Before I start, let me put up a disclaimer. You know, the one that helps me save myself when you guys sit on my head and kick my, well, you know what! See, I ain’t rich enough to fight against your lawyers so, here we go:
All characters and names mentioned by me today are not fictitious or imaginary. And any resemblance to many people living, dead, in a coma or just purely out of work is purely intentional and not at all regretted. Also, all ideas pushed are to kick you out of work. I love all you famous (and rich) designers and am lying!
Getting back to what we are here for. To give up on our tightly lipped schedules where we don’t have a minute free to say “Hello” to our own souls. You know, the world of Internet and freelancing is such that you got to fight against your free will so that you don’t end up messing your client’s time. It is like being on your toes if you don’t want the competition to rip your apart. But, have you noticed that most of us opt for freelancing because we want to get rid of the sick day jobs and be our own boss? Instead, we end up being a freelancer who is working like never before in order to rake in lots of money as quickly as possible.Read More
Wikis are a rare breed of websites – we all would agree on that. Designing a portfolio, corporate blog or any such website is an entirely different concept from designing wikis. When it comes to wikis, not only does the website ‘rise’ in terms of its size, but also in terms of complexity. Wikis need to be so designed that the finished website does not look clumsy or unorganized – no matter how much data it has, and at the same time is simple enough for even the most novice user to understand. Following that, and perhaps most importantly, wikis need to be edited not by an individual but an entire community – again, simplicity and ease of use come into play!Read More
Have you been naughty or nice this year? The holidays are just around the corner; we can even smell the mistletoe and your grandma’s eggnog in the air. The holidays are the perfect time for loving and sharing. Gift giving has long been a tradition associated with the holidays. What are you planning to give to your family and friends?
Designers and artists, and geeks in general, can be nitpicky when it comes to gifts. Most often, they don’t like gifts that are uncreative and uninspiring. If you want to make an effort this year by giving the best gifts for your designer friends, stop shopping at local shopping stores and malls. Sure, designers and creative types are easy to please–gift them with the latest iPad, smartphone, or a state-of-the-art Wacom tablet and you’ll be BFFs. But if you have a tight budget, better be creative! Explore unique gifts by going online.Read More
