Pixel Art Series from your favorite TV Shows

Pixel Art Series from your favorite TV Shows AoiroStudio Jan 09, 2018 We are featuring the work from Gustavo Viselner who is an illustrator based in Tel Aviv, Israel. He is also a talented Pixel Artist with a brilliant idea to introduce this beautiful form of an accidental art from the 80s to today’s favourite TV Shows. Imagine reliving some of the best TV moments from the two decades in a Pixel form, enhance that 8-bit to the masses. You will recognize memorable TV shows like Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones, Stranger Things and a lot more. Please enjoy! Pixel-Art is an art formed by lack, emerging back in the happy 8-bit days of the 80’s. It is a foundation stone of video gamer’s folklore. For me, pixel art is no longer just a graphic tool for games, but a form of art that can stand out without having a video game to support it. Having said that, I would love to take Saul Goodman to an exciting pixelated adventure. For now translating these fantasies into illustrated scenes is all I can do, and it’s delightful.

Best Practice Tips for Successfully Working Remotely: An Interview

Working remotely has amazing benefits but the struggle is real to stay on task and work an eight hour day. In an office you eliminate the distractions of homelife and replace it with the accountability of a manager to stay focused. More and more people are choosing to telecommute, so you may be wondering if this transition is the right option for you. To better understand what it takes to successfully work remotely, I interviewed Christina Morales, one of the freelance writers with whom I work closely with at B2B ratings and reviews company, Clutch. She has been a virtual employee for many companies over eight years and has practical tips for efficiently managing her workload from home. What caused you to start working from home as a freelance writer? When my first daughter, Lanie, was born, we needed to increase our income. I didn’t want to put her in daycare so I started exploring my options for work-from-home jobs. I posted my resume on a jobsite and was hired by a local college to write for their blog. I started out making $15 per blog and was thrilled to be bringing home $300 each month while not leaving the… Read More»

Understanding Google Penalties: What to Know for SEO

Search engine optimization (SEO) has become an essential part of online marketing, even for small businesses. “We all plug into our mobile phones, tablets, and computers to keep up with the ever-changing world in which we live. For this reason, an online presence in the form of a website is vital,” notes Taylor Litle, marketer for Big Rentz, adding, “Whether in-house or outsourced, it should be in your business plan to hire one or two individual(s) to create, maintain, and monitor your website in order to stay up to date with changing software and technology.” SEO is a big part of that, and it’s easy to integrate SEO practices into your content creation efforts when you know how. Using SEO helps you get the most out of your content. It can mean the difference between your website buried deep in the search engine results pages (SERPs) behind your competitors, and sitting at the top of the first page. However, like many other marketing tactics, SEO is capable of being abused. If you fail to follow the rules of SEO, it can result in penalties, which move you further back into the SERPs and away from your customers. However, don’t let… Read More»

That is exactly why entrepreneurs are now trying to utilize Facebook pages as the means to strengthen customer relations. Today, businesses have the opportunity to interact directly with potential customers and create customized offers for each one of their followers. They can reach more people through Facebook pages than using email, websites, or any other social network.
