Say hello to another burst of digital creativity from one of our interns, Matt. Create a blast from the past with this old school vintage UI Kit that will give your next design a taste of 1955. From the palette to type, this kit captures the essence of American history and culture. Take it as is or throw a modern twist on it – no matter what you do, shoot us a link to what you’re working on so we can ogle your take on it.
Pop. Lock. And drop it.
Here at Digital Surgeons, we drop our working projects into the big (somewhat scary) virtual box. The Dropbox. We place an absurd amount of confidence in this hosting service – because it’s given us no reason not to. And we love it. It’s like an all-access meal plan in college. Or the fast pass at Disney. If you don’t use Dropbox, you’ve at least heard about cloud based file storage or use a similar service like GoogleDrive, BOX.net, BitCasa or Hightail (formally YouSendIt). We have a business account with Dropbox, providing a good amount of space to access and share our files within – anytime, anywhere with anyone.
Mobile video offers brands a new and interesting way to interact with it’s customers. It’s not about the platform, it’s about telling engaging stories and connecting with audiences.
We took all of that pesky research around the current state of mobile video and condensed it into a beautiful infographic. It’s our pleasure to present the Rise of Mobile Video Infographic.

There comes a moment when all account and strategy people look at the great design around them and think, “why not me?” You watch all day as designers effortlessly navigate Photoshop and start manipulating everyday assets into pieces of beauty. They have perfectly married technical ability with a broader sense of taste and vision; quickly differentiating between “good design” and “bad design”.
We all have enough hindrances, internal and external, barricading us from creating inspiring experiences. Don’t let your tools be one more brick in that creative block. Remember that design is all about time. Why? Because you will never have enough. So start with some healthy design habits to give yourself the opportunity for a rich social life or time to work on that side project you’ve been dying to bring into fruition. Whatever the reason, don’t let present you disappoint future you. These off-the-clock experiences are essential to keeping you sane and continually creative.
