5.0 out of 5 stars Mickey's Sinister Sibling, 7 Sept. 2014
This review is from: Ricky Rouse Has a Gun (Paperback)
Snap comic frames that make you laugh, great attention to detail and a good in-depth story that's a good change from the standard graphic novel affair.

Love it, but the colour just wears off so fast and it's not a proper gold colour underneath.

I guess that's the nature of making a gold coloured lego block keyring, I still have it on my keys and love it despite the fact it doesn't really look gold anymore.

2.0 out of 5 stars It's great while it lasts, 31 Aug. 2013
I have had 2 of this particular Brita jug in the same colour, one for home and one at the office.

They're great when you first get them, but they have major design flaws that become apparent over time mainly to do with the lid.

The lid in the case of both has been that the flap at the front becomes loose and then the flap where you run water into breaks off and will never be secure again leaving a gaping hole in the top of the jug meaning you have to wait for all the water to go through before using it again.

I recommend getting the smaller filter jugs and replacing them once every few years due to wear and tear, a shame considering how this could be avoided with better design.

Brita -- any chance of a model made from more hard wearing materials such as glass and metal?

4.0 out of 5 stars Pictures with meaning, 30 Nov. 2006
This review is from: Lingua Grafica (Hardcover)
This book is full of great ways to portray certain actions with just a single icon. The styles are not just pulled from other places, they're really unique, the authors explain the process of icon design from concept to finished product. Personally my favourite section is where they discuss the actual practices they follow in house to produce great quality vector artwork, but again it's mostly done in icon form. In this book they discuss the use of Macormedia Freehand but the same techniques can easily be applied in Adobe Illustrator or other vector based software.

The only downside to this book is that it's not bigger! There are plenty of icons to look at, some really nice styles to get inspiration from but there could have easily been more sections on the concept stages of icon design. Something of a specialist book, it will certainly get some cogs moving in any budding graphic artists mind, specifically those focused on creating simplistic yet powerful artwork.
