Check out this interesting article on how print has started to include new shapes and become bolder. If you have the eye, and a willingness to learn how to work across multiple platforms, you can create beautiful things. They may have different names, but the concepts are all the same. It’s just the paper, or screen, that’s different.
Print design – from newspapers to magazines to ads to books – and web design are often linked because of their differences. The two often come up in conversation at the same time as opposites.
But there is more to the story.
Print and web design are more alike than ever before. The lines are fading and the concepts that dictate good design are becoming more universal every day. Designs in the two mediums also look more similar than ever before and more designers are working in both digital and print.
And it is not just because web designers are learning more about design theory from the world of print. More and more print projects (and designers) are learning from the web. Some of this is because many designers work in environments where both skill sets are necessary but moreover more print designers are looking for inspiration and learn from their digital-publication peers.
