Hello! I am a graphic designer/artist from Cleveland, OH. I wanted to share a social networking art event that I started a week ago on Facebook. It is called Season of the Skulls. What it basically entails is you post on the page what you would like a particular
skull to look like, then I will draw, photograph it and repost it on the page with your name tagged on it. The only thing I ask in return is to post your skull as you profile pic on Halloween. It is just something fun to do for me, and also a great opportunity
to receive ideas from other fellow artists and designers!! So, if you are interested, please check it out on Facebook!
Does anyone ever come on these boards?
wondering if any freelance/contract graphics people have any professional proofers/editors they can recommend. don't need someone to write copy, just to proof for typos, grammar and clarity.
Rumor has it, that AIGA members are not happy with their current discussion board options. I had a hard time finding this conversation baord and I was wondering what everyone on this site thought.
With Facebook lauching their IPO and making its creators billions of dollars I'm still wondering are advertisers really making money by advertising on Facebook? Or are advestisers really making money through any kind of social media site? I have looked on
the web and haven't found one success story where an advertiser advestising on Facebook has generated profits though they continue to throw billions of dollars at it just because of their large user numbers, numbers that show that over 80% of its users that
are on Facebook are not only overseas but is on a mobile device. Recently GM stopped advestising on Facebook and it makes me wonder as someone who uses the Internet I as I'm sure many do hate advertising on the web. From pop-ups, spam, and many videos on the
web forcing the user to watch an advestisement before the video I wonder how effective is online advestisement? Or is word of mouth still king? What I'm trying to say is what good is a user, fan or follower if they don't fully buy what you're selling and if
they don't what does it say about social media as a whole? How effective is social media really?
I saw this film recently on Netflix that follows Hayao Miyazaki and the efforts of Studio Ghibli. It's a lovely documentary—very spare and reflective—directed by Mami Sunada. The film reveals Miyazaki's passionate and sometimes painful struggle to help his audience rediscover their childlike selves. All while he himself struggles to...

AIGA’s “Justified” competition
recognizes case studies that demonstrate the value of design in a clear,
compelling and accessible way. Effective design will nearly always
reflect the powerful emotional draw of creativity, inspiration and
simplicity; and yet
today, for design to be truly effective, it must also serve the client’s
specific needs. With this
in mind, the 2012 “Justified” competition honors 18 exemplary case studies of
design solutions, each of which successfully demonstrate the value of design.
