Evernotes Every Friday

1. Creating the World of Oblivion

I know I’m not the only one who pays attention to the design details in movies, but I will be paying extra attention to these graphics in Oblivion (with Tom Cruise) now that I’ve seen this short behind the scenes flick—with the lead graphics animator, David “dlew” Lewandowski, and design director, Bradley “Gmunk” Munkowitz. Thanks Ismael Burciaga for sharing!

2. Process of a Product Photography Shoot

Another behind the scenes glimpse in this post about a product photography shoot. I am still grasping portrait photography, but product photography can be just as hard if not worse—I mean, how do you make a bottle of coffee concentrate speak your brand to your target audience? What an amazing process goes into these shoots, from the props to the lighting… Thanks V.K. Rees Photography for the glimpse into your process, via Yes and Yes.

3. How to Work with Creative People

This site was cracking me up while at the same time I just nodded along. Are us creatives really a breed of our own?

I think this is one of my favorites though:

“One of the worst things you can do to your creatives, artists, and designers is treat them like plumbers, mechanics, and janitors, held to the expectations of magicians, wizards, and geniuses.”
– Adam DeVarney, Artist

4. Skillshare: Label Design

Oh man oh man, I really want to take this class with Lettering legend Jon Contino—whom I’ve featured a few times. Sign up for the class here! And get from Creature Comforts here.

5. Threadless features Monster’s Ince

While I may be super picky on what type of Disney “fan art” I like and don’t like, I do love so many submissions to this Threadless t-shirt design contest for Monster’s Inc, including the winner featured below. Congrats Patrick Seymour on winning!

I believe in magic. I believe in the power of true love. I believe in fairy tales and happy endings. And I live to create stationery and art for the young at heart to allow my fellow dreamers to treasure all of life’s most wondrous moments!
