I recently read an article on SixRevisions called Details Make the Difference in Web Design by Jason Gross. I thought it was a great article for the most part, but that it left out a few things and didn’t touch on the importance of making sure a design detail is actually needed. So I thought I’d expand on it a bit. I’m looking for feedback here for sure. I’m also not claiming that I have this down personally, we all need to work on some area or another. Be sure to leave your thoughts below!Read More
When we need to make a presentation, we often think about using Microsoft Powerpoint. Whether it’s presentations for school, work, home or party, Microsoft Powerpoint seems to be the only choice. But Powerpoint’s got a whole lot of competition: Google Presentation, Impress, Symphony, and its strongest rival, Keynote.
Some of you may have heard of Keynote, the Apple version equivalent of Powerpoint. Loyal Mac users have raved about it.

So if you are thinking about packing your bags and getting on a plane, you might want to consider what you can expect, so you’re ready and prepared, when the time comes to board that plane.
As mentioned, I actually did go through a couple of countries in recent years and worked at various companies while doing it. I’ve learned a number of things while doing it, and hopefully some of the things I’ve learned will help you.
Of course I’m presuming you are looking for a job somehow related to design/coding etc., not construction or such.Read More
