The Blank Slate: Free vs Paid Design Resources

It’s time once again for The Blank Slate, an open forum discussion on thoughts, issues and topics related to the design industry. For this issue, I have a really interesting topic, one that seems to have strong opinion on both sides of the issue. Where do you stand on the free vs paid design resources available on the web today?

The Benefits and Perils of Working as a Subcontracted Designer

Every freelance designer’s dream is to find not only loyal clients but also good clients that refer work back to them.

The Blank Slate: What’s the Craziest Thing You’ve Used in Design?

The Blank Slate: What’s the Craziest Thing You’ve Used in Design?
