2005 InDesign Conference is Coming Up

March 14, 2005 - 3:00am ||| 0 Comments | Add new
Last summer I attended the InDesign Conference in Boston for the first time. Wow, and I thought I knew InDesign? I came away from the three days of non-stop seminars so stuffed with InDesign tips and techniques that they were leaking out my ears.

I'll be at the 2005 InDesign Conference this summer — in San Francisco! — not just as an attendee, but also as a speaker.more >

First-Ever "Creative Suite" Conference

March 14, 2005 - 3:00am ||| 0 Comments | Add new
One month after the InDesign Conference, the same producer (http://www.barrycon.com) is mounting the first-ever independent conference devoted to the Adobe Creative Suite: Photoshop, InDesign, Illustrator, Acrobat and GoLive.

Creative Suite Conference
July 19-23, 2005; Las Vegas (baby!)

When I heard about it, I was like, D'oh! What a great idea! And then I went, "D'oh! I want to do a seminar there!" hahaha … I guess I had such a great time speaking at last year's Mac Design Conference and then the Adobe Partners in Publishing thing that I kind of got the public speaking bug. (I wish my high school speech teacher could see me now…)more >

Introducing DesignGeek Central

January 6, 2005 - 3:00am ||| 0 Comments | Add new
As most of you are aware, I didn't send out ANY DesignGeek issues in December. My apologies! But I have a good reason … I was working on something that I hope you'll find just as useful as a couple issue's worth of tips, if not more so. And I just didn't have time to do both.

It's a project that I actually started back in July 2004; and I couldn't see going into the new year without finishing it. I took down the old "Tips, Pubs and Downloads" section of my web site and installed a shiny, new "DesignGeek Central" section in its place.

I think I was inspired by the HGTV show "Clean Sweep." ;-)

Now, instead of what you used to find in that awkwardly-named section — an unorganized collection of random tips, recommended mailing lists, and links to old plug-ins — you'll find a series of design software resource pages and the new home for this e-zine. more >
