2013 has ended with a great blast and I’m pretty sure that everyone has done their countdowns and throwback blog posts, tweets and even status updates. It’s a pretty cool thing to do because you get to remember all the awesome things 2013 has given you. You look back at how bad you were design-wise last year and how well you’ve improved. With this, you get to assess yourself how much more you could exert and, in turn, how much more money you could earn. Retrospection also tells you what more could you learn. Seeing what you’re weak at will also allow you to see where you could trained. That is why self-correction and openness to new things is a great habit for a designer.Read More

In this typography design tutorial, I will guide you on how to transform boring texts to your advantage. You will learn how to utilize typography for your website, or even for your print needs. This article will extend from web page design, to printing to graphic images.
They say letters are boring. Unlike videos and music, text is static. It does not move or tickle other senses besides the eyes. Texts are usually placed as information-dissemination tools which convey the detailed message of the media being used. For example, if you upload a YouTube video tutorial, the video is the dynamic medium which will aid the viewer to achieve the goal. On the other hand, the text will provide all the details needed in case something is not clear.
This fact might give you an impression that texts are really boring. But what if they are really not? What if texts, which are used mainly to detail, are used for the design function? How is that possible? Of course, through typography.
Typography has existed for a long time. It originated from a time we all couldn’t remember. Basically, typography is the technique of putting texts or types in an orderly manner to make it visible, attractive and readable. Simply put, typography is the art of working with texts, graphically.
The tutorial is divided into five parts:
- Creating Typographies Using Photoshop
- Choosing the Perfect Fonts for Every Occasion
- Where to Download Fonts (Free and Premium)
- How to Consider the Perfect Colors Fit for Your Design
- Sample Finished Product on a Website
