Graphic Design Inspiration: GRYFFIN's album
Graphic Design Inspiration: GRYFFIN's album abduzeedoDec 19, 2018 Anxo Vizcaíno has been commissioned by Red Yellow Blue to create this collection of cover artworks for the first GRYFFIN's album (Interscope Records). Under the concepts and creative direction of Jordan Miles Rosenheck, they designed a series of portals that "are metaphors for having access to anywhere and anything we want, because we're made of everything". Each piece is related to a track that has been released separately, previous to the main album 'Gravity Pt. 1' containing 6 songs and of which cover is the door to this GRYFFIN's universe. They also went above and beyond, making a loopable animation for that one. Personally, I am a fan of Anxo's work. They have that space theme combined with a sort of surreal touch that you will find familiar to some of my early tutorials if you followed the blog since the first years. I highly recommend that you check out Anxo's full portfolio at http://www.anxovizcaino.com/ Graphic Design Credits Client: GRYFFIN Label: Interscope Records Agency: Red Yellow Blue Art direction: Jordan Miles Rosenheck Design and animation: Anxo Vizcaíno

Understanding Neo Minimalism in Graphic Design
Minimalism is a timeless design style. It uses the least elements and places them strategically to express more with less. Usually, minimalism is considered to be easier than the maximalist design. This is because it looks far less complicated visually. However, that makes it all the more difficult to put across the brand’s message with […] The post Understanding Neo Minimalism in Graphic Design appeared first on Line25.

Ode to Simplicity in Graphic Design Playing with Lines
Ode to Simplicity in Graphic Design Playing with Lines abduzeedoFeb 25, 2019 I am a fan of simplicity and for this post, I would love to share some artwork that inspired me for some recent personal projects. These are graphic design explorations using simple elements like lines and adding some deformation. It is a super simple effect, you can basically create it in Photoshop using the Displacement Map. The same goes if you want to animate it in After Effects. As I said, the effect is easy to be recreated, however, to achieve elegance and simplicity requires a lot of experimentation. Graphic Design

Graphic Design for Adidas Predator by Gordon Reid
Graphic Design for Adidas Predator by Gordon Reid abduzeedoMar 25, 2019 Gordon Reid shared a beautiful graphic design project for Adidas and one of their most iconic soccer (football) boots in history, The Predator. Adidas London wanted to create a range of new print, digital and social ads to mark the relaunch of this historic boot along with the launch of two new boots, the X and Nemeziz. Gordon worked with the strapline for each boot to create illustrated assets for each boot. Each created to compliment the culture, history and design of each of the boots. For Instance, the Predator played on more of a retro, bold and graphic feel, whereas the X artwork played on the enhanced speed element and Nemeziz was all about being agile. Each artwork was brought to life using a bold color palette and strong graphical elements that could be used throughout the advertising. Graphic Design

90s Look is Coming Back - Graphic Design Collection
90s Look is Coming Back - Graphic Design Collection abduzeedoFeb 19, 2019 We have been posting a series of posts featuring graphic design and web design work that, in a way, brings back the 90s in terms of aesthetics and style. It’s hard to define that, it might vary from person to person. For me, while the 80s was all about neon, futuristic computer-generated images with chrome, unicorns running across a digital grid, and of course the RGB colors. The 90s is the complete destruction of the form. Typography is pushed to the limit of being even legible, forms are deformed and distorted. You also notice some effects like when the CMYK colors are printed with problems in the alignment, with color leaks, light leaks, textures, and dirt. For this post, I would love to share some examples of this style. They are not from the 90s per se, however, they illustrate quite well what I just describe. Make sure to click on the link to visit the authors. Disclaimer, they are images I found on Pinterest. 90s Graphic Design Look

The Art of Graphic Design: From Creativity to Communication
Graphic design is a dynamic and influential field that plays a pivotal role in shaping how we perceive and interact with the world. It's the art of visual communication, combining creativity, technology, and psychology to convey messages, evoke emotions, and inspire action. In this article, we'll delve into the world of graphic design, exploring its significance, principles, and the essential skills every graphic designer should possess.
What is Graphic Design?
At its core, graphic design is the process of using visual elements, typography, and layout to communicate a message effectively. Whether it's a logo, poster, website, or packaging, graphic design is everywhere, influencing our choices and perceptions in ways we may not even consciously realize.
The Significance of Graphic Design
Visual Communication: Graphic design is the language of visual communication. It can simplify complex ideas, make information more accessible, and create memorable impressions.
Branding: A strong visual identity, crafted through graphic design, helps businesses stand out and establish a unique brand presence in a competitive marketplace.
Emotional Connection: Design can evoke emotions, making it a powerful tool for storytelling and creating connections between brands and their audience.
User Experience: In digital design, graphic elements contribute significantly to the overall user experience, affecting how users navigate and interact with websites and apps.
Principles of Graphic Design
Balance: Achieving visual equilibrium by distributing elements harmoniously within a design. Balance can be symmetrical or asymmetrical, depending on the desired effect.
Contrast: The juxtaposition of different elements (e.g., colors, fonts, shapes) to create visual interest and hierarchy.
Emphasis: Highlighting a specific element or message to draw attention and guide the viewer's eye.
Unity: Ensuring all elements in a design work together cohesively, creating a sense of completeness and purpose.
Proximity: Grouping related elements close together to signify their connection and separate unrelated elements.
Essential Skills for Graphic Designers
Creativity: The ability to think outside the box and come up with original, innovative concepts and designs.
Typography: Mastery of typography is crucial, as it directly affects readability and the overall impact of a design.
Color Theory: Understanding the psychology of colors and their combinations is essential for conveying emotions and messages effectively.
Software Proficiency: Proficiency in graphic design software like Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop, and InDesign is a must.
Communication: Effective communication skills are vital for understanding client needs and conveying your design rationale.
Adaptability: The graphic design landscape is constantly evolving. Staying up-to-date with trends and technologies is essential.
The Creative Process
Research: Understand the project's goals, target audience, and context before diving into design.
Conceptualization: Brainstorm ideas, sketch rough drafts, and develop a design concept that aligns with the project's objectives.
Execution: Bring your concept to life using design software, carefully selecting colors, typography, and visual elements.
Feedback: Share your design with others for constructive feedback and iterate based on the input received.
Finalization: Polish your design, ensuring it meets all project requirements and is ready for delivery.
Graphic design is more than just aesthetics; it's a powerful means of communication that influences our daily lives. From advertising to branding, graphic design shapes how we perceive the world around us. By mastering the principles and skills of graphic design, designers can create visually compelling, meaningful, and impactful designs that resonate with audiences and leave a lasting impression. Whether you're a seasoned professional or just starting, the world of graphic design offers endless opportunities for creativity and expression.
