FYI: A Contest at YouTheDesigner

U-Printing

Our friends over at YouTheDesigner.com are running a fun contest, sponsored along with iStockPhoto and U-Printing. Behance has agreed to help serve as a judge. We’re also told that here will be multiple rounds in which artists will build on previous round wiinners’ works. This community approach should be interesting to watch. Worth checking out!

Some Sites We Like: End of June

Studio 469′s blog has great design (no surprise, given their incredible work), imagery, and insights. For inspiration and great resources, we encourage you to check it out.

And, we’re fans of another blog all about creativity, insights, and ideas. The blog is titled “Login + Emotion.” We were also quite impressed by a recent analysis of the ecosystems of agencies. Behance often contemplates how the concept of an “agency” in the creative world will evolve over time. We suggest you check out David Armano’s posting on the topic.

Observe the Observer!

Design Observer

Design Observer has a great eye for the convergence of design and culture. The site takes an enlightening, historical perspective on how design evolves around us. We commend Michael, William, and Jessica for their work developing such a great spark every few days for our creative minds.

The Art of the Presentation

Garr Reynold keeps a helpful blog about all-things presentation, Presentation Zen.  As we are entering the creative professional era, we need to start thinking about how creative professionals present themselves and their work professionally (see one Behance article on a similar topic here).

Garr has a great article on Ben Zander, legendary performer, that makes the case for taking risk, empowering others, etc…but all in a creative context.
