Daily Design. New personal site, coming soon
Hello folks, just letting you know that I have relaunched my personal site. I got rid of all that flash and made a simple one page site that will be easier to maintain, update and view. If you are at all curious you can check it out right here.http://www.anthonywartinger.com
In Living Color
Hey web world, long time no blog, sorry about that but I’ve been super duper busy at Dayton web design studio Atomic Interactive (see 2+ month old blog below). I just wanted to post a quick blog about my two favorite color resources, both found absolutely free on the web.
The first of which is an old classic that I’m sure you’ve heard of, Kuler. This Adobe supported tool if full of color schemes and themes uploaded by adobe users. Simply type in a word, color or emotion that matches the feel of your print/web design project. For example, the theme below is what I received when I typed in octopus, not bad.
The second is a newly discovered tool called Color Scheme Designer. This in-depth color tool will give you multiple complementary pigments to whichever color you choose. CSD has a plethora of options and different presets that make this tool a must bookmark.
In other news, all you rocking web designers out there should be excited for the new (and free!) sitemap generator web app, Slick Plan, developed by Atomic Interactive and launching later this month. Also check out some of my logos on my Logo Pond profile. Thanks everyone, talk to you soon.
The End is Nigh
So here it is, after many months of hard work I am officially done at the school of advertising art (saacollege.com), at very least with my portfolio. Granted I still have a few weeks of seminars and I have to technically graduate, I still feel like this chapter of my life is coming to a close. So what’s next? Hopefully I’ll get a good design job and I won’t screw anything up…I honestly don’t know what to expect. I just hope that wherever this crazy journey goes next I’ll have a moderate amount of success and massive amount of enjoyment.
U! Creative founder Ron Campbell (http://twitter.com/ron_campbell) spoke this past weekend to the honors graduates of saa and his message kind of stuck with me. It’s impossible to predict where life will takes you, the only thing you can do is to make decisions that will inevitably make your life more gratifying…My only hope is that when those decisions present themselves, I make the right one.
On a different note I’m going to do some self-promotion. My website is officially launched and I encourage all two of you reading this blog to check it out. Feel free to look at my art and download my resume/portfolio.
