On a client call the other day, I was speaking with one of my clients I’ve worked with for a long time now. Let’s call her Leah. She’s gotten into … Continue reading Am I Fraud?
It’s been almost a year since I blogged last. While I could feel shame or guilt or .. embarrassment about it, I have no room for it because this past year has been incredible.
I’ve hired employees (an assistant/project manager and junior designer to be exact!), broke all of my own records of business-y greatness, made 3x the amount of income than I did for the last 2 years, moved to another stage in The Kubrick Project, created one of my most favorite things of all time: the PF rebrand, adopted a kitten, actually took MULTIPLE VACATIONS, and the list goes on.
All of that is to say that the blogging slumber is over.

I *should* be working out right now. I don’t have time to be opinionated this morning. I’ve got 45 minutes of workouts, Kubricking, client work, and carpet cleaners that are … Continue reading C’mon Sally’s. Get a better brand voice.
You guys. I realized something epic this week: It’s been 10 years since I’ve been designing. With a degree. From a top art school. 10. TEN. ten. It’s actually been … Continue reading The BIG 1-0
Things have been a little challenging lately. And by lately, I mean from May till about September 30th. If I’m being honest, let’s include January, February, March and April into … Continue reading The Blogging Absence
Months ago I wrote about how KFC rebranded, and in doing so, resurrected Colonel Sanders — the role played by Darrel Hammond. Seems like I wasn’t the only person cocking … Continue reading KFC and The Changing Colonels
Here’s why I don’t even want to write about Uber’s rebrand: because it’s a tacky example of overhyped AND EMPTY attempt at “design thinking” to people who don’t think. Tell … Continue reading I’mma stop you right there Uber.
