I Love Design

Period.

I Offer You

Web Design, Illustrations, Print, and the occasional back rub.

Beware. Certain materials may contain graphical elements that expose high levels of creativity, causing possible strokes of artistic radiation. You have been inspired.

Call me Lucy.
I am a sans serif superwoman and my only kryptonite is facing poorly designed websites, book covers, and cereal boxes.

I hate being too serious. In all of my designs, there's a sense of personality -- Humor makes the world go round.

One of my favorite pastimes is playing dress-up. And that's what I intend to do to each element of my design. Relax, this is the fun part.

After each finished design, I like to take a step back and critique my work. Sometimes, I might shed a tear or two.

Portfolio
My collection of work ranges from school projects, client work, to spontaneous mischiefs on a daily basis.

There is always work to be done. Work fast but wise, work well but consistent. Just do work.

The Power of Words

Date: 23-Jan-2012     Author: JuicyCow

Words hold truth. Lies. Happiness. Animosity. Desire. Words equate meaning, both spoken and unspoken.

They can be a means to an end, or an end to a mean. Words are measured not by volume but by impact. Combined, words can bruise hearts, ignite wars or relinquish everlasting affection. “I love you” “It’s a boy” “Time of death”. These words transform us for a lifetime. Words themselves create opportunities, they can be supportive or they can hurt more than sticks and stones...

Is Body Copy Necessary?

What is a head good for without a body? Pictures, logos, and headlines serve as the face of good advertising; they scream “STOP look at me”. But they don’t serve any other purpose than to dazzle the reader. The real message is in the body copy. You want to adorn your body, dress it up, but not too much.

Too much copy, you end up with a sweat suit, while too little may leave you feeling slightly naked. Good copy is informative. Great copy leaves the curious satisfied, but yearning for more...

Daily Quotes
Design can be art. Design can be aesthetics. Design is so simple, that's why it is so complicated. -Paul Rand

Paul Rand was a well-known American graphic designer, best known for his corporate logo designs. Educated at the Pratt Institute and the Parsons School of Design, he was one of the originators of the Swiss Style of graphic design.

Everything is design. Everything!
Don't try to be original; just try to be good.
Form without relevant content,or content without meaningful form.
Without aesthetic, design is either the humdrum repetition of familiar clichés or a wild scramble for novelty.
Without the aesthetic, the computer is but a mindless speed machine, producing effects without substance.
So that is the design process or the creative process. Start with a problem, forget the problem, the problem reveals itself
Design is the method of putting form and content together. Design, just as art, has multiple definitions, there is no single definition.
The artist is a collector of things imaginary or real. He accumulates things with the same enthusiasm that a little boy stuffs his pockets.
