MESSAGE FROM

THE EDITOR

Art creates culture. Culture shapes values. Values determine the future.

The fascination of art has to do with time. Visual art is the quickest of all serious cultural forms to make its full nature clear to the beholder. It's worth dwelling on the rapidity of art. It is conventional, in the moralizing rhetoric of the critic, to say Rembrandt repays a lot more time than most works of art - you can look at his pictures for a lifetime and still find new depth in them. But what if this is not the most important thing about great art? What if it's the instant effect that matters? So it's not always true that great art takes a long time to appreciate and instantaneous art is shallow. In fact, some of the most revered paintings can be appreciated much more quickly than video art - which has, as I've already conceded, brought narrative time into the gallery. Why is timebased art so popular? Does it seem more important because it takes up time? Personally, I agree with Leonardo da Vinci. The most magical thing in art is the instant and complete image.

“LOVE ART AND LOVE INPRINT MAGAZINE AS MUCH AS WE DO”

DESIGN PHOTOGRAPHY FOOD FASHION ILLUSTRATION LITERATURE PEOPLE

For the greatest inspiration of Art and Artists, the priority is to "lose oneself." Ultimately, an artist is motivated to realize that Higher Self, the completely inspired Self every artist know in their moments of pure expression.. the making of love that motivates pure inspiration. This is when what IS is! These are our spires of inspiration. True words of motivation are like best religious inspirational sayings. This almost incomprehensible motivation embodies the I AM of Moses, the burning bosom, the undressing of flesh to reveal a naked soul, as if touching and tasting dewdrops of spilt blood. Emotional scars upon souls often scream within chalices of pain; nonetheless, tongues can reach hitherto heights, waxing wicks of flight seeking to soar as the light embodies the words of motivation herself.

ROGERIO GEO

COLLAGE-ART Rogerio's work is very unique and vibrant, he adds color and shapes to bring interest to each piece. He has used many different materials in his artwork, that is what creates the story in each piece. RogĂŠrio Geo is skateboarder and artist by passion and soul. He lives in Bahia, Brazil and is 24 years old.

H

is works represent the underground and have been displayed in national and international exhibitions, including solo exhibitions and publications in various media of communication. "My work is my truth, my opinions in concrete ways based on the

collages I create. They also express my theories on various aspects of human beings in our society, with all the great influence acquired by music and the underground". I like to expand my

work with textures that give a different meaning to them. I always try to portrait through my art a bit of sadness and happiness and most of them are are a self expression of me as a human being I am today.

THE ONE HUNDRED WORLDS OF RON MIRIELLO PHOTOGRAPHY: KING ARTHUR

A designer, an artist, a sculptor, a collector and a business man‌ Ron Miriello has a wide and diverse set of artistic interests. With a strong European influence, Ron values art as much as design, and that really shows in his works.

Tell us a little bit about your background and what Miriello Graphico is about? I got a BFA from Colorado State University in the 70's and got a scholarship the last year to go to Italy and study there. That completely spun my head around and made me discover another new world that has changed my life since then. I stayed in Italy for a year and half, and that was when I moved to California and started my own studio in the late 70's. My career path is to build a portfolio in a slow period of time and continually grow and improve it. That has been the case for the last 30 years. I rarely worked for anybody else. Everything I have learned is an influence of my own experience. My studio was just me for the first 10 to 12 years, then a got a crew. I would say that Miriello Graphico became known as a place for well-crafted work that has more of an international approach design rather than the original approach. The ability to go to large corporations and figure out their problems, take their process and procedures. Even small firms like working with us, just because we are very well organized and also very creative. In 2013 the company is focused on the aviation and strategy thinking of problem solving that goes on before design happens. And that sums up pretty much what the company is today. February 2013

JOAQUIN ORTIZ & JEFF KATZ ARE PROVIDERS

| February 2013

at the tender age of 10 that Cofounders of Provider, Joaquin Ortiz and Jeff Katz began their lifelong friendship. They remained close throughout grade school, but as college approached the two lost touch as they began separate lives. While they were apart, Joaquin had two extremely close brushes with death. In 2001, his vehicle took a 60-foot dive off of a cliff. His real wake-up call came in 2006 though, when he found himself crushed between a boat and an SUV. Though the doctor told him that he would probably never walk again due to his fractured sacrum, Joaquin’s response was simply, “No. I won’t accept that.” With an attitude of perseverance, Joaquin walked back into the hospital with

just the assistance of a walking cane six months later. Realizing that… “It’s not enough just to survive, after you survive what do you do?” Joaquin began to think, “What can I do?” From that soulsearching question came Provider, a clothing company that acts as a reminder that we ALL have something positive to contribute to society. The idea, while simple in concept, is massive in impact: What can I provide for someone else? During this time, Jeff, who was still working in marketing in San Diego, was also looking for a way to give back to his community. So when fate—and Facebook—reunited him with Joaquin Ortiz, he knew he had found the perfect use for his talents and desire to be a part of something greater. After ten years of living separate lives, their reunion has grown organically into a promising partnership. Joaquin started his movement on the streets of Miami by bringing construction workers bottles of water and paying the toll for the cars behind him on the Biscayne Bay Bridge. “No kind act is too small” he said, performing one Conscious Act of Kindness after the other. With

ng

Jeff on board, Joaquin realized that his vision could become a reality and the two transformed the Conscious Acts of Kindness movement into a 501(c)3 nonprofit company with a magnetic following. A percentage of all Provider sales go directly to the 501(c)3 Conscious Acts of Kindness which has funded projects all over the United States as well as abroad in Pushkar India, Bali Indonesia and Senegal West Africa. Provider’s purpose is to create an article of clothing that carries a message of love, compassion and joy; when you are wearing Provider you are that messenger. You are a Provider to everything and everyone around you.

BROCK DAVIS - ARTIST | USA

Brock Davis does not like honeybears. But, he does like creating art work using simple techniques and tools. His project called, Make Something Cool Everyday challenged him to create a work of art using photography, drawing, mixed media, and/or some exacto knives each day of the year.

ILLUSTRATION the work in this series was produced between 2010 and 2011, and marks the beginning of a preoccupation with concepts of photographic realism, digital and analogue reproduction, and the distribution of images online. Although Amy's current work has progressed beyond these topics, this project created a foundation for further experimentation in drawing and photography.

READING: Learning graphic design is a lifelong process, so graphic design students don’t worry: you’ll have plenty of time becoming an expert in your field. This said, I know that when you are getting started you are really eager to learn more quicker, that’s why I’m suggesting a selection of design books that are in my opinion worth reading for graphic design students, but also for others

1. Making and breaking the grid

Some graphic designers are crazy about using grids in their designs, others despise it because they feel it makes all layouts look the same (or at least they think so). Even if you are one of those grid-haters, you should know what is a grid and how to use it.

2013: What to expect When You’re Designing? STORY: Kimon Foundoulakis

T

he creative arts are, by nature, a constantly changing and evolving field, and 2013 is no different. In fact, this year marks a big departure from what we’ve seen before, almost a revolution in design trends in which colors, interfaces and layouts are now, more than ever, conceived to adapt to the latest technology available rather than the other way around. Tablets, ultrabooks and smartphones are now providing the templates to which designers are applying their ideas, and companies like Microsoft with Windows 8, Apple IOS and Google among others are paving the way to how apps and websites are being imagined. Aesthetically, designers have decided not to hold back anymore and get their message across no holds barred. Layouts are clean and spacious, colors are kept to a minimum and fonts are big and imposing.

There will without a doubt be an uprising of designers and developers alike who are going to strive for a very straight-forward approach to the way they tackle to the drawing boards in 2013 and beyond.

Hand-Drawn Illustration

Now this one had long ago become a niche domain that always had its specialists and fans, and with vintage design making a strong come-back over the last few years, we’ve seen a new generation of grass-roots illustrators putting their doodles to good use.

Seen on everything from high-class publications, websites and awesome TV animations, this style is here to stay and we won’t be complaining. A mix of cheeky drawings sometimes reminiscent of the Toulouse-Lautrec golden era and applied technologies, hand-drawn ilMinimalist design lustrations are being used by many brands who want to Flat design is quickly gaining popularity across all plat- showcase their good-natured approach to consumerism forms and the best example of this is what Microsoft and advertising. Cool, twisty fonts, and odd faces and has been developing over the last couple of years with figures make this specialty a decidedly welcome addition the first Windows phones and building up to Windows to the modern design landscape. 8 available now on almost anything that has a screen.

It’s a return to an un-clunky, no-frills design, primary colors and clear contrasts. Gone are the shadows and bevels of yore. Text is large and impossible to miss as companies are no longer hiding behind frivolous aesthetics. The Facebook logo and web-interface is another (famous) example of that – a name, a color and a box. Flat design isn’t for everyone and some will say it’s overly simplistic. However, as you look around you, there’s a world that wants to stay simple and yet be heard. It can be seen in car design, furniture, and architecture. Visit almost any modern house, restaurant or furniture store and you will find sleek lines and monochromatic objects.

Big and Bold

You can’t miss that one. Big names, big colors, big surfaces. The whole world has gone Texas again. Advertisers want your attention and they want it now. Many websites are going with big headlines and sub-headlines, filling out your entire screen and you will also find many print magazines filled with one-picture-one-word pages - it’s hard to miss. In a similar mindset as Flat design, colors are mostly in the primary or secondary scheme bringing a touch of joy and happiness to the message sent. This might not be seen coming from older, more established advertisers, especially the ones that have been around for many years and are a little wary of changing up their brand guidelines.

Flat design isn’t for everyone and some will say it’s overly simplistic. However, as you look around you, there’s a world that wants to stay simple and yet be heard.

This trend is driven by smaller, emerging companies eager to get their name out and connect with younger audiences. You know, the ones who are sometimes a little too engrossed by their tablets and won’t notice a massive billboard hanging over their head with the word “BANANA” on it. I’m just making this up, but you’ll definitely see me crack up on the side of word if that happened.

From Print to Digital

Yours truly here, InPrint Magazine, is a perfect example of how it is possible to combine a magazine-looking publication into a format that loses nothing in the translation to digital. Tablets are the perfect support to view such a magazine, with its quick page-turning mechanism (yes, I’m talking to you finger-swiper) and gazillioncolor graphics. Virtually every print publication has been forced (or not) to add a digital edition to their editorial offering, and in some cases, completely forgo their print rollout in favor of digital only - Newsweek being the most recent and famous case. You will always have newspaper and magazine purists and the physical texture and smell of paper still has its charms. However, the move to digital has pushed editors to offer more content with diversity and volume being the main driving forces, which in turn has allowed them to expand their reader bases and save money on printing costs in the same process. That said, this is a transitioning trend and many print establishments are still barely just carrying over their print edition into a digital format without too much thought as to how to optimize the technology. In other words, they are basically scanning the pages of their magazine and throwing them into a glorified PDF. A great example of what a digital magazine should look like is the online retail store NET-A-PORTER.COM - and its male counterpart MRPORTER.COM. Visiting their website, you can browse through their fashion magazine, which looks a lot like an issue of Vogue or Marie-Claire without the pesky ads (alleluia!) and when you find a piece of clothing that you fancy, you can click on it right from the “magazine” and you will be able to shop for it right

there and then without leaving your seat. See this trend popping up everywhere near you very soon, especially on e-commerce based websites.

What’s Next

Designers will never stop racking their brains and pencils/mice to find ways to offer a better, more efficient user experience but these trends are a good place to start when discussing your next project with your clients. But keep this in mind: Bigger, Bolder, and Cleaner is what advertisers and customers alike are looking for today. I can’t wait to see how it unfolds in the next few years as technology keeps improving and top designers keep turning everything they touch into gold. The Mayans got it right: 2013 is the first year into the age of Enlightenment.

I think that an artist has no precise definition, but can be described in many ways. But especially in graphic arts. DAVID ARREDONDO- ILLUSTRATOR | MEXICO

“I am a 3D & Visual Development Artist who’s passion is painting, which main inspiration comes from everyday experiences of my life. I focused my work mainly in older people, which I find a truly admiration about his past that reflect their tired faces. Likewise, I find a tremendous beauty in the female form, the one that is natural, pure, and uncensored, the one that is not artificial.” principal importance in my culture. I did it in honor of all the work she did in letters and drama. It was then that I realized how much I liked the picture capture by my admiration for the people and the way I think about them. Just as things of everyday life. I think that an artist has no precise definition, but can be described in many ways. But especially in graphic arts, I think a true artist is the one who don't make beautiful things, but the one who is honest. Who you can identify with their work, the way he or she When did you know you sees life, who shares their point where an artist? What do you think of view, that makes you a lump in an artist is now that you have been the throat, maybe smile or drop a one for many years? tear, and that is an artist for me.

I like to portray mainly old people, because they arouse in me a great interest of mystery about their lives. Through his eyes, hands, wrinkles I can imagine countless stories they could tell about their lives. Situations that have suffered or enjoyed. No matter how their lives have been, every expression communicates something different and I intend to immortalize just that, causing the viewer a catharsis.

Name Of The Dish

Spicy Chicken in Chili Sause

Origin Of The Dish China

Ingredients:

Egg Fried Rice: 1 Bag 500g Basmati Rice 1 Bunch of Spring Onions 3 Eggs Soy Sause Olive Oil Salt and Pepper Chicken dish: 3 Chicken fillets (4 people) 1 Large tin of Water Chestnuts

History Of The Dish

1 Bunch of Spring Onions 1 Ginger Root 3 Clovers of Garlic 1 Large bottle of Heinz Tomato Ketchup Demerara Sugar Hot Chili Sauce Rice Wine Vinegar Soy Sauce 1 Bag of Flour 6 eggs Milk

This is a Chinese recipe based on their love to combine different aromas and tastes in a single recipe. Although the rice and chicken are separate dishes they are a good combination, and meat dishes are rarely eaten alone. In a sense the dish takes two days to prepare. However, the main part is the preparation time in the chicken dish. The cooking time, as with most Chinese recipes, are short, but preparation is key to making it work well.

THE ARTIST BEHI “

ART IS NOT SIMPLY A PART OF LIFE, IT IS LIFE!

ROB SNOW - ILLUSTRATOR | GREECE

INGREDIENTS 1 creative person, slightly matured 2 tablespoons aptitude 1 piece of aesthetic flavoring 6lbs hard work and sweat 4 ideas more than most salt of the earth to taste

I made the decision at thirteen to be creative. My grandmother, who died recently, supported me, as the path was a little rocky to start with. But since those days I have never really thought of anything else. I kind of call it the “VanGogh syndrome”. Eat, sleep, live art and willing to persist in that love of creativity to the bitter end. I have however, commercialised myself to make a living and also done many a part-time job to get by, but have never moved directly away from my love of art and creating.quirky and visually striking.

Take a creative person and stir in the aptitude thoroughly, from the start. In time, mix in the aesthetic flavoring with the most appropriate tool at hand, and then fold into the mix as much of the hard work and sweat that the mix can take. Sprinkle in the ideas. The more the better, and finally as all is cooking, a pinch of salt of the earth to give it the necessary character. Leave to cook over time and serve when required. Tasty treat in a tasteless world. Rob is a creative designer working in the fields of graphic design, illustration, web design and teaching. He works and lives in Greece, but was born in England and studied Media and Design at Degree and Masters levels. Rob loves to draw with pencil and converting the resulting images in the computer. He has been a freelance designer for 25 years and worked for small and large organizations alike. He also combines his practice of art as a University lecturer, where he teaches Creative/Lateral Thinking.

10 QUESTIONS What is your philosophy when it comes to arts? First of all: Wanna show something new

Second: Tell a story behind - mix things in a way that the viewers brain told it's own story.Make myself wondering, smiling , laughing, or express my meaning in a directed way.Shock - shock myself and others. When you are not creating you are? Dead - working or somehow frustrated. Who and what inspires you? | February 2013

First: The classics (with one of the greatest genius of mankind at all: Leonardo da Vinci), the classic moderns, named the really great artists Pablo Picasso and also Salvatore Dali, but also Antonio Gaudi and all the one that interpret his work since than ( like Friedensreich Hundertwasser,..) and Vincent van Gogh, Hieronymus Bosch, Francisco de Goya, Sandro Botticelli, Eugène Delacroix, Henri Matisse specially his late work, all the Blauen Reiter like Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, Max Pechstein, Max Beckmann and more, Das Bauhaus and his influence, Gustav Klimt, Giorgio Morandi, Manolo Valdes, Franco Costa, David Tremlett, Lucien

Second: Life - to see things in a different way; the news of the day, world; generally media (this includes art in every way!) Third: The contrast TV, Ipad, or none? none; using 2 computers and a

stereo-system, that´s enough and I can watch some TV in the net. I like the information from the radio. TV is almost flat and dumb, radio is going very much deeper and behind the superficial headline news.

I work in the headquarter! (OK and now the news: even if it seems in such a way, I'm not the assistant of the Boss)

What is the design artistic world lacking these days? More art that build another picture in your head, that bundles content to another, fresh, revolutionary, new thing - that may change anything??? (I´m also a dreamer)

If you had the power to change anything for one day what would it be? Hm, so lets come to something completely different. We all should be another person for one day, woman a man and so - that would widen up our specific personal horizon extreme wide! May be it helps to stop war, intolerance and too much egoism.

Tell us something curious about you nobody would guess. The world is a lunatic asylum and

What is your idea of a perfect day? Love, live, enjoy art, be happy and creative and than, sud-

denly for a moment I know what os all about... What plays on your itunes? Monster Magnet, Rachmaninov, Beastie Boys, Robert Gernhardt (Robert Gernhardt, wonderful light, fresh, subtle, surreal and crazy story telling!!!) Tell us one thing in your life you can't live without. Hope
