Movies in Color is a site featuring stills from movies along with their corresponding color palettes. Curated by graphic designer named Roxy Radulescu, the site Movie in Color is updated daily. It’s a beautiful tool that shows the relationship between color, cinematography and production design. The idea started when I was watching Skyfall. I was taken with the cinematography and use of color more-so than the story itself.
Back to the 80's

Superheroes are awesome, but they are not invulnerable to the economy and inflation. Some things go much more expensive throughout all these years. For example, the Batmobile in 1939 would cost just $600, while the cost in 2013 would jump to $18 million. Emil Lendof put together some really cool infographics showing the price of being a superhero now comparing with their origins, including Superman, Batman, Spider-man, Hulk and Wolverine Got the opportunity to work on the layout of text and graphics on these Superhero infographics for Mashable, sponsored by Samsung.
The easiest way to learn in my opinion is by observing other peoples work, paying attention to the details and how some problems are overcome. That for me is more useful than a tutorial because it requires me not only attention but also makes me think on how I could do that with my set of skills. That's why case studies are extremely valuable. They show the evolution but without giving instructions.
