Title: Mamout Dimensions: 60x80cm Technique: Posca, Steadtler “S†ella is a young Parisian artist, born in 1989 in Yvelines. She studied graphic design at Troyes before embarking on a freelance career and is now working on many projects with 83a studio, specializing in video-projected imager…The works of S†ella feed the huge zoological diversity and question the living through the prism of anthropomorphism.

THE MADE SHOP And so the perception – on both sides of the Atlantic – takes hold that racism is not a system of discrimination planted by history, nourished by politics and nurtured by economics, in which some groups face endemic disadvantage – it’s about ignorant old people getting caught saying mean things.

Designcloud Spector by Fiana O’Leary As her graduation project from the Royal College of Art, designer Fiona O’Leary invented a device that scans and identifies typeface and colours — beaming the samples directly to a nearby computer or storing the information for later. While currently only a prototype, it’s clear that Spector could become wildly popular with graphic designers and typophiles. Wired referred to it as “Shazam for fonts” but also pointed out that one major obstacle in its development may lie in its ability to aid in design theft. Check out the video of it in action below.

This photo is the result of adjusting the color curves, adding two vignettes, and a color fill, which we will walk through step-by-step.
