We were in Grand Central Terminal, as judges for a British Airways contest.  If you've ever been in some of the side halls in Grand Central, the lighting makes it rather "golden" which is why everything looks so yellow.Photo: My friends Liz Strauss, founder of SOBcon, and Barry Moltz, author of several business books.

Dan Ambrosio (left), my Editor at Wiley, and David Langton (right), a design firm principal and my co-author.Photo: Page layouts for the Visual Marketing book.  Because it's a "vizthink" book where the visual elements are inegral to the information being conveyed, the actual layout of the pages was very very important.  My co-author, David Langton, who is a principal with New York design firm Langton Cherubino, took control of laying out the pages for the publisher -- that's very unusual.  Usually the publisher handles that, but we weren't leaving anything to chance.Photo: My upcoming book, Visual Marketing.  The front cover was based on a stock image the publisher acquired from iStockphoto.  It represents a digitized eye.Photo: This is a sign on the wall at the Aileron Institute, located in a secluded rural area outside of Dayton, Ohio.
