126,685 ViewsNovember 28, 2013London, UKDesign 5 min read Some of the benefits of online education are really focused on money, personal time management, pace and real fun projects and active communities. Recently I have published an interview with Matt Loszak who learned iOS development himself and quit his day job to pursue entrepreneurial success. Affordability While most of the courses, studies, and special workshops cost hundreds and sometimes thousands of dollars online education is the way to get demandable knowledge and skills and start working for any tech company or starting your own service-based business or creating products yourself. Immersive communities Learning with a community is much more fun and efficient. Learn at your own pace You have a family, full-time job and not much spare time. Build something real While learning you shouldn’t learn just for the sake of learning, try to solve the problem and your learning project might evolve into a business. Let’s get started!

How Would You Like Your Graphic Design? #infographic Designed by Colin Harman, How Would You Like Your Graphic Design? made me laugh this morning. Great venn diagram infographic. There are times when things just need to be explained using a spectacular Venn diagram. Although designed as a treatise about graphic design, it applies to infographics as well. Update on Monday, January 31, 2011 at 2:02PM by Randy The designer, Colin Harman, has made the printed poster available here: Na vi avatar photo manipulation exclusive tutorial This is a Photoshop tutorial showing you all the steps you need to take in order to photo-manipulate yourself into a Na'vi (based on the characters in James Cameron's movie "Avatar"). I used Photoshop CS2 in order to create this, but newer and older versions should do the same, as I used basic Photoshop tools only. I hope you will find this helpful. But before we start, check these useful resources for photo manipulation that will help you create an amazing effect on your photo Step 1 Import a photograph of your choice, but make sure its size is relatively large, as it gives more room to play with. Step 2 Choose a "hard" brush from the"Tools" window (I tend to use a "Chalk" brush) and set its "Mode" to "Color", and its "Opacity" to 50%. And finally, pick a shade of purple, I used #472a50, with a small brush and its Opacity set to 10%, paint the lips with it, and then randomly brush all over the face with it, as this breaks everything up a bit, thus making it more "natural" looking. Step 3

50 FREE FONTS Today we round up the top 50 best free fonts for you to download. Did we mention they were free? Interesting, Easy, Beautiful, True? I’ve been doing a few interviews to promote my book, The Visual Miscellaneum, and a question keeps coming up. What makes good information design? This is the point where I go a bit glassy. So, I made a nice cup of tea and had a think and came up with this. To me, these seem like the key components of a good infographic / data visualisation / piece of information design. Information needs to be interesting (meaningful & relevant) and have integrity (accuracy, consistency).Design needs to have form (beauty & structure) and function (it has to work and be easy to use). You may disagree. Something surprised me about doing this though. In information design, it seems, if you have just two elements, you get something tolerable and cool. i.e. integrity + form = eye candyinterestingness + function = experiment (I’m not entirely sure about these combos) But if you combine three elements without the fourth, things suddenly FAIL: What do you think?
