Trends often not recommended to follow because they fade, but what if you stick to them and they make a comeback? Here's a neat video of the 15 trends in graphic design for 2018! Enjoy!
Today I received the long, anticipated book that I put together back in April. This book is a compilation of personal readings from students, faculty, staff and friends of the school I work at. This was the largest multi-page document I've ever done with over 400 pages! The cover is a close up of the stained glass windows located in the church where these readings take place. The project was long and exhausting, but the final product came out fantastic, so I'm really happy.
Sometimes we don't get the most exciting projects (to each their own), or products to sell, but there are always ways to make it work. I love this scene from Mad Men, where Don Draper uses emotion to take a product and turn it into an bag full of memories!
I recently entered a t-shirt design contest for District 45, which is New England's Zumba® district. If you're not familiar with Zumba®, it is a dance and fitness program that combines music and rhythms from all over the world. Of course to most people, Zumba® is a "dance class" but it's not! but I won't get into that argument :) Fitness components are added so you can get a fun cardio work out!
Every year, among many other worldwide events, they have the Zumba® Convention, in which thousands on instructors from all over the world gather, and learn new routines, hear about the latest news. It's basically a fitness conference, with a party vibe. With that being said, every district likes to represent themselves by making t-shirts. I decided to submit a few designs and this is the one that won. I wanted to emphasize that New England is on fire!!!!
I recently stumbled upon this mini article that talks about the importance of lighting in the office. Especially if you're a designer! In my career, I've had several office arrangements with different lighting, and now that I think about it, the more "natural" lighting I had, the better, and happier I was. I didn't think much of it at the time, but it's time to turn on the lights :) Check out the full article.
