I'm far from a professional photographer, I'm more of an enthusiast and I love to play around with my Canon G9. It's not an SLR camera but it works really fine for my skills and, also, it does RAW; everything I need for my addiction to HDR. I still have a lot to learn but I thought it would be nice to share some of my experiments.

Another day I was talking to a friend of my, and he told me that he would love to see more posts about web design here at Abduzeedo. When he told me that, I totally understood that we're kind of posting just about photography and illustration... and only Fabiano is doing something about web with his tutorials and links in the Best of the Week series. So today, web design it is!
funny · advertising · clever
One of the biggest challenges when advertising a product, is to come up with an idea that is not obvious, but still is clever enough to deliver the message your client wants. When you do that and still manage to be funny, you hit the jackpot. Here are some examples of clever advertising and how a simple idea might be just the right one to go with.
Previously we've shown how to make a small layout on fireworks based on the 9rules desing. Now we're going to show you how to set this to code up. We're gonna explain everything, from slicing in Fireworks to setting the css in the code.
This week we've got an exclusive wallpaper from SA3S, the creative outlet of Dean Cook, an awesome designer from the UK. We strongly recommend you to visit his portfolio and to check his awesome works! He's got some wicked stuff there! Enjoy! Cheers.
We begin this week with fresh works from a polish designer named Adam Spizak. He's got great pieces and I would like to share them with you. Adam makes cool compositions, using pictures, vectors, making awesome, colorful illustrations. We'd love to get this dude interviewed! What do you guys think about it? Anyways, have a wonderful week, you all!
This post will tell about the amazing art of packaging- and product design, because it's very amazing how professional companies and even just people with a nice experience with a computer can come up with great results. Enjoy!
The program formerly known as "Project Wukong" has been released a few days ago as Essential HDR.

I thought that these classic and modern designs on plates were pretty good. As some of you may see, there are some nice shapes inside the plates design. There are also some colours that go well together will the design. Here they are...

I've already seen some of these sometimes before, and it's really amazing who these dudes manage to make such realistic 3D paintings, messing with nothing but our perception. And I just wonder whether or not this is just a hobbie for them, or is it their actual income source. Anyways, Julian Beever and Kurt Wenner are trully talented artists.
motion graphics · credits · title sequence · tv · film · animation
I love motion graphics and animation. One thing I look for when I go to the cinema or watch a TV program is a nicely designed title and/or credit sequence. It's not absolutely necessary, but if it's there, and done right, it adds a new level of enjoyment to the film or show. I feel like there has been a bunch of great sequences lately so I thought I'd post a few that I liked.
We've already featured him here at Abduzeedo, in the last Wallpaper of the Week. He's a designer from Australia, with a passion for art and design. He's got some great work in his portfolio, and I'd like to share it with you. His name is Christopher Haines. He's works are really cool, and go from photo manipulation to illustration.
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.
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?
video · music · Beck · Danger Mouse · Gnarls Barkley
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.
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.
Today is the grand opening of The Dark Knight, and we are all really excited! How much butt will this movie kick? A LOT. And to celebrate its opening, we're making a collection of all Batman Movies Posters (or just the best ones, as you wish). We had several Batman movies already, in which Michael Keaton, Val Kilmer and George Clooney played the Dark Knight.
