Design Chick's Blogaboo!

Archive for the ‘Uncategorized’ Category

Okay Laura, don’t be too dramatic.  I will never quit design chicks.  Ever.  I just quit my day job though to go on to bigger and better things.  I have now convinced Laura to join me in my new venture.  What will we be doing you ask?  We will be teaching photoshop to old people.  Why you ask?  Simple.  We want to be stinking, filthy rich.    How will we become stinking, filthy rich you ask? Simple.  We will teach old bitties photoshop, duh.

Picture this: you are old, I mean, cripple & pruney old, and your beatiful 20 something year old grand daughter snaps a picture of you.  You take a peak at it and gasp.  Who is that cripple pruney broad in the photo before you?  It’s you!  Well, how is that a picture appropriate for you facebook profile picture?  I can tell you the answer, it’s NOT.  Take a few lessons from us and you will be able to turn your photo from wrinkly old prune to a Jennifer Anniston look-a-like.   What do you think a geriatric would pay for such services?  We’ve done some (minimal) research and  we’ve concluded that they would spend about $3,000 an hour.   Cha-ching!!  If you are interested in such services please contact Laura or I.  Just google us.

Check out our photo bellow, where we took a picture of Mary Kate & Ashley Olsen looking like trashy, used up celebs and made them look young, youthful and ready to have some peanut butter jelly time. Yes, it is the exact same picture with a little photoshop manipulation.  Hold the phone! We are only offering our services to retired people willing to shell out some serious dough.  We did this project for Mary Kate and Ash pro-bono and becuase they’ve been retired from spouting out phrases like “you got it dude” and ” You’re in big trouble, mister!”  for quite some time now.


Friends, family, blog world, I am sad to announce that my fellow cooworker, Robin McNicoll has decided to leave me. WHAT?! NO! HOW? BUT I THOUGHT YOU TWO WERE INSEPARABLE!
So did I, I had even built a cottage in muskoka for us to blog in and grow old together. But alas, her love for me has hardened like a chocolaty shell over a soft vanilla ball from dairy queen. A brick of chedder cheese that wasn’t re-wrapped properly, so the end of it is dark and inedible. Dark like my very soul at this very moment. ROBIN DONT GO! DONT LEAVE ME! Who am I to laugh with, raise a child with, and most importantly, ride a ferry with. oh how you loved slow boats.

I leave you with a song that I feel sums up our relationship. There have been ups and downs, we’ve laughed, we’ve cried. mostly cried, but by god you are my hero. You are the wind beneath my wings.

Farewell sweet friend.

I always knew online gamers had something up their wizard sleeves. Behind those sweaty palms and cheeto-stained chins, there are mad scientists at work – and they may just be the key to huge advancements in aids research! What?! how is that even POSSIBLE?! it’s possible, and it happened. Using the online game foldit, gamers accuratley predicted the structure of a retroviral enzyme that has stumped scientists for more than a decade –  wow I bet those scientists feel really dumb. for real. Experts are saying this discovery could also spark new projects between scientists and gamers across the planet! (or the ENTIIIIIIRE UNIVERSE, according to the gaming nerds). So go visit a local gamer near you and give them a pat on the back for a job well played, and maybe stay for a crustless peanut butter sandwich and sunny-D lunch prepared lovingly by their mother – thanks mom!

Butter Is our new guest blogger! He will be covering all things sports!  Before I bring him in, perhaps you would like to learn a little more about him. Butter was born in a small small town, too small to even describe. He has a pet hamster named frank, and he loves the musical les miserables!  Butter, what would you like to say?

Butter: “in the words of Kenny Powers, YOU’RE FUCKIN OUT!”

Thanks Butter! Stay tuned blog universe from more from our good friend butter.

I know we have fans from all around the world.  Like Jimmy who wrote us last week from Germany.  He told us about how much he loved our horoscopes and how if he hadn’t read ours last month he may about pooped in a bucket in public (how embarrassing!)

Anyways, not all of our adoring fans know that we are actual designers for a living.  SAY WHAT?  Yes that’s right.    Chill Magazine (yes we design that)  is holding a contest right now to vote for your favourite cover.  Easy as pie.  You vote, you win beer.
So vote for your best (preferably one that I’ve designed okay). Click here to go to the contest. If you don’t you will get sick in the next week and you will have a 100% probability of  losing control of your bowels. Just sayin’.

Rachel Reilly was absolutely devastated after her fiance Brendon got voted off  of the show.  She was so distraught so Jordan suggested that they give her a makeover.  Rachel suggested dying her hair a drastic color.  Since they didn’t have access to any hair dye on the set they used koolaid packages and markers. I assume it will be washed out by the time the next episode airs so I thought I’d share this pic with all you big brother fans.


Have you ever wondered what your name means?  I know I have!  Well we decided to take the last few months off and travel the entire world to find out the meaning behind every single name in the history of mankind.

We’ve had to create a whole new blog which you can find here.  It’s going to take us a while to get all of the names and their definitions on the site so if you have any specific names you’d like to see send let us know!  We promise we will post them as quick as we can!


What's your email? Give it to us. You won't be disappointed.
