There are times when this photo sums up my feelings walking into a room to present, pitch, or start a project…if I’m not careful I’ll be discovered for a fraud!

Zoolander is much deeper than you think

Movies teach lessons…like Zoolander.

I really like movies…alot. If you ask my wife she’ll tell you that I’m “obsessed” (I am). A silly favorite of mine is the movie Zoolander which features a male model (Ben Stiller) who has been mind controlled to assassinate the prime rib of Micronesia (spoiler alert). …

WHEEWW!! What an article! You nailed it on the head. The advent of this new technology will be life changing and it is now a wave that will probably eventually crash a bit (how high and how hard is hard to tell) but after its washed over everyone no one will be the same.

This is often how I feel my designs look after a bad critique session. I actually knew of a professor who would make students throw their work away…that never happened to me of course.

It’s highly doubtful that a designer nails a project in the first attempt. More often than not the design solution is found somewhere after the multiple iterations. It’s not impossible to hit the nail on the head the first try but its definitely not likely. It takes a set of…

Its time to start thinking about your holistic customer journey as your most effective tool for marketing your brand.

A couple weeks ago I was part of a small panel discussion at the University of Minnesota.
