1. Sometimes my two favorite people cross paths, Tina Roth Eisenberg and Debbie Millman.

     
  2. I like how this turned out. 

     

  3. Life at the Moment!

    My most favorite thing in the world.

    In my wallet I keep few things like everyone else, a metro card, drivers licence and a debit card. One thing in particular is Debbie Millman’s business card.

    She gave it to me when I met her at the Hillman Curtis Film Series. Debbie is one of my favorite people in the NYC design community. She makes branding fascinating. I can’t not have her card with me at all times. It helps me to know her words of wisdom. 

    After a rough but needed week. I was taken aback at the kindess I was given. It was not expected, but welcomed. Truthfully I needed to leave broadway advertising.

    I must explain that Broadway Advertising has been a valuable asset to me, my first internship and real New York job experience came of this industry. In Broadway it’s not just a poster, it spans to all kinds of advertising at all sizes, the web, mail, merchandise and environments that must all communicate the spirit of a show. Key art must communicate at all points depending on media to have brand recognition to specific shows. With this experience I want to get into branding and identity. Ideally a small studio atmosphere that does a mix of work. In other words I crave variety.      

    Going to Creative Mornings made my day the speaker was Stephen Doyle, and after that I feel re-energized his personal and commercial work is something to look up to! To let you know Creative Mornings is on Kickstarter. Even if you contribute 10 dollars you still get cool shit.  

    Coming up I am going to some great events/concerts. I am going to Digital Dumbo on the 26th. So glad I get to go to this the Brand New Conference which I am a full time volunteer for. Then in October be still my 90s heart! I will see Alanis Morissette at Terminal 5 and I totally know the presale code.  

     

  4. Debbie Millman: Words of Wisdom

    When I’m down this is the best advice:

    “I wish someone had told me that patience and persistence pay-off. I wish that someone had told me to trust my instincts when they warn me to stay away from people that are bad for me. I wish that someone told me that, despite my fears, I would not end up homeless by the time I was 40. I wish that someone told me to get a dog as soon as possible. And most of all, when I was first starting out, I wish that someone had told me not to worry so incessantly; someday, in the far distant future, I would be really really happy.”

  5. "The expense of something is often more of a reflection of someone’s ego than its inherent quality."

    Inspiring Interview with Jen Beckman.

    I said this, along with a few other things (including one most emphatic utterance of fuck), during a recent interview with Debbie Millman, for her wonderful Design Matters series. Listen to the podcast on Design Observer. (via jenbee)
