Every designer needs two fundamental things for his work: an idea, which is often called inspiration, and an instrument or a material to turn that idea into some physical real-life object: a sculpture, a picture, an illustration, etc. While inspiration is often universal, instruments and materials are usually very specific and refer to particular field of art or design work. Our major interest, as the online magazine, is about digital forms of art, such as web design, digital art, typography, and video. Thus, the tools here are also of digital nature: fonts, digital shapes and brushes, stock images, templates, themes, etc. Offering both inspiration and freebies to its readers, corner of art builds kind of full support environment for digital designers and artists – environment, where inspiration is shared as well as useful tools and resources are distributed for free.

It’s been quite sometime since our last Creative Photography roundup, Jun 10, 2011 to exact. If you did not know by now, this is a common series of roundups that we usually do monthly. This collection is mixed with a variety of creative photos and photo manipulations. We spend a large amount of time searching the web, and hand picking the most creative photographs. What we love most about each and every one of these photos, is that they have a hidden meaning that you have to see/figure out. I love photographs that tell a story, and the following achieve that task perfectly. We hope that you will appreciate this form of art, and get inspired to create your own!

With this project, the PlanetSolar team has two objectives. Firstly, to show that current technologies aimed at improving energy efficiency are reliable and effective, and secondly to advance scientific research in the field of renewable energy. PlanetSolar has already made technological developments possible in many fields, such as the production of composite materials and structures, and also the production and storage of solar energy (or electricity). Each stage in the project and each day that PlanetSolar sails will enable science to progress. Conserving our planet by promoting solar energy, energy efficiency and eco-mobility is at the heart of this project. This is a great opportunity to advance our knowledge. Our initiative will also inform the general public and make them aware of the importance of renewable energy.
When an artist sees a chipping wall of a shabby old house, a piece of rock in the middle of the ocean, or just a girl, running in the field, he perceives the reality in a bit specific way, which differs from the perception of an average man. Actually, an artist is capable to see a bit more than just a reality – his imagination and abstract thinking help him to see the rich and bright history such an old house have witnessed, an eternal struggle between such elements as rock and water, or the ultimate genius and the wisdom of the humans’ Creator. Photographers and painters, definitely, belong to such kind of artists. Their skill to recognize the art in the most usual and unusual places is unique, and their works are always full of inspiration for other artists and true artistic value for satisfying the tastes and demands of the general audience.
