New blog is now at thomasbishop.me

Hey friends,

I just launched a new blog called Design & Things over at ThomasBishop.me, where I will be focusing more closely on blogging in the coming weeks and months. Mainly, I’ll be covering my thoughts and experiences on design, product and ux and potentially interviewing other designers that are doing great work.

If you’re subscribed to the feed here, please kindly head over to the new blog and subscribe via RSS or email. Thank you!

If you can’t take a step back and learn from your users, you’re not a good designer, no matter how polished your pixels are. The right decision isn’t always the best-looking.

Year in Review, 2011 Edition

2011

To say that 2011 has been a busy year is an understatement. I have had a blast working with some awesome clients, and the outlook for my business Bishop Creative could not be better. As I plan for 2012, I can’t help but look back and feel extremely lucky to have worked on some killer projects with some creative and progressive folks.

With that being said, I’ve put together some highlights from some projects that I had the pleasure to be a part of this year…

Bishop Creative is Now Responsive

I finally found some extra time this weekend to transform my main site, Bishop-Creative.com into a fully responsive layout. If you are a web designer and aren’t familiar with it, here’s a good read on the topic of responsive web design from Ethan Marcotte and the fine folks at A List Apart. If you have a second, head over to the Bishop Creative site to check out the goodness, and drop a comment with any feedback!

Top Notch Design Snaps from Forrst.com

Many of you may be familiar with the design snapshot-sharing community known as Dribbble.com (a place where designers go to post “shots”  of what they are working on, whether it be client or personal work). While there is no shortage of inspiring work on Dribbble, I was recently introduced to another great online community that has been pumping out it’s fair share of solid work. That site is Forrst.com.

Forrst not only enables you to, like Dribbble, share snapshots of what you’re working on, but also pose questions, show code examples and links. This combined with an engaging community makes it possible for designers & developers to get helpful (and if you’re lucky, candid) feedback on what you’re working on. I can’t stress enough how much of a difference this makes as a freelancer (especially to a freelancer who sits at home all day long talking to myself …themselves).

But enough chatter! Here are some examples of some talented folks doing awesome things!
