Miguel Santana

This is a video that I was shown by my friend about a Visual effects artist from the University of Hertfordshire in his 3rd year. The video/showreel is very good for the year and lack of experience that someone of his age has. He is also very good at photography. You can look at his website here

Best packaging designs

This is work from an ex-student from the university that I am studying at called Alex Creamer.

This is New-York centric packaging for spaghetti. The brief was to package one of 5 difficult items i.e. eggs, a rose, custard powder, spaghetti or marbles. He chose spaghetti.

Even things such as washing the dishes suddenly becomes more exciting than getting down to work. You need to identify these before you can start to become more productive.

Internet Info-Graphic

This is a very good info graphic by Column Five called Soft core. It is very informative and is well made and easy to understand. It shows how many people have access to the internet and how many countries have filtered content etc.

Without the internet I think that I would be pretty screwed!
