A weekly newsletter with designy things
In this interview former president Barack Obama identifies the greatest threats to the American experiment, explains why he’s still hopeful, and opens up about his new book, “A Promised Land” his memoir (part 1 of 2).
Michal Malewicz talks about the incorrect approach many design tools take when talking about “collaboration”. I agree, it seems weird to me to be working together at the same time in the same design file, or having a client watch you design. 🥺 (Via Halfvet)

This leading experience design agency works for the world’s most renowned brands—including Google, Apple, Patagonia, and Airbnb. And they are now …part of DEPT. 😳

They screenprinted this Space Shuttle Poster, which hangs on my home-office wall. 🥰

I was a huge fan of The Fresh Prince in the 90s (I vividly remember trying to duplicate the logo) and now – 30 years later – HBO is bringing the Banks family back together! 😍
