The Burning Lounge

My good friend Geoff. An awsome guy and designer. Master of corporate design and cool distress/grunge style works. Geoff recently launched his blog, The Burning Lounge. It has a great mix of design talk, posts of his lastest works and free Photoshop brushes.

His Photoshop brushes are pretty cool. Making it easier for designers to create textures/backgrounds. Check out his Photoshop brushs now.

BoDo Launches!

BoDo also know as Business of Design Online, website have launched this week. It's a great resource for designers setting up shop who have searched for answers and assistance by posting questions on various forums, emailing pros for advice, reading everything on offer and googling when it's not.

Topics including: starting your own design business (online or off); marketing; dealing with clients; working with printers, photographers, copywriters and other surrounding industries; pretty much anything to help a design business grow.

Forums, books and blog postings are helping to address this issue, but from our vantage point, concentrated help was needed.

As a Creative Latitude response, the Business of Design online (BoDo) was created.

Conceived and developed by Catherine (cat) Morley, Neil (nt) Tortorella and Jeanette (jay) Wickham (the BoDo team), BoDo’s aim is to provide a focused wealth of information, tools and techniques for successfully managing and marketing a design practice.

That's right, there won't be a Photoshop tutorial in sight.

On BoDo you’ll find continuously updated resources for running a design shop, including select e-books, business forms, excellent articles and more.
