so basically someone made a redesigned version of Comic Sans and holy shit I never knew I could warm up to something that resembles Comic Sans like this

I’m not a typographer so my eyes aren’t trained for this but I think I might use this from now on

Ehhhhh still nope.

The abstract pattern is more than just decoration. It’s a so-called Tughra, the mark of the Sultan. In a tughra, the Sultan’s name gets turned into a striking emblem or insignia, The document you’re looking at is a ‘ferman’ or imperial decree.
So generally documents like this were not made for display, but obviously when you displayed it in some sort of judicial or other setting, the fact that it was so grand almost meant that no-one could argue before they’d even read it.
there are two compartments; the lower one is filled with little clumps of flowers and above that is an abstract pattern which we call an arabesque.  And the uprights have similar patterns but the variety is given by the use of plain or gold grounds. So this is not just a text, it’s also one of the finest examples of Ottoman illumination as an art form.
I work in The Museum Of Islamic Art in Doha, Qatar so I know this stuff :)

Four Flat Favorites Series: Artist
This is part 1 of a series I am working on. The basis for the series is to illustrate four of my favorite “things” in the style of flat design. I’ve been doing a lot of reading about flat design as of late. It’s a popular and interesting concept in Graphic Design currently. Especially since it feels like a repackaging of Swiss minimalism for UI/UX design. Call it Flat, or it Call Swiss minimalism they both have the same/similar goals in mind. I would say the title is completely arbitrary to a extent. As this series progress I will doing more research on the trends birth and growth. I wonder if there’s a flat design manifesto or something out there

How big should you make your art?

thefrogman:

I’ve noticed some digital artists out there who just kind of guess when choosing the dimensions of their artwork. Trying to understand ppi, dpi, print dimensions, and resolution can send you down a rabbit hole of complexity likely to break your brain.  

If you are creating an image only for the web, it is really up to you how big you want to make it. The only relevant dimensions are the pixels. Print size and pixels per inch are of no consequence. A 1920x1080 300ppi image will be the same as a 1920x1080 600ppi image. Your screen only cares about pixel dimensions.

If you plan to print your image, that is where things can get complicated.

Here is the simple version…

First you need to determine the maximum size that your work may be printed. Here are the most commonly used sizes for poster prints. 

image

Now you need to know the brand of printer that will be used. Typically it will be Epson, HP, or Canon.

For Epson printers…

  • Input the width and height. 
  • Input a resolution of 360 pixels per inch.

For Canon, HP, and most other printers…

  • Input the width and height. 
  • Input a resolution of 300 pixels per inch.

So let’s say you are in photoshop and you want your art to be printed at 11” x 17” on an Epson printer. This is how you should create your document. 

image

If you do not know how your work will be printed, I recommend erring on the side of “too big.” If you end up having to enlarge your work, it could result in some quality loss.

The ONLY thing I will add to this is that if it is for print, you want to change the color mode from RGB to CMYK! RGB is web colors only and it won’t end up printing as vibrant as you want it to. =)

-Cuckoo-Project-Week-Five / Stilnest, Germany #PAPER ART

Germany’s Stilnest enlisted six artists from around the world to play a part in designing 3D printed”conjoint remake of the traditional German cuckoo clock in synch with the Zeitgest of the 21st century.”

Without ever meeting each other, the artists from Germany, Belgium, Netherlands, UK, and Mexico each agreed on a specific piece of the clock that they would digitally draw.

Each designer sent to Stilnest the specific piece of the clock that they created and with a 3D printer Stilnest printed and assembled them into a traditional German Cuckoo Clock.
