The FIFA World Cup tournament, hosted this year in Brazil, turns 84 years old. 32 teams will head to the South American country to play matches in Brazil’s 12 new or redesigned venues. Elanders UK take a look at posters from each of the tournaments, some 84 years old and estimated to be worth between £15,000 and £20,000. The overall design of the early World Cup posters were relatively similar to one another, with the first major design change happening in 1982 when Spain hosted the World Cup.

Spain called upon Joan Miró, an artist from Catalan, to design the poster that consisted of Miró’s simplistic style combined with bright colors and playful shapes. A similar artistic design was created in 1994 for when the United States of America hosted the tournament. Let’s take a look at how this year's World Cup posters compare to the previous editions in terms of design and concept.

Hype 2.0 is a solid WYSIWYG tool for HTML5 animation and interactive graphics.

When I made the transition from print designer to web producer in January, I wanted to make my graphic designing skills with me., my day job, utilizes HTML5 to make the site desktop- and mobile-friendly and steers clear of Flash. While I knew some coding, I didn't know enough to create some of the elaborate interactive projects that other newspapers have done, such as the New York Times' Snow Fall and reshaping New York projects. In addition to custom components, the staff utilized jQuery and HTML5. Nothing beats a good, solid foundation in writing code, but as someone making the transition from designing full-time in InDesign, I wanted to work with a WYSIWYG editor.

Adobe came out with Edge in 2011, but it requires a Creative Cloud subscription. Then there's Hype. Design If you've ever used Flash, Hype will look very familiar.

Create unique slideshows with ScatterShow for Mac. Apple's iPhoto app has some very basic slideshow features built in. Sure, you can apply the Ken Burns effect all day long, and even save your slideshows as screen savers. But if you are bored by iPhoto's simple dissolves, pans and wipes, it's time to check out ScatterShow (US$29.99) from Smith Micro.

The OS X app (which can be purchased as a download or in a physical box) allows the creation of some really unique arrangements and animations of slides, all of which can be set to music. The app includes a number of pre-set templates, or you can choose to start from scratch. Once you select a background from those provided by Smith Micro or have added your own, you're practically done making your slideshow. Each photo can be converted to black-and-white or retouched with a variety of filters. Once completed, your creation can be shared on Facebook, YouTube or on any HTML-enabled web page. Despite the sophistication of the app, I found it extremely easy to use. Screenshot FX will easily capture any image on your Mac. OS X has a built-in screen capture function, but it is pretty limited.

For example, Command-Shift-4 lets you define a rectangle to capture. Command-Shift-4 followed by the space bar will capture a window. You can also capture your entire desktop with Command-Shift-3, and other commands will save the result to your clipboard. Sometimes, those basic features are not enough. Apple bundles a utility called Grab with OS X that adds more features, but it still falls short for many users. Enter Screenshot FX, a very handy US$1.99 utility (on sale now) that lets you capture irregular objects by clicking on points and then dragging those points to create a curve. The app sits in your Menu Bar waiting to be invoked, or you can hit Command-Shift-5 to bring it up. Once your points are selected, you can modify them, or use the arrow keys on your keyboard to fine-tune the selection, either one or four pixels at a time. I tried the app with some difficult shapes, and it worked very well.
