Relativity: Surreal Paintings by Alex Hall | Inspiration Grid | Design Inspiration

Relativity: Surreal Paintings by Alex Hall | Inspiration Grid | Design Inspiration | Life in College | Scoop.it

“My new series ‘Relativity’ depicts individuals floating in time and space. I chose to paint the figures with no distinct faces so they would relate to every man and every woman. This particular series is a very honest representation of where I am currently in my own life. Having recently graduated college and being thrown off my feet into the real world, I was extremely overwhelmed. I still was not sure what path to take or which way to go in life. I began to realize that most people are familiar with this feeling of uncertainty. With that idea, I sought out to create a series that was a visual representation of an emotion that has been universally felt by all people: A sense of uncertainty, and ultimately struggling to achieve a balance in life.”

"We have fallen into the trap of equating a formal education with success and prosperity...  Despite what you’ve been told by well-meaning parents, teachers, clergy and other “learned” individuals and institutions; college isn’t the answer for everyone."

28 Creative PowerPoint and Keynote Presentation Designs | Life in College | Scoop.it

The stunning designs you'll find via this blog post are proof that it's not PowerPoint or Keynote that are to blame for mediocre presentations, but the way they are used.

Often it is the design of the presentation itself that does the trick. In an effort to help you put together a great-looking presentation, here are 28 examples of creative presentation designs using Powerpoint and Keynote." . . .
