10 belles pochettes d'albums (2014) | Culturebox Musique

10 belles pochettes d'albums (2014) | Culturebox Musique | Looks -Pictures, Images, Visual Languages | Scoop.it

"[...] Le vinyle revient en force et 2014 restera comme un cru exceptionnel en la matière. L'autre bonne nouvelle c'est qu'avec lui, la pochette d'album, [...] reprend des couleurs. Voici notre sélection, forcément subjective, des dix visuels les plus mémorables de l'année écoulée."

Monica MIRZA's insight:

Graphisme, illustrations, photomontages... quelques belles trouvailles !

Coïncidence : ma préférée est aussi celle du seul (groupe de) musicien(s) que je connais dans les dix proposées... quelques explorations musicales à venir, donc.

Monica MIRZA's curator insight, July 9, 2013 4:56 PM

Moteur de recherche qui permet de trouver des illustrations, photos, images gratuites et libres de droit au format PSD, AI ou encore JPG (images, dessins vectoriels et fichiers PSD), FREEPIK est plutôt efficace. Toutefois  les premiers résultats (résultats des sponsors) affichés sont issus de sites payants... modèle économique oblige !

Freepik reste néanmoins un moteur de recherche fort utile pour illustrer ses cours, sites web : clair dans sa présentation, et facile à prendre en main.

fabrice's curator insight, April 14, 2014 4:51 PM

je suis parti à" la chasse aux images" aujourd'hui ! Mais bien sûr que l'on peut faire des parties de chasse sur la Toile. En fait tout dépend du gibier. Et celui-là, si on respecte les droits d'auteur, il n'en souffrira pas. En fait j'avais complètement oublié que je l'avais déjà accroché à mon tableau de chasse ; il faudra que je vous montre les "autres...."

Bientôt .

Sélectionnez une image : d'un clic d'un seul, vous la verrez transformée à la manière d'un tableau (6 reproductions en négatif, sur fond de, 6 couleurs différentes) du célèbre pop artist américain...

La photo illustrant un exemple d'utilisation saisissait l'écart important entre la taille du moineau et celle de la roue d'une Fiat...

Monica MIRZA's insight:

"A Cinemagraph is an image that contains within itself a living moment that allows a glimpse of time to be experienced and preserved endlessly.

Visual Graphics Artist Kevin Burg began experimenting with the .gif format in this style in 2009 but it wasn't until he partnered with photographer Jamie Beck to cover NYFW that Cinemagraphs were born. [...]"
