Creating an Interactive Portfolio with InDesign

While you can certainly still make interactive PDFs from InDesign, you can do so much more using the InDesign CS5 interactive features. 1 CREATE A NEW WEB DOCUMENTWe’re pretty used to creating InDesign documents for print in standard sizes such as Letter and A4. In this case, however, we’re going to the Web, so it’s best to start out with a document size that makes sense for a computer display. Choose File>New>Document to create a new document. For Intent select Web and for Page Size select 1024×768. 2 CHANGE PAPER COLOR TO BLACKI almost never change the paper color in InDesign because it doesn’t really affect the printed page. 3 CREATE NEW MASTER PAGE AND FRAMETo speed up production, let’s create a new master page.

Now we’re going to create a frame for the large images. 11 INTRO PAGEWe’ve done all the hard work now. - StumbleUpon. Think Invisible - Posters That Will Make You Think. About the author Hi, my name is Houke de Kwant.

"Pájaro enjaulado" Like Snowflakes, No Two Of These Complex Fractal Puzzles Are Completely Alike. Fotos del muro. We should.. The Book Surgeon (15 pieces)

Using knives, tweezers and surgical tools, Brian Dettmer carves one page at a time.

The Book Surgeon (15 pieces)

Nothing inside the out-of-date encyclopedias, medical journals, illustration books, or dictionaries is relocated or implanted, only removed. Dettmer manipulates the pages and spines to form the shape of his sculptures. He also folds, bends, rolls, and stacks multiple books to create completely original sculptural forms. "My work is a collaboration with the existing material and its past creators and the completed pieces expose new relationships of the book’s internal elements exactly where they have been since their original conception," he says. "The richness and depth of the book is universally respected yet often undiscovered as the monopoly of the form and relevance of the information fades over time.

Dettmer is originally from Chicago, where he studied at Columbia College. Update: Read our exclusive interview with the Book Surgeon here. Brian Dettmer's website. - StumbleUpon. 12:31.

A mysterious and enigmatic tale, it attracted the attention of Tomasz Bagiński, an artist and animator from the same country. He was intrigued by the prize winning piece of fiction and became determined to bring it to life as an animation. He did an exemplary job. It is as powerful as the original story.

Like the best science fiction the film refuses to bottle feed its audience and instead relies on individual interpretation of what is happening. (Spoiler alert if you have not watched the movie). A man, perhaps some sort of pilgrim, comes to a numinous, mysterious building which to our eyes initially looks like a medieval cathedral. The building shows its true nature at dawn when the light blinds and enchants him. If you would like something completely different, but still utterly cool:

Creativity Lessons From Charles Dickens and Steve Jobs. Creativity is the most essential skill for navigating an increasingly complex world — or so said 1,500 CEOs across 60 countries in a recent survey by IBM.

Creativity Lessons From Charles Dickens and Steve Jobs

And yet federally funded research and development — creativity, institutionalized — is down 20% as a share of America’s GDP since the late 1980s. Private R&D spending has also tailed off since then, when it brought us breakthrough innovations like laser printing, Ethernet, the graphical user interface, and the mouse. And that was just from one company’s private R&D engine, Xerox’s PARC. At the same time, experts fret that our public school system doesn’t foster enough creativity in our future workforce. All of which makes it easy to worry that we’ll run out of creative leaders producing creative goods. Reduce stress, but don’t relax too much.
