Both digital and print have their pros and cons but the real challenge with both these industries is trying to maintain and build an audience as well as producing content that is engaging and relevant. Over the past few years, the digital age has made a major impact on how business is done and how consumers are engaged. However, in the age-old battle of print versus digital, why is it that print still comes out on top?

A couple of reason for that is:

People like engaging with print materials

Print can truly captivate readers

A good example of this argument is with books.

E-books vs Printed books.

It is said that in 2018 e-book sale had gone down whereas physical book sales had risen.

At one point there was a fear that e-books were taking over, but luckily physical books are making a come back.

My view on e-books and printed books -

I like both of them. E-books are handy and more portable without carrying the weight of physical books. They are great for travelling especially those that read a lot of books quickly.

But physical books have a nice feel while reading them, and lot of people like the smell of books new or old. I also feel physical books have a lot more value than e-books.

Vintage design is ageless and connected to history we always look back to for inspiration for eye catching and unique design ideas.

What I have noticed, art nouveau seems to be making a come back. The Le Chat Noir poster created by Theophile Steinlen in1896 is a perfect example of art nouveau.

Art Nouveau was most popular between 1890 and 1910 known as a international style of art and architecture. It is characterised by its use of a long, sinuous, organic line.

Another great way to come up with ideas for design projects when researching is creating mind maps. Mind-mapping has been around since the 70s, and is a great way to explore thoughts and ideas. In the graphic design industry mindmaps help designers communicate to clients, team members and professors while in a design’s concept phase.

I created a mind map for each of my chosen Zodiac to get an understanding behind each sign.
