Mini-Disc Fever
Posted at 10:09 PM

I’ve got a bad case of Mini-Disc fever. More about the complications of this ailment in the new gazette.

I’m desperately trying to align the input department with the gazette archive protocol. Times are tough right now. Soon.

Spent the whole Saturday working on the 2001-2002 Snowboarder media kit. It’s an exciting project. Full color, spot UV, fabricated construction, edge cracking solutions…John from Continental has been amazingly patient and helpful. I’m a greenhorn in the “real-life” printing world. Gocco action is one thing…web presses and Heidelbergs area another. I have a hard time signing off on bluelines. No matter how much we have check the type, photos and general layouts…I’m always freaked out someone missed something in the process. These budgets are a tad bigger than 12 bucks worth of Kino paper. I love the responsibility.

+ John brought me like 100 paper swatchbooks for a complete paper library. What an amazing resource. Compliments of Continental Litho. I’m getting fluent with the paper properties. One thing though: They have nothing on the French swatchbooks. Nothing. Todd and the boys at CSA in Minneapolis design the fuckin’ best swatchbooks on the planet…hands down. They are religious artifacts to me.
