6 Poses You Can Use to Avoid Camera Shake

Creative inspiration

I love it when these kinds of articles come around again and again. About every five or so years, many subjects like this get re-written. Learn and enjoy!
      Camera shake is the bane of just about every photographer’s existence. We invest in remotes, use mirror lock-up, and even trigger our shutters from afar with our smartphones, all in the name of getting photos that are as sharp as possible.

Shot Block: 36 Days of Type

Creative inspiration

36 Days of Type began when Nina Sans and Rafa Goicoechea, graphic designers based in Barcelona, first decided to challenge themselves to design something new everyday to later post them on their social networks, as a way to experiment new things while facing their routines by setting personal daily design challenges.
36 Days of Type is a project that invites Designers, Illustrators and Graphic Artists to express their particular view on letters and numbers of our alphabet. And we are loving it!

Netflix: The Art of Design misses the point

Creative inspiration

I have not passed judgement on this series yet -- it's certainly fascinating and a lot of fun to watch. Form your own opinion. But Anne Quito doesn't think so! In DESIGN WATCH, she writes :
      Abstract‘s biggest folly is its premise. It starts with the title. The word 'abstract' is a term that aptly describes the evocative work of artists such as Jackson Pollock and Wassily Kandinsky, but is totally wrong for design. Designers, in fact, are obsessed with the concrete: specs, measurements, budgets, deadlines, and countless other details. A designer’s creativity is always directed—the quest is to materialize elegant ideas to beautiful forms.
