While working up some pages and Creative Tidbits for our Designing Women special I discovered the art of painting stones. I had no idea it is such a popular and wide-spread practiced art and craft. Although searches bring up literally millions of images, it is not a new art. It's one that's been practiced for thousands of years. Here are just a few of the highlights we found.
What's more fun than Cinemagraphic GIF files, moving? Well, we've got those, along with another free font and some art photography you can enjoy. I've provided a link to see all the images as thumbnails too! Along with that we see another of those "minimal" logo collections -- are they really logos? We'll see, and we'll have a great time this this issue.
This week's Tidbits has something for everyone! We really enjoy learning opportunities, and Hannah Poindexter's piece is very good and should be part of our legendary "Brief History of Typography" series in the Type Department. Yes, and speaking of type, we do have a free font this time, and a free DTP template as well as more tips on creating your online portfolio.
We always welcome your suggestions and ideas and items for the DTG Creative staff to visit and review! Just lead us there!
The social media field is about to heat up with the approach of Valentine's Day, and a ton of spring events and activities. If we can get people to stop the fake news and click bait of the elections, and concentrate on what's hot for marketing, the graphic designers could go to work.
Off to a great start, and here comes February! My favorite item in this edition of Creative Tidbits is the Photo exposition from the 2016 White House photographs -- WOW! Yes, and a free font, some excellent Photoshop Text effects and how to 'fix' Design cannibalism ... a great issue this week and remember, you can always suggest items for the DTG Creative staff to visit and review! Just lead us there!
It occured to me the other day that I sure am glad I'm not Stephen Hawking. But then the little voice said aren't you ashamed of yourself, Mr. Hawking along with Wolf Blitzer*, Anderson Cooper* and Jon Stewart* have been attacked by cyber crime in one of the worst ways possible! Cybercrime has exploited his condition and made him the most spoofed celebrity in 2016! Too bad there isn't some way he can get back at the low-life spammers at Inteligen*. January 31, 2017
