    Someone I know was talking about "doing a booklet in powerpoint" today.... I'm sorry RKK, maybe you can stick her in your 'restricted' folder - then all her posts will be.... contained.

    Hmm. I brought back the "I"s while adding a camera as you mentioned, though I do agree about the gear point. At least this shouldn't resemble a telescope as much. Plus a better favicon.

    The sans serif is really close to Bliss Bold and the italics is really close to Century Book Italic. Both not exact though.

    I like the general design aesthetic but I'm not 100% sure it suits a charity for seniors. It looks more like a company (science, pharma or tech) for younger people.

    Also, yellow text on light...

    Does anyone know of similar sites to http://www.colourlovers.com/ ? The website is down for the next few weeks due to site upgrades.

    This site was awesome! It provdied colour palets varying anywhere from 3-7+ colours in each.

    I am stuck for some new palets and ideas. I did find some cool resources on the Pantone website.... Pantone Fall 2006 Colours


    Does anyone have a secret stash that they are willing to share?

    if you want a good book, i highly suggest "Color Index" by Krausse, it will save lives, and eyes

No government by free opinion, no longer a government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a government by the opinion and duress of small groups of men.’ - Woodrow Wilson

      I second this! It's a great resource.

      Also, here's a simple technique I use in Photoshop that works well for me when considering color palettes.

      Open an image that you feel has some pretty nice colors going on, and choose FILTER - 'Pixelate' - 'Crystalize'. Then choose a cell size... the smaller you go, generally, the more colors you'll have to choose from. Typically, somewhere in the middle is good.

      Hope it helps!
