Monday, January 11 2016: When creating a website project, it’s always important to think about the end users of the site. Frequently it’s the case, however, that many designers focus too much on creating a site that will impress their clients, forgetting that it’s the audience who really matter.What you need to do as a designer, is talk with your client and keep the focus on the intended audience and make sure the client is thinking the right way. You want to keep pushing the point that whatever features you are including in the design are features that are going to greatly improve the user experience and that the audience will love these features.This is necessary because clients have an even greater tendency to forget the purpose of creating the website than designers do. First identify the audienceAre they kids? Geeks? Geeky kids? Justin Bieber fans? Well you need to be thinking about that from the... + continue reading

Tuesday, December 29 2015: If the project you were contracted for should last through holidays like Christmas, be sure to neglect the project for the entirety of the holidays. After all, your priorities during festive seasons should be on things like recreation and hanging out with your friends or family. Never mind the fact that your client already paid you a hefty retainer…which you’re already using. Plenty of web designers are consummate professionals who strive to do the best for their clients and provide excellent service. These are designers who rightly have pride in their work and love what they do. Then, unfortunately, you also have the other side of the equation: designers who don’t care about making their clients happy, and therefore don’t provide good service. These are designers whose standards are poor.Worse yet, from the client’s perspective, you can’t really weed out who’s who until you’... + continue reading
Saturday, December 19 2015: One of the most common questions we get is “How do I pick the right t-shirt for my project?” And, with so many options available to you in today’s market, it’s not an easy question to answer.We typically recommend going with the best shirt your budget affords, as people like to wear shirts that fit well, are soft, and will last for a long time.When determining what shirt is right for your project, material is the first essential element to consider. Cotton is, by far, the most common material used to make garments, and manufacturers use a variety of terms to let you know what type of cotton they are using. 100% Preshrunk Cotton and 100% Ringspun Cotton are the two most common types used. Manufacturers also use synthetic fibers including Polyester, Rayon and Spandex in garments as well. Sometimes these fibers will be blended with the natural cotton to yield a different type of... + continue reading
Saturday, December 19 2015: Foil is a specialty print option that’s become very popular! It adds a new vividness of color to your shirt and if done well can really make your design stand out. Here are the most common questions we’re asked about foil. How do you apply foil to a shirt? It is applied to your shirts by first printing your design with a special glue using our press.

Saturday, December 19 2015: Businesses obsess over their visual brands. They spend days debating the typeface selection, but give no thought to the words. In most cases, a company will assign the first wave of written communication to someone internal who’s “good at writing.” This is usually an English major, who knows a lot about spelling and grammar, but knows nothing about how to bring a brand’s voice to life. This means the company’s first website, press release and product guide are a collage of this poor staffer’s voice, what they think the company is, and arbitrary edits made during the revision process. Writing using your brand’s voice needs to be done correctly from the very start. Otherwise, it’s impossible to know if your brand is effective. Too often, a company’s brand image is on point, but it’s being dragged down by mindless copy, with no clear voice. This leads the company to... + continue reading
