What's New?

  • The Art of the Business Card

    A few days ago I met with a new client in need of help updating her logo and business cards. Although most of what I do is web work, I've been doing graphic design since 1997 and I still really enjoy it. Print work can be  wonderfully easy compared to coding (although not always!) and it keeps my design chops in shape.

  • Because Breast Cancer is Scary

    Pixel Lava supports breast cancer research

    I've vaguely wondered why October is Breast Cancer Awareness month but I think it's simply because breast cancer is scary. In 2009 I discovered a lump and subsequently had 4 lumpectomies and did 5 years on Tamoxifen. I am grateful to the high-res imaging at Moore's Cancer Center which found the issue and the specialists who aggressively treated it. I'll never forget my first needle biopsy with Dr. Blickenstaff - a pioneer in that technique - who offered both professionalism and a hilariously dry sense of humor. While it was scary, I feel blessed to have had the access and ability to fulfill the recommended treatment regimen - which came directly out of advances that have been made in breast cancer research. I often think of my dear friend Debi who's life was ended far too soon because of breast cancer, along with the many women I know who have fought it. If there's any way that you can financially support research or patient care programs, a great organization to donate to is the Susan G. Komen Foundation.

  • Twitter's new profile layout = Love+Hate

    New Twitter ProfileI love Twitter's new profile template for the same reasons I liked Facebook's graphical overhaul awhile back. As a designer it gives me a gorgeous, HUGE canvas to work with in promoting ideas, products, concepts, calls to action, etc. However, I'm also shocked and amazed that Twitter has so brazenly emulated Facebook. Shocked I say! Really Twitter, you couldn't come up with something better? Read more and download a free PSD template.
