A ROUGH TIME for printers

I work full time as a graphic designer, mostly doing print pieces. We all know the economy isn’t great right now and it affects quite a bit of things. I love that Because Studio has managed to find the humor in a situation i see on a daily basis. A lot of clients don’t have the money right now to spend on a 5 color pantone job with letter-pressed envelopes and die-cuts. These little prints say everything that I have been feeling. Pieces can still be beautiful even when you don’t have a lot of money to throw at a job.

HUE are you

I found this neat little color puzzle for those of you who are into color theory. The idea is to arrange the tiles in order of their hues. Don’t worry you just do it line by line and the first square and the last square are stationary so you just have to fill in the middle. I scored a 12! I don’t thing my colorblind boyfriend stands a chance at beating me on this puzzle. How did you do? ( My Tip: squint your eyes )
