Hello everyone, I’m sorry that it has been a while. I am looking to update this thing and use it as a means to more frequently and with greater eloquence discuss topics of design, advertising, creativity, and my own sources of inspiration. I started writing this post numerous times, in each instance embarking on a [...]

I just came across Ken Deegan on Cosas Visuales. He has a very clean typographic style that appeals to my Swiss/Bauhaus influenced design education.
I am always excited when I navigate to the NYT homepage and find that there is an interactive graphic to supplement the featured article. These “data visualizations” as they are called by researchers, or “information graphics” as they are called by designers, were prolific throughout the presidential campaign, but are still quite useful in everyday [...]
I had the pleasure of attending AIGA’s “new” event format “My Dog and Pony” last night at the Galapagos art space in DUMBO. It’s a neat structure, the speakers are requested to step back in time to one of their company’s pitch deliveries and then re-enact that speech for us, the audience. I saw the [...]

Now, it is a really nice bag, but doesn’t anyone see the irony in getting an extra material thing with a movie about [...]
Hey everyone, I kind of got out of the habit of posting with the end of school. Well, it’s time to get back into the swing of things. I’ve been touring Pennsylvania, hopping from house to house, and as of last week I landed a temporary pad in Brooklyn, NY. I’ve done a few interviews [...]
This week went by in a hurry, beginning on Monday with the Art Directors Club graphic design portfolio review. Malavika Mangeshkumar, Julianne Hamilton, Sarah Scholl and I made the trek up to the city by way of New Jersey transit to partake in a flea market of sorts offering a select group of designers. Visual [...]
In the spirit of signage design on Bainbridge Island, I pulled a couple of images out of a folder on my backup hard drive aptly named “Pre-College.” For my Eagle Scout project (in 2003) I designed a series of signs loosely based in the style of Michael Schwab to direct residents and visitors to local parks. Though I [...]
