There hasn’t been a design style that has captured the web’s creative community like that of parallax website design in ages, which, in non industry terms, is about a few months. You might be wondering what parallax website design is, I don’t believe I have ever heard of this. Well actually you have heard it, and seen its use for some time now. Before going into showcasing some really well designed websites utilizing parallax design, let’s take some time to examine and explain what it is.Read More
A logo is an image that is supposed to be the representation of an organization. The logo’s job is to give off the same energy you would want people to receive when you describe the company or organization it represents. That being said, it is quite astonishing that there are actually people out there that are willing, and more importantly bold enough to, post a logo design job somewhere in the price range of $100. Some even are bold enough to disrespect the creative community even more by going as low as $50, some lower than that.
The designers that accept these quite disrespectful jobs can’t be fully faulted here, quite frankly they just don’t know any better. For the most part, the people taking these demeaning jobs are either young starving designers on their last dollar with no solid client in sight, a relative of the person posting who plays around in Adobe Photoshop Elements every now and then, or they were daring enough to take it into their own hands after getting no responses. This treatment of logo design is of course going to lead to the inevitable lower creative standards set for this creative practice. With a key creative field being demeaned every day, a client base for this field with an ‘ignorance is bliss’ mindset, and swarms of people claiming falsely to be designers, what is there for real professional creatives to do?Read More

The talk about great innovators and visionaries has been hot these past few weeks, with images and articles about Steve Jobs appearing in every corner of the internet world. The focus was on Steve Jobs, and his passing, but should that stop us from honoring earlier innovators, who not only innovated things during their time, but also helped create what we have now?
Below you will meet some of the world’s best inventors when it comes to disseminating information and improving technology as we know it. I must warn you, all but one have left this world. Still, with new technology booming every month, it surely won’t hurt learning about them!
As Plato once said, “study the past if you would divine the future,” so we must!Read More
Type based logo designs are logo designs that are created solely with the help of typefaces. Logo design is the graphical representation of the business and it is a sign of the business or products; and therefore, must be created with credibility of the company.
Since the aim of designing a logo is to keep it simple yet maintaining the quality of logo, text-based logo design scores high because of their minimalism and excellence. Text based logo designs are most effective and they aesthetically satisfy the target audience and hold the potential to make a way into customers’ minds as a selling agent. As we have already published a post some time ago about Type-Based Logo Designs. Here is another creative collection of some amazingly designed text-based logos for you. Enjoy!Read More
Hotels cannot be tagged as a second home for most of us (other than those executives who tend to spend their lifetimes in hotels) but the time spent in a hotel somehow sticks with us. Not saying that life never gifted me with the luxury that a hotel serves but still! The hotel industry has grown leaps and bounds due to their efficient on-spot service.
Although the hotel industry is already flourishing, there is still a lot of room for improvement. Most hotels do not understand the importance of their online presence. Having a website is not the only solution. It is about a riveting website just like it is about riveting service within hotel premises. I thought that it was time for me to study the latest trends on hotel web design and help you gauge a few real-time examples. Time to check-in!Read More
Advertisements on almost every website (blogs to be precise, as the line between a website and a blog is diminishing quickly) look visually familiar to me although some people believe they don’t belong on websites at all.
The subject of today’s discussion will be the art of marketing and how we seem to take the same for granted. Remember, you must be selflessly selfish while giving away ad spots on your website. Otherwise, your client will give away the money during the first deal but might not renew the same due to negative results.
Apple is the brainchild of one of the greatest innovators of history, Steve Jobs. His passing was unexpected and early; but he has left us with enough wealth in knowledge. Steve Jobs changed the way we listen to music, communicate with people and interact with our gadgets. Apple created a new way of thinking… no, Apple created a whole new way of living.Read More
