Holy illustrator find! Have any of you seen this guy’s work?

His name is Christoff Niemann. I’ve seen one or two of these before and may have even posted one here, but once you see the breadth of his imagination… WOW! Each one requires separate analysis — so wonderfully inventive and conceptual.

This link goes to his “Sunday Sketches:” http://www.christophniemann.com/entertain/sunday-sketches-3/
Be sure to click on each image for separate mini-portfolio slideshows — then go to his full portfolio for much more!

Isn’t that great, +Katherine Tattersfield? And the navel orange drawing is just one of those ideas that’s been waiting to be discovered.

The great designer Bradbury Thompson and the magazine as symphony:
“He so mastered the rhythmic tenor of his pages that one couldn’t help hearing music while turning them.” ~ Steven Heller

Bradbury Thompson (1911–1995) was the maestro when it came to the magazine as symphony. Steven Heller opens up two issues of his Westvaco Inspirations.

The Poster’s Place on the Planet
Some interesting dialog on the poster which, according to Elizabeth Guffey (Professor of Art & Design History, State University of New York at Purchase), is “in the midst of a global renaissance.”

“The poster materializes visual communication… From Cuba to Nigeria, Iran to China, this familiar material form is used in surprising and innovative ways. They help us to rethink our own understanding of design and its place in the world.”

I think posters are one of the most powerful mechanisms of graphic design — first, to pull you in at a glance, no matter the venue — and then as a lasting piece of wall art. And really, who doesn’t LOVE a great poster?!!

Elizabeth Guffey, Professor of Art & Design History, State University of New York at Purchase, is the author of Retro: The Culture of Revival (Reaktion Books, 2006), editor of the journal Design and Culture (Bloomsbury) and her latest book is Posters: A Global History (Reaktion Books, 2015). The latter is a serious analysis of the poster phenomenon that addresses the past and future of a venerable form. I asked Guffey …

Happy Monday, everybody! Here’s more proof that to do great work requires little more than coffee, a napkin, and an idea.

Going above and beyond has always been a great differentiator.

Why? So few have the talent, the skills, the experience and... the willingness to do the work.

I Hate the Phrase "Good, Unique Content" in SEO

If there was a sweet fluffy squishy lion care bear on our property, we wouldn't care either +Katherine Kotaw! That is the sweetest thing. We think you should take notes +Paul Biedermann. No one is going to yell with that wonderful bundle of fur with you!

• Branding  - 
 
It seems design can also play a very important role here. What do you think?

With the global economy heating up, the competition for talent is fierce, so many organizations are strengthening their employer brands. Recruitment advertising is not enough.

60% of the CEOs surveyed said this responsibility lies with the CEO — a strong indication that employer branding will gain greater strategic importance.

“Marketing is also seen as playing a more important role in shaping the employer brand. Because social media has intertwined company reputation with the customer experience, consumer-facing communications are increasingly important in shaping the employer brand. Many firms now highlight the quality and dedication of their employees in their consumer marketing, and this naturally affects how others judge them as potential employers.”
