Hello, my design friends and loyal readers!

I bet you’ve noticed little silence here and how articles don’t come out as often then they should, but I have really strong reason for it. For 2 weeks now, I have session and examinations in academy, so of course my daily work-flow is really messed up – I am working almost until morning, then sleep through days, wait for teachers, try to print everything out in time and so on.
