Reimagining the 2016 Oscars movie posters - The Creative Edge | Font Lust & Graphic Desires | Scoop.it

What better time to kick off a fun community contest than right before the Academy Awards?! This time around, we turned to our designer community to reimagine the 2016 Oscars movie posters for the 8 “Best Picture” nominees, drawing inspiration from the minimal movie poster trend.


The results were great – and Mad Max and The Martian were definite favorites. Check out the winners and some of the highlights below!...

5 Little-Known Tools to Find Stunning Type Combos

5 Little-Known Tools to Find Stunning Type Combos | Font Lust & Graphic Desires | Scoop.it

Do you want to master successful graphic design? If so, you can't just focus on finding the right images and colors to use. In reality, one of the most important parts of effective design is ensuring that you find the right combination of fonts to use together. Using multiple fonts in one design is often essential, but it can also be challenging.


To marry typography in a design, you need to find fonts that work in harmony without looking too similar; fonts that offer contrast without fighting for the reader's eye. Most importantly, you want to find fonts that don't clash in some way that the other fonts look awkward. In order to find type combinations that pair well together, try out the useful tools below....

Jessica Contrera writes: "

The Internet is the place where nothing goes to die.

Those embarrassing photos of your high school dance you marked “private” on Facebook? The drunk Instagram posts? The NSFW snapchats? If you use social media, you’ve probably heard a warning akin to “don’t post anything you wouldn’t want your employer (or future employer) to see.”

We agree, and are adding this caveat: Don’t post anything you wouldn’t want hanging in an art gallery."
