15 Must Follow Calligraphers on Dribbble

Calligraphy was a dying art just a few short years ago, but has recently been an emerging trend. For those that are unfamiliar, Calligraphy is a decorative handwriting produced with a pen or brush in one stroke (rather than many built up strokes). You may be most familiar with Calligraphy because of it’s use in wedding invitations and other formal flyers that use handwritten type, but it has recently taken off in the form of logo design.

I consider Calligraphy to be a very exclusive art, what I mean by that is, it’s not something many people do or are able to do because it takes a great deal of skill. In an effort to bring some awareness to this fine art I have gathered below 15 great Calligraphers that you should follow on Dribbble (or just follow in general). I picked these because I follow most of them and they pump out great work on a regular basis. With each Calligrapher I’ve posted a piece of their work, you can follow them by clicking on their name(s) below.

30 Inspirational Quotes You Must Read

I am sure most of you can relate to this, every now and then you get into these “funks” where you have no inspiration or motivation to do anything. If this ever happens to you then you know how depressing it can be and how it negatively impacts your work. Sometimes this kind of depression, or lack of motivation, comes after failure(s).

Natural Light Designer Workspaces

One of the main contributors in deciding if a person has good or bad productivity is the environment in which they work. A persons work environment can include one of many things like the people they work with or the location of their work (cubicle, outdoors, windowless room, corner office etc.). While in most cases some of us have no control over either of these factors, there are a lucky few of us who do.

Most freelancers create their own work environment, whether that be renting an office somewhere, going to a local coffee shop to work, or in most cases just working from home. No matter where you choose to work, one major thing you should consider when picking a place to work is the natural lighting.

Why is natural light important? Well in short, we are humans, we weren’t meant to be confined inside the walls of a cubicle and shut off from the outside world. We need natural light to live and to keep our minds from exploding.

Researchers at the Interdepartmental Neuroscience program at Northwestern University in Chicago, reported that the impact of working in a windowless environment is a universal phenomenon.

The study took 49 day shift office workers, 27 in workplaces with no natural light or windows and 22 in workplaces with windows and natural light. They used the Short Form-36 (SF-36) to measure health related quality of life, and the Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index (PSQI)to evaluate sleep quality.

The study revealed that people who worked in offices with natural light received 173 percent more natural light exposure than those without windows or natural light in their office. The study also concluded that people who work in offices with windows (ie: natural light) got 46 more minutes of sleep per night over people working in offices with no windows and had better scores on measures for sleep quality, sleep disturbances and daytime sleepiness.

People working in offices without natural light also scored lower on measures like physical problems. The study’s lead author, Ivy Cheung, said that: “A sunny day is equivalent to about 10,000 lux or higher of light. Indoor office lighting typically provides only about 300 to 500 lux. Light levels needed to maintain healthy circadian rhythm are higher than those required to see well, which are levels typically used indoors.”

Working in environments with no natural light is bad for our health. I can vouch for this first hand, I worked in an office that had no natural light, just florescent’s. I felt trapped, constantly tired no matter how much sleep I got, and depressed. As soon as I would get off work I would go home and go straight to bed; I did not feel like doing anything. It not only had an impact on me while I was at work, but it affected me during my off time as well.

After about a month of this, the company I was working for moved offices to an open floor plan co-working space with a wall of windows. After this move I began to feel more energized, I woke up and was ready for work everyday, plus I could see the outdoors! I am an outdoors person, so picking a career as a web developer wasn’t the smartest choice (but hey, I like it), but to be able to see outside and work in natural light is something that helps me get through the day.

With all the research and facts behind us now, lets move on to the fun part, the showcase of designer workspaces that utilize natural light. Included with each workspace image is a little tid bit about the workspace owner. Hopefully these workspaces will inspire you to move your desk in front of a window and begin enjoying the benefits of working under natural light.

Superhero part-time jobs by Chow Hon Lam

Chow Hon Lam, a 38 year old illustrator from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, is November’s artist of the month. Hon, still residing in Kuala Lumpur, has been designing for about 18 years. He says that he got into designing because he likes to draw, and thinks it’s the main reason he became a designer, and why he is still doing it today.

Hon is the owner of Flying Mouse 365, a t-shirt and print store in which he sells his designs. You can view more of his work there or check out the links below to see more of Hon’s designs.

Hon was kind enough to answer some questions for us in this quick interview which you can see below.

Where did you land your first design related job?

My first design job was working as a part timer in a small design house, I still remember my salary was about $1.50 per hour.

Tell us a little about Flying Mouse:

I started designing tee shirts in 2007, and I used Flying Mouse as my nick name in this industry. The name Flying Mouse was inspired by one of my favorite childhood cartoons called Mighty Mouse, he is a mouse that can fly and has super powers. Mighty Mouse brought me some good times, I hope Flying Mouse can bring the same thing to other people too.

What made you decide to start this “Part-time Job” project?

The “Part Time Job” project actually started with a batch of 6 superheroes with their Part Time Jobs, surprisingly it received very good responses from people. I decided to continue this project and create more “Part Time Jobs” for them. Those superheroes definitely can do more jobs with their abilities beside save the world.

What do you enjoy doing in your spare time?

I enjoy movies, the gym, food, and spending time with friend and family.

Who/Where do you draw your inspiration from?

Everything around can inspire me because I believe everything has a story behind it, and I’m trying to create a story for them.

What does your office look like?

Currently I work from home. It is a small room, which is good enough for me.

Chow Hon Lam Workspace

What design tools/software do you use?

My work mostly is digital art, I use a tablet, Photoshop, and Illustrator.

Chrome, Firefox, or Safari?

Currently I’m using Firefox.

What are some of your future plans/goals as a Designer?

Trying to let more people know about my brand “Flying Mouse 365”, it is a tee shirt with a story, I call it “Story Tee”.

————————————————————————-

The main reason I chose Chow Hon Lam as artist of the month was because of his unique designs. My favorite project of his is the part-time job project. The part-time job project illustrates various superheroes doing jobs other than saving the world. If superheroes were forced to get a part-time job to pay the bills, this is what that job would be.

The project was very interesting and creative and I’m sure you will all enjoy it very much.

Inspiring Wedding Invitation Designs

Before the invention of the movable type printing press in 1447, weddings in England were announced by means of a town crier (a person employed to make public announcements in a town). Luckily in today’s time we have all the tools necessary to create printed wedding invitations to send directly to those whom we wish to invite.

The wedding invitation in most cases is the first thing a person will see in regards to your wedding (with the exception of save the dates), so making one that is unique and stands out is important. You don’t want something that someone will lose or that blends in with everything else on your refrigerator.

Seeing as that we’ve never posted anything wedding related on Enfuzed, I figured it was about time to start. I’ve gathered 12 inspiring wedding invitation examples to help you in getting some ideas for invites you may be creating for you or someone else’s wedding. The names below are of the designers not necessarily who the wedding is for.
