Amazing Color Selection Web App By Adobe
I’ve been using Kuler for years. It’s a flash based color selection Web App by Adobe, that was recommended to me by a college buddy way back when. It comes in handy, during those times when I get stuck on deciding which colors will work right within a particular project.
Kuler allows it’s users to choose from custom colors created by other users, or create their own colors with the use of a dynamic and interactive color wheel. Users can also copy and paste hexadecimal values into programs like Illustrator and photo composting programs like Photoshop and After Effects. This really comes in handy!
Kuler also gives you the option to choose your colors based on an image! Isn’t that Awesome !!?

Just received my new Sketchbook and Pencil Set today !
Sketchbook and Pencil Set
It’s important as Designers that we draw regularly and daily if possible. Drawing is the root of good, well thought out Design and Animation and will help out tremendously when going through the pre-production stages of a project.
I received this Sketchbook and Pencil set from Amazon today. It’s been awhile since I drew on a consistent daily basis and I believe that I can take my creativity to the next level, once I begin to do so again. I’ll definitely be sure to keep everyone here posted on anything cool that I come up with… I’m excited!
Now this is what I call Design Brilliance ! …and the perfect way to honor someone !
The image above is actually an iPhone screensaver/wallpaper that’s going around on Facebook. I found it on the iPhone 4s Facebook Page. Feel free to take this and use it on your iPhone.
There’s even a campaign on FB to make this re-branding a reality, by having Apple create a limited edition: iPhone 4 Steve model, as seen below.
Proposed 4 Steve Limited Edition
You will definitely be missed. I was on my home from work when I found out this sad news. At first I thought that it may be a distasteful rumor, but it was confirmed by Apple. This is a sad loss, but the Legacy of Steve Jobs will remain. I feel fortunate that I was able to live throughout and experience the innovations he left with us.
I believe that every profession in the world has a dress code and it seems that the standard for us designers is about as simple as it gets. Sneakers, jeans and a t-shirt of some sort. That’s it! Pretty simple right!?
We Love Fine T-shirt
That’s why, when I ran across this site yesterday, I had to share it with everyone. It’s called We Love Fine .com and they have some pretty cool, nicely designed shirts there. The selection ranges from anything from Star Wars (of course…) and Marvel comic book characters, to my little pony.
I’ll definitely be sending for 2 of these shirts soon, that is, after I get a new i-phone of course.
PS- I love the $8 dollar t-shirts at Old Navy as well…
…and also, don’t ever show up to a design gig or interview wearing a suite and tie. (in most cases anyway)
