Guess what, guess what?! I’m writing a biweekly column for Studio Sweet Studio and it’s launched TODAY! Margot’s Design Dispatch is a digest of all things (you guessed it) design-related. It takes a similar format as my Friday Links posts, but with a little extra snazz (that’s the, uh, highly technical term) for even more fun times. Meg & Tuesday have put a lot of thought into growing their content by putting together an excellent batch of contributors, each with our own specific topic area. Breanna of Moxee writes about self-employment with Be Free, Lance, Elana Schlenker covers all manner of print and publication issues with Pressing Matters, and Mike Smith spotlights bright young talent in the industry with Honor Roll.
This is a day when I would like to kiss the entire Internet. The Fox Is Black has been one of my a-list favorite blogs since I discovered it right around the time I started blogging in 2008. When Bobby announced they were looking for female voices I thought it would be an excellent excuse to keep writing! So there it is: new blog collab! I’ll be posting as much as I can on both blogs, but I hope you’ll look for me over there now too. Thanks to any and all new folks stopping by for the first time today, you are beautiful and your hair smells of sunshine.
My plan, it is working you guys! I’m doing it. I’m dooooooing it.
…..omgoshthiswasthebesttime. Thank you everyone for coming, thank you to Heather, Stephanie and Christine for bearing photographic witness of the work (more photos here). Thank you Design Bureau and of course, Angela. Going to hold on to this experience for a long time to come.
I also can’t think of a better way to recoup than to spend time offline w/ family (nieces! How come no one told me how awesome they are?!). In the duration, I’ve switched over to a new host too. Beyond thrilled to have this website running on a spiffed-up system, step one in my plan of upgrades around here…
+ A Bunch of Crock is my favorite Kickstarter project of the week. It’s a poster show by Pakistani-American designer Safwat Seleem in reaction to the current political landscape and the rhetoric that surrounds it. It’s an incredibly courageous project handled in a tongue-in-cheek way. Bra-freaking-vo for attacking such an inflammatory issue, Safwat. Via Design Work Life.
