50th Anniversary GDUSA Survey Reveals Stock Visuals are ‘Essential’ to Graphic Designers; 95% Use Stock and Expect More in Future

New York, NY (PRWEB) September 26, 2013

An annual survey of Graphic Design USA (GDUSA) magazine readers shows that designers rely on stock visuals more than ever. The survey, which the 50 year old magazine has been conducting for 27 years, shows that 95 percent of designers use stock visuals in their work -- up from 34 percent when the survey first began in 1986. In addition, nearly two-thirds of designers use stock more than 20 times a year and one-third turn to this resource more than 100 times a year.

Corporate sponsor for the 2013 Stock Visual Survey is iStock by Getty Images. The results will be published in their entirety in print and online in early October.

“Over the past quarter century, stock visual use has evolved from marginal to mainstream and now into an essential designer resource in an image-centric world,” says Gordon Kaye, editor and publisher of GDUSA. “‘Essential’ is a loaded word and some may chafe at it. But if you simply look at frequency of stock visual use, it is hard to argue otherwise. As a practical matter, frequency of use is at an all-time, recordbreaking, once-unimaginable level. Nearly every designer uses stock visuals in his or her work and most turn to it frequently, often for ideas and inspiration as well as for execution.

”What has changed from the early days when stock visuals were a grudging last resort for creatives?

Says Kaye: “Stock visual usage works because its central value proposition — choice, accessibility, convenience, affordability — dovetails perfectly with the tight budgets, the short turnarounds, the challenging assignments, the multiple media, the demanding clients, and the digital workflow that graphic designers face every day. And it is clear from their comments that creatives believe stock providers are successfully responding with more content, better technology, more options. There has been an attitude adjustment: designers get that stock helps them stay balanced on the tightrope that is the creative business today.”

Readers were also asked to forecast the future role of stock imagery, as part of GDUSA’s 50th anniversary year-long look at the future of creativity. “Designers see the future of stock imagery as more of the same,” says Kaye, “and that is a good thing.” In general, they expect the coming years to be characterized by abundant content, quality imagery, and an increasingly efficient digital infrastructure.

The survey also reveals concerns and the hint of change in the air. Primarily, designers express fear that oversaturation, duplication, and dependence on stock images threatens originality and exclusivity. And in response to the changing culture and demographics of America, there are heartfelt calls for more diversity in image offerings by race, gender, age, and lifestyle. As for possible changes in image sourcing, a vocal minority noted the potential disruption of the camera phone, the looming influence of the cloud, and the possible migration -- not yet substantial -- of stock searches from desktops and laptops to tablets and mobile devices.

Insure.com Reveals The Most and Least Expensive 2010 Vehicles To Insure in Interactive Tool


Foster City, CA (PRWEB) March 15, 2010

Insure.com's annual ranking of average car insurance rates reveals that the Porsche Carrera GT2 two-door coupe is the most expensive vehicle to insure among 2010 models. A 40-year-old male would pay a national average of $ 2,943.78 for car insurance annually and that's assuming the driver has a good driving record.

On the other end of the scale is the Mazda Tribute I (2WD four-door SUV) the least expensive 2010 vehicle to insure among the more than 2,400 vehicles examined. Looking across other categories, the Dodge Caliber is the least expensive passenger car to insure, the GMC Canyon WT (2WD 2 Door 2.9L) is the least expensive pickup to insure, and the Honda Odyssey LX (5 Door 2WD SOHC) is the least expensive minivan to insure.

Youll find average premiums for more than 2,400 vehicles, including national and state averages, in Insure.coms new interactive car insurance comparison tool.

The profile of the average person who drives a particular model has great influence on the premiums for that vehicle. Costs for collision and comprehensive coverage are based on the model's "loss history." For example, small cars that are often driven by young, inexperienced drivers tend to be more expensive to insure. Car insurance rates also tend to rise with horsepower.

Macon, Georgia (PRWEB) May 16, 2013

The Rainbow Egg, by Linda Hendricks, shares the story of adoption through the eyes of the birthmother, not the eyes of the adopted child.

The book introduces a chicken named Hope, who lives without a nest in the forest with the bears, deer and turkeys.

Hendricks hopes that readers find the book highlights the love in adoption, showing adopted children that their birthmothers loved them very much.

I wanted to write a book that would give my adopted children a story of love where their background is concerned, says Hendricks. They must know that their birthmothers loved them very much.

The Rainbow Egg aims to display that birthmothers perform a selfless act of love when they place their child in an adoptive home.

Profitability Expert June R. Jewell Reveals How Corporate Culture Steals Profits from Businesses in New Book

Vienna, VA (PRWEB) May 28, 2013

Many businesses arent aware that there is money hiding in a company, and that corporate culture may be negatively affecting the bottom line. June R. Jewell, profitability expert, exposes the ten cultural traps that are stealing profits from businesses in her recently published book, Find the Lost Dollars: 6 Steps to Increase Profits in Architecture, Engineering, and Environmental Firms.

A companys corporate culture could be its own worst enemy, says Jewell, and can keep a business from moving forward. Her book dives into the basics of running a good business, from marketing and client relations, to cash management and computer systems.

The culture of your firm directly impacts your profitability. How you look at money, deal with your financial management, and manage your staff directly translates into policies, processes and behaviors that cause projects to go over budget. Without a healthy focus on profit, an owner may find it difficult to grow the business, says Jewell.

With over 28 years of business management consulting experience, Jewell has seen firsthand how culture cuts into profitability. Some of the culture traps discussed in her new book include:


Why it's critical to balance quality with budget

The importance of setting client expectations

How taking a low bid project cuts a companys profitability

How demanding clients adversely affect employee morale

Why time and materials contracts may be costing you money

Find the Lost Dollars: 6 Steps to Increase Profits in Architecture, Engineering, and Environmental Firms is available on Amazon as hardback, paperback, and Kindle book. For more information, please visit http://www.findthelostdollars.com.
