Always trying to imagine or even predict what the future of planet Earth is going to be, always curious about how the other worlds and planets may look like, designers of the science fiction art offer their individual visions of the human kind further evolution and other civilizations existence. Multiple examples of such creative work are presented in our Science Fiction Worlds showcase below.
Each illustration is unique and special, each of them depicts and reflects the thoughts and emotions of a graphic designer; yet, all of them have something in common: science fiction worlds are represented with sophisticated architecture, where hundred-storeyed buildings tower above the clouds right into the skies, unbelievable cars and flying vehicles soar among the sky-scrapers, and the bright orange light of the setting sun, glowing through the mist and smog that cover the cities, creates the atmosphere of doom and darkness, emphasizing the shadows of the buildings and gloomy appearance of the cities.

Every designing work should be displayed to the audience. Especially, if it is close to an art piece, combining both visual and functional features, such as in web design projects. Of course, after going live in the Internet any web site receives potentially the greatest audience ever. However, it is also important for a web designer to spread a word about his work and share his experience within the professional community of other web designers and programmers. To serve that purpose a great number of web design show rooms and galleries of web templates exist. Today, we want to direct you to 30 best web showrooms, where you can present yourself and your work in the field of website design.
Participation in the online communities with similar interests is important. It is a chance to receive a spot, where you could demonstrate your designing skills and achievements, receive professional and unbiased feedbacks on your work, and, of course, learn a lot from other members. Concept development, visual design, graphics use, CSS application, and programming tricks – you can get fresh ideas in any of these aspects of web design. Besides, visiting any of the sites, included in the Cruzine Top 30 list, will give you a powerful charge of inspiration and fresh ideas to use in your own work. Finally, having your work featured by web design showrooms will help you improve your web presence and add points to your sites ranking, of course.

Eastpak Design Competition – 1st Place
This project was based on the brand concept “built to resist”, by making an analogy between the Eastpak bag and a treasure hidden for centuries in the bottom of the ocean.

We are pleased to announce that our new site for Fiorentin Studio is now live. This site redesign focuses heavily on the custom photographs with an interactive category navigation as well as an integrated photo gallery that allows the client to organize, title and upload his own work.
Dynamic range in photography is what stands behind the commercial term “contrast ratio” or the ratio between the brightest and the darkest parts of the image or a device for capturing or displaying images. For comparison, paper dynamic range equals to about 100:1 ratio, that of a plasma display is about 5000:1, and the dynamic range of a real-life environment can be estimated with the ration up to 100000:1. High dynamic range or HDR photography strives for reaching the contrast as close to reality as the most progressive technical means allow. That is why, HDR photographs always look very real to human eye, featuring high color depth, exceptional detailing, and almost perfect distinction between bright and dark parts of the image.
To show you the present achievements in HDR photography, Cruzine prepared this showcase with animals images. Nature is the most gifted and talented artist ever known on Earth. Variety of colors, shapes, and textures, created by Nature, still remains at an unbeatable record level for human artists. However, centuries of our evolution did help us to approach the highest standards, set by Nature. Today, HDR photography represents one of the most progressive imaging techniques. Looking at the HDR photos, such as those, collected below, creates the feeling of looking at the real-life objects and sceneries. Photography, perhaps, has never been so close to reality as it is now, thanks to such powerful techniques as HDR imaging. Cruzine welcomes all our readers to view this gallery of animals HDR images and enjoy the power of photography progress and evolution.
