Design for Designers

March 27th, 2006 by dru

I know what you’re thinking, why is there tons and tons of illustration stuff on this site and so little actual design work? Well, you’re right and that sucks. I don’t want to confuse anyone, first and foremost I’m a graphic designer. That means a lot to me. I wouldn’t consider myself an illustrator, just interested in illustration. Drawing and other basic handskills are some things that may set designers apart from one another but the most important aspects of what makes a designer effective are simply the fundmentals, creativity, and consistancy.

The above list is of some of my current favorite designers, firms, magazines, and communities in the world of visual communication. All of these sites have a grasp on the fundamentals, weither it’s composition, color theory, typography, grids systems, branding or anything else it’s all right there.

    Hey dude, this has nothing to do with this specific post, but you should totally submit your Hitman graphic to this:

    Well alright. I sent it to the guy and he said he’ll put it in the book. That was easy!

    Nice! He put teetsy in a t-shirt book he’s coming out with this year. He just keeps on pumping out design collection books.

    Thank you Mr Dru.

    The weird thing is that I never ever studied graphic stuff or anything else related so I am always very surprised when people actually like what I am doing.

    Keep your funky style funking (is that even a word ?!)
