Followers of this site may recall a recent Martini Hour in which Colleen and I interview Karen Gauthier, product manager of a promising new application called GridIron Flow. Karen and I go way back to her days with Adobe, and as she’s fond of reminding me, I talked her into joining GridIron. So it is with some pride I announce that Flow begins shipping today. (Coincidentally, Flow ships within a few days of the anniversary of dekeOnline, a project that Karen talked me into. So we’re even, ha!)
Flow has been in development for the better part of the last two years, and it looks to me like time well spent. In fact, I regard Flow as essential software for any creative professional. For complete info, check out the Martini Hour episode (it’s fairly entertaining, actually) or this ancient blog post.
The software is normally $299. But you can get Flow for just $199 at gridironflow.com/deke. That’s $100 off, but only until July 3 at midnight Pacific. (If you start hearing fireworks here in the U.S., it’s over.) After that, gridironflow.com/deke will get you $50 off. Either way, it’s a great deal. Though, obviously, this week is better than next.
And if you’re in the mood for a blockbuster summer movie-style trailer, check out this ultra-wide-screen (942 x 305-pixel) 9MB QuickTime movie. (Yes, it’s a trailer for a piece of software. Clearly, these are the end times No, I’m serious.
And definitely let me know what you think. I haven’t been this bullish about a new piece of graphics and design software in . . . well, gosh, it’s been a while.
