Today I’d like to talk about something that could appear far from the graphic designer world: meditation and its positive effect into creative process.
I’ve heard about Vipassana several months ago and I was immediately intrigued. The word “meditation” in this particular case is pretty restrictive… It’s more of a stylelife, and it’s based on living in touch with your inner-self (24/7).
Being used to always give our entire attention to the outside, we generally forget to take a look inside of us. It may sound like a trivial and new-age concept, but Vipassana is deeply connect with your body’s and mind’s wellness. That’s where our creativity comes from. More…
2 weeks away ‘till I moved from android to iphone (unrepeatable insults from the audience), I’m discovering the wide range of services (and limitations) the apple universe gives to its users.
Personally, one of the worst bug is being unable to use bluetooth to exchange documents between iphone and desktop.
With iCloud, Apple launched Streaming Photo. This service syncs automatically all your picture taken by iphone to your pc.
But what if I need to move pictures on a computer without my iCloud account, and maybe the usb cable is lost God knows where?
I generally don’t worry about smartphone apps in this blog, but I have to make an exception this time. It’s very common for graphic designers to use either iMac or Macbook to work. It’s not the same story for smartphones.
How many of us are using android smartphones (either cause we think they’re the best choice or cause we don’t want to sell a kidney to have one)?
The common issue having an android phone is not be able to use iCloud. More…
Choosing a software for our job is sometimes a matter of popularity, usually a quality assurance for the user. But take a look around once in a while, can yield benefits.
First Dropbox and then Google Drive, have become the most used services in cloud computing. I want to talk now about a less famous service, but extremely versatile. it can give the impression of a standard cloud tool, but at a better look it’s more an integration to the other two above.
How did I end up having such a God – Forsaken job? Easy to say: in this kind of job I can daily use my curiosity, creativity and passion for art!
Being a graphic designer has its drawbacks: extreme need of coffee, sudden rudeness, violent fights with my computer and a big effort in explaining what my job is about!
My professional background is pretty wide. A big amount of hobbies helps me thinking “out of the box”. I know it’s weird to say, but everything that draws your attention, enrich your creativity.
I love cinema, listen to music, read and be informed, cook, travel and get to know new places and people.
Beside all this, I still pursue my hopeless mission to learn how to play a guitar..
Be a designer is like be a sponge: you need to absorb, listen, learn and put in practice at the end.
It’s absolutely important to be aware of everything around us, to grasp it and understand it. A creative mind should always be awake.
The inspiration can arrive in different ways: a chat with friends, a movie scene, a painting from an art exhibition or a simple leaf. Anything is better than just stare at a computer screen.
I’m looking for new people to work with. I’d like to share my experience and make new ones. I’d like to discover new ideas, your ideas, and develop them into new projects. I want to be in front of a blank page and fill it with everything that comes out of my mind.
What I do
With the coming of the Internet Era, Drawing is not just drawing anymore. Knowing how to draw on paper and how to retouch it on a computer is essential.
The key of success in websites is not only the graphic design, but also the neatness of the navigation and the simplicity.
