Where have I been?

September 25, 2007

As some of you know, we here at Tropist Media are not only a blog but also a startup company. We’ve been working tirelessly for the last couple of months and are getting close to launching our new product. Unfortunately, my time to work on the Tropist Weblog has been lost in the crossfire.

But, I’m back. I won’t be as consistent as before, but hopefully I’ll be more poignant. This means I’m still on the lookout for interesting stuff. If you come across something you think I’d like, feel free to shoot me an email and I’ll probably feature it. Look for new posts starting tomorrow!

In other news, we are looking for a killer web designer! If you do unbelievably easy and gorgeous UI design, shoot me an email, I’d love to talk.

Thanks for the support everyone!

Shade Running

 Shade Running

Here’s a great ad from Nike that has really been resonating with me given the weather in the North East this summer. The ad’s effects were done by Method Studios, a California-based effects house, that also happens to be hiring for all you job hunters out there.

The ad is called Shade Running it is a great example of a simple concept executed very well. You don’t have to be a runner to appreciate a good bit of shade on a hot summers day.

Watch it on YouTube or head to Method Studios official site to see it in higher quality.

Getting Close

January 17, 2007

Brendan and I are glad to report that we are getting quite close to a launch date! We’ll begin testing in a live environment with creative people very soon. If you’d like to be one of the first to create your portfolio shoot us an email at or post a comment here.

And if you know someone who is an actor, a photographer, a painter, an editor, an illustrator, a designer, a director, a dp, or anyone who has a portfolio, we’d love to get in contact with them. We currently support all formats of video and images (audio and documents coming soon). We’re gunning to be the best creative portfolio/talent hub on the web. It may take a little while, but we’re giving it a shot.
