Old Spice


This advertising campaign is one of the best I have seen in the last few years. I am not sure if it has helped sales but, it is pretty darn funny. I always smile when I see this video. Check out the old spice site for more wacky fun.

Thanks Old Spice

dafont.com



One of my favorite sites for fonts is dafont.com. There are always new fonts and and most of them are free. I love to look for unusual or handwriting fonts. It is hard to find a good handwritten fonts that don't look too goofy. There are also themes such as Mexican (above), Russian, Chinese, to name a few. There is a wide variety of fonts there is and that there are new fonts all the time.

Challenges of Social Media


I have recently had to modify this logo so it would look and fit better on a Facebook fanpage. Facebook can be an important part of getting the news about your business and organization out there. In the old days, not so long ago, when you designed a logo you had to worry how it looked on stationary, maybe a t-shirt or mug. You also had to design a logo so it looked good in black and white. Now social media is one more thing to consider. It will be an interesting challenge in the future.
