Where’d You Go?

As you’ve probably noticed, I’ve been taking a bit of a break lately. But there’s some exciting stuff coming up in the not too distant future.

Excuses, Excuses

Despite the temptations of ever-warming weather, I had to throw most of my free time towards a new presentation for An Event Apart and @media last week, and on a gameplan for teaching in the fall. Well, that and sometimes I just don’t have much of anything to say. Rather than drop posts on here that I don’t care about, I decided to take a few weeks away from this site to recharge.

The New Stuff


Last week, along with six other lucky souls, I was elected to the AIGA/NY Board of Directors. I’m seriously humbled to be asked, and also very excited to work with the local community of designers. I’m already brainstorming some interesting activities and events I can help organize, but if you’re a designer in NY and there’s something you want to see, drop me a line.


In case you’ve missed it, I’ve been working alongside the talented group at Small Batch on a new service called Typekit. We’ve been working with type designers and foundries to bring real fonts to the web, in a legal way that benefits everyone. This promises to be big fun. Follow along with the blog and Twitter for updates, or sign up and we’ll let you know when it’s live.

Lastly, somewhat thematically related, look for a long-teased type-related side project of mine to be launched in the coming weeks. Until then, I’m going to get back in the saddle and on to some more regular updates.
