5 Design/Media Articles I’m Reading

19 Jul

I’ll be honest, I don’t read as much as I’d like. Heck, I don’t even read as much as I should. Over the course of a busy week, I rarely find time to just sit and read. Recently, though, I curtailed my busybee life long enough to read these five fantastic design/media articles. Now, you can partake in the knowledge as well!

Right Your QR Code Wrongs

Not until I read this article did I realize just how incorrect my QR Code usage has been.

 

Marketing to Women: Should you focus on Facebook, Pinterest or Twitter?

Because, let’s all face it, we run the world (and Beyonce even said so!) – so don’t you want to market to us correctly?

Awesome and Simple Logos

Because I have a long-standing love affair with logos!

 

 

Why Web Designers Should Turn towards Responsive Web Design?

Why-Web-Designer-Should-Turn-towards-Responsive-Web-Design2

This topic, to me, is fairly obvious. Why wouldn’t you want it to be responsive? These days, more people will view your site via a smartphone or iPad than ever before.

I know for me there is nothing worse than a clunky website that won’t work (or even show up) on my phone.

 

Travel Made Easy!

I swear this isn’t an ad randomly thrown in to capture your clicks. This shows you all the amazing sites out there that let you plan and execute your next awesome adventure. Who knew there were so many great places?

 

Here’s A Pamphlet…

10 Jul

Usually the words “Here’s a pamphlet.” or “Here’s a Brochure.” coincide with some kind of unpleasentness (doctor’s office? insurance claim? uneeded credit card offer?), but how can one dislike a brochure when it is as well designed as these!?

I can be nobody but myself. And at the moment, myself does not wish to organize these images into anything except: design.

Enjoy!

If I could get the layout of them right, then they’d be up. Moral of the story: stay tuned 😉

Brilliant color for your inspiration!

Summer Is Calling

26 Apr

It isn’t even May yet, but the weather where I’m at has already turned for the warmer. I must admit I am much more inclined to be up and active when it is warm. I despise being cold.

So in the celebration of  impending summer, some articles perfect for the season:) :

Tone Yo Booty, the Gwyneth Paltrow Way!

Hey, if it is going to be out there then why not lift it up a little?

Get All Glowy and Shimmery (Without all that burning/skin damaging stuff)

 

Plus, your skin color is fine in its natural shade!

 

Braid Up That Hair!

 

It is the ultimate summer look… and so easy/simple.

 

Why Not Grab a Cheap Swimsuit?

 

Even though there are 5,000 “Find Your Best Suit!!” articles out, why not just buy what you think is best?

You know better than any 😉

 Make Some Tasty Summer Pasta!

And of course, always remember to laugh:

A Body of Work

15 Nov

Never has anything so consumed, so overwhelmed, so befuddled like the human appearance. It is a simultaneous source of bliss and despair.

Perhaps it is our society? I can’t say I know, but I can say I have my opinions.

Adriana Lima Defends her Victoria’s Secret Diet

So, the bombshell model apparently goes on a hardcore diet and exercise regimen before the big show. Why this is shocking, I haven’t quite figured out. She has nutritionists and trainers monitoring her every move, much like a training athlete. I mean yes, it is odd to eat only liquid food for 2 weeks but I can surmise she doesn’t do this everyday of her life. Is it not odd that athletes consume thousands of calories to gain weight? Nobody seems to care much then. I wouldn’t normally be so passive about extreme eating, but it seems to me Adriana lives a healthy lifestyle. She has experts monitoring it all, something us normal folk don’t have.  Obviously, average people couldn’t subscribe to this kind of lifestyle. But average people are also not strutting down a glitter-covered catwalk in underwear and giant ten pound wings.

Disney Stars Are Not Fat

Well….duh.  Miley Cyrus took to her Twitter to “blast” critics for calling her fat.  Miley Cyrus clearly has never been “fat” a day in her life.  Demi Lovato answered back on her Twitter applauding Cyrus’ Tweet. Demi has famously been recovering from an eating disorder for the last few months. Many have called her big and fat. I would know, recovering from an eating disorder is hard and even harder when you feel your body is ballooning out of control (although it isn’t). When you first begin recovery, your body tends to gain more than it needs because, well it doesn’t know when you are going to haul off and starve half to death again. You feel majorly uncomfortable. But eventually, it balances out. It would be unbelievably hard to do in front of the whole world. So….major props to Demi for doing so.

And Yes… You can Bleach Your Teeth Too Much

Bleach-orexia. Making me wonder when having snow white teeth became “normal.”

Models Not To Blame For Child-Hood Eating Problems

Says BBC News.
