Still hammering on that presentation. Putting all the shit into one big PDF! Mr. Jess Gibson, benevolent Final Cut magician, brought over one hell of a video treat, which will be shown as part of my presentation. Thank you, buddy.

Special thanks to all who wrote in offering votes of confidence the last couple days! Very appreciated.

HOOKED ON SUGAR WATER: Coke bottles through the years. One of my vices. (Via Wink, MPLS.)

MANDATORY READING HERE: Ken Leung, the designer of Monocle magazine gets interviewed over at the always great Grain Edit.

“My bookshelves are mainly filled with monographs of all the great modernist graphic designers and typographers.”

Learn something from this guy. I sure have. Beautiful, beautiful magazines.

LOOK AT COOL TYPE, MAKE SOME FRIENDS: Friends of Type. Bookmark that one and get with it. Some cool shit on there.

THERE’S THIS SHOE COMPANY IN THE NORTHWEST…: They called themselves, “Nike.” You might’ve heard if it. Bob Smith sure has, and compiled an image showing “every logo Nike had ever perpetrated” up to 2006, into a nice, colorful, chaotic, frenetic image. Here’s what the hell Bob is talking about.
Some cool stuff in there. Nike. They make shoes.

SPEAKING OF “CHAOTIC” AND “COLORFUL”: That is, if you like “thick line logos” and “orange shit.” That poster is still moving off our shelves! Our “Pretty Much Everything Up Until May 27th, 2009” poster is still VERY MUCH for sale. You need one! Get orange, readers!

FOR CHANCE: Rest in peace, man.

Aaron, you rocked the house, cabin, lodge, whatever. How about that documentary? When will it be available. Also, my 3-year old granddaughter LOVED the Field Notes book, especially the grid pages. Best to Gary. —- joe
