tan-tango 0Color of the Year!

Earlier this year, Pantone LLC, the global authority on color and provider of professional standards for the design industries, announced PANTONE® 17-1463 Tangerine Tango as the color of the year for 2012.

The 2011 color of the year, PANTONE 18-2120 Honeysuckle, encouraged us to face everyday troubles with verve and vigor. Tangerine Tango, a spirited reddish orange, continues to provide the energy boost we need to recharge and move forward.


World of Change

Change Ahead sign.Why fight it?

I believe it was Socrates who said “The only constant in life is change.” The ones who accept it and embrace it tend to be somewhat less anxious or frustrated as each new change takes place. The printing industry is no exception.

Title ShotThe Photographer's Rights?

A few weeks ago, two friends and I went out on a Saturday morning to see what we might photograph in downtown Toledo. Our first stop was a public space, but we quickly found ourselves at odds with a cranky security agent. Fortunately we’re all pretty good guys, so we were let off with only a warning.

roundupSomething Different

I am a big fan of what a lot of blogs refer to as a Roundup. If you are not familiar with a roundup style post – they will highlight the best of web content for a particular topic.

I’m not going to say that this is the best of but I thought I would share my normal list of sites that I frequent, and some of my favorite bookmarks.

The Back Story

Before I get into this, let’s establish why I am sharing these and the overall purpose.

I am passionate about the web. I am passionate about design. I like learning, being inspired, and challenged.

I also like food. (See the “Inspiration” section below to understand this comment.)

Basically, it comes down to this: I’m a web and mobile app developer who likes design. I wouldn’t consider myself overly intelligent – I just really like to learn new things.

I’m always asked questions about how to do something or how I learned something. “Where do I start?” “How’d you learn that?”

That is really what I want to share here.

If you have any interest in technology, the web, design, programming, or just being inspired – I highly recommend that you check these sites out.
