Unite is good, but if unite is ur fav u r basic. Goin with intersect.
Thanks for the clarification, Al. We have this constant debate going about which is more useful: speaking from our personal perspective or trying to talk about higher level concepts divorced from our own experience. There are pitfalls of both approaches. As you've pointed out, there is an imp...
Did you have a chance to listen to the episode, Eric? We did our best to talk about why not many "creatives" are in management positions, and discussed some of the challenges those of us that are face.
We like to start the show with some lighter banter, which we feel makes the conversation more natural, but we know isn't for everyone. I'm hoping you can help me understand how we were "patting each other on the back for being super designers". I hope our conversations never com...

If you'd like to skip directly to the conversation about grids, go to 30 minutes in, or use this link: https://soundcloud.com/onthegriddesign/ep122#t=30:19
Designer News! We're getting ready to open the floodgates on our new time tracking application, but I would love to have some of the keen eyes from DN testing in these last few weeks to help us put the final polish on the app. Help us out?
Hip, hip hooray!
Oh, we're everywhere, Paul... Thanks for the kind words!
