Crazy Cool Vectors in Illustrator and Photoshop

In this tutorial I will show you how to create a very nice image inspired by the amazing work of Andy Gilmore. If you don't know who he is, I highly recommend you to check his work out. He creates images combining vectors and blend modes to create astonishing designs, and that is what we are going to do.

Video of the Week #17

One of the greatest things about design is how some people get to use classic references in their work. This week's video has that classic touch, and uses the theme song from 1952 film, Singing in the Rain. But not only uses the song, they also manage to turn the song into something new, yet, really enjoyable. Now add a dude breakdancing. Cool, huh?

Beck delves further into the 60's with Modern Guilt

Beck's new album Modern Guilt is out now and I'm digging its groovy 60's vibe. It's a little bit more psychedelic and moodier than his previous more upbeat and funky albums like Odelay and Midnight Vultures, but is definitely worth checking out if you're a fan.

In The Mod Palette Generator - 2 licenses giveaway

When designing we have to think about the goals of our project, the audience and what we want them to feel when seeing our design. Among all areas of a design project, color selection is one of the most important. They can make our design look cold, warm, retro, futuristc, vintage, etc.

Abduzeedo has became a reference in the Internet when the subject is HDR posts. It's a huge pleasure for us to find those cool pictures and post it here for you. But now, George Wilson, a student from the UK, has written us an email, telling his experiences with HDR. Really cool! Here it is:

Awesome Concept Cars

Hi everyone, I'm a new writer here at Adbuzeedo. I love all things design (like most of you reading this) and this is my first posting and I hope you enjoy it. I've seen many concept cars in my lifetime, whether on the web or at a car show, but I've never seen anything like these before. These concepts come from the Royal College of Art (I'm guessing that's in the UK somewhere).

First International Trailer for Max Payne

It's been some time since I got this hyped in a morning. During my regular visits to First Showing (a must visit for all movie freaks), I ran into something I wasn't expecting: the 1st friggin' international trailer for the Max Payne movie. And I know the preview picture isn't from the movie, but from the game, but it's totally cool.

It's always great to find some "unknown" artist who makes good art. Tom Krieger is one of those... he makes really beautiful illustration, airbrush and all that. Thank God I found his deviantART account... we had only his Flickr account, with only a few works. And man, he's even better than I thought.
