Graphic Design can change your life.

Graphic design can change your life from Edenspiekermann on Vimeo.

I posted this last year on blackboard forums but it seems rather dead these days. This video is such an inspiration and has a lot of really valid points. I love listening to Erik Spiekermann's design process when creating typography comparing it to music for example. It is fascinating and I would recommend every designer should watch this at least once.

Visual Literacy : Judith Wilde

When this brief was first posted my first instinct was to reserve the recommended reading list books from LISS's new library. The book I've found most intresting however has been Visual Literacy by Judith Wilde. This book has quite a few exercises and intresting concepts that my lecturer Tony covered in his lecture.

This book has been a massive source of inspiration for my Black & White brief.
