It’s good to be back. After taking a few weeks off to finish up the new design and deal with end of the year school stuff, such as exams, Friday Focus is now back with issue number 34. Lets get going…
Sites of the Week
Starting it off this week is the portfolio of Drew Wilson, a dark and simple portfolio / blog design. You’ll also see that it is powered by Firebolt, his own cms system, which I’m very excited to learn more about.
Next up is Erratic Wisdom. Earthly tones give way to a super clean site, with a layout that I’m really enjoying. There is some excellent content to go along with this great design, so be sure to check it out.
Wrapping up this week is a similar resource to Devlounge, called Youtilize. Ran by Dimitry, Youtilize is a collection of fresh publications on many of the same topics talked about around here, such as design, entrepreneurship, etc.
Personal favorites from the most dug this past week…
Design: The History of Photoshop
Yes, Photoshop has come a very long way since its early beginnings. This brief articles talks about some of them, and I also came across a link that features screenshots of Photoshop 1.0!
Programming: If Architects had to work like Developers
A hilarious post poking fun at the type of clients many of us have had to deal with – ones that paint such a vague picture of what they are looking for, yet complain when they see what we have come up with.
Reminder: Get back to us about our design!
What are your thoughts on the new design? What still needs work, what do you like and hate? We need your feedback for fine tuning that will be taking place throughout the summer. Please let us know what you think in the comments. Also, we are looking for your suggestions for Actionscript articles, because the category is soon to begin taking off. Feel free to throw your ideas out as us!
