stand out

stand out from the crowd with a custom favicon

I have so many blog-world friends using Blogger that when I open all of their blogs in tabs (guilty, I usually have no less than 50 tabs open) they all start to look the same. I would love to see more people taking advantage of custom favicons in Blogger.

As a favor to other chronic tabbers, I am offering a new favicon update service.

project thirty three

project thirty three

The owner of Jive Time Records in Seattle has been collecting geometric album covers and posting them at Project Thirty Three. The end result is an inspiring array of rectangles, circles, dots, squares and triangles that remind us what we can accomplish with a few simple shapes. You won't see gradients or 3D effects on these posts, just bold and beautiful shapes.
