Your colour scheme is what makes you stand out, what makes you recognisable and what makes you you. If you get it right it can attract an audience and gain you a following. It will also make people remember you, which is one of the most important functions of a logo; without that there isn’t much point.

“Each day of prejudice is another day without freedom.”

Even after doing time, former convicts are still seen with prejudice by the labor market. Each negative response that an ex-convict receives in a job interview makes him feel trapped to his past. There are so many and so frequent stories that it would be possible to fill in a calendar with all of them.

Even after doing their time, ex-convicts are still being seen with prejudice by employers and society. With doors to the labor market always closed, many of them end up going back to crime, whose doors are always open. That’s why Artplan joined AfroReggae NGO and created Segunda Chance, the only employment agency in the world made by ex-convicts for ex-convicts, that promotes guidance and forwards them to the labor market. The operation is led by ex-drug trafficking leaders that serve as an example, receiving each applicant in person and getting in touch with HR directors and entrepreneurs to start partnerships which result in job vacancies.

Top 9 Bookmarking Tools for Designers

We all find cool stuff online that we want to save for later – but we never remember it and most bookmarking systems on browsers become messy and cluttered very quickly. This is where bookmarking tools shine; they allow you to keep track of anything you find online, organize it and store it for you, being ready to access anytime and from any device with internet access.

With the mountains of information and content online, it has become a lot more difficult to pick through and find what you’re interested in. Search engines only go so far; they are confined to keywords which are good for specific searches, but not so good when finding varied topics under an interest or niche. Some bookmarking sites not only allow you to keep track of any interesting things you find online, but they also to share your interests with others and see what they have bookmarked as well. By tagging and annotating your bookmarks, they become organized and categorized with other users’ bookmarks, in a process called folksonomy.

For designers, bookmarking is extremely useful, especially when looking for content fitting one niche, industry or type of design. It allows you to connect with other designers, find and store tutorials, interesting examples, useful resources, tips and tricks, and so much more. Whether you’re on your phone or on a computer and you see an article, a tutorial, a photoset or simply a cool site that you want to refer to later, bookmarking tools are real handy.

You can keep any interesting resources you find online for later use, and you can organize them depending on style, project, or whatever classification is best, and share them with your friends and find other bookmarks similar to yours.
