There are dozens of major outdoor festivals held throughout the summer months, each seeking to catch the eye of people with limited time and money. Even in a digital age, the classic one-sheet concert poster – like the iconic Woodstock poster below – remains a design staple. A well-designed poster is both functional and artistic and seeks to present logististical information in a visually captivating way.
A successful festival poster must overcome a few design challenges. First, the design must accommodate information about the lineup and location, which normally is best presented as text. Given that a festival can range anywhere from two to five days, a designer must be creative …
Let’s face it… Photoshop’s default graphics are old and tired. The presets that come packaged with Photoshop are barely used if at all. It’s left to the designer to create their own collections of resources by hand, which can be a daunting and time consuming process. Enter PsDefaults as the solution.
Last week we released a free WordPress theme title Bello. For this theme we set out to make something simple and elegant. The theme is intended for designers or photographers, but could easily be converted for use with small business or personal sites.

It seems that more and more designers are trying their hand at the t-shirt business. I’ve noticed this to be a growing trend over the past few years. There are so many incredible t-shirt lines out there, and so many apparel companies to compete with, it seems like an overwhelmingly daunting task for a young designer to get started in the clothing business. Well not necessarily, if you take things a step at a time, make a plan, and tackle each task with an end goal in mind getting your foot in the door of the t-shirt industry can be easier than you think.
Like so many others, I began my design career by experimenting with Adobe Photoshop. At the time bitmap graphics were more accessible and more easy to understand. Vector graphics, Adobe Illustrator and especially bezier curves contained a shroud of mystique, and I was having too much fun with Photoshop to see what was behind Illustrator’s magic curtain. Fast forward a few years later when I began to dabble in logo design, and suddenly Illustrator became the go-to tool. What amazed me was how much I had missed out on by not picking up Illustrator along side Photoshop in the beginning.
Since the release of Roundfolio, I’ve received a lot of requests in regards to the round gallery images and how they were created. The round thumbnail is really just one transparent PNG image overlaying each thumbnail in the gallery. You typically see PNG images used as subtle shadows or image borders, but with Roundfolio we took it a step further and created a full transparent mask to change the shape of the thumbs. Let’s take a closer look at how this is done, and a bit of HTML/CSS to make it all work.
Since launching the Roundfolio One Page Portfolio Template last week, I’ve gotten several requests for a tutorial on how to edit the HTML. In response I’ve put together a quick video tutorial that runs through some of the structure to show you how easy Roundfolio can be updated and managed.
