Last month or so we finally published our “Evolution of a Hipster” photo project. It’s a follow up to this one from 2009. I used Jess from Lady Flashback and Ryan Vogel as models, with Maddy Booth from SCAD as our photographer. Brittany and I produced and managed the shoot, wrote the copy, and I created the final graphic.
Back at the beginning of May, I was in Chicago for the HOW Design Live conference. It was amazing — I’d never been to the conference before, and have always wanted to go. I got to see some of my favorite, most inspiring designers speak up close, and was totally in awe.
During the week, we put on a dinner party series at Ada Street where we invited several design influencers who were in town for HOW Design. We talked about print vs digital design, advice for young designers, and the importance of side projects. I led the conversation and did all of the hand lettering for the title cards and lower thirds.
