For most graphic designers, animation is a big step that demands a lot of effort and an additional set of expert skills; but not anymore. Now we have CrazyTalk Animator which is built from the ground up as a revolutionary 2D animation tool designed specifically to avoid neck-breaking, frame-by-frame animation. Anyone can now easily drag & drop their photographs, images or vector files, and animate them with real-time mouse puppeteering.
Typography is a fine art form. To the untrained eye, it seems like there are about 40 unique fonts with identical copies abound that make up the hundreds of fonts in existence. However, typographers are a keen type and there are small differentiating features that when combined, result in a finely-crafted and unique font. As commoners, we may not be able to pinpoint the specific differences between two fonts, but we can often sense that there’s a difference, even if it’s minute. We may even be drawn to one over another, and are not quite sure why.

Many web developers pay a lot of attention to their website’s background. There is nothing strange in it because the background often determines the impression that a website makes on visitors. It is rather clear that, for example, cute colorful toothy monsters will suit children websites greatly, but they will look freaky on business-related web pages. However the field of business activity of websites’ owners is not the only determinative element in choosing the design (and the background as one of the most important parts of it).
We live in a world where customization is key and vital to the products that we use. We want things to be our own, and we want to get out of these things exactly what we are looking for.

Color deeply influences the overall look and feel of a website and can form the first impression about a company for visitors. Color is one of the top three most important factors in a purchasing decision, according to an article by the Touro College Journal.
Cooper Marketing Group conducts an annual nationwide “color preference study”designed to find out what colors are currently in with various demographic groups. The results are sold to manufacturers and play a large part of the color trends in clothing, housewares, and automobiles each year. What does this mean for website design? Quite simply, sites with the wrong color scheme don’t appeal to their target audience and fail to convert.
Innovation is an oft-repeated term, be it Graphic designing or Web Designing. This is the reason many people tend to bemuse themselves with these two concepts and end up evolving a complex website that is hard to sell.

To explain, both graphic designer and web designer hold specialization in their own explicit fields; however, disasters occur when one tries to do what the other specializes in.
