Here's what I've been up to and interested in lately…
I had a lot of fun interviewing camiah over on The Better Email blog. Cam and Miah are two of the most creative people I know and they share a lot of insights into that creativity, their collaboration, their email process, and even juggling family life with the demands of a small agency. Definitely worth the read.
This article with Jenn Schiffer is one of the better things I've read online in a long while. She doesn't mince words and tears into the tech world, which feels absolutely necessary these days.
Khoi Vinh makes a great distinction between two commonly seen illustration styles (styles doesn't seem like the right word, but 🤷♂️). I love editorial illustration and think more companies and publications should embrace it to set themselves apart. One of the reasons I was sad to see such a backlash to Intercom's recent redesign.
Finally, this profile of polar explorer Henry Worsley is phenomenal, both in content and design. His will and determination was staggering. I can't imagine enduring through the expeditions he undertook.
