The Secret Law of Page Harmony - Retinart

The Secret Law of Page Harmony - Retinart
“A method to produce the perfect book.” The perfect book. This is how designer-genius Jan Tschichold described this system. Not the ok book, nor the pretty good book, but the perfect book. This method existed long before the computer, the printing press and even a defined measuring unit. No picas or points, no inches or millimeters. And you can still use it. The Secret Canon & Page Harmony Books were once a luxury only the richest could afford and would take months of work to be brought to fruition. And they were harmoniously beautiful. The bookmakers knew the secret to the perfect book. So elegant is this method of producing harmony that a few designers saw to rediscover it. They found the way to design a harmonious page. There’s a dance to all this Let’s look at this dance, shall we? And here it is with them (using the Van de Graaf Canon and Tschichold’s recommended 2:3 page-size ratio, which we’ll get into next). This is where the harmony is found. How is this dance beautiful? The J. Well.

Building Modern Web Applications 0inShare I gave this presentation to a packed house at DevCon5 in NYC on July 24th. DevCon5 is a web developers' conference and this year it focused on HTML5. This was one of the hardest presentations I’ve worked on for the simple fact that the audience had name recognition of, but not familiarity with, the database industry. Typically I’ve leaned on the fact that most participants were familiar with at least one database prior to my presentation; I had no such luxury here. After weeks of work, I think it turned out pretty well.

Bootcamp App Exercise Descriptions & Couch to 5K Having trouble remembering the exercises? Don’t worry, with time you’ll know them all by heart, especially if you’re working out regularly. Here is a break down of Bootcamp’s exercises in each of the four categories. The in app exercise picture along with the description are listed below. As always, have fun and enjoy your workouts. My 5 and 2 year old LOVE when we workout together with this app. Plain or Fancy? A new exhibit at New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art I tried, really I did. But with a vintage Braun coffeemaker and Muji soap dishes, was there any chance I would prefer the items on the Fancy side of the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s tiny new exhibit, “Plain or Fancy? Restraint and Exuberance in the Decorative Arts”? Not really. I stood in front of the Dutch seventeenth-century nautilus cup—a pearly shell the size of a softball, surmounted with a golden Neptune riding a whale, out of whose mouth Jonah emerges (must not have been against the rules to mix mythologies). I wished the mount away.

Retro is Reborn: A Look at the Color Trend What’s old is new again. That’s the way most trends seem to work anyway. Retro color palettes are a great example of how an old look is being reborn in web design. Retro color styles are popping up in a variety of uses but commonly we are seeing more mod, flat, art deco-style colors being used in projects. From oranges to yellowish-browns to off-white to blues, retro color is definitely making a comeback. The Retro Color Trend

But as mentioned above, you can use the log definition in either direction. These examples are to get you use to that definition: Hyperreality In semiotics and postmodernism, hyperreality is an inability of consciousness to distinguish reality from a simulation of reality, especially in technologically advanced postmodern societies. Hyperreality is seen as a condition in which what is real and what is fiction are seamlessly blended together so that there is no clear distinction between where one ends and the other begins.[1] It allows the co-mingling of physical reality with virtual reality (VR) and human intelligence with artificial intelligence (AI).[2] Individuals may find themselves for different reasons, more in tune or involved with the hyperreal world and less with the physical real world. Some famous theorists of hyperreality/hyperrealism include Jean Baudrillard, Albert Borgmann, Daniel J. Boorstin, Neil Postman and Umberto Eco.
