The Devil Made Me...

Walking into my office at Circle this morning, I was pleasantly surprised to find this Halloween Treat on my desk (thanks Carol!)... ;)

In case you're from another planet, it's Halloween this weekend, which means you should be extra cautious, and on the lookout for the munchkins in costume darting about the city streets, prowling zombies/vampires, and costumed party-goers on pedestrian sidewalks.

If you haven't filled your weekend schedules yet, you may be interested in checking out the Winnipeg Comic-con, on this weekend at the Winnipeg Convention Centre. I'm planning to attend at least once.

Next week, on November 4th, GDC Manitoba will be hosting their resurrected, 'Tales from the Darkside' event - which is always a 'treat'. More information about the event from GDC Manitoba, here - don't forget to register (members must login to receive the discount)!

Have yourselves a safe and Happy Halloween - cheers!

GDC Manitoba Presents - Bluesky 09...

This past weekend the GDC Manitoba Chapter held the Bluesky 09 - IN/OUT design conference (visit website). Featuring five presentations from industry leading professionals, a gala dinner and awards show held at the Manitoba Club, it was an enjoyable, action-packed, inspirational weekend for all those in full/partial attendance (IMO).

The photos I took have been uploaded to a photoset on my Flickr and added to the GDC Manitoba Flickr Group Pool, view the pics in the slideshow embedded above or on my Flickr, here - enjoy! Thanks to the all presenters, the volunteers, the Bluesky 09 Committee, the generous sponsors, and the GDC Manitoba Chapter for all their hard work - cheers!

COOL! Type Quiz: Helvetica or Arial?

Ironic Sans presents a fun little quiz for the typographically inclined - So you think you can tell Arial from Helvetica? Try it! Through 20 logos originally designed with Helvetica, redone in Arial... blasphemy? Perhaps... but, a fun challenge anyhow.

Feeling up to the challenge? Go and check it out for yourself at - enjoy!
