Greenpeace Green my Apple project

22 comments 2007 at 04.19 pm posted by Veerle Pieters

It doesn’t happen that often that we receive an unusual project request. You know, *that* project that makes your eyebrows raise and where you need some time to think about it before agreeing to it. That’s exactly what happened to us a few months ago…

Deadlines kill inspiration

45 comments 2007 at 08.19 am posted by Veerle Pieters

Picture this: you are sitting along the river in beautiful surroundings creating what’s bound to be your best work yet and you aren’t feeling pressured. Sounds lovely, isn’t it? Too bad it isn’t reality. Now there seems to be an almost impossible deadline around every corner.

Outdoor furniture part 3

17 comments 2007 at 12.36 pm posted by Veerle Pieters

Nothing as nice as spending the afternoon in a lovely garden enjoying the view. That’s eactly what we did in the previous part 1 and part 2 about Belgian companies that specialize in design outdoor furniture. In this final piece we expand across my border to see what others have to offer. I’m sure there’re more brands out there but I tried to find the ones that have design running through their veins.

Print going the way of the dinosaur?

Last week I linked to a cool new website called “A Brief Message” by Khoi Vinh and Liz Danzico, which features design opinions expressed in short form - 200 words or less. The first article there was written by Steven Heller and was about print being as good as dead. As always opinions differ and with this article I’ll try to write down my thoughts about it. Unfortunately I didn’t stick to the 200 words limit :)

PANTONE unveils GoeSystem, 2000 colors added

24 comments 2007 at 08.32 am posted by Veerle Pieters

It has been some time since we last talked about being a print designer. How fun and exciting the web can be it’s still no replacement to physically holding something you created in your hands. An essential tool in doing that is Pantone, you know the industry standard for color specification introduced 45 years ago. The designers landscape has changed a lot in those years and it’s time for something new.

Joining The Deck

Some readers will have noticed that since a few days I began running ads from The Deck, Jim Coudal’s design-focused advertising network. I opted to integrate tasteful, unobtrusive and relevant advertising.
