On Friday I was chatting with my friend Adam when he mentioned that he wanted a different image for his new serial blog, Gumshoe Casefiles. He described more or less what he wanted -- a manilla folder with the name in a typewriter font -- but said he couldn't find the right image.
I, of course, got all excited and told him how he could make a coffee-stained folder himself.
He lamented his lack of photoshop skills.
"Good thing you know a couple designers," I said.
Ten minutes later I was spilling coffee on my own manilla folder.
So far so good.
We decided the initial design looked too plain, so I took a photo of my desk, dropped it behind the folder, and added a little tilt for good measure.
He still plans to tweak the colors a bit, but go check out the final product!
