The Astonish Me Problem... a reading response

The Astonish me Problem, is an article discussing the art of visual texture. It highlights the fact that even tho paper is 2D we can make things look dimension with textures and colors to give it a more appealing look. I like the concept that just because an object is 2D doesn't mean you can't make it have a 3D apperance! I never looked it that way, so it was an interesting view point for me. People tend to gravitate more towards and eye catching, perhaps more texture piece, then say a boring flat poster. I personally liked the articles reference to street post and and junction boxes becoming works or art and "limited editions" and not just poster sites. This is so true. Have you even been in a subway station? Some of those walls are plastered with posters, some are just giant ads but in away it becomes an art form.
Lastly the article covered the works of Shigeo Fukuda, he had the ability to take shapes and place them so to create a graphic mind trick. He used 1 to 2 colors (thus having a very limited palette) but this made his work really simple, yet had alot to look at. I really liked that style. Picture 10.png

What Inspires my Design

This was a tough question for me, because i haven't really ever thought about this. I started to look at some of my projects and my style. I love an eclectic mix of colors and shapes. I love a modern feel with pop art twist. I find that by looking at different wallpapers and textures is where i begin most of my projects. I love pattern and find wallpapers have endless patterns with endless inspirations. Picture 1.pngPicture 6.png

What I really want to know about design...

There are a few things that I would really like to learn explore in the field of design. I am really interested in Web design and would like to learn more about that. I also want to learn more about the design software. I think that there are endless programs available, outside from Adobe, and I would like to explore those.
