New Blog Post: I have a pet peeve folks. Including your logo in the signature of your emails is bad branding IMHO.

New Blog post. Sorry for the Manning reference. Go Pats.
Designers either relate to their brand creations like a father or like a sperm donor. Why a designer's sustained presence helps in the development of growing brands.

One of my most recent web sites, the Bahston Film Critic, is being featured at Media Queries, which highlights responsive design: http://mediaqueri.es/bfc/ Log in with Twitter and heart it!

For my non webby peeps, responsive design means it was built to adapt to various browser widths and thus will work on your mobile device without all the pinching and zooming. Try it : http://bahstonfilmcritic.com/.

Here are a few iphone photos from this past summer of the community garden at The Highlands, a retirement community in Topsham Maine where my wife's grandparents live. The raised plots make for easier access and it also insures the soil thaws earlier in the season. Note the garden hose.

I like 'Blue Sky' as a moniker for you. This is more of an amalgam of thoughts from numerous experiences. Folks who would have insisted you go with 'AAA Frames'.
