This simple contract for freelance creatives.

A really interesting graphic of how cable news covered the Comey hearing in their captions on the bottom of the screen (aka chyrons or lower-thirds).

The guys over at Standards Manual (you might know them from printing the old NASA design guide) just announced a new book on the EPA's design manual from 1977 and it look b-e-a-utiful. They just raised $169k on Kickstarter. If you're a graphic designer or super into branding like I am, you're probably really giddy right now (you're not alone!).

Books I've read these past few months: Tiny Beautiful Things by Cheryl Strayed (this book is so important!), What is the Bible? by Rob Bell, and Matisse by Jean Selz

The only way you’ll find out if you ‘have it in you’ is to get to work and see if you do.
