nick 4.0

So what’s with the nick 4.0? It’s version 4.0 of me. Today I turn 40. The BIG 4-OH. But you know what is funny? I don’t feel “40”. I don’t look “40” (well at least I don’t think I do). Age really is just a number. And I’ve decided that after a pre-midlife crisis, that my life … Read more nick 4.0

But I’ve always said, “there’s no such thing as a graphic design … Read more Monday Fun: Graphic Design Emergency, Part II

Monday Fun: Graphic Design Emergency.

Graphic design is a profession filled with deadlines. Many of them arrive too quickly, no matter how much time we as designers are given on a project. But I’ve always said, “there’s no such thing as a graphic design emergency.” And in my decade plus of experience, I’ve never seen a reason or project that … Read more Monday Fun: Graphic Design Emergency.
