Last week, Rosenfeld Media and Six Revisions ran a comment-and-win contest called Giveaway: Free User Experience Books from Rosenfeld Media. With over 300 participants, it was evident that the books were in great demand!
Besides Six Revisions, I also write for other design, development, and technology related publications. It just occurred to me that it’d be useful to notify the readers of Six Revisions about articles I write for other sites in case you wanted to subject yourself to the torture of reading (even more) of my articles.
Starting today, I’ll be publishing Elsewhere on the Web, which will be short posts about articles I wrote somewhere else.

The success of a site depends on the quality of experience they provide to their users. As the competition for the user’s attention increases, you, as a designer, have a short window of opportunity to get them hooked before they hit the “back” button and search for another alternative. This is where the field of User Experience (UX) evolved from, out of a necessity to keep your existing audience, and to encourage new users to come and stay a while.
Janet Jackson and Luther Vandross were right when they sang, “the best things in life are free”. There are many talented designers out there who choose to help the community by providing free and useful Photoshop brush sets that you can download and use on your artwork.
In this collection, you’ll find over 50 free Photoshop brush sets for current design trends and styles such as vintage, retro, grunge, hand-drawn, swirls, and nature-inspired.
Note: It’s important to read the fine-print – some designers require attribution or have special requirements for commercial use. Even if they don’t require any credit, it’s always highly-appreciated to give them some anyways.
