4 Tips for New Graphic Designers
Being a good designer is not just about make things look pretty, it’s about solving problems. Whether you design for the web, have your hands in printed marketing materials, or design large scale projects, it’s all the same: You need to know your audience, solve the problem, make it look amazing, and stay within budget.

The IT Skills Gap Infographic
With the incredibly fast pace of technology and innovation, it's not surprising that there's a significant IT skills gap. However, there are several ways that a skills gap can negatively impact a business, including low productivity and decreased profitability.
The IT Skills Gap & How You Can Respond
Essentially, a skills gap is a gap between what employers need their employees to do, and what those employees can actually do.

Can Microsoft Edge Compete with Other Browsers?
Microsoft has dominated the desktop operating system market for decades with Windows.

Making your text easy to read and giving it a natural flow is one of the most important things you can do for your reader. It’s great to have photography, illustrations, and infographics to spice up a layout, but good typography is essential.

The term modern workplace is frequently used once an organization introduces new products or software. However, transforming into a modern workplace requires much more than a new software package. An organization must evolve into a flexible environment that allows for continued communication and collaboration.
With new products, software, and practices being created and implemented daily, businesses need to adapt in order to remain innovative and competitive. In fact, according to several sources, these three workplace practices will become extinct in the very near future: (1) Email as a primary communication tool; (2) Traditional office spaces; and (3) The 9-to-5 schedule.
