    PNG Compression for Mac – ImageOptim

    I love working with PNG’s because they offer true alpha transparency, with the downsides being that IE6 doesnt support alpha transparency and their file size can be not so great compared to a .jpg image.

    What is it about Bad Design?

    Bad DesignReally, what is it about bad design that draws people in. I have been thinking perhaps someone needs to tell someone that they dont have what it takes and they shouldn’t be designing. How much of design is something that is inside of you. Can anyone become a designer? Would a banker be able to design? If you put a banker into a thorough design program, would he come out as a designer? I would like to think NO!
