Deep in a tropical jungle school

Is a Professor who acts like a fool

“Be-you-ti-ful!” he would call

To any new student who would come to sit in his hall

He teaches a class on compassion and kindness

“Beyoutiful are each of you and that is the only lesson for true happiness”

His students learn about self acceptance and authentic living

Gifts from the heart that’ll serve them well

Ones that they’ll also carry on giving

To others and for anyone else they could tell

Stories of their Professor Toucan with Frangipani flowers on his head

A legacy that we all should try to leave in our stead

Gifts for Data Scientists Best Seller: Word Cloud Mug

Word clouds or Tag clouds are images of related phrases or keywords. They are a visual representation of how often (i.e., the frequency) certain words are used or how relevant they are to a certain topic.

Creating a word cloud related to Data Science was one of my first designs on TeePublic in my re-imagined aRtVerse print-on-demand store. Additionally, I didn’t want to create the word cloud manually; far too much work and quite frankly I’d be letting down the Data Science divinities should I not try to automate this process somehow.

Data Science Word Cloud | Viridis Palette
Watermarked TeePublic Design

Thus, I set out to auto-generate a word cloud of Data Science related words, such as ‘machine learning’, ‘artificial intelligence’, ‘data’, ‘programming’, ‘numbers’ … you get my point.

My programming language of choice was R. I set out to gather the relevant words and assign a number to each, which determines the size of the text in the cloud, as well as repeating specific words based on their importance to Data Science. I also took a couple of rounds getting the shape of the word cloud into more of a square rather than a rectangle for better product placement.

Debugging is like being the detective in a crime movie where you’re also the murderer.

Filipe Fortes

Get this quote from my Pinterest Board!

After creating the word cloud, it look a tad boring in black and white. So I wondered how to colour the Data Science word cloud and still stay true to it being wholly programmed in R. Thus, I decided to use ggplot2 and the well known colour palettes of Viridis (perpetual colours of blue, green and yellow), Plasma (blue, red and yellow) as well as Inferno (black, red and yellow).

This generated a html widget of the word cloud from which I could extract the word cloud and clean it up in GIMP. I love GIMP – if only I could find a way to code graphic design in GIMP rather than using the mouse – it’ll save me a lot of time and mouse-induced-hand-fatigue! LOL!

I intended the word cloud design for a T-shirt, but after uploading and product optimisation; the Mug came out looking the best – which is not a problem as I am sure many Data Scientist are addicted to caffeine anyways…

My very first Data Science design has also turned out to be one of my best sellers on TeePublic! It makes a thoughtful gift for a Data Scientist (either as a present to friend or to yourself!) since the design has literally been created with the tools of the trade! And who doesn’t appreciate that level of authenticity in a gift related to their passion? Additionally, it is both practical and functional – I am sure most data scientist are too! LOL!

Duotone Effect & Free Mood Boards: Iceland Horses

For today’s graphic design experimentation we are following on the Original Icelandic Horses Mood Board created in the previous post and we going to look at Duotone Effects. I will provide a Mood Board for the duotone image at the end of the post. All images in this post are free to use for your design projects!

Duotone Effect Process

Duotone effects create a two-tone colour gradient on top of the original image for a more modern graphic design look.

I do not have Adobe Illustrator or Photoshop, instead I have opted to learn in GIMP for the time being and I am a bit familiar with the program already. As such I first had to find a step-by-step instruction for creating Duotone effects in GIMP. I used “A DuoTone process using GIMP by Daniel Berrangé” for the beginning of the creation processes and then I went off on my own tangent… 😉

Below is a quick summary of the process. P.S. there is an easier way to do this in GIMP, but I feel that this process gives a more “refined” look…

Step 1: Gradient Map & Grayscale

The first step in the processes is to create a grayscale map of the colours to guide GIMP in placing colours along the gradient from light to dark.

Iceland Horses Step 1 Gradient Map Grayscale
Grayscale Gradient Map

Step 2: Colour Layers and Fill

The second step is to create the different colour layers and to fill each. The shadow layer is a darker colour and the highlights a lighter one – note that complementary colours work best here (blue & yellow, purple & orange or green & red).

Iceland Horses Step 2 Fill Colors Purple Orange
Fill Colours – Purple and Orange

Step 3: Colour Blending

The third step is to blend the colours for a more seamless and gradient effect. However, the colours here are a bit warm here and it seems as though these are Desert Horses rather than Icelandic ones. I decided to opt for cooler colours; a darker purple and light blue perhaps?

Iceland Horses Step 3 Fill Colors Layer Mode Warm Orange Purple
Colour Blending – Purple and Orange

Much better, eh?

Iceland Horses Step 4 Fill Colors Layer Mode Cool Purple Blue
Colour Blending – Purple and Blue

Step 4: Blending Modes

From here on I was just playing around with the way GIMP renders the blending between the layers, either ‘all-over/even’ such as the previous picture, or with a sharp change in the layers with distinct lines, circles or spirals!

Iceland Horses Step 5a Fill Colors Layer Mode Cool Linear Blend Purple Blue
Blending Mode Linear (Line)
Step 5b Fill Colors Layer Mode Cool Radial Blend Purple Blue
Blending Mode Radial (Circle)
Step 5c Fill Colors Layer Mode Cool Clockwise Spiral Blend Purple Blue
Blending Mode Spiral

I like the spiral blend as it adds to the wind blowing effect in the photo. This concludes our experimentation for now and I leave you with the colour palette of the Duotone Icelandic Horses!

Final Touches: Typography

I added a bit of typography to the final image using Canva just to tie up everything nicely! Viola! It’ll make a pretty desktop background, don’t you think?
