Inspired By: Bea Feitler

In this fifth instalment of Inspired Design Decisions, Andy Clarke will teach you about the pioneering female art director Bea Feitler. Feitler was the art director of Rolling Stone magazine and put a naked John Lennon on the cover in the 1970s. She was co-art director at Harper’s Bazaar and created the famous space helmet cover in 1965. But despite all her incredible work, Feitler has been described as “the pioneering female art Director you’ve never heard of.

Andy will teach you about Bea Feitler’s iconic work and show you how to apply some of her design techniques to the work you make for the web.

In this webinar, you’ll learn:

  • how to crop and position images in bold new ways,
  • how to use blending modes and CSS and SVG filters to create striking results.

And of course, all Andy’s examples are fully responsive and look fabulous, whatever the device.
