Art Direction & Advertising: Everything is okay Until it's not.

Art Direction & Advertising: Everything is okay Until it's not.

Let's take a look at this art direction & advertising campaign proposal by designer Rui Gonçalves for Reliance Life Insurance. That tagline is pretty neat and tells the story of the two pieces very well. You just gotta love the layered composed elements and also the perspective that gives you a unique puzzle of the global situation. Props to the post-production skills from Rui who does a very job to express the behind-the-scenes. And also sharing his frame-by-frame process so we can get inspired from. Rui Gonçalves is an art director/graphic designer based in Barcelon, Spain. By the quality of his work, I am surprised we have never featured his work. Check out more of his work via Behance.

Photo Retouching by DESCONSTRUTORA

Photo Retouching by DESCONSTRUTORA

Retouching and digital art can turn a simple photo into an amazing composition, from basic adjustments in contrast, saturation and colorization to light and other special effects. It's always amazing to see the work of these professionals. I used to spend hours after work trying to recreate such compositions in order to learn how to do the same in Photoshop. Seeing the work of DESCONSTRUTORA for the DESCMAG COLLECTION is certainly an inspiration for me to start practicing more. DESCONSTRUTORA is a digital studio from Brazil working with photography, photo retouching and illustration. They try to turn creative ideas into real projects.

Bringing Historic Photos to Life

Bringing Historic Photos to Life

Going through history is such a beautiful learning experience and also very fascinating. We've found some old black and white photos going through some bequtiful treatment, all of them are done by artists that use a mix of historical reference and of course some really good judgement for the colours. Hope you will enjoy them!
