Designers & Stylists

April 7, 2009

Suddenly you didn’t have to have gone through Parsons, or wherever, to call yourself a designer. This is undeniably a great thing. Get rid of offensive, hidebound notions of who may and who may not design? Absolutely! Eliminate preconceptions that the untrained are incapable of finding workable answers? Totally. Babylon must fall.

But I think we largely threw the baby out with the bathwater when we collectively made the leap to hyperspace—the mass exodus to the computer, and computer–mediated creation. There was something good and valuable and honorable and real in that tradition, and I think, in our fuck-you-heroes craving for self-definition and our desire to violate the various grids that contained us, we left that something behind.

Adam Greenfield no A List Apart

Vide lista designGrafico (que deve ser o novo termo pra Styling). Participo, vale a pena mesmo que só de vez em quando. Existem alguns três profissionais muito pacientes com todo o pessoal que vai de novo discutir se logomarca existe. Deveriam criar um manual.

E me faz muito feliz participar das listas da facul, que são mais sinceras na hora de categorizar todos os links de tutoriais de photoshop e dicas de compressão de vídeo (que a gente tanto precisa): freakness. Lista de Tipo com quem começou com o Valero e tinha, já nos primeiros meses, James Craig de um lado e Robert Bringhurst de outro idem. Faltava só o Uriá Fassina entrar.

(Estou sentindo como se só postasse coisas antigas. Pelo menos são coisas que valem a pena.)
