Today I’m taking a short break from my overview of Photoshop blending modes — but for good reason! SitePoint just published my article on Creating Vector Graphics in Illustrator and Freehand, and I’d encourage you to take a look if you’ve never attempted vector graphics before. (Illustrator and Freehand experts will find this to be pretty basic.)
Also, I was excited to see SitePoint launching a new newsletter: The SitePoint Design View, which “is a monthly newsletter covering subjects ranging from usability to page layout, graphic design software techniques, accessibility issues and all the biggest challenges confronting web designers today.” It’s right up my alley, and if you’re reading this blog, it might be up yours, too. This first issue covers some great topics, from how to create “pullquotes” using CSS, an announcement on a new SitePoint book on Flash by Steve Grosvenor, and other interesting tidbits.
(Don’t forget that you can manage your newsletter subscriptions at http://www.sitepoint.com/newsletter/)
I’ll keep this blog short, since you now have a lot of reading to do… enjoy!
