One of the challenges of being a small design studio (I like to think of us as "boutique", because it sounds better) is the creation of assets that larger developers already have lying around on the shelf. For instance, slowly but surely we're working to bring new, reusable libraries of objects online that will speed [...]
Today's Nantucket destination is perhaps the unluckiest spot of real estate on the island, the Brant Point lighthouse. If not for the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune, this poor lighthouse might have been the oldest on Nantucket. The whaling industry on Nantucket was booming by the mid 1700's. In order to improve safety for [...]

Amidst the flood of paying work lately (and mind you, I'm not complaining), I've managed to squeeze in a few hours here and there to push the Heron's Nest towards completion. There were two things left on my mental list that had to be checked off before I could move to final testing and installer: [...]
Everything in life is a balancing act, it seems, and nothing more so than the so-called "career" of a self-employed freelancer.
