cooperhewitt.orgMacro Micro Marks | Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design MuseumTo celebrate the opening of Saturated: The Allure and Science of Color (May 11, 2018-January 13, 2019), Object of the Day this month will feature colorful objects from the exhibition. Graphic designer Fanette Mellier (French, b. 1977) has a contemporary practice that frequently highlights process in the printed medium. Her stunning poster, Specimen, initially appears abstract. Dominated by repeated patterns of bright colors and black, grey, and white shapes, almost the entire surface area of the poster is filled. As if taking in a mosaic, the eye is overwhelmed, darting between saturated hues, and the poster's imposing height (approaching 6 feet tall) adds to the effect. Upon closer examination, and perhaps immediately to those in graphic design and publishing fields, the poster's dense imagery is quite familiar: it is made up entirely of color bars, a type of printers' control marks. Used to check color accuracy, density and consistency across multiple pages, the bars are printed
thetechedvocate.orgAre Virtual Schools Good for Kids?Spread the loveWith the birth of advanced technology has come advancement in the classroom.

While teaching about the ocean, a teacher may have a slideshow, a film, and a computer research or graphic design assignment. Unique ways of teaching allow the teacher …
brooklynstreetart.comBlue Steel from the Streets. Colombia Diary : Day 4 / Interview with ERREColombian Street Artist Erre began her career on the street in her home city of Zipaquirá as a teen but moved an hour’s drive south to the capital city Bogotá a few years ago to attend university and dive into the explosively growing scene on the streets there. ERRE. Colombia. (photo © Jaime Rojo) With nightly outings in the larger metropolis, she and some mates have used political themes of their punk-inspired graphic works to push social attitudes about corruption, hypocrisy, race and gender equality. With strong female figures that shout confidence and rock and roll, you can see the ERRE is helping define the kind of heroines she admires who take and active role in making change. ERRE. Colombia. (photo © Jaime Rojo) After assisting Toxicomano to complete his large mural for this project, Erre had some free time to hit up some prime spots of her own in this distillery. Sometimes she worked freehand, and other times she dug into the stencils that she typically leaves on the walls in Bogotá. ERRE. Colombia. (photo © Jaime Rojo) We asked her a few questions about her work. Brooklyn Street Art: “Unete Al Disorden”. What does that mean? Erre: “Join the chaos” - or something similar. I am inviting people to join in. ERRE. Colombia. (photo © Jaime Rojo) BSA: When did you begin making art for the street? ERRE: My first stencil was about 10 years ago and I have done many stencils in my home city Zipaquirá. About five years ago I decided I would begin painting for a living and I have dedicated myself to this work. BSA: Do you always use stencils? ERRE: I always paint with stencils but sometimes I make an exception and do a piece by hand ERRE. Colombia. (photo © Jaime Rojo) BSA: Can you talk about the stencil that you made here which appears to be a message of empowerment for women and girls? ERRE: Yes for women in Colombia there is a big problem – really in all of Latin America – with the rights of women. They do not receive equal pay for equal work, they do not get enough respect. There is a strong culture of machismo that exists with the men all of the time. So a lot of my work is intended to empower women. BSA: Where do you get inspiration for your style? ERRE: I think I draw a lot of inspiration from cartoons and illustrations like that. I draw all of the designs in a smaller size with the computer I enlarge them for this work ERRE. Colombia. (photo © Jaime Rojo) BSA: You often have skulls in your pieces. Can you talk about the symbolism of using skulls for you? ERRE: Yes I use the skulls as an human symbol because everyone has a skull inside you know? It's a way for me to represent humans and people generally without referring to their race whether they are black, brown, yellow or white. It is sort of a universal symbol. ERRE. Colombia.
