Just a heads up you After Effects users on mac. Be careful if you run the latest updates from Apple, which include a quicktime update. Just like a year ago, this update brings After Effects to its knees, leaving users like myself opening your project to the pinwheel of death. Such a death requires an actual reboot on the machines button Since I hit this problem last year, I never run updates. But today I got trigger happy and updated, ergh. Thanks Apple!
Every so often you land on one of those sites that just knock you out of your chair. Everything is Terrible does just this and just like the the title hints, it is full of nothing but terribleness! Enjoy!

We are coming back early from the Thai new year here at the Bangkok studio. Last week and today we posted a handful of new stock vector collections. A few classic themes like flourishes and frames in there, along with new topics and elements many of you might find useful.
On the topic of us being in Bangkok, some of you might have seen the news of some mad craziness going on here. Luckily our studio is in intense traffic jams the past 2 weeks, everyone in our studio was unaffected directly by any of the violence. Unfortunately for the people living here, no matter what side you support, the violence that went down this week does not help anyone here, especially the struggling local economy which survives a lot on the tourism industry. But the good news is, for now, the protesters have left and the leaders arrested for various crimes.
That being said, Thailand is Thailand and this not something really new as far as wanting the government to change, but violence is NOT typical. These violent protests were really restricted to a specific part of the city as well, an area most tourists are never in. So if you had plans to come here for travel, holiday, fun times, it is still the fun loving and good Thailand, no worries, you will be OK. I am still here typing this, so it must be ok! haha…

Lettercutting — a grand job, the grandest in the world. What could be better? If you’ve never cut letters in a good piece of stone, with hammer and chisel, you can’t know.
MyFonts interviews Eric Gill for April installment of Creative Characters feature. How lucky are we in this era of typographic design to have so much technology available to us. It’s always good to be reminded what we take for granted and to consider how that technology manifests itself in our designs. Link
