aea365 Office Timeline I’m Naomi Walsh and I am a novice consultant. One of the challenges of breaking into consulting is presenting yourself as a professional. One way that I do this is to share timelines for projects that I am working on – they show that I am organized and prepared, and provide a visual planning aid for those with whom I am working. Hot Tip – Office Timeline 2010: I recently found this free PowerPoint plug-in that incorporates an extremely easy to use timeline maker right into PowerPoint. It includes a wizard that walks you through, step-by-step, adding planning stages and milestones, creates a great-looking timeline, and then has options for tweaking the results. And, it’s free.

aea365 Tagxedo Good Morning! here, AEA’s Executive Director. We’ve had a number of posts talking about creating and using word clouds, primarily in terms of creating them through wordle. Word clouds take a set of text and create a cloud of the most frequent words in that text with word size within the cloud based on frequency. Here’s an example that I made today using the AEA square logo and the text from the AEA Guiding Principles for Evaluators . Bezier Curves and Type Design: A Tutorial When I am asked to calibrate a typeface or logo, or when someone asks me for help with their typefaces, one of the most common problems I find is bad Bézier curve design. And every single time this happens, it’s not people’s fault: they just don’t know better. And there’s that heart-stabbing situation when someone pings and says “Hey, I just finished this font, can you have a look and see if something’s missing?” and I feel obliged to say, with grief, “You have to redesign it all over: it’s poorly designed, bézier-wise”. So, in order to save some people from this hassle, in advance, read along.
