"We are curating the city with our phones."
– Alissa Walker

"I didn’t want to use the tools of now to make something in the future. I wanted to project a literacy in something I’d never seen.”
– Geoff McFetridge

"Storytelling and narrative — it really allows a user and audience to be connected to the thread and big message of what you're doing."
– Jessie Kawata

“If you’re interested in written language, emoji are probably the most profound innovation since the invention of the alphabet.”
– BJ Novak

Sigh. I'm starting out with a simple web project now, really torn apart choosing between MDL and MDC. MDL is discontinued — but MDC is still too early in development, e.g. from what I need it lacks grid system, toolbar, tabs and iconography.

Weekend assignment: Take the #designcensus16 before it closes December 16th. Google and AIGA are pleased to announce the first annual Design Census—an open and collaborative resource for understanding the complex economic, social, and cultural factors shaping the design practice today. It is free and open to everyone, and its goal is to empower the design community to take charge of its professional development and happiness.

The best way for attendees to channel all the inspiration from #SPAN16 LA, is to roll up their sleeves and get their hands dirty (at least we think so). Our morning workshop sessions focused on type design with Jeremy Mickel, and the art of designing by hand and eye with woodworkers Jim Tolpin and George Walker. Take a look!

The URL that this expands to has Q_SocialSource=twitter as a query parameter. Maybe it should expand to a G+ url so that the stats are accurate? Or do you guys internally convert "twitter" to G+?

Also, sending this to our designers. :)

Hope the next redesign won't be modeled after a preschool daycare. Maybe something a bit more adult.
