“ ‘If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?’ Whenever the answer has been ‘No’ for too many days in a row, I know I need to change something.” — Steve Jobs
The tweet here is probably something along the lines of “I’m hanging up my podcasting spurs.” Of course, brevity has never really been a strong suit of mine, so I’ll elaborate below. But if you just want the quick hit, there it is. These old spurs, I am a’ hangin’ them up.
First, we’d like to thank everyone who’s shown their support to 36 Point for the past year and a half. Second, we’d like to blow your minds with our exciting announcement that we’re transitioning to an all-hobo format over here. Beginning this morning with our first Hobo-Designer-1PT.Rule, and continuing soon with only-on-the-train-tracks recordings of future Reflex Blue Shows, we’re sure you’ll be as excited for this change as we are.
To celebrate and make it official, we commissioned leading logo and identity designer Drew Davies of Oxide Design to create our new mark. “Knocking it out of the park” would be an understatement. “Everyone said Cooper Black was dead, and look at it now,” Davies said of the redesign project. “Hobo is here to stay.”
Drew Davies’ work has appeared in Logo Lounge 2, 3, 4 and 5, as well as two upcoming Master Library books from that series, Communication Arts (six times), AIGA 365 (twice), Print’s Regional Design Annual, HOW Magazine, and he has served as a judge to many regional and national design competitions, including the Communication Arts Design Annual in 2004, and serves as the Design Director for AIGA’s Design for Democracy.
To celebrate our love and friendship with all creatives, 36 Point is pleased to bring you our newest desktop wallpaper design. Featuring the popular Hobo Designers characters from the never-bitter 1PT.Rule, we think you’ll agree that this is the hap-hap-happiest wallpaper around!
Head on over to our downloads section for this and much, much more!
Hey-o everyone! I feel like we’re going to need a 450-pixel [UPDATE: 520-pixels!] wide graphic/logo for the great pizza hunt articles. If only I knew a group of designers who were participating who wouldn’t mind making something awesome with no hope of reward aside from the respect of your fellow man. In fact, I think I might be willing to do some reviewer-pics, 1PT.Rule-style, as a thanks.
NEXT STOP: Sgt. Peffer’s, Tuesday, September 8, 5:30 p.m. Map? Website. Well known for being directly across the street from the legendary Omaha bar, The Homy Inn, Sgt. Peffer’s is the default choice of many a mid-town pizza eater and drunkard. It was here we dined last Spring with Justin Ahrens, Steve Hartman, and Christine Taylor, on the craziest party night in my recent life. Perhaps a repeat?
Also, as promised, after the jump I’ve collected all of the Zio’s Reviews from our previous outing.
