Creating Sources of Inspiration - Scott Robertson @ School of Industrial Design (Academy of Art University)


Recommended Posts

Sszecret

I went to art school (1st through 12th grade) and although I'm studying something completely different at college, drawing (and stuff related to art) has remained one of my hobbies. About a year ago, when I was browsing the search results on YT, I found this talk from Scott Robertson on creating sources of inspiration, in which he details his design process and gives out some pretty interesting tips. I thought you folks might enjoy this. :)

 

 

 

If you liked it, you should check out his YT channel as well at https://www.youtube.com/user/scottrobertsondesign/featured , where he often has tutorials, showcases his sketchbooks, and more. :)

      Samsung Galaxy S20 FE 5G unboxing and first impressions
      by João Carrasqueira

      Top-tier smartphones, especially from brands like Samsung and Apple, are getting incredibly expensive. Because that kind of experience isn't feasibly affordable for everyone, Samsung introduced the Galaxy S20 FE 5G, a cheaper variant of its flagship phone from earlier in the year. This phone packs quite a punch, but it brings down the price to $699, while the standard Galaxy S20 original launched at $999.

      The Galaxy S20 FE 5G comes with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 chipset, even in Europe, though there is an Exynos 990-powered variant of the phone (which isn't available in the U.S.). It also has 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage, depending on the configuration you choose. The display has been toned down to Full HD+ resolution, but it still supports a 120Hz refresh rate.

      The camera setup still includes three rear cameras and one selfie camera on the back, but some of the specs have been downgraded to bring the price down, like a lower resolution for the telephoto camera or smaller pixels for the ultra-wide lens.

      Overall, though, the Galaxy S20 aims to be Samsung's value king, and it might just be exactly that. We'll be working on a full review in the next couple of weeks, but you can watch our initial hands-on below.
