Lately i like how overprint and transparency works with magenta & cyan on white background. That makes such a sweet combination. I like here a purple colour that was made by overlaying these two colours. Play with white space and the way clouds were made could be interesting to try in my own identity design.

Michael Buble on 'First dance' album cover reminds me of Sinatra. Eye contact with potential customer is good solution for cover. And of course good photography sells better. The only thing is missing, i think, is his signature, would look stylish in the corner. Apart from his voice, I love his style and the fact, he kind of seams 'new' even though he makes 'old' music.
Brighten your day, enjoy Buble. He does a great job covering this Sinatra favourite:

Daft bodies, hands... whatever, people on youtube are obsessed with that. The other day i found an interactive game helping you to practise. It could be a really successful campaign if it was promoting a product.

T-mobile USA copyrights colour. Hm, that makes me think that i need to hurry and copyright my own magenta till all of them are picked. At least i can use the next pantone colour along, as in the handy demonstration to the right, there, because as we all know, ONE SHADE of magenta along makes all the difference, and will make it totally obvious you’ve not nicked their logo. A quick search of the The British Patent Office (www.patent.gov.uk) and their database of trademarks shows Orange hold the colour orange (pantone 151) as a registered trademark too. I guess in about next 10 years graphic design world will be in need of new colours.
Sorry Barbie & Hello Kitty :-(
Just finished watching Dude, Where's My Car? (2000), what could i say, i've wasted 82 minutes of my day. There is always something good about anything bad. The soundtrack is great, cant stop listening to Young MC, enjoy you too. It is so good for Saturday evening!
Enjoy memorable quotes for the most absurd movie i have seen:
Jesse: Dude, where's my car?

Last weekend I finally went to Cartier exhibition at Prague Castle. Cartier is a French luxury jeweller and watch manufacturer. Founded on 1847, in Paris. I had an opportunity to admire more than 368 Cartier masterpieces and uncountable amount of diamonds! I was interested in Pathere de Cartier collection. The collection was a new wave in 20th century design. Louis Cartier often was inspired by wild animals, reptiles: panther, snakes and crocodiles. I highly recommend to have a look at this exhibition.

You can order stretched canvases, phone cases, laptop & iPad skins, hoodies and T-shirts with this positive illustration. Graphic design & Illustration are already on a new level of market. Today you can order whatever illustration you want to have it printed on almost everything. Isn't it great to have all of your stationary and accessories in one style, pattern? My dissertation topic slightly covers this area of market. Which has high potential to become wider as soon as internet will move into our cell phones.

I dedicate this post to Diva of this blog 'Magenta'. This is how it is described on Wikipedia: 'Magenta is a color evoked by light stronger in blue and red wavelengths than in yellowish-green wavelengths. The name magenta comes from the dye magenta, commonly called fuchsine, discovered shortly after the 1859 Battle of Magenta (from the color of the land all covered by the blood) at Magenta, Italy near Milan.'

Charming illustrations of dogs on the postcard is the best way to say 'Hello' to your friend from abroad. Love the colour palette. This type of 'Sweet blue' matches warm colours the best way. Made by The Little Dog Laughed.
Available at 'The paperie', British stationery retailer.
Today I had a very inspiring trip to NAU GALLERY with mates. The exhibition place is not big, that makes it cozy. It was good to see creative talents growing in Prague. This work below is worth paying attention to. I like the play of shadow and the way animal is hiding in this shadow. Each of us would see it differently. I think this horse is shy, he doesn't feel confident when rays are so close to him. But cyan colour calms him down and he's doing his first steps.
Work by Vaclav Misar.

Digipop by Karim Rashid for sure is the best thing to read for magenta lovers. Guess why? He hates black, and he is #1 fan of "RGB (255, 0, 255)". He doesn't believe in history, loves evolution and can't wait for the day when we all gonna be 50% synthetic and artificial.
(available on Amazon for $7.66)
