Graphic Design

I’m trying to learn more about graphic design, which I am not so great at.  I have gotten some of the Sams Teach Yourself books, but it’s tough to find the self-discipline at times to do it.  I found the graphics.com site, which offers some pretty cool classes on how to do graphics and layouts.  There’s a fee, but if you’re one of those fancy people with a budget for education and stuff, why not do it? Librarians need this stuff.  Have you seen the covers of most library science text books?  Hideous.  And how much longer can we withstand newsletters in neon colors?

In other news, I’ve been trying to learn about Drupal which I think will end up being lumped into the same category as Greenstone, Linux, Delicious and Koha.  That category being the one that is “I’d like to try it, download it, learn more about it, finally implement it or become somewhat decent at understanding and using it but I’ve got shit to do and I know there are people way better at it then me, so they can have at it and help me out in a pinch”.

  1. We’re redesigning our website and I’m on a Drupal committee now. I have no less than four articles and two books to read BEFORE the meetings start. Talk about shitake to do.
