Dadaism; The meeting point of all contradictions

Dadaism; The meeting point of all contradictions | Design Arena | Scoop.it


Dada's innovative approach to typography, photomontage, negative white space, layout, letter spacing and line spacing has played a significant role in the development of communication design.


Of course, many aspects of their style, technique and aesthetics were borrowed from Futurists. In particular, Dada adopted Futurists art of typography.


The Dada publications, including manifestos, magazines, and posters, reveals that graphic design was indispensable for establishing the movement's visual identity, and its strong design signature.


Given the rebellious nature of Dada, the Futurists' typographical experiments were more conducive to the spirit of Dadaism's subversive nature than to their own enthusiasm for depicting the energetic pace of machines.


This is perhaps why Dadaism contributions became more prominent. According to Tristan Tzara in the Dadaist manifesto: 

"Every page should explode, either because of its deep seriousness, or because of its vortex, vertigo, newness, timelessness, crushing humor, enthusiasm of its principles, or the way it is printed."


This reflected exactly the founder of Futurism, Marinetti's virulent sentiment when he wrote:

"I undertake a typographical revolution directed especially against the idiotic and nauseous conception of old-fashioned books of verses ... Better still: my revolution is directed against what is called typographical harmony of the page ... I intend to redouble the expressive force of words." ...

50 Top-Drawer Websites to Learn Web Design and Development

50 Top-Drawer Websites to Learn Web Design and Development | Design Arena | Scoop.it


Looking to learn web design?


This list of 50 best hand-picked websites will be your guide in filtering the good from the bad of learning web design online.


You don’t need me to tell you that online education has obvious benefits over traditional education, such as affordability, ability to learn at your own pace, immersive communities and in most cases tangible end results.


What you may not know is that designers who are skilled in HTML/CSS/JS earn more and live longer and happier lives (at least 2/3 of this statement is actually totally made up).


But you came here to see if there are some resources in this post that you can learn from. So let’s get to it.

Amphibious Robot Snake


Japanese company HiBot, specialized in robots for extreme environments, will unveil the latest version of its ACM-R5H snake robot at the International Robot Exhibition (iREX) this week in Tokyo.


HiBot says the new model is more modular and easier to customize that earlier versions.


You can easily attach more segments to the snake's body to make it longer, or remove segments if you need a shorter robot. Users can also use payload compartments in the snake's front and rear modules to add custom sensors or cameras.


The new ACM-R5H uses HiBot's advanced robot controller based on an ARM Cortex-M4 processor...

Yahoo! Smush.it™

Yahoo! Smush.it™ | Design Arena | Scoop.it


Smushed 3.67% or 2.23 KB from the size of your image(s). How did we do it?


Smush.it uses optimization techniques specific to image format to remove unnecessary bytes from image files.


It is a "lossless" tool, which means it optimizes the images without changing their look or visual quality.


After Smush.it runs on a web page it reports how many bytes would be saved by optimizing the page's images and provides a downloadable zip file with the minimized image files.


Do not link to the smushed images on Smushit.com since they will only be available there temporarily.


Instead, download the zip file containing the smushed images for your web page and replace your image files with those files.


>>> ALSO:

Smush it comes in different flavours:

  • You can upload a bunch of pictures in your browser
  • You can provide us with a list of image urls or
  • You can get a Firefox Extension or a cross-browser bookmarklet to optimize the images found on any web page


Saving bytes has never been so easy - you point us in the right direction, and we'll do the rest for you.


A ZIP archive with optimized images will be generated for you.

Sneak peek of Macaw >> The code-savvy web design tool... Not Free but worthwhile

Sneak peek of Macaw >> The code-savvy web design tool... Not Free but worthwhile | Design Arena | Scoop.it


  • Stop writing code. Start drawing it.

Macaw provides the same flexibility as your favorite image editor but also writes semantic HTML and remarkably succinct CSS. It's time to expect more from a web design tool.



  • Fluid canvas and grid

Macaw is engineered for fluid widths. Resize the canvas and your grids and elements will update accordingly.



  • Responsive Breakpoints

Designing for different device sizes is tricky. Macaw lets you define arbitrary breakpoints and tweak properties for that specific width.



  • Rich Typography

Macaw gives you access to your system fonts, a full library of web fonts and even allows you to pull in Typekit fonts. It also provides useful calculations like characters per line.



  • Interactivity

Building clickable prototypes in Macaw is as easy as clicking on a target, but it doesn't stop there. You can also add more dynamic interactions with the scripting palette. Macaw will even autogenerate templates and jQuery variables for you.



Design more with less.



  • Global Styles

Macaw lets you save common styles so that you can quickly apply them to elements across your document. Once applied, you can update all of the elements at once with the style editor.



  • Reusable components and assets

Have a complex element that you need to use on multiple pages?

With Macaw you can store it in your library as a component and drag it on to any other page in your project.



  • The engine that learns as you design.

We wanted Macaw to write code you'd be proud enough to hand to developers. Current applications rely on trendy frameworks, export rigid positioning and generate ridiculous IDs. We think designers and developers deserve better. Macaw's powerful, patent-pending engine is called Alchemy and it can do some incredible things.



  • Consolidation

Alchemy analyzes every possible selector to describe your document and determines the most succinct way of using them based on logical criteria: applicability, specificity and semantics.



  • Absolute to Static Conversion

Macaw offers designers the freedom of absolute positioning within the interface but will convert to a static document flow upon export by calculating the necessary margins, padding, floats and clears. It's the best of both worlds.
