Underwater photography

Brian Skerry is a photojournalist specializing in underwater and marine-related subjects and stories. Since 1998 Skerry has been a contributing photographer for National Geographic magazine, covering a wide range of assignments. Skerry’s ability to pursue subjects of great diversity is unique within the field of underwater photography. His focus includes nearly everything in the sea, from whales, billfish, tuna, and sharks to fleets of deep-water shipwrecks worldwide. While on assignment, he has lived on the bottom of the sea, spent months aboard fishing boats, and traveled in everything from snowmobiles to canoes to helicopters to get the picture. He spends months at a time in the field, and in the course of any given year frequently finds himself in environments of extreme contrast from tropical coral reefs to diving beneath Arctic ice. Among his feature stories for National Geographic are “Deep Science,” “Beneath Irish Isles,” “An Eden For Sharks,” “Squid: Beautiful and Beastly,” and two cover stories, “Harp Seals: The Hunt For Balance” and “Still Waters: The Global Fish Crisis.”

Daily Inspirations no. 138

Spring is often said to bring the new life to the nature: the bare ground acquires a new blanket of young grass shoots, the pointed branches of the trees become fluffy with new leaves; birds return from the hot countries and start singing again… Looks like we also need to be renovated in a way – perhaps, we need some new clothes; maybe we need some new lifestyle; sometimes, we feel like changing our activities; and many of us need the new way of thinking and new fresh ideas.

Typography in the Art or Art in the Typography?

Typography was initially developed to better serve the purpose of improving the visual perception of a printed text and thus delivering textual content to the readers more effectively. The art component has always been present in typography, especially at the dawn of its development. Take a look at any ancient book and you’ll see how artfully every glyph was drawn and how richly the text was decorated. Later with the development of mass printing, font designers concentrated more on the practical characteristics of a text rather than on its artistic values. However, today, with the rapid and active development of digital typography and its popularization among visual designers, typeface creators are again ready to fascinate and impress us with the font designs, which clearly belong to art.

Free Old School Fonts for Cruzine Readers

They say the best wine comes out of an old vessel. Following this ancient wisdom, we can now say that the best achievements in modern typography or font design come out of the old school fonts, which created a reliable background for the formation and further development of typography aesthetics. However, speaking about old school fonts, it is important not to perceive them as desperately outdated typefaces, which do not fit the current needs of modern designers and illustrators. The variety of old school fonts is able to impress with the richness of choices, which can suit perfectly different types of design projects – from book cover designs to web sites and to post card designs.

Artworks by ZSO

Hello, I’m ZSO. (On paper you may also know me as Sara Blake). I’m an illustrator and fine artist living and loving in New York City. ZSO (pronounced |zō|) is a collection of letters that I find aesthetically and phonetically beautiful. Together they make sound much like “so,” the adverb which means “to such a great extent.” I am a person of extremes, for better or worse (most often the latter), so the ring of it was fitting, and the moniker has since stuck for good. I graduated from New York University’s Gallatin School of Individualized Study with a concentration in Graphic Art and Postmodern Studies—I’ve been working in design and art direction ever since. With a background in advertising I now work as a freelance illustrator and exhibiting artist.

Meet Generation C – A Generation of Creative Generalists

Since a little over 7 years, I’ve been introducing myself as a Creative Generalist to all and sundry to little effect. The term although widely the most appropriate title is yet to be truly understood or fathomed in context with the generation that grows with every advance in technology today. In fact just the other day, I was asked via the newly adopted Facebook Questions how I would define a person who creates content for the print, web and mobile mediums. Answers ranged from Digital Content Designer to New Media Warrior and some old skool and new age funk thrown in for good measure. But the question really is about how this new generation of digital creatives is remaking the way we buy, sell and communicate with the world.
