Emirates Economy Review

Emirates Economy Review

As you may have seen on my Instagram, I was in Dubai the beginning of this month. It was my first time traveling to the Middle East, as well as my first time flying Emirates.

Dubai Architecture is Definitely ‘To Die For’

Dubai Architecture is Definitely ‘To Die For’

Before visiting the United Arab Emirates, I had seen pictures of the architecture and was blow away. When you boast the tallest building in the world you have a lot to live up to. When you see the Burj Khalifa in pictures it looks so impressive, but how would it stand up in person? Leaving the airport, I caught a glimpse of the glistening tower. And to be honest, I wasn’t that impressed. It was just another building standing next…

The following is a tale from our guest writer, Yvette. Just a normal night after work. People are rushing to catch their trains, buses or whatever their mode of transport to get home.

The Paint App- A Love and Hate Story

The Paint App- A Love and Hate Story

After taking a few Graphic Design classes you learn to use Adobe programs like Photoshop and Illustrator. Soon you become aware of how much power these programs have. I learned on Adobe CS 2, which was when dinosaurs roamed the earth…  It feels as though you need to use the best, and that you need the programs that can give you the most flexibility. You begin to forget about a little app called Paint. It’s come with PCs for decades…

Planning a Trip

Planning a Trip

It always feels amazing to step out of our day-to-day lives and live like someone else for a few days. It can be a short trip to a neighboring town.

Mac vs. PC – A Graphic Designers Perspective

Mac vs. PC – A Graphic Designers Perspective

This debate has been going on for decades. Really, I don’t think it will ever end. So many people starting off in the design field want to know which to choose, a PC or a Mac. The following is my opinion, as a Graphic Designer. Honestly, I can say that I am writing this post on a PC (HP to be exact).
