Nothing compared to the MIT disco floor and probably about 100 times the budget. But hey, adobe did it and it didn't crash, that's pretty good.

Stefan Sagmeister's list: Things I have learned in my life so far.


Complaining is silly. Either act or forget.

Thinking life will be better in the future is stupid. I have to live now.

Being not truthful works against me.

Helping other people helps me.

Organizing a charity group is surprisingly easy.

Everything I do always comes back to me.

Drugs feel great in the beginning and become a drag later on.

Over time I get used to everything and start taking it for granted.

Money does not make me happy.

Traveling alone is helpful for a new perspective on life.

Assuming is stifling.

Keeping a diary supports my personal development.

Trying to look good limits my life.

Worrying solves nothing.

Material luxuries are best enjoyed in small doses.

Having guts always works out for me.

This is the your earth under El Niño.

This drunk girl was trying to "save" Ze Frank from an interesting conversation with two of the other conference panelists. She slurred in my ear, "I was trying to save his ass."


I said, "Wait, what? Trying to save 'HSAS'?"


She didn't get it.

Cover concept direction.

From Stefan Sagmeister's presentation... a design project (I believe done by a student) that made him happy. They put blank speech bubbles on public signs and posters, and went back later to photograph the results. I suppose no one can resist the lure of the speech bubble.

Milton Glaser addresses the AIGA Design Conference on a designer's social responsibility to the community at large.

No eagles were harmed during the photo shoots. Neither was John, the photographer, or the Flag.

John Hockenberry asks Ze Frank a few follow-up questions after his panel.

Senator Barney Frank addresses the main hall. I watched this one from the "Living Room" couches.

Yes, round is a real word.

On a scale of happiness...

Things don't go quite right. My money is on the driver for the remote.

Wendy, Emily, Holly, and Christopher.

Pam was a former board member in AIGA Houston while she was living here. It's great to see friends again! One benefit of these large national conferences.

Stop motion Polaroids™.

Michael Osborne (left, among other things has designed some of the recent "Love" stamps) and Hank Richardson (right, Chair of The Portfolio Center and an AIGA National Board Member) without his signature mustache that he's worn for three decades.

One of the 20/20 presentations highlighted the problems with the $199 logo shops. In this case, they actually paid them to redesign the AIGA logo and in return they received half a dozen or so half-baked solutions.

James is a fellow board member from Austin. He keeps their web in shape. I like him because he's a cool guy and we both love our treo's.

Hold on to your wigs, this thing blows.
