Moms On Line
When hunting for something specific in our Image folders, we almost always collide with something we had completely forgotten about.
Today, I discovered a whole experimental series on “Moms On Line” – a fun design I started out with for getting to a profile picture for Zo Nicholas on our Semiomantics Team, here’s an excerpt:
Moms On Line on Semiomantics
“Moms On Line” on Semiomantics was based on two original pictures received: a minuscule portrait of Zo and a lovely photo of Oli, her grandson, playing amidst colorful toys. So I just started playing as well… with my toys and tools in Photoshop…
…and things developed by themselves … here another detail that all moms (…and some dads) can relate to:
…and we ended up with a real big funfull of colors and lines that I’m sure Olie would have loved to paint over walls, curtains and anything to put finges into or hands upon:
Of course the question is: who is on whose line here?
OK, we calmed down the wild streak and framed things for what was needed for Semiomantics in terms of shape and size…
Semiomantics Web Design
And from all the fun and work… what did I eventually use for the Semiomantics Web Design?
Just a stamp!
Sometimes we have to go a long way to eventually get to a desired result. The way is neither seen nor appreciated – especially as it’s rarely seen – but we have to do what it takes to get the result we need for our specific tasks.
One thing is sure: on the way there we learn a good lot of things we will treasure for future excursions. . .
