If you have FTP access to your site ( which you should have), there are 2 documents under stylesheets that end with .css, try copy pasting that code bit I posted before in this thread in the text styles.css file (at the end) , save and that should add more space....

Thanks Keno, I'll give it a shot. EverWeb is a WYSIWYG type web creation app. Will that jack with the overall app, or will I have to do that every time? I made a topic on their help forum and the lack of response is making me think they don't have a way to adjust it.

Also, just looked back at comments on this thread going back to 2005. Amazing... and a little hilarious.

It shouldn't, it just converts the WISWIG into standard html + css, so you are just bypassing that; but I usually start any changes with a backup copy of the whole site just in case.

will I have to do that every time?


That might happen, if you modify the server file, when you push (upload) from your computer's WISWIG it might overwrite the custom rule, the solution to that is to find your local version if you are working from your computer, probably from spotlight, ( or on ew_css folder) and change the file there.

Sounds scary, but as long as you have a backup and ftp access you can rebuild in a few minutes.

Thanks Keno. Between your advice and the EverWeb forums I got it fixed. You've got to love the deep knowledge you can get from forums.

I also moved some other things back to the about page to keep the front page a little lighter.

The EverWeb forums are pretty good.

While the work is obviously pretty good, I find the presentation of it to be a bit overwhelming. Maybe try pairing down the number of projects and simplify the layout. I know you mentioned that your intent is to err on the side of maximalism, but I wonder if there's a way to do that in a way that's less overwhelming?

Just my two cents. Take it with a grain of salt or maybe show it to other people/friends and see if they have similar reactions.

I hear what you are saying, on the flip side, it has worked for me for the past 20 years. Even as a junior designer I'd come in with books and books of work, giant posters showing concepts mapped out and strategy.... I always got an offer, frequently on the spot. So perhaps what is the accepted norm needs to be challenged. When I see a portfolio with only a few slides of radiuses boxes in it always leaves me wanting, or even worse is just forgettable. When someone looks at my work, I want them to come away with the idea "holy crap, this guy can and has designed everything."... and has done so for some pretty big brands.

When I interviewed at frog I didn't even bring a presentation, just 2 suitcases filled with production product, and told them to pick any one and I'd walk them through the story.

It is a pretty odd approach though, so it is worth questioning.

updated a bunch more content.

1) 2012 and earlier sketch book (going all the way back to 1998)
2) additional Jordan, nike, and Converse work
3) additional CE work
4) added sketch videos in tutorials
5) added core77 conference keynote on about page
6) added video to BOOM page

feel free to tool around: http://www.michaelditullo.com

This is one of the images I added to the other CE page. It is pretty hilarious now. This was from 2003. The iPod was new. No one saw the iPhone coming. This was a concept for a "digital wallet" for PayPal. The idea is that it would be a complete digital wallet and even have a digital version of your driver's license and passport, al unlocked with a thumbprint scan. This render was featured in Mobile PC magazine in a future concept issue.... while a lot of the ideas contained within it became a reality via Apple and Samsung pay, the idea of a stand alone device seams ludicrous now.... hey, sometimes we get it wrong. I did follow this up 2 years later when the iPhone came out in a smart phone concept called "The One" that integrated all of these features, plus streaming movies, and was the core processor for both home and work, basically a phone plus a massive solid state hard drive with better GPU.

The amount of different products that you have designed is inspirational!
I bet it is great fun to look back on the stuff you did a few years ago and reminisce

I am a particular fan of the bridge sketch from the 2012 sketchbook :)

Thanks man. My goal is to design as many different things as possible, even if they only get to sketch form. It never hurts to put out there in the universe what you want to do.

Ah, that bridge sketch. I like that as well. It was for a competition in Portland to design a bridge over the Willamette river by PortArt magazine in response to the cities approved design that the art and design community disapproved of. I think my sketch came in first or second place, but the bridge was built as originally proposed. Still fun to imagine though. Poland is sometimes called Bridge Town or Bridge City because there are so many bridges. I pulled inspiration from some of the more iconic ones.

Here is that sketchbook:

That's a really good mind set to have - I often find myself disregarding something that I think of because there is no end goal (which goes against everything I was taught at university - I think that might be bad habits picked up in industry starting to set in).
I am definitely going to take a leaf out of your book and just sketch down everything and really push outside of my comfort zone.

Congratulations on the placing for the design, its a real shame that the disapproved design was built instead though! :?

On that note this one made me chuckle from 2013s sketchbook. It's almost as if this was the first client review concept sketch for an electric skateboard that eventually became the "hoverboard" when it reached the market :wink:

Do you have any recommendations with Wordpress? I hadn't looked much into it.


Now I'm frustrated. How the heck do you have time to build a website, sketch, run a design dept?

I just redid my website the fairly hard way. I downloaded a template from god knows where, tweaked it and then spent weeks getting it to actually run on my website! I learned alot, but I'm really thinking wordpress or squarespace from now on, or hire someone else, which is what I assumed you did! Great job!
