Let’s get the full disclosure ickyness out of the way: I’ve got work in Rockport’s recently released Really Good Logos, Explained.

As a result, I’ve decided that January’s KERNSPIRACY gathering will be our 1st Annual New Year’s Junk Swap. I’ll be bringing along a few design-related items and books that I [...]
