CSS3 Image Styles – Part 2

Previously I wrote two tutorials on how to style the image element with CSS3 inset box-shadow and border-radius.

FITC Logo Redesign Process by James White

At FITC Toronto in May of this year, Shawn Pucknell, FITC’s director approached James White to develop the creative for the following year's event, FITC Toronto 2012. “I've spoken at FITC twice so far and being a huge fan of the event and the entire crew behind it, I jumped at the opportunity to work with my friends,” said White.
