Meet the Dark Side*

Well, it’s that time of year again. BBQ season. Strawberry season. NFL Training Camp. In a word – Summer. The start of many things, but the end of the dreaded school season (cue Alice Cooper).

TQS: Our Summer Of Plans

It’s that time of year again. The time of year when TQS-ers begin talking non-stop about our summer plans. I wanted to provide a healthy outlet for this non-stop chatter (because some of us have work to do, like writing this blog), so I let everyone tell me all at once about the best and [ view the rest ]

Capital Heat: New Addition Gifts

One of our clients, Capital Heat, needed a way to stay top-of-mind after completing work for their customers. They wanted to make [ view the rest ]

A new drawing tablet, the Slate 2

I’ve recently purchased a new drawing tablet. This tablet is not your typical “I’m drawing with an imaginary pen and paper and it’s magically appearing on my screen!” kind of tablet. With the Slate, made by iskn, you are actually drawing with a real pen (or pencil) and paper! Having a background in illustration and [ view the rest ]
