    It made us feel sort of cool a couple days ago to get a press release from people in Sweden. Here’s the info they sent on a hot, new Swedish design conference called Designboost.

    Designboost is a completely novel concept on the Swedish design market. It will be annual, different, international and will penetrate questions of current interest on design in a broad perspective and put them on the agenda in the society at large. Founders of Designboost are Peer Eriksson and David Carlson together with City of Malmö and Region Skåne. This year´s theme is sustainable design.

    Designboost will take place for the first time 17-19 October 2007. It consists of boost meetings, boost chats and a boost happening (formerly known as ; workshops, lectures and exhibition.) This years Designboost has sustainable design as it`s overall theme, an issue that is as pressing as it is difficult to pinpoint.

  • How Freelancing Made Me a Better Writer

    Interesting advice from Chris Garrett over at Copyblogger.

    Improving your writing can be difficult when you are constantly writing about the same things, day after day. You know you need to mix things up, but that’s often easier said than done.

    While I have suggested in the past that we all need to break out of our daily writing ruts and mix it up once in a while, actually finding the motivation to do that can be challenging. If, like me, simply desiring to improve might not be enough, you have to find a way to be compelled into action.

    What got me going was taking on freelance writing projects.

    Keep reading.

    Did you see Britney Spears on the MTV VMA’s last night? Just retire already. The video isn’t on YouTube yet, but you can catch a clip here.

    Also, Perez Hilton has a pretty rowdy rant about the whole thing followed by a whopping 3,300+ comments about it already this morning. Here’s how it begins:

    Dear Britney,

    Fuck you!

    FUCK YOU!!!!!!!

    We are insulted, offended and disgusted by your “performance” at the VMAs.

    Are you fucking serious???

    What you did was disrespectful to your few remaining fans. And it was disrespectful to MTV!

    You didn’t even try!!!!!

    You should have just canceled, bitch.

    In the spirit of telling it like it is for those who submit to our site, John Johnston definitely has a handful of good work in his book – especially in the ‘special projects’ and ‘scenes’ sections of his site. We’re luke warm on the rest of it though. Again, to us this seems like a case of trying to be the shooter for every client and every occasion instead of choosing a style, truly perfecting it and weeding out the rest of the stragglers. Feel free to judge for yourself and let us know if you see it differently.
