The new CS5 branding

70 comments 2010 at 12.39 pm posted by Veerle Pieters

A few days ago Adobe announced CS5, I say announced because nothing is actually shipping yet. From our previous endeavor we already knew that something new was coming. The cat is now out of the bag and we get to see what the design team at Adobe has been up to. In this follow up of our previous article we will also let Shawn Cheris, the lead designer for Adobe’s Desktop Brand team do most of the talking.

New icons for CS5 coming

35 comments 2010 at 10.36 am posted by Veerle Pieters

A few years back the Internet was going totally ballistic when Adobe introduced the new branding for CS3. Most people didn’t like the change and it was very controversial. I think I was one of the lonely few that actually liked the change. Now, a few years later another change is apparently up on us.

A new icon for Markup Validator S.A.C.?

48 comments 2009 at 06.33 pm posted by Veerle Pieters

Not sure about you other Mac users, but I only allow slick looking application icons in my Dock. Of course once the application launches it sits there. Call me fanatic, but every time I launch Markup Validator S.A.C. it itches to turn on hiding for the time I need it and then turn hiding off once the application is closed again…

My first Duoh! website

I already talked about it a few years ago but since so much has changed here on the blog and many new readers don’t dig that deep in the archive I’m reviving this post inspired by Jason Santa Maria’s lastest post about his first website.

Adobe Community Help

8 comments 2008 at 06.28 pm posted by Veerle Pieters

Adobe is now shipping the CS4 suite so that means all new applications and new things to learn. Judging from the amount of questions that I receive about Illustrator or Photoshop there are a lot of people who didn’t discover the Community Help yet. It’s something new that was launched together with CS4. In the past it was hard to find relevant help, but this is a step in the right direction.

Inspiration series: Movie credits

75 comments 2008 at 06.17 pm posted by Veerle Pieters

For our next part in the inspiration series we point our direction towards the big white screen. For long time opening credits where just a boring obligated part. Luckily people start realizing that more was possible in the late 1950s and it became a form of art. There is one graphic designer that made several credits mini movies a work of art and his name is Saul Bass. He is solely responsible for a turning point in the movie credits world. What follows is a small selection of what I found inspiring.

My 10 favorite typefaces

38 comments 2008 at 01.58 pm posted by Veerle Pieters

As someone who has a soft spot for typography in general, it is a rather difficult taks to choose my top 10 favorite typefaces. It feels a bit like shifting through all those nice (600 and more) entries I received for the ‘What is Graphic Design’ poster competition from a while ago. What a tough job that was selecting the winners. So here we go…
