Speaking as a Coloradite, a member of a non-profit-come-in -and-meet-with-us and a general American, is there anything yo9u could do better than beer? Puma, the athletic company, doesn't think so...so they launched a new brew to go with their new line-up.

You see the poster at the top of the blog, now see the poster on a wall in NYC. And in process in Bryce's sketchbook. And read about his process:
I designed this poster for a lecture on the Art of Process that Rama and I will be presenting for the Art Directors Club of Denver on February 18th. I wanted photography to portray each of us as if we were two hours shy of a serious ass kicking. I figured that if we were going to be discussing the creative process that it would only be appropriate to exemplify us as slightly defeated, while simultaneously posed in a stance of empowerment with clearly absent facial features.
I have included some of the process work involved in creating the design:
1. The gathered reference of the design. I looked at a lot of Diane Arbus.
2. Above is the sketchbook page that I did all handwritten type within.
The presentation is February 18th at 7:30 pm at the RMCAD Auditorium. Should be mad fun!
Big Ups To Murphy Paul for the help on the photo shoot.
How cool is that guy to not only agree to come and speak with colleague Rama Allen, but to fully embrace the art and process of getting the word out?! And now, if you had a chance to sponsor some print for this, are you kicking yourself? Next time, eh what?
Quote and images from Bryce Wymer's Website.
Just for the sake of eye candy. Oh yeah, that and he's coming to Denver with Creative Director Rama Allen to chat about process in 3 DAYS, so get your tickets here and now.

This is partly a worse case scenario meant to be humorous and somewhat fear-inducing. I tend to see a ton of really cool opportunity there. Isn't that why we have designers in the first place, to avoid this confusion.

Way back in time, a time called the 80's, HBO was a pretty big thing that came in your box. Outside that box was a tiny little world with LEDs, Chrome, Model Makers and big hair. It was a time where you had to sing the action. Come back in time and see computers that you had to run code on to actually get them to do anything. VIA Gizmodo.

THE HAITI POSTER PROJECT seeks limited edition sets of posters from artists, designers and design firms from around the world. The donated posters will be sold online to raise money for Doctors Without Borders. As designers, we have the collective ability to do what we love, AND to create a difference. THE HAITI POSTER PROJECT has been conceived as a collective effort by the design community to unite and effect change through our work. In order for this project to be successful, we are counting on designer participation. Our goal is to raise at least:
$1,000,000 FOR DOCTORS WITHOUT BORDERS
PLEASE HELP SPREAD THE WORD.

Let me be completely frank: I'm afraid of most c-stores. I find them to be sketchy, dim, dirty, and filled with unsavory smells, looks and people. I will only go in one if I'm on a very, very, very long road trip and my only other restroom options are large plants. But, Cumberland Farms may have me second-guessing my c-store aversion. They have totally redesigned their logo, their store layout, their philosophy and their online presence. You can become a fan of their "chill zone" on Facebook, watch YouTube videos of their new flavors and actually provide suggestions for improved quality on their website. A C-store that focuses on c-store things like dairy products, frozen drinks and coffee, but without all the c-store grossness. Check out their new online digs here.
Design by The Moseley Group.

Best Described by the originator:
The full cost was for a package of poster board at Staples — which is what, for me, felt remarkable about the run, it was dirt cheap, and took no time at all. But how did this come to be? I worked for a few years at Simon's Stamps, a custom rubber stamp shop in Massachusetts where they have a gorgeous 150-watt laser engraver, and 95% of the time they're making interoffice memo stamps on it. While employed by them, I started sticking around after work so as to figure out what else I could burn with it — no one else really knew what to do with the machine outside of running rubber and sign plastic through, using the automated program, with the material presets that came with it. The boss was hoping to expand his product base, and I sort of shifted my job from sales and typesetting to ordering material samples, making stuff and showing everyone else how to do what I was doing. After I moved on to a traditional design job at a newspaper, I remained with the stamp company as a part time consultant, with the provision that I be allowed to come in whenever and use the machine.
Always be on the lookout for your next opportunity.
