January 2009 Review

This month, I have decided to do something a little different with the Monthly Review Article.  Instead of reviewing everything that I’ve done on this site over the last month, I decided instead, to pass on some news and information about what I’m doing to help improve this website as well as what I’m doing on other sites besides this one.

Colorburned Identity & Branding

If you’ve been following me on Twitter or Flickr you’ve probably noticed that I’ve been spending the last couple of months working on and off on a new identity for this website.  A while back I even posted an image of one of the designs in a monthly review.  It’s taken a while but I’ve finally settled on a new logo design.  In addition, I also took some headshots for a big and exciting project that I am working on.  The photo is by Jacob Zimmer.  I am hoping that these items combine to really improve my branding and identity.  Also keep an eye out for a new website design to be launched within the next few months.  Thanks again for your support of this website.  Comments are welcomed!

2008: A Year in Review

In 2008, this website celebrated a number of exciting milestones.  In May, I officially launched this site as a means to display my personal portfolio to prospective employers.  At the time, I had just lost my job and I was looking to start fresh in a new design job somewhere.  As time went on, the focus of this site changed from a means to showcase my portfolio to a platform to share my opinions and design resources with other designers.  Since then, I’ve published some really great articles, freebies and tutorials but since this site is relatively new I decided to review some of my favorite posts just in case some of you guys missed them.  Thanks again and I hope everyone has a wonderful New Year!

Best of Colorburned – December 2008 Reviewed

As you guys know, each month I post a review of all the things that I’ve been up to on this site.  December was another great month, I was able to get a lot of things done in what seemed to be a very short amount of time; especially with the Holidays coming at the end.  This month I was able to post quite a few articles, tutorials, freebies and of course contests in addition to some other exciting projects that I am working on.  So, if you missed anything because of the holidays, please feel free to review some of the things I’ve been up to this month.
