India Celebrates its Republic Day. I do my part as a designer.
The job of motivation.
Oh no, this is just the beginning :)
Thanks to advanced cell phone technologies, ever since we have had cameras in them, we have stopped losing a lot of data (memories) we otherwise would (most probably) have forgotten by now.
So here’s what I and my then flatmate Yudi made on Divya for ‘body art’ in 3rd year of our graduation. (Now an illustration, or is it?)
The theme was Aquatic something :P
Recently while browsing the net for design websites and blogs, I came across this short film entitled Powers of Ten, which I now know is one of the most influential and beloved design movies ever made by Charles and Ray Eames in 1977 for IBM. I rate it 5 star. A must watch.
Powers of Ten takes us on an adventure in magnitudes. Starting at a picnic by the lakeside in Chicago, this famous film transports us to the outer edges of the universe. Every ten seconds we view the starting point from ten times farther out until our own galaxy is visible only a s a speck of light among many others. Returning to Earth with breathtaking speed, we move inward- into the hand of the sleeping picnicker- with ten times more magnification every ten seconds. Our journey ends inside a proton of a carbon atom within a DNA molecule in a white blood cell. POWERS OF TEN © 1977 EAMES OFFICE LLC (www.eamesoffice.com)
A guilty conscience is more honorable than regret.
I ask one question that either makes you feel good that you are one of those who care, or places you in front of a mirror where you meet someone you cant face, and you cant run from either. That someone is your own conscience.
I intend to shake the conscience of every single individual that reads this one question.
You may lie to me. How do you lie to yourself?
This was the graphic i made for flutterhead facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/pages/Flutterhead/142934032428782)
And i also had to make a new blog header for 2011. So i made it from this graphic’s elements itself :)
Though i liked all of them, but blue had been there last year. So I chose the first option :)
