Daily Inspirations no. 220

They say the more you know the more you understand how little you know. The same seemingly paradoxical situation can be noticed in art as well. No matter how many portraits or landscapes have already been painted or photographed; every new one is always a new discovery and a new masterpiece, if it was created with talent and creativity. Every day Cruzine magazine publishes inspirational images with different landscapes or nature photographs included, and every next day when we return to the same theme, it still looks fresh and offers a lot unique works we have never seen before. Nature is so diverse that photographers like Suren Manvelyan and Jean Slavin will always have enough sources for inspiration and objects for their photography work. Another eternal theme is a portrait and again the interest of wide public and artists to this topic will never fade away. Just have a look at the shots made by Robert Jaso and Andrey Yakovlev and you will understand the secret, which makes portrait art eternal and always timely.

Daily Inspirations no. 219

There are so many important, interesting, and noble professions in this world! Being an artist or a designer is not just a profession – it’s a gift, a calling, a mission, and a blessing – all at the same time. This activity is really spiritual, and it is always carried out rather for the sake of our souls than to serve the needs of bodies. It all makes creative arts still more important and necessary for the whole human race. Cruzine magazine team see their calling in making art as close to people as possible. That’s the reason why we start our day and offer you the same opportunity to begin a new day with contemplating the contemporary art pieces gathered in our daily inspirational sets.

40 Clever Yet Creative 404 Error Designs

404 error means that the file/page a user want to view cannot be found. This error is one of the most, if not the most, common errors we run into browsing the internet. Hate is or love it, this gives webmasters the opportunity to show their creative side. We all have to have a little fun sometimes right? On of the most important factors to keep in mind when designing a 404 page is to get the users attention, and help them navigate back to your website.

Many bloggers overlook their 404 page, leaving them looking unappealing and plain(we are guilty of that, working on it as you read). When this happens you should be prepared, because this might be the last time that visitor views your website. Do not let him/her leave the website without even showing them what you have to offer. The least you could do is provide a back to home button somewhere on the page. Here are some handy tips to keep at mind while designing your very own 404 page.

  • Keep it simple: Don’t bombard the visitor with crazy info or anything that will scare them away. Minimalism usually works well!
  • Use graphics, images, and illustrations: Be creative, funny, and friendly. Many websites take the funny approach and make their page hilarious to look at.
  • Provide a search bar, and other links: Lead the user away from the page and show them your content. Be the guide, because they are lost.
  • Say Sorry: It might not be your fault something went wrong, nobody is perfect. Just remember to be apologetic to show the user that you care.
  • Explain why they are there: Believe it or not my mom has no ideas what a 404 page is. As shocking as that sounds you have to keep at mind that everybody on the web does not know everything you do.

We hope that the tips above will help you navigate in the right direction with your design. To help you out before you start, we collected some of the best 404 pages we could find. Let’s hope these inspire you! Oh and don’t forget to tell us in the comment section which one you like the most. I think my favorite out of all of these was the Dropbox 404 page.

Daily Inspirations no. 218

Jason Mraz, an extremely talented young singer, once wrote a song called “Life is Wonderful”, where he said, “It takes an egg to make a hen; It takes a hen to make an egg; There is no end to what I’m saying.” This seems to be a universal wisdom, which can also be applied to art. Let us say it this way: it takes art to make art, because art itself is a source of inspiration, library of knowledge, depository of ideas, and a storeroom of instruments and techniques. There has always been a strong bond between the art already created and the art to be created in the near or far future. At Cruzine magazine we believe in the existence of such bond, and we make our own modest contribution to maintaining that link by sharing different art works with our audience of designers, photographers, illustrators, and simply fans of art and design.

Daily Inspirations no. 217

Someone from the gurus of the photographic art once said: “The camera is an instrument that teaches people how to see without a camera.” Indeed, how many new details, shapes, shades, and interactions a single photograph can reveal to us. Stopping the time and freezing the movement, camera works like both a time machine and a microscope to show us what the human sight would never capture on its own. And here comes another quote about photography: “A photography is secret about a secret. The more it tells you the less you know.” This may sound like a conflict of interests, but the truth is that many of the human greatest achievements stemmed from some conflicts…
