FOUR GUESSES again this week. And, again, all four are correct. Last week’s Whatzit is the curled tail of a chameleon. Elizeth Eck says it’s a “veiled chameleon.” I’m not gonna argue that…sounds like she knows her lizards.
Here’s this week’s Whatzit. Whaddaya think?
HAVE AN IDEA for the Whatzit? Just send Ed a quick email at email@example.com and we’ll do what we can to stump others!

Newcomers to the Henninger Helpful Hint may not be aware that one of the services I offer on my weekly blog is the “freevaluation.” For those who have been following for a while, you’re invited, too!
It’s your chance to submit a page or pages for review.
When I post your page, I offer some thoughts on the design, along with suggestions on how to improve the look and/or the approach.
It’s a way for you to get some feedback on your work, with the purpose of helping you improve as a designer.
Over the past few years, I’ve evaluated at least a hundred or so pages (including those above) on the blog…and I’m eager to do the same for you.
Just send in your pages (preferably as jpg files, but PDFs will do, too) with a quick note. I’ll post your submission(s) on Ed Henninger’s Blog, along with some insights on improving your work. Others may also submit comments.
Send your pages to me at edh@henninger consulting .com.
