    You know, I’m always a big fan of iShift, right before the very start, let’s see that was around the end of 2008 right? I was just a WordPress/web designer rookie at that time.

    But iShift is not about web design only. I see iShift as the likes like Abduzeedo and maybe Hongkiat. Soon to be I must say. Your resource and freebies has always been welcoming, lots of the time benefiting. Of course, this site has always been in my Google Reader.

    If given the opportunity, I’d love to bring back the iPad 2. Has always been my dream to own one. I could do wonders with it. A great tool and companion.

    Thanks for organizing this super uber cool giveaway. Hoping to see more in the future. Thanks to all the sponsors too.

    Enjoy you holidays! Cheers!

  239. I have known instantshift when it was just 5 posts old. The first impression when I visited this blog was it’s design. This design made me so curious that I made a blog myself and started designing. The quality of this blog is just too good, I get everything over here from fonts, tutorials and all the other design resource. This blog is my never ending design resource. Love what you showcase and my proud moment was when I started writing for this blog.
