Kubrick: Hardass

My favorite piece from LACMA’s Kubrick retrospective was his exchanges with Saul Bass regarding The Shining’s branding.

Mapbox addresses a growing need and is worth a good look.

Fear is the Mind Killer

July 23rd, 2014

It’s been a while. Freelancing has be touch and go. Web projects tend to checkerboard out with a lot of hurry-up-and-wait scenarios. So I’m trying to be a bit better at syncing parallel projects so I don’t have so many days where I feel stressed over looming projects but have little to actually execute. Though, […]

Outlining a Service Area in Google Maps

June 19th, 2014

This will be quick. I’m posting this mainly because I had such a hard time finding explanations or walk-throughs for what seemed like a fairly straightforward goal. I’m not incredibly skilled at scripting yet and I’ve only scratched the surface of fully leveraging available APIs. My for-dummies solution actually ended up being super simple, but […]

Two Point Uhhh

May 28th, 2014

I’ve had a bit of free time the past few weeks and figured it an opportune time to spiff up the site. There was a slew of little bugs in the last iteration that got kicked embarrassingly far down the road. I’ve been working with Genesis a lot the past year so, rather than just […]

Adult Swim: Masters of Deep Cut Parody

March 25th, 2014

Adult Swim started by appealing to dumb stoners. Now they’ve graduated to thoughtful stoners. Probably thanks in part to Tim and Eric, they’ve seriously upped their parody game, with an emphasis on the esoteric. This Saint Patrick’s movie trailer blew my mindgrapes. Yoinked from Splitsider

On Border-Radius

July 17th, 2013

Nine out of ten times I think rounded corners are lame – both in websites and in business cards. It’s often a cheap, easy method of adding “character” to something you otherwise wouldn’t think twice about. If a website were a party, the div with rounded corners is the guy wearing a monocle. But if […]

Simple CSS Polaroids

July 17th, 2013

This is a pretty basic demo for those who are just be getting into leveraging of CSS. I came up with this recipe while working for a particularly mercurial client. There are a bazillion ways to pull this off. The idea behind this method is that it’s quick and relatively lightweight, assuming you don’t mind […]

Digital Morgue

June 24th, 2013

Usually a the term “morgue” in a graphic arts context refers to a collection of reference imagery – often used by illustrators, who from time-to-time need to remind themselves what a streetlamp looks like of or which way a dolphin’s tale points. But since the interbot has sort of made this application of term obsolete, […]

On Completism

June 17th, 2013

I went to school for art. So yeah, I didn’t settle into this career naturally. It was a planned set of steps designed to lift me out of post art school purgatory. Fortunately it was successful, but it also gave me a completist complex. I became obsessed with learning every aspect of web production. “How […]

Mmmmyello world!

June 11th, 2013

I’ve recently been conquered by the embarrassment of letting my personal web presence fall into shambles. Lucky you! You are witnessing the awkward growing pains of a under-utilized and professionally frustrated creative-type! Some things I plan to record in the next few months: My compulsive acquisition of obscure art objects and ephemera Half baked musings […]
