What is Swiss Style Typography?

Posted in Tips, Typography, Web Design • Posted on 11 Comments

The world would probably thank Switzerland for the invention of the Swiss knife but the world could not thank it any better for the popularization of the Swiss Style. That though this famous design style isn’t originally Swiss-made, the touch of the country is still present even to the smallest detail of the design.

Swiss Style typography, though traced from Russia, Germany and the Netherlands, was made popular by Swiss graphic designers. They have used it with many Swiss cultural institutions, political advertisements and a lot more because it was thought to have suited the drastically increasing global postwar market. It was used in street signs, maps, public service announcements, etc. In this demand, institutions, corporations and small firms needed a universal identification method that could be easily related to them. The trick was, the method should be universal enough to be understood by every citizen of the world. The Olympics was one good example of a global institutional event Swiss style helped because it has used the simplest symbols using the most universal colors possible.

Posted in Inspiration • Posted on 20 Comments

We all love Photoshop. It has done wonders for all designers, photographers and hobbyists by providing a one-program solution for all the design needs. It is very flexible, easy to use and readily available. Its tools are so perfectly fitting for all the design needs, you’ll never look for another! This is the main reason why we all love this amazing program, right?

But behind all of these quirky features, do we all know where it all began? Do you know the history of Adobe Photoshop? Aren’t we all curious where our favorite software came from? Who made it? Well, this calls for a history lesson.

The tale began in 1987 when PhD student Tom Knoll wrote a graphics application in a Macintosh Plus. The software was used to display gray scale images on a monochrome display. Knoll called it ‘Display.’ We could now consider Display as the unofficial father of our beloved Photoshop.

Icon Talk: Choosing the Perfect Icons for Your Website

Posted in Icons, Illustration, Tips, Web Design • Posted on 15 Comments

This thought might be the prevailing philosophy that hides beneath the shroud of web design: that small details sometimes happen to be the most important ones. That the things we think do not matter in our design are, in fact, necessary for the smooth flow and exchange of information.

Sometimes small things tend to have the biggest importance.

One of these small things that are commonly taken for granted are icons. Icons can be considered as a worldwide-understood element of web design. They are apprehended by most people, making the websites benefit from the addition of such. It is in this universality that icons are considered to be one of the most important design elements that have ever walked (figuratively) on the face of the earth.

Graphics and Lyrics: How to Make Eyegasmic Infographics

Posted in Illustration, Inspiration, Typography • Posted on 6 Comments

Graphics play a role in our Internet learning experience. Images have become part and parcel of the information acquisition process in our lives. Normally, graphics like pictures and drawings are used as aids and not the main tool for learning. They are just appendices that help people understand the information that is being fed to them.

That was the general idea before the influx of the Internet. The pre-Internet idea is dominated by the belief that graphics are just ‘aids.’ But it has surprised learning purists that graphics can be very good tools as main information sources. Thanks to the Internet, we now have Infographics!

How to Not Suck at Typography Like a Designer-convert Doctor

Posted in Tips, Typography, Web Design • Posted on 10 Comments

We probably would all  be savages if printing was not invented. The invention of the Gutenberg movable type has been a very great leap towards the spreading of information from one person to another and from generation to generation. After this momentous invention, greater finds have flourished and soon became what we know now as the software. Of course, without the invention of the movable type, printing would not be invented and all falls into oblivion, including one of the most reliable inventions man has ever made – the Internet.

Whether we admit it or not, the invention of printing is the unofficial father of all technology. Without it, technology would just be limited to mechanical modernization. Software would have probably not existed and the world would be a much gloomier place. Truly, the gallant invention of the Gutenberg movable type saved humanity from the decadence of ignorance.
