CSS Zen Garden 126 alias C-Note. Few words for the 100 dollar's intaglio, for me it's wonderful. Good "color scheme", good fonts choice. I think that is very hard find a work so original. Compliments to Brian Williams for the good work.

Wallboard new css layoutToday I've finished the set of photoshop brushes. Their name is Spaghetti Vintage, I think that it's the most appropriate name.I've certainly chosen spaghetti for my patriotism : Joke!! I've chosen spaghetti because maybe when I was a child, I loved that famous series Spaghetti Western, but using old west as theme wasn't good. I hope that they're right for your work. If you liked, write and give me your opinion. Cheers Emi..

Thanks always to my best friend Gabriele Magurno for the support.

Flick image!

Internet Explorer is an ugly beast! But in the writing of the css code, the bug that hatred more of all is: the flickering of the images. How I read time back:

The flickering is a funny thing IE does when you have it set to always check for newer versions of stored pages.

Luckily this problem, disturbs only the the server and the developers Rarely that a visitor goes from the your website because disturbed by the img flickering. For example: this website suffer of flickering, it disturb? For reasons of my poor knowledge, I didn't think before to this problem.To the next version I'll think, of course. If you do not know this bug, then it is better that you read these two articles:

Aiga simbol,Rail Transportation Very interesting. Aiga released about 50 symbols which can be free download.
This system of 50 symbol signs was designed for use at the crossroads of modern life: in airports and other transportation hubs and at large international events. Produced through a collaboration between the AIGA and the U.S. Department of Transportation, they are an example of how public-minded designers can address a universal communication need.

NOTE - ONLY FOR WINDOWS USER: To extract the files correctly, StuffIt Deluxe v8.0 or superior for win is necessary.

Cuts and CapsBorn of an earlier era, the Cuts and Caps herein belong to a time when the easiest way to mass-produce an image was to create it in metal for printing. Ornaments and intial caps were cast in type metal; larger illustrations were etched into metal plates and mounted type-high to create blocks called cuts. Commercial type foundries built their own collections of these images, publishing them alongside their typefaces in specimen books.

Download the Cuts and Caps is free!

60'sLife StyleCiao a tutti! I return from Holidays very happy. I'm between official design of Css Zen Garden with 60's Life Style and Medioevo. other happening signed: Metrostation Design.

60's Life Style review:

Single-handedly increasing the mammalian head count of the Zen Garden, the wild header alone is worth the price of admission to Emiliano’s Zoo.

Medioevo review:

Kind of Gothic, kind of Classical, all Italian.

Many thanks to Dave for have estimated my works.
