dmanderson.me 1.0 almost ready to launch


Finally, a professional website is in the works and almost near completion! This year has proven to be a fun-packed adventure in terms of moving things forward with my professional design career. Above is an instagram shot of the site as it is in development. Hosted by Behance, their ProSite service and the site production have been easy, professional looking, and quite fun.

Please, check out my new personal website @ dmanderson.me and share your thoughts and feedback.

[POLL] iPads and Your Creative Process


Hello everyone,

I am currently developing a story for this blog in regards to iPads and their new role in the digital creative age. I have found in my personal experience that they have so many ways to contribute to the creative process. This post, however, is about you. I want to find out if you use an iPad in your creative process and if you do, how do you use it? Sketching? Note-taking? A resource for ideas? Or better yet, do you feel they disrupt the creative process?

Below is a one-question poll – please check make a selection. You are here, after all. Also, I encourage you to post comments and lets get a discussion going. Please share your thoughts and experiences.

SO YOU KNOW: I will be taking your feedback here, as well as other sources, and use them as part of an an article that is currently in development. If you have any questions or objections, please email me at: dma.evokedesign@gmail.com.

QUESTION: Do you still make concept sketches?


Is thumbnailing and concept sketching still a part of your creative process? Throughout my experience both professionally and as a student, I have seen many newer students of the industry draw less and seemingly push the same idea across the computer screen until it becomes more of what they want. I personally value the process of the thumb nailing and conceptualizing on paper for the fact I feel it pushes us to explore more ways we can execute an idea far more efficiently than on the computer. I have met some professors that demand it while I have met many professionals that skip it.

I Don’t Feel Creative Today


So lately I have not been feeling creative. Why? Well, I recently was injured on my leg and it turned into a severe infection. Literally. Overnight. Due to multiple procedures, medication, and the general stress of the process I have felt zapped of energy. I have several articles in development and hope to get them out on a scheduled release soon. Please have patience.

In the mean time, I hope you enjoy a quick image I threw together. It helped me get through the day.
