Meet Aaron & Jordan - Support Ninjas
Aaron and Jordan radiate Zen and calm in the office. There's not a question they can't handle, or a problem they can't solve - usually in under 4 minutes (and those are ninja minutes, which are swift and cool; and by cool, I mean totally sweet). These two have been friends for a long time, allowing them to communicate almost telepathically as they sweep aside problems with ease - kind of like Dr. Phil before he sold-out.

Conceptual Development of this Design
Read a a bit about what James has to say about the development of this design below.
I wanted to design something bright and striking for the team at the Tuts+ Network which had me diving into sci-fi material from the 70s and 80s, most notably were old Omni Magazine covers. Omni had a way of creating interesting imagery for their covers that were somehow vague enough to leave a lot to your imagination. This is the chord I wanted to strike with the poster, I even modeled the type after Omni's title.
After several different concepts and hours of development, one version involved a colorful exploding astronaut, the poster finally settled on the version seen here . . . the space medusa I lovingly nicknamed 'La Femme II' after my previous poster.
