I'M EXCITED to share my second Dispatch with new links, appearances and workshops to announce.
But first, let's talk about the image above. That's from an all-hands meeting at LifeLock I sketchnoted in January. I love that quote so much, I've created an 11 x 17 poster from the art you can download and print. Grab the PDF and enjoy.
We have a winner!
Congrats to Leslie Mollner, who wins the The Designer's Pricing Class, a $200 value, from my friends at nuSchool. Leslie is a former college librarian and is currently in training as a web designer and front-end developer. Go Leslie!
♥ The Shape of Things to Come - I enjoyed this long, detailed look at Apple's Jony Ive, written by Ian Parker at the Atlantic. If you're curious about Ive and his design process, this is a great read.
♥ The DeLorean DMC-12 is an outlier's legacy - As an 80s guy who loves Back to the Future, I thoroughly enjoyed this short video from Petrolicious about Geoff Ombao's classic 1982 DeLorean.
♥ Creating Content with Markdown Video - Markdown Jedi Brett Terpstra uses video to teach markdown, a lightweight writing syntax that makes a plain text file the easiest way to create formatted HTML, PDF, and even Word documents (yuck). I wrote both of my books in markdown and loved every minute of it. Save 35% on Brett's video with code PEACHPIT35.
♥ Sketchnote Moleskine Sketchbook Re-Run Questionnaire - I'm talking with my friends at Moleskine about a possible limited edition re-run of these custom branded Sketchnote Moleskine Sketchbooks. Gimme feedback!
