Here is a fun design tip you won't find on Pinterest! Everyone knows that a digital camera is a valuable tool for any graphic artist. I've used mine almost daily for the past seven years for tasks ranging from stock photo creation, slide reproduction, and even to send proof copies of my work to clients when my scanner was malfunctioning.
So to be safe when traveling I put my camera in a box and then wrap that box in a pair of sturdy jeans. That's not the helpful tip.
My helpful and fun advice to you is this: Don't throw your entire suitcase full of clothes into the washing machine. If you do, try not to scream when you see your waterlogged camera nestled inside your damp jeans. Because I screamed like a lunatic and almost ruined Christmas.
