    Das Dopplegänger ist nicht gut.


    I very much enjoyed the Dopplegänger radio story, and I found myself especially enjoying the way it was told!

    Ira Glass is Jad Abumrad is Radio


    Wow! I really did find the content in their talks compelling. The thing that struck me the most was Ira’s bit on “Good taste” and how it discourages. I had read that quote many times before, however I never knew it was from Ira or what medium it was talking …

    The Five Elements of the Face


    “Circle, Square, Triangle, Line, and Dot. That’s what they tell you at least, however you don’t need dots, you can just use a short line instead. So we are left with Circle, Square, Triangle, and Line…. We have to minimize to improve the synthesis process. We can’t add infinite detail …

    Four Napkins..


    Fourth of July seems to be rained out I thought to myself as I left my grandparents house today. What I shame! I had been swimming in the pool and having a grand old time, that is until the thunder started. My grandmother was carefully drawing something on a Napkin. …

    Design Blitz!



    What better to capture the concept of Rhythm than a brick wall? In my opinion it encapsulates the concept in multiple levels. First the pattern of the bricks themselves repeating over and over, this is the main way in which it captures the idea. The next is the variation …
