Well Made Studio Blog By Gemma There’s been a lot of chatter this week about Squarespace’s latest addition - a tool which allows absolutely anyone to very quickly, very easily design their own logo. The chatter was, understandably from our own ranks initially, full of vitriol. There is however, an alternative way of looking at Squarespace Logo. How To Make Digital Photos Look Like Lomo Photography The following tip on getting digital images to look like Lomo Images was submitted by DPS reader – Frank Lazaro. You can see his photography at his Flickr page and see some of his Lomo shots here. From the first time I saw a photo that looked like this, I wanted to shoot one of my own. Low and behold I went out and bought 2 of these babies. I searched and searched and after trying several different Photoshop methods, I finally came up with my own using a mix of different techniques.

Getting Started – Creating a Vignette The first thing you want to do is create the classic vignette that the Lomos are well known for and I achieve this by doing a freehand lasso of a circle around the photo. Once you have set the feather (shown above) and have drawn the circle, you must invert the selection. Now to achieve the vignette, I add a Levels layer. Now you have a vignette.
VISUALSUNDAE Jolly Jack's Collected Curios 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. By privileging these episodes – outrageous as they are – racism is basically reduced to the level of a private, individual indiscretion made public. The scandal becomes not that racism exists but that anyone would be crass enough to articulate it so brazenly. The reality of modern racism is almost exactly the opposite: it’s the institutional marginalisation of groups performed with the utmost discretion and minimum of fuss by well-mannered and often well-intentioned people working in deeply flawed systems. This is the soporific, statistical drumbeat to which black children march through our institutions and to which society as a whole has become inured.
Potion Factory designers of tumblr Red Velvet Cake Recipe — Pinch My Salt Red Velvet Cake. Until I met my husband, I had never even heard of a red velvet cake. Since it seems to be a southern specialty, I guess it’s not surprising that I never ran across one growing up in California. But thanks to the California cupcake boom, it seems like there’s now a cupcake shop on every corner and every single one of them features some version of miniature red velvet cake. But that’s not why I made this cake. And partly because I was tired of waiting, but mostly in celebration of a momentous occasion, I decided to take matters into my own hands, and give this cake a try myself. You see, right before we left Sicily last year, my husband was promoted. I even toyed with the idea of a Black Forest Cake, another one that gets requested from time to time (maybe next time, Justin). Now, I won’t lie. Sure enough, lots of Red Velvet Cake recipes require the same amount of food coloring. Especially my hands. I thought this really was a great cake. Save Recipe Print Recipe Ingredients
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. (via booooooom) TANDEM FILMS - London UK Animation Studio Wrap magazine For the latest issue of Wrap we were lucky enough to be able to work with the super talented illustrator Alex Walker who created this image, ‘Cosmic Sorbet’, in response to the issues theme of balance. Alex said he made this image with quite a free-form approach to try and capture a sense of visual balance and to make something ‘process-led and fun’. Alex’s artwork is available as a pull-out print/wrapping paper in Wrap issue 11- ‘Balance’, alongside a in-depth interview with him. Order online at: wrap.bigcartel.com
