Let’s talk about Pantone’s Fall 2015 Colors

Design Trends of 2014

Design Trends of 2014
As we say goodbye to 2014, it's time to look back and reflect on how design has trended this past year. In 2013 we saw a year full of basic flat design. While flat design was still used quite a bit in 2014, we’ve started to see some other trends expanding upon that back-to-basics movement. »

If you can dream it. You can print it.

If you can dream it. You can print it.
Some of my favorite design is done with blind spot coating. A blind spot coating is a process by which a design is made simply by printing contrasting clear coatings. It is a very elegant treatment that can make a bold statement. However over my years I have had a question eating at me. Can you do a vignette with the spot varnish? »

How A Design is Born

How A Design is Born
​Besides making things look pretty, what a designer does is solve communication problems visually. For example, they will choose an image to convey or reinforce a message; or they will fit things on the page so the message is delivered in an organized, understandable manner – all while keeping within the overall brand. Various media and size requirements present their own communication problems to solve in order to provide a seamless user experience – whatever it may be. »

Should we look to other designers as inspiration?

Should we look to other designers as inspiration?
In a philosophical discussion on design with a colleague the question came up whether we should even look to other design as inspiration. The thought was that perhaps by getting inspired by others design that our own design would subconsciously be imitating the things we liked and not creating anything new at all. My eyebrow raises like Spock to this idea and I immediately feel like beating people about the head with a Nerf bat, but for those who might share the same sentiment lets examine it a little closer. »

I originally liked the simplistic design of Facebook, but now I’m sick of it.

I originally liked the simplistic design of Facebook, but now I’m sick of it.
Back when Facebook was the upstart and MySpace ruled the world - Facebook's consistent, clean interface called to me. MySpace profiles and pages were generally ghastly compilations that seemed to make my eyes bleed; Clashing colors, animated gifs galore, and more often than not that annoying hamster song.  »

Print Coatings - What are they?

Print Coatings - What are they?
Liquid print coatings are finishes used on printed pieces to not only enhance a design and create interesting visual effects, but also to protect your piece from scuffs, scratches and sometimes finger prints. There are 3 typical coatings used in printing to accomplish this. They are varnish, aqueous, and UV coating. There are different advantages/disadvantages to using each one, and your particular project will most likely dictate which is the best one to use. »

Brochure Fold Basics

Brochure Fold Basics
The fold of a brochure can be what makes it unique and interesting, or it can be functional in order to accomplish something. For the most part there are a few common folds that are used, and simple modifications to these basic folds are where you really start to see some really clever ideas. But you have to know the basics and the terms before you move on to more complicated things... so here are the basics. »

Adobe’s Software As Service: Creative Cloud

Adobe’s Software As Service: Creative Cloud
When Adobe announced that they would be moving to a subscription based service, at first we here at Nuvonium were not very happy. There is something about paying for a service, rather then owning the rights to a product, that just doesn’t sit right in the gut.  »

What am I?

What am I?
At the start of my career, I was a graphic designer. Then a few years or so in I began to dabble in the early days of web design. After diving in fully I became a graphic and web designer. But eventually, I wanted my pretty sites to do more. So I started programming. Which made me a graphic designer and a web designer/developer.  »
