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. Neenah Paper gave out a few limited edition posters as usual, including the beautiful […]
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. Above is the result. Large mix-and-match characters printed on convert Board™, part of the Neenah […]
HOW Design Live officially kicked off the largest design event of 2016 in Atlanta, Georgia, yesterday morning. Even though other engagements forced me to miss the opening of the Exhibit Hall last night (usually the craziest hour of the conference, so maybe my sanity was the better for it?), I did get a good look at it […]

And I am touched to think how proud my parents—who were my first mentors—would be.” Tom retired after 35 years ...
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″ […]
AIGA Minnesota’s Design Camp is about halfway complete, and once again it has not disappointed. When the view from the cafeteria at Madden’s on Gull Lake looks like the above photo I took at dinner, it’s really hard not to be a in good mood. The first night started off with a cocktail hour just […]
AIGA Minnesota’s Design Camp is one of the best design conferences of the year – location, people, speakers and breakout sessions to rival any others, but the swag bags at registration this year – the best I have ever received. A deck of cards, drink ticket, chapstick, and a sweatshirt instead of the typical t-shirt […]

A designer can play with interesting content, cool artifacts , a good, ready-made story, and (usually) a client who values smart, effective art and design. The Museum of Danish America in Elk Horn, Iowa, is one such client. This delightful ...
