In design, it is clear that sometimes we need to deliver fast and quality result. In some case, designers did search for free inspiration through various approach such as referring to free sources or others’ work, especially in web.
When it comes to vector searching, Google image search is probably the #1 choice for most, but is it always the best? A lot of great free vector resource websites give their graphics wrong titles or no descriptions at all which make it almost impossible to find them through search engines.
Vecteezy is a community of vector art that provides a place for vector artists to create and exchange a variety of free vector graphics. It’s probably one of the most popular vector websites judging by the visitor count. However, it seems that they go for quantity instead of quality.
Many people find the Pathfinder Palette or Tool in Adobe Illustrator to be a little bit confusing because, if for no other reason, there are so many little buttons and different actions that it can be hard to remember what each one does unless you are using the Pathfinder all the time. While I do use the Pathfinder very often, I find that I tend to use the same actions over and over, so I am reposting this tip (originally posted in October of 2005) as a reference / breakdown of the different Pathfinder Tools in the Pathfinder Palette and what each one does. (Probably mostly as a quick reference for myself, but I hope this post is useful for you too!)

Your brain on video games
Daphne Bavelier studies how humans learn — in particular, how the brain adapts to changes in experience, either by nature (for example, deafness) or by training (for example, playing video games). At her lab, her work shows that playing fast-paced, action-packed entertainment video games typically thought to be mind-numbing actually benefits several aspects of behavior. Exploiting this counterintuitive finding, her lab now investigates how new media, such as video games, can be leveraged to foster learning and brain plasticity.
