The Graphics Were the Best Part of the Oscars — and here’s the guy who made them — in just two and a half weeks! Talk about deadline constraints!

"The Oscars is the celebration of film, but there’s also a degree in which we can celebrate and tell the story of the filmmakers’ journey through design."

Lots of great insights in this article from Content Marketing Institute and I was honored to be included.

Building Brands in China

Lots to think about when you take a brand global, especially in a place as vast and diverse as China. Cultural and ethnic balances are different in every city — the challenge will be to understand and meet their needs, both rationally and emotionally.

This looks like an interesting book — nice to see real design principles applied to what truly makes the difference between a good visual and a so-so one:

Proportional Considerations
Layouts are like stages. The images, headlines, text, graphics, logos, patterns and colors that fill layouts are like characters on a stage.

Defining Boundaries
Boundaries are regularly added to help compositional elements hold together as unified entities and/or to set them apart.

Margins
How much space to leave? A question that needs to be considered with every design you create.

Dynamic Spacing
The spaces between and around the elements of a composition can also have an effect on its visual impact.

Symmetry vs. Asymmetry
Be decisive!

Aligning, and Not
Visual alignment lends notes of order to a design while non-alignment delivers connotations of a more casual nature.

Have to admire the efforts of these Canadian students standing up against the government's bid for a free logo using the hashtag #MyTimeHasValue .

More professionals should have the integrity to do the same and stand in unity against design contests! And the same goes for spec work, crowdsourcing, $5 "logo" services, apps claiming to replace designers, et al.

There is no box — just a big, nebulous, ever-expanding vastness that deceives us into thinking there are walls. Bust ’em down.
