Aaron James Draplin

Aaron James Draplin has been called a badass in the same sentence as a big softie. He's a big, loud and shamelessly big-hearted graphic designer who is probably the most sincere designer on this planet. He's done sleeves for Richmond Fountain, is one of the founders of Field Notes brand and has done more logotype's than David Hasselhof has done cheesy smiles.

Kubrick's One-Point Perspective

Among Kubrick's notable innovations in cinematography are his use of special effects, as in 2001, where he used both slit-scan photography, front-screen projection, and his notorius use of "one-point perspective," which leads the viewer's eye towards a central vanishing point. The technique relies on creating a complex visual symmetry using parallel lines in a scene which all converge on that single point, leading away from the viewer.
