Chuck Green's Design Links Briefing 35
Lots of interesting finds this month--links that (to my way of thinking) feature ideas and inspiration for designers and marketers.
P.S. Coming soon, a new ideabook.com.
1 > Learning > The Art Directors Invitational Master Class
No only is this an interesting design--the conference it represents is touted as the "essential hands-on instructional gathering where top art directors, designers, illustrators, and photographers come together to learn about the hottest creativity tools and techniques using Adobe products as well as the latest technology from Apple Computer." Past instructors include some Adobe heavyweights--Russell Preston Brown, Adobe's Senior Creative Director, Julieanne Kost, Digital Imaging Evangelist, and Adam Pratt, Application Engineer.

2 > Design ideas
Great energy on this page--the burst stripes draw your eye to the center--the imagery is interesting and fun.

Haven't seen this pale yellow, gray/green combination for a while. It provides a great neutral palette.

A good example of how to fit a lot of information in a small space. (Download the 3MB document to get the full effect.)
Roger Black continues to reinvent his signature palette to great effect: Giza and Interstate typefaces and black, red, and white space.

3 > Layers Magazine: The Assertive Palette
I contributed a column to the November/December 2006 issue of Layers Magazine--The How-To Magazine for Everything Adobe. The magazine is published by Photoshop guru Scott Kelby's KW Media Group. A good publication run by folks who understand the art of teaching. Hope you'll check it out. Here > http://www.layersmagazine.com/magazine.html
