Channel

Our Channel is where you can learn more about life at H&W – see what inspires us and encourages us to share our thoughts. It usually concerns the world of design, but not always. Channels work best when there’s a back and forth, so please feel free to jump in.

Phew!!! Hard to believe it has been 5 days since Dom's Experimental Typography workshop at the @rgdhub DesignThinkers conference. What a great group and what a great experience.

Dominic is hosting his Experimental Typography workshop at the @rgdhub DesignThinkers conference this coming Thursday. He is looking forward to cutting, pasting, painting and getting messy with the participants.

Sometimes the best things arrive in the mail. Dom just received a package in a pizza box that contained original issues of @raygunmagazine, Speak magazine, and Sweater magazine. Amazing editions of magazines have influenced designers for years. Thank you @salonenliisa
The work of the great @davidcarson @ashworthchris, @martinvenezky, P. Scott Makela (RIP) and Laurie Haycock Makela.

I am often asked by designers and colleagues how it is that I love going into first meetings or pitch situations. I find designers experience a massive amount of anxiety on that first face-to-face — they self-impose pressure. I understand why.

‘Constraint’ is somewhat of a strange word to me. On a superficial level the word seems to connote such negativity – all about limits and restrictions.
