Creativity is controversial, with some believing the skill can be taught and developed while others believe it is a trait you are born with. Whichever approach is correct, a conducive and creative environment is essential to nurture ideas and allow ideas to flow from creative individuals. However, there are a number of practices which can be adopted to actively encourage creativity and innovation in your workplace.
In the past couple of weeks they worked hard to prepare a huge Christmas bundle stuffed only with top-quality resources, most of them unreleased or brand-new products! But that wasn’t enough. InkyDeals wanted to take it even further and let you pick your own present. That’s how this Colossal Bundle came up, valued at an incredible $9,009 and stuffed with more than 16 GB of top-of-the line resources!
Typography can be defined as the art and science of arranging words on a page. This is, of course, true, but completely insufficient in order to understand the complex subtleties of the field, as is always the case with short definitions. Rather than deal with this short and insufficient definition, let’s take a look at what typography does. It sets words on a page. This is true of all writing. Therefore, all writing is typography. But typography does so much more than that. Good type can, like inflexions of the voice and body language, communicate so much more than the mere words it contains.
When building web pages, designers usually focus on the things that you can see in the design, what they perceive as active elements: fonts, colors, images, text, menus and so on. Unfortunately, white space is not usually perceived as one of these elements. And that’s really a shame, because white space is one of the most useful weapons you have in your web design arsenal.
If you work in web design, you know perfectly well that your work is a lot easier when you’ve got a fresh supply of design resources and design inspiration to get you through the day. That’s why freebies are so important. No matter what you’re working on, odds are you can find exactly what you need to get started somewhere online so you don’t have to do a lot of extra work.
In order to have a great design, you need to have great typography. That is a fact. Different fonts say different things about the copy that they’re showcasing: imagine reading an obituary written in Comic Sans MS – that’s just flat out ridiculous and kind of sad (but, unfortunately, not the kind of sad the text was going for). Of course, Comic Sans is kind of a joke in the design industry by now, but the point remains the same: the font you choose can add to the impact of your copy, but it can also subtract from it.
Everyone wants to be more creative. No matter what for, whether it’s your job that requires it or you just think being creative makes you a better person, creativity is an issue that’s been discussed quite a lot in the past century. The content around us has expanded and diversified so much that it can sometimes be overwhelming. Sometimes the only thought that comes to mind is “What could I possibly do, say or make something in any way relevant without it being a copy of things someone has already done?”
They say a picture is worth a thousand words. That may very well be true. Your blog, no matter how compelling the content you write, needs photos. They’re an excellent way to get the point across, not to mention the fact that a well-inserted photo gives the reader a pause from the writing and makes the article easier to read than a big old wall of text.
Running a business can be described as a never-ending challenge. There’s always something to be done or some problem to be solved. Running an online business is even harder. You need to use the various tools and apps that were designed to solve the most common business problems, be they related to communication and collaboration, billing and accounting or calendars and scheduling.
