Tools | Photoshop Is Still The Best Option For Designers

Tools | Photoshop Is Still The Best Option For Designers | Designer's Resources | Scoop.it
The future of Photoshop as an essential tool used by web designers to stylize websites has come under some debate in recent days.
Mark Strozier's insight:

Fanboys make me cringe, however there are a few things I'm practically evangelical about. Photoshop has always been on that list of praise.  


I like the option to be able to design and code in the browser, however [for me] the genesis of any web/print design always starts in Photoshop. Adobe's Creative Cloud greatly simplifies related design tasks.

Fiverr & the $5 logo

Heavens to Murgatroid, Evuuun! | Designer's Resources | Scoop.it
Mark Strozier's insight:

Can you name them all without googling?


This is a partial line-up of Hanna-Barbera's cartoon characters from the 1960's & 70's.


It's awe-inspiring to think of the production talent (and time) that went into these cartoons. 24 hand-drawn and hand-painted frames per second x 60 seconds x seven minutes (shorts - avg length) x 58 characters x number of episodes. 


Those animators were slinging a lot of paint! Heavens to Murgatroid, Evuuun!


ps: I could name only six.

Swarm control, autonomous flight and more from the brand's latest drone
Mark Strozier's insight:

The ability to shoot outstanding video footage, is taking a giant leap forward going into 2015.


The specs on GoPro's new Hero 4 are jaw-dropping-- UltraHD 4k video at 30 frames per second?! 1080p HD video at 120 frames per second?! WiFi & Bluetooth all in a box that weighs about as much as a Snicker's bar and priced at only $500?!


Jaw appropriately dropped.


Along with the continually improving camera technologies, drone tech is keeping pace and it's giving cinematographers options for new perspectives that up until a year or two ago were imaginable only with CGI.


To get a sample of the creative options this combination offers filmmakers and cinematographers take a look at PlexiDrone's video: http://youtu.be/hROA-vOyId4 ;

Building a Usable Style Guide for New Design Projects

Building a Usable Style Guide for New Design Projects | Designer's Resources | Scoop.it
When you think of creativity it can be expressed in many ways. Ideally a creative idea should exist in some capacity before the creator visits reality town and starts break dancing into his concept in the middle of Main Street.
Mark Strozier's insight:

A style guide, even for small projects, gives your client an Instruction Manual of how your vision for their product/brand should be used. It clarifies collateral usage to maintain consistency of message.


It also benefits the designer. Helping to make sure the elements you are using will work together across different mediums.
