What Makes a Good Design?


After some practice as a designer, some things become a routine, a habit, and our drive is not always the same for each project. How do we make the difference, and what makes our work go from good to excellent? In front of you is a checklist of questions you need to ask yourself for each project, to achieve true greatness every time.

 

Is it innovative?

 

You should always strive for designs that move the borders. In our century, there is always room for being innovative, creative and awesome. Don't be afraid to take advantage of the technological progress, embrace and become a part of the digital revolution. Offer something new, something different and something astonishing.

 

Is it practical?

 

Good design is appealing, but great design is giving a useful product. This is what makes the product sell, and this is what we have to be focusing on at all times. Remember that functionality beats visual appearance, and think practically.

 

Is it aesthetic?

 

Aesthetics is an important aspect of the features of a great design. We are, after all, visual beings, but bare in mind that aesthetics depends on all the other features - execute the project right from start to finish, and beauty will follow.

 

Is it self-explanatory?

 

Make it clear, understandable for everyone. You are not creating metaphors, you are creating products, which exist on the market to be bought. Make sure everyone knows what it represents.

 

Is it fair?

 

Be true to the value the product is providing. Honesty to the customers is the most important aspect, be ethical, be fair, be correct to your audience.

 

Is it discreet?

 

Good design is not supposed to be the central aspect of the room. It is supposed to serve its purpose, and be comfortable for the users - inspire them, relax them, or give them a piece of information. Keep it neutral, unobtrusive, and enjoyable.

 

Is it going to last?

 

Amazing designs are timeless, and they never go out of fashion. This is because they don't follow the fashion, they are being universal, practical, simple, and will never have an antique buzz. Create the designs that last, by appearance and quality, and you will master over every change in the trends and demands. 

 

what makes a successful design piece

 

Is it carefully developed?

 

Develop your design step by step, carefully, thoroughly, with special attention to every last detail. Nothing is too small to be given attention to, nothing so arbitrary and nothing left to destiny. Accuracy and care are essential qualities to approach the design process, showing the consumers how much you respect their needs and that you have thought of everything. Nothing is ever given to chance with you.

 

Is it ecological?

 

Remember where we live and what is happening to our planet. To create a design to last and be the best is to create a design that is environment-friendly, reflects on the actual challenges and benefits the world. Keep in mind to not contribute to the pollution, and conserve the resources in the life cycle of the product.

 

Is it minimalistic?

 

The best design is very little design - or even as little as possible in the given circumstances. Minimalism has been dictating good designs for decades, and it will never go out of style. Simplify, but deliver a better output, keep every essential feature, and do not exaggerate in any way. Best designs are pure, simple, precise and exact.

 

Always have greatness as your goal, and develop your designs and your brand to become a unique pioneer on the market, able to encounter any challenge and derive the best out of your clients. Work with passion, dedication, care - and results will follow.

Why Have a Responsive Web Design?


Did you know that over 25% of all internet users only surf from their mobile devices? New generations are living turbulently, they want all access right away, and if your website is not giving them easy scroll through your content, they won't bother with looking you up later.

 

To emerge in a crowded market, give your users the pleasure of exploring your product under their thumbs. Create a website that is effectively optimized to fit all devices. Responsive websites are designed to provide the best user experience for all screen sizes and types.

 

Responsive websites enable their users to read, orient and navigate with minimum resizing, scrolling and panning. They have the ability to respond to the movements of the device and adapt to whatever screen without compromising site functionality or aesthetics.

 

why is important to have responsive web site

 

How does it work?

 

The responsive site reads the browser information about the width of the user's screen and based on that it shows different views on different devices. The essence is to use a single code, one URL, and one development for multiple devices. Responsive designs have breaking points when presented on your mobile devices, because they use flexible, proportionate grids and images, adapting the layout of the website to the viewing environment.

 

Why switch to a responsive design?

 

If you own an unresponsive website, chances are it was built before 2014, and it is well outdated. Smartphone users check their devices over 150 times a day, and social media click bates are fishing people from their mobile devices much easier than from their desktops. Moreover, 69% of all tablet users are shopping via their tablets every month. Having a responsive web design will save you money and offer better performance, and improve SEO from your website traffic.

 

Google advises all web designers to be up-to-date with the industry requirements, use the same HTML for all devices and only use CSS media queries to determine to render on each device.

 

Be available to your users, at all times, and conquer the competitive market, fast and furious.

How to Manage a Client Who Says You're Too Expensive?


As freelancers, you encounter a variety of clients on a daily basis. Some of them you get along with from the beginning, others not so much. One of many issues can be meeting potential clients who aren't willing to pay as much for your services. In that case, you have several ways of dealing with them.

 

First of all, you can try and explain why are you a total bad-ass in your job. Elaborate on how cheaper alternatives won't achieve the same quality, and exactly what makes the difference in your pricing - which tools do you use, what kind of output do you provide. When you compare your work to other designers, insist on the best value your client is paying for.

 

are your rates too high for your clients

 

Acknowledging the costs of your services is good, especially if you are confident in your qualifications, and you can back it with the results you have achieved.

 

If this option seems too risky, and you want that client, you can reply with giving another offer. They are willing to pay something, so tell them what can they get for a smaller price. Later on, they can upgrade your service and have a pretty and shiny product you can deliver.

 

Showing your character and confidence in your quality is convincing in communication with your client. When negotiating, you are not backing off from your pricing, but are offering another solution, which lets the client know you care about your professional relationships.

 

Some clients are just not able to afford your pricing. Perhaps they are a start-up and have fewer funds than already established companies. If so, they might be able to work with you in the future. This is why it could be good to ask them what their budget is and make a deal from there. The tone of your response should leave those doors open so that they can come back to you in the future.

 

While dealing with these types of clients, bear in mind that some of them are just cheap. There are people who will always choose to save some money over achieving greatness in quality. The only reason why they are asking for less is that we let them - the market is full of people who are underpaid in underdeveloped countries. However, if you are driven by your passion for your work, you have the right to produce amazing content and charge what it is worth. You will always find clients who recognize, respect and are willing to pay that.

Rebellious Child Illustrated


Collaborations are a wonderful happening, especially when they occur for a good cause. And when writers and illustrators gather around a child's book, the real magic occurs. Italian authors Francesca Cavallo and Elena Favilli made themselves well-known with their children's books Good Night Stories and Rebellious Little Girls, so it's not a surprise that their youngest audience got hyped about Rebellious Little Child.

 

Illustrated by dozens of artists worldwide, this book also teaches us, adults, to keep creating a better world for the generations to come, to overcome our differences and use them as our greatest strength. Rebellious Little Child reminds us of a rebellious little version of us, hidden by the age of commerce, struggle, monetization, and time-consuming unsatisfying jobs. Just as transactional psychotherapy does, this book nurtures the child inside you and gets you moving towards your passions, higher goals, and love.

 

This book takes children to a whole new dimension, encouraging them to be rebellious and to design a revolution in their own la-la land. A child is inspired to draw and fill in the book while riding a unicorn, or standing upside down, reflecting on things they love, their dreams, fears, things he/she most is proud of.

 

Distinguished with its unique adorable design, the blanks in the book are to be filled with letters to a child's future self, protest banners for a better world, activism action plans and adventurous travel fantasies.

 

With over one million copies sold worldwide, Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls has become a global movement and a symbol of freedom. The authors Francesca Cavallo and Elena Favilli return with a hundred new, beautiful stories to inspire girls - and children - to dream without borders: Audrey Hepburn, who ate tulips to survive hunger and then became an unreachable icon of style and an extraordinary philanthropist; Bebe Vio, very strong fencing champion despite a serious illness; J.K. Rowling, who turned failure into a strength and changed the history of literature forever. 

 

Rebellious Little Child presents poetesses, surgeons, astronauts, judges, acrobats, entrepreneurs, vulcanologists: a hundred new adventures, a hundred new portraits to inspire us again and tell us that at any age, age and latitude, it is always worth fighting for equality and proceeding step by step quick towards a more just future. 

 

stories for little rebels book cover

 

Unlike the Disney characters we grew up with, imagining that the world will unravel before us, this movement inspires children to take action, demand the world of their own design, strive towards peace, seek, create and take their very own custom-made opportunities.

 

"Once upon a time ... a princess? Of course not! Once upon a time, there was a girl who wanted to go to Mars. There was another one that became the strongest tennis player in the world and another one who discovered the metamorphosis of butterflies. From Serena Williams to Malala Yousafzai, from Rita Levi Montalcini to Frida Kahlo, from Margherita Hack to Michelle Obama, 100 women are told in these pages and portrayed by 60 illustrators from all over the world. Scientists, painters, astronauts, weight lifters, musicians, judges, chefs ... examples of courage, determination, and generosity for anyone who wants to make their dreams come true."

a page from a book story for little rebel

 

Rebellious Little Child is more than a book - it is a story that redefines heroes and achievements. It teaches our children of their right to want more for themselves and to always seek happiness. We live in the age when success needs a new definition, the age when playing is more important than having when we value experiences more than real estate.

 

Think about everything that makes you happy... And now ask yourself what gives? Let's make the world a funny, playful place to be.

Pros and Cons of Photo Wallpaper


photo wallpaper

Nowadays there are a lot of stores offering goods for renovation. But the toughest thing in the renovation process is the choice of wallpaper. The selection is great today. And the main thing is to know how to distinguish high-quality product from cheap stuff.

What wallpaper is better

First you should determine the kind of wallpaper you are going to buy. Don't hasten to buy the first wallpaper you like only because of a captivating pattern. Usual wallpaper may cause a lot of problems and tends to form clots when you hang it on a wall. That is why many people opt for photo wallpaper now. It is preferable option.

Pros and cons of photo wallpapers

Any kind of wallpaper has pros and cons but the benefits of photo wallpapers prevail over their disadvantages.

The pros include:

  • unlimited number of options;
  • durable material;
  • wet cleaning possibility;
  • high-quality inks;
  • possibility to hang the wallpaper on your own;
  • individual pattern.

There are few disadvantages such as:

  • higher price compared to usual wallpaper;
  • this kind of wallpaper requires a thorough preparation before hanging it on a wall;
  • this kind of wallpaper needs to be handled very carefully.

Kinds of photo wallpaper

When it comes to variety of wallpapers, photo wallpaper can be divided into three categories by material: vinyl, non-woven fabric, paper. Paper options are also available in two versions - matt and glossy. The surface can be smooth, textured, and self-adhesive. People differ in opinions about the best choice, but experts recommend buying wallpaper made of non-woven fabric with a protective layer, making it resistant to toughest water impact. There is also 3D wallpaper. Now it is the most popular option, especially for the children's room, which looks very stylish with it. The guests will appreciate your choice and it will gladden your eye.

Is the price reasonable?

Photo wallpaper is a rather expensive treat but its cost is justified. It is a high-quality product that lasts on the wall for many years. Besides, you can order it with any pattern you like. With your kid's favorite cartoon - for the children's room, with a family portrait - for the hall; this kinds of wallpaper can suit the taste of the pickiest customers and can be made for any premise. Taking into account superior quality and long service life, the price of this product is quite reasonable. You can also choose ready-made options with images of animals, flowers, landscapes, patterns, etc. It can be a good choice if you don't want to wait and have found the wallpaper you like among the ready-made ones. And it would be cheaper than the wallpapers with custom designs.

Choosing the Perfect Colours for the Interior of Your Home


With such a large palette of colours available to us now, it can be extremely difficult to know which ones to use in our home. We can stand forever and debate the difference between dusty pink and nude pink, but it can get tedious rather quickly and it’s not as difficult as you think.

home interior

What’s Your Favourite Colour?

 

A good place to start is thinking about what your favourite colours actually are. By starting with colours that you love yourself, not only are you choosing something more personal but you’re not bound by the color schemes of specific decorating styles. By choosing the colour that’s right for you as a base colour, you can literally build the patterns and schemes of the entire room around it. What’s more inspirational than your favourite colour and an entire theme stemming from it?

 

Look for Design Inspiration

 

Websites and magazines dedicated to interior design are the obvious places to go and look for inspiration if you’re struggling yourself. In the age of technology we’re lucky enough to be able to scroll through pages and pages of design inspiration at our leisure. Specifically retail websites are a great way to give you overall room inspiration, because remember that

 

 

whatever colour you go, you’ll need furniture to match! Sometimes it’s a lot easier to go neutral on the walls in order to be able to be more extravagant with your furniture. Another plus to going neutral on your walls, is that if you’re looking to sell your home, particularly if you’re looking to sell quick with Ready Steady Sell, you’re more likely to get more interest in a house that’s neutrally painted because it leaves a blank canvas for the buyer to work on.

 

Other great places to look at online inspiration are Instagram and Pinterest, which are updated and refreshed in real time meaning you’ll get new ideas through all the time.

 

Use Colour Theory to Create Your Scheme

 

You don’t have to study Colour Theory in depth to be able to use it effectively. A little colour wheel can help you all the same. With something as simple as the turn of a wheel, you can see how well different colours relate to each other, and see for yourself the very basics of colour theory. It’s safe to say you’ll probably not want to use the exact colours on the wheel, but they can be used to inspire you with the same colour but in different shades.

 

Pull Colour from Patterns

 

Sometimes using a statement pattern can be a great way to pull out the colours you might want to use for your walls. For example patterned bed covers, pillowcases and throws can provide you with ideas for painting - and if you’re looking to create a feature wall, you can choose the boldest colour available on these! If you are however looking for something a little more subtle, looking at the patterns in more depth and picking out the colour in small details of the fabric might be better for you. If you take a swatch of whatever fabric it is you’re using to the paint shop, you can’t go wrong. Match them up, and you’re ready to go!

 

Look for the Colour in Art

 

No, it’s nothing complex. Literally look for the colours in the artwork you’re hanging in the room of your choice, and use select shades to inspire you for your overall colour scheme. Whether you’re wanting to match them or compliment them, using your art to create your room is a lovely, creative way to fill your home with colour.

 

Be Inspired by the Outdoors

 

Last but certainly not least, allow yourself to be inspired by nature in the outside world. Bringing the outside in, whether that’s by filling your room with houseplants or taking   design ideas from outside colours, is very popular in interior design currently. You could look the using the laid-black blues that mimic the sea, the foliage greens of the forest, or the luscious reds and oranges of the sunset depending on the vibe of the room you’re creating, and either way it’ll look beautiful. However, before making any major decisions (like painting your entire living room burnt orange), remember to view the paint sample in natural lighting, both in the day time and night time, with your windows open and closed. This way, no matter what the season or weather, you’ll know how well your chosen colour compliments your home.

Selecting Colors for Your Window and Doors


colored doors and windows

When you select new doors and windows for your home you need to be very creative and focused on a great value. But at the same time you want to avoid rushing as picking the wrong colors might end up being a problem. Patience is required here as you do want to acquire the best possible value and experience, and the payoff can be really good.

Quality is very important

One of the main things you want to do is to select the manufacturer first, before you go with a certain color. That’s because painting windows and doors can be a tad expensive at times. The idea here is to make sure that you go with a high-quality manufacturer. The last thing you want is to deal with any problems and that’s why you need to use paint that will last for a very long time. The more you focus on paint quality, the better it will be in the end. That’s valid for garage doors, home doors and windows too. Don’t skimp on quality and instead focus on the best possible value and experience, it will be worth it for you in the end.

What colors should you use?

We believe that it makes a lot of sense to go with white at first. Simple, yet refined, white is a color that a lot of people go for because it’s really nice, creative and a lot of fun to use. It’s all about understanding what features you need to opt for and the payoff alone can be really good if you do it right. As long as you do that adequately, the payoff will be very good. Some people go with red, gray and even black for their windows and doors. The idea here is to come up with a color that complements the home color too. You don’t want to step away too much from that, as there will be problems. Pay attention to the process and the entire experience, and the payoff will be great for you in the end.

Do window and door shapes matter?

Some people go onward and come up with some creative door shapes for their rolling steel doors, windows and front doors. What really matters here is quality. If you really like a product and you want to have the best value and quality, you should always focus on the experience and making it as good as possible. There will always be challenges that can arise, as long as you are committed to value it will totally be worth it. Some like circle-inspired, honeycomb windows and many other shapes. You can be as creative as possible, as long as it makes sense with the home shape and style.

As you can see, selecting colors and shapes is all about creativity. But at the same time you also want to make sense within the context of your home. As long as you come up with a color that suits your needs it will be a very good idea. Avoid any rush and try out numerous colors to see which one works your needs. And if you need to go for color combinations, go for it, as it can work great!
