Hi! So as of a week or so ago, this place looks different. This is the first in series of upgrades I will be rolling out over the next few months (next up, responsive and retina support). Along with the obvious design upgrades and updated information for now, one notable change is that I’m starting a newsletter! Mostly because I think it will be a really great way to engage with people in a more meaningful way isn’t happening with most blogs these days. My aim is to send you a note every couple of weeks with green thoughts, and links to other’s content that’s grabbed me for whatever reason. Of course, there’ll be the usual new-y bits too. So excited about this medium though, when done right, I’ve noticed actual anticipation for the right emails. Which is far and beyond those spammy, tired promo emails we’ve all come to hate at one time or another, even if they were appreciated at first.
(or scroll down to the footer, if you prefer).
Also, for the locals, just a reminder that I’m doing a talk at the Michigan Ave Apple Store on Tuesday! 7 o’clock. Since this is a casual event, open and free to all, and will have plenty of non-graphic designers in proximity, I’m going to be taking a more general approach with my words. Through a series of short films, I want to talk about what makes things influential, and the different ways to make and create more influence in your own projects. Also, who doesn’t love a free picture show on the big screen? Roll out the red carpet, and byo popocorn. Apple’s not allowed to offer these things, unfortunately, but we can pretend. Hope to see you there!
