My blog is getting a new home!

WHAT’S IN STORE FOR THE NEW BLOG:

I’ve re-organized my categories to three overlying ideas:

Design: All my series on design practices, client stories, and how to’s will be housed here.

Refresh: All my photography posts and adventures away from the computer will live here.

Inspire: A new section, devoted to inspiring artists, books, and anything else creative.

My goal is to be both a practical resource for creatives who are just starting out, as well as provide inspiring posts, incorporating my own photography and illustration.

POSTS ON THE WAY:

Art of Price sheets (great for freelance designers and photographers)

Freelance Trial and Error: Battling Fort Knox (the client that wouldn’t let me use my work in my portfolio)

Adventure: Fort Sheridan (Photography post about going to Fort Sheridan, Illinois for the weekend)
