Quick little update today to make sure you don’t miss the Nordic parts of the Adobe CS6 Launch Tour. My friends at Adobe, Terry White, Jason Levine, Rufus Deuchler and Paul Trani will be traveling across Europe in the coming weeks, starting with the Nordic region this week!
The tour stops are all free to go to, just register in advance at the respective websites. I’ll be in Stockholm myself on Thursday for some CS6 fun! Here are the Nordic dates:
There are a few more events too later this month in other cities than the capitals if you can’t make it to these ones. They’re not with all the Evangelists though, but check out your local Adobe site for them too.
PS: The Creative Cloud is shipping on Friday so don’t forget to check that out. The full CS6 version is available today, including the trials.
One of my everlasting topics that I keep thinking about is the subject of photographers and other creative professionals that do their (your) own websites. I’m probably not alone in spending some time thinking about this as the general consensus from the design industry is that this is bad practice. I disagree, but there is a but!
If you’re not a web designer you should definitely still be able to build your own website. The tools today make it even simpler too. There’s just one thing that I think anyone should do when venturing into a field that isn’t their comfort zone: Ask for advice!
Simple enough, there are many web designers that you can ask for advice. While many choose to do their own sites to save money, it is cost-effective to say, pay for an hours worth of consulting to get advice on how to improve your site from any standpoint.
Keep doing it yourself but don’t forget to ask for some advice because that’s a quick and cheap way of improving, isn’t it?
I am honored to have been asked to speak at the Designer Developer Workflow Conference (D2WC) in Kansas City on May 16-18. I will be talking about how to make WordPress look good on Mobile platforms on the afternoon of Friday, May 18th. What makes me thrilled about this conference is the topics and my fellow speakers such as Greg Rewis, Justin Seeley, Stephanie Sullivan-Rewis and more—many of whom I am pleased to call my friends.
Go check out what’s going on at D2WC this year and register for the conference. It’s going to be so much fun! Once again, thanks to Dee for inviting me.
Hey folks. I wanted to share a quick Photoshop tip that is very useful to me when designing. Often times I want to rotate text or transform it somehow and instead of leaving the type tool and go into Free Transform, you can do it directly from the Type Tool. Isn’t that cool?
This spring is going to be a pretty awesome time. Mark your calendars for an event by Adobe on Monday, April 23rd at 10a.m Pacific Time that is on Adobe’s page titled Creative Cloud and CS6 launch. I’m exited, are you?
