Great perspective on a problem that plagues many agencies.

 

Santiago R. Perez's curator insight, June 13, 2013 10:32 AM

I can totally relate to this essay! Being validated and valued for your work should equate with being compensated for the time spent and the inherent value of the outcome. This is especially true when attempting to achieve simplicity, soemthing that we all know takes a lot of hard work and [complexity].

Mark Strozier's curator insight, June 13, 2013 8:32 PM

I really like the flat design aesthetic. And I like icons.

Here are oodles of free flat icons developed with a nice, consistent color palette. These are great!

I've been trying to come up with really good, representational web design icon, something clever, not too hokey and a bit more than just <../>. If you have any ideas please let me know.

The Letterpress Thrives in an iPad Age

The Letterpress Thrives in an iPad Age | letterpress printing | Scoop.it
On a March evening in Brooklyn, Donatella Madrigal is standing at a Vandercook Universal press, wiping her ink-stained hands on a denim apron.

 

In the past decade, letterpress printers have grown into a thriving community. Many of the most devoted members are graphic designers who, like Madrigal, are seeking an alternative to their digital day jobs. An online group called Ladies of Letterpress, “dedicated to the proposition that a woman’s place is in the print shop,” has nearly 1,500 members (including 50 men) and an annual meeting that draws more than 100 people for a weekend of workshops and schmoozing. “It’s almost like artisanal breadmaking,” says Sarah Schwartz, editor of Stationery Trends magazine, a trade publication. “People are returning to things done by hand, and it’s a very tactile art form.”
