I just pre-ordered mine. And I would have bought it eventually but with the list of web heroes attached to this book, I couldn’t wait. And Jason’s design powers didn’t make the purchase any harder.

Read about Jason Santa Maria’s design process.

And go get a copy!

Seth Godin’s Linchpin. I got mine today.

Seth Godin is an awesome author/blogger. He changed the way I look at marketing and spreading ideas. I’ve read 7 of his books and look forward to the next.

He’s put together an e-book about called What Matters Now. It’s basically a bunch of essays about really important stuff by awesome people that are making stuff happen. And it’s stuff you need to be thinking about.

Go download it here and check out Seth’s blog here.

Letter Case

Graphic Design & Web Design

Letter Case was my one-man design shop based in Los Angeles, CA.
I ran it for 2 years until I joined Typekit in January 2011.

In my spare time I've been learning to program by building my first web application.
A simple tool called Talkative to help people publish their talks on the web.

My current project is The Briefcase. A blog and podcast.
It's a place for me to create and publish stuff.

Thanks for checking out my blog. Cheers!

Simplicity is harder than it looks.
