Imagination has no boundaries, and so does (not) design. According to Wired.com, the rapper used the website emoji.ink to create these portraits of celebrities like Kim Kardashian, Wiz Khalifa, Miley Cyrus, Jerry Seinfeld, as well as Larry David, Rihanna, among others.

Before and After

Photoshop has long been seen as a polarising force in the design and art world. On one hand it’s the sliced bread, the how did we survive without it, the paradigm shift, the singularity. On the other hand it is the Frankenstein’s monster, the kryptonite, the child of Mammon.

Taking it back to basics!

Surfing across the worldwide web I managed to stumble upon a Vicki Turner, a British designer and illustrator who clearly has a true passion for blogging and the simplicity of it.

Design is the creation of hope.

Design is the creation of a plan or convention for the construction of an object or a system or in the case of the oxford dictionary: The art or action of conceiving of and producing a plan or drawing of something before it is made. It is in everything and anything you can see, touch, or even conceive. It is fundamental, yet has not always been as highly regarded as it is now. Currently it seems as if, to lift a phrase from my good friend Jenai, working in media, marketing an

Print is still alive!

So there seems to be a new spark of life for the print design industry, with People for Print declaring a new publication, “Print isn’t dead”.
