Defining design: going beyond disciplines

Defining design: going beyond disciplines | Professional Communication | Scoop.it
Asked recently what she saw as the single greatest driver of social change, Melinda Gates of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation replied: “Design.”

How has design, which many still associate largely with style and consumerism, come to be something one might look to for solutions to the most complex and challenging problems facing humanity today; problems requiring not just local fixes using clever design objects, but solutions that reimagine systems themselves? Are we, at this point, even still

How to Turn Your Bullet Points Into Visually-Engaging Elements

How to Turn Your Bullet Points Into Visually-Engaging Elements | Professional Communication | Scoop.it

Professional designers will advise against ever using bullet points in a deck: Bullet points act like bullets — they kill your presentation. However, this mentality can change if you transform your bullet points into a visual component of your presentation.

Why These Unique & Creative Text-Focused Websites Will Inspire You

Why These Unique & Creative Text-Focused Websites Will Inspire You | Professional Communication | Scoop.it

Typography is an important but often under-represented part of a website's layout. With so much focus being placed on the presentational aspects of CSS and the use of large images and media that choke bandwidth restraints; it’s nice to occasionally remember that textual content can also make an impact on users and their experience. Content remains king, and a few good fonts can make even the simplest of sites look smart - though not so many that you have to wait for ages for the text to be visible.

Because of this, I’m going to show you a few handpicked examples of sites that make their content look terrific, and why you should consider following their example in your own work. We’re going to take a journey of how elegant typography can make a site shine; looking at the bold, creative, navigational, simplistic and interactive content that makes the designer's voice speak volumes - so let’s get started!...
