A Game of Ads for Game of Thrones   March 26, 2019

Spring has officially arrived, and while that means warmer days are ahead, it also means something far more monumental is on its way. Every day, there is a palpable air of excitement. Anxieties run higher and patience runs thinner—until the day many of us have been waiting over a year for arrives. Yes, spring is here. But more importantly, winter Continue Reading

Lessons from the Bauhaus 100 Years On   February 20, 2019

In design school, in addition to a practical education in the use of programs and the principles of design, I gained a thorough survey of art history. One of my favorite eras to learn about—and maybe the most relevant to design—was the Modernist era of the early 20th century. Countless artistic movements emerged from this time, and number one among Continue Reading

Dunkin’: A Rebrand Done Right   January 22, 2019

As a designer, I like to follow many design blogs and feeds. I love reading about new trends and concepts, but one thing that never fails to get my attention is when major companies undergo rebrands. This is because they are usually followed by a flurry of articles on why the new rebrand fails and why it was a step Continue Reading

Skill Up for the New Year   January 15, 2019

At the end of every year, people around the world begin crafting lofty resolutions, lists filled with things they’ll likely abandon by February, or March if they’re lucky. Societally, we do this out of tradition. And that puts a lot of pressure on us to come up with something unique to achieve. But often, we just repeat a failed resolution Continue Reading

Design for Better   October 30, 2018

As designers, we’ve worked tirelessly to hone a craft we hold near and dear to our hearts—stemming from sleepless nights in the matte room to countless hours staring into blue light rays. So, we often get into a mindset of feeling like we’re owed something for our devotion. Whether that’s a killer portfolio piece, a self-congratulatory award to put on Continue Reading

Uber’s Constant Rebranding Won’t Fix Neglected Company Culture   October 23, 2018

I grew up, as I’m sure we all did, reciting a rule that was engrained in my memory from the first time a police officer came to my elementary school for a fundamental safety lesson: never get in a stranger’s car. That’s why it’s incredible that, flash forward to today, I hop into strangers’ cars at least once a week, Continue Reading
