If you think typography is simply about personal whim this infographic should go a long way towards disabusing you of your ignorance.
gwynethjones's insight:

90% of Graphic Design is Typography - That's why you need to pay attention to it and care about it. You don't have to lust over it like I do [blush] but you really should try & mix it up!

Selecting color schemes is not limited to presentations. How about your signage and bulletin boards in the library or digital flyers and posters used to advertise and promote the library programs and resources. Even your website may be spiffied up a bit with a new color selection.

Top 15 Most Used Cliche Images in Web Design vs. The Unicorn of Death

Top 15 Most Used Cliche Images in Web Design vs. The Unicorn of Death | Font Lust & Graphic Desires | Scoop.it
Does it ever happen to you when you looking on a site to have the impression that you saw a particular image somewhere else? I bet it does and I bet that I know what are those images.

Mark Strozier's curator insight, November 26, 2013 10:18 AM

This is a great article to introduce you to the Unicorn of Death. The UoD gets attention.


The UoD has nothing to do with the "Top 15 Most Used Cliche Images in Web Design", but if I used any of the images highlighted in the article you'd skip right past this post.


In good design there has to be something of value to put your attention in a chokehold, otherwise it's cheap decoration. Design cliché's are just that.


You can thank the folks who set the standards at microstock sites like iStock, Dreamstime et,al.


From experience, I've had images rejected because they were deemed "..not stock-worthy..." Considering the images that are stock-worthy, that's not such a bad thing.

Color Theory for Designers, Part 1: The Meaning of Color | Smashing Magazine

Color Theory for Designers, Part 1: The Meaning of Color | Smashing Magazine | Font Lust & Graphic Desires | Scoop.it
Color in design is very subjective. What evokes one reaction in one person may evoke a very different reaction in somone else. Sometimes this is due to personal preference, and other times due to cultural background.
gwynethjones's insight:

Quick great adivce to understand the psychology of colour.

Ex. "Use warm colors in your designs to reflect passion, happiness, enthusiasm, and energy." 

 

Ever wonder why you respond to certain images? This explains it and shows you how you can make it work for you! See? That's why I love black, yellow, & turcquoise!
