MKC Photography Rebrand

Just finished up a little rebranding work for Mary Collier of MKC Photography. Most locals know of Mary’s excellent natural light photographs featuring families, kids, and infants. She does wonderful work and needed a visual identity that better reflected what her brand has become. It’s always fun to work with other creatives because they often…

& The World Goes ‘Round…

A while back I did a simple shirt mockup for the Wenatchee World, just for fun. Turns out a lot of folks liked it and the World decided to produce it.  It’s now available on their online shop. Check it out!

Illustrator: Rotate Guides

Another useful tool is the ability to rotate guides in Illustrator. You can do this by first creating a horizontal or vertical guide on your Artboard. Next, select “R” and then click anywhere on the guide. This should create a retical point. Finally, click and drag anywhere on the Artboard and watch your guide rotate…

Illustrator: Copy Artboard + Contents

I keep forgetting this simple trick so I’m going to jot it down. In Adobe Illustrator you can copy your artboard and all of it’s content by selected the Artboard Tool and then hold down Option and click/drag the existing artboard to it’s new location. This will create a copy of the artboard dimensions and…

iceber.gs

When searching for creative inspiration and other useful things, one of the problems I’ve faced when actually finding them is being able to keep track and store them. I’ve built quite an extensive bookmark folder tree, but it becomes rather useless when it’s time to actually go back and find something specific. I’ve also used…

OSX Server

This week we stepped our game up and finally invested in a server at work. We went with a Mac Mini running OSX Server and so far it’s been pretty awesome. It’s a big leap forward in comparison to where we were (shared files). No more file permission issues, new shared calendars and contacts, internal…

PressPausePlay

This is a pretty great documentary about the creative culture. It takes a look at the art world now that the masses have access to just about any tool as well as the saturation of content. It raises questions like, is true talent drowned out? Pretty interesting and worth a watch.

VirtualBox and Internet Explorer

If you’re a web designer and on a Mac like me, then you’ve probably experienced the difficulties that go along with testing sites in Internet Explorer. There are those great resources out there like BrowserStack and Adobe Browser Labs (sadly discontinued), but what if you don’t want to pay $20 bucks a month just to test…

Add Spaces to your Dock Menu

Mac used to support spaces in the Dock menu on old OS versions, but for some reason that feature has been removed in the more recent renditions. When you have a lot of apps sitting in the Dock, like I do, it can be a little cumbersome when things get crowded. So that’s why I thought I’d…
