VectorStock: Free February Vector

I’ve gotten quite a few emails from people who have missed the Vectorstock Free Vector of the month a time or two, and asked me to email it to them. Well, as much as I wish I could, I’m pretty sure it’s illegal to re-distribute digital media that doesn’t belong to me. So, I’m going to remind everyone each month to go download the free files. This month’s free Vectorstock vector hints at Valentine’s Day. Download it while you can folks. (remember, you have to be registered and logged in to download the free vectors over there)

Font Update: Panhead

I found a great little font here that I want to share with everyone called Panhead, by Billy Argel. Billy is a great font artist, and if you pay attention to his fonts, he includes lots of little hidden gems in his character sets. In this case, some killer swirly curls/floral dingbats. The reason I like them so much is because you can easily “create outlines” (in the Type menu) in Illustrator to convert these dingbats to good old fashioned vectors.

Have a Website? It’s Time to Add a WebClip Icon

WebClip Icons are strictly for iPhone & iPod Touch users, but since they are quite the popular little devices, website owners might want to think about adding a WebClip icon soon. A WebClip icon is the icon that the iPhone/iPod Touch uses if a user adds your site to their (now customizable) homescreen/s. I would expect that most people who would bookmark BittBox on the iPhone would just read the RSS feed, but as a site owner, I don’t want to leave anything to chance. I want my icon to look the way I want it to look, and not rely on the iPhone to do it for me. Think of it as a really big favicon.
