The Sequel of Designer vs Client

If you have not seen the first installment of this hilariously funny animation, then head to Designer vs Client first, then come back to watch this, the sequel.

I'm just splitting my sides here...

Thanks to Steve Campbell (@Debut_Steve) for the tweet which launched me to post on IJC.

Days Typeface - Ideal for Logo Designs

Days is another neat and free typeface, again found on Behance, a real treasure trove of delights. This is so clean, modern and stylish. Love the curves, the rounded edges, the compact 'squared' feel. I can see this being perfect for certain styles of logo designs.

There is only one weight which is a shame, as I feel it would really benefit from a slightly thinner version, but only minor gripe given it's a complete typeface in every other regard.

It's free for use and available for Mac and PC as a OpenType format. Includes all basic latin and cyrillic letters, numbers and symbols.

I have been a big fan of Rockable for some time and have read their brilliant publications. You will no doubt notice that I have Rockable Adverts plastered over my site, and I can say that these guides sell very well.

Since the utter success of the Giveaways on LoveHelvetica I figured I would give some of these Rockable guides away just because I can.

There are 2 Copies of the Rockstar WordPress Designer Guide to be given away for this post, there will be more Rockable Giveaways in a short while.

How to get your hands on a copy

Not going to get you jumping through hoops for this. Firstly, simply sign up to the IJC RSS Feed if you have not done so already. Then, just leave a comment below saying you have signed up, or have already signed up and that's all you have to do.

Duplicate entries will be voided.

I will use a random number generator (Random,org) to pick two names. I will then contact the winners to arrange the details of how to get the book.

Please ensure you leave a valid email address on your comment details.

Winners announced on...

I will pick the winners earlier than previously mentioned. The new date will be Monday 16th February so get your skates on.

Book Details

"Managing web content has always been tricky, but with WordPress, any web designer can have a flexible, free and powerful CMS to use not just on blogging projects, but on all sorts of websites. In How To Be a Rockstar WordPress Designer you will learn step by step how to take a straight HTML site and power it with WordPress.

During the course of the book you’ll build THREE WordPress themes, a blog, a portfolio site and a general site with menus and submenus. Each theme demonstrates different aspects of WordPress theming and all three are packaged in with the book so you’ll have Photoshop, HTML, CSS and WordPress PHP files to refer to."
