Posted by Randee on Jul 3, 2013 in branding, business, Design, downloadables, inspiration

Finally! A resolution of a controversy which has split the web design world for more than two decades: the file format GIF (Graphic Interchange Format) is actually pronounced “jiff”. The issue was settled by none other than Steve Wilhite, who invented the format for Compuserv in the late 1980s. Steve made his pronouncement at the 2013 Webby Awards, where he was honored on the 25th anniversary of the invention of GIF. Read more…

Where, O fonts, are thy sting?

Posted by Randee on Jan 30, 2013 in branding, Design, Graphic design

There was a time when the study and practice of typography was a true science and art. Today, anyone can download fonts, make them bold, change the size of characters, and so on within seconds thanks to most software programs. With that comes a hodgepodge of type that doesn’t always accurately reflect a brand’s promise nor does it always work cohesively with the psychological reactions consumers have to it. Read more…

About this presentation

We all have an idea we’ve been meaning to execute on, but how can we really make it happen? In this highly original, all-ages talk, illustrator Rilla Alexander walks us through this classic creative struggle by sharing the story of Sozi – an adorable character who walks us through the arc of an idea. She daydreams, she procrastinates, she sets deadlines, she gets tempted by new ideas, she buckles down and works hard – and finally – she realizes “Her Idea.”

About Rilla Alexander

Rilla Alexander is an Australian-born Berlin-based designer and illustrator. Her cast of creatures dance across Madrid’s Museo del Prado’s ceramics and stationery products, populate Swiss Credit Cards for Cornér Bank and sleep on the walls of Hotel Fox in Copenhagen (where she replaced the bed with a tent).As a member of design collective Rinzen, she has published several books exploring the creative process. The felt-covered book Neighbourhoodfeatured the collaborative efforts of over 30 artists reworking and remaking hand-made toys in a sequence that stretched across the world.

Her all-ages picture book, Her Idea, was launched with an exhibition at Colette in Paris — and tells the tale of her alter-ego Sozi and her quest to make ideas happen.

Color – continued revisited.

Posted by Randee on Aug 11, 2012 in branding, Design, downloadables, inspiration, packaging

Summer’s last stand. As we watch the warm days by the pool and weekends on the beach wane, I hope you took a moment to take a look around and let your surroundings change you. Even just a little.

Because color is one of the main visual communicators, we associate feelings with colors. More so than any other element of design.
