Extensis has released Suitcase Fusion 6 today, bringing compatibility for the font management tool with the latest versions of Adobe Creative Cloud, Quark XPress, and Apple’s Yosemite OS. I hope to be publishing a full review later this week or early next.

A 220-page PDF manual on “Everything You Wanted to Know About Logos But Didn’t Know Who To Ask.” I haven’t gotten through the entire book, but what I have read is pretty good so far. Thanks to the Logo Factory for the book, and for making it freely-available to designers everywhere.
Apple’s UI changes from iOS 7 to iOS 8 are subtle, yet incredibly extensive. Spacing, positioning, and font sizes and weights were liberally tweaked and adjusted. Almost every icon was redrawn as well. Mercury has released their fully vectorized iOS 8 UI kit, absolutely free, and it’s definitely worth downloading.
The Loop’s Jim Dalrymple, famous for his ‘yep’ or ‘nope’ posts when commenting on the validity of an Apple rumor, has posted his initial thoughts on using the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus for the last week. This is not a full review, but rather a first impression of using each device.
I liked his angle on this post. We all know what the iPhone is, and what it can do. There’s really no reason to post all manner of techno-babble like everyone else.
