What is a term for an infinitely repeating image such as the label on land o lakes butter?

The term used to describe an infinitely-repeating images such as the Land O'Lakes butter packaging design featuring an Indian maiden is an 'infinite-loop motif' also known as the 'Droste effect'.

The first term is self-explanatory; the second is named for the logo used by the Dutch brand of cocoa powder, Droste, which features an image similar in concept to the Land O'Lakes butter logo.

The infinite-loop motif has long fascinated artists and viewers alike. We know the motif doesn't really keep repeating forever, but the idea that it appears to do so fires our imagination.

A link below gives more information on the Droste effect.

Professor Mandelbrot, the mathematician who died in October 2010, coined the term 'fractal', describing the boundary of the Mandelbrot set named for him: this describes an 'interated function', a mathematical function, an iteration, repeating itself indefinitely. There is an inviting similarity between fractals and the infinite-loop motif, even if viewed solely as an art form.

What is the difference between decorative art graphic art and fine art?

"Graphic art" is to the art of printmaking and drawing. In contemporary usage it refers to the applied trade-skills of a pressman, pre-press technician, or typesetter. The term can include the trades of lithography, serigraphy and bindery, among others. Graphic arts as a trade can be traced back to the first instances of the stamped image or word. Traditionally, graphic art is the production of a design on a medium like Rubber, Plexiglas, or other materials in order to transfer the images and/or make an impression/print to the materials of choice such as paper, cloth, wood, metals, and plastics etc. More recently graphic art refers to the generation of two-dimensional, computer-generated images. These images most often contain text along with other drawings. Graphic art is most often used in marketing.

"Fine art" (or the fine arts) describes an art form developed primarily for aesthetics and/or concept rather than practical application. Art is often a synonym for fine art, as employed in the term "art gallery".[1]

Historically, the fine arts were limited to painting, sculpture, architecture and engraving.[2] Today, the fine arts commonly include visual and performing art forms, such as painting, sculpture, installation, Calligraphy, music, dance, theatre, architecture, photography and printmaking. However, in some institutes of learning or in museums fine art, and frequently the term fine arts (pl.) as well, are associated exclusively with the visual art forms.

How do I double space on Mac QuarkXPress?

The double space between sentences is a throwback to the era of typewriters. With sophisticated computer applications like Quark XPress this practice is no longer necessary and can cause text to look unprofessional. The simple answer is to type 2 spaces. This is referred to as word spacing. To create double spacing between lines: select the text to double space, hold down Command (Apple), Option(alt), Shift on the keyboard. Then click the single quote key (') to increase space or the semi-colon key (;) to reduce space between lines. This is referred to as leading or the space between each baseline of text. Simply select all text and input the leading number as double the point size of the text. For example, 12 point text with 24 point leading looks like a double return, or double space.

The above keyboard commands allow one to increase the space between lines quickly and 'globally'. For an editor / publisher / reader the text does not have to be exactly double spaced to the last degree to look presentable. When speaking of formatting text one needs to be specific, there are 3 different aspects used to space text. Word spacing, leading and kerning (the space between letters).

What type of laptop would be best for graphics internet web design basic office and making cds?

Essentially what it boils down to is a system that will help you with the type of overall work you're doing and the programs required to achieve your goals for that project.

Mac or PC really doesn't matter anymore, though there are those on both sides who will swear by both. The top design programs are built for use with both Mac and PC, so in the end, what matters is your personal preference, software technical requirements (RAM, Video RAM, CPU, etc.), and of course, what you can afford.

In general, the best type of notebooks for top design programs are going to be those for gaming or high performance. This is because they are specifically built for high-end multimedia use and presentation, and if you compare the technical requirements for such programs, they line up very well with high performance systems, with a little extra for software updates as time passes.

Bottom line - for top performance, check the system requirements of the media design programs you wish to run, be it for graphics, sound, video, animation, etc., double the RAM and VRAM, and you'll be set with a system that should carry you through at least 3 software updates. Always get a system with 2 internal drives, never just one; a single drive severely limits performance when dealing with design programs (e.g., main drive being used as a scratch disk for large files).

Did Seymour Robins design the US Steel logo?

I grew up being told that my granddad, William H Lyon designed the logo while he was an employee of US Steel. I'm currently trying to find some proof of that, with no luck so far.

Seymour Robins was my father. had he designed the US Steel logo, i would have known about it. Pop was all over the place, and did more than his share of corporate identity work for Fortune 500 companies, but the US Steel logo was definitely not his work.

if your granddad did design that logo, my hat's off to him. it's a wonderful piece of work.

What is the average annual salary for a web designer?

If you are on a salary, or with a company, you stand to earn 18,000 GBP+, anywhere up to around 75,000 GBP for an experienced, quality web designer.

A freelance or owner of a company can earn a lot more, the average website costing between 400 GBP to in excess of 10,000 GBP, depending on the quality and level of skill involved, so an experienced freelance with template code, fast working skill and a wide knowledge.

A freelance could also sell his templates over and over again to individuals who want to make their own, as well as advertising profits from websites he has made.

As a small business owner myself, i make around 600 GBP average per site, each site taking me 2 working days (16 hours) to create, adjust and go live. Aftercare sometimes can take an extra 2-8 hours for adjustments, but as long as a content management system is built in- the client no longer requires your time, leaving you free to carry on working on other sites.

So, if i were to have clients every day of the week, i would earn between 4,000 and 8,000 a month, maybe more if i had a large contract worth more money. Of course this is not the case, as it is a competitive world, and i don't have clients every day, but if it wasn't?

I would make between 50,000 GBP and 100,000 GBP working 5 days a week. Hard work though, very hard work.

  • It depends on what they design, how good of a designer they are, and how lucky they are. If they are really good, and get lucky enough to land a major corporate website deal, they could make quite a bit.
  • In the UK a typical starting salary is probably between $14,000 and $18,000 ($26,000 to $33,000 at the present exchange rate) but salaries can well be in the region of $35,000 plus ($65,000) for an experienced and successful web designer and those going freelance can earn a lot more if the conditions are right.

It depends on your definition of 'web designer.'

  • Web programmer: Uses full programming languages like C#, Java, ZEND (PHP) or VB to program an application that is delivered in a browser. Usually uses an IDE (integrated development environment) to create the web application.
  • Web developer: Uses scripting languages like PHP, ASP or JSP to develop pages that usually have some sort of dynamic content. This may include database connections through MySQL or SQL PostGreSQL. Usually familiar with JavaScript at a programmatic level for DHTML.
  • Web designer: May use scripting languages, but is more often focused on the layout of the pages than the functionality. Usually has some graphic background and is able to use programs like gimp or Photoshop. Knows HTML, CSS and some java script.
  • A web designer will make around $22 to $30k. A web developer entry level is $$28 to 33k, experienced up to $50k. A web programmer is $50 to $75k. Now these are all estimates and it is possible to be a higher level of each. You can be a really solid web designer (more expectations = CSS, XHTML, JavaScript and other client side technologies) and make more money.
  • According to national salary data, the average salary of a web designer is $33,859 to $50,213.
