Under Construction

It has been a while since I have graced these digital pages with any words. As you may have noticed, if you are a regular reader, the sites look and feel has changed. In an effort to step up my game, I have purchased a new WordPress template. This is due to a promise I […]

Oh Brother 2!

Oh Brother 2!

My brother is at it again, I’ll explain in a bit! My brother in the past had taken my blog, reformatted it in Indesign, designed it up, resourced all of the pictures and published me a one-off book, a collection of all my writings if you will. It was too cool. If you are new to […]

Oh Brother!

Oh Brother!

I’m not easily surprised, but yesterday I got a pleasant and long awaited surprise. My brother has been telling me that he has my birthday present almost ready for the last couple of months. My birthday was in December and I just got it yesterday, but it was worth the wait. Like I said I […]

Graphic Quotes Too

Graphic Quotes Too

As we get closer to the holidays, we start to run around like our Christmas turkeys with our heads cut off. Grabbing gifts and hustling to Christmas parties, visiting families, and then heading back to work to pay for the gifts we spent too much on in the first place. Take some time, chill out […]

Graphic Quotes

After looking up quotes for the last blog I posted “Pressed for Time” I realized how much I missed quotes. I missed reading through them, rolling them around in my brain, squeezing every last bit of meaning from them. So I looked again, this time instead of just posting quotes I went one better and […]

Form vs. Function vs. Flawed

Form vs. Function vs. Flawed

The old argument, form vs. function. Do you make it look good or work better. As a designer I am faced with this question everyday at my job. Yes it looks good, but does it communicate. Yes it communicates, but it looks like ass. In the middle somewhere is the perfect balance, it may slide […]

Just My Type

Just My Type

Fonts! I love them, I can’t get enough of them. I see them on the street, on menus and taxis, on billboards and the internet, we are surrounded by them and without even knowing it, you are making mental notes of which ones you like and which ones you don’t. In this over saturated visual […]

Planets I Have Been To…

Planets I Have Been To…

Don’t worry I’m not going crazy and I haven’t figured out how to traverse great distances…yet. But I have figured out how to make my photos from trips more interesting. I just got bored of the whole snapshot thing that I thought I would try something new. At first I would take panoramas. This was […]

Hidden Meaning

Hidden Meaning

Just today I was looking at a logo that I have seen over a hundred times. I have seen it in every possible light and application. I grew up looking at this logo and honestly just today I noticed something I never noticed before. It was the Hartford Whalers logo from the NHL, the team […]

The People in my head

The People in my head

Okay, I don’t really have people in my head, and I’m not crazy, no multiple personalities here. But I do have a whole party of characters in my head. I love them and know them intimately. I care for them, nurture them and give them life with the plots and story lines I dream up. […]
