Study Logos …not 1000 of them in a book (though those are useful and fun too)… take a logo a day and spend an hour just looking at it. Put it aside then look at it again later. Print it in black and white and in color. Post it everywhere. Then, just sit and stare at it again. -Have more time? Take a couple... 
Found Note: Weekends... Words To Live By
Every time I find this note, I keep it on my desk for a little while… Always good advice to myself!  Read More →
Here’s something for designers… I was recently looking around for jQuery Mobile themes and really couldn’t find much. jQuery Mobile is pretty well laid out and it’s easy to work on theming. Since it’s pretty new, not a lot of people have been making templates for it yet. Some have been... 
Here’s an app idea that could be really interesting. I love cereal. I’ll be honest, I think I know more about cereal and their nutritional values than most people do. While most people spend a few minutes here and there looking at the cereal box, I really enjoy them and when there’s nothing to read,... 
Running a B&B is hard work. Working at home is one thing when you can close the door to your upstairs office at night and take time to go out for a nice dinner. In a B&B, though, you’re getting calls at all times of day (and night), and, unless you don’t have a guest one night, someone has to be... 
We’ve all been taught “Don’t stare, don’t stare!” Well, in this case, you’ll have to forget everything your mom taught you… sort of. Quite a few years ago, I was hoping to open a store in a particular mall. I was lucky enough to have a friend of the family who was a retail... 
The big trend lately is the deal sites. It seems like everyone’s trying to start a Groupon clone. Here’s why that can be a bad idea. Groupon is very established Tons of others are trying to do the same Groupon spends MILLIONS on advertising But… that doesn’t mean you can’t be a part... 
You’ll see me say it a lot… I strongly believe in “work smarter, not harder.” Is there an easier, better way to do something? One case where this came to mind is a cleaning company. Cleaners often spend as much if not more time travelling to a client’s location (generally unpaid) than... 

Flower Emergency App

// Dec 8th, 2011
Here’s an interesting idea. You would make arrangements with a flower shop (preferably one that offers delivery around the world with a short lead time). When the person first downloads the app, you would arrange for them to set up a method of payment. Then, anytime they need flowers, they can quickly place... 
A client recently sent a .pages file and I always prefer to find a way if possible to open the file without having to ask the client to resend in another format. Thanks to the folks who posted here, I found an EXTREMELY easy solution. Simply save the file to your hard drive, then rename it by changing the extension...
