I recently wrote a guest post on Rosie Moulton’s blog page. Rosie is a graphic designer and her main focus on her blog is illustration. I found her site very inspirational and did some illustration research myself. Read my post on Rosie’s blog.
Thanks Louise for letting me be a guest on your blog. I love your photography so I thought I’d share some photos from a talented landscape, storm photographer from Byron Bay called Dave Ellem. You can check out more of his photos at Kabod lightscapes.
Rosie Moulton is an emerging graphic designer an illustrator who is always on the lookout for fresh inspiration which she likes to share on her blog Inspiration is Everywhere.
These images are from a website called Boost Inspirastion. There are resources on the site for all things design – check it out. These images that I have found on the site demonstrate one point perspective and they are absolutely stunning! The black and white contrast is so striking. Beautiful work. See the full page of photographs.
Beautiful illustrations by a student that I found at their site. It seems like such a dying art so it was really refreshing to come across a designer who has great hand – pencil – paper skills. Here are some of the images from their portfolio site:
I was hunting around the net for interesting sites when I came across this english photographer. Her work caught my eye with its classic style and famous faces. The photography is not loud and modern but more timeless. Her name is Mary McCartney – check out her site. Here are some of the images that caught my attention:

Over the last months we have seen a strong trend towards more individual web designs. These designs use realistic motifs from everyday life, such as hand-drawn elements, script fonts, pins, paper clips, organic textures and scrapbooks. That’s not a big surprise as they serve the function that faceless, shiny, glassy 3D-buttons completely fail to deliver: individuality and personality. “Personal” designs appear more familiar and more friendly. Used properly, such elements can give a human touch to design and communicate the content in a truly distinctive manner.
However, apart from visual design elements, one can also get creative with the layout of the site – its structure and the way the information is presented and communicated. To give you some ideas of how exactly it can be done, we have been collecting examples of creative design layouts. Design was more important to us than a concrete implementation of some creative idea. We also weren’t interested in whether the code validates or not. Below are some examples we have found so far.
We strongly encourage designers to break out of the usual boxed layout conventions, experiment with new approaches and risk crazy ideas. Show what you are capable of!
