Creativity Squared – Instablocks Rock


Instablocks are mini canvases that pack an awesome creative punch!
Measuring in at only 10 x 10cm, they are small enough to rest in your hand, but bold enough to grab your attention. There is something deeply magical and ever so attractive about these intense focal points of art. It is hard to believe that they were developed as a solution for our customers stuck with low-resolution pictures taken on old cellphones. People rave about how they are just the right size for showcasing images from apps like Instagram, Hipstamatic, FilterGrid, SuperPhoto, Snapseed, Pixlromatic and many others.


Ryan Ross of Defusion, knew the design potential of instablocks and booked a special order with us for a range of quirky staff rewards. He and his innovative team of designers and creatives like to think outside the box and instablocks scored them a home run with their client. Ryan’s familiarity with the product led him to a new eye-catching combination of graphic design, instablock canvases and our mini easel. We’re so delighted with the finished product. They are a perfect showcase of vibrant colour and articulate design.



These are such a brilliant way to reward hard working staff.  Imagine the pride with which these awards would be displayed in the office. What a great incentive to boost productivity and build morale in your team.

Get creative now and build your own innovative art with instablocks!

Tip 9 : Aligning and Spacing in Rapidstudio

We often want to create a collage of photo's as a page design. Most of the time we are not totally confident in creating this type of layout in Rapidstudio, as you have to be accurate in your aligning and spacing of pictures. In this tutorial I will be explaining how to create a collage of pictures on a page, as it covers most of the alignment and spacing topics.
I hope this tutorial will help you realise your design intent more accurately and efficiently.
You will probably start with a page layout something similar to this

We are going to start with top row of pictures. The following explanation only refers to the top row, we will be dealing with the rest of the images a bit later.
First of all we need to move the pictures next to each other horizontally to see if they will fit in the "Safe Area" of the page. In this example the pictures are too wide and overlap the safe area horizontally. Please note that you will have to leave a decent amount of space between the safe …

Creative Ideas for a Post-Holiday Photobook

Here’s how to turn your holiday photos into a creative, must-keep photobook.

Returning home after a holiday can leave you with the post-travel blues. As you wash your bikini, shake the sand out of your sneakers, and try to revive the house plants you haven’t watered for two weeks, you begin to long for the lazy days of a vacation.

But, just because you’re home, doesn’t mean the holiday fun is over. Gather your memories up and create a photobook of your trip. Putting it together is a fun way to keep the holiday feeling alive, plus you can look back on it, to get yourself ready for next December (or April. We’re coming for you, public holidays).
