and to learn and share new information, practices. Conferences are also working vacations; an opportunity to visit somewhere new, while also not feeling like you are slacking off from your job.
Making a product is just one phase in the process of making money. Depending on who you ask, it is either the hardest or the easiest part. You spend days, weeks, months, or even years designing or putting together a website template, a collection of stock photos, a web application security tool, a typography set, t-shirt logo or design, and the next step is selling your product, and that’s shops come in. In ye olde days, shops were family businesses and they sold what the owners were making.
Trade is one of the oldest activities known to man. At one point in human history, someone decided that he wanted more than what he was capable of growing himself, so how do you go about getting something that you are not making yourself? Trade, of course. If I have wheat, I can make bread. But bread is ever so uninteresting if it is not transformed into a sandwich, so how am I going to get meat for the sandwich? You guessed it: trade.
Ah, the landscape! For many of us, it’s the first thing we draw as children and it still holds its grip upon us when we grow up. Is it any surprise that many of the worlds’ greatest works of visual art are landscapes? Be they painted, drawn or photographed, landscapes hold a huge place in our cultural tableau. The landscape holds a certain mystique that is impossible to ignore. It’s like a calling. The same calling that once used to excite cartographers and explorers.
Art is, some might say, mankind’s most important achievement. We are one of the few creatures that can express thoughts, feelings and emotions in an abstract manner, and definitely the only one’s that can do it at such an incredible level. Even the most uncreative individual can draw a circle and a few lines to symbolize the sun, or some squiggly lines to represent a body of water.
Every now and again, everyone likes to relax, sit on the couch and watch a good TV show. We’re no different and we’re pretty sure neither are you. And what recent show can truly match up to Vince Gilligan’s wonderfully complex and absolutely gut-wrenching ‘Breaking Bad’? Ever since the show first started airing in 2008, ‘Breaking Bad’ has gathered a huge following and has inspired tons upon tons of dedicated artwork.
