Steampunk is a huge cultural phenomenon, spanning books, movies and art. People love the look and “feel” of it, so much that it has sparked numerous conventions around the world. It’s easy to see why this is. The retro futuristic aesthetic is elegant and, to some extent, more easy to understand than regular science fiction premises, seeing as rather primitive technology is used to achieve great feats of engineering marvel, such as flight, time travel and deep sea exploration.
Needless to say, Twitter is a behemoth of a website, with over 500 million registered users, generating a huge amount of new content each day (over 340 million new tweets daily). Anyone who is anyone has a Twitter profile, and that makes it a great way to get information directly from the people you are interested in. As a designer, social networking is something you can really benefit from, as you have no doubt noticed.
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.
