grain edit · modern graphic design inspiration blog + vintage graphics resource How to use Google Forms in the Art Room If you are looking for ways to make your art room digitized and organized in the Cloud with ‘Google Drive’, Google Forms is a great part of the Google Drive family. The program is a lot like “Survey Monkey,” allowing you to ask specific questions and get answers aggregated into one common place. The possibilities with Google Forms are endless, from students using it to enter in Artsonia artist statements to creating an end of the year evaluation of your course. This year my colleague and I decided to team up and create a 5th through 8th grade art club. Google Forms is part of the Google family, which allows you to create a form or survey or test for students to fill out. Check out this video tutorial I made showing how I create, share, and use Google Forms in my Art Room: Have you used Google Forms with your students or colleagues before? What ways could you use Google Forms to collect information quickly?

Core77 / industrial design magazine + resource / home iPad Art Room Speak Up Archives HELLO (AND, WELL, GOODBYE)After nearly seven years of blogging, Speak Up has ceased publication. While this may not be a remarkable amount of time in the world of print and online publishing, the intensity with which we — founders, authors and readers alike — undertook it made it seem as it had been decades. For a thorough description on the reasons to close Speak Up, you may read this post, so as not to take much more space here. To the right you will see all of our categories with a brief description of what you may find. Below are some highlights from our time spent blogging. We hope all this helps maintain the legacy of Speak Up frozen in digital time and that it may be of some use to passersby. Bryony and Armin Principals, UnderConsideration LLC THE RISE AND FALL (AND RISE) OF LOGO DISCUSSIONOn March 25, 2003 UPS announced that, after 42 years of service, it would do away with its bow-tied logo designed by Paul Rand in 1961. SELF PUBLISHING, IT’S HARD! WHY SO SERIOUS? BEST.

Changethethought “A recalcitrant bicycle thief falls in love with the bicycle he’s stolen. Inspired by the films of François Truffaut. Created by Budnitz Bicycles, directed by Russ Lamoureux, produced by Partizan.” Budnitz Bicycles was actually founded by Kid Robot founder Paul Budnitz who now resides in Boulder. The Forty Story The story of a boy born on the day Pentagram opened and how his life has been tracked (and kerned) by forty years of Pentagram design. Written by Naresh Ramchandani and Tom Edmonds Directed by Christian Carlsson Additional animation by Simone Nunziato Sound design by Iain Grant and Wam London Music by Graeme Miller Titles by John Rushworth Design by Pentagram Voiceover by Daniel Lapaine It’s that time again to refresh your Kult House page. Kate Bosworth lends her beauty to this allegorical performance in the Vanessa Bruno short film, LØV. Our good friend Tony Benna, of Mekanism, directed these beautifully composed vignettes for the Samsung Sh-100 camera. PSYOP don’t stop.

Bush, Harken Energy, and Jackson Stephens, ca. 1979-90 (5th version) , 1999 With the 40th anniversary of the assassination of JFK freshly behind us, our abiding romance with conspiracy theories seems more ardent than ever. Although Lombardi's work has combined the mesmerizing detail of the engineering diagram and the obsessive annotation of the outsider artist, the man was neither scientist nor madman. The resulting body of work must be seen to be believed — an admittedly oxymoronic endorsement of subject matter of such supreme skepticism. Lombardi was indeed an enthusiastic student of information design, a reader of Edward Tufte and a collector of the charts of Nigel Holmes. Lomardi, who was born in 1951 and died in 2000, did not live to see today's historical moment, where his worldview seems not eccentric but positively prescient.
