January 2009 Update

I’ve made it through the first month of the year and in spite of the fledgling economy, have managed to stay pretty busy. I have a lot of ideas in the pipeline, and am always interested in suggestions and feedback, so if there is something you’d like me write about – let me know! You can email me, comment on this post or @ message me on twitter.

Upcoming Interview Series

As mentioned in my 2008 Wrap up, I have arranged some interviews for the CMD+Shift Design Blog and you can expect to see those in upcoming posts. My first interview is with Kristine Johnson of Cognition Studio, a Seattle-based design firm that specializes in design and illustration for the Medical Industries. Kristine’s interview goes over her life/work balance, thoughts on the future of print design as well as a video tour of her home office space!

Upcoming interviews also with Michelle Goodman — writer, blogger, and freelance extraordinaire of the Anti 9to5 Guide and Niki Brown, web and print designer (part time freelancer), and blogger from Boston.
