Found this image going viral on Facebook. Makes one wonder what our priorities really are…and where I may or may not want to invest for my retirement. Then again there isn’t much information to say what all this really means other than to say we use more ink than we do human blood…which may be a good thing. Maybe it’s a good thing that blood doesn’t cost so much? What do you think? Are we as human beings be being taken for granted by the cost of ink? Again I don’t know the context or the research behind this infographic…but it certainly gets you thinking.

As students we’re all looking for the best exposure, and what better way than with the ever increasing infinite internet? The only problem is where to go to make a secure online portfolio? With help from my professor and fellow students we’ve got it down to our top 3. Here are a few suggestions for you:
Behance — standard for creative portfolios and great for networking
Squarespace — Nice option with more advanced features, but requires a fee
Cargo — Best used for personal portfolios
I don’t know about anyone else, but I often do judge books by their covers. Literally. It’s the story you encounter before the story ever begins. I’ve been notorious for buying attractive (I was going to say “sexy” but thought you may think I was taking it a bit too far) books regardless of their content. Why not right?
Anyway, book design is a large part of daily graphic design encounters. Speaking as an avid reader, I’d rather have my eyes rest on a beautiful design rather than an eyesore. Otherwise it’s like dragging nails across a chalkboard, but with your eyes….yeah…something like that.
Here is a list of sites to help inspire your inner book drunkard and designer.

Doing art during my senior high school years I’d consider myself to be somewhat creative, but tell me to design something on the computer and I freak. So many programmes, so many features I swear it’d be easier to design by hand. However I’ve come to feel my opinion has become a minority in today’s society where manual design has become devalued and our society has become dependent on the ability of digitalisation and design stemming across a variety fields.
