The Sonnet Project

The Sonnet Project is an experiment in presenting Shakespeare's sonnets within new environments across England.

For example, 94 sonnets took to the skies of London fastened to balloons. They drifted, carried on the wind until reaching their final resting places across the world. Other ideas have been used and it's a nice art piece.
Let just hope someone finds them.

"Brownie, you're doing a heck of a job."

As the site says. 'The purpose of any art is to invoke a response'. To love or hate the work you can't help but click through them. French Humor can be so funny.

Macromedia Studio 8, but where's Freehand?

With the latest releases of Dreamweaver, Flash and Fireworks, Studio 8 offers web designers and developers a new level of expressiveness, BUT WITHOUT FREEHAND.
As many graphic designers know, the world of design software has recently been turned on it's head with the merger of Adobe and Macromedia. Since the merger many designers have waited to see what would arise from this.

Would Dreamweaver be merged with GoLive?
Would Freehand disappear in place of illustrator?

It seems that the last question had some truth. With the release of Macromedia Studio 8 we see the demise of Freehand. To put salt in our wounds the site doesn't even mention it's absence.

Freehand remains a good piece of design software for anyone designing websites, print media and for the creation of freehand vector drawings. It would be a great loss to the software market if this story continues to leave us absent of a reason for leaving out Freehand.

Who knows? Maybe Freehand will be sold to another distributor. Fingers crossed.
