A friend once told me (while discussing wines & spirits) to learn about coffees too… " Because you’ll eventually need them, if / when you enjoy too much good spirits."How to be an Adult 201
Shit, I’m a chef and still don’t know all of this!
How about we just buy anything under $15 and call it a day?
Reblogging for science
Infographics and wine are the best!
I’m building a custom theme in power point using the master slides for a client. The slide has to be an 8 x 10 format. I’m importing the logo to the master slide as a pdf for quality control. I then created custom layouts for the theme.
Whenever I try to import the theme to a presentation, it crashes the program. I’ve done this with two other documents, using the same pdf logo. Anyone have any ideas as to what the heck is going on? Is it the custom size? The pdf logo?
In related news, I hate powerpoint.
I’m having a bit of a ragey moment right now. I’m so sick of clients agreeing to a price point, signing a contract and then wanting to renegotiate 3 days later.
Yes, I could drop the client. Yes, I could try to force them to uphold the contract. But I’m an independent business, so my name is my reputation. It’s not worth it.
But really, when you end a conversation with me after negotiating my price $300 below our agreed upon cost, and then you say, “I really want you to be happy with this arrangement” I want to laugh in your face.
Because are you serious? You want me to be happy with the fact that you just nickel and dimed me out of $300?
Also. Don’t say, “I don’t want the lower price to affect the quality of the work you produce.” That’s really arrogant. And rude. Because I don’t send clients work that I don’t believe in and you just made the assumption that I would.
Though they do say that the trifecta in design is a myth. You can get good design cheap. You can get cheap design fast. But you can’t get good design cheap and fast.
That moment when you are working on a project and you have an “aha!” moment and realize you have an awesome solution to the design dilemma. And you are so excited to execute it. And then you realize that your client will probably never buy into it because they just don’t understand and it will be cast into the corner with so many of your other great ideas never to see the light of day again.
That is the moment that makes me wish I didn’t have clients. And then I remember that I like money. So I start working again.
This morning the Atlanta Design Collaborative met to begin planning out some community events… It’s a pretty amazing group of people and I am really honored to have been asked to join the conversation! I look forward to sharing upcoming news and events in the Atlanta area and hope to be more involved as this incredible group really gets rolling!
Hand lettering first draft for an engagement invitation #recoveryweekend #fridaynight #typography #lettering #design
In the design world, there is a difference between the art of drawing letterforms and the writing of beautiful lettering. This website explores that difference by matching up a lettering artist and a calligrapher. Each artist is given the same word by a moderator and has to create a letter for the day based on that word, you can vote and purchase prints of your favorites.
Thanks to one of my awesome students, I have discovered the design-seeds website. What a great tool for designers to compile color palettes. I could get sucked into this for hours. I love that they show you the photography and where the inspiration comes from. Brilliant.
