My favorite things I’ve read online this week;
“Put simply, design is all about ideas. Creative, brilliant and original ideas. To come up with these ideas, designers need inspiration, which can and should come in a number of forms. “
“Naturally, I read the manuscript if there is one. While I’m reading I keep a running list of keywords, signifiers, and themes in my notebook. From there I create some free-association lists of words, trying to decide on a general direction for the look.”
“So what is a Single Purpose Blog? Well, it’s exactly what it says really. A blog about a single thing, one subject; it serves one purpose, and one purpose alone.Unlike a blog on one broad topic, say football or fashion; SPBs are about something super specific.”
Paul Willoughby, creative director of independent film magazine Little White Lies, says: “People are always going to have their personal space, their flat or whatever, and they’re going to want to surround themselves with personal things. I think magazines will always have a place on people’s shelves.” Assuming, Willoughby adds wryly, the internet doesn’t somehow bugger up the shelving industry too.
(Hopefully this will be a weekly occurrence every sunday, along with a quote every saturday still. Just fancy giving my blog more consistency at weekends)
