Remember when you were but a wee lad or lass, and you just started using a computer? If you are anything like us, then one of the first things that really stuck out about the computer were the small pictures that opened up into programs when you double-clicked them. We are, of course, talking about icons. Like little, precious jewels, icons are not only a really cool design element, but they are also an integral part of what makes computers, smartphones and tablets user friendly.
Photography is one of man kind’s greatest breakthroughs. Before it, representations of the self or images of places you liked were a thing that only the well and truly upper class could afford, since the only people that could provide you with them were painters. Photography changed all that, making images readily available for a much wider group of people, and eventually revolutionizing things like journalism and even art. Truly, we owe a lot of what is modern society to the invention of film.
