Well, almost no rules." They identified their personal axioms, drew them on paper, cut out the pieces and arranged them on a big piece of cardboard. When they completed the project, they realized that the rules they chose were in fact principles that guide them daily during creative endeavors. Designing this poster was a way to abide by the very first rule: have fun in what you do.</p> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="620" height="872" title="Design, H-57, poster" alt="" src="http://design.org/sites/default/files/blog/2012/03/14/h-57_commandment_00.jpg?1331759278" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-images"> <div class="field-label">Images:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_images" width="620" height="930" title="Design, H-57, poster" alt="" src="http://design.org/sites/default/files/blog/2012/03/14/h-57_commandment_01.jpg?1331759381" /> </div> <div class="field-item even"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_images" width="620" height="930" title="Design, H-57, poster" alt="" src="http://design.org/sites/default/files/blog/2012/03/14/h-57_commandment_03.jpg?1331759381" /> </div> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_images" width="620" height="930" title="Design, H-57, poster" alt="" src="http://design.org/sites/default/files/blog/2012/03/14/h-57_commandment_02.jpg?1331759381" /> </div> <div class="field-item even"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_images" width="620" height="930" title="Design, H-57, poster" alt="" src="http://design.org/sites/default/files/blog/2012/03/14/h-57_commandment_04.jpg?1331759381" /> </div> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_images" width="620" height="930" title="Design, H-57, poster" alt="" src="http://design.org/sites/default/files/blog/2012/03/14/h-57_commandment_05.jpg?1331759396" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-featured"> <div class="field-label">Featured:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Not Featured </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="http://design.org/blog/h-57-design-commandments-poster" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://design.org/blog/h-57-design-commandments-poster#comments design italy paper poster productivity typography Wed, 14 Mar 2012 23:11:58 +0000 wardandrews 4157 at http://design.org Thinking Outside the Tube: Toilet Paper Rolls as Art http://design.org/blog/thinking-outside-tube-toilet-paper-rolls-art <p>I love seeing designers and artists reach past established mediums and think outside of the box or—in this case—the tube. These creators each embraced a canvas and material destined for the trash to create some beautiful, intriguing and downright fun pieces. Curious to learn more about why embracing creativity like this is important? You'll find me talking about it tomorrow at #wcphx <a href="http://2012.phoenix.wordcamp.org/speakers/" target="Wordcamp Phoenix">Wordcamp Phoenix</a> at 2:15 p.m. See what artistic journey these
