Vi auguro buona Pasqua, amici, a me questo periodo piace, perché è un momento di rinascita, di nuovi inizi, di cambiamenti luminosi.
Vi auguro di stare con le persone che amate, di mangiare cose buone e di sorridere parecchio. Il meteo non sarà il massimo, ma io vi auguro giorni di sole e di calore umano.
Have a Happy Easter, friends. I like this time of the year a lot, because it’s a time of awakenings, of new life, of new luminous beginnings.
I hope you’ll spend these days with the ones you love, that you eat lots of good stuff and that you never cease smiling.

The designer’s guide to grid theory
Whether you work in web or print, you need to understand grid theory - even if you eschew grids. Here’s what you need to know.
WHY DEDICATION TO SELF-IMPROVEMENT PAYS OFF
“Creativity is just connecting things. When you ask creative people how they did something, they feel a little guilty because they didn’t really do it, they just saw something. It seemed obvious to them after a while.”
"Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart.”
”If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it. And like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on.”
”You can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something – your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life.”
Universal Principles of Design
100 Ways to Enhance Usability, Influence Perception, Increase Appeal, Make Better Design Decisions, and Teach Through Design.
Whether a marketing campaign or a museum exhibit, a video game or a complex control system, the design we see is the culmination of many concepts and practices brought together from a variety of disciplines. Because no one can be an expert on everything, designers have always had to scramble to find the information and know-how required to make a design work—until now.
Universal Principles of Design, Revised and Updated is a comprehensive, cross-disciplinary encyclopedia of design. Richly illustrated and easy to navigate, it pairs clear explanations of every design concept with visual examples of the concepts applied in practice. From the “80/20” rule to chunking, from baby-face bias to Occam’s razor, and from self-similarity to storytelling, every major design concept is defined and illustrated for readers to expand their knowledge.
This landmark reference will become the standard for designers, engineers, architects, and students who seek to broaden and improve their design expertise.
