August Update.

Wow this blog is turning into a monthly update blog. Sorry, but that is not going to happen ! It sure looks like it though. Sorry.

So things have been busy around here. I took a couple more hours at my part time job. I’ve been working on some other projects as well, and learning a bit about bitcoin. I’m going to start posting here a lot more though as I work, and explain some of the different things that I do. That is what this blog was supposed to be about.

So from now on, each day , if I did something somewhat interesting and I usually do on most days.  I’ll be taking a few minutes to post here. This way no matter what, I should get at least a few posts a week posted here!

Expect info on photography, which will probably be links from my photography blog, graphic design tips, and software tips.

Thanks for following and sorry for the sparse content lately.

July Update

Things have been really busy around here. I need to start posting to this blog more. That’s obvious. I really plan to as well. I’m going to be adding a lot of links to tutorials and videos and some of my own stuff as well. Things have been so busy here, I just haven’t had the time to blog. That changes this month.

So what’s new with New Aeon Design ? I’m working on some design offers for websites. I started creating some zazzle products and a zazzle store and I’ve been working really hard on some design templates for sale. Believe me, this has been keeping me real busy.

This month I plan on linking all the above mentioned stuff into the blog, and website. I’ll be posting links, adding some tutorials (ya, it’s been awhile, and I’m really trying), and also showing off some of my latest creations and design offers. Thanks for being patient while and thanks for following the blog.

June News.

June has arrived marking the end of spring and the beginning of summer. I can’t believe how fast May flew by. The month blew by so quickly I really didn’t even get a chance to post to this blog. BAD BLOGGER ! I’m a bit disappointed in myself.

welcome june summer arrives.

Welcome June. Created in Gimp 2.8. Image found on morguefile.com. Thank God summer is finally here !

I started a learn spanish blog as a side project and I was working on it so much that I didn’t realize how fast the time was going by last month. http://www.mi-palabra-del-dia.com/.

With that said I’m going to be posting here a lot more. Humm, have I said this before. I think so. O.K. seriously, I’m going to be adding content from some of my other blogs, posting youtube videos from some people I follow on youtube, and yes, I’m going to try and add some of my own original content as time permits.

Expect information on CSS , HTML, web design, graphics work, lots of stuff on Gimp and Inkscape, and I’ve been doing a lot of stuff with fonts so expect some font links and more.

Thanks for reading, have a happy and safe summer, and talk to ya all soon !

May News Letter

Like the spring weather here in Western New York, I’m getting a late start on the May news letter and monthly update. Things have been real busy around here, and I’ve started building a portfolio, and cleaning up some of my blogs and designs.

First things first, I’d love to explain the current theme of the blog. I haven’t gone soft, I’m simply trying to bust out of my comfort zone. Being a d00d many of my designs have a darker theme, and also a more manly feel to them. I thought for spring I would try to force myself out of my comfort zone and create something with a softer more feminine feel to it. Thus we have pinkish purple flowers, with a floral theme. I may have went a bit overboard but it’s my first attempt at this type of designing. I’m going to be changing it up in June with a more summery theme that I haven’t really decided on yet. However, for the next several months I am going to be focusing on getting out of the comfort zone.

I’ve been adding blogs to my portfolio. Currently, I’m maintaining 4 on Blogger, 2 using WordPress, and I’ve been playing around on Tumblr. I don’t really know what to think about Tumblr, but with Yahoo purchasing the company earlier this year I think it’s going to be an up and coming platform in the future. For that reason I’ve been giving it a little bit more attention than I believe it really deserves. Currently here’s what my blogging portfolio looks like. If your bored and any of these topics interest you check em out.

Tumblr Blogs

Because Tumblr is a really different type of blogging service, I’ve been using it to mirror some of my current blogs. I try to post different information but also link the post from my other blogs to it. This has proven very effective in traffic generation. I think Tumblr really falls somewhere between social networking, or maybe social blogging. It’s a very different platform then the other services available. For example, users really can’t comment, only share posts. I’m going to be doing some more posts about blogging this month. I’ll be sure to add more information on Tumblr. For now here are the blog mirrors.

New Aeon Design – Sort of a mirror to this blog.
Mi Palabra Del Dia – Mirror to my learn Spanish blog on Blogger.

Staying with the busting out of my comfort zone theme. I tried my hand at a retro redesign. This was a really fun project for a customers news letter. I learned a lot with the design, and on my next attempt I’ll be changing more than a couple things, but I had fun designing it and the customer was happy.
Fun Retro Redesign for Helene's Mostly Jewelry.
The concept is to take some old public domain ad stock and recreate the design. I found the above image, cleaned it up a bit, added some text with a basic font to maintain the old style theme. I went with a bold sans-serif and some classic script for the business name. In the future I’d like to maybe add an additional font and make the business name more pronounced. The customer however loved it and that’s really all that matters.

So, that’s what I’ve been working on over here at New Aeon Design. This month, expect some posts about blogging and blog design. I plan to change up a bunch of stuff on the Blogger blogs, and I’d also like to talk a little about WordPress. You can also look forward to some social networking posts, tips, tricks, and what I’ve discovered.

With that said, thanks for checking out my blog portfolio, thanks for reading, and thanks to everyone following members, rss, Tumblr, Twitter, Facebook (Just started nobody following yet, you could be the first !), Pinterest, and G+. Feel free to comment and ttys ! SEE YA !

Created A New Bitcoin Blog

As some of you have probably noticed, I recently took an interest in Bitcoin. I was looking for an alternative form of payment for the website and thought I would give it a try. I’ve learned a lot and have become fascinated by crypto currency. The good news is if your not into Bitcoin, I probably wont be posting about it here anymore. I’m sure there will be a mention from time to time but for the most part I will only be posting about the crypto currency here. If your into Bitcoin and bitcoin related things check it out !
