Graphic Design – The Forgotten Web Standard Slides In 3 Minutes
This video is two months old, but nevertheless still is a fascinating watch. Mike Kus is currently the designer at Carsonified, a small and friendly creative team based in the historic town of Bath, England. More of his design work can be seen on his personal website The Things We Make. He comes from a print background as graphic designer at the Body Shop, but decided to expand his skill set a couple of years ago and shifted towards web design.
As part of his talk at FOWD London 2009, the Future Of Web Design seminar, he screened the short film below. It is a considerably sped up capture of Mike designing his slides for his presentation. The reason for including this short video was that Mike wanted to reveal the process he went through whilst designing them. What’s interesting is that it also features quite a few slides that never made it to the final selection. And indeed, apart from the occasional sketch we rarely get to see how graphic designers achieve the end result. This video is both instructing and inspiring.
