Kelli Anderson: Design to Challenge Reality

The New York Times Utopian alternative

Kelli Anderson challenges the convention.
Watch her inspiring + thought provoking TED talk, and check her blog too.
Aha(!) moments guaranteed.


Type of people #2

Recent reading and writing  lead me to  Tauba Auerbach.
Dedicated to those who have a hard time making decisions (myself included!).

And to those who love to read (aesthetic theory for the one below)

And to those who love to read yet find a peculiar joy in exploring encrypted messages.


Post Typography’s Greatest Misses – Artist Talk

Wednesday, November 9, 2011 at 6pm*
Northeastern University, Shillman Hall
115 Forsyth Street
Boston, MA 02115

Nolen Strals and Bruce Willen of the high-aiming Baltimore design studio Post Typography give a behind-the-scenes peek at the design process, illustrated with never-before-seen projects that fell short, missed the mark, or were blown off-target by the fickle winds of client taste.

*seniors: post class activity!


Though shared in the past with students (hello sophomores!) I just came across a Thonik video. Enjoy!

Be Careful to Take Risks

With another (busy) semester ahead, I was contemplating about my ability to dedicate time to Room357. But, after a long silent break, we’re back.
As always, any contribution will be happily posted!
Happy spring semester!
