There is a stereotype between e-mail users which states that you can tell what kind a person is by just looking at his/her e-mail.

If you’re an Oatmeal fan, what comes to mind? This.Read More

You’ve probably read the introduction already, but here we go again. Today we’ll talk about how to get ready to work. Actually it doesn’t matter if it’s about blogging, coding, designing, because in most cases we need to work alone and we want to be focused to do our job really well. Though this article has tips that almost anyone can use, freelancers may find it particularly valuable , because they don’t have to go to work from 9-5 each day.
Being able to pick and choose when you work and when you don’t is such a pleasure , but it also comes with a lot of time management issues, people get distracted and end up sitting at their computer all day but not actually doing anything. Why is that?Read More

Here is something that I believe touches the design community and each of its members on a personal level each day. We all use inspiration and we have a “design style.” But where the line begins to become blurry is right between trends and greatness.
