Lobster Rolls, HOWie, and Johnny Cupcakes Spinning Vinyl at HOW Design Live

Boston once again played an amazing host to HOW Design Live this week. The event always goes by so quickly, but I was able to catch a few things while there – and made it back to Omaha with more design inspiration than I could have imagined. There may have been a few non-design things going […]

  HOW Design Live may have a lot of magic going on this year, but it’s the interactions with people that you remember years later – and that make this gathering of thousands of creatives such a great experience to look forward to. Unfortunately, “Classic Man” did not make the return trip from last year. […]

Lotería and a Minneapolis mural signify the closing of another great AIGA Design Conference

The 2017 AIGA Design Conference wrapped up Saturday night in Minneapolis. As usual, the event seemed to fly by, but as a day or two pass, it starts to hit me with how much was witnessed, learned, and enjoyed. Adam Turman spent a large amount of time in the back of the exhibit hall doing a custom illustration […]

A UNIQUE Market and a Studio of Fire at the AIGA Design Conference

Directly behind the Neenah booth in the exhibit hall was Studio on Fire and Hamilton Wood Type & Printing Museum, who had brought in a 2400lb. letterpress machine the size of a twin bed to print on.

Lucky for us, her prophesy of optimism and engagement prevailed over the apocalypse. The End of Times project was hatched by Mary Bruno in December of 2011 in response to the mythic threat of the apocalypse, ...

The Last Days of HOW Design Live – I’m in a Coloring Book, Debbie Millman’s a DJ, and HOWie is Still Missing

HOW Design Live in Atlanta, Georgia looked to come off as a complete success. I may have been stranded for a night in St. Louis due to mechanical issues on the airplane, but all is good, and I made it back safely.

Find Your Selfie at HOW Design Live

Once Neenah Paper found that the booth they had in the Exhibit Hall of HOW Design Live this year was next to the booth of The Dieline, they knew something had to be done in that large empty space between them.

HOW Design Live officially kicked off the largest design event of 2016 in Atlanta, Georgia, yesterday morning.
