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.

HOWie has Arrived in Atlanta

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

Rancho Diseño XII? Fabuloso!

Rancho Desiño Fabuloso: Design Ranch is the experiential opposite of the TED-style conferences. Here, there is no audience; only participants. Here, you must eave your ego at home, roll up your sleeves, break some nails, stain your shirt, act the fool, and share your fantasies and vulnerabilities.

And now, Neenah has made a new, ongoing investment in the design community by funding this scholarship. No legacy could make me prouder.

A Bonfire, Double-Sided Posters, and Custom Sketchbooks at Design Camp

AIGA Minnesota once again had a great event in Design Camp. Having everybody at least two hours from their homes, and no city to disperse into after the speakers are out for the day, creates a more intimate conference experience than most. There was also some pretty solid items for people to take home. Double-sided 18″ […]
