SKIP THE DESIGNER
TO GET YOUR DESIGN

Montag, September 15th, 2014

I came across this bit of news on t3n.de: Tailor Brands is out there. There’s 2 ways to deal with it: ignore it or deal with it. Well, I gave it a try to see whether logo machines like 99 designs, fiverr and tailorbrands pose a threat to our (financial) existence as professional designers.

Here’s a sequence of what my input steps were in order to get an uninspired logo that didn’t appeal to me and reassured me: I will live on as a designer!

THE NEW AND THE OLD
SIDE BY SIDE

Dienstag, August 5th, 2014

It wasn’t until now, when my old 2007 MB was sitting next to my 2013 MB Pro, that I paid attention to the massive difference in detail between the old “low” res and new retina res screens. Wowser!

The number on the calculator icon apparently refers to the year 1975 when the first Apple computer was produced. More OS X icon easter eggs are listed here.

PHEW! MORE SPACE!
NOW AND BEFORE

Finally I have a bit more space to breathe and work with in Illustrator (Top: Eizo 27″, bottom: 13″ MB Pro). Means less much scrolling per square inch!
