It's amazing that film editing works, because it's so disruptive to the visual information coming into the brain, says Jeffrey Zacks, a neuroscientist at Washington University in St. Louis. On the other hand, Zacks says, our brains do quite a bit of editing of their own---and we're every bit as oblivious to that as we are to the film editor's cuts.

When one thinks of Alfred Hitchcock, what’s the first film that comes to mind? Certainly, the corpulent master crafted many iconic images, and just as many films. It’s hard to nail down maybe one specific image that defines Hitchcock, but if I had to pick one film that perfectly encapsulates his mission statement as artist, it’d be Psycho.

Colour, more than any other element of a designer's work, has the greatest influence on how viewers feel. Understanding colour, its cultural symbolism and the relationship between colours is necessary to becoming a better artist and designer. It's always better to learn the basics before striking out to develop your own colour language. We are surrounded by colour every moment of our lives and certain things become ingrained on our consciousness, so we immediately understand what the colour is supposed to make us think or feel.
