Today, I wanted to introduce you guys to Alberto Seveso, a graphic designer and illustrator from Italy. He is known for his unusual technique called “sperm shaping”, which basically represents mixing colorful vector with photos. He has created amazing designs for sonorous names such as Bacardi, ESPN Magazine and Playboy Magazine, has designed the packaging of Adobe Photoshop CS6 Extended and is internationally appreciated for his unique artistic style.
In the design community, creativity is probably the most sought after quality, having reached an ubiquitous state through the departments of design firms everywhere. So designers strive to show off their skills in the most unique ways, in order to stand out. To help you create your own attention-grabbing resume or just get inspired, I’ve put together an awesome collection of 20 C.V.s of designers and illustrators from all over the world.
I’ve put together for your viewing pleasure today a collection of cool celebrity fan artworks, basically vector illustrations and photo manipulations, to get your design inspiration going on these lazy summer days. Among our subjects are Jack Nicholson, the regretted Heath Ledger, Morgan Freeman, Rihanna, January Jones, Steve Carell, Johnny Depp, Helena Bonham Carter and many more.
8-bit art (also known as “pixel art”) is a term used to describe a style associated with 1980s-early 1990s video games. Let’s feast our eyes on 8-bit versions of some famous paintings, awesome fan made movie posters in pixel art, retro (and drunk and zombie-like) superheroes, artworks which combine traditional high resolution and pixel elements, a lot of cool 8-bit vector freebies and last but not least, a video tutorial on how to create pixel art in Illustrator.

As a designer, you’re constantly learning new things and improving your skills; so the hunt for premium design resources is always on. Some of the most sought after resources are design tutorials – there’s no such thing as knowing too much. So I’ve put together for today a showcase of 10 cool and useful video tutorials that will definitely enrich your vector skills.
I haven’t put together a collection of free design goodies for you guys in quite some time now, so I came up with this awesome showcase of web design resources. Icons are one of those details that can make or break that clean, seamless look that every webmaster strives for. So it’s advisable that you also direct your attention to these small “call to action” sets that can increase your site’s traffic and popularity, if chosen correctly.
Social bookmarking is an essential part of any online business, because it spreads relevant content related to your products or services throughout sites from your chosen niche. Today, we’re going to browse through a collection with 30 of the most relevant bookmarking websites for web and graphic design.
Let’s face it: there are a lot of bad landing pages out there. There are landing pages that bury the call to action beneath the fold, landing pages that rely on old, clunky design practices and pay no mind to the way users actually navigate a site, and landing pages that just leave us scratching our heads. The following 10 landing pages do not make any of these mistakes. Actually, they know full and well their role as a company’s first and most important opportunity to articulate the what, how, and why.
