    A big clpas to you!

  137. iShift has been one of my “must-read-daily” for quite some time now (along with the other big boys in the respective field). iShift changes their topics, freebies, and article subjects quite often – never actually repeating the same things over and always offering new insight(s) to certain trends and products.

    It is a constant inspiration for me both creatively and mentally from the beautiful web designs/logos/typefaces to the information-driven articles to help me grow as a freelancer.


  138. I’m in! @paulsanduleac

  139. When designing my new website I would find myself coming to InstantShift frequently in search of tutorials and inspiration. For me that is the best present that I have received because it allowed for me to create a website that my visitors will enjoy.

  141. Neat site. Lots of really interesting stuff and useful information here.

  142. Merry Christmas and Happy new Year Guys… and thank you for many interesting posting. It has influenced my work to some extent and got my brain spinning!

  228. hey i forget to mention my twitter id : rthej

  229. as soon as I enter instantShift,
    my mind inevitably starts to drift,
    to kick ass type and colors swift.
    this awesomeness, sweet as pie,
    cleansing my mind, pleasing my eye –
    such good design – it can’t be a lie!

    but oh, noes,

    I am a mere sales analyst,
    musing of being a wacom artist.
    but with help of a erudite altruist,
    such as the delightful instantShift –
    as their scholar – I could close the rift,
    and so hope of your philanthropic gift!


  230. InstantShift has helped me in so many ways. First and foremost: ideas! Your broad range of topics have kickstarted new ideas, whether it is an illustration that makes me rethink a site design or a simple wallpaper that inspires me to minimize my illustration. Truly, this is a site that enhances my idea arsenal. Thank you!

  231. instantShift is an excellent source of WP tutorials. Thanks for the great artilces.
    twitter: @idntt

  232. Instantshift is a great resource for inspiration, tutorials and freebies. thanks, @torstennn

  233. I first found iShift when I was included in a blog post a few months ago. Ever since I check back to see the quality posts and happenings.

  234. Forgot to add my twitter @tyrale

  235. InstantShift has helped me coding my previous website – and is helping me build my newest site. The tutorials and the round-ups are also very helpful, mainly the ones about Photoshop and WordPress. I really enjoyed when you stepped out of the 2D realm and posted a round-up of 3ds max tutorials! For a beginner in 3dsm, that was really a must!

    Keep up the quality! And the variety!


  236. “The best part of waking up, is iShift in your cup” (sung to the tune of the classic Folger’s commercial . . damn . . I am showing my age).

    My age aside, I do start my mornings with a nice hot cup of Folger’s and my iShift RSS feed, which usually leads to a good hour on the actual website. Thanks for the time and sacrifice to keep the site current and chock full of awesomeness!

    I suppose my first choice, duh, would be the Wacom: Intuos4, however, the WordPress themes from Elegant are looking rather intriguing as well.

    Here’s to winning!

    Kind Regards,
    Bryan J Zimmermann
