Review: Jessica Hische & David Downton

Books play a big role in my life, especially ones that inspire, induce jealousy or teach. Some designers refuse to look at ANY design books at all (fear of unintentionally ripping off work?—agreed, plagiarism is nobody's friend). My purpose is to be aware of certain trends, to give myself that badly needed kick in the pants when I see brilliant work, and simply because I never want to stop learning and doing new things. I thrive pushing myself beyond my comfort zone. So it's no surprise in grade school, when my teacher wrote in my report card: NANCY GETS BORED EASY. What the heck?

Welcoming Ideas

Welcome to 2.0! It's been a long time coming and I'm so glad you could join me. I hope to grow this blog with interesting things, sharing a variety of subjects related to my love of brilliant logos, typography, packaging, books and design (or some combination thereof), projects I'm involved in and maybe even a few surprises. Also a big shout-out to the expertise of web developer and teacher (I learned tons!), Catherine Winters over the past several months getting everything working smoothly.
