Oh how I resent email

As much as there are applications making this a less painful process, it still just sucks the productivity out of you…

“Samsung says it refined its focus, but that’s not really true: there are still too many features, too many options, too many weird ideas about how we want to use our phones. It’s just all been tossed in a pile, thrown under a blanket, and swept into the corner where we hopefully won’t notice. The S5’s settings menu is 61 items long, and shows by default a grid of all-but-identical circular icons. Good luck with that.” — Samsung Galaxy S5 review | The Verge (via thisistheverge)

EXACTLY. Sales driven design will never win.

Put together this letterhead really quickly for my mom.
Thought it was a cute idea so I wanted to share hahah. I’d been wrangling with an identity for her for some time, so landing on this this single black bar piano key inspiration brought a sigh of relief/giddyness.
Pretty lame and really unfinished but it’ll do for now #mvp

Can you describe briefly your process as a writer of how you would turn a germ of inspiration into a gem of an idea?
Steven King said every great story comes from the sentence ‘Wouldn’t it be funny if…’ and I think that’s very true. Experience strained through imagination is the way to go.
