Wondering what your options are for funding your app idea? What about monetizing it? From various funding models to the most common monetization strategies, the Guide to Funding & Monetizing Your App has the answers you're looking for.
That’s right, this week we have a special edition of Found Fridays, with a focus on Edmonton-based products and articles that designers like you and I dig. We have some awesomely illustrated planners, a free design/art/music/lifestyle magazine, a shop with a variety of prints and novels for sale, a great post detailing the logo design process for a large-scale baseball tourney, and a great online wall decal shop . And this week’s finds aren’t only available/of interest to Edmontonians either; these goodies are available to one and all.
VeeKee makes amazingly illustrated agendas for sale; pick one up and keep your life organized. Sexily organized.
Parlour Magazine features awesome a) writing, b) design, c) photography and d) stories. We were fortunate enough to garner a mention in one of their issues, but there are much more interesting people and events being covered in every issue. Past features include Lady Gaga, Metric and more. Check it out – free if you can pick it up in Edmonton, or you can subscribe!
A two-person team, International Beauty Saloon offers beautifully crafted goods like show posters, graphic novels, and prints. Have a look, even if only for inspiration.
A friend of mine is a designer over at Urban Jungle, an Edmonton marketing firm. This post details the thought processes and progression of designing the logo for the 2010 World Women’s Baseball Championship – definitely worth a read, and the end result is great and far from any standard athletic designs out there.
Peelmonkey, aside from having a great name, is a surface decal company (like Blik, but from Edmonton). They have some amazing designs available for purchase from their site; I highly recommend clicking through. Great artwork, great decoration for your workspace or home.
That’s it that’s all! See you next week – and if you have any submission suggestions for future Found Fridays, email me!
