Letter to a Junior Designer

NewImageCennydd Bowles at one of the best blogs ever, A List Apart, made a post today entitled Letter to a Junior Designer.

“I admit it: you intimidate me. Your work is vivid and imaginative, far superior to my woeful scratchings at a similar age. The things I struggle to learn barely make you sweat. One day, you’ll be a better designer than me.

But for now, I can cling to my sole advantage, the one thing that makes me more valuable: I get results. I can put a dent in cast-iron CEO arguments. I can spot risks and complications months in advance. In the wager that is design, I usually bet on the right color. People trust me with their stake.

So, if you’ll humor me, maybe I can offer a few suggestions to speed you toward the inevitable.”

You’ve have to visit their site to read the whole thing. I may very well be worth your time…

Mouse taxidermy 1 740x740

I know where my tax refund is going! Firebox has a complete mousey taxidermy kit that has everything a budding taxidermist needs for only $50.49. What a great gift idea and fun for the whole family. According to their website, in less than four hours you’ll have your very own happy little mouse and the perfect eccentric talking point for your living room. Yeah, that’s eccentric.

Updated: Deal’s off. Apparently I missed the bit saying that no mousey is included.
