take pride in your work

I’ve completed the identity and printing for American Pride Landscaping. A big thanks goes to Erik for being a great client (and now friend). I’m glad he let me have some fun with the back of the card. The name of his business made a whole lot more sense when I discovered that he flies […]

i like that idea

Nash equilibrium – I found this one in a Wired article about traffic & congestion, even though the original theory referred to games: In game theory, the Nash equilibrium (named after John Forbes Nash, who proposed it) is a solution concept of a game involving two or more players, in which each player is assumed […]

people are interesting

My friend Bryan has updated his site with a lot of great new photos. I’m particular mesmerized by the set, Rostros, 2008. photo credit: Bryan Larrick He’s also got some good samples up on his Flickr stream.

Words with the Sounds

I made a discovery last night after I downloaded the Nine Inch Nails new album, The Slip. Apparently the mp4 format tracks have embedded lyrics and track art (yes, individual track art, not one single album graphic). I wasn’t even aware the iPhone had this capability.

No Other Way

Well, GotVMail, you did it. You nailed a successful viral video campaign. I’ve heard some people say companies can’t “do” viral, but they can. Viral videos are not just made by random people, kids in their rooms, or made accidentally. How did GotVMail do it? They took a big risk. And that risk is named […]

So the new Nine Inch Nails album, The Slip, is out. You can purchase from the iTunes Store. Or you can download for in a variety of formats from the NIN album site. For free. Based on his music moves these last couple years, I think Trent Reznor meant to create Rage Against the Machine, […]

Well, this is exactly what Michael Arrington over at Techcrunch is proposing with his ‘Dead Simple $200 Tablet‘ (careful that link crashed Firefox […]

ordering icons

I’ve noticed that many iPhone owners leave their icon arrangement in it’s factory setting position on the home screen. This is fine if you don’t install any applications or bookmarks. What I’ve found that is very effective for me is to organize my home screens into these categories: my most essential and frequently accessed bookmarks […]

gotta get organizized

Travis Bickle: One of these days I gotta get myself organizized. Betsy: Organizized? Dont you mean organized? Travis Bickle: No, organizized. It’s a joke. Betsy: Oh, like those signs that says, “Thimk”. – from Taxi Driver, featuring Robert DeNiro

You need a new contractor

A few weeks ago I told a client of 6 years, that I could no longer update their website. I explained to her that I didn’t have to time to give them the top quality service I like to give to my clients. I wasn’t comfortable with giving them answers like, “I’ll post the updates […]
