What I’ve Learned From Writing Over 200 Blog Posts

What I’ve Learned From Writing Over 200 Blog Posts

June 14, 2017

The last blog I wrote was my 200th post, I didn’t realize this until I had posted it. I had written a 100th blog post when I crossed that line, but I missed this milestone by one. In the beginning, I started slow and needed to find my footing. My brother had told me I […]

Positively Negative

Positively Negative

May 9, 2017

What is it about being negative that is so hard to shake? It’s like junk food for the social mind. People love to bitch. I have had issues in the past with being pessimistic. I still do. But I try and fight the urge to complain about stuff. But if you talk to my wife […]

Rooms

I used to be more involved in social media. But things change and we get complacent, our priorities shift. It happens to everyone. We see our friends and family less and we tend to become a little more selfish and pull into our own little cocoons. This is normal. But it isn’t a way to live […]

Echoes

Echoes

May 20, 2016

Hello, hello, helloooo… A reverberating sound, a similar image, an event, a traumatic experience, a life lesson. Everything has happened before, history repeats itself, this is a given. We tend to do the same things over and over again. Do we learn from our mistakes? Sometimes. Do we take those lessons and avoid the same […]

My Five

My Five

April 28, 2016

“You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.” – Jim Rohn I like quotes and this one has always been one of my favourites. I thought I would look into the five people I spend most of my time with and see if it lives up to it’s word. […]

Dangerous Youth

Dangerous Youth

March 16, 2016

Do you remember when you were a kid? When I was a kid there was no internet of any kind. I got most of my prepubesent entertainment from being outside, riding my bike, catching bugs and playing sports, I was rarely in the house. My daughter likes to play on her computer, doing stop-motion animations and […]

Who am I? Good Question.

Depends on what time of day you ask me, a father, a designer, a writer. I am a little bit of all of those, and more.

Doug profile-small-600px

Douglas is a Designer/writer/videographer. He is currently working on a number of projects. Some of which have been hinted at in his blog. He has worked everywhere from a global advertising juggernaut to a one person design boutique. He has worked in television, magazine publishing, user experience design, print, radio, outdoor…I could go on but this is an about me section, not my resumé. I write what I like, which is pretty much everything, and as I find time between writing blogs and finish off new projects, I will let you be the first to hear about them.

Douglas Reid Van Voorst

Zombie Square

Douglas is Blond Zombie. He has a thirst for knowledge and a cold beer, best served at the same time if you ask him. He’s got years of stories, rants and a boat load of trivial information that only the nerdiest, niche-iest (is that even a word?) and self deprecating reader could appreciate. Yet he powers on and throws his words into the cyber-void listening closely to hear them hit bottom.

Blond Zombie

Doug is a family man. He has a daughter, a wife and an interesting and diverse extended family whom he loves very much. His experience with loved ones has taught and shaped the person he is, for better or worse. From adoption to new beginnings, fatherhood to tough love, he has either done it or lived through it shaping and adding a pepper of personality to his writing.
