All About Colors ( part 01 )

Image courtesy :

In Ancient Greece, Aristotle developed the first known theory of color.
He believed that God sent down color from the heavens as celestial rays. Additionally, his theory of color related to the four elements: water, air, earth, and fire.
Aristotle theorized that color was a property of surfaces and not the result of light absorption and/or reflection. From these he drew upon experiences and correlations where he based his color theories. Moreover, he suggests that all color originate from white and black with origins in lightness and darkness.

iPhone 5

I designed the iPhone 5 model based on the previous versions of iPhone and iPod. While you compare 4 and 5, you can find the differences in size and icon arrangements.

To design this, I have taken the basic characteristics of iPhone 3 and iPhone 4. It’s just an idea that came to randomly in my mind. Actually Apple not yet released the iPhone 5 model. 

I hope iPhone 5 might look like this and I have working on some other designs for iPhone 5, soon it will appear in my blog.


Yellow is the most luminous of all the colors of the spectrum. It’s the color that captures our attention more than any other color. So that we called “yellow is color of queen”. It’s the color of happiness, and optimism, of enlightenment and creativity, sunshine and spring.
In nature world..
Yellow is the color of Flowers, fruits, butterflies and bees.
In human-made world
Yellow is the color of Sponge Bob, happy faces, post it’s, and signs that alert us to danger or caution.

Yellow is considered the brightest and most energizing of the warm colors. It’s associated with happiness and sunshine and it’s is also associated with hope, as can be seen in some countries when yellow ribbons are displayed by families who have loved ones at war. Yellow is also associated with danger, though not as strongly as red.
Yellow is full of creative and intellectual energy.
How the color yellow affects us mentally and physically
·         Mentally stimulating
·         Stimulates the nervous system
·         Activates memory
·         Encourages communication
 For Designers
Use yellow to perk up a more subdued cool palette of blues and grays. Use lemon yellow with orange to carry out a healthy, summery, citrus theme. Very pale yellows can work as neutrals alongside darker or richer colors. Yellow and blue are a high contrast, eye-popping combination. Mix yellow with neutral gray and a dash of black for a high-tech look. Try a hot, exciting mix of red and yellow. For an earthy palette, especially for fall, mix yellow, olive green, and brown. 

How to delete a Facebook account...

Deleting a Facebook account is a bit more complicated than many other services. There are two options for getting rid of your FB account, one that’s permanent and complete, and one that lets you change your mind later.
If you just want to shut down your account for a little while, with the option to reactivate it later, you can deactivate your account. This is simple: just go into your account settings and click on the “deactivate account” link. This immediately makes your account invisible to everyone else on Facebook. If you decide at a later date that you want to reactivate your account, it’s as simple as reactivating.

If you’re looking for something a little more permanent, though, you’ll need to submit a request to Facebook. The tricky thing here, though, is that they don’t immediately delete your account, and if at any time before it’s permanently deleted you log in or otherwise interact with Facebook, your deletion request will be canceled. For that reason, it’s a good idea to go around to any computers or devices (like your mobile phone) that you access your account through and log out (deleting saved passwords is also a good idea to prevent an accidental login).

Then you can use the form found here3 to request deletion. Remember not to log into your account at any point after that. There doesn’t seem to be any official notice on how long it takes, but unofficial reports say 14 days. To be on the safe side, you may want to wait a month or more before attempting to login to confirm your account has been deleted.

More information on deleting your Facebook account can be found in their FAQs4.

The Faces of Design Awards 2011 | Faces of Design

The Faces of Design Awards 2011 | Faces of Design

Faces of Design (FoD) is inviting submissions to the Faces of Design Awards 2011, a yearly design portfolio competition, raising the visibility of hot talent worldwide. Join the Faces of Design Awards for your chance to shine, and to have your work showcased to international design leaders – including manufacturers, design studios, journalists and design associations.

The Faces of Design Awards are based on candidates’ existing portfolios, and culminate in the publication of a printed volume, highlighting the 25 most promising design talents by design discipline (e.g. graphic, interior or fashion design). This collection of profiles will be distributed to over 1.000 key decision makers at more than 300 companies, including firms such as Vitra, IKEA, the Richemont Group (including prestigious brands such as Montblanc, Cartier and Chloé), the design press, and designers’ studios such as the Campanas’ and Bouroullecs’.

On top of this, the three candidates with the most panel votes overall will receive special individual promotion with one company of their choice – for example, last year’s top candidates had the opportunity to meet the Head of Design at Kvadrat, Anne Jørgensen, and the Head of Design Management at Vitra, Eckart Maise.

To promote emerging talents in particular, there is a special discount to encourage student participation in the competition, and participation grants to support design talent from developing countries.
