Signing off

Just handled my check-list so that I don’t forget anything for our trip. I am quite excited to leave everything behind for a relaxing holiday. An excellent time to recharge our batteries and sparkle some new creativity. Exciting times are ahead with cool news when we are back. So enjoy your Summer time. Next sign of life will be from Cyprus with some pictures if the wireless access don’t suck :-)

Update: Arrived safely and the filght went really well. The hotel looks superb so far ;-) Time for the pool now :-p

In the past we already talked about the fact that the decoration of your office has a crucial part in creating the right kind of atmosphere for inspiration.

Too much money to burn… what to do?

11 comments 2005 at 02.01 am posted by Veerle Pieters

With the holiday season in full swing what do you think the super rich do with their money. Some have a private jet but others love a more luxurious form of transport. They all arrived in Ibiza port with a cruise liner called “The World”. This boat consists of luxury apartments that cost somewhere between € 2.5 and € 8.6 Million and have up to 6 bathrooms and bedrooms.

Never did a guest post before but that was until I received this from a Dutch friend. Text and picture is from Taco Meeuwsen. Hope this one will put a smile on your face ;-)

Stroke Options in Illustrator CS2

One of the new features in Adobe Illustrator CS2 that I like a lot are the Stroke Options. It is now (finally) possible to choose the aligning of a stroke. It’ll make life much easier for sure ;-)

Digital Asset Management II: Meet Catalog!

7 comments 2005 at 01.01 am posted by Veerle Pieters

Last year in December we talked about Digital Asset Management tools and none of all the tested apps were really perfect. The best one was Portfolio from Extensis but that tool is more suited for photographers or image file formats. It is not created to be an archive tool for DVD or CD’s that contain a wide range of different formats.

A behind the scenes look of a new media project

Director has always been a bit of a low profile kid of Macromedia and now with Adobe buying Macromedia its future isn’t secure. Some even think that Director (the product that shaped Macromedia) is a possible candidate to get axed. But here at Duoh! we still are using it. And why not, it is the best tool for producing media rich CD-ROMS.

Everybody’s Free (good advice and a tip for the Summer)

22 comments 2005 at 03.13 am posted by Veerle Pieters

Ladies and gentlemen of the class of ‘97:

Wear sunscreen.

If I could offer you only one tip for the future, sunscreen would be it. The long-term benefits of sunscreen have been proved by scientists, whereas the rest of my advice has no basis more reliable than my own meandering experience. I will dispense this advice now.
