visual research

Research based on Sara Carneholm materials.

Visual research, chasing knowledge wisdom and inspiration and suddenly you realize that the world is so big and so different, but there are things that unites all the creative people, lets take a look at some that I found to be the most interesting:

 http://www.littlescrapsofpaper.co.uk/Toni-Grisoni – screenwriter tells about active research, that is vital for creation, go out side and walk, observe and generate new ideas.

in this site I found out so many various font styles and it is very important  to chose the right one for your message, because that has an enormous impact on your text perception.http://typostrate.com/tagged/quotes tumblr_nct0p3fp2b1qgnue7o10_400

http://www.portlandsketcher.com/ found also light and nice sketchbook, and of course the community itself, a lot of enthusiasts that gather together and exchange ideas, I think is very important for development.

21666354236_23572af37e_nThey organize urban sketching in cities all over the world. Since  2010  more than a thousand people have attended classes taught by  team of instructors.

  • Do the sketchbook
  • work on portfolio because  it’s a great chance to assert again how good your eye is – through composition, image selection, color choices and clever creative touches.

This one I think is a good site to search for advise when creating a portfolio, some of them are here > http://www.itsnicethat.com/articles/squarespace-2

“perhaps the simplest element of documentation centres around what you actually want to show as well as how you’re going to do it. Karen Jane, lead designer at Wieden + Kennedy London has a neatly simple rule of thumb: “Get to the good stuff quickly,” she says. “Your site is like a shop window so show off the work you want to do more of. Curate your project selection to be the finest reflection of you, your craft, and your judgement. So if you have work that you aren’t 100% proud of just don’t show it. One rotten apple can taint the batch, and you really only need to show a few strong projects to get across what you do.”

“Personal projects as well as commissioned work. “It says a lot about you as a person and your passion for what you do beyond being a job,”

– the text that appears on your site has a part to play in creating the overall impression readers take away. It may not be the deal-breaker but it’s a great way to re-affirm your creativity, professionalism and way of thinking.

Who did the work? What did it involve? When did it take place? Where was it seen? Why did the work take place?

Rob Peart says: “You should establish the context—what was the brief, what were you asked to do? What is the work supposed to achieve?” This is invaluable when looking at design work in particular. You can also follow that idea to its logical conclusion, to say how effective something was and/or what impact it had.

Have a look at the copy on your site and think about every sentence, every word. Does it need to be there? Does it add something? Is it self-indulgent? It’s a good idea to run it past someone else as well; that killer line you think makes you look amazing might well be expendable.
