Architectural Stationery Vignettes

Columbia University apparently has an enormous archive of commercial stationary featuring architectural illustrations– and thank god because they’re incredible artifacts for today’s designers. They’re magnificently dense with detailed architectural drawings, filigreed banners and beautiful hand drawn fonts; you almost never see this level of detail in a design world driven by Adobe Illustrator, stock art, and copy & paste.


Network Solutions is terrible

For anyone thinking about using network solutions for their hosting provider, please look elsewhere. Their support is hopelessly slow (took them a week to reply to me) and their answer to why php mail doesn’t work on their server was essentially You don’t pay us enough to have things work correctly. Fortunately there are better hosts that cost less. InMotion, Dreamhost, even godaddy has better support, cheaper rates and better servers.
