You asked for more, so you got it. We’ve covered Latin American, Middle Eastern, Dutch, Chinese and Japanese graphic design. It was a beautiful introduction to art from our brothers who speak different tongues. Graphic Design can be dramatic, emotional, powerful, romantic, serene, political or even all of the above.

We’ve all experienced it at one point: we’ve created an impressive digital work, and wanting to show it off to other people, decided to print it. But after seeing the printing job, you are horrified to see that the colors are off, the brightness, contrast or saturation is all wrong. You’ve realized that your screen’s calibration is wrong.

Design Trends vs. Great Design

Posted in Tips, Usability, Web Design3 years ago • Written by 7 Comments

Here is something that I believe touches the design community and each of its members on a personal level each day. We all use inspiration and we have a “design style.” But where the line begins to become blurry is right between trends and greatness. It’s not so much that I believe a particular design trend is great or that one isn’t, but moreso that we need to take a step back and remember that trends come and go and that one trend doesn’t make a design great. Also remember that just because a trend works for one project, doesn’t mean it works for another. So what I’m going to do here is give a nice little reminder to think before you design and take each project on its own.

Gain More Traffic: Useful Sites For Web Design Tutorial Submission

Posted in Social Media, Web Design3 years ago • Written by 16 Comments

It can often be inconvenient and time consuming to visit each design or tutorial blog to check out whether there’s a new tutorial you’re interested in. Moreover if you’re a beginner you just want to find high-quality tutorials quickly and preferably in one place. Sites like this exist, but I bet most of you haven’t seen anything other than Photoshop Lady. I’m not a big fan of these large search engines, though they can be really useful and handy, and not only for visitors and readers. Having your tutorial published on various sites will generate a lot of traffic and publicity for you. It’s a win-win situation – more people will be able to learn from your tutorial and you will get more visitors to your blog.
