Mouth-watering: 50 Stunning Commercial-free Photos for Food Industry Designs


  

Professional photos of food and food-related scenes can be hard to come by when you have to stick to a thrifty budget. Yet, sometimes you have a startup business client who needs to keep costs low, which means that cheap – or even free – photos are necessary. Or maybe you need stock photos to make your theme demo look too incredible to pass up. Food photos are also an excellent idea for unique textures for your design project.

Design Faves: New Wellspring of Inspiration for Designers


  

In the design world nothing gets created without the initial spark of inspiration. Sometimes you as a designer sit down and inspiration is all around you. Most of the time it’s not. To make it through these hard times, all of us have a bunch of bookmarks at hand, with sites focusing on getting the ideas flowing. Now the makers of WebDesigner Depot, Mighty Deals, Techi and Brushlovers have entered the scene with their inspiration-dedicated and in itself beautiful website Design Faves. Let’s have a look…

Banksy in New York: Controversy, Adversity, and Exposure


  

As all of the art world knows by now, Banksy, the elusive street artist from the UK has spent the entire month of October in New York. He left 27 works of art in various locations of New York, plus a landscape oil painting “vandalized”, an unpublished op-ed for The New York Times, and two videos plus a free t-shirt graphic for fans on his website. Appropriately named Better Out Than In, Banksy clearly reveals in the header of the website that his New York trip is about his conviction that art should be found outside of galleries to be easily seen and enjoyed by the masses.

Street Creativity: The Art of Japanese Manhole Covers


  

Of all the complaints you’ll hear from creatives about disrespectful clients, on all of the websites dedicated to crazy, and rude clients, you’ll never see the name of a Japanese creative, complaining about a client. Why is that? Perhaps because in a country that values creativity, that entitles creatives as “living treasures,” clients don’t try to talk jobs worth thousands, down to $50, or come up with excuses to not pay for work done. Before you pack up and move to Japan, enjoy this collection of street art, an outdoor gallery of manhole cover art, and dream of a place where you are worshipped for your creative abilities.
