Such a wonderful insight into the "cult of busyness". I often feel myself getting into the exact same situation, and it's liberating to take a step back to consider where my main priorities lie. If you only read one article this week, make it this one.
I really enjoyed Ryan's talk at Creative Bath — lots of interesting insight into the Treehouse business, and workflow tips/ideas.
A video recap of our trip to Niagara Falls last week!
It’s one of those things that you never really even consider possible, until it happens to you. I found out last week that someone had “hijacked” the domain name of one of the sites I manage - Design Shack.
I’ve published a short post that outlines all the details surrounding the situation. Needless to say, it isn’t the most pleasant start to a month filled with festive Christmas cheer!
We’ve completely re-launched the Premium version of our Tuts+ blogs with a fresh design, far more content, courses, eBooks, forums, and a much simpler way to navigate your way around all our archived tutorials.
I’m incredibly proud to be a (small) part of the team behind such a fantastic educational resource!
Having completed several mini-projects to design a new “blog” for myself online, I’ve come to realise that the motivation boost from launching a design refresh isn’t sufficient to encourage me to get back into writing and linking every day. The surge of new blogging energy usually only lasts a week at most…
Despite this, I still feel that it’s important to have a site online to call my own — something more than just a link to my social media profiles. With that in mind, don’t expect this new blog design to come hand in hand with a flurry of regular posting activity. It might, but it’s an expectation I won’t be placing upon myself.
Let’s see how it goes…
Although I don’t consider my profession to necessarily centre around creativity in the same way that Elizabeth’s does, I still felt that this video resonated with me. It’s a completely different take on what you might consider “creative block”, and goes a long way toward explaining why the creative profession can be so challenging and frustrating at times.
Mike Monteiro and his lawyer talking about client contracts, payments, and all the legal aspects of working as a designer. A lively and fascinating video that’s well worth half an hour of your time.
These are definitely going on my “coffee gadget” shopping list…
A fantastic interview with a very interesting personality. Never expected Jamie Oliver to know so much about apps, or be such a geek when it comes to video and filming…
A great idea. $5/month for quality, regular articles from your favourite writers. The perfect way to support these fantastic blogs.
It’s been a while since I published my own opinion piece on AppStorm, and I’m quite happy with how this one turned out.
If you love notebooks as much as I do, you’ll love this…
