Creativity, Innovation Are Key at Communication Arts

Unbeige - Thu, 01/09/2014 - 18:22

CommunicationArtsCommunication Arts, a trade journal for visual communications, covers everything from graphic designers to photographers to advertising agencies. The subscription-only mag features in-depth profiles, tips on design trends, book reviews and more.

CA is approximately 80 percent freelance written, and it’s on the lookout for fresh new writers. So what are the editors looking for? Someone who will inspire:

“We want to improve the way our readers work and think, whether that means introducing a revolutionary technique with dozens of potential applications, challenging disparate disciplines to work together in new ways or refuting common wisdom about, say, what it means to be creative or successful,” said managing editor Robin Doyle. “If your article can do that, we want to see it.” CA editors are always on the lookout for stimulating content for “Columns,” “Profiles” and “Book Reviews.”

To hear more details about CA, including editors’ contact info, read: How To Pitch: Communication Arts.

The in-the-works “smart bracelet” is part of a broader wearable technology initiative announced by Intel at the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES), which runs through Friday in Las Vegas.

In addition to the product partnership, the company outlined its plan to work with the Council of Fashion Designers of America “to create a community for technology developers and fashion designers to network, match-make, cultivate, and exchange ideas on wearable technology.” The alliance will connect the CFDA’s 400 members with hardware and software developers. “The collaborations we announced today will merge the expertise of two very distinct disciplines of technology and fashion, essential in realizing the vision of prolific adoption of wearable technology,” said Intel’s Ayse Ildeniz in a statement. “Intel’s aim is to initiate sustainable, long-term cooperation between the technology and fashion worlds beginning with today’s announcements.”

For the Love of Tools

Creativebits - Mon, 01/06/2014 - 13:27

It wasn't so long ago that "graphic artist" was a trade like most others, with a set of skills and practices that traced their origins back decades, if not centuries. In those days designers were surrounded in their studios by tools, few of which remain in widespread use in the digital age. But as designers, our love of tools, and a sense of the importance of the hand of the creator, remains. Just think of Photoshop's Pencil, Pen, Brush and Eraser tools — it's clear that we're still closely attached to the notion of using tools, even if they're just metaphors of real-world counterparts.

If you're a big fan of tools, you'll probably want to check out the latest offering from Pop Chart. This small firm has made a name for itself with its goal "to render all of human experience in chart form." While this might take some time to complete, along the way we've been treated to some worthy infographics, available as large-format prints. Now comes The Chart of Hand Tools, which packs 300 carefully-rendered tools into a 24by26-inch space, printed on archival stock with brass and aluminum metallic inks, priced at $32.
