Why is the Bauhaus the most important cultural institution of the 20th Century?

The Bauhaus address to the revolution of graphic design as the school for all student who felt a strong desire to prove a revolutionary application of modernism in arts and technology. It became intensively known as the new social order during the world at wars and non-preventive distortions from the authoritative regime. A matter to achieve major insights into the human condition and environment caused a revolutionary influence in the process of the artist. The Bauhaus is the most important cultural institution of the 20th century not only because the artist replaced the pictorial art but how they took occupation of it and express their own visual approach to it.
The artist went timeless in support of this humanistic spirit by communicating their recent artistic influence and implementing their own way of presentation.Accordingly, this is when the new school Bauhaus founded by Walter Gropius had a strong desire to cultivate influence in the development of innovative graphic design.

What I learn about Interactive Portfolios

A true case of work is identified in a collection of content put together as a unit to build a portfolio that users can interact. Is like a small world, an index that displays artworks in a simple and minimal space. The current dimension to set your project scale is 1080 x 1920 because it works best in many screen sizes. Closely good for popular platforms like computers and phone. Based on my observation of how colors display different tones on the web you can find potential attention in using bright colors with only one or two dark colors. Together they appeal smooth and beautiful. A good interactive portfolio can be build in five sections. Each section focuses on a category you want to define. Remember that each category displays your work that absolutely testifies what's your top skills. What symbols the app on any media and platform is your logo and also having buttons connected to hyperlinks. Each button is able to lead a path to another page.

The Amazing Power of the Mechanical Pencil

During a research about the Uni Kuru Toga mechanical pencil, I studied how important is the pencil to writing. Writing helps us release our thoughts on paper. Did you know that modern pencils owe it all to an ancient Roman writing instrument called a stylus? Scribes used this thin metal rod to leave a light, but readable mark on papyrus (an early form of paper). Other early styluses were made of lead, which is what we still call pencil cores, even though they actually are made of non-toxic graphite. But pencil history doesn’t stop there… Graphite came into widespread use following the discovery of a large graphite deposit in Borrowdale, England in 1564. Appreciated for leaving a darker mark than lead, the mineral proved so soft and brittle that it required a holder. Originally, graphite sticks were wrapped in string. Later, the graphite was inserted into hollowed-out wooden sticks and, thus, the wood-cased pencil was born! (6) From using feathers to write with ink to evolving to a sti…

Thoughts on UX/UI Web Experience

Nordstrom
I like the website. It is simple and the introduction is exciting. The way is presented speaks for itself through the principles of design. The emphasis point models more than the product the models wear. It visually feels comfortable; the information is centered and unified which at least makes it easier to follow. Truly feels rhythmic, thanks to the color scheme is well-graded between the product and the background. It reveals that the designer thought out formally how to enlighten the flow of colors throughout the website. If you feel closely, it goes from cold to warm, top to bottom. It is a clothing store so it is more important to point out the creativity; it becomes part as a strategy for business. Their strategy is to appear what’s new and popular at the top and, while scrolling down, the newsfeed is found directed within the same structure from the top.I treat the update as the activity flow. The colors focus mainly on the positive; it implies more space to the viewe…

A view that held during the industrialization and the progress of social reform that went hand by hand which characterizes Morris to bring the attitude to initiate the movement.
