Here’s an idea that I thought might be a useful addition to Edit Flow especially once we add in User Group functionality. The main premise is to have a full-out User Directory accessible by logged in users that provides easy access to contact information for other users on the site. Would probably only be useful for larger groups using WordPress, but I’d imagine would still come in handy for newsrooms and such.
A couple of fun promotional pieces I made for CupcakeCamp KW. Enjoy. (Oh, and if you’re from the Kitchener-Waterloo region, or nearby — yes, that includes you Toronto — there’s no reason for you NOT to be there at CupcakeCamp KW, which is happening September 19. Sign up, okay? It’ll be delicious, I promise!)
This is an assignment done recently for class (ENGL 408C: The Rhetoric of Digital Design). The goal was to “Discuss the design of an online newspaper … Combine the terminology of newspaper design with the observations of social semiotics.” I chose theglobeandmail.com mostly because they recently did a redesign ‚Äî it got mixed reviews (exhibit A, exhibit B, exhibit C, Google the rest yourself!) and from an aesthetic standpoint, I’m not the biggest fan either ‚Äî which gave me quite a bit to talk about.
I’ll warn you that it’s not the best and/or most invigorating piece of analysis in the world; many of my points are either rushed and/or exaggerated and/or unnecessary. It’s not very thorough either; I only touch on various aspects of the site and ignores lots. Plus, it’s an analysis from a social semiotic standpoint which is not the most exciting thing in the world. Simply put, you should probably just pass on reading this. But, I figured I’d throw it on here anyway since some of the points I make are valid and/or interesting.
Cover design I did for Imprint this week. This will sadly be my last.
Cover design for the week for Imprint. And as an added bonus, a snapshot of the Distractions (Puzzle/Fun/etc.) page.
Cover design for the week for Imprint. I had fun with the bus. My favourite bit is the bus.
