Formal Education for Web and Graphic Design

Saturday, January 29th, 2011

I love the web design and graphic design industry – I really do. It started out as my “video game” and it became an addiction. I love fast-paced environments that change constantly, and where the process of learning new ways to do things never ends. I honesty never thought I’d make a good living doing it; it’s what I did (and still do) for fun.

Although there are many other qualified people to speak on this subject, I write this post from experience from what I have personally seen in this industry regarding education. (more…)

Overcoming an all too Common Content Development Block

Thursday, June 24th, 2010

We never recommend designing your own logo or attempting to put your own Web site together. Graphic design and web design standards change too often for the average consumer to know what’s on the up and up, and to actually produce something that will have any kind of shelf life. (more…)

Desktop Publishing – Part 1

Thursday, September 6th, 2007

From time to time, we’ll run across a client or two that wants to be able to produce some designs from their own office without utilizing the services of a professional media or graphics design firm. Many people have Microsoft Publisher, and while it is never recommended to use Publisher to produce professional print pieces that will be printed on a professional press or print shop, it does do a great job in your day to day desktop publishing for in house stuff.
