What I Did on My DesignGeek Vacation

Oh yes, Virginia, DesignGeek is back from hiatus … woo-hoo!

New Lynda.com Videos

Okay, so since I had spent so much time learning the ins and outs of InDesign CS4 and InCopy CS4, why not do some new tutorial videos for lynda.com? I had nothing but time, right? So I did two titles, and each one took up about a solid month of my time (prepping sample files, outlines, testing, and then traveling to Lynda.com in Ventura, California to do the actual recording). But I'm really happy with how they came out.

CreativePro.com "HerGeekness" Column

You might recall that early this year I started a monthly column on creativepro.com called "HerGeekness Says." I've struggled to maintain that monthly committment, and succeeded … more or less. Okay, less. Like DesignGeek, it was an occasional unfortunate victim of my overbooked schedule.

Still, I was able to post some quite useful articles, I think; covering Acrobat, Photoshop, InDesign, Illustrator, video, print, and more. You can access links to them all on my author's page on their site:

InDesignSecrets.com

This fun little blog that David Blatner and I started as a sideline venture a couple years ago has turned into a monster, but in a very good way. We're getting an incredible number of visits (over 10,000 unique visits a day), and have had to upgrade our server twice in rapid succession this summer because we went over bandwidth. The companion podcast is now up to episode 93 … I'm amazed that we're still able to find Obscure InDesign Features of the Week-eek-eek (echo effect) to close out each episode.more >

Web-based Training and Seminars

The training side of Seneca Design & Training has been as busy as ever, even in the midst of all these projects. It's only due to the efforts of Sherri "Ms. Wonderful" Austin, Seneca's Training Coordinator, and our top-flight crew of Associate Geek trainers, that we've been able to keep up; and I've been able to complete at least some of the projects I've been talking about.
