Blanca Gomez Interview

Blanca is a Graphic Designer and Illustrator based in Madrid, Spain. You may remember her work as featured on Grain Edit’s on-going poster pick series.

I am originally from Madrid and that is where I currently reside. Tells us a bit about your art/design background. When I was little I would draw all day long like many kids do and my parents enrolled me in a painting academy. When it was time to head to college I wasn’t clear what I wanted to do with my life.

I continued my studies, but explored other alternatives like photography and film through my fourth year, which I spent in Milan. When did Cosas Minimas begin and how has it grown? Cosas Minimas got its start several years ago in a very curious way. What inspires you most? Blanca’s studio. Design Crush & Popsicles! - StumbleUpon.

There’s a little something for everyone: the foodies, the purists, the ones who prefer frozen yogurt, the ones who prefer a little alcohol, everyone. Tweny-five options to be exact.

Prototyping is the process

They'll often look something like this: UnderstandObserveIdeatePrototypeTest... and cycle back to Step 1 We're all familiar with cooking manuals, and this one feels not unlike a good recipe for chocolate chip cookies... first this, then that, and then do this. Easy, safe, predictable, comfortable. Except, that's not the way designing really happens. I think we can do better than that.

A wise colleague recently corrected me on all of this. Exactly. We prototype all the time. Art Car With Teeth - Photo by Scott London. The Design Blog. New Condoms. One of the images we posted has been deleted in accordance with a lawful request.

TetraBox Light by Ed Chew. Liquid to Light Designer Ed Chew takes a green step in the right direction with the TetraBox lamp, a light object made from discarded drink packets that would have otherwise ended up in landfills already packed to the brim.

TetraBox Light by Ed Chew

The design is achieved by unfolding the packets and refolding them into hexagonal and pentagonal sections that are then pieced together to form a geodesic sphere or any other desired shape. Here, the Epcot-like ball makes an attractive overhead light and casts an impressive web of shadows and shapes on the surrounding space. Designer: Ed Chew. Create – wall art printable template.

Instead I used a piece of Styrofoam from a box we received last week. When I saw it a knew it was perfect for this project =] And instead of painting or covering it with fabric (my first idea) I decided to just go the Decoupage route with hot pink tissue paper. It ends up being so light! I just double tape mine to the wall and it works like a charm! **The download is a PDF format file, so you will need to have Abobe Reader installed on your PC or MAC.

Inspiration from the founder of Twitter

That is impressive. I have to believe his success in forming and running these two highly successful and innovative companies must be a testament to great time management skills. Recently featured in Fast Company’s March issue highlighting the World’s 50 Most Innovative Companies, he explained his schedule: “All my days are themed. As a consultant, I have been recommending this strategy for years to my clients and I was thrilled to hear its success reinforced by a leading executive. One portion of Dorsey’s schedule that I found less inspirational is “Sundays are for strategy, and a lot of job interviews.” Emily has consulted with design firms and in-house corporate creative departments for over twenty years.

Full Spectrum Lighting. Soren Petersen: Saving the World One Art Poster at a Time. Art is a powerful emotional tool for creating awareness and fostering a commitment to change the world, even if each print makes just a small dent. Think Uncle Sam's "I Want You For The U.S. Army," Apple's "Think Different" and the "Wonderful Copenhagen" poster with a police officer helping a mother duck across the street with her small ducklings.

If you want to disseminate information quickly and engage people, thought-provoking art posters are an effective medium. The "Save The Alps" poster, designed by Per Arnoldi, the Danish designer, artist, and TV and radio host is one such encouraging story. The "Save The Alps" story illustrates how two men engaged the financial elite and made an important and visible difference in a mountain world. At the World Economic Forum's meeting in Davos, Switzerland, 1990, Prince Sadruddin Aga Khan, then president of the Bellerive Foundation, solicited Arnoldi to create a limited series art poster to elicit funding for saving the Alps.

Gallery. DOMO-A. 12 Useful and Free Downloadable Web Design Books. There are a multitude of books (whether in digital format or print) that cover every possible aspect of web design, each one is unique and offers a personalized opportunity for the author to both educate, inspire, and guide the reader through there knowledge. In this post rather than offer all of my favorite web design books, I have listed 12 books that I have either downloaded and read (or at least scanned through), or I have bookmarked with the whole-hearted intention of eventually reading it (Ruby Best Practices), and the best thing of all?

All of these books are completely FREE, in digital format anyway (PDF or HTML). I have not offered a critique of each book, as I feel that would not be fair on the author. If someone spends so much of their valuable time (in some cases months and months) and writes an entire book on web design, in my eyes they deserve only praise and appreciation. I hope you find these books useful. The Elements of Typographic Style Applied to the Web (HTML) Escola Superior de Artes e Design de Caldas da Rainha.
