IdN 15th Anniversary Book

March 16th, 2010 · Comments Off

I’ve always loved IdN. Beautifully-produced, eclectic subject matter and paired with a DVD of moving goodies, I treat myself to one or two issues per year.

Remember Büro Destruct?

March 9th, 2010 · 2 Comments

The original Büro Destruct book came out while I was attending Emily Carr.  It made an impression on our class, capturing some of the design trends occurring at that moment in time.
