July 25, 2011 Seven Logos by Penny Lane Graphics Seleceted for Design Book
This week, Penny Lane Graphics, Lititz, Pennsylvania was honored by having seven logos included in the new David E. Carter book, Trademarks 1 - Bright Ideas in Logo Design from Around the World.
While Carter has a long history of creating hard-cover books that are big sellers around the world, the new book is unlike all the 114 other books he has produced. The new book is the very first graphic design book that is released exclusively as an eBook, and is available at www.brightbooks.com.
Carter explains his transition from ink-on-paper to eBooks: "I watched with interest at Amazon's Kindle changed the book industry. But -- the Kindle is black and white. I envisioned a day when my color graphic design compilations could be available as eBooks. Once the iPad came out, that opened the gates for me. That was just the beginning. Now, ebooks can be read on virtually any computer."
The book includes nearly 2,000 logo designs from around the world, whichwere chosen from over 6,000 pieces that were submitted. "I was very happy to have the work of Bill Dussinger of Penny lane Graphics included in the book, as he had some of the most outstanding work that was submitted," Carter said.
Carter previously had a long-term relationship with HarperCollins, the global publishing giant. Now, he's exclusively published by www.brightbooks.com.
Carter's books are available online in the ePUB format, which is compatible with the iPad, the Nook (from Barnes & Noble) Adobe Digital Editions, and many other readers. Most of the reading devices are available for free download for use on computers.
Carter is most excited because his new eBook presence makes his graphic design books available to a much larger audience - especially the young creative people who are the future of the industry.
Carter explained, "my ink-on-paper books sold for $49.95 - and they took 6-8 months to get into print after the final edit. Now, my books are available within an hour after final edit, and the price is anywhere from $12.99 to $14.99. Imagine what that price difference means to students who want to be inspired by the best new work out there in the graphic design world." And, Carter said, "that doesn't even consider the time advantage. My books are out 6 to 8 months sooner now -- so the work in my books is truly fresh."
"This is where I want to be in the book world - leading the revolution in bringing creative compilations to eBooks, which is the future of book publishing." Carter said.
July 12, 2011 A Day in the Life of John Lasseter
I am a huge fan of Pixar and Disney. John Lasseter is one of my all-time heroes. He has a secret room in his house for his trains! He has 370 Hawaiian shirts! His office is full of toys! Wtach this full 25-minute mini-documentary, titled “A Day in a Life,” follows Lasseter through his day from playroom to screening room during the production of “Cars 2.”
This is probably most revealing look yet at Lasseter’s managerial style and creative approach, as he gives out morning hugs and “cheerleads” for the film, all while running through a parade of directorial decisions big and small. Quite the busy day.
And everywhere, it seems, is the world-class talent artists practicing their magic behind every studio door. What a dream to be able to work with Mr. Lasseter.
