This Monday will be the first anniversary of my starting this blog – which I did to bring to light great ideas. And that’s why I’m happy to write about The Haiti Poster Project. It’s a call to all art directors, designers and artists to create their own limited edition posters that will be sold […]


For a while now, The Denver Egoist has not only been the main voice of the Denver ad community, they’ve been one of my favorite spots to visit for great creative, insightful and entertaining commentary, and a mix of stuff you don’t see elsewhere.
