The Art of Color Coordination

Such a helpful infographic. Beyond helpful for web design.


Via Martin (Marty) Smith, Serkan Karaman
Susan Kay Daniels's insight:

This is an amazing infographic. Color design theory is so fascinating - yet simple once it is understood. This graph gives you a quick look at some fast design colors from which to select. I recommend this as a Re-scoop!

Jill Applebaum and Megan Sheehan | The Ad Duo Who Gave Oreo An Unforgettable Social Media Twist

Jill Applebaum and Megan Sheehan | The Ad Duo Who Gave Oreo An Unforgettable Social Media Twist | Social Media Art | Scoop.it

The Ad Duo Who Gave Oreo An Unforgettable Social Media Twist

To celebrate Oreo's 100th birthday last year, Jill Applebaum and Megan Sheehan, then creative directors at ad agency DraftFCB, released a witty, photoshopped image of the classic sandwich cookie on Facebook every day for 100 days. "Every day was a scramble," says Sheehan of the creative process behind the Daily Twist. The duo not only had to find a trend worth seizing upon, but they also had to find "ideas that would translate visually, as a cookie." The payoff: transforming Oreo into a clever real-time brand with personality, commenting on such cultural events as the Mars Rover landing and gay pride. Though the formal partnership has ended--Applebaum has moved on to JWT, while Sheehan is freelance--the impact on the billion-dollar brand has not: During the Super Bowl blackout, Oreo tweeted an on-the-fly ad with the line "You can still dunk in the dark."Slam dunk.

[Illustration by Ray Smith]

Susan Kay Daniels's insight:

What a whirl-wind of creative activity these two exhibited. And, on a daily basis, these wonderful social media artists created Oreo visuals that portrayed the trends of the day.

 

This is also another example of the "social media firehose" and how fast one has to jump on it to stay on top.

 

Here's to "Dunk in the Dark." Yeah!

 

If you think you have a hard time keeping up with Facebook's constant changes, you aren't alone. I feel like everyday is a new adventure on Facebook.

Clker.com provides a royalty free public domain clip art in vector SVG & ODG format and in image PNG format. You can easily embed images in openoffice.org .
Susan Kay Daniels's insight:

Don't know if this falls within the category of "Social Media Art" per se, but this looks like a fun place to start if you are new to online graphic art. It is totally online royalty free public domain art. Share, upload, draw...and more.

 

One of my favorite social media types of art are the little figurines that are multi-colored such as the ones shown above. I curate them and have quite a collection on my computer. I should upload them and share them with every one one of these days.

 

When I first started out in social media several years ago, I had a dream about going into another dimension to meet my dopple ganger.

 

I was met by a bright pink figurine similar to that shown in the picture above and he/she put an arm around my shoulder to lead me in and introduce me to that dimension. Imagine that, a social media art dream. Hee-hee.

Some Retro Game Curating Tips | Dromstruction

Some Retro Game Curating Tips | Dromstruction | Social Media Art | Scoop.it

I come across a lot of game systems and cartridges that don’t work simply because they are dirty or were not cared for properly, and as anyone who has ever blown into a cartridge to make it work, finicky cart-based games can be more frustration than they’re worth. To remedy this I’ll be going over some simple ways to get that old NES, SNES, or other cart-based game system (and its games) to help get a little more enjoyment from your favorite games from yesteryear.

 

Susan Kay Daniels's insight:

Curating retro games? Who knew? I don't know much about curating games, but if you're interested, this is a good place to start. Enjoy!

Let’s talk about the Arts and Social Media - IJAD Dance Company

Let’s talk about the Arts and Social Media - IJAD Dance Company | Social Media Art | Scoop.it

My excuse is that I’m not ‘arty’. I studied the history of art at university, I like to look at art but the creative side I like to leave to those who have the talent. As an audience member, I am firmly placed in my role as spectator. And this is why the In-Finite project appealed to me so much. There are people who are being creative with social media (that don’t feature on the first page of search results) and in doing so, are bringing the audience into their projects. Ijad Dance Company have been interpreting technology since the 90s and now it’s the turn of social media. And by using these opportunities of communication – instant, one-off exchanges that take less than 140 characters (or 6 seconds with my new love – Vine) – offer an alternative to staring, faceless audiences.  The In-Finite project asks people to donate secrets (how anathemic to social media!) in order that a dancer might interpret it, all amounting to a performance, streamed all over the world. Audience participation which isn’t threatening, a marriage of new technology and creative, responsive, accessible art.

Susan Kay Daniels's insight:

This is an incredibly interesting article about how this dance company uses social media to create dance. Amazing concept!

Susan Kay Daniels's comment, March 16, 2013 7:15 PM
That's an interesting comment. I'm 59 and been laid off twice in the last three years - employers don't want to pay the higher insurance rates for us older gals nor do they want to pay us what we're worth. So, I am developing my blog to cater to people who are new to social media. I have over 45 years experience operating computers, have been online since it's inception and I want to give my knowledge to those who need it. It may surprise you to know that it isn't the baby boomers who lack the skills for online social and graphic skills. I've operated computers since 1973. I think the lack of computer knowledge, in terms of age groups, is more prevalent in my mother's generation. But, by golly, she is 82 years old, owns a iphone (grumbles about it a lot) and upgraded from a lap top to a tablet last winter. She's had a desktop in her office for 20 years. And, she's on Facebook (grumbles about that too :). And, we're from a small town in Eastern Oregon (yes, we have real life cowboys :) So, I guess the point I'm making is as long as people are willing, technology can be learned at any age. Thanks for commenting on my newsletter. Warmly, Susan
Anne Bosworth's comment, March 16, 2013 10:23 PM
I know those folks too, Susan. I don't doubt that you are exactly right about the willingness, creativity, hard work, and tenacity of older folks using technology. But I suspect that plenty of late Boomers are finding themselves surprised by what they need to do to get a second look for an interview, and yes, disappointed that their worth is so severely undervalued. I have several friends, myself included, recently laid off and we've all been a bit taken by surprise to find that replacing our employment and our salaries is so difficult. I'm sure we will all be learning how to build and refine our social résumés. By the way, I love your post and your knowledge. You professional creds and tenacity remind me a great deal of a woman whom I know, admire, and cherish very much. Blessings, Anne.

How Many People Use Wordpress: Statistics, Percentages, and Comparisons - BrandonGaille.com

How Many People Use Wordpress: Statistics, Percentages, and Comparisons - BrandonGaille.com | Social Media Art | Scoop.it

A look at the current statistics of WordPress users and most popular plugins.

 

 

Susan Kay Daniels's insight:

Brandon Gaille uses a Yoast infographic in his blog post to demonstrate the amazing proven statistics about WordPress. Although this post uses statistics that are two years old, you can see the rising popularity of WordPress at that time - the interest has only risen since then.

 

Let's take a look at more current statistics:

 

WordPress.com for Statistics 2013

 

Fact: Today, WordPress.com reports 65,683,760 WordPress sites in the world.

 

Fact: Over 368 million people view more than 4.1 billion pages each month.

 

Fact: WordPress.com users produce about 41.5 million new posts and 53.2 million new comments each month.

 

Fact: From TechCrunch to TED, CNN, and the National Football League, WordPress.com users span a broad range.

 

Visit: http://en.wordpress.com/stats/

 

 

Consider the statistics when deciding which platform to use. I use WordPress for the convenience, the plug-ins, the ease of development, the built-in SEO, and, it's people friendly with a low learning curve.

 

Beginners can get a web site online in a few days. If you have a background  as a web master, you can get a web site online in a day.

 

It's that easy.

 

Then, if you want to get more creative - you can get down to developing and designing something that is your own unique site unlike anyone elses.

 

Warmly,

Susan Daniels

Social Media Art

Social Media Art | Social Media Art | Scoop.it

"This article entitled ”Social Media Art in the expanded field” written by Ben Davis, discusses the relationship between traditional art and the social media, and the different forms of art or non art that comes from this bond between the two.

 

Davis points out the importance of social media and how this took over any other initiative to promote artists and artistic creativity. Throughout the text, the author makes reference and gives explanation to numerous terms that come out from art and social media. Davis defines art a product which is brought forward by a creative process and a creative thought by the artist, which sets it aside from another ordinary, every day object. On the other hand he defines social media as a virtual world where everyone meets and talks and that it is also a platform for all kinds of advertisement."

 

http://www.artnet.com/magazineus/reviews/davis/art-and-social-media8-4-10.asp

Susan Kay Daniels's insight:

Jeremy Amaira takes an intellectual approach towards defining and relating social media art and traditional art. He points out that the social media venues are a natural platform for advertising traditional art.

 

I find it interesting that he refers to social media art as "non art" yet accepts it as a unique art form. From my perspective, social media art on some levels is non-professional art. However, for myself, I have seen my graphic capabilities grow over the last four years just as I have seen many others do the same. Some people just buy other people's art and use it.

 

After 10 years of working online - the last four submersed in social media, the greatest joy I get from the online social media marketing world is being able to create a large part of my own graphic art. It's a creative outlet and I sometimes have to tear myself away from it to get back to the business of marketing through social media.

 

I am going to have a series of posts to bring my readers information on the many wonderful social media venues online that have forums and groups for learning more about graphic art, online art and social media art.

 

Social Media brings us a wonderful new world of cohesiveness, information, lost lost friends and family. One of the nicest pieces that social media has brought about is the new art form "Social Media Art".

Not to say I don't appreciate Bob Dylan because he was an icon and lead a generation through a turbulent time, but I just never cared for his singing "style". I like his writing though.
