Illustrations with a human touch are what people look for and designer Ashwani Nagar understands that concept very well. His illustrations maintain the feel and emotion that resonate with people which in turn help them connect to the artwork at first sight.

 

Inspired by mundane events and interesting everyday people, one of his projects called Life in a Metro, Airport Swag depicts his acute sense of observation of how people behave and react while undergoing their daily journey to and from work to home. Collaborating with art partner Manish Minglani, the series of 12 posters offer a microscopic view on peoples’ everyday actions and behaviour. Made using sketchbook, Photoshop and Illustrator, this artwork symbolises how humour can help educate and create positive change in society.

In a world where technology is emerging as the winner, Aditi Dash, a young visual artist, takes on a massive challenge to create organised designs where concepts and innovative ideas are the first thing that meet the eye. The cheerful colours, the organised layout, all variables merge together to only highlight the fact that software is simply a tool of the trade and is dictated by the designer.

 

Aditi Dash tells us more about how she tames technology to create memorable designs.

Taming Technology to Create Memorable Designs by Aditi Dash - Creative Gaga

Never Dwell in a Comfort Zone and Work within Boundaries

Design should be functional while having visual appeal. And that’s why it’s important that a designer’s design sensibilities seem organized. The messaging in an artwork needs to be easy to grasp and understand, otherwise one loses interest. Designers can most definitely incorporate elements that inspire them like organized, and that does not mean it becomes their style. A designer must be able to continually challenge abilities and traverse through the vast possibilities this field of expression has to offer.

Mediums Change and so do Techniques

Print design is gradually losing traction and digital seems to be the new platform where designer chose to master their work. Although digital platforms miss out on the tangible appeal of print media, it is more versatile and can be explored as an experimental medium. Designing for a digital space has a whole universe of RGB colours at one’s disposal and requires being pixel perfect. Print on the other hand requires a good understanding of all the materials involved, like the kind of paper, inks, printing techniques etc.

Technology is Simply Tools of the Trade

Technology is not a choice in today’s world, and it’s something that design is incomplete without in most cases. And that is the challenge.

Anybody can learn how to use software and start designing but that’s not the point. It’s important to understand that we are the masters and not these tools. And hence a design sense and prowess is what one must work on before anything else. As a creative thinker, it’s important to make technology work as a catalyst for innovative ideas and concepts that should emerge as the hero of a design.

Approach Challenges with Confidence

The goal of every design should be to serve a purpose and contribute to society. Once you plunge into the world of design, challenges will be thrown your way and the trick to overcome them is to face them with confidence, even if your mind is thinking twice. This attitude means half the battle won. There is no fear in design, because no one loses; there is nothing to lose. All there is to gain. Gain inspiration, knowledge and skill.

Designs can make use of various modes of expression to meet desired results. Some are simple and minimal whereas some can be loud and boisterous. The latter is a path that visualizer Jalpa Shah takes on her designs. Using loud colour combinations, fun elements and some bit of humour, her designs are a perfect recipe for a memorable design experience. More on how she achieves what she plans.

MONDAY BLUDLE -THE GEOMETRIC MAN.

Doing it the bold and quirky way!

The way a designer designs isn’t their style, but rather their intention; their intention to get the message across in the most effective and entertaining manner. For some it might be simple and soft and for some designers, the bold and quirky route might be the shortcut to their viewer’s hearts. For most designers, this happens autonomously without having to put much force into it. Bright stark colours, shapes and geometric patterns help attract attention and are eye catching. Such can be a sigh of relief, a stressbuster, especially in the world like today’s where everything is so busy and monotonous.

Perfection lies in the hands of the beholder!

Even though technology has conquered the thoughts and imagination of many designers, the use of pencil and paper, the traditional tools of the trade, are signs of a perfectionist. One has to master the art of drawing on paper because that’s how it is transferred onto a digital platform for enhancements and drama. The feeling of pencil hitting paper is like liberation for many, and inspires great imaginations to take raw shape. That goes in saying that versatility is highly important. Don’t get distracted by learning about technology on its own, there’s no point if you’re not learning about the world around you.

First comes ‘what’, then ‘how’!

Try and focus your designs on the end result. That will give you direction to achieve what it is you want. Whether it’s a smile on the viewer’s face or a brief for a client, when you can visualise the final expectations and reactions, the journey to achieve that becomes easier. Vibrant elements work to achieve that as they serve as eye candy and bring about a sense of understanding and content to the audience.

Word art is a complete picture.

Typography is a type of design that is gaining huge momentum and appreciation by people. Many designers are creating display fonts in unique styles and using traditional and modern inspirations. The aim is to illustrate type form which makes a complete visual when seen as a whole. These days, type is also a visual and when illustration and design are infused together with letterforms, the outcome is a beautiful narrative
