• A Little Poll

    / Comments (8)

    We’ve got a lot of ongoing columns and what-not on our site every week. What do you think of them? Namely, the movie reviews, concert recommendations, the Tuesday rants, the Wednesday polls and the Friday beer reviews. Keep ‘em? Scrap ‘em? Got any other good ideas we could get cookin’?

  • The Spring Lantern Via Liquid inc.

    / Comments (0)

    Liquid inc sent us this piece some time ago and we’d like to share it with you now.

    From the crew over there:

    Liquid inc’s tagline, Giving Ideas Shape, has always been at the heart of what we do. This spring was an opportunity for us to continue the lantern campaign we began last holiday season. The spring lantern referenced the annual occurrence of the bioluminescent Firefly Squid, joining together to form a brilliant blue light to express our ability to amaze, inspire and continually provide creative solutions. It is only through a collaboration that this is possible and the lantern exhibits how we too can come together to create amazing experiences – ones less expected and unique.

    The copy reads:

    Every spring the bioluminescent Firefly Squid {watasenia scintillans} of the Pacific coalesce at the ocean’s surface along the eastern coast of Japan. The brilliant bluish-white light emitted by the millions of squid ignites the ocean in a spectacular display that amazes and inspires onlookers. This spring let’s come together and do the same. Amaze and inspire.

    Sweet self-promo.

  • Hire This Guy: Eric Tobias—Production Artist Extraordinaire

    / Comments (0)

    Eric Tobias knows his shiznit when it comes to print production. You can see it in his work, some of which is displayed below. He earned his chops actually running Heidelberg Quickmaster digital presses for almost three years before transitioning into pre-press. He’s been doing that for the last seven years, the last two on-staff at Communiqué. He’s highly proficient with CS3 (Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign and Acrobat) and Quark.

    Ultimately Eric is looking for a full time position, but if all you have is freelance to offer right now, contact him and get him working to make your final work shine. You can contact him at etobias [at] earthlink [dot] net. Let’s keep this cat busy.
