Creative Mondays 167 – 25 Years of Photoshop

“What is Creative Mondays?

Monday’s are always a drag. The start of a new week, you have to go back to that routine of going to bed early/get up early. If (like me) you have to commute then you prepare for that long journey into work and that long journey back for the first time after a nice two day break.

So to kick off those lousy Mondays, I’m going to get my creative mind flowing in a positive way. Creative Mondays. A chance for me to show off something unfinished or finished that I’ve been working on throughout the previous week.”

February 19th marked the 25th Anniversary of the first version of Photoshop. I would have been about 10 years old when it was launched and although I didn’t know it yet, Adobe’s software would become a major application in my life as a designer. I believe Photoshop 3.0 was the first version I used (installed from 6 floppy disks if I’m correct) and since then I haven’t stopped creating in some way or another.

So this week to celebrate all those years, I put together a few simple designs just as a little thank you and to show my appreciation. You can check out the official anniversary site to find out more about the celebration.

2015 – It’s Here!

Wow! Is it just me or are these years flying by? Didn’t I just do a 2014 post? Maybe I’m just repeating myself again but I’d like to thank those for tuning in to see my site this year. If I can contribute one little bit to inspiring someone to pick up a pencil or grab that camera then I feel it’s all worth it.

2015 has a nice look to it and I’m hoping get more out of this site with both my self-initiated projects (Creative Mondays included) and more of my day-to-day design work. It’s all about expanding that brand and making it a force to reckon with!

Here’s to 2014 and let’s make 2015 something to rival!
