Self-Promo

I like this resume by Elliot Hasse a lot. I think it is really creative and shows off his design abilities but it is also readable and has adequate information so it really helps to visually sell his skills.

The Noun Project

I found this website called The Noun Project and it is essentially a giant collection of symb0ls of just about anything and everything. Their mission states: “The Noun Project collects, organizes and adds to the highly recognizable symbols that form the world’s visual language, so we may share them in a fun and meaningful way.”  All of the symbols are free and all show interesting uses of negative space.

Here is an example of some of the thousands of symbols

This logo for 8 Fish, a sushi restaurant, is a really great use of positive/negative space. I really like how the four yellow fish create the four maroon fish and vice versa. I also like how colors were used instead of the typical black and white you see in most positive/negative designs. The designer’s name is Jerron Ames.  More of his work can be seen at
