The winners of the second International Drone Photography Contest, organized by social network Dronestagram with support from National Geographic, have been revealed! Drone photography depicts a new vision of the world, with stunning images taken from low altitude, near field. It is a new photographic language and a new way of discovering things and landscapes that we know, or that we thought we knew.

5 roles every great designer must play

creative graphic arts & design

All the world’s a design studio, and all the designers merely players. They have their log-outs and their log-ins, and one designer in their time plays many parts. Designers need to do more than just design.
      In-house designers are becoming more and more prevalent, and they can no longer work in isolation. That means collaborating with departments a designer might not have worked with at an agency, such as marketing and business development. The more diverse the roles of your coworkers, the more diverse you yourself have to be.

Don’t under-estimate the value of good graphic design.

As a business owner, publisher, or editor, you address all sorts of pressing issues during your workday. The most difficult might be budgetary in nature, tempting you to skimp on areas such as skilled graphic design. Don’t do it. Here’s why.
      Graphic design can be a powerful tool, communicating much more than mere visual embellishment. It functions as a bridge between a prospective customer and your business.
