Nowadays, the majority of indie bands have a growing collection of poster art that is just too incredible to simply throw away once the show has ended. Not surprisingly, this has led to the gig poster being something of a collectors item for music fanatics everywhere. The following are 50 hand picked gig posters whose creativity and imagination blew me away."

What Popular Movies Can Teach Us About Design

It’s a pretty safe bet to say that the vast majority of people like movies. They’re usually entertaining and sometimes even informative or thought-provoking. But most designers probably don’t pay too much attention to how they might be able to offer inspiration for website or other designs.

But most movies, especially those with large budgets, have extensive art direction and production design happening to make sure the entire look of the movie is exactly the way the screenwriter and director have envisioned it. Whether it’s a fantasy film, a family movie, a historical drama, or anything in between, there’s a good chance that a team of dozens of people worked hard to make sure the visual design of the film was absolutely perfect.

Below are a number of popular films from the past few years. Many of these have won awards for their art direction and production design, but not all of them have. In addition to the stills included below, try to watch some or all of these films with an eye on the design of the sets and costumes, as well as how the characters interact with them.

Eh, at the end of the day it's just one article. Googling the topic brings many results. You're welcome to post one, if you like.

Preparing Photoshop Files for Web Developers

Whether you’re a freelance web designer or part of a team at an agency, handing off Photoshop files to a client, developer, development team or even another designer is part of the process of building websites.

Whereas the development process is generally more structured, by contrast, the design process is quite often spontaneous and full of experimentation. This can lead to a host of unused and unnamed layers that don’t end up as part of the final approved design. For developers, sifting through a quagmire of unnamed layers (Layer 1, Layer 1 copy, etc.) can be confusing and time consuming.
