So much to know, so little time

I am extremely proud to announce the launch of Design Facts, a platform for sharing the inspiring, shocking, passionate, brilliant, revolutionary, carefully crafted and relatively young history of our craft, all in bite-sized servings.

Launch Design Facts

Design Facts has been a true labor of love and I could not have done it without the coding genius of my good friend and talented developer, James Walton. For more information and to see other images, visit the Design Facts project on my site.

Best Press Photos of 2015

Amidst the heaping mound of ‘best of 2015’ noise on the internet right now, I found myself caught up and captivated by the collection of ‘Best Press Photos of The Year 2015’ posted on Design You Trust. Some are humorous while some are sad or even disturbing. Looking at the whole, it makes me so appreciative of the comparatively trouble-free world we live in here on our little patch of earth.

The SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket lifts off over Cocoa Beach, Fla., at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Monday, December 21, 2015. The rocket, carrying several communications satellites for Orbcomm, Inc., is the first launch of the rocket since a failed mission to the International Space Station in June.

Branding the Razorfish Global Creative Summit

In the fall of 2015, I was asked to name and brand the Razorfish Global Creative Summit. The brief mentioned this year’s theme was focused on the culture of startups. With only a few days to get a first round presentation together, I had to move quickly. After some research and sketching, I landed on the name, “Proto;” a prefix that by definition means, ‘first’ or ‘precursor’ — and also a word that inherently has some nice geometry to work with.

You can view additional images on the Proto project page.

New in my bookshelf - Lance Wyman: The Monograph

So pleased with this standout volume from Unit Editions. Lance Wyman: The Monograph showcases the extensive career of a truly prolific graphic designer.

From the publisher:

This monograph is the first major publication devoted to Lance Wyman’s entire output. It showcases the achievements of a long and productive career, from his early work for General Motors, through his iconic designs for the Mexico 68 Olympics, to the Minnesota Zoo and his more recent projects.
