Every now and then we come across a simple but brilliant device that makes our jobs easier and provides a great solution for home owners. The Door Saver is one such device that we found at the recent Home Builders Show in Las Vegas. Its ultra-low-profile design replaces the hinge pin to create bumperless protection for doors and trim. It is simple to install, looks great, is made with strong carbon steel and comes in four finishes. So no more bumpers installed onto your beautiful floors and no more missing rubber caps. This is a very elegant way to control your door swing without damaging casing, floors and walls. http://www.doorsaver.com/doorsaver2.html.

We try to make it a point to share great finds with our colleagues and fans. LogoSnap is one of those finds. Have you experienced the frustration of trying to develop a new marketing campaign or graphic concept in-house, only to find that you spent way too much time to arrive at that same old conclusion? Or, have you ever hired a "creative" firm only to receive a big bill and a not so "creative" solution? LogoSnap is a one-stop, on-line creative hub for all manner of electronic and printed marketing campaigns.
Havana Film Festival Winning Design
We went to LogoSnap for help with several recent projects and got great results. This was the case when we decided to refresh our branded image and needed a new Logo Design, stationary and business cards for our firm. We also needed creative assistance when volunteering for the Havana Film festival and needed a new concept for the Gala invitations. The LogoSnap website reaches graphic designers on a 24/7 basis from around the world to compete for your winning design. From Holiday cards, stationary, websites to car wrap – it can all be designed online! We simply posted a creative brief, specified a reward and then launched the project. Within 24 hours we started receiving submissions back, each very unique and creative. You can either eliminate a designer’s submission or provide feedback and have the submission further refined. The only real difficulty to this amazingly creative platform was in deciding on the winner. If you haven’t tried the LogoSnap approach for your creative needs, we encourage you to do so. It’s like having your own graphic design team, but at a fraction of the cost.

We were recently introduced to Z Glass Design which fabricates the most unusual and beautiful glass designs we've seen yet. The glass is functional and structural and can be used as backsplash, countertops, dividing walls, art, floors, showers, etc. The list is quite extensive.
