Menswear Spring 2015: Simple Print Idea

Menswear Spring 2015: Simple Print Idea

How wonderfully simple can a print design be? Very simple! At the menswear fashion shows for Spring 2015 we noticed this trend for prints: The Square.

How to do this
Step one; Take a garment, preferably a T-Shirt, but any top will do.
Step two; Make yourself a square.
Step three: Decide if you like text or an image, if you can’t decide use both.
Step four: Place text and/or image in square.

Counting to 10 with one hand

Counting to 10 with one hand, that’s how they do it in China. Much more easy than counting with two of them. Rebecca shows us how to use our hands for this simple, nonverbal communication.

More info on Chinese counting with the hand: Counting with fingers is often different from expressing a specific number with a finger gesture. When counting, the palm can be either facing its owner or the audience, depending on the purpose. Before counting, all fingers are closed; counting starts by extending the thumb as the first, then the first finger (the index finger) as the second, till all fingers are extended as the fifth; then counting can be continued by folding fingers with the same sequence, from thumb through the little finger, for counting from the sixth through the tenth. Repeating the same method for counting larger numbers. One can also starts counting with all fingers extended. Some believe that for formal scenario such as giving speech or presentation, counting with the palm facing the audience and starting with all fingers extended is more polite, since the gesture of folding of fingers representing bowing.
