Creative Mornings NYC

11th November 2012

Last month I was thrilled to speak at the Creative Mornings Benefit in Brooklyn, alongside Jason Santa Maria. By way of record, I’ve pulled together videos of both talks plus my slides and a few thoughts in this quick post.

Make something you love

1st November 2012

After my trip to Minnesota I travelled straight to Brooklyn. I never need a reason to visit my favourite borough, but I was especially excited to attend my third Brooklyn Beta as this time it would be as an insider, supporting my Fictive Kin.

AIGA Design Camp

30th October 2012

Earlier this month I spent four days in remote Nisswa, Minnesota where I delivered a keynote to around 350 designers, alongside Pentagram’s Paula Scher, book designer and Batman author Chip Kidd, and heroes of illustration The Heads of State. It was a breath of fresh air, and it made me think again about what I present and to whom I present it.

Bauhaus at The Barbican

25th July 2012

Just a quick, hastily-written post urging any UK designers to brave the Olympichaos and catch Bauhaus: Art as Life at The Barbican in London before it ends in mid-August. I’m somewhat obsessed, so I popped along yesterday, and was not disappointed.

A brief update

4th July 2012

It’s been a busy few months and I’ve barely had any time to write. As a result, a number of things worth journalling have slipped through the net. To satisfy future me when he returns to this archive, here’s a quick overview regarding Fictive Kin, my presentations, New Adventures, and an award!

Please update your RSS

4th July 2012

For a couple of years folks have been reporting broken links from my RSS feed, packed with all that Feedburner UTM shit. I’ve been unable to replicate the issue, but thanks to some kind readers I’ve finally realised they’re using a feed I retired in early 2010 and can no longer access. So, if you’re using the /colly/frJd/ feed, please ditch it, and replace with the /colly/WraZ/ version I’ve provided here for over two years. You’ll find that all links suddenly work like a charm. I’ll also make sure full posts are available in the feed when I get a chance. Thank you, and apologies for the disruption.

When we build

24th January 2012

On the morning of Thursday 10th November 2011, I was excited about closing the day’s talks at Build. Then, just before lunch, something happened. Something unexpected and incredible, care of Wilson Miner.

Relly’s New Adventures video

22nd January 2012

Less than 24 hours after the second New Adventures conference day wrapped, we received an unexpected gift from one of our biggest supporters, Relly Annett-Baker. It’s a wonderful short video that really sums up the whole day

New Adventures newspaper 2012

22nd January 2012

Right now, I’m resting hard after a very successful second New Adventures in Web Design conference, and I’ll write an overview of this overwhelming experience soon. For now, I just wanted to say a little about this year’s newspaper.
