Everybody shut up!

Video on the web is everywhere and even I, who dislikes YouTube as much as your granny dislikes your new boyfriend, cannot avoid the occasional odd encounter when people ask for specific effects they like on forums, pointing to those video references. Now for the most part, I really don’t care how it works as […]

Bad Taste Party

It’s spring and everything is in bloom, hormones are raging, sex drive is increasing and apparently so is some people’s creativity – or at least what they perceive it to be. Could be me, but there seems some sort of explosion of "Please help me with my logo" threads recently and I swear if I […]

Print is dead, long live InDesign?

Today is an odd anniversary for a product, that, while considerably younger than Photoshop, may be with us for a much shorter time in years to come. Yes, the talk is about InDesign.
