Here is an opportunity to look at the behind-the-scenes graphic design work for the movie Beauty and the Beast; a closer look at their countdown social campaign before the release. I like the choice of the font throughout this whole campaign although not used everywhere. You will notice there is a different design depending on the representation of the movie scene. Props to the work from Sean Hobman who is a freelance art director/designer working with the folks from Watson DG who are pretty known in working with various Hollywood releases.

Published on Behance, this is a project in collaboration between Sean Hobman and the mighty folks from Watson DG. They are both located in different location from London, UK to Los Angeles, California.

CreativeLive will host a free, interactive, multi-day class on negotiation and workplace communication for creative of all stripes – designers, photographers, musicians, actors, etc. Beginning June 23, author, design powerhouse, and entrepreneur Ted Leonhardt will share his expertise over three days of live education designed to help creatives negotiate the salaries they deserve.

Leonhardt will help explore negotiating as a collaboration in which creatives guide those they are negotiating with. Students will learn how to use time and context to define opportunities, create contracts instead of proposals, and align people with their vision. “Creatives are vastly underpaid, vastly undervalued for what they contribute,” explains Leonhardt, “what I’ve learned is that knowing the value of your expertise and how to leverage it is the most powerful foundation for negotiating a great deal with anybody.”

Nearly 4 months into the new year and it has been very productive so I wanted to highlight a couple of interests. Just before the doors closed on 2012 I was fortunate to reengage with a local entrepreneur who opens businesses that many of us just dream about. Naturally anyone creative would want to be a part of his vision/s so I met with owner Ray Willis to discuss ideas surrounding his new business – RC Cars of Boston. We collaborated previously on his identity for Spadafora Choppers so RC Cars of Boston purposefully ties strongly to the Spadafora brand. Spadafora Choppers was a big success so I’m hoping as this new identity continues rolling out it will be matched with equal excitement and praise.

For the past few years I’ve also been working with a great organization named Boston Health Care for the Homeless Program. It’s a dedicated team of highly motivated individuals coming together for a great cause. Colleagues I’ve worked with in the past recommended the opportunity which was a chance to give back and help those less fortunate. My charge was to help call to attention and promote an annual sock drive also supported by the Boston Red Sox. I designed a unique logo “One Size Fits All” which was applied to posters, direct mail and online. Additionally I’ve worked with BHCHP to design their marathon T-Shirts each year so it’s more than rewarding to produce creative that really makes a difference.

“Steve Jobs was unlike any other,” the world body said through a spokesperson. “He saw what others did not. He believed above all else in the power of human ingenuity – to create ‘tools’ that people could use, that would not only improve our lives but, quite literally, change the world. He was a truly global force.

“Steve was such an ‘original,’ with a thoroughly creative, imaginative mind that defined an era. Despite all he accomplished, it feels like he was just getting started.
