  • Charley Harper (1922-2007)

    Charley Harper (August 4, 1922-June 10, 2007) was a Cincinnati-based American Modernist artist. He was best known for his highly stylized wildlife prints, posters and book illustrations. Born in Frenchtown, West Virginia in 1922, Harper’s upbringing on his family farm influenced his work to his last days.

    During his career, Charley Harper illustrated numerous books, notably The Golden Book of Biology, magazines such as Ford Times, as well as many prints, posters, and other works. As his subjects are namely natural, with birds prominently features, Charley often created works for many nature-based organizations, among them the National Park Service; Cincinnati Zoo; Cincinnati Nature Center; Hamilton County (Ohio) Park District; and Hawk Mountain Sanctuary in Pennsylvania. He also designed interpretive displays for Everglades National Park.

    His artworks are bold, colorful, and often whimsical. Charley called his style “minimal realism”. When asked to describe his style he said:
    “When I look at a wildlife or nature subject, I don’t see the feathers in the wings, I just count the wings. I see exciting shapes, color combinations, patterns, textures, fascinating behavior and endless possibilities for making interesting pictures. I regard the picture as an ecosystem in which all the elements are interrelated, interdependent, perfectly balanced, without trimming or unutilized parts; and herein lies the lure of the painting; in a world of chaos, the picture is one small rectangle in which the artist can create an ordered universe.”

    The designer Todd Oldham wrote of Harper, “Charley’s inspired yet accurate color sense is undeniable, and when combined with the precision he exacts on rendering only the most important details, one is always left with a sense of awe.”

  • World's first ever Photograph

    View from the Window at Le Gras is the oldest camera photograph. It was created by Nicéphore Niépce in 1826 or 1827 in France and shows parts of a building.

    Several days of exposure in the camera were required and the earliest results were very crude. Niépce's associate Louis Daguerre went on to develop the daguerreotype process, the first publicly announced photographic process, which required only minutes of exposure in the camera and produced clear, finely detailed results. It was commercially introduced in 1839, a date generally accepted as the birth year of practical photography.

  • The Psychology of Color

    Colors influence the way customers view a brand. By eliciting emotional responses, colors have the power to persuade and firmly instill favorable thoughts in the target group.

    For this reason, colors play a fairly substantial role in purchases and branding. Researchers found that up to 90% of snap judgments made about products can be based on color alone (depending on the product). This means that colors influence how consumers view the "personality" of the brand in question. When it comes to picking the "right" color, research has found that predicting consumer reaction to different colors will help brands to choose how they wish to be perceived by their consumers.

  • Comic Con 2016

    A few years back, to avoid the costly expense of traveling abroad to a comic convention, a group of relatively young people in Delhi decided to create one on their own in their home city.

The mission has now evolved to create unique pop culture events and engage with fans all across the country. We are here to create world class events that expand the much restricted pop culture in the country, help grow the industries involved and deliver much needed fun experiences to dedicated fans across India. Get ready for some jam-packed fun from 9-11 December, 2016.

  • Interesting Fun Fact

    The Coca-Cola logo design was not made from a typeface but was originally prepared using a handwriting style, now known as Spencerian Script.

    Technically, the Coca-Cola logo as it exists today can not be replicated with the tools of 1887 which, by the way, is the year the script logo was introduced. Not 1885. Coca-Cola was first served in 1886 and even then, the first official logo of Coca-Cola was not the script logo. It first appeared in the Atlanta Journal Constitution in 1886 as both a slab serif and chunky sans serif — it wasn't until mid-1887 that Frank Robinson, Coca-Cola's bookkeeper, drew the first traces of the Spencerian script logo that we all know.
