Madras Day is a day of celebrations organised in the city of Madras (Chennai), the capital city of the Indian state of Tamil Nadu. It is celebrated on 22 August every year, and is named after the city.
Originally, this celebration used to last for a day but now it extends for a week. Madras Day focuses on the city, its history, its past and its present and the core team motivates communities, groups, companies and campuses in the city to host events that celebrate the city.
The celebration consists of events such as heritage walks (including a “tree walk”), public talks, exhibitions, poetry reading sessions, public performances, food festivals and special programs on local radio. It also includes contests such as, T-shirt designing, documentary film contest, multimedia presentation for schools and quiz in both Tamil and English. T-shirts to mark the event are also released. The talks delivered to mark the week long celebrations usually involve lectures explaining the heritage and history of the city. There are also events for the retired citizens where they can post their life years ago on the “Stories about Madras section” on Madras day’s website and their views on how Madras grew into the Chennai of today.
Indian postal department released a postal cover to commemorate Madras day on 22 August 2007.

Being a designer I always feel that I’m gifted with super natural powers and sometimes I feel it’s a curse. I’ve made this poster by keeping this quote in mind: “I’m a designer not a fuckin screw designer” actually this is how most of the people treat creative minds; few things really make designers’ angry so treat them properly because I remember someone saying “Design is all about problem solving.” and that’s true, we are problem solvers and I take this chance to relate my thoughts with a screw driver.
Okay! so whats this graphic designers day is all about and why it’s being celebrated?

Its an opportunity to recognize communication design and its role in the world.
Graphic design is a creative process, one most often involving a client and a designer, and traditionally completed in conjunction with producers of form. Graphic design is undertaken to convey a specific message to a targeted audience, usually from the client, known as the ‘brief’. The term “graphic design” can also refer to a number of artistic and professional disciplines that focus on visual communication and presentation.
Different strategies are utilized to make and join together words, images, and pictures to make a visual representation of thoughts and messages. A graphic designer may utilize a mix of typography, visual expressions and page layout procedures to process a balanced, focused and symmetrical rendered result.

Spike Jonze’s Her can best be depicted as a cutting edge fable of a man who goes gaga for his hyper-mindful, misleadingly keen working framework. We are now at a point where most individuals have more made associations with their tech-savvy gadgetry than one another. Additionally, most working frameworks and programming these days guarantee to fulfil their buyer’s each necessity, and Her investigates that idea to its compelling.
With respect to the artistic details inside the film: it is implanted with solid written work, the film is outwardly taking part in its retro look and the beautiful cinematography is flawless which just adds to the melancholic and delicate experience. It is Jonze’s virtuoso consolidated with Phoenix and Johansson’s sensational acting abilities, which counteracts the film from veering into ridiculous domain or impelling doubt. Rather, it shows a touching affection story that is satisfactory as an impression of the human states of loneliness and fulfilment and an imminent reality.
