Alan Gilbertson is an independent (Scots by birth, independence is in the blood) creative director and designer living in Los Angeles. Specialties are visual branding, identity programs and large format (indoor, outdoor and illuminated), across all media. His first love is book design, which he never gets tired of, closely followed by Creative Suite workflow efficiency, with which he is mildly obsessed.
Besides this blog, you can find him on InDesign Secrets, graphicdesign.stackexchange.com , Behance, CreativePro.com, various Adobe forums and a sprinkling of social media sites such as LinkedIn, Twitter (@gngcreative) and Google+ (+AlanGilbertson), sharing hard-won experience with other designers about Photoshop, InDesign, Illustrator and other apps in the Adobe Creative Suite.
