Juxtaposition is the art of placing together a number of contrasting objects or ideas, usually two.

Used effectively, it captures our imaginations immediately, making it one of the most valuable techniques any creater can employ to dramatize their message.

And it’s at its most potent when these two objects are as diametrically opposed to each other as possible.

If it’s a race to get into minds and stay there, then it’s the artists who make their points faster, smarter, and more thought-provoking that will be the ones who succeed.

For most of us, anger amounts to stress, and the worst type of stress at that.

But for artists, anger can be a positive force.

If focused and channeled into a piece of work, it is capable of producing something of great profundity.

Break things.

All our life we’re told to make things. Breaking things is a process from which you can learn so much more if you decide to learn from somebody else whose done something great and break it and take it apart.

You cannot achieve great design without aiming for major visual impact. Design is like art. People talk about strong design like they talk about great art.
