Comic Sans: From Ugly Duckling To Beautiful Swan

Comic Sans - the font that haunted us like a plague since its introduction in the 90's. It’s a sans-serif casual script typeface imitating comic books which got the cool kids thinking – hey, why not? Let’s pretend the world is one big speech bubble. Currently much criticized to the point of a raging online war between lovers and trolls alike, comic sans gets reinvented. Imagine that. Andrew Gunadie aka Gunnarolla A really short history lesson. October 1994, Microsoft designer Vincent Connare begins inventing a playful font which, unbeknownst to him, would eventually explode into a worldwide phenomenon and pop-culture staple. Not necessarily a good thing. 2002, two American graphic designers come up with a movement called “Ban Comic Sans” and...

Top Creative Design Trends of 2014… So Far

2014 is a year of extremes. The extremely old school or the extremely contemporary. To create a fusion between these two elements at each end of the spectrum is how great designers have bent and shaped the top creative design trends of 2014. A couple have been trending since the beginning of the year and up until the mid we’ve been seeing quite a sustained flow of some of these design trends. Old school. Retro. Vintage. It’s no surprise that we look to the past for inspiration. Recycling of ideas – what’s new? Made by hand. Illustrations, calligraphy, artworks not digitally synthesized have slowly gained a comeback. It only makes sense after decades of sculpting and skewing design through… how shall we say it… digital applications. You can...

What To Do To Get Design Inspiration

It’s not uncommon for designers to hit the brick wall when it comes to ideas. Or worse, inspiration. We can sit around all day with a head full of nothing or be bursting to the brim that sleep becomes an impossibility. Designing is a tricky process. Sometimes desperation seeps through and this could affect one’s work. Here are some suggestions on what to do to get design inspiration. Disconnect. Staring at a screen all day can lead to the opposite of productivity. Either it can overwhelm or worse… stump the creative process. Maybe it’s time to put away some things, head outside and clear your head. Connect. This isn’t necessarily contradictory to the first tip. People. That’s the word. It’s amazing how engaging in social behaviour can...

Why The Name ‘Ice Cream Creatives’?

Previously, we highlighted the wonderfully complicated (or not) events which led to the creation of Ice Cream Creatives. Then the questions began. “Do you sell ice cream?” Yeah! The essence of it. Ice cream is fun. There is adventure in creative design. The only limit one can have is the one he sets for himself. What makes Ice Cream Creatives fresh is the constant inspiration we take from our favourite workplace – the big wild world. Ice cream is a go-to happy treat. The lure of this goodness in a cup can be a heartsick cure-all. When you have a business that flounders and is lack-luster, Ice Cream Creatives can help find its cheerful soul and possibly help it get back on its feet. Ice cream is cool. Investing in good design can do wonders for...

Ice Cream Creatives Is Born

We are a young team set on bringing your designs to life! We’ve had the idea of putting up a graphic and web design studio for years but after the finishing touches towards finally making the dream come to life, we realized the perfect name for it still evaded us. On one supremely sunny day, it just materialized. We had a cold local snack called Halo-halo (mixed fruits topped with milk and ice cream) to keep us sane when the name struck us solid. Hey - why not serve up some ‘ice cream’? Why ‘ice cream’ though? We’re not sorbeteros (ice cream vendors) by any means… but we do aim to serve up the essence of it. Ice Cream Creatives will bring the flavour back in your business.
