A Fresh Perspective can be a Rare Delight

A Fresh Perspective can be a Rare Delight

A fresh perspective can be a rare delight, especially when the subject matter itself is so familiar to the audience. In a recent art piece Oliver Curtis has managed to create a witty and thoughtful set of photographs of some of the most famous sites in the world - no mean feat given how often they have been snapped or sketched into 2D existence! How has he done this? Curtis has stood with his back to the monument itself and captured an insightful moment of what lies...

The Cup that Colour Maps

The Cup that Colour Maps

We just got a masterclass in using colour, and the lesson came from a tea cup. Getting colour right is tough. You have to use it in the right place in the right way, with the right neighbours. You have to know your audience and your craft. When it comes to colour, you have to know when and how to play it out and when and where to keep the volume low. 

Enter POP stoneware by Sagaform. This is crockery with serious colour attitude and its...

Representing London

Representing London

Beck’s London tube map is rightly held up as a pinnacle of graphic design. It is a benchmark for map-making, perfectly bridging a demand for clarity with a bold and arresting aesthetic. For this reason, Beck’s map has defined part of what we think of as ‘London’ from the moment of its release onto the walls of London’s stations to the present day. 

As with all great works, once they have been assimilated into...

Debating Data

Debating Data

There is currently an information war being played out at light speed through the cables and wireless systems that inhabit our world. It is a fight for data, or rather, a fight for data ownership and its associated uses.

Every year individuals and organisations are waking up to the potential uses of data to inform and direct research projects. Raw data is extremely powerful. We need look no further than Google and its vast range of free services...

Edible Incredible - Design Solutions

Edible Incredible - Design Solutions

The best design manages to seem effortless, merging so well with its brief and subject that it is indistinguishable from the overall product. So it is with a new product recently launched on the crowd-funding website kickstarter. Meet the edible spoon, a spoon that is surely the future of packed lunches and fast food outlets. 

Produced by a company called Bakey, their edible cutlery aims to prevent the massive amount of waste associated...

Internet Of Things

Internet Of Things

How many of us have a mobile phone connected to the internet? Tablet? Watch? Ok, not all of us have a smartwatch, but perhaps a smart car, thermostat or a Wii? The list goes on. This, plus all the many, many objects that interact with the internet, commonly referred to as ‘smart’ devices, are what make up the internet of things. 

It wasn’t so long ago that people would log on to a shared computer at work or at home and use it to process data,...

Women Coders - Better for Everyone

Women Coders - Better for Everyone

A recent study in the USA has produced evidence to suggest that women may be better at coding than men. However, alongside this win for female tech workers was disappointment, as their findings also produced compelling data to suggest an inherent gender bias still remains within the software industry. 

The university teams from two Departments of Computer Science used the open source software resource, Github, to carry out their research....

You won't believe what we found out about the downfall of Clickbait and how you actually have to write good content.

We've all been there. A quiet lunchtime in the office or Sunday morning in bed with a hangover, messing about on Facebook. You come across someone promising to show you a photo of a cute UNICORN KITTEN playing with a celebrity who has done something TERRIBLE OMG.

Why Good Typography Matters

Why Good Typography Matters

One of the first things every designer should invest time in is understanding how important typography can be. Whether it’s for a single logo or a 100 page brochure, correct typography is a fundamental aspect of all good design.

Once they have grasped this importance, they’ll then spend the rest of their careers trying to explain it to clients!

The Importance of Infographics

The Importance of Infographics

Infographics are a great visual medium for sharing data and insights in a way that is both fun and interesting to read. Their highly visual nature and ease with which they can be used to convey often complex information has made them extremely popular online with the media and businesses.

The ability to quickly and visually tell two sides of a story, offering data to support both sides of an argument in order to reach a conclusion, is a huge plus point of infographics.
