I wanted to open the floor to fellow designers to request tutorials and how-to’s. I post my own articles each day, but if any designers have any burning questions or would like to know how to do something in particular, how to approach a design, how to create a certain look, etc., then I would like to start supplying answers to requests. I can do just about anything design-wise. Keep in mind that I am a designer, not a developer, so I cannot answer questions regard programming languages, functions, or anything beyond basic actionscript in Flash. I can do CSS, HTML, and any type of design work.  I can do just about anything regarding Adobe, except video and sound work. I am going to list a few tutorials on here to give an idea of some of the things that I have done, and then you guys can post requests for tutorials that you would like to see on there. I would be glad to help anyone that needs some guidance. You can post requests wither here or on my site in the comments area.

There are also numerous articles regarding examples of beautiful web design or interesting sites, and announcements of new products and reviews. I love to discuss anything design, so please feel free to let me know what you would like to see on the site. Would you like to see a weekly podcast? I would love to do that, and if enough people ask for it, I will post it on here and have it put on itunes so that you can subscribe to the weekly download. I have enough viewers coming to the site now, that a podcast may be a good way to show some more in depth tutorials. I could show you some really in depth tutorials that are simply way too long to type out. Everyone’s input would be greatly appreciated.
