Breathing Life Into Your Design Projects With Visme

Easy. Have you ever looked at a picture of yourself taken several years ago? Odds are, you thought, “Oh geez. Look at my hair and clothes. What was I thinking?” When we look back at our Web work it’s a similar scenario. Animated gifs doing goofy things and other strangeness. Then, along came Flash. Whoa.

Re-Design of Roald Dahl’s "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory": Worst Book-Cover Published?

Do not judge a book by it’s cover – but readers certainly do. It is the first thing that people see and they certainly expect the cover to relate to the book which in the case of this new version of “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory” it really doesn’t seem to. The publishers say on their facebook page: “This design is in recognition of the book’s extraordinary cultural impact and is one of the few children’s books to be... CONTINUE READING
