One of the challenges of logo designing is that it should combine two seemingly opposite values simultaneously. On one hand, design of a logo should be vivid and rich to be able to capture the attention of the audience, but on the other hand, logo should be as simple as possible in order to be clearly recognizable and easy to remember. After all, everybody knows the wise saying, claiming that simplicity is nothing but the ultimate level of sophistication. In addition to definite artistic values of a simple logo design, it is also a very effective and successful way to represent an organization or a product. Indeed, most of world known brands have simple logos. So, why don’t we use the available experience and get some inspiration from the existing simple logo designs?

“I am a self-taught freelance photographer. I was born in Toronto, but moved to Montreal in 2001, and will be forever grateful to my high school French teacher.
I love to experiment with different styles and techniques, both in-camera and in my digital darkroom. Faithfully capturing a scene is less important to me than finding that little bit of mystery, evoking a certain mood, or telling a story. Through my photography, I like to explore of the ethereal, the surreal, the whimsical, the mysterious, and the beautiful. I like to consider each photograph a little poem for the eyes.”
We live in the world, where physical objects are tightly interconnected with certain non-material or incorporeal phenomena. Ideas and inspiration are examples of such non-material world representatives. Indeed, both an idea and inspiration are invisible and we cannot feel them with any of our sense organs. Though there is hardly a person in the world, who would deny or question the existence of ideas or inspiration. Actually, any idea is nothing but the very first stage of anything; it is the beginning of all our deeds and creations, while inspiration is the key motivating force that helps a human transform an idea into a particular object or action in the physical world. Art is perhaps the best example to illustrate the process, where idea is born in the mind of an artist, and then cherished and raised to eventually become a mature and pretty much tangible art creation: a picture, a song, or a poem…

When you look at the lyric poetry heritage of any nation in the world, you’ll quickly identify two major topics the absolute majority of all the poems were devoted to. These core themes, that have always inspired poets, are love and nature or, to be more exact, the power of love and the beauty of nature. Today we want to focus at the beauty of the nature, because it is nature that offers so many visual images, which are pleasing for the eye, soothing for the heart, and inspiring for the soul.

Everything what we do, or what we have, or how we live or how we manage our life should have a reason. However, it is not necessarily that this everything should be appealing, great or liked by everyone around. People have their own tastes in doing or creating things, which may be attracted by one group of people while refused by the other. Style or design is one of those life spheres, where thoughts and tastes of the people may differ.
Michael Kenna’s work has often been described as enigmatic, graceful and hauntingly beautiful much like the Japanese landscape. Kenna first visited Japan in 1987 for a one-person exhibition and was utterly seduced by the country’s terrain. Over the years he has traveled throughout almost the entire country constantly taking photographs. From these many treks the book Japan, featuring 95 of these photographs, was conceived.
Where do the creative ideas come from? After hundreds or even thousands of years this question still remains open: some people believe, an idea as well as its companion inspiration is nothing but an example of some divine influence; others persuade that this is just a random product of biological brain activity; there are also people, who believe that an idea can be “planted” into the mind of a human (think about ideological weapon, propaganda, or sophisticated marketing techniques for manipulating mass consciousness)… Well, though we are not going to manipulate anyone’s mind, we still cannot help trying to plant some creative ideas into the heads of our readers: through our daily showcases of inspiring photographs, illustrations, digital paintings, and other forms of modern design-related art we want to spread the idea of artistic approach to design and show that today anyone can contribute to the further development of design, either by creating some works or by sharing his personal opinion about a particular trend, movement, or creation.
