Serving banner ads

The process of building Flash banner advertising and getting it to the website its being displayed on can be a complex and confusing process with many more parties involved than you might imagine!

I’ll be posting some helpful info about the process soon but feel free to post some questions and I’ll do my best to help out your understanding! 🙂



First funny!

It’s Monday, so to cheer you up just imagine how you felt when you’re mum critiqued your horrid mass of crayon scribbles a.k.a “drawings

Nice one This Advertising Life

Using MAC Fonts on a PC

My work has switched me to PC from my Mac (I still bring in my Mac)… lets not get into why.

Designers give me their creative built on Macs (naturally) and I need to develop it on my PC. They may include Mac specific fonts eg. Mac TT, Type 1 fonts, or dfonts where the font information is stored in whats called the resource fork on Macs. The PC cant access this information rendering the fonts useless!

OpenType fonts are the winner and can be passed between Mac and PC however you cant always demand your clients to provide you with these fonts. They may not have licenses etc…

Font convertors don’t seem to be too reliable at this stage of my research either, sometimes rendering slight differences in the font once processed.

Post some comments and help me out with this one team =)

Extract all images from a Word Document easily

Extract all images from a Word Document easily

Client gives you all the images he/she wants on his website nicely jammed into a word document (” Why I oughta!!! “) . You have to then painstakingly save out each image one at a time right?…. Wrong 🙂

Thanks to Riyaz Sayyad‘s hot tip Just:

1. Open Word Document
2. Save as > Web page
3. Word extracts all images into a sub folder.
