I haven't participated in a poster contest since 12th grade. The only reason I won was because I was the only participant. So, I'm surfing, doing my rounds, when I get to Veer.com, a favorite source of mine for fonts and artwork. They were sponsoring a digital poster contest, where they give...

No longer a member of the "99 Week" brigade and I'm thankful. I feel like this could be a new beginning and a way to get back on my feet again. New York has given me a second chance. New neighborhood, new building, and new responsibilities. Having a full-time job is exciting; keeping a...
A friend recently turned me on to a site that allows designers to pitch designs. One particular project caught my eye; an opportunity to submit a design for an annual music compilation. The client, in their written brief, requested, "fluro colours, bold text and maybe a hint of Ibiza/summery...

The events of the last few days have truly been the pits. Like watching a bad Italian opera. A son is forever banished from his father's house; the son’s loyal friends battle with the father’s supporters, and a legion of ghostly apparitions only known as The Anonymous jeer and mock on the other...

Due to my lack of finding full-time work, I recently took up a hobby. It all started with my purchase of a Canon MP560 with print, scan and copy capabilities. Just as a goof, I printed out some digital photos on good photo paper and to my astonishment, really liked the results. The...
Most people know me enough to know that I appreciate great design. So, when I see great design, then by gosh, I'm gonna tell the world about it. I recently ordered a perfume for myself that came inside this package. I enjoy the color combination and the little details, such as the bow, that I...
Did you ever see a product that seems like it is featured everywhere? It’s in brochures and circulars and you wonder if it’s right for your lifestyle, or it’s just another excuse to clutter the kitchen? When I went to visit my in-laws for Thanksgiving last year, they recently got what they...

Recently, I went on a job interview as a production artist for a greeting card company. Besides testing me on layout and graphic software, they gave me what they refered to as a "fun" test on how well I can distinguish color. If I read this correctly, zero is supposed to be a perfect score. I...

NEEDED: Cat tail. Will pay top $$$. Call Petunia at 888-MEOW .
I recently went on a job interview in Chelsea, so I was delighted to learn that this would give me the opportunity to visit one of New York's most talked-about markets; Eataly on 5th Ave and 23rd Street. Part of a popular chain in Italy and owned by notable chefs Mario Batali and Lidia...

The Grammy Awards were on Sunday night, (2.14.11). I generally don't watch them, but this year, I was mildly curious. The show was rehaulded a few years back to focus primarily on performances and less on the Best-Animal-or-Vegetable-Featured-on-a-Long-Playing-Movie-Soundtrack type presentations...
