Inspiration: Creative Images and Visual Experiments

Like many other designers, are often looking for graphics and pictures to inspire and make my creative projects: a particular test, an original effect of a gallery for photos, designs and colors for customers outside the box eccentric … anything, provided it is able to hit immediately and visually effective.

In the time I picked up several “visual experiments” created by designer / photographer / whatever on duty, some because they were able to intrigue me, because others have inspired me for some work. However, regardless of how I (or I) made, each of these projects I have been very stimulating for the imagination and at the same time, reminded me that art is above all want to get involved and originality (and maybe a little dose of madness, why not).

Do not believe me? we’re seeing.

Pictures? No, book covers and magazines

A truly original photographic experiment: to match perfectly unknown faces in images gleaned from magazines and book covers, in a perfect mix and the limits of the paradox. Much creativity and much editing, and the effect is really exciting.

A giant leap backward

If you are a lover of vintage photos in black and white or sepia tones in the warm, this project is for you: romantic union of past and present for a truly beautiful sight.

Some faces money … VIP

And ordinary humans:

Pencil against camera

This graphic design is nothing short of wonderful. It will be because I’m a lover of photography and at the same time a fetishist (pass me the term) of charcoal drawings, but the fine detail and originality of the subjects are very difficult to emulate. Graphic idea of great inspiration for projects in-style grunge hand drawn.

Another great effect that I have seen too often in web design, the effect is “off the border” with the characters of the photos, with a very special effect 3d, seem out of the picture frame.

Eiffel Tower Plastic …

Perhaps it is quite useful, but originality is definitely rewarded: the idea is to replace the great architectural works or not, the corresponding models of plastic, they are souvenirs or whatever.The optical effect is very nice, is not it?
