Creativebits nostalgia

Once in a while in life we humans tend to be nostalgic and we think about how it was back in those days when you were a bit younger, crazy and when you joined or started something. I'm guessing we all heard our grand parents saying "Ooh those were the days" or "It was better before"..

The man in the hot air-balloon

A man in a hot air balloon realised he was lost. He reduced altitude and spotted a man outside a pub below. He descended a bit more and shouted:

"Excuse me, can you help me? I promised a friend I would meet him an hour ago, but I don't know where I am."

The man below replied, "You are in a hot air balloon hovering approx 30 feet above the ground. You are between 40 and 41 degrees north latitude and between 59 and 60 degrees longitude."

"You must be in Production" said the balloonist.

"I am" replied the man, "how did you know?"

Busy bee

I'd like to apologize for the lack of blog posts nowadays. I have a new job and I'm unbeliveably busy. I had no uninterrupted holiday or weekend for the last 2 month and many times I get home after midnight. But, I'm loving it! Because of my NDA I can't talk about the job. Let me just tell you, it's a kick ass advertising agency. I'm not sure when will I get my life back... I was even thinking about passing on the stick and sell creativebits, because i would like the blog to be continued as it was before even if somebody else was in charge.

Congratulations CreativeBits

The November/December 2005 issue of Layers Magazine (an excellent design software resource, by the way) features CreativeBits in their Web Watch section on page 16.

While I would like to say congrats to Ivan, I feel I must say congrats to everyone who has contributed here since the launch of CB v.2 – since you all had a part in it.

Photoshop radio recommends cb

I mentioned in this blog entry that Photoshop radio has a bit too many urls for an audio broadcast. I highly appreciate that they went ahead and fixed this issue for us. If you go to the blog site of PS radio you have all the links listed for you, so you don't need to jot down those urls.

More ideas for getting ideas

Some people think that creative professionals can come up with a dozen ideas in half as many seconds, but the truth is that even people with 20 years experience sometimes have hard times coming up with ideas. We are here to help. :-)

Coming up with ideas by yourself is the best: your wildest ideas can not be shot down by a dumbass collegue, and you the fat snobby art director who couldn't draw a straight line to save his life doesn't add his two cents to your production.

CB RSS feed in your screensaver

RSS Feed

Apple has made a really nice screensaver called RSS Visualizer that in a 3d style reads a RSS feed while your’e away and you’ve set that your screensaver starts in certain minutes..

Perhaps you want to impress your co workers with this screensaver which perhaps is running Windows (Cough Cough) and they can read latest blog posts on Creative bits.

Poke my precious and die

Don't you just love it when account executives start pointing at your screen with their greasy fingers leaving shiny fingerprints?

These guys should understand that this is not just a monitor they are poking at. It's the window we're looking through 90% of our work time. If it's dirty we can't see the details, we would have to zoom in and out all the time. We would have to double check the shades of colors to see if it is just dirt on the screen or if it is in fact there digitally. It drives us crazy.
