In a discussion of portfolio contents a reader asked about using client-rejected material in their portfolio. Two things you need to decide: 1) what does your contract say and 2) is it good work. http://desktoppub.about.com/od/portfolios/fl/Including-Unused-Designs-or-Concepts-in-Your-Portfolio.htm

Let's start the year off with a little pinkish-purple. Or, actually Radiant Orchid. Here's how to use the PANTONE Color of the Year for 2014 in your design projects: http://desktoppub.about.com/od/pantone/fl/Use-the-Color-Radiant-Orchid-in-Graphic-Design.htm   And, in my first newsletter of the year I took a look back at 12 lessons from 2013 with suggestions on applying those topics to 2014.  http://specials.about.com/service/newsletters/desktoppub/2f52c00f130001b9aa019d35.htm  Happy New Year Everyone.

Over on Facebook, VeerIdeas is running this fun little contest involving Photoshopping a bunch of "bad stock photos." (https://www.facebook.com/VeerIdeas) I decided to play along and stayed up way too late one evening making this monster mash. Probably won't win any awards but it was fun to do. Here ya go:
