In this exhibit, the contradiction between individuality and uniformity is exposed through photographic viewpoint and stylistic analysis. Presented by Rotterdam-based photographer Ari Versluis and profiler Ellie Uyttenbroek. (Also see related YouTube video: Exactitudes - BBC Culture Show 2008).... More

Re-Sizer - Photoshop Actions

Posted under actions.

Re-Sizer - Photoshop Action PackRe-Sizer a Photoshop Action Pack was specially developed for enhancing photos and images from low to high quality. It claims to enlarge the size of photos up to 600% without the loss of quality, and apparently this little Action Set is legitimate. Getting best results with stock photos, in our estimate, it has the potential to save agency designers hundreds of dollars. Not to mention oodles of time if they can work more effectively with stock photo comps. Pretty cool demo site too.... More

TED

Posted under design events.

TEDDesigners always tout new ideas, approaches and new methods of thinking... But how much do they really embrace change? Why not test our ability to bend or blend with some of the industry's smartest thinkers, and hear out some new concepts and solutions. TED hopes to enliven our understanding of the biggest issues faced by the world, and desires to help create a better future.
