Design 101

A successful design must be directly related to the problem at hand. The interaction between type and images is crucial. Pushing this interaction beyond mere co-existence is important in creating interesting design.

Synergy by the integration of language, typography, and imagery can create a powerful effect. Language pulls the audience in. Creative typography produces a mood throughout the piece. Design can be done not only with clarity and efficiency but also with originality.

Even though we may not realize it, we are constantly surrounded by design. From the grocery store isle, to the billboard you pass every morning, our modern society is saturated with visual images.

Of course, some of these visual images are more successful than others. With this blog, I hope to share some of the work I find to be successful and inspiring in the field of design and beyond. I also encourage you to support artists locally and wordwide by purchasing fine art and handmade items.

Keep in mind art is very subjective. Not everyone will agree with my opinions, but this is part of the wonderful diversity of the human race and the diversity found in the arts.
