It’s pretty much design bonanza week in Chicago right now. Between the HOW Design Conf, the Show ‘N Tell Show, and Creative Mornings, not to mention numerous meet-ups, art shows, and after-parties, my dance card is pretty well booked up for the rest of the week.
I’m still a little buzzing from this gender bias (see the post below) discussion too, I haven’t interacted so thoroughly on the internet like that at all before. I’m pretty happy with the results and yesterday I found this excellent article that actually has a really great solution to the problem: Mentorship.
+ I’m a MASSIVE fan of Dutch design (well the whole darn country is majorly kickass to be honest) but I received an email from The Submarine Channel linking to their profiles of several legendary Dutch names (like Droog & Wim Crouwel). Go, child, and be schooled in their mystical ways. And once you’re done, sign this international petition to stop their government from cutting arts funding. They have 30 years of some of the best government-supported culture in the world and I am sad to hear that it is under threat.
*Ack. So the embed code isn’t working, lame. Vimeo let me go through that whole process without telling me that I didn’t have embedding permission. All is not lost, I’ve emailed to see if I can get it. Stay tuned!
See you hip cats on Monday!
