Nashville, TN… Land of Country?

I’m heading to Nashville, TN tomorrow evening and I’ve never been. I’m trying to compile a last-minute list of 5 things I must do while I’m there. A must is good food. I’m looking for a great BBQ joint, which I think is more of Memphis’ deal, but I’m open to seeing what other cities do. Anyone have some tips they want to share?

Simple Logo Design Fix!! It’s called “Make My Logo Bigger Cream”

Make my logo bigger cream. Say what?

The funniest website I’ve seen in a while talks about logo design and how you can make it bigger with a simple solution: cream. It also talks about white space spray eliminator.

Deep down… it’s a design firm behind the madness.

Subliminal Messaging in Cascadian Farm Packaging

What an intriguing idea Cascadian Farm had. Thanks to bloggers like Bread & Honey, a secret in their packaging was discovered. If you notice underneath the Cascadian Farm text, you’ll see green grass and hills. Hidden in these hills are two faces!

See for yourself:

Now that the secret’s out, looks like the package redesign won’t include the faces anymore. Sad… I kinda liked it.

Web Design: K E R N I N G

Didn’t realize how much I fail to overlook the kerning of my words. For those of you who don’t know, kerning is letter spacing within a word(s). A great site that made me aware of my web design blunder is: http://www.maxkerning.com/. Note to self: must pay attention to detail.

Passive-Aggressive Notes

Passiveagressivenotes.com might just be my new favorite website. It’s a website dedicated to people who get their point across in a rather well, passive-aggressive way. Example:

Ever leave notes around the house? Share ’em with the World!

Came across this cute website today. It’s called Spousenotes.com, which is a place for spouses to upload notes left by their significant other.

Website redesign

Desperately trying to get myself to design a comp and code my new website. My current one, while it’s better than my first one, it is pretty drab and boring. I think a personal website that showcases who you are should include:

  • Social networking
  • News feed (if you’re going to be religious about updating, otherwise forget it)
  • Short blurb about you
  • Area of expertise
  • Resources/links/blogroll
  • Portfolio (if you’re a designer or in a different field that would require one)
