On Creative Leadership

I have spent nearly a decade experimenting with a single goal in mind: to create scalable, predictably insightful, inspirational environments.

Few applications feel as complete as Adobe’s InDesign. First released in 1999 as a direct attack against the then-industry standard, Quark, the page-layout application has been made faster and more feature-rich with each iteration. But even the best applications lack some features.

InDesign Scripts And Plugins To Speed Up Your Work

Introducing LiveStyle: Better, Stronger And Smarter CSS Live Reload

In the past, we featured some exciting tools and libraries: PrefixFree, Foundation, Sisyphus.js, GuideGuide, Gridpak, JS Bin and CSSComb. All of them have been developed and released by active members of the Web design community as open-source projects. Today, we present LiveStyle, a plugin for live bi-directional (editor ↔ browser) CSS editing of the new generation! — Ed.

Tools for live CSS editing aren't new these days. You may already be familiar with tools like LiveReload, CodeKit and Brackets. So, why would someone ever need to create yet another tool and even call it a "live CSS editor of the new generation"?

The Joy Of Illustrated Maps In The Era Of Google Earth

In my career as a freelance illustrator, map-making has become a favorite specialty of mine. With each map assignment, I virtually travel across the globe, visiting places I’ve never been. Most recent was a “trip” to New Zealand for a sampling of local Wellington beer for Draft Magazine.

The Joy Of Illustrated Maps In The Era Of Google Earth

My maps are designed to appear next to magazine stories about trips to faraway places, or about the best restaurants in a nearby neighborhood. I create them in Adobe Illustrator, and I relish the research process as much as working on the drawings themselves.
