Some pretty big improvements to the basic hitRECord record card design are in the midst of being developed. Super excited for these!
Posted for the people who were wondering about improvements to the drawer.
This is still in development and will take awhile to deploy, but here's a list of coming features, changes, and improvements.
As I said, these are very big changes, particularly to the back-end coding, so don't exactly deprive yourself of oxygen while you wait. But I thought I'd share the design development work since people have been asking for a lot of these features and we've been listening!
One more teaser preview of the coming development work.
Again, no breath-holding... but this stuff is indeed coming!
Friday Night at The Made Shop
Finishing up the 3rd and pre-final draft of the hitRECord RECollection anthology book with a little bit of help from my friends (Mr. Lebowski & Rye).
Final press file due in Iceland on Monday. It’s gonna be good. Very good.
Checking final hard proofs all the way from Iceland and specifying final cover fabric and foil stamping colors for hitRECord's RECollection Volume 1 packaging!
I apologize for not getting this up earlier — apparently whatever bug on the site that was affecting videos on Friday and Saturday also wouldn't let me upload large ZIP files. But the bug is fixed and I got this up.
Sorry to everyone who already started working and had to rebuild all this stuff yourselves :(
Nam pulvinar, odio sed rhoncus suscipit, sem diam ultrices mauris, eu consequat purus metus eu velit. Proin metus odio, aliquam eget molestie nec, gravida ut sapien. Phasellus quis est sed turpis sollicitudin venenatis sed eu odio. Praesent eget neque eu eros interdum malesuada non vel leo. Sed fringilla porta ligula egestas tincidunt. Nullam risus magna, ornare vitae varius eget, scelerisque a libero. Morbi eu porttitor ipsum. Nullam lorem nisi, posuere quis volutpat eget, luctus nec massa. Pellentesque aliquam lacinia tellus sit amet bibendum. Ut posuere justo in enim pretium scelerisque. Etiam ornare vehicula euismod. Vestibulum at risus augue. Sed non semper dolor. Sed fringilla consequat velit a porta. Pellentesque sed lectus.
After four rounds of cover foil stamping mock-up proofs from the printers I think we've finally settled on all the right materials, finishes, and colors. It's gonna be sexy.
Exciting news everyone! As hitRECord continues to expand so does The Made Shop. And my roll as hitRECord's Creative Director is growing and taking on The Made Shop with it!
Come meet the staff. Kim, whom I'm sure some of you know is our Manager and nothing would ever get done without her.
And I want to introduce Adam our new new Project Designer and a serious drummer! He is doing a lot of front end coding for hitREcord, making it all look pretty with new features and what not. Plus he will be acting as a Resident Curator as well, so look out for him, his hitRECord name is acb.
This is not only great for The Made Shop but it is also really going to be a huge improvement for hitRECord! Updates to the site and overall design are going to be happening a lot more frequently now and I had to share!
I thought this might make a really great chorus to a song, or else a tiny story.
(I picture it repeated with long gaps between lines, so the meaning changes each time more is added to the phrase — starting negative, moving to ambivalent, getting nearly nihilistic, but then ending with the hint of redemption. (e.g. "I'm tired." I'm tired of being tired." I'm tired of being tired of being tired." "I'm tired of being tired of being tired of being."))
