graphics

 

    Reality is displayed to us through light and vibration.  What we see in the world is merely a reflection of the total energies that comprise all of existence.  When we seek to encapsulate and convey reality to others, we create symbols which represent places, things, people and ideas.  These symbols are called Graphics.

     What makes a good graphic? A good graphic is first and foremost something which accurately represents the thing that it is a symbol for, and beyond that exaggerates and emphasizes the most important parts of the original thing — it must have a design.

    What makes a good graphic design? Design follows one basic principle, colloquially referred to as “the golden ratio,” which is a universal constant of growth and display which follows a mathematical formula that is both perfectly balanced and infinitely scalable.

     Essentially, graphic design is the reduction of something large and vast into something small and poignant. A representative. An emissary. A bridge. Graphic design communicates ideas, and good graphic design shouts catchy lyrics into the eyeballs of the audience, burning the message clearer and clearer into the mind; good graphic design is unforgettable.

     The secret to great imagery is graphic design.  We concentrate on spacing, rhythm, flow, and emphasis coupled with vibrant colors and stark visual contrast to make our imagery jump out at audiences.

     Logos originally means the word, plan, or reason — for everything, for the cosmos, defining it and giving it meaning.  The word logic itself comes from logos — That’s why it is important to design around logos — they are the core imagery of meaning in the design of so many different things;  logos make brands logical to audiences.
