Are you curious how the brand of a large suite of complementary products is developed? It's more interesting than you might think. Adobe describes the decisions
that went into the new icons, splash screens, and other brand elements of Creative Suite 6.

Everyone needs more Kuler.
There a lot
of color pickers out there...and I generally like all of them...but Kuler takes things a step further by making a community
of color and color themes. Of course it's tied with their products but that doesn't distract from the usefulness of this free online application. It is also a beautifully designed website both in form and function.

Designing With Microsoft?
Evidently this is Microsoft's attempt at competition
with 'Macrodobe', the strange, hybrid beast (lumbering?
) that is the combined Macromedia/Adobe merger. Microsoft has launched
a full suite of products taking aim at Dreamweaver, (is it better?
) Illustrator-Photoshop and Flash
. For many designers who pretend to be developers (or vica versa) Microsoft's new "Expression" will be 3 or 4 orders of magnitude less relevant than that old Corel Suite. The central issue seems to be one of credibility: Can Microsoft escape the seemingly permanent "FrontPage" stigma, not to mention even more recent
design community letdowns?

An open letter to John Warnock.
"Please consider releasing eight to twelve core fonts into the public domain. The amount of revenue lost from a small core set of fonts surely can’t have a significant impact on Adobe’s bottom line."

Hadn't seen this mentioned anywhere, but it looks like Adobe
is trying to hook designers (Web and otherwise) up with gigs. You can post a resume and an online portfolio, and get searched by location, name, or specialty. Seems kinda neat.
