Welcome to Intelligent Design, the PopSci art department blog. Our first story brings you into the world of covers. The Future of Sports issue was quite unusual for us, bringing together both an unfamiliar image and an unfamiliar topic, and presented some unique challenges. The process, however, is pretty typical. in this film, we'll take you from concept to complete image and hopefully reveal just how much work goes into producing our unique 3-D CG images.
Purists note: I've glossed over the typography part: we'll cover that in a future installment.
Come back each Wednesday for upcoming stories which will include product reviews that you won't find in PopSci, movies, TV, books and the arts in general and of course more insider secrets.
We hope you like what we're doing and we'd love to hear from you, about these stories and the magazine's design in general.
Intelligent Design. The science behind the art. The art behind the science.
In this installment, watch creative director Sam Syed's video explanation of all the details that go into making a good first impression.
Awesome, I've always been awed by the art in Popular Science. As an amateur Graphic Artist, I've always wished to have the 3D applications that help produce images like that.
Kudos, Sam. This is really fun stuff!
Brilliant. It is always helpful to see how genius becomes tangible. Keep up the great work.
I'm an artist.. This was a perfect art lesson.. in nut shell.. inspirational...Thanks ..France
I particularly like the part about digging a hole and hiding in it. You are very creative and inspiring. Keep up the good work.
