Web design is one of my favorite disciplines right up there with building identity systems. This PBS Off Book series video touches on the world of HTML and CSS, grid layouts within web pages, the importance of understanding the user experience and the rise of mobile platform. It’s an educational 7 minutes if you have [...]
As a designer a logo project is probably one of the hardest, but most exciting pieces of work you can do on for a new or existing brand. It’s often the first thing a person comes across when they interact with the product/service. I love this PBS Art special on logo design. It really speaks [...]
I fell off the grid for the last couple of weeks due to an enormous amount of work I’ve had to complete to get my design portfolio finished before graduation this week. This video summed up the things I was doing (and still find myself doing) at many intervals. I’m approaching the finish line however [...]
This video by Pentagram in celebration of their 40 year anniversary is absolutely hilarious! Pentagram is one of my favorite agencies and videos like this are a great reminder as to why they’re one of the top design firms in the world. Complex also did a write-up on some of the posters the company did in [...]
Thoughts on failure by Milton Glaser, design master and the genius behind the I ♥ NY logo, Brooklyn Brewery logo and co-founder of New York Magazine. Really great video.
I hope you all had a great weekend! I’m still recovering from it myself. Anyway, I stumbled across this fantastic typographic video by Brazilian director, designer and animator Ariel Costa using the free font Chunk Five. With the accompanying music by Marcelo Baldin it’s lively, energetic and fun.
I’m a big fan of LEGO art (see past sculpture post here and Tupac portrait here), so I was really happy to see this new PBS Off Book series video on this topic. Most of us have fond memories of putting these toys together as kids. It’s so exciting to see these artists take this form to a whole new [...]
“Never confuse a single defeat with a final defeat” -F. Scott Fitzgerald My classmate sent me this awesome video and I felt compelled to share it here. It seems that graphic design frustrations are shared by many. This brings me to a book that I just ordered from Amazon. It’s called How To Be a [...]
Another awesome video from PBS’ Off Book series was released last week. A bit about The Art of Film & TV Title Design from PBS: The credits are either the first or the last thing we see when we watch a great film or TV show, but the complexity and artistry of title design is rarely discussed. [...]
I really enjoy stumbling upon dope street art. This PBS special features the work of Olek, a sculptor whose medium is crochet, and Swoon, a mixed media artist. Each talks about what this form of art means to them. I think the part at the end with the 6 forms of street art that (probably) won’t [...]
