Visual Style Guide

Sat Oct 25, 2014, 1:40 PM
When I started studying Photoshop and other Adobe Creative Suite software, one of the early assignments was to find things that were visual triggers for us. Things that 'pushed our buttons' visually. Once we had spent some time collecting such images, we had to make a collage that displayed as many of them as we could.

We could include text, so I tried for a bit of prose to show fonts I liked - 
Things that make me go mmmm,
Things that make me go mmmm,

Things like...

Shades of blue,
Mathematics in nature,
Patterns.
Symbols.
Jazz for it's structured unpredictability,
Tribal art.
Plants like fireworks.
Brightly coloured animals.

:) I appreciate you saying so, but I think I am not great, but technically OK ...and sometimes a little creative. You will find many great artists here over time. 

One of my all time favorites (and friend) is :iconkingabritschgi:  She is also Hungarian. She is a busy woman with a family and a child so not so present a lot of the time, but she has a wonderful imagination and is a talent I can only aspire to. I recommend you take a look at her gallery sometime - kingabritschgi.deviantart.com/…
