GUIDANCE 2011

I love the cover of this magazine. The colors and the way the image is repeated in different sizes adds interest. This website also shows a great example of a magazine layout.  Now with a little experience in InDesign, I can understand what they did and appreciate it. The layout is very simple but effective, keeping the image of the image above flow through the whole article.

Mister Brainwash Dot Com

After watching the documentary Exit Through The Gift Shop, I was curious and searched both Banksy and Mister Brainwash. I came across Mister Brainwash’s website and it made about as much sense as he did. I personally think it is very poorly made and very confusing. It consists of a bunch of buttons that you press to redirect you to different pages. This website and Mister Brainwash work very well together, they are both crazy.

AMC giftcard

Giftcards are another example of design that is overlooked. This giftcard for AMC theaters is very simple and has all the information someone needs to know exactly what it is for. Since popcorn is always associated with movies, the designer used that image to illustrate what the giftcard was for: going to the movies.

Godiva Assorted Chocolates

I also saw this box in the store and I liked the design of it. Its has light and airy colors that go along great with the coming of spring and easter. It also gives a very sophisticated look with the color scheme and the thin lines use to outline a couple flowers. The box fits in very nicely with the look and feel of the store.

Nuts about Chocolate

This is a pretty simple poster that I saw in the Godiva store. The only thing I don’t understand about the poster would be the picture of the pretzels. When I see this, I would expect to see chocolate and a variety of nuts that are combined with it. ¬†Unless there is something I don’t know about this chocolate bar, like how it might contain pretzel pieces, I don’t understand the purpose for the pretzels in this poster.

Glennz Tees Designs

I have posted some of this artist’s work before and I love him. his works always put me in a good mood and make me laugh at how he perceives things. I love how he takes things and sayings and puts them in a literal sense.
