Micah M. aka Type Micah over at A Collective has relaunched Meme Engine as a t-shirt shop. As a web designer, There Is No Page Fold caught my eye. His apt description of this meme:
In the web design world, the “fold” is a term clients often use when referring to the bottom of their browser window. It stems from printed media; many newspapers are folded before they are stacked, thereby making everything “above the fold” desirable in terms of placement. Online, however, it just doesn’t work that way. Unfortunately, many people are slow to realize this and so, a meme was born.
Embrace the scroll!
Say This, Say That recently was invited to create a cover for the Thurston County publication, “Community Values Magazine”.
The Community Values Magazine is a monthly direct mail advertising magazine featuring local discount coupons and information from quality businesses in the Olympia, Lacey & Tumwater area of Washington State.
Our designer, Micah, decided to take a nice local approach to creating this cover. He thought about certain landmarks found in the Olympia area and finally decided upon using a shot of one of Downtown Olympia’s fountains with the Capital featured in the background. Since the holidays are right around the corner, we felt it would be best to portray a sense of the holiday spirit by using the tagline “Enjoy the Season”.
This is just one example of how Say This, Say That is involved with our local community. If you have the time, you can check out the magazine in PDF format below…

Even though pixel art isn’t used much in the world of branding, I still find it to be an interesting artstyle. For those looking at getting into video game development, this is also a handy tutorial.
The Pixel Tutorial by Derek Yu
The author, Derek Yu, presents a few things that will help polish up your pixel art skills. This includes dithering, aliasing, and light sources for outlines. There are programs created specifically for pixel art, but this tutorial is mainly for users of photoshop.
Below is a time-elapse of the image used in the tutorial. It gives you a good idea in the process involved in this.
