Graphic & Web Design Archives

Just recently Adobe released the new Adobe CC 2017 updates and part of that was a completely new Dreamweaver that includes an all-new code engine, completely refreshed user interface with selectable dark themes, support for modern web workflows such as CSS Preprocessors, and more. More after the jump…
I’ve discovered Scott Hansen as a graphic designer before I got to know about his music path as Tycho. I’ve always admired the simplicity in his work as a designer. He doesn’t do much design anymore except for his album art & T-shirts. It’s almost always something that I want to add to my inspiration stream.
There's a new show on Netflix that is generating some buzz called Stranger Things. I haven't seen it yet but I have seen the opening credits. I'm interested in learning Adobe After Effects. That's why I always try to analyse animations to discover how it's done. What follows are some great tutorials that explain the opening credits in detail.
You always know you'll learn something with the videos of Julieanne Kost.
When I started freelancing back in the nineties there was no Internet to search for valuable resources. You either had someone that took the same jump into the deep end and advices you with his/her experience or you had to figure things out along the way. That’s essentially how I did it. A risky path with mistakes along the way. How times have changed… I finally had time to read a little book that I received from FreeAgent some time ago.
Just a while ago I wrote about a cool project I finished for a small start up company called Arriva. I shared the logo design process back then. Today I’ll talk about the design of the web site and I’ll share how I get started with my coding, how I prepare the different assets, which tools I use, and how I organise my files, my CSS (or better put SCSS) in particular.
A couple of years ago I created a lighthouse as part of an illustrated header for a web site. However, the illustration didn't get approved by the client. It was one of the first projects I shared a screenshot of on dribbble. Today I'll show you how to draw this lighthouse scenery in Adobe Illustrator. As always, I'll explain each simple step. With all these great tools at our disposal, this simple illustration requires you to use the Pen tool only once. I guess I did give the lighthouse a new home just like Dan Cederholm stated in a comment back then. So let's get started!
It’s always great when you’re involved in the design of a project from the very beginning, and you can design everything from A till Z. Especially if you share the same passion about the project as the client. In this case: coffee, and riding your bike! Today I would like to share my experience on the design process of this project, called Arriva, a small start-up company.
As a long time partner of Authentic Jobs it's my great pleasure to announce the new design. It's a preview for now as it's a significant departure from the previous design, which were much more realign than redesign. This version is both realign and redesign — an iterative evolution of a decade-old product and a complete design & code overhaul. Here's a small look into the design process…
Yes you read that right I'm working on version 4.0 of my blog :) Long overdue I know. Strictly speaking there should have been a 3.5 version in 2012 but that one was never released. If you are curious how that would have looked like you can find out after the jump.
