Review: Rampant Design Tools
Published: October 9, 2013

As a high school media teacher and professional, I rarely have the time I need to do all the bells and whistles I want to create for my projects.

Review: Maxon Cinema 4D Release 12
Published: October 29, 2010

I love companies that continuously push the envelope. Apple and Adobe come quickly to mind. In my opinion, each and every product from those companies get better and better. When Adobe introduced CS5, not only did I fill my computers with it, but also made sure the school started using it.
