Shield / Collegiate Logo Inspiration Feb 7, 13, 1:47 p.m.
I have a client looking for a logo and the inspiration is both the shield look and the collegiate look. I'm looking for some more inspiration to gather. They don't want it to look old or classic like some collegiate logos can.
A couple inspiration pieces they sent me were:
Baja 1000 Nov 9, 12, 11:35 a.m.
Anyone else going to Chase or Spectate for the Baja 1000 next week? I will be down in Ensenada on Wednesday and then driving south to the Bay of LA and all the way to La Paz.
If you're headed down there let's go grab a beer in Paris de Noche.
Custom Hangtag Ideas Aug 14, 12, 8:41 p.m.
So i have to produce about 300 custom hangtags for a collectors edition bike frameset coming out. The frame and fork are chrome plated and come in a white box which is nicely designed. I am having a hard time coming up with ideas as to what I could do to hand do these hangtags. There are only 300 total, so the thought of printing them is not what I want to do. My first thought was to do matte medium transfers on some metal pieces (about 2" x 3.5") but i don't want the metal to rub against the frame and cause scratches.
I am feeling like my only option is something with paper but it's the way i produce it that is making me feel stuck. I want the hand-made feel without it looking so shabby-chic-ish. It needs to look industrial but still be known that there was some form of hand touch.
Anyone with any thoughts or ideas?
Eurobike 2012 Jul 14, 12, 7:39 a.m.
Anyone headed to this show the end of August? I just got the green light to go and think we should have a QBN Eurobike Drinks.
Recommend an Audiobook Nov 28, 11, 9:52 p.m.
So I have a new job where I am on the road about 35 minutes each way to and from work. I would like to buy some audiobooks to listen to instead of always relying on music.
Here are some books I have read and loved:
Electro kool-aid acid test
Catcher in the eye
Some book about a guy who infiltrated the mongols motorcycle gang - cant remember the name
Anyone have any ideas for me?
Quark to InDesign Nov 23, 11, 11:37 a.m.
Any way i can save a Quark 8 file to open in InDesign CS4?
Photoshop CS4 Question Nov 16, 11, 1:27 p.m.
I'm on a Mac running CS4 and for some reason all my menus are coming up without everything listed. The bottom item on each menu says
"Show All Menu Items"
I want it to show them all the time. Is this something I can change? I can't find anything in the preferences.
Illustrator Question Nov 13, 11, 5 p.m.
I want to take this graphic and make it so that I can have it follow a path of type. I feel like I should know this, but I am not getting it right. Anyone with any recommendations? It is vector art, so I can break it up.
View Camera Equipment Oct 11, 11, 9:51 a.m.
I have a friend who is unloading his view camera equipment for really cheap. Here is a list of what he has. Let me know if you have any interest.
Here is a shot of the large format stuff I have had in boxes. I did some dusting. Most was kept wrapped in plastic but some time with a compressor would be great. It pains me to see it go so I am hoping to find these bits a home where they can get out and shoot.

Logo Survey Jul 21, 11, 12:52 p.m.
Just got this thing and am not sure what to make of it. I am not sure i like the way it would involve so many people. Projects with surveys like this would never get done.
Showing Catalog Work Jun 30, 11, 10:59 a.m.
So I have a ton of catalog work and was wondering if you had any good examples on how people display it in their portfolios. I guess I'm wondering if taking a photo of the catalog is best, or using a pdf spread to show certain pages.
Any examples would be appreciated.

InDesign Question-Tabs May 4, 11, 4:21 p.m.
I have InDesign CS4 and i am having a problem with my text box tabs snapping to odd measures. I want to drag them to a certain point, but they keep snapping. I am looking for this preference but can't find it to turn it off. Any ideas?
