The truth about Design and Artwork

In order to print something OR view it on a website – you have to have a piece of artwork for the printer to print. . . . or the web master to code.

And that piece of artwork has to be the correct dimensions, resolution and colour mix to match the final process it is being used for.

The technicalities for understanding and creating artwork are skilled . . . particularly in some high complex print processes.

However . . . being technically skilled is not the same thing as having a great eye for captivating visual layout and fantastic graphic design. . . .

That takes a whole different kind of creative ability . . . . . Continue reading

Would you go back to the future?

What is tomorrow? . . . Wednesday? . . . yes . . .  October 21st. . . yes . . . 2015. . . .

Oh but its so much more than that. . . because exactly 30 years ago tomorrow a young man called Marty McFly travelled 30 years in order to sort out the terrible mess his kids were making with their lives.

Tomorrow is “Back to the future day” . . . I pricked my ears up when I first heard that because the back to he future series are my favourite films of all time. . .

remember this?
