Happy Friday Everyone! Just got a few bits of news to hit ya with.

First, GridIron has released a public beta version of their remarkable asset management tool called Flow. With all the various assets and support file we have flowing around our hard drives it can get very frustrating knowing which files are being used where. Flow allows you see the work path of a particular file. Meaning you can view workflow maps that show you how all the the files are connected. For instance of you have logo that you have placed in numerous documents you can see exactly which files contain that specific logo, but it does so much more. Read more about this exciting new product and download the public beta here.

Here’s a cool link I found over at John Nack’s blog. It’s a collection of some really impressive Photoshop advertising work. I have to be honest, I was blown away by some of these pieces. Really inspiring stuff!! It’s always cool to see what others are doing because it helps you to perhaps consider some approaches to your work you hadn’t thought of. Here is the link. Enjoy!

Once again we received an overwhelming number of entries for the second Planet tutorial design contest. We will be judging the entries here soon and will post the winner sometime next week. Thanks to all you who entered and hope you had fun. More importantly, I hope you have sharpened your skills that much more! That’s it for now. Have a good weekend!!

    There are lots of great ideas beautifully executed on those ads. Eyecatching and thought provoking images. Thanks for the link (via John Nack).

    Speaking of cool sites, I found one that is amazing. It’s not Photoshop, and if anybody knows what program was used, I would love to know. The wild artwork is on a marketing site for the Zune. (Don’t get me wrong, I’m an iPhone guy, I was just surfing.) At any rate, this site can be navigated via wide mouse movements and clicks. Please, somebody check it out and tell me how they did it. Is it flash? Here’s the link: http://www.zunejourney.net/
