I had a surprise package delivery from the UK this morning, and in the box was a complimentary copy of Design Genius by Gavin Ambrose. I was asked to contribute work to this book as well as a brief interview about craft and design. I am pleased with how much of my work is showcased, and how well I articulated my thoughts in the interview.
I was so excited to see this book in person that I could’ve jumped up and down. I hadn’t expected to receive a contributor copy, because it doesn’t often happen.
Design Genius celebrates the creative thought processes of 69 leading artists, designers, creative agencies, animators, illustrators and typographers. While highlighting key design techniques and theories, the visual curiosities presented in this book aim to engage, provoke and inspire.
Whether you are new to design, or a seasoned expert, the many layers of information provided by this book mean it has something for everyone. Readers will delight in the visual and tactile effects of a number of subtle design features, as well as the vast array of illustrations on display. In-depth discussions with the creatives themselves as well as more practical design tips will also help you to discover the power of your own creative problem-solving skills.
Design Genius will be published by Bloomsbury Books in October 2014.

Opus Art Supplies just released a beautiful new video campaign this morning, to inspire people to put aside the negative voices and create in every way possible. I make an appearance in the video along with 17 other artists. You’ll probably recognize the paper cut word Create from last year.
Check out this blog post mentioning the full list of artists. The video was shot and edited by the talented, Ryan Mund. (He doesn’t have a website but you can contact him at: me(at)rymu(dot)ca ).
