Annnnnnnnnd scene. We’re done with this thread now folks. Thanks for coming along on the ride. Make sure you stop by our new downloads page to check out a ton of 1PT.Rule goodies for you life!
The return of Adam Nielsen brings us to discuss our opinions on a couple of listener questions. Tony from Illustrate Omaha asks “How do you educate a client about your process without it all going over their heads?” and Mig Reyes has wondered, “What’s the value in getting included in books? For newer designers, what are tips on getting in?”
We also stop for three minutes to review a student portfolio site by Geoff Thibeau.
After the recording, we had so much energy left that we decided to go see the Omaha Royals play some AAA ball, where Nate (dressed as a corn cob) raced previous guests Tom Nemitz (in a beer suit) and Robert Maguire (wearing a very manly steak outfit) right in the middle of the second inning in front of a crowd of thousands. And cob wins!
Are we on- or off-track? Let us know in the comments below.
Insert blog post here? Today’s comic is important. You’ll want to jot this one down in your memory banks. Like Sauron after Helm’s Deep, vengeance will be swift and terrible. Eventually. This became a very, very long story, and will wrap up tomorrow, and after that I think we’re going back to normal for a bit. Because there have been happenings in the design world that I’ve missed — jokes that now will never be! Rock.
I feel like I should have something meaningful to say about design here, but I’m kind of tapped out today. I’ve sort of resigned myself to a Tuesday/Thursday/Friday schedule until mid-August. I’ve just begun work on my second children’s book and the schedule for personal projects (ie: this comic) has to adjust accordingly, at least until a new window opens up in a few weeks.
So here’s your Tuesday comic!
Donovan plunges into some oldie-but-goodie books this week, starting with the you-probably need-to-read-just-because-you’re-a-designer Cheese Monkeys by Chip Kidd. D wanted to preface this by saying that it’s a work of fiction, and so he felt like he had to hold it to those standards, which, as a category, also includes these works. So, as before, know your bar. We’ll be back soon with Donovan’s take on Kidd’s sequel, The Learners.
