    I'm obtaining a design education right now. The most important thing to do in and out of school is to learn. Devour every bit of design information you can, and learn your design history***. Network (go...

    I'd sure not want to do real work on a 11-inch display or, for that matter, a 13-inch display. But what kind of work would you really be doing on it since you have an iMac at home? A small MacBook Air...

    It was your post, it was green for a while and stopped being green, maybe it was a bug. Does anyone know what it's called when you see a bad design and get a headache just by seeing it? Is there a...

    Do you mean his user name is green, or his whole post/comment is shaded green? His user name is green because he's been here a loooong time. You should not be able to see green shaded (unapproved) po...

  • Communicate Helvetica.

    I am currently in the process of making a series of poster, displaying the 10 rules of graphic design. These rules are poster form and made to be displayed in design studio's or universities. This is my self initiated brief and my most thought out work.

    Here is one idea for one of the rules. Highlighting the fact that Helvetica was primarily a communicative typeface. But now is put into any form of design. They are many more decorative typeface to choose from.

    The entire posters is decorated. Remove the type and its nothing BUT decoration... Not really the message your type says.

      I agree. I dont' get the graphic at all and how it correlates.

          Big decoration, tiny little type, message saying don't do it.

              maybe just have all type but in the word decoration, instead of type, have all that decoration in the forms of the letters, kinda where it may be a bit difficult to read.

              this will relay the message that too much decoration is hard to read, which equals less effective way of communication.

              just a thought. have fun!!

                I don't even agree with the "rule" let alone the design. You should watch the Helvetica movie.

                  i watched the helvetice movie. i made the design to contradict itself, because subliminally i wanted it too break the rules. maybe i never made that clear in the design. I have another design which i want to show with no decoration.


                  Does any one have any ideas for design rules. they can be funny, principal or just what you think. about the way designers should design.

                    Design rule #1: Hire a professional
                    Design rule #2: Follow rule number 1 to a 'T'.

                          To communicate you dont play mind games...its a complete contradiction.
