6 | 18 Of Canada's Best Logos The Swiss get a lot of credit for their graphic design. And New York gave the design world the likes of Saul Bass, Paul Rand, and Milton Glaser, to name just a few. But Canada’s legions of graphic designers seem to go somewhat uncelebrated, which is a shame: A scroll through this new online register of the country’s logos reveals that our northern neighbors have long had a capacity for tasteful and minimal branding. The Northern Army Preservation Society of Canada, as it’s called, is an online dossier of Canada’s best logos, curated by Ottawa-based design studio Northern Army. So far, they’ve collected 186 (and counting) logos. Looking at these, it’s clear the Northern Army team has an affinity for the more restrained, flat graphics from the 1960s through the '80s. A few of Northern Army's favorites are in the slide show above. *A previous version of this story said we had 20 logos.

Creating Complex Style Illustrations: A Process Learn the process of making a tribal-style illustration using only some fundamental techniques in Adobe Illustrator. This is more of a process overview than a play-by-play tutorial and thus, some basic skills in the program are needed in order to follow along. The main goal here is to show a workflow process, and from there, it’s up to you to add your own style and aesthetical preferences to your piece. Preview Tutorial Resources Overview of the Layering First, I want to show you the layer overview of the design so you have an idea of what we are trying to accomplish. Step 1: Setting Up and Preparing Your Work Area Open Adobe Illustrator and create a new document. After you have placed the image, scale it to about 300% of its original size by right-clicking on it and choosing Transform > Scale from the menu. After that, double-click the layer in the Layers Panel and rename it to "Base Image" so that we are keeping our work organized. Step 2: Tracing the Image Step 3: Adding Details to Eyes

20 | 100 Years Of Olympic Logos: A Depressing History Of Design Crimes If you're not a fan of the 2014 Winter Olympic Games' minimalist logo, hey, it could have been worse. Much worse. For proof, consider this slide show of all of the Olympic Games logos between 1924 and 2020. There have been some beautifully designed logos throughout the Olympic Games' rich history, but sadly, that seems to be very much the exception, not the rule. Starting in the summer of 1984, for example, a typographical mad man appears to have seized control of the International Olympics Committee, and in his subsequent 14-year reign of terror, lop the heads off any designer who suggested a typeface that did not come pre-installed with Microsoft Word. Revisiting almost a century of Olympic logos, what stands out is how muddled, confused, and almost simperingly non-threatening the last 30 years of Olympic design has actually been. Let's just hope over the next century's worth of sportsmanship, that committee's taste gets a tad more sophisticated, and fast.

Web Safe Colours Diagram with rgb and hex values What are web-safe colours? The diagram below illustrates the 216 web-safe, or browser-safe, colours. These are the only colours that can be displayed reliably across all browsers and operating systems running at 8-bit colour depth (i.e. the colours will not dither or band when used to display areas of flat colour). If non-web-safe colours are used for areas of flat colour, unsightly dithering can occur when a page designed for a pc is viewed on a Mac, or when a page designed in Internet Explorer is viewed in Netscape Navigator. The web-safe palette is based on mathematics, rather than aesthetics, and comprises all colours with red, green and blue decimal values of 0, 51, 102, 153, 204 and 255 ( or 00, 33, 66, 99, CC, FF in hex). Rather than displaying the web-safe colours in terms of hue, saturation or luminance, the diagram displays the colours in a format that allows colour patterns and complementary colour combinations to be more easily identified.
