Hello everyone,

The past couple of months have been tumultuous to say the least. Long story short, I’m now working for a magazine publishing house after a good recommendation from a friend, which is a reason to always make new connections and to cherish ones that you’ve already got.

Have you ever wanted to pick the brains of your design hero?
As a young designer out of college you realize that there are a ton of information that they did not teach you at school. It’s not that they couldn’t but most of this information is learned through experience.
