Today we added a Featured Clients section to sketchpad.net. This section is a collection of website reviews we have put together to show some of the websites we have worked on. The examples vary widely, depending on what was done to the website. The work on these sites varies from minor to major design changes and from facelifts to major overhauls in the HTML to make the site more browser friendly or more search engine friendly. Please check out our latest review on the chocolate fountain. Chocolate fountains were always thought to be a luxury item, until now. The company, Fundue Foods, has developed a home chocolate fountain for home use.

I’ve added a new and very important tutorial – on OpenType® fonts. Please take a look at it. I believe this new font format will take hold and eventually be in wide use by graphic design professionals. OpenType is still a relatively new font format even though it has been released for several years now.

I have also added another new tutorial that is related to OpenType fonts – Using OpenType Fonts With Adobe® InDesign®. This tutorial deals with how to access OpenType special features with InDesign.

Also, I revised the Font Basics – Part One tutorial to include a note about OpenType fonts.

Welcome to the Sketchpad.net Blog. Previously, you could find all the new tutorials at the “Newest Pages” page, but there was no way for you to catch any revisions. For example, I recently revised the QuarkXPress® Tips page. There you will find a faster and easier way to add hanging indents to your QuarkXPress layouts.

Keep checking back here at the blog to find the latest free fonts. Mike’s Sketchpad is proud to announce that we will be offering free OpenType® OTF (PostScript®) fonts whenever they become available. For example checkout “Generic Tech”, “5 x 6″, “Space Gothic” and “Metro Mono”. These are the first OpenType free fonts available at the Sketchpad.net free fonts archive.

Mike’s Sketchpad provides Photoshop tutorials, free fonts plus news, articles and other resources for the graphic arts professional.
