BYO Print Studio

Soooo jealous! Print studio in Philadelphia. Even has its own cat! (via Printeresting)

Still, we have a cool printmaking studio at Hutt Art. We just need a cat.

Adobe CS6

“Regarding InDesign, it’s one of the less-than-sexy features of CS6, so no one talks about it, but CS6 looks at your monitor’s resolution and uses it. In CS6 when you view your artwork at 100%, it’s actually 100%. Hold a ruler up to the screen — you’ll see.”

Build it & they will come?

Not quite that easy.

Everyone wants to be on page 1 of Google. If it was easy -- everyone would be there.
SEO (Search Engine Optimisation) requires expertise, time, commitment (ongoing) and doesn't come cheap. Therefore, once you attract visitors to your site, it makes sense to make the most of those visits.

Read on to see what SEO Book has to say about turning traffic into visitors . . .

"We expend time and energy getting a site to rank a few places higher, or for a wider range of keywords, but it also pays to focus our attention on what happens after visitors arrive. If visitors arrive, but click-back because a site isn't what they expected to see, then the effort we've put into ranking is wasted". More

Workin' on a Building

It's always the way. Like a builder never gets their own house finished, I haven't sorted the Blondini Gang website since we set up biz some years ago. Needless to say, it's pretty much crap.

But the good news is a revamped site will be up in 3 . . . 2 . . . 1. . . Well soonish.

In other news, I have cool new business cards which feature the Pantone colour of the year.

"This card features the Pantone colour
of the year for 2011.
PANTONE® 18-2120 Honeysuckle
“A brave new color, for a brave new world.
Let the bold spirit of Honeysuckle infuse you, lift you and carry you through the year. It’s a color for every day — with nothing ‘everyday’ about it.”
