RECYCLING CONTAINERS

Tetra Pak wanted to teach people that juice and milk cartons shouldn’t be just
thrown away, but collected and reprocessed. The easiest way to encourage kids
to do something good is turn it into a game. Containers for schools became
recycling monsters - bright plastic things that children were happy to feed empty
cartons.

LOGOS
HIDDEN MESSAGES

Sometimes there is more to a logo than there appears to be at first glance. Maybe
this helps a logo to be more interesting and memorable.

LOGOS
ANALYSING LOGOS AND THEIR CONCEPTS

Roxxie BLACKHAM is a Graphic Design student at a University in the UK.
One of her assignments was to
ANALYSE LOGOS -
"Write down your gut feelings behind each selected logo first, then find out why (if
you can) it was designed like that and what the designer intended - find out what
audience they intended to target, why the colour was used, what the designer
intended to convey, etc.."  See her responses regarding TWITTER, APPLE and
others.

ILLUSTRATION / PHOTO MANIPULATION
THE BEATLES

If you wanted to see how many ways one 'thing' can be visually represented, you
couldn't do better than choose
The Beatles. The images on the following pages
barely scratch the surface when it comes to  looking for
examples of photo
manipulation, and illustration using an enormous range of styles, media and
techniques

NOW UPDATED TO
50 BRILLIANT PINTEREST BOARDS

Pinterest is a brilliant place to get visual and creative inspiration - but where do
you start? Here is a selection of the best
Pinterest boards covering a range of
design topics.

Being entirely image-focused and an enormously popular site, there's an awful lot
to wade through. These boards have been selected and grouped under graphic
design, illustration, logos, packaging, typography, branding and print design to
make it easier.

FOR TEACHERS
Questions related to the 21st century
demands that teachers need to reflect upon

The wide embrace of technology in education and the growing use of digital
media in classrooms have expanded the meaning of literacy to account for these
digital innovations. Both teachers and students are now required to develop a
proficiency with the use of technology tools and be able to leverage the power of
web tools in their teaching and learning.

COMMENT
YOU WILL BE ABLE TO RESPOND POSITIVELY TO MOST OF THE QUESTIONS, WHICH
SHOULD CONFIRM TO YOU HOW GREAT VISUAL COMMUNICATION, DESIGN AND
TECHNOLOGY STUDIES ARE - THEIR PLACE IN THE CURRICULUM IS ESSENTIAL AND
YOUR STUDENTS ARE EXTREMELY WELL SERVED BY YOUR TEACHING OF THEM.

First and foremost, the cover should
reflect the vibe of the magazine, that is
the most important thing! Magazines are
about the feeling, the atmosphere - they
are a lot more than just content.

29 THINGS YOUNG
DESIGNERS NEED TO KNOW

Doug Bartow, principal of id29 (a brand
and communication design studio), has
been long regarded as a mentor to many
designers through his firm's intern
program and active status in the design
community - so some references only
apply to the USA.

"Throughout the years, I’ve collected
questions and have tried answering many
of them as an ongoing personal project.
Here are 29 of my thoughts on how to
approach and interact with our culture as
a young designer, in no particular order."

FURNITURE DESIGN
STACKABLE BOXES

The collaboration between two
independent designers explores the mix-
and-match quality with a graphical
approach. 'The Room' collection consists
of 25 stackable units which are all shaped
differently. Together with a low table, the
collection lets you compose your own
storage system. Combined they can form
either a long shelf or a tall cabinet.
Instead of letting us adapt to a certain
design, Kyuhyung Cho and collaborator
Erik Olovsson give us the possibility of
creating it the way we want.
