Phil Bradley's weblog: The trojan horse of Getty 'free' images

Phil Bradley's weblog: The trojan horse of Getty 'free' images | Visual Design and Presentation in Higher Edcuation | Scoop.it
There's been lots of discussion in blogs and on Twitter about Getty's offer to make images available supposedly for 'free'. The only problem is that they're not free, as Karen Blakeman points out in her blog post on the subject. While on the surface of it, it seems to be a lovely kind gesture, I would caution anyone who is thinking of using the service to consider it very carefully.

Design System Fundamentals - Hack Design

Design systems create a bridge between designers and developers. They describe the rules, constraints, and principles of your company’s design language. Design systems aren't exactly new. If you've ever visited New York City, there's a good chance you've benefited from the subway design system to navigate around—officially named the New York Transit Authority graphic standards manual, designed by the infamous Massimo Vignelli. Design systems don't just provide brand guidelines, they provide a way to consistently implement functional design. In today's incarnation of design systems, it's expected that they provide one source of truth for code, along with documentation and design resources. For teams building digital products, design systems can improve workflow efficiency and enable teams to deliver a better experience to customers.

LearnHack #5: 7 secret resources for images in e-learning courses

LearnHack #5: 7 secret resources for images in e-learning courses | Visual Design and Presentation in Higher Edcuation | Scoop.it

The Internet is full of stock photos, and it’s never been easier finding a good-looking image that goes well with the topic of your learning content.

However, there’s a huge leap from good to great. Content deserves great images. If you’re a bit picky (and here’s why you should be), searching for a perfect image can easily take you more time than writing the content itself (read about writing e-learning content in our LearnHack #3). On top of that, the best images are usually copyrighted or at the very least come with a price tag.

Fortunately, there are some websites that are packed with high-quality creative photos that can be used free of charge.

Before you rush to the list below, don’t forget to bookmark this page; sooner or later it will prove to have been a great—not just good—idea.
