I know we have all thought of it, of how great it would be for CS5 to be available for the iPad.  We have already seen what Wacom did with their tablets so why not Apple? Im guessing it could either be that these programs are just too strong for the iPad, or its actually in the works and they are trying to milk it with the first and second gen iPad.

To be honest, Im not sure I would enjoy using a touch screen to design stuff. After a while it would get tiring and it seems that the risk of arthritis and carpal tunnel heighten, no? Have you ever listened to how many times you click your mouse when you are designing something? I swear we go at 80 clicks per minute. Thats a lot of wear and tear on your hand. LOL

It would extremely  be convenient for those minor touch ups that you need to do before sending it off to the client.

Im sure some of you have those clients that call you outta no where and ask to “just center my logo a little bit more”, and you are no where near your desktop and powering up your laptop takes too long. If you had the iPad just turn it on boom boom boom, send and done. (Yes, that fast lol!!)

I have a friend that works for apple development, and word has it that Apple is working on an Ipad Pro. I got no official specs on it but this may be our answer. We will see. Apparently it wont be out till Fall 2012.

So I guess for now we can just sit and wait and let technology run its course.

Homeless Designer…

This goes out to all you graphics designers, illustrators, and painters out there.

There’s this rumor going around that designers come a dime a dozen. And I’ve actually heard that slip out of previous people Ive worked for.

Now here’s our struggle. People seem to believe that what we do is so easy and that it takes no time to finish. What people dont understand is that we have gone through schooling (some of us not), and have lost years of sleep to become this good in order to complete a job in no time. And not to mention develop a sharp sense of imagination so we can mentally put together your design.

Im just gonna go on a small rant and say that I cannot stand when people tell you how much they will pay you for a contract and don’t even ask you if its fair.

Ive been in the game for 9 years and if a client wants to pay me 25$ for a logo, I hand them a stick man.

Side note: Professional Graphic Designer should be paid minimum 30$/hour. MINIMUM. And when I say professional, I mean Professional. Not those people that learned designing of YOUTUBE.  Yall give us a bad name, so go back to the etch a sketch and just stop it!

Now this shirt I have created for all you freelance, or full time 9-5 designers who get underpaid. You know you deserve more. It seems that your artwork is only worth millions once you are dead.

Production for this shirt is now happening and will be available next week. For pre-orders please email me or you can click on the pay pal link which will be available in the link above “Limited Edition”
