My friend Aaron puts on some really great food related events. He often asks me to design some weird things for them. The most recent is this poster for his Bacon & Beer event taking place at the House of Blues in Boston on May fourth.
With all the excitement of my new teaching position I almost forgot to mention that I am having another Fab.com sale. It’s already started and lasts just a couple more days. The sale has some new designs and some old designs, all at highly-discounted prices. Check it out!
I’ve been enjoying James Victore‘s Q&A Tuesday series on Youtube. Today’s question came from a designer who felt that they were at a crossroads in their career. The person had a steady design job, but felt it wasn’t getting him to the places he wanted to be or helping him to do the kind of work he wanted to do. He asked what James Victore would do in this situation. His answer? 1. Freak out. 2. Jump.
