On Friday 12th April 2013, a number of staff members and a few students journeyed to the Antigua Rainforest Zip Line Tours for the first social event planned by the institution. Though the numbers were few, those in attendance would testify that the time spent together was exciting and memorable.
Thank you to all those persons who came and we look forward to the next event and hope that more staff members and students would participate.
More motivational than touching, and more inspirational than amazing:
Slovenia-based photographer Matej Peljhan recently teamed up with a 12-year-named Luka who suffers from muscular dystrophy, to create a wildly imaginative series of photos depicting the boy doing things he is simply unable to do because of his degenerative condition
Hungarian photographer and retoucher Flóra Borsi has done some amazing work. Her humor is very engaging and if you don’t like her work, you my friend are borderline un-cool (this is NOT an opinion).
Below are two articles on some picture sets that she has created. The first one is called “Time Travel” where she masterfully inserted herself and her camera phone into popular historical. If you didn’t know better you would believe she was there.
This next one is an earlier set she created showing what would happen if Photoshop tools could manifest themselves in real life. I really enjoyed these.

The object of this project was to use type to form the distinct features of your face. Weather it be letters numbers and symbols, with skillful arrangement the designs can become amazing works of art

Since typography is the big thing this term, I am posting some quick links to some interesting designs posted on Design Taxi by various designers.
The design concepts are genius and make you re-imagine the power of type as an image.
First up is the Animal Typography from Dan Flemming
