As designers, we all make mistakes. Some mistakes are minor, some are major. Some of them are accidental, and some are the direct results of our poor decisions and actions. Well, I recently made a very big mistake. Read on...
This is part 3 of the "What an Animal" series here on Design Informer. Since Thanksgiving is in a couple of days, today's showcase will feature turkeys.
The turkey has always been associated with Thanksgiving. If you want to know why, don't ask me. Just look it up on Wikipedia or something. Let's take a peek at 20 fantastic and bizarre illustrations of turkeys.
This is the second edition of Wallpaper of the Week here at Design Informer. This week's wallpaper is entitled Ideas are Powerful. The whole piece was inspired by a quote from Napoleon Hill. The design uses light pastel colors, and it is quite playful. Make sure to view the large version of the wallpaper so you can read the small caption.
This is part 2 of the "What an Animal" series here on Design Informer. Today's showcase will feature the lion.
The lion is perhaps one of the most feared animal in the animal kingdom. The lion is known as the king of the jungle. I have always been fascinated by these powerful and fierce creatures. Let's look at 15 ferocious illustrations of lions.
Thanksgiving is one of my favorite times of the whole year. It's a time when our families get together to have some food, fun, and fellowship. During Thanksgiving, there are some things that I try do as a graphic and web designer and I would like to share those 5 things with you.
We all have our favorite designers. One of my favorite designers happens to be Michael Heald, the founder of Fully Illustrated. Michael Heald is an award winning graphic and web designer. He has won multiple awards, as well as being featured in some top web and graphic design magazines.
Heald's work is spectacular. The thing that impresses me about his work is the variety of different styles that he has mastered. Not only is he a master of illustrations, he is a great web designer as well. His web designs are beautiful. That is why he has had the opportunity to design websites for the biggest games out there, including the top iPhone game, Fieldrunners.
Every week, we will be giving away a free wallpaper here at Design Informer. These wallpapers will be created by the Design Informer. Once in a while, we will also accept reader submissions for wallpaper of the week.
This week's wallpaper is a colorful wallpaper called Cosmic Shapes. It was inspired by the work of James White. If you are interested in achieving the same effect, you can view the tutorial here.
