Another designer in Brooklyn. I delete tweets because it feels good.

That’s not a camp collar. That’s a bowling shirt, and we all know it.

I grew up on PBS, and I’d be so happy if there was a mass revival of Julia Child appreciation the same way there has been for Fred Rogers and Bob Ross.

I also love this site on a superficial level because of the design—Quadraat in one size in black and warm red, just like the first edition of Shape of Design!

Sekki (small seasons)—short periods of the year, grounded in nature, according to Japanese and Chinese tradition.

Pigs can't look up. But I could pick a pig up one night and raise it into the sky and tilt this pig ever so gentle. I can make sure this pigs eyes line up with the stars. Imagine seeing the stars 4the first time.I want 2b treated that kindly and see the stars for the first time.

Well, well. Looking forward to reading this later: “Distribution of sans serifs in German-speaking foundries during the nineteenth century”

That’s a pretty good encapsulation. Shows that shipping and executing are two different things entirely.

Right. I don’t know is the breaking point, but it’s definitely not something to string together at length.

Right. That’s why I said “If design sprints are sprints...” If it’s a generic term for a duration of time at some workplaces, I’d have reservations about the word bc it suggests pace, too. But not everyone feels that way, which I get.

I work alone, so I’m not the person to answer this. But because I work alone, I have plenty of experience to say that one person alone does not change a culture.

This point is super obvious to many, but it’s something I needed to hear from others and learn for myself, so I thought I’d share.

Also: it’s cool we’re all talking about burnout, but let’s curb some of the personal responsibility? Burn out is also fueled by cultural & systemic problems related to work & turning systemic problems into personal responsibility is another sure-fire way to burn out.

Extending the metaphor: marathoners train and run differently. You don’t get a marathon’s 42k distance by running it like it’s 400m over and over.

On my mind: If design sprints are sprints, they should be short durations of heightened activity at a faster-than-normal pace. Then: rest. They shouldn’t be immediately followed with another sprint. That's not 2 sprints—that's one mega-sprint and a fast way to burn out.
