Opinion: Blog about Design

Opinion: Blog about Design

I just wrote this in response to a blog I read, after I had read a previous one that made me excited to find out they need more writers on their team. Catching about 15 errors and what could have been worded with more poetic enthusiasm based on what the blog was about, this was my response in regards to “tips on designing.”

Keep in mind, I am an abstract artist and aspiring writer(although I don’t like talking about my work and am still holding back on putting any of it up on a page for viewing), so I don’t think I’m better. But fresh eyes always have something to offer and only the creator to gain. That is, if they don’t take it too personally.

“I’ll most likely never talk about my art/design/writing as if I thought I was a “master”, because I’m far from the complete understanding and ease of using design programs, whereas writing and abstract expression art I’ve done my whole life. When I get my writing and art projects up and going, you’ll see. But as an honest(brutally more often than not…ok, I can be a mean MF) consumer and audience, I notice things I don’t think a lot of people do. I’m slow, which isn’t how the world is evolving. I’m way behind on the technological advancements, but I know enough to know that what I see and what I don’t see makes it at least change my own mind about what I find “amazing. Design today is very simple and minimalist, which isn’t to say that’s a bad thing. However, with websites specifically(there’s too much WORLD to go into it), is that they all look pretty much the same. The layout, the interface, and that reminds me too much of a similar design that sends my calm easy mind into a vortex of lunacy: The Macintosh. The OS has never changed and neither has their style.
Not all websites are as such, and a lot of the ones that stick out aren’t enticing as much as they are a thumping headache. Ads and too many colors that are mixed and entangled in a blinding way(some color theory would help), too many animated vectors, a cluttered mess that is so overwhelming the idea behind the website is not only lost but has scared away the audience so they can get a Xanax and a hot wash clothe to sit in the dark.
I don’t code or really know how to even just customize my own blog, but I’m slowly but surely getting there. I wish there was a lot more creative, original ideas out there, and I’m sure they are. More than enough. But its what is comfortable. What sells. We need more bold people to not only design their blogs/websites/products, but also be willing to take it further, make it interesting, really freak people out. Wake them up. Or slow them down enough to see there’s a world around them they’re missing because their phone is more pleasing.
Just my thoughts.”

The Idiots called People

 This is just a draft post. I’ll get into it later. But the fact that people use graphic tablets for god knows how long, get a different one that isn’t a special expensive plug and play Waccom Intuous(over priced…just like another electronic I know of…MAC!), and the pen is wireless so no battery is needed(oh my, the agony of replacing a battery when replacing a stylus for an Intuous costs the same as the tablet I just bought, It even arrived early and was easy to install. But the pictures are for those who complain about the sensitivity. How does one use electronics with a computer they’ve had long enough to get to know a little more than just acquaintances, NOT know that the images I have up here, are the first thing someone should know about before they get wrapped up in a tablet? Even using a MOUSE, the settings are adjustable. 
“Oh man, I really had so much hope, but its so sensitive!” Well, you most likely bought it off the internet, so maybe use that same internet to look up if there’s a way to adjust the settings. Its disturbing how much we spend and own technology wise, rely on apps and software to get things done for us so we can “multi-task”, which actually makes our brains slack off(spell checker….I barely use it anymore, because of an app that doesn’t have it or a delete button. A virtual typewriter), so we’re in fact evolving backwards in time. We stress ourselves out to the point of popping pills just to not break down in hysterics or firebomb. 
Its a great tablet. Better than the Bamboo I barely used for a few years that just copped out. I could be jinxing myself right now, but I don’t care. In this moment, which we all should take just a minute to stop and breathe and appreciate how lucky and spoiled rotten we can be. 
 Oh how I can go on and on about that topic, but I’ll save that for another post.
Bottom line: if your stylus is going out of bounds, moving too ofast and ultra sensitive that it doesn’t have to even touch the tablet to mess up or click things you didn’t mean to click or delete or restart the computer. If you did that much research on the tablet and took a chance and bought it regardless of the comfort of the kind you’ve become attached to, then surely you know how to Google “my stylus for my tablet is really sensitive.” 
You don’t even have to click on a link. It just has a simple Wiki box front and center that tells you where to go into settings. You’ll never grow or learn if you don’t dig for an answer. 
That’s enough for now. Stay tuned for more reviews and maybe some art to add to my gallery.
