Tuesday Treasure Trove

Tuesday Treasure Trove: this week's round-up of read-worthy links.

Things of Note:

It may only be Tuesday, but it’s been a pretty productive week so far. My to-do list for the week is already a third done – woot! Most of it is house and shop stuff, but work stuff isn’t suffering either. Though there was a bit of a work disappointment. One of those situations where you get really excited about a project- it’s fun and (supposedly) creative and the client’s budget is generously decent! And then you submit your concepts and they come back saying everything was ‘too artistic’ and proceed to request the. most. basic. boring. possibilities ever. No leeway even in color scheme, as they’ve specified that, too. UGH. It’s SO disappointing when you think you’re being hired as an actual designer, whose expertise and experience will be utilized and taken into consideration, but they’re actually just hiring you as a mouse-pusher because they don’t have Illustrator. Blargh blargh blargh! < end rant >

Anyway! On to happier things. How’s your week going so far?
