Mark Ryden came to preeminence in the 1990’s during a time when many artists, critics and collectors were quietly championing a return to the art of painting. With his masterful technique and disquieting content, Ryden quickly became one of the leaders of this movement on the West Coast.
Have you ever thought about the border or the difference if any between the true art in its traditional sense and practical design, such as web design, digital illustrations, etc.? According to one of the definitions, “to design” means “to create or to execute in an artistic or highly skilled manner”. Obviously, there is a pretty tight connection between art and design, and these two words are practically synonymous. That is why talking about design, especially about its modern forms, such as graphics, photography, architecture, and others, we often mean art as well. One of the unique features of true art works is their ability to inspire; and isn’t it inspiration, which is clearly perceived when looking at the samples of modern design, such as those offered in this collection?

If you want to make your logo a star, there is, probably, no better way to do that than to use a figure of a star as part of your logo design. After all, simplicity is a sister of genius, isn’t it? However, simple design does not at all means plain, uninteresting, and tasteless design. Instead, logos, featuring stars, possess a particular charm, originating from the star shape itself, which is one of the most ancient and meaningful signs in the human culture. Star logos are often chosen by companies and individuals, brave enough to underline their leading position, or at least their urge for being leaders in their particular field. Having a star on the logo, in its turn, obliges to be in constant progress, to lead instead of being led, to explore and to conquer new areas and phenomena.

Once treated as the signs of wisdom and life experience, fashion for beards changed throughout the long history of the human kind. Today beards and moustaches are much less frequent than they once were. However, this only draws more attention to them and makes people with this type of face embellishment more notable and standing out of the crowds of our contemporaries, mainly preferring hairless faces. No matter why men decide to grow beards, either they do this based on some religious commitments or just following some kind of fashion trend, beards and/or moustaches are usually true signs of strong and vivid personalities.

With the progression of web building techniques and evolution of people’s perception of the web environment and its purpose, web design has made a significant transition from simple and static HTML pages to dynamic, multi-media rich websites, capable of interacting with visitors in a sophisticated way. It goes without saying that web design has never been a static or permanent code of rules or approaches to web content storing and presentation. It is an ever-changing phenomenon, which is highly sensitive to all the expectations and requirements of a modern web user.
